Froglube on Glocks or.......

I have been experimanting as of late with two new'ish products on the market.
The first is Froglube and the other is SEAL 1
I have used the Froglube on both Glock and Sig pistols.
Thusfar, it works as advertised.
I am going to try SEAL 1 next.
Besides doing all that it claims it does, the Froglube smelling like Wintergreen, allows me to clean weapons inside the house, where as the traditional petrolium aromatics relegated me to the garage.
Anyone else have a take on theses products?

Mobil-1 15w50 and a needle squeeze bottle will work wonders.

FrogLube is awesome. I got turned on to it while doing my Concealed Carry class. Can't say enough about it.

Five drops of anything slick works on Glock. One drop on each 'rail' and the fifth one on your finger to rub down the slide with. You are then good to go for a couple of thousand rounds. After the 2d lube job, you need to change the spring and clean the gun whether it appears to need it or not.

FrogLube is, indeed, a pleasure to work with. It puts a long lasting sheen on the outside of my Glock Model 19, and seems to be equally useful in restoring and protecting both metal and plastic. It's genuinely waterproof, too!

If you get FrogLube I suggest you avoid the liquid and buy the paste. (It doesn't get sticky after a couple of months' storage in the same way that the liquid does; but, no matter because a few seconds' blast with a hot air dryer straightens things right out and quickly gets rid of the tacky feeling.)

Those green, micro-fiber cloths FrogLube sells work great, too, and can be used for a lot of other things like: eyeglasses, computer screens, and cell phones. They are best washed-out by hand, don't hold onto dirt at all, and rinse out and dry really fast. I like the cloths, themselves, almost as much as I like the actual product! They're great for shining almost anything.

I only use FrogLube to clean and protect the outside of my guns; so I can't say how well, or not, it works as a bore cleaner/preservative? Good product, though, I intend to use it from now on.


NOTE: Don't put too much FrogLube on the gun at any one time. You only need to use a very little bit each time it's applied. Two or three separate coatings (and an applied source of light heat between coatings) are much better to do than gobbing on one heavy coating.

Beware of long term storage
I read an article where the gun was covered with green mold using Froglube.

'Article'? Who'd be stupid enough to write an article like that!

It's obvious that whoever wrote that 'article' used way too much FrogLube; and grossly neglected to wipe the excess off.

That dumb remark is roughly the equivalent of saying something as ridiculous as, "I waxed my car with all-natural Carnauba wax; and, a month later, I had green mold growing all over the car."

ANY significant buildup of natural wax can produce mold. Apply the product correctly; and you won't have a problem. (Geez!)
