Ogre's Open Source CLP

"Horde CLP version 1.1"

Very simple with only 3 components. It's easier to make than Ed's Red and you don't have to mix in any melted wax to make it lube and protect better either.

2 parts CASTROL GTX START UP. (not regular GTX!)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. If you can't find GTX Start-Up, Mobil 1 will work, but the molocules are not polarized so you don't get that benifit.

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 that's 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 stocks… 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 don't need much and only mix up as much as you are going to use… "1 part" 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 don't 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.
What do you guys think?

Yup. Long story as to how and why, but yeah.
I call it "Open Source" because if anyone had a way to improve it that is keeping in spirit of the project, then I'll edit the source to include the improvement.
Easy and Cheap are the 2 key factors. I've tested this stuff on my own guns and it works great.

Sounds good to me! I'll keep you posted if I get around to trying it. Much better than having big ole jugs of Ed's Red lying around in hazmat containers.

The idea is that this stuff is made of stuff you already have...
or should have...
In your garage.

B-12 Chemtool is fantastic stuff... and the heart of this stuff. It combines all the solvents you could ever want and the stuff is just wicked on your engine. I use it in my Brono and in my Jeeps. The stuff is magic. Takes water out of a gas tank and laquer build up out of a carburator. Gunk in an injector nozzle stands no chance. Gunk in your barrel? Uh uh. No chance.
You can buy this stuff by the gallon for cheap. Use it in your chainsaws, generators, trucks, boats. I have, and it's fantastic. Seriously.
The other stuff... If you can't get GTX Start Up, you can use Mobil one and you should already have it.

Those who have tried it, have all reported great success, especially as a cleaner. The other day I got an email regarding a stainless gun that has never looked so clean thanks to this formula.

I gotta run... I left some parafin wax on the stove. LOL. Wax... that's funny.
