Is there any reason why I shouldn't use Break Free CLP on my marker? Does it have to be 'paintball gun oil'?

If I'm not mistaken, CLP will break down the o-rings. CLP is more of a solvent than a lubricant.

Is there anyone who has used this before? I love CLP and I would love to find out that I could use it. However I heard the same thing that it would break down your O rings.

Then again, i thought someone here once said that they used it for a long time with no problems.

And checking on break free's site, I see that they indicate that it is synthetic.

So does anyone have both definitive proof and experience to back it up?

Well as we all know, BF CLP is a firearm lube and some firearms have O-rings (like the bolt of an AR15).

Someone has to know for sure if this will hurt a PB gun or not...

It's NOT good for it. I'll say that much. Don't do it. Pneumatic o-rings and the type of stuff used in firearms are totally different.

When I got back into paintball, I had no clue about what lube to use, so I figured I'd use gun oil. I had a lot of fun changing out all the O-rings!!

Here is a previous discussion.

http://forum.specialopspaintball.com/index...%20CLP&st=0

the last guy in the post says that he has used Break Free for years with no problems at all.

And here is a link to Break-Free on the Web http://www.break-fre...ducts/index.asp

Looking at the site, I think that you may be safe, but its overkill. I can get a HUGE bottle of pneumatic tool oil at Lowes for like 2 bucks, while 2oz of paintball gun oil is like 3 bucks at the paintball store here in town. Hmm? And a four ounce bottle of break-free is like 5 bucks at the sporting store.

Did you listen to ANYTHING said so far? :P

Fox urine nothing! I would rent an elephant from the local circus and give it a massive dose of ex-lax. I would then proceed to "cork it" with an attached string so when the kids show up KABLOOEE!!!!!! See if their parents can sue an elephant for defacating! -ZZaque

Well it'll cost him in o-rings.

Yeah, don't use CLP on a paintball gun. Been there, done that, and it just melts the O-rings.


"...but it works so well on my M4..."

Goldenhand. . . come on. Dont talk to me like that. You wouldnt do it to my face. Dont do it here please.

Read the posts I posted. Read what I said earler here, and be civil please.

I asked an honest question. I put honest input. In short I partisipated.

So have people here used Break-Free and found it to eat O-rings? Swifty? You tried it? I mean eleven bravo you obvioulsy have access to it.

I'd rather not chance it, so I ordered some PB gun oil.

A little real-world experience, if I may..

I used it no later than yesterday, on both my buddy's 98 and my own Bravo One. I used the clear lubricant Break Free, not the teflon-based solvent, and immediately afterwards the older 98 started double feeding and had cycling problems, with two and three-round bursts and low power. The brand new Bravo One didn't react, probably cause all o-rings on it are new. Once we had put a couple hoppers (300-400 balls) through it, the 98 started to regain its original performance...

I will not be using BF on my markers again.
