      There is a link to a very detailed and comprehensive review of froglube and others. Seems like frog lube is one of the best.

      Fact of the matter for me, it's difficult to find frog lube locally. So I keep using CLP and Rem oil spray.
      For thorough bore cleaning, I use Hoppe's bore cleaner, but very, very seldom.

            I have given Frog Lube some thought. I like the idea of coating metal parts so they resist fouling. Have not tried it yet. I do coat parts with BreakFree CLP and it seems to do fine. I used to eat frog legs when I lived on a farm, not sure I want to make a lube out of frogs. But who knows? I may eventually try it.

              We used on all of our weapons, but it really shines on the AR, because it cleans up so easily.

                Just purchased a tube. FrogLube recommends all previous petroleum lubes be stripped off. I emailed Simple Green to get an opinion about using it to clean guns. They responded in the positive, so I used the recommended dilution on the bottle, placed it in a Harbor Freight sonic cleaner heated the solution and ran the parts through an eight minute cycle.

                After the cleaning I rinsed the parts and placed them in a small toaster oven I purchased for a few dollars from a local Goodwill store. I did this to help dry the parts and also FrogLube recommends applying the paste while the metal is heated.

                As recommended I allowed the parts to rest for several hours before removing the excess. I have not made it to the range since then but I will report back on when I do.

                  I've been using it for quite a while now and pretty much exclusively since I ran out of the good Finish Line teflon chain lubricant. It works really well and makes clean-up a breeze. If you find your slide, bolt etc. is sticky or sluggish after a long time of storage, you have applied too much. Just warm it up and wipe off the excess from the parts.

                    Great stuff, but getting a little expensive around here. Can get more "miles" by using the paste. Just warm the metal or paste with a hair dryer.

                      A local gun store had a 25% off, or so they said,. I purchased 8 oz of the paste for $17.69 including sales tax. The sales person I spoke with said his guard unit now use FrogLube exclusively. I noticed it does not take much to treat my hand gun, 8 oz may be a life time supply! I am a bit older than the average shooter. Again I will report back after a trip to range. Thanks for the comments.

                          I've had a small jar of the paste some quite some time now. Only about 1/3 of it has been used. It'll keep and last you a long time. More is not better though. Keep that in mind. You'll use the most when initially treating your weapons. After that, a light application is fine.Just follow their directions.

                            I started using Frog Lube in May after the recommendation of a friend. I do like it for my rifles and cleaning but I don't think it's as good a rust inhibitor as Gibbs (which I've used for years). I've gone back to Gibbs for my carry pieces because of some surface rust issues on my BP9CC. I use the frog lube for cleaning and finish off the important metal parts with Gibbs.

                            I carry all the time... even when I'm doing manual labor. The pistol gets cleaned once a month. In all the years of using Gibbs, I've never had an issue with any surface rust but I had two spots show up on my primary carry with Frog Lube. I'm not saying it's a bad product. It just doesn't perform as well for me and my maintenance cycle/carry environment for my EDC.

                            The bare metal dudes use Gibbs and I now see why!

                              I tried it but it's too confusing when to heat, when to season, blah blah blah. I'll stick with old school methods.
