Gunzilla - CLP not buying their claims about being the best. Login/Join

Picked up some Gunzilla CLP and wiped down a few of my long guns and pistols. I typically use breakfree, but this stuff was suppose to be better. The claims were Superior Rust Protection and a superior Lube and cleaner. I noticed that it seems to dry up on the firearms and I noticed there are rust spots on my 11/87 receiver. Never noticed rust there before, but I have it now. Also noticed the lube seems to dry unlike the Breakfree CLP I typically use. I have pissed away $28 on dumber stuff, but I am not impressed with this Gunzilla stuff. Anyone else here try it?

CLP has never done me wrong. I won’t be taking chances with something else.

28 bucks? Ouch! And Breakfree makes a CLP long term preservative oil.
I have not tried it.

Breakfree Collector. It's not a CLP (Clean/Lube/Protect)... Just a P. You have to C and L with other products.

I use it on my milsurp collection, which spends most of its time in safes.

It's heavier than most oils and works well for long-term storage, but unlike thick preservative grease, you don't have to remove it before hitting the range.

However, it's not just for storage. Some people use Collector on the exterior of their more rust-prone guns that see more frequent use, like carry guns with blued finishes or duck-hunting shotguns, since it provides better rust protection than standard gun oils.

If you want cheap long term protection , get a small jar of Vaseline . Works great and cleans off very easily .

I picked some up when I couldn't find FP-10 locally anymore (great stuff, FP-10). Other than the odor, Gunzilla seems to fit the bill..

Sorry to hear that. Breakfree CLP is excellent in rust and corrosion and that is what I use it for but for even better protection Eezox is terrific if applied via directions and allowed to dry. Yeah it is best to be suspicious about claims and do some further investigations.

Been using Breakfree CLP for 30 years. Buy it by the gallon. None of my guns have rusted - even on the Gulf Coast. Never could get on board with "the next best thing".

I used Eezox for a while, until I could no longer convince myself that I didn't mind the smell. It does seem to be the best for metal protection. That's when I went to second best, Gunzilla.

I've switched to weapon shield, it's really fantastic.




Chances are high; you won't like what I've got to say.

for longer term storage, and for fluff and buff on my mags and springs, I like Prevox from the makers of Kroil.

Stuff reminds me of carnuba wax, and seems to help keep my mags free of lint and dirt as well as preventing any rust.

Supposed to be good for 6 months or more in humid conditions, and they also have a 1 year weatherproof coating, but it requires mineral spirits to remove.

Rust Preventative and Lubricant
Rustproofing lubricant. Waxlike coating provides long-lasting rustproofing in humid conditions PLUS lubrication. Clear coating is harmless to metals, and non-flammable. Protects metal surfaces for 6 months or more. Prevox is easily removed with standard solvents.

In my line of work it's not uncommon to need to protect exposes metals against corrosion for the purposes of long term storage.

Here's what I use for that:



And once upon a time somebody conducted a series of test which included all of the well known products marketed to gun collectors, and just so happened to include this product as well. It's worth taking a look at his results.

Note that the WD product is only for corrosion protection and is not designed to have any cleaning or lubrication abilities.

I bought a small bottle of the Gunzilla and took it to my very last weapons qualification/range weekends with my reserve unit.

I thought it was okay nothing special. A few of the other soldiers in my group really liked it, and they were all 11B/19D guys who left AD and switched to reserves.

I put it on my M4, M9 and one of the 240's. I liked it better than army issued CLP because it was not as thick.

I seem to believe that it clean up pretty quick. I think that was what made me like it.

A few years ago on the local gun forum in VA, I bought a P226 off an individual out of the Norfolk area. When I inspected it I observed that it had this red lube/oil on the rails and when I shot it ran like a top. I never could figure out what the name was until I just read redlickranch post.

I really would like to get a bottle of it and try it on my P229 and P239.

Both the red bottles came from the Knob Creek Machine Gun shoot.

One bottle is marked GROILE it sticks to guns really well.

They sell Gun Blue, Cleaners and Oil. I didn't see him at the last shoot so hopefully they are still in business. They made the best cold blue I have ever used for touch ups.

I've always liked and rely on Corrosion-X.
I never have any rust issues.
