I have a lot of people contact me and ask which is a better gun cleaner, M-Pro 7 or Breakfree CLP?
Based on my experience with cleaning many guns and performing gun cleaner tests in the past 2 or 3 years….M-Pro 7 gun cleaner is much better at cleaning a fouled firearm. M-Pro 7 gun cleaner is water based and really soaks into carbon fouling, making it very easy to remove.
In my gun cleaner tests, I sprayed M-Pro 7 gun cleaner on a pile of carbon/powder fouling and let it soak for 10 minutes. I then took a single patch and wiped the carbon/fouling off. Nothing could be easier.
I did the exact same test with Breakfree CLP and the carbon did not wipe off. It required scrubbing in order to remove the carbon and a lot of scrubbing. Breakfree CLP is an excellent lubricant and protectant but not a very good cleaner.
