I just took apart my new AR, lubed it with Eezox (similar to CLP)

the outside of the barrel is very dry. i wasnt sure if i shoudl waste eezox on this, or if i should use 3 in 1 oil like my ffl suggested. he said to let it soak overnight and wipe off the excess in the morning. "it'll smoke a little while the excess is burned off [at the range] , but then it should be good"

what do you guys use?

cool. i guess that means "3 in 1 household oil" will work

it will work but will probably burn off pretty fast.

I've used both eezox and CLP/Breakfree (the old formula).

As for lubricants, should you need a penetrating agent, I'd stick with the CLP. If you do the Eezox right it really works, but the time it takes to do it properly kills me. I'd rather sit down and clean and protect in one fail swoop.

I usually use the Eezox on the inside of the barrels of my pistols and rifles, the rails of my automatics, the ejectors of my wheelguns, and the exteriors overall if I use it at all. I try to use the CLP in instances where I don't have to worry about attracting fouling, dirt, dust, or brass.

As for cleaning, I just scrub and soak the parts in CLP, and use Brake cleaner to blast off.
