My gunsmith turned me on to FrogLube CLP, and I really like the stuff ! I had always used CLP or G96 to clean and lube my handguns. I know many gun owners use a variety of products made to specifically clean and or lubricate their guns, to motor oil.....etc. And it seems that new products come out all the time looking to claim your dollars. I was skeptical and thought that it was another waste of money for a gun product. I have just started using it on one of my 1911's, twice so far. I am pleased with the product in that the gun was easier to clean after shooting. The residue didn't seem to stick to the gun and was easier to clean / wipe off. The lube is on the thick side and has a minty smell. It is not petroleum based and safe on all parts, plastic grips, wood.....etc. Once you wipe it down it is more waxy feeling than oily. The action racking the slide for example was very, very smooth. They say that as the product is used more and more, it works its way into the pores of the metal and even gets better over time ?!! It also prevents oxidation on the metal surfaces as well. They say to apply it to your weapon after heating it up with a hair dryer or heat gun, so the product will penetrate better. I just used it at room temp, as the gun is shot it will warm up allowing the product to penetrate. I'm going to use it on my other guns as I think this product is actually really good. I know everyone has their favorite that they have used forever, and don't see a reason, or like to break from their traditional routine and product. But.......you might give it a try like I did. Just maybe you will find that it works as well, and in fact better for you as I did. Oh, and you can also use it on your knives as well.............!!!!!!!
