Gun Cleaner Test – BreakFree CLP

I had some leftover powder fouling that wasn’t cleaned after a previous gun cleaner test so I wanted to take advantage of the situation and try another CLP.

Does BreakFree CLP clean carbon fouling easily?

Let’s put it to a test….

OK…here’s the mess and the challenger….BreakFree CLP vs burnt on powder fouling/residue. I’m going to apply the BreakFree very liberally onto the fouling and let it soak for 10 minutes and then attempt to wipe it clean.

Well….some of the carbon came off but not much. I scrubbed the fouling with several patches and more BreakFree CLP but it’s not coming off easily. If you enjoy scrubbing, then BreakFree CLP might be a good choice for you.

Conclusion: BreakFree CLP is a good lubricant and protectant but it certainly falls short on cleaning.
