Gun oils: there are good ones and bad ones, but most get the job done pretty well. I’ve informally experimented with different brands throughout the years and have found my favorites, but never thought that any of them have really made a huge difference in the reliability or protection of my guns.
I was recently contacted by Rand Brands about a new gun product they have called the RAND CLP. After giving me the run down on the product, they asked if they could ship me some samples for review. I agreed.
There are essentially three functions of a CLP: cleaning, lubing and protecting against corrosion. In this review, I evaluated the product on the first two: cleaning and lubing. Read down to the end of the article to hear about my upcoming test on corrosion protection.
Rand makes several significant claims about the oil. Before getting into the details of my review, it might be a good idea to cover these points to help you determine if the RAND CLP is something you might be interested in.
