At one time I had more lotions and potions than a 50 year old head cheerleader had wrinkle creams. I have since fallen back to Hoppes #9, CLP, Butch’s Bore Shine and automotive products. Use what works and what you can get.

Probably off-topic, but if I met a girl that used a perfume that smelled like Hoppe’s #9, I’d marry her!

Not perfume… but something else you may like!

Shooter Lube is awesome. I can go longer between cleanings and it does not have the odor so I can clean inside year round.

OHHBOOY!
Definently have to try this!
Thanks, Dawn!

Been using Breakfree CLP since 92 when i went in the Army and that’s what they used. Figured if it kept those M16’s made in the 1960s running , should be good for my weapons . My sons in Basic training now , just entered white phase, BRM. Will have to ask him if they still use that 20191016_163352

Hoppes 9 is good been using for years but a true clean is a hot soapy bath then rinse with hot water guns are clean and works real good for bp guns and using surplus ammo

Sorry to revive an old thread, would rather ask my question here. Thinking about switching to CLP :thinking:. Any thoughts? I’ve been using Hoppes bore cleaner and oil. I’d like to got to an all in one substance.

Do you want give it a try or do not have time to clean AND lube?
People love CLP, that’s a great product, but you won’t see any improvement other than saving time.

Hoppe’s, just a dab behind both ears. If the lady you are taking out face lights up, you remind her of her Dad and good times. She just might be a keeper…lol. If she says “What’s that smell”, time to take her home.

Hoppe’s #9 is a COPPER and carbon solvent. Not to be confused with a lubricant. As is Butches Bore Shine and a host of other ammonia based cleaners. CLP is a Lubricant and Protective agent (CLP = Clean, Lubricate, Protect) They are not interchangeable as they two do different things.

If for a rifle I will ask why are you cleaning your bore? Yes this is a trap.

Hoppe’s is a solvent for cleaning a gun but not a lubricant. Once I am done cleaning the gun I use alcohol to remove all traces of it so it won’t break down the oil I lubricate the gun with. I use CLP for field cleaning but for complete cleaning I use a separate solvent and oil.

When I say Hoppes, Im referring to the bore cleaner/ lube combo. I should have been more clear.

I have tried CLP before, I did like it, but I switched to hopped because I like the bore cleaner. (I use light doses of bore cleaner on pretty much everything. From what I’ve read, this is totally fine). I can clean my pistol without feeling like I’m putting lube places it shouldn’t be and causing gunk.
