    Trying Froglube

    My son gave me a container of Froglube. Now I'm a firm believer that guns don't care what you use as long as you take care of them, and that marketing hype is for suckers. But since it was free, I said what the heck.

    I'm starting out with my AA .22 conversion for my Glock 30. It's a fine conversion kit, one I highly reccommend, but it will act up at about 100 rounds or so of dirty .22 ammo. Previously I've used Breakfree CLP (that came with it), Gunzilla, Hoppes, Auto grease, and 3-in-1 oil--all with about the same results. When the kit gets dirty enough, it wants to act up.

    So to give Froglube a fair chance, I thoughly cleaned off all previous products and applied the green stuff and wiped it down, leaving only the slightest visiable trace on the rail grooves. Hopefully I can get out next week to give it a test run. I'm not real sure about its "minty fresh" aroma, but who knows?

    I have no doubt that you have used a longer list of products than I. After you've compared "Froglube" to the other products; I'll tend to believe your review.Can't trash it too much, ....developed by a former SEAL.... and it was a gimme gift.

    Interesting... I'll be interested to hear your report. I've heard plenty of folks swear by it, but I'm in your camp on gun lubes; I just keep 'em clean and use whatever, and I've never had any issues with any of my firearms. As expensive as it is, it'd have to do a heck of a job for me consider spending that much on a gun lube. I'm sure your average SEAL probably has much higher set of demands for a lube, so I'm sure it does its job well; I'm just not sure if it's a job I need done!

    I've seen a lengthy thread on another site with many favorable comments by evil black rifle users.

    I bought Frog lube for my AR (scary black rifle.) It worked great there, so I followed with use on a couple of pistols & .22 rifles. The cleaning time was shortened and performed well. If you shoot Ruger 10/22's you know those guns can get grimy. They still do with the FL, but clean up is easier.

    It's great stuff and I use it on all guns now.

    I have and still use it. It acts as a cleaner and lube. Best results is when you heat up the metal first.

    But the marketing hype allows me to obsess over something besides holsters and ammo.

    So I ran 100 rounds of .22 thru my G30 today with only one stovepipe in an otherwise perfect run. I expected that, as conversions aren't known for being 100% reliable. Ran single shots, double taps, 2 COM-1 to head, and a couple of fast-as-I-can 10 shot dumps.

    No problems with the Froglube, and cleanup was a cinch. It's too early to declare it the new "Wonder Lube," It has no negatives that I've noticed so far. Hopefully I can get back out and run my .45 reloads through it and see how it does with that grime.

    Until then...

    well.....like holsters and ammo, I say: "You can never have enough different lubes, cleaners, and protect-ants for our precious safe queens"!

    So I guess I'll hop to it and give froggy a try soon too.

    Minty Fresh Scent you say

    WOW sounds like they finally came-out with a firearms breath freshener. Maybe it wasn't so much the looks but the smell of AR's breath that the anti's don't like

    I pretty much use it exclusively.

    For 10$ per tub, I dont get the cost complaints.

    I shoot pretty frequently, and multiple firearms per range trip. I havent even gone through 1/4 of the tub in 4 months. The stuff just seems to work.

    If it doesn't stink to high heaven (like old formula Hoppe's #9 or Ballistol) and it hasn't been shown to possibly cause cancer in California lab rats, then it can't be ideal for cleaning & lubing my firearms. Guns are inherently dangerous, so IMHO, the chemicals to keep them clean & running should be toxic, against the law to mail & impossible to get past the TSA. If it smells good & you can lick it off your fingers...I ain't using it!

    Enviro safe and non-toxic. Doesn't smell up the work area and you don't have to worry about getting the smell off skin and clothes. It coats well and has worked well for me.
