SLIP 2000 Lubricants: The Unknown CLP

Today, we have high expectations for our gun care products. Whether they are designated lubricants, cleaners, or corrosion preventatives, we expect them to do as advertised. The market in recent years has brought a long line of products that can answer that call. One type of gun care product that has seen increasing interest and use is CLP. CLP stands for cleaner, lubricant, preservative, and essentially it is supposed to serve as an all-in-one product as the name would imply. The problem with CLP is that it does not always hold up and perform as well as people would hope. Some people say that a CLP being an all in one will end up being mediocre at everything when compared to products that are specifically designed to perform as a cleaner or a lubricant. I think you will find that SLIP 2000 has changed that with their own line-up of CLPs. SLIP 2000 is a CLP not many people know about, but it is slowly getting traction on the market for good reason.

I did a stress test with SLIP 2000 CLPs in which I shot thousands of rounds without cleaning, and only lubricating the platform when necessary, which was not often. After 8000 rounds, I noticed that the fouling had not progressed any further. This gave me an excuse to stop the testing, and go to the next stage of seeing how well the CLP prevented fouling, and to test how well it can clean. The results were eye opening. i think SLIP 2000 has a recipe that can totally change the way we see CLPs.
