Lightbulb Marvel Mystery Oil as CLP

Just wanted to share with us Calgunners my new CLP.

With the way the economy has been I've experimented with different solvents and oils. All the posts on breakclean, Mobil 1 has sparked me to put this out.
Marvel Mystery Oil works pretty darn good.

I've always been old school and used Hoppes#9 and Breakfree. Still use it for the bore (#9) and breakfree for cleaning (smells too good to let go)

Anyhow, one day I had the MMO on hand and decided to wipe down my K98. Little did I know that the rifle had a bit of surface rust that I didn't see. With the white rag lightly soaked with MMO, within minutes turned brown

Next thing I know I'm wiping down everything and anything that was metal. FAL handguards, barrels, tools etc. Stuff works great. What really did it for me was after I detailed a bore (patch, solvent, brush, brush, brush, patch, oil, patch). The bore seemed pretty clean, just light color of oil. Clean in my book.. Put a MMO soaked patch in for ****s and went inside to take a call.

Came back 1hr later to clean up, remembered that I still had to clear the bore of the MMO. Ran a patch through it and the damn thing looked almost black!! It's chemical properties must have lifted any last remaining residue.

Now I just don't even think of the expensive powder blast, gun scrubber, etc.. Still use the #9 for the initial bore cleaning, but afterwards on action and small parts, MMO with toothbrush on everything, blast with walmart breakclean (seems like more psi than others+cheap) and re-lube or re-grease where necessary.

Hope you guys find this useful. Just my two pesos..

Dude Marvel Mystery Oil is "old school" it's been around since 1923. CLP is not "old school".

Haha.. You are totally correct. However, MMO is new to me. I wonder if anyone else has tried it on their guns.

Since 1981, I've been using Marvels Mystery Oil on all my firearms.
Nothing new. Works great.
