Keeping it Clean with CLP

Rust, dirt and carbon residue buildup can all cause problems if you don’t clean your handgun regularly. Humid environments, exposure to moisture, and simply using your firearm outdoors allow rust to form. And, over a period of use, carbon residue builds up. If rust or residue accumulates in the barrel, they could affect the flight path of the projectile.

In other words, the bullet won’t go where you intend it to. The other thing that can go wrong is your handgun won’t work when you want it to. Both of these possibilities are a safety risk, especially if you carry a firearm for personal protection.

An all-in-one cleaning, lubricating and protectant firearm solution like Break Free® CLP® will prevent these issues from happening. A cleaner, lubricant and protectant, CLP cleans firing residue and other contaminants from the bore, moving parts and exterior of firearms while reducing friction and protecting from corrosion at the same time.


Break Free CLP works in three ways. First, it cleans by loosening dirt and corrosion that can damage metal. It also displaces trapped grit and frees sticky, rusted or corroded mechanisms.

Second, the formula’s lubricating qualities reduce friction, retard wear and stop build-up of foreign matter.

Finally, the CLP solution provides a protective coating that shields all metal from rust and corrosion.

The one-step solution was originally developed for the U.S. Military to perform in the most extreme conditions. Think saltwater immersion. Arctic temperatures of -65° F. Scorching heat of 475° F.

Break Free CLP won’t deteriorate under extreme pressure, either. One of the problems with brands that contain wax-based materials is that they can degrade and solidify into a gummy residue, which only adds to the problem of foreign matter that builds up with use.

Protect the handgun that protects you, by cleaning it regularly to ensure it remains in perfect working order.
