Be careful about Breakfree CLP anyway. It has some significant liver toxicity.
Thankfully, I only got it in my eyes and mouth one time each. You quickly learn to respect the spraynozzle and to keep your mouth closed while firing a heavily lubricated rifle when that happens. Yuck.

just keep it well lubed with whatever. I use whatevers on sale and on hand. Breakfree, rem oil, hoppes, G96, outers, gunslick, WD40,3-in-1, mobile, castrol - whatever. just keep it lubed. I keep little 1.5 oz bottles of hoppes gun oil in my AR cases. I pull the bolt and rub in a few drops of oil when out shooting.

I've used motor oil, gear oil, CLP, ballistol, and high temperature wheel bearing grease with good results. It's all a wash IMO.

Another vote for Slip 2000 EWL. Runs will in a wide range of operating temps, stays well, doesn't attract crud and keeps the gun running well after a high round count.
l've heard police work is dangerous. Yes, that's why l carry a big gun. Couldn't it go off accidentally? l used to have that problem. What did you do about it?
l just think about baseball. -Leslie Nielsen
