anyone heard of Mpro7? its' suppose to be similar to break free CLP that's used by the aviation dept. there are cleaners, lubes, protectants. I didn't know if it's better than hopps, sweets..etc.

I recently started using the MPro7 cleaner. I think it is great. It does a good job cleaning, and it doesn't smell. The lack of odor is the single biggest selling point for this product, in my opinion.

I have used many different cleaners over the years, and every single one has a strong odor.

Most of these odors stay on the guns after the cleaning is done, and when you where the gun concealed YOU absorb the smell.

Many of the smells make me sick when I am wearing the freshly cleaned gun concealed. I think that is because so many are petroleum based and the fumes are not exactly healthy.

where did you buy the cleaner from? I found a site eguns.com that appears to have a good price.

I've been using the MPro-7 (http://www.mpro7.com) line for years, and as far as I'm concerned, it's the greatest thing since sliced bread.

If you run a patch moistened with MPro-7 through the barrel of a new, unfired gun, and allow it to sit for about ten minutes, the MPro-7 helps prevent carbon, copper and lead from adhering to the barrel, making subsequent cleanings a breeze. I can do a field expedient cleaning of my glock with just the Mpro-7, a boresnake, and a brush, and get excellent results.

I've also used the MPro-7 cleaner in an ultrasonic cleaner. I use an immersion heater to heat the MPro-7 to about 160 degrees fahrenheit, and then immerse the entire gun, minus stocks, into the solution for about 10 minutes. I had a model 640-2 stainless revolver that had carbon fouling on the front of the cylinder face that no amount of hoppes, breakfree and scrubbing would remove. After 10 minutes in the ultrasonic, the carbon wiped off with a soft cotton towel.

The fact that there's no smell means that I can clean my guns indoors again as well.

The lube is also top notch.

I bought mine at the best gun store in Massachusetts, Four Seasons in Woburn.

I don't remember how much it cost, because I was buying a SW 1911 and some other stuff at the time.

FWIW, I am trying to get my department to buy some for us to use at the station.

To clarify what was said at the beginning of this board, MPro7 can not be directly compared to CLP. It is not a CLP. MPro7's flagship product is a cleaner, as most of you know. They also have an oil (LP).

I use TW-25B lube from Mil-Comm. It works well with the MPro7 cleaner. www.mil-comm.com

Mpro 7 is a good, albeit overly expensive, cleaner. It is some type of soap.

The lube is horrible in my experience.

MPro-7 (formerly MP-7) is an outstanding product. What is quite noticable about the product is it's lack of odor and the outstanding job it does cleaning. I've cleaned guns with BreakFree, then used MPro-7, and you still can still see more carbon residue on the patches. Amazing stuff.

I've used it for years in many different forms. They do make a CLP product, a cleaner-only product, and a lubricant product. But they are best known for their cleaner.

I get mine through Brownells, or a local gun store.

I have been using MPro 7 for about two years. It works great and doesn't stain new carpets either. Don't ask. I learned the hard way. It is not a lube though, and the packaging clearly states that a lube must be applied after cleaning.
