Product Description

When the United States Military issued PD-48, a purchase description of properties for a single, multi-purpose product to maintain their weaponry, it became known as the "impossible specification" because of its severe requirements. The first product to meet the challenge - Break-Free CLP. Break-Free's flagship product, CLP is a unique formulation of synthetic oils and individual proprietary ingredients which synergize in combination to do three important tasks simultaneously: Effectively Clean, Lubricate and Protect metal. Break-Free CLP is now recognized around the world as the standard by which maximum metal performance and protection is ensured.

Break-Free CLP was developed for the US military as an all purpose cleaner, lubricant and preservative for all military small arms. This is standard issue equipment for US forces to take care of their small arms in all climates and conditions. My father is a retired US Air Force small arms instructor and armorer and introduced me to Break-Free CLP several years ago. It is all I use to clean, lubricate and protect my guns. However, if you shoot Soviet/East Bloc corrosive military surplus ammunition, use a cleaner specifically designed to remove the corrosive priming residue. The US and NATO have not used corrosive priming for several decades, so Break-Free CLP may not remove corrosive priming residue.

How good is Break-Free? I can actually remember the very day I first used this decades ago.

My excellent High Standard .22 competition pistol was was failing to extract cases or sometimes chamber a new cartridge, and I was getting tired of regularly shooting alibi strings in Bullseye practice or matches. Careful cleaning and use of any number of regular, high-quality gun oils or Mobil One didn't seem to help, and the ammunition was not at fault. I resigned myself to sending the pistol off to a specialized gunsmith and sitting out a season. Then I tried this product by chance. After cleaning carefully with solvent, then stripping away all traces of old lubricant and cleaner using paint thinner, I cleaned with Break-Free and then carefully lubricated the pistol.

The next practice session that evening went smoothly without a malfunction. Coincidence? By continuing to use Break-Free to clean and lubricate, I shot tens of thousands of additional rounds without single problem. Night-and-day difference!

This product works even better as a cleaner if the product is applied at the range when you are finished firing, and perhaps while the firearms are still a bit warm. This way, the cleaner starts to penetrate and clean your firearms as you drive home. You can also then wait a day or two to clean them this way as long as the wipe down has been thorough.

In later years, I have used the Tetragun line of oils and light grease,and feel those are clearly superior. The very light grease is especially useful in particular places where you want a lubricant to last and stay put (even in very cold weather). However, since these products are difficult to find, Break-Free is still a great second choice. (Look for a moly-containing gun grease.

Waaaaaaay back when, CLP was adopted by the MIL as the issued CLP for the AR15/M16 platform of weapons. It was later used on the M60 machine gun, the 240 machine gun, and the 249 machine gun. The use of CLP ceased on the 240 and 249 once operators realized that wear was not being mitigated and that CLP offered little protection from the high operating temperatures and overall violence of the guns. They quickly transitioned to LSA and LAW, and GMD (oil, oil, and grease, respectively) to lubricate these weapons.

Knowing several former M249-ers from the military, only one of them used CLP (because he had to, and hated it) and few used LSA. Most of them used MilComm TWB25, Mobil-1, Militec, & Slip2000 EWL. They all use the below listed newer lubricants on their AR15's now.

I used it for a LOOOONG time because there was nothing else available. But, now there are alternatives. Slip 2000 EWL, Rand Nano-CLP, FIREClean, etc......all do a vastly superior job on lubricating and protecting my firearms. Further (and ironically), they also make them easier to clean than the even the LIBERAL use of BF CLP.

Also, for AR15 owners, BF CLP is a failure and here's why: it contains particulate teflon. I can't think of a worse substance to insert into what is tantamount to the combustion chamber in an automobile engine (the tail of the bolt; i.e. the gas expansion chamber) than a thin petroleum distillate liquid with suspended pieces of particulate teflon.

If anybody has every wondered why you have to scrub the base/tail of the bolt with so much effort and vigor when using CLP...it's because BF CLP actually makes this carbon build-up worse than not using BF CLP at all.

I grew up cleaning firearms with the standard solvent, brushes, patches and oils and while that certainly works moving to CLP (and a bore snake) has made after range cleaning of firearms a much quicker and more simple process. Replacing all of the different liquids in the cleaning process with CLP is both time saving and cost effective. I use both the aerosol version and the liquid in the bottle (comes with an small tube for accurate application) in the cleaning/lubricating process and have for several years. I could not be more pleased with the CLP product line.

it is simply the best fluid on earth for gun owners, because it's cheap and it conveniently does everything very well. you save time and money because you can clean and lube at the same time, you don't even need to use that much of it for it to be effective, even a small amount does an amazing job. even after it has dried off, it sticks to the metal at a molecular level so it still provides protection. only thing it does not do tremendous well is cleaning the barrel bore, although it does a decent job, for major cleaning a dedicated copper/lead remover should be used for the bores.
