Re: Gun oil??

The army is still using CLP, I think they have some sort of deal with them were they get a percent on the profits from them selling the stuff because we use it. Thats all you here when you go to qualifications is use CLP, don't forget your CLP. Anyway CLP is crap when it comes to cleaning but it does a good job keeping your barrel from rusting. I like using Shooters Choice solvent and Rem Oil, they keep my barrels looking new.

Re: Gun oil??

In my rifles I use Kroil oil as it is very light and it also penertrates to give good coverage. The excess appears to be easy to remove before shooting. I also read recently a 50:50 blend of Kroil and Hoppe 9 Solvent is recommended so i my give that a try.

Re: Gun oil??

I have been using a 50:50 mixture of Kroil Oil and Marvel Mystery Oil for years. One patch, about half saturated with this mixture and then about three or four dry patches to clean it out. That Kroil is low viscosity stuff and really gets into the pores. I use it on my CM and SS barrels during break in. They seem to clean up much quicker once seasoned, especially the SS barrels.
