Frog Lube review

19 posts in this topic

Just got my Frog Lube from BrowningBDA. Thanks, man!

I got a tub of it and a bottle of the liquid (more like a gel...the consistency of liquid soap). The paste is just that: it's kind of like shoe polish.

First impression? MINT! It smells like a Certs. Seriously! I've never smelled a CLP that smelled (what's conventionally thought of as) pleasant. I have a feeling that I'm going to get asked if I'm chewing on a mint while I'm in public...or maybe if I'm having muscle soreness and have Bengay on!

So I headed downstairs and decided to use it to clean my HK P7 PSP. I broke the P7 down and squirted some liquid Frog down the bore and used a bore snake to clean it. I rubbed cotton cloth (like a 6"x6" cotton patch..lint free...good stuff) into the top of the Frog paste and cleaned all the other parts I could reach. Then I used an Otis Brush like a toothbrush to apply it to the parts I couldn't reach with the cotton cloth. I cleaned off the brush and let the paste sit. I used the brush to scrub the paste off of the outsides and insides of the gun. I used another cloth to remove all of the ucky Frog. I reapplied some and spot-checked for more carbon build-up. Clean. I reassembled and used a new cloth to polish some frog into the outside of the gun.

In the summer, I have had a little bit of surface rust under the grips and along the left side of the forward frame. We'll see as I reapply and it warms up outside how the protective properties of the Frog Lube works.

Thanks again, BDA. You truly are a BAMF!

Their site says, "ALL NATURAL, NON-TOXIC, ENVIRONMENTALLY GREEN," so I don't know if it's nutritious, but I don't think it will kill you.

Yup... its edible. I watched a dude at SHOT show eat it. Its too expensive for chip dip though... maybe an ice cream topping?

:laughing1: Even though Hoppes and CLP smell good to us, they don't (objectively) smell good.

Use any yet, Em?

I hear you guys, but outta respect for admin and all his work here, I dont want to "use" his forum to pimp out stuff. The frog lube was cool stuff that I knew about after shot... and I did a write up on for Guns, and so I wanted to pass this little gem onto you guys.

Where does your wife work bud? Trust.. I know your pain... for a few years, I worked the night shift while the wife worked days, and I had to try & sleep and take care of the babies. It was a rough time...

I still enjoy midnights, but I was on inservice for a week and worked day shift. I have to admit that it was kind of nice, but I'll take midnights with weekends off over days with crap days off.

Just bought some Frog Lube after remembering this recommendation. Havent used it extensively but it didnt have any trouble removing the corrosion buildup around the grip screws(or actually the grip screw, uh, nuts - under the grips.)

The downside was that it was $48 for 16oz. Thats 8oz paste and 8oz liquid just like the one Jared's got above. Plus a micro fiber rag.

The guy at the store said that if I baked the firearm... in the oven... and then applied the Frog paste, that it would seep into the metal pores and greatly reduce future fouling build-up. Any thoughts??

Also, any recommendations on cleaning the congealed goo from the underside of the grips and on the frame under the grips? I scraped a lot of it with a razor but there's still a thin coat that I cant seem to get with a toothbrush and elbow grease.

Maybe on low. I just brush on the paste then heat it with a hair drier (thanks, dear). It melts and -- I guess -- seeps into the metal. It has prevented some rust where it liked to show up on the P7, so I guess it works.

CLP won't break the goo?
