My new upper has some grey powderish color on it...probably just light scratches or skin cells left behind.

What is good to clean/wipe it off with? And then what to use to wipe down to leave a protective film?

Tuf-cloth, silicone cloth??? But is that too dry for the first application? Some breakfree frist????

CLP is the god among all lubes. I will even cure cancer and solve the mid-east crisis.

CLP is far from god, it was invented for the military to use on everything... rifles, tires, tank treads...

It does work very well with ARs though, and will give you that silky gloss finish on a new lower. Just leave your lower in a container of CLP overnight then wipe it dry.

I was joking and serious at the same time. CLP can litterally be used on everything an AR needs. From darkening th grey of an A2 stock to lubing the action.

My stag upper I had came with a chalky film on it. Whiped it down with CLP and it looked great and the finish was actually pretty good.

Where can you buy a godly quantity of CLP, say enough to fill a container?
I can't seem to find anything larger than a 12oz bottle.

You don't have to submerge the lower and leave it overnight or buy a $93.00 bottle. Just generously spray it and leave it inside a plastic bag for a couple of hours...:D
