    Breakfree CLP vs Frog Lube

    My cleaning routine on my rifles and shotguns has never really been more than the standard Hoppes #9 and some strategically applied oil, but a friend turned me on to Breakfree CLP when I bought my first pistol a few weeks ago, and it seems to be working pretty well so far. I started looking for a good cleaner/lubricant when I started looking for a pistol and had become interested in Frog Lube. There is a definitely a noticeable price difference, but would it be worth it? Has anyone used both that could say which they liked better?

    My usual routine for all firearms is a full cleaning with Hoppe's, a second cleaning and wipedown with BreakFree CLP, and I use Tetra Gun Grease on any moving parts.

    A lot of opinions about what is good. I made some conclusions of my own after reading this:

    I buy a lot of the "polyrazmataz" lubricant/CLP's and two of them have really impressed me. One was Tru Recoil, the other is Frog Lube.
    I clean all of my firearm's with Frog Lube these days.
    There's nothing wrong with cleaning up your guns with brake cleaner and lubing it up with some sort of oil. Think about the moving parts on your car or truck, the engine and transmission take a beating, far more than your gun and they're lubed with oil and transmission fluid (more refined oil).
    For years I lubed my guns with sewing machine oil.
    What I'm saying is; Whatever floats your boat, go for it.

    i really like clp very cost effective cleans every thing and wipes off real easy clean with clp and use rem oil and hoppes gun grease for friction parts. wirh all the shot guns and pistols i found frog lube to be exspensive and saw no diference in preformance. I clean my pistols after every shooting so it only takes 5 minutes or less rather than shooting several times and having to spend an hour or more

    it is ALWAYS better to have a gun and not need it, than to need a gun and not have it.
    Get a gun and GET TRAINING. Training is the key to making proper and responsible decisions in the use of deadly force and training is the key to expertly defending yourself in an unavoidable lethal encounter.

    I've had a friend rave about Frog Lube. I use MPro-7 cleaner and lube. No problems. My fall back is Hoppe's cleaner and Hoppe's gun oil. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Ive never used anything except breakfree. Never had a problem with it.
    I don't always open carry, but when I do I prefer DeSantis.

    Any good CLP will do the trick. If you like spending your money, that's OK but the results are going to be pretty much the same.

    Frog Lube

    Link above is to discussion on FL. I still use some Hoppe's and BreakFree + Mobil 1 on slide rails, mainly because I have a lifetime supply and then some. LOL However, on about half my pistols I've gone to FrogLube and will convert more. Can't say enough about how easy clean up is after a range visit with the FrogLubed pistols vs. those using the standard stuff. I've not noticed any abnormal wear nor any adverse effects - I love the FL - it's expensive, but worth every penny IMHO. I have the paste, liquid and their new Solvent which is also excellent.

    However, as I've posted many times, what's important is keeping your guns cleaned and well taken care of, so it really makes no difference what you use, just use it or do it. My only exception is WD40 - I love the stuff, but it will never touch any of my weapons - YMMV.
