When the United States Military issued PD-48, a purchase description of properties for a single, multi-purpose product to maintain their weaponry, it became known as the "impossible specification" because of its severe requirements. The first product to meet the challenge - Break-Free CLP. Break-Free's flagship product, CLP is a unique formulation of synthetic oils and individual proprietary ingredients which synergize in combination to do three important tasks simultaneously: Effectively Clean, Lubricate and Protect metal. Break-Free CLP is now recognized around the world as the standard by which maximum metal performance and protection is ensured.

Check out the formal and informal tests on CLP and other products - they are all over the internet. Look at actual tests, not just personal anecdotes like these reviews. You'll find plenty of comments good and bad, but actual testing invariably rates CLP among the top performers.
Against general-purpose gun cleaners and solvents, it rates good to great. Against general-purpose gun lubes, it's great to excellent. There are a few products out there that can perform one of its functions better, but they typically cost a LOT more.
I use it on all my guns - revolvers, pistols, rifles, shotguns. It comes up a little short on cleaning filthy shotgun barrels. It works, and works well, but the amount of carbon and plastic residue from the wadding requires an awful lot of CLP. I get better results from a good solvent or a shotgun-specific product. I follow up the solvents with a few dry patches, a CLP-dampened patch, and a couple more dry patches.
I prefer the aerosol cans as they are less prone to leakage and evaporation, and the product foams a bit as it sprays out, getting into rifling and other nooks and crannies better. The downside is that aerosol cans are harder to control the amount sprayed, and for most things, other than barrels, you only need a couple drops at a time.
Note that Break-Free makes a similar product called - "LP". LP lacks the solvents in CLP, and is a bit thicker. Corrosion tests indicate that CLP is superior to LP as a protectant. (Yes, the "Cleaner, Lubricant, Preservative" is a better protectant than the "Lubricant, Preservative". Counter intuitive, but this is what the tests bear out) I for one will stick with CLP.
I grew up as a pistol and shotgun guy and just recently started getting into rifle competition and plinking. Pistols and shotguns are simple to breakdown and clean, but some rifles are a little more complex. For example, the recessed areas of the AR configuration are a challenge to clean, and the small pieces of its bolt carrier group need to be cleaned regularly too. What is nice about Break-Free's aerosol product's delivery it how easy it makes it getting the cleaner to where it is needed. Once the cleaner gets to where it is needed, I can use long handled brushes to scrub and clean... but it was tougher getting cleaner into those area before using this aerosol delivery.
Cleaning the BCG is simple with this product; break down the bolt carrier, put the parts in a bowl, douse them with this CLP's spray, and let them sit. After just a few minutes the grime has mostly melted away and all I need to do is give them a good scrub with light brushes and then wipe them down with a cloth.
Will still test and try other products, but this has been our mainstay for the past two years. It is hard to get around here as it sells out of stores about as fast as it hits the shelf... definitely recommended. One can lasts me about eight cleaning sessions of three to four firearms at a time.
Con: The "P" stands for preservative, which is that it stays lubricated. The problem is that it does not wipe off easily (or at all) meaning any use of this on the outside of your guns will leave your gun greasy If you put it away before this dries (in a month or two), your case/bag will also be greasy. Recommend wearing gloves when using, as your hands will require dish soap to remove it.
