    CLP question.

    Is CLP ok to use on guns with wood furniture..like my lever guns... ? The can says "safe to use on NORMAL finishes" whatever that means. I have searched the subject some on the interweb, but can find no clear answer.

    I've never had an problems with it. I don't go rubbing it into the wood or anything (like Hickok45 does with Ballistol), but it has never hurt any of my grips or stocks.

    I use it on all my guns and have never had a problem, including my Henrys.

    It must be. It's made in Jacksonville, Florida.

    I've been ussing it for years, even before it became mainstream.
    But I am very careful of the wood/metal junctions on my rifles. That is the end grain of the wood, and it will suck up any liquid that contacts it. Ever seen what oil does to the wood on a 50, 60, 70 year old milsurp rifle?

    For my wood rifle stocks, I wipe them down with Pledge spray furniture wax once a year or so. Every 4 or 5 years I use Johnson's Paste Wax, especially in the forearm barrel channel.

    Unless you live in a sandy environment, a small amount of grease on the receiver rails where the bolt rides is a good thing. It doesn't take much, I apply it with a tooth pick. Since I'm a gear head, I always have a tub of wheel bearing grease around, and that is what I use.
    White lithium grease will work, and you can get that in tubes like toothpaste at O'Reilly, Auto Zone, Advance Auto Parts. One $6.99 tube should last your lifetime.

    For those with M1 Carbines, M1 Garands and Springfield M1A's, grease is ESSENTIAL on the bolt lug that engages the operating rod.

    I use USGI gun grease,and USGI wheel bearing grease in the form of, Grease, automotive and artillery.

    CLP was banned while I was in the guard for changing the firing tables for 81 MM and 4.2 inch mortars.

    Charge and tube angle are determined by the range from the target, they are very precise.

    Each lot of ammo has its own tables in the boxes it comes in.

    The 105 MM M102 Howitzers also had the problem,

    they are indirect fire weapons and rely on those tables for accurate fire.

    I gave away the two gallon cans of it I had when the bulletin came out, have not use it since.

    I also use USGI PL SPECIAL, PL MEDIUM, LAW and LSA.
