Best CLP oil for handgun

Hey guys,
Looking for a good cleaner lube protectant for my handguns. Was wondering which brands are the best. Seem to be pretty decent reviews on products like ballistol, gunzilla, weapon shield, and m-pro 7. Just wondering if there are any that anyone prefers that they use and that work well. Thanks in advance.

I use the same stuff we used on our 50 cals and 240's in the Corps.

Been using the same can of Break Free for 3yrs, but she's almost used up. Was thinking about some Gun Butter next time around, but who knows.

I think this thing is finally coming together. Still Needed: drive shafts, frame mount rails...then done son! For a while...

I hear nothing but positive about froglube. I'm going to try it on my new 300blk build as well as the pistol and ak I just bought. I'll let you know in about a month(if i remember) and let you know how they work out. Each should have about 1k rounds through em by then, maybe more.

The best one is the one you use. There are tons of arguments supporting X brand and bashing Y brand. Point being is they all seem to work.

For example some people love RemOil and others think it is too thin. I use Wilson Combat "gun grease". I have used cheap Hoppe's before.

I like Ballistol, but that was decades before this new-fangled stuff. I used that shit on and for everything, as it was intended.

I'd shudder to think what 5gals of these other lube/cleaners would cost and whether they had any other applications that would make large quantities worthwhile. That was the beauty of the Ballistol. Sure, it's relatively pricey, but available in quantity and useful for everything. My guns were, and have not been since, ever so clean when I used that stuff.

froglube

I went to a gun show and met a police officer who sells this. Told me he and other officers use it on their service weapons. That was enough for me to blindly try it. When looking into it I found out it is American made by an American vet and he donates part of the profit to vets. Then I used it. I have a 20 year old gun who a guy who grew up with guns thought it was brand new. That particular gun got cleaner the more I used it. I am forever a froglube believer!

I used to use froglube. The problem with froglube is two fold. One it takes to damn long. There is no such thing is a quick clean b/c you're supposed to heat up the metal so it can soak in. Next is if you are shooting a lot of rounds your firearm will be dripping froglube b/c when the metal heats up the pores release the froglube. I did love the stuff but again its just kind of a pain in the ass..I have since moved to rem wipes and grease for my polymer guns.

I disagree. The first seasoning takes a long time but like you said it gets trapped in the pores. No need to keep heating it up. I just wipe down and some to slides and done. Has actually sped up my cleaning time.

I just switched from TW25 to Froglube. So far so well, have applied it to most of my firearms and have had no hiccups whatsoever. It smells great and is one of the only cleaners/lubricants that I feel comfortable using in the house around pets and people. It's worth a shot in my book!

I like slip2000 EWL and fireclean. If it's a metal framed gun like 1911, sig P series, etc i like slip2000 EWG (grease instead of lube)

I use M-Pro 7 lube and cleaner on all my firearms. Makes cleanup much much easier,... especially on my Sig 522's after running 500+rounds through each of them. .22LR is famous for being dirty (like black powder) and when the powder residue combines with the wax that is on all .22LR it forms a kind of black cement & it used to take me a good while to clean the 522's receivers & breach faces. After using M-Pro 7 products it comes off with little effort now & my clean up time has been cut in half. Just my 0.02 cents.

I don't think you can go wrong with any of the products that you mentioned. I use FrogLube just because. I think mostly because it's a "green" product and I don't have to hear complaints about smell. I do have some Breakfree CLP and some GunSlick CLP. They serve my purpose as well but be advised that FrogLube eats petroleum products so do not combine. I used Breakfree and Shooters Choice grease on my Glock 20, before FrogLube, without issue. My Mosin Nagant rifles came lubed with motor oil.
