Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I use RAND CLP?

RAND has broken the mold on traditional CLPs by creating RAND CLP: a non–toxic, nanoparticle infused all-in-one cleaner, lubricant and protectant. We have combined an eco-friendly, noncombustible biosynthetic base oil with the lubricating power of a proprietary nanoparticle compound to create unsurpassed, field-tested longevity per application. Backed by trusted professionals, RAND CLP will be there when you need it most.


How Does RAND CLP work?

RAND CLP uses a proprietary blend of nanoparticle compounds that bind to the metal surface of your firearm, creating a uniquely smooth and durable surface that protects against oxidation and carbon buildup, while at the same time providing ultra-effective lubrication that keeps the metal parts in your firearm moving smoothly and operating effectively.


How has RAND CLP been tested?

In the field: our product surpassed the competition in side-by-side controlled performance tests, with industry experts firing thousands of rounds without failure. RAND CLP has also outperformed when tested under extreme weather conditions both hot and cold.

In the lab: when compared to other products on the market, RAND CLP has the lowest coefficient of friction on record. RAND CLP is also formulated not to run or bleed into areas where it is not applied, giving you a more effective, targeted application.


Is RAND CLP eco-friendly? What is the flash point of RAND CLP?

Yes. RAND CLP is “green”, non-toxic, and biodegradable. Our patented, proprietary formulation combines naturally occurring nanoparticles with a noncombustible vegetable oil base. RAND CLP has an industry leading flash point of just over 600°F.


Will RAND CLP dry out?

No. RAND CLP is a patented formulation of recently discovered nanoparticles that engage with the surface of metal in ways never before observed. These particles form a durable bond with the metal of your firearm, creating a long lasting film that does not burn off or dry out like other typical lubricants. The combination of this bond and our perfect viscosity keeps RAND CLP where it is most needed with no running or bleeding into other areas.


How often should I clean my firearm?

You should pre-treat all your firearms with RAND CLP for rust protection prior to storing. This means running some RAND CLP through and on all the metal and friction points, leaving a thin layer. This will protect against oxidation and rust build up. You should also clean your firearm after each firing; however, because of the bond that RAND CLP forms with the metal of your firearm, your cleaning time will be cut in half.


How does RAND CLP stack up against the competition?

There is no other product in the world that offers the level of cleaning, lubrication and protection in one bottle like RAND CLP. We offer the lowest friction point on the market. RAND CLP is nontoxic, noncombustible and odorless.

Why should I use RAND Bore & Bolt?

We have created a non-toxic solvent with powerful cleaning properties that is virtually odorless. RAND Bore & Bolt is a Bio based solvent that is specially formulated to allow deeper penetration of carbon, powder, rust, and other fouling agents. It is also safe to use on all metals, polymers, and wood. You will spend less time cleaning, and more time shooting.


How Does RAND Bore & Bolt work?

Our solvent was created specifically to penetrate and remove carbon, lead, powder, rust, and other fouling agents by penetrating into the residue and removing it from the inside out. This makes removing built up carbon and powder almost effortless. When combined with RAND CLP, you will cut your cleaning time in half; especially after the second and third cleaning.


How has RAND Bore & Bolt been tested?

RAND Bore & Bolt has been vigorously tested in the field by Special Forces Sgt. Maj. Kyle Lamb (USA ret.), and is officially endorsed by his company Viking Tactics. Sgt. Maj. Lamb is meticulous in his research and testing before endorsing a new product, and his opinion is highly valued and sought after by people looking for high quality products.


Is RAND Bore & Bolt eco-friendly?

Yes. Bore & Bolt is a non-toxic, virtually odorless green solvent; it was formulated to be a better, safer, green alternative to toxic, petroleum based solvents. As a result, RAND Bore & Bolt can be applied in non-ventilated spaces with no adverse effects on the user…no more solvent headaches or oily residue on your hands.


How often should I clean my firearm?

You should pre-treat all your firearms with RAND CLP for rust protection when in storage. After every firing, your weapon should be cleaned with a combination of RAND CLP and RAND Bore & Bolt to eliminate all carbon and powder fouling, and to prevent rust. Continuous use of RAND CLP together with RAND Bore & Bolt will keep your firearm at peak performance, extend the life of your weapon, and significantly cut down on your cleaning time.


How does RAND Bore & Bolt stack up against the competition?

RAND Bore & Bolt is the future of weapons maintenance. Combined with RAND CLP, our products cut cleaning time while extending the life of your weapon in a non- toxic, non-combustible, odorless, eco-friendly package that is made in America.

Why Should I Use Rand H.A.W.G. Grease?

We have created a non-toxic, nanoparticle infused heavy weapons grease that is far superior to anything on the market. RAND H.A.W.G. uses the power of nanotechnology to protect your firearms from rust, corrosion, oxidation, and dirt while greatly reducing friction and wear. With our proprietary blend of nanoparticles and biosynthetic components, H.A.W.G. will last long after you have run out of ammo.


What Does H.A.W.G. Stand For?

H.A.W.G. stands for Heavy Applications Weapons Grease. H.A.W.G. was designed specifically to stand up to the extreme stresses and loads generated by heavy machine guns. Because of this durability, H.A.W.G. works extremely well on all weapons systems, lubricating and protecting your firearms for hunting, target shooting, or storage.


How Does RAND H.A.W.G. Work?

The nanoparticles infused into H.A.W.G. bind to and penetrate the small imperfections in the surface metal of your firearm, which creates a smoother, slicker surface. Combined with our newly formulated corrosion inhibitor, H.A.W.G. will lubricate and protect your firearm in any environment, and will outlast other, more traditional greases.


How Has Rand H.A.W.G. Been Tested?

In the lab: H.A.W.G. has been subjected to rigorous corrosion testing, passing the 100 hour salt spray test used by the U.S. Military. H.A.W.G. also has an extremely low coefficient of friction, and is rated for use in all temperatures from -30°F to 619°F. Your firearm will run smoother in most environments. In The Field: We have tested H.A.W.G. extensively, with corrosive ammo, high round counts and inside suppressors. It has performed flawlessly in both normal and extreme environments. The reduction in friction and heat associated with using H.A.W.G. minimizes the wear and maintenance time on your guns. H.A.W.G. works hard so you don’t have to.


Is Rand H.A.W.G. Eco-Friendly? What Is The Flashpoint?

Yes. H.A.W.G. is non-toxic and biodegradable. Our patented formula of naturally occurring nanoparticles combined with a biosynthetic grease base created this high performance, eco-friendly product. H.A.W.G. is also non-combustible and has a flashpoint of 619°F, which is one of the highest flashpoints of any product on the market.


Will Rand H.A.W.G. dry up or burn off?

No. Like RAND CLP, H.A.W.G.’s patented formulation of recently discovered nanoparticles bond to the surface metal of your firearm. The combination of this durable bond and high flashpoint means H.A.W.G. will not evaporate while you are shooting.


How Should I Use Rand H.A.W.G.?

After cleaning your firearm with RAND Bore & Bolt and RAND CLP, you should apply H.A.W.G. to your bolt, slide, recoil spring, and anywhere else you have metal on metal contact and moving parts. Manufactured to exacting standards, H.A.W.G. will not burn off, and will provide superior lubrication for the most extreme loads you can place on your firearm. H.A.W.G. is also an exceptional corrosion inhibitor. Using H.A.W.G. on your firearm before long-term storage is highly recommended.


How Does Rand H.A.W.G. Stack Up Against The Competition?

Simply put, H.A.W.G. has no competition. H.A.W.G. was specifically designed to lubricate and protect heavy weapons, and there is no other product on the market that offers the level of protection and lubrication H.A.W.G. provides, while remaining non-toxic, non-combustible, and virtually odorless.
