Default Your go-to CLP Help wanted

Recently I did a review of cold bluing products and in that review I included corrosion resistance but used only BC Barricade. I stated that I intend to do a review of a variety of gun-centric rust inhibitors. Im amassing (my wife says hoarding) quite a stock pile of CLP products focusing on the “P” aspects. To that end I want to make sure I have a comprehensive list of products gun owners might use to stave off rust on their firearms so Im coming to you for suggestions of which products I should secure for this evaluation. Ive scrubbed the store shelves of Gander and Cabelas and Bass Pro and Farm and Fleet and Fleet Farm as well as online outlets for rust inhibitors that cant easily be found. Id like to do a side by side evaluation of about 15 or 20 products and want to know what everybody uses to keep your gun rust free. I figure that by the time I buy the most common 15 or so that would cover the lion’s share of what the average guy uses.

Im focusing on manufactured/commercial brands and wont be evaluating home brews or gunsmith “secret recipes”. So please list em up and tell me that no evaluation would be complete without including brand “X”. I plan to post this request in a few different areas on the forum to attract as many suggestions as possible because some guys are hunters an others are only target shooters or only waterfowl hunt but don’t deer hunt so if you see it multiple times you need only reply in one thread. Thanks for your help.

Based on posts and PM’s here and on other sites where I made the same request, I begun to generate a list of the rust inhibitors that I will secure for this evaluation. The product list thus far is. In no particular order

G96 CLP

Eezox gun care

M-Pro 7

Gun Slick Gun Seal Rust preventative

Breakfree CLP

Frog Lube

Ballistol

Birchwood Casey Barricade

Rem oil (with Moistureguard)

Rem oil (regular)

Shooters Choice Rust Prevent

Strike Hold

Viking tactics Rand CLP

Hornady One Shot Gun Cleaner & Dry Lube

Clenzoil

WD-40 (blue and yellow can)

WD-40 specialist Corrosion inhibitor

Fluid Fill Rust and corrosion protection

MILTECH-1

Hoppe’s Lubricating oil (with weatherguard)

Hoppe’s MDL (Moisture Displacing Lubricant)

Hoppe’s Elite gun oil

3-In-One oil

Pennzoil synthetic oil

Im sure the list will grow. Additional suggestions welcomed

Time to break out the credit card. Based on web searches, the shipping on some of this stuff is nearly as high as the product itself. This may end up costing a small fortune but I will have a lifetime supply of gun care products when Im finished.

Still waiting on the brown truck, FedX and the mailman to stop buy to deliver all the purchases but I think im about done buying gun care products for this evaluation. I’ll stop at 40 products. Here is the list. I’ll be at a gun show on Friday and unless there is a product there I don’t have on the list. I think I’ll get going on the evaluation.

I picked up two more products at a gun show on Saturday and I have another gun show this weekend to see if I can find more while I wait for the final mail ordered products to reach my doorstep. Then I can begin the process of evaluating all of them. I should be somewhere in the range of about 45 products.
