    Froglube

    Can anyone tell me if this stuff works? Is it worth the price?

    I've been using Hornady One Shot for a couple years and it's really good.

    Really need something for my semi auto goose gun for when the weather and conditions would send most deer hunters packing home. However I'd use it on my Glocks.

    The One Shot works very well in the cold and doesn't attract dust and dirt.

    I've heard great things about it but the only way we could get in in Montana was online. However a local store started stocking it.

    I use it to good effect, but I'm in Georgia so I can't speak to its performance extreme conditons.

    Don't worry somebody on this forum will step up with the specific info your looking for.

    I've found that it's great on my polymer framed guns, and it comes out of clothing easier than oil based lubes. Tried it on my 1911s and didn't like it - went back to Hoppes.

    As for whether it's better than Hoppes, CLR, or the Remington products....I can't say that it is.

    The best thing about it is the lack of chemical smell. But I've read on here that some like Hoppes so much they use it as aftershave.

    I love it... works great but the real reason I use it is it smells nice so my wife doesn't turn her nose up if I clean my guns at the kitchen table.

    I really like it. It does a good job and smells a lot better than many other gun cleaning products.

    I like it. It stays where you apply it (doesn't evaporate.) It has a nice smell, too!

    Don't know if this will be helpful or not since you asked about extreme cold weather and "us old folks" try to stay indoors in extreme weather, but here goes:

    We just got our first shipment (ordered it on line) and Gramps borrowed my hair dryer to heat and thoroughly clean one of his Glocks. He said it was amazing how easy it was to do the whole cleaning job and the gun shot REALLY well afterward. Others have said they noticed a huge difference in how smoothly their gun worked after about the 3rd thorough cleaning with the Frog Lube.

    One of the main reasons I wanted Gramps to switch from the Hoppe's is that Fog Lube is totally non toxic vs. "don't even think about it" for the toxicity of Hoppe's. OK - so we are both pretty old and still alive, but I try to keep toxins out of our lives as much as possible so we can be healthy until we drop.
    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!

    Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.

    I use synthetic Mobil 1 on all my guns and it works great in all temperature extremes. I have heard that Frog Lube does not do well in sub-zero temps.

    My Froglube flyer that came in the kit I bought says "A bio-based, non-petroleum, non-flammable and non-toxic weapons care system made of Food Grade ingredients." However it does not have any temperature warnings on the container or bottle. Here are some reviews in "Cold Weather" scenarios from Froglube users.

    As far as for damp conditions outdoors for extended periods of time FrogLube tested much better than all of the other rust preventative lubricants including eezox and breakfree clp.

    I'd gladly pay 10 times the price for frog lube. I can't say how well it works in the very cold because I'm a fair weather shooter. I pay extra for the indoor range if it's even slightly chilly outside.

    I really like frog lube. I use both the paste and the liquid.

    I use it, but I've never had to endure "battlefield" conditions, but from the safe to the gun box to the range and back again it doesn't attract any excess debris, my guns cycle smoother, there easier to clean, so I guess it does as advertised

    There have been reports of users having had mold/fungus/some type of growth start inside of their guns treated with Frog Lube. I recall Frog Lube was testing the formula, but never heard a final outcome.

    I decided synthetic motor oil and white lithium grease was fine for my guns.
