Is there a dry film lubricant(permanent preferred) that when used in the bolt carrier and on the bolt will eliminate carbon buildup?

I think the general consensus around this board is that CLP is the only luibricant. My opinion of dry sprayes is that they don't hold up worth a damn keving67

Only two good choices: 1) CLP 2) CLP Take your pick.

I have used it on a few none gun related purposes but it seems to get tacky if it is exposed to elements like duct or gun powder or carbon. Stick with CLP Keving67

C-3 Products unscented gun oil and also bore cleaner/solvent. Can't use Breakfree/CLP anymore without an allergic reaction. Just my .02

I'm in with the miltech crew, but I've probably got 3 gallons of CLP in the garage.

Here it is: (Also good review by Firearms enthusiasm) Also on sale at any Guns Dealer. [url]http://www.militec-1.com/[/url]
Teddy Jacobson, Pistolsmith, Actions by "T" - I have been perfecting my handgun action work for the past 25 years. Very few people, if any, know as much about trigger work as I do. In order to have a glass smooth action, using a superior lubrication is essential...

By Gun World Magazine: "All semi-auto pistols require some lubricant for reliability and to prevent excessive wear. I'd been using Remington Rem Oil for some time. I like it for the internal parts of revolvers and the trigger mechanism of my glock, but it seemed a little light for the slide rails and barrel of my semi-auto. Previously, I'd picked up a couple of bottles of Militec-1 at the Secret Service matches, and found that it did an excellent job of lubricating my Colt .45. Militec-1 is a polymer that's thicker than Rem Oil and does not evaporate as fast. It also bonds to metal when the gun is hot and provides a very slick and wear-resistant surface. I used it on my Glock, and after several sessions at the range, the slide cycled noticeably smoother."

Hopps, Outers, Breakfree. I use them all and have never had a problem. And my AR's are as clean as they can be.
Link Posted: 1/17/2002 12:07:43 PM EDT
yeah, saw that -- problem is they only seem to sell wholesale :P Is there anywhere i can get a small sample bottle of, say, each major cleaner and lubricant -- hoppes, clp, etc?
Link Posted: 1/17/2002 12:27:24 PM EDT
Go here......They sell by the bottle: [url]http://www.proendurance.com/[/url]

I have used Militec and CLP. Not being a chemist, they both seem to work well. So I used my own version of the scientific method. I like the smell of CLP better. Brings back fond memories [:)]

If you want a lot of credible (sounding, at least) info re: lubricants, do a search on topic and reply posts of member “CH1” and check out what he has to say. He also lists many vendors for various products. He sounds like he’s head and shoulders above most of us in this area (that or he’s certainly got me fooled!). His big complaint about Militec, which I used to be a big fan of, is that it doesn’t protect very well.
