Interesting reading, I was disappointed on how bad Militec-1 did since I use it, but BF CLP did excellent in this unofficial test. I wish FP-10 and Mobil-1 Syn 15w-50 was tested.

Thanks for the link!! We had an apparently very knowledgeable member here a year or so ago who also described Breakfree CLP as an excellent lubricant and protectant. He also complained that Miltec-1 was not a good protectant.

Crap! I just switched from CLP to Militec-1. I've never found anything that works better than CLP...back to the old standard, I guess.

Try the Firepower FP-10 CLP. Raymond

Is that the same thing as the Shooters Choice FP10? I quit using it because I was getting rust that I wasn't getting with Break-Free.

Anybody else notice Militec-1 was missing from the second test results?

What rusted, and what were the conditions?

I read somewhere on this site that Shooters Choice and FP-10 are exactly the same product. I was an user of Militec-1 and was pretty disappointed when I read the article, I can say that Militec-1 seems to evaporate after a few days, it doesn't stay on either. But I just got my free packet sample from FP-10 (use to be a nice size sample bottle) today and will begin to try it out. My problem with BF CLP is that it gets gummy on me.

That depends on how old the bottle of Shooters Choice FP-10 is. George Fennell at Firepower said he updated the Firepower FP-10 formula to meet the MIL-L-63460D the first of last year. If I remember correctly he said that SC did not get the new formula until the mid part of the year. Do a search on 1911.com for FP-10 and start reading. He also discussed it here at one point a few months ago. The bottle of SC I bought last week from my local gunshop was the old formula.Its been there at the shop for awhile though. As per Mr.Fennell the old formula needs to be shaken and the new does not. The old formula has a cloudy(milky looking) amber color after shaking. The new formula is a clear amber color and will not be cloudy. HTH Raymond

He is a link from FP-10 themselves and it directly compares to Breakfree CLP. The pictures speaks volumes. [url]http://www.fp10.com/FP-10testing/index.htm[/url]

After reading that test I did a test just like this one about a year ago to see if I would get more or less the same results and posted it here. Don't know if it can be found or not but anyway. I have used Eezox on all my guns and started using Militec1 as well at that time so I was interested. I did get the same results no BS. Militec1 sucked as a preservative/corrosion resistant. I covered bare shiny slightly sanded large nails with some CLP products and sprayed them with salt water. My results were: EEZOX #1(by far) Breakfreeclp #2 (excellent) Militec1 #3 (rotten) in fact militec one rusted almost as quickly as the non coated (control) nail. The Breakfree nail took about one week and the Eezox nail never rusted or looked any different from day one. I tried everything to rust that last nail but gave up. I was spraying the nails 2 to 3 times a day and covering with water in doing so. Then leaving them outside to the other elements.

Blank, I saw the same letter Militec-1 sent to the Gov't, that is pretty pathetic and made me respect Militec-1 even less when they claim the US govt is getting US soliders killed in the Mid East by not using Militec. I assume the govt tested it and it sucked, that is why they use a CLP like BF, IMO. I already tossed the rest of my Militec in the trash, it's good for that I can say!

I don’t know that I’d throw it away!! Oddly enough, in my experience at least, Miltec-1 seems to be a pretty good (albeit expensive) nitro solvent.

As a lube I think it(Militec 1) is fine.....better than fine...but like stated above it simply sucks as a protectant. And for there website way of blaming the Mil. for deaths......not cool! Especially while troops are in theatre with their lives on the line. Doesnt seem like a smart way to gather respect! If you like BF CLP try some EEZOX if you run across it. It's alot like BF but better at protecting. The same in CL department. I use both. Whatever is cheaper at my local gun store
