HTC/Rogue Gunfighter Low Vis Demo Day – FIREClean

IMG_1676

At the recent HTC/Rogue Gunfighter Low Vis Demo Day we took a look at FIREClean, an odorless, biodegradable gun oil that destroys carbon contamination and helps prevent future fouling. It cleans and lubricates, and firearms treated with FIREClean “blows out” fouling instead of trapping it. FIREClean is also extremely heat resistance, especially when compared to conventional or synthetic oils. Made in the USA.

    Does it work as advertised?

      It’s funny, the are a few topics that are guaranteed to bring the loons out if the woodwork and for some reason weapon lube is one of them.

      I have lots of guys telling me that they love this stuff. Other guys will fall on their sword, showing their asses all the way to the hilt as they try to bring the product down.

      So, what the heck, let’s just open this up so that we can see who has actually used it. I bet you we’ll also see who needs to get back on their meds.

        I heard X brand of gun lube also cures cancer, rather causes it like XX brand of lube.

      • Engineer says:

        Ah weapons lubricant, the only topic more contentious than religion, football (or soccer) or politics. Be prepared to receive an influx of “experts” with their astm tests and counter-experts with their evidence the tests were not conducted correctly.

        I’ve used it and works as advertised and more. Does not gum up and turn into a “grease-like” texture as another non-petrol based, popular (celebrity endorsed) product does. Carbon does come off a lot easier than anything else I’ve used and that’s a lot of so called “best” CLP out there.

        What they don’t advertise is how smooth metal parts glide amongst each other. I personally use KG Products, degrease then finish with FireClean. I have found my carbon fighter, cleaner and lube. Best of all, non-toxic and no fumes like some.

    I have two bottles. It works almost like regular clp. A little slicker. Not as slick as froglube, but also not as gummy in the cold. Coats really well and spreads out. It’s been a good lubricant. Probably not worth the price. I would compare it to slip2000.

    • JaegerSchnitzel says:

      sounds like you’re using it wrong. CLP doesn’t allow me to wipe off a suppressed SBR with a dry rag.

  3. Sean L says:

    Froglube. I don’t really use it, but they make it, and some people use it, and I respect that.

  4. PLiner says:

    As Eric pointed out, this area always seems to draw out the crazy in people trying to defend or oppose what they think is best. All I can say, is I have used pretty much all of the well known products out there at some point in time. Up until FireClean came out, the King of the hill IMO was FrogLube. However, since then, I have to in all honesty say that FireClean is the current king of the hill for doing several things, not just one. Yes, it cleans and it lubricates and it protects but just saying that is an understatement. Being able to run full auto, suppressed and not clean a weapon for thousands of rounds without a malfunction is quiet common when using FireClean. And when it comes to cleaning you can wipe almost all the carbon off with a rag/paper towel and be done in minutes instead of hours of cleaning.

    I know there is a lot of snake oil out there but I can assure you that FireClean is not one of them. Once you use it, you won’t use anything else.

  5. Andrew says:

    There is only one: Ballistol. 😉

  6. JaegerSchnitzel says:

    It sounded like snake oil until I started hearing more and more guys say it really worked. they publish before/after pictures. I think Slip 2000’s only pictures appeared in a SWAT magazine article by Pat Rogers.

    Look at some of the guys using and recommending FIREClean- Pat McNamara, Mike Pannone etc…..and Geissele and KAC were passing out sample packets at Modern Day Marine. That’s pretty high praise.

  7. I used FIREClean for the first time a couple of months ago when we decided to sponsor a “machine gun” stage at a local combat shooting match. As a certified HK armorer, I have personally tried dozens of cleaner/lubricants in what some say is one of the most difficult submachine guns to clean, a suppressed MP5. after we prepped the subgun with FIREClean, we shot approximately 3000 suppressed rounds during the match, including through a short period of rain. The gun then sat for 3 days in a range bag. I was able to get the bolt-group 95% clean with nothing more than a few mintues with a dry cloth. The recommended HK chamber cleaning brush was nearly twice as affective than usual. I then suggested FIREClean to several well-reputed members of the HKPro Forum and their experience was similiar. It works like they say it does.

    Is it true that the stuff is pretty much just synthetic motor oil? It seems to work about as well as synthetic Mobil one. I used fireclean on a M107 during a three day live fire, and didn’t really think it was all that. It wasn’t terrible either, just not worth the price.

  9. RAL says:

    I am a sucker for marketing so of course I had to have FIREclean.

    I’m now a solid supporter it dies what they say it dies for me anyway.
