Ogreís Open Source CLP

"Horde CLP version 1.1"


Very simple with only 3 components.  Itís easier to make than Edís Red and you donít have to mix in any melted wax to make it lube and protect better either.

2 parts CASTROL GTX START UP.  This oil has polarized molecules that allow the oil to stick to the metal better.  This gives better lubrication and protection. 3 bucks at Checkers locally.

1 part B-12 Chemtool.  You can buy this and the oil at your local NAPA or CHECKERS or AUTOZONE parts store.  The B-12 can be had in small cans and thatís all you need.  The B-12 contains high energy solvents that clean your gun very well and very fast. Carbon fouling has no chance.  It did great on the lead fouling in my old Remington .22 too.  In the mixture it wont melt your plastic parts or damage the finish on your stocksÖ at least not that I have found in my testing. If you don't use this for your car or truck, you are missing out... this stuff is awesome for cleaning your carburetor and injectors or any greasy parts.

1 part Kerosene.  This will thin the oil, and stabilize the B-12 to allow for a good mixture.  You can find this at ACE hardware or other such store for just a couple bucks.  You probably have some for your Coleman Lanterns or portable heaters or for use in cleaning autoparts and stuff.   

You donít need much and only mix up as much as you are going to useÖ ď1 partĒ can be a table spoon full and that will do you just fine.  This is stuff you might have in your garage already.  B-12 is great stuff and I use it on my truck and Jeeps all the time. Kerosene you might already have around too.  If you donít have the GTX Start Up, you can use Mobil 1 if you like.  I like the 5W.  Anyways, if you already have this stuff in your garage, mixing some up for your guns wont cost you a thing.  I've tested this in my guns and it works great.  My Beretta Cougar and Detonics love it. The Mak loves it.  The Marlin likes it when I use a thin coat on the bolt...   Just mix a little as you need it and you will never have to spend money on gun care products ever again.  

Now, this is Open Source... means I give you the recipe for free, and you can use it as you like as long as you give credit to You can also change and alter the formula as you like... And if you find a mix that works better - send it in so it can be posted and the main formula can be updated.

The 4 Rules of Firearms Safety:

1.  Handle all firearms as if they were loaded.

2.  Never point the gun at anything you're not willing to destroy.

3.  Keep your finger off the trigger and out of the trigger guard until you have made the decision to fire the weapon.

4.  Know your target, and know what is beyond the target.
