Break free was designed
to replace LSA gun cleaning liquid.

BreakFree CLP has been standered military issue for decades.
Cleaner Lubricant and Protectant.


I currently use Slip 2000 EWL
But CLP is still in my cleaning kit.

It does everything it need to more the satisfactorily. Are there better cleaners? Yes. Better Lubes? Yes. Better preservators? Yes. But it gets the job done, every time, cheap and easy.

Dee_Dub,

If I had nothing else I would not hesitate to use Breakfree to clean any of my AR's. Breakfree is fantastic to use out in the field as a one type of cleaner and lub.

All I use on ARs is Breakfree CLP. Bought a jug of it awhile back.

When I'm shooting corrosive ammo I use windex. The ammonia D is great for cleaning up after using any corrosive ammo. Break free to clean and lube the action.

Getting the scent out is easy because there's many wonderful scents to choose from. Right now I'm a lemony fresh guy... But I used to be more into pine. J/K hehehe

If you let your gun sit standing up in a safe, the breakfree will eventually run and when you go to use your rifle it will be dry.

I switched to froglube paste for the AR-15, when it heats up it turns liquid, but when storing it does not run.

Also Military Break free is a different (better) formulation than the commercial stuff, but I still like frog lube better for the AR.

For Barrel Cleaning I just use Hoppes, or Butches Bore Shine if I want to clean out copper, break free is ok, but some say teflon will leave deposits (Commercial Break free), also it isn't that great of a cleaner for the barrel anyways. Frog Lube cleans the BCG and upper out fine though.

I've been using Breakfree CLP for general cleaning and lubrication. For barrels, I am using Hoppe's or Butch's if Hoppe's can't do the job well enough. For high wear moving parts, I use paste lubrication suck as Shooter's Choice in a syringe. That keeps the lube from flinging around.
