    BreakFree Gun cleaner as chain cleaner?

    Can you use gun cleaner, lubricant, protectant all in one your bike chain? Does anybody have any experience using this with a wax or stand alone?

    Thanks!

    I too thought about using gun cleaner, but want to find out from the more advance riders. It is safe on metal and does an amazing job cleaning lead off of a gun, one would think it could clean a bike. Anyone using it?

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that as a solvent, I'm sure it would work just fine. However, the type of lubrication it's going to provide probably won't be as great on a bike chain that's going to be exposed to dirt, dust, pollen, mud, water, etc. The parts of a gun that you use that stuff on aren't exposed to these things unless you're a really sloppy gun-owner. Then I feel bad for your guns. Besides, I would think that gun cleaner, solvent, lubricant is probably more expensive ounce-for-ounce than some simple green or mineral spirits and Tri-flow.

    Overall, I doubt it would hurt the chain much, but it probably wouldn't work as well as you're hoping. I sure wouldn't bust out my Hoppe's on my bike chain. If you decide to try it, though, let us know how it worked.

    I use it on my Glock, AR'S , shotguns and shoot 3 gun and other coms regularly. Break free is awesome **** and can work in a lot of cases. I also used it when over seas on my weapons.

    I have used it a few times on my chain when my usual chain lube wasn't nearby, it works fine, but I don't think I would use it in a dusty environment. I use it for it's intended purpose as well.
