Is Ballistol CLP Any Good?

Is Ballistol CLP any good?

I get this question emailed to me quite frequently. Ballistol is a cleaner, lubricant and protectant or CLP. It has been around for a very long time and has a myriad of uses from leathers to wood and metals. I have used it on several guns including an AK-47 and several Glocks.

From my experience using Ballistol on various guns and from my gun product tests, I have to definitely say that Ballistol is very good and actually better in the cleaning arena than any other CLP. Ballistol cleans carbon and powder fouling very well as long as you let it soak for about 10 minutes. It’s also a great lubricant and protectant. Ballistol also mixes with water for all you people that shoot corrosive ammo.
