Product Details Ballistol (Editors Choice) Skin Safe: Slightly alkaline in nature; neutralizes the effect of sweat and skin oils and non-carcinogenic Environmentally Friendly: Ballistol is biodegradable Proven: Ballistol has has proven itself for over 100 years See It Hoppe’s #9. Includes a full bottle of the 14.9 ml Needle Point Hoppe's No. High-viscosity oil refined to perfection Extra-long lasting, Does not harden, gum or expire One bottle of model 1003 and one bottle of model 3060. Approved by US Military to clean & Preserve firearms. One stop shop for cleaning, lubricating, and preserving. Doesn't freeze in cold environments and does not gum up. Over 100 years ago the German military requested an 'all-around' oil and cleaner for their rifles and equipment, the product that was formulated is now called Ballistol. This 3-in-one lubricant cleaner protectant can be used for a wide range of applications such as wood, leather and firearms, just to name a few. Cleaning with Ballistol will save you time, minimize the need for brushing, and it also forms a protective film on your glock overtime. Due to its slight alkalinity (8 - 8.5), Ballistol neutralizes and dissolves black powder and corrosive ammo residue. Since Ballistol neutralizes, instead of eats away at the fowling, it is safe to have residual Ballistol, but it is recommended to wipe off any access lubricant. One of the major advantages of using Ballistol as a lubricant and cleaner is it will never gum up or harden, which can be detrimental to any gun, and you never have to worry what you put it on. Ballistol is a high quality product and even some of the more notable people in the firearm community use it, like Hickok45. We would recommend anyone and everyone to use Ballistol on there Glock, and it is what we use on our own. Of course Hoppe’s will be on this list, what kind of gun owner would I be without having a bottle or two of Hoppe’s No. Hoppe’s has been around for some time, since 1903 to be exact and got its name from Frank August Hoppe who mixed nine chemicals together and created a cleaner that will last generations. Hoppe’s is another classic choice for cleaning your Glock but you will need to get the Hoppes bore cleaner and the oil/lubricator since its not a 3-in-one. When applying Hoppe’s to your gun you won’t have to worry about any corrosive properties, it acts as a rust inhibitor and any leftover solvent will be evaporated but do make sure you give it a good wipe after applying the solvent. Hoppe’s lubricant is a high-quality lube that is long lasting, does not harden, gum or expire, which is exactly what we want when applying it to any striker fired gun. The Hoppes lubricant also comes with a fine nose point so you can easily apply it between the rail grooves and on the extractor or any where else that has metal on metal contact. CLP is another great multi-use product, for cleaning, lubing and preserving your firearm. CLP is a safe product that does not corrode or affect the wood or polymer materials in your firearms. We use CLP anytime we will be keeping a firearm in the safe for a long period of time, since it acts also as a preservative but CLP does make an even longer lasting preservative here.
CLP is known for having minimal burn off, and can withstand a wide range of temperatures with no adverse affects to your firearm. CLP is also on the US military approved list for firearm cleaners/lubricators. CLP has a long-lasting lubricating film that is supposed to reduce adhesion of sand, grit or other abrasives which cause wear and failure. Just like ballistol CLP creates a protective film overtime, which helps from rusting and pitting.
No matter what lubricant and cleaner you choose you will still need to apply it to your firearm.
