I checked out their web site and was skeptical for a number of causes:
I haven’t used a CLP product in many years. My reasoning being that any product which is multipurpose should be a tradeoff and have inferior efficiency to a corresponding set of single objective merchandise. There may be benefits associated to decrease value, measurement, and many others. however perform efficiency has to take successful in a a number of perform product.
Once I learn concerning the “plant-based” points of the product I rolled my eyes. They added one other constraint and corresponding tradeoff.
However I agreed to evaluation their product and so they despatched me an eight ounce bottle:
I cleaned two soiled weapons with the CLP. I used to be shocked at how straightforward it was to get them clear. Essentially the most wonderful half was the cleansing of the barrels. Often there may be carbon within the edges of the grooves of my pistols. I both go away it or use some bore previous, a patch, and bronze brush to get most of it out. With this CLP I left it within the barrel for 5 of the advisable (as discovered on the again of the bottle) 2-5 minutes. I scrubbed it just a few strokes with a bronze brush it and pushed a clear patch by way of the barrel. The barrel was clear! No line of black within the edges of the grooves.
There have been different areas of the weapons, corners particularly, that by no means get very clear which had been now cleaner than they’ve ever been for the reason that weapons had been new. That is an superior cleaner! And there was no robust obnoxious scent.
However how about lubrication? The take a look at which some lubricants fail is an excessive chilly take a look at. I lubricated one gun and wiped off the surplus oil. I then put it in a zipper lock bag and put it within the deep freeze in a single day. The following morning I pull the gun out of the freezer, eliminated it from the zip lock bag, racked the slide, and exercised the hammer and set off multipole occasions. Every part labored as anticipated. I’ve seen the slide on weapons take two seconds or extra to creep ahead till they contacted the spherical which didn’t chamber. The hammer would fall so slowly they’d solely make the slightest of dent within the primer. The lubrication had was a excessive viscosity grease on the chilly temperature. With this CLP, I couldn’t detect any velocity discount.
I don’t have a fast and straightforward option to take a look at the protecting qualities, however I did have yet one more take a look at.
I took a freshly lubed gun and put it in my brass dryer. I let it dry for about an hour to see the outcomes. My common lubricant can be basically dry to the contact. Professor Pew CLP didn’t dry out to a movie. It was nonetheless barely moist.
For demanding dusty and/or sandy environments I in all probability will nonetheless use the Interflon Fin Tremendous however Professor Pew CLP will get the nod in different conditions.
