From what I expereinced in the desert I would say yes. You will never find CLP in any of my gear. I keep it around for an emergency but I have gone exclusively to Militec. I still want to test it in the extreme cold, I have heard it may get thick. I am just one person but I would say it is all that, especially if applied correctly.

After I tried the Militec-1 lube, I quit using CLP except as a preservative.

CLP is a WONDERFUL preservative - although I've never seen rust when using Militec either.

Now as far as the grease goes, I bought a big 'ol tube of that too. It comes in greasegun tubes. Some weapons do better with grease than oil....... things like M14 bolt rollers, hammer / sear notches, and such.

There was some pretty negative stuff floating around about Militec's inability to prevent corrosion. Anyone have any personal experiences that corroborate any of that?

FP10 is my favorite for corrosion and lube when a medium weight liquid is needed.

I've yet to experience any corrosion problems while using Militec exclusively. I've taken pistols out and have had to shake the water out to load a mag. Still no corrosion...

Where are you hearing about corrosion problems? Which forum?

I'm interested in hearing other users (real world) experiences.

I tried the Militec oil and was not overly impressed.

My favorite is the Shooters Choice FP-10.

The Miltec/Miltec-1 Distributor that I have been working with to give Our Forum Members a great deal, says that there is NO CHEAPER PRICE anywhere....PM me and I'll send you a price list and you can see for your self. I would appreciate your letting me know also.

I suppose I'm just the opposite. I tend to take the results of controlled experiments with a little less salt than reports from the "real world", from people who may have hand's on experience with only a small number of the alternatives, in conditions that might not make a really thorough test. Many of the good reports were comming from Iraq, which is pretty dry, as climates go (desert... go figure). If your interested in it's performance, compared to other products, in controlled conditions, try the links below. I also read anecdotal reports, in multiple gun forum posts, from people who did their own testing and weren't impressed. After all of my research, I came to the conclusion that it's a poor rust preventer, compared to other available products, and a fair-to-middlin lubricant. Is it good enough? Maybe, but if there's better out there, for my purposes, then why settle for Militec. With regard to it's advantages, as a dry lubricant, in dusty environments, I simply have no such need. My firearms spend most of their time in my gun safe, in a region of the country that gets pretty humid during the summer, and the rest at gun ranges. My need for lubricity and corrosion protection easily outweigh any concern about dust and grit.

Now that's what I like!

Someone that throws out good intel!

FWIW, if you look at what I wrote before, I still like CLP as a preservative. Since I live in a desert, the dry lube properties of Militec have been good for me - and I have yet to see rust on anything I've used Militec with (in a desert, that's to be expected, right?).

I'm not trying to claim that the corrosion resistance of Militec is as good as CLP - I'm just saying that FOR ME there hasn't been any difference. If I lived in the hot and humid areas, or on a coastline where saltwater was a realistic concern.........

I bought a bottle of Slip2000. I'll give it a try one of these days. The whole reason I got the Slip2000 lube is 'cause I use Slip2000 Carbon Killer - that stuff is nothing short of MAGIC!

FWIW, and nothing more!

Question on Miltec (grease) and Miltec-1(liquid). First know that Our Forum now has special pricing with a Distributor that I set up for us. As a guide, he suggests that Miltec grease be used on the bolt parts and the trigger mechanism. Any other moving part(s), the liquid would be best. Down the barrel, in the gas tube and get it HOT! Then the product does what we want it to and that is to be a GREAT protector of our favorite weapons! We should have the price list posted on the site pretty soon. We haven't been able to figure out how to put the nice pretty order form, etc. onto Our Forum. Unless we can get some help, it will just be the plain old pricing and product list. Until then, PM me and I will send you a price list! I guarantee u will like what you see!

That seems like a good approach, Bravo. After studying those tests, again, I'm thinking about trying out Eezox. It's supposed to be a dry lube, and seems to be the best out there for corrosion protection. I have some Militec, so if I get the Eezox, and some time, I could try some subjective testing of my own for lubricity and affinity for dust.
