I can tell you one thing Navy SEALS do not enjoy doing…cleaning their guns. I’m on that list. But if you like shooting like I do, cleaning your gun in a necessary evil. I use to spend many hours cleaning my gun until I was introduced to a new product at a local gun show: FrogLube. This stuff has changed the way I clean my guns.
FrogLube is a biobased cleaner, lube and protectant (CLP) made from food grade ingredients. Its petroleum – free (and actually smells good!) and works by actually absorbing into metal pores. It cleans at room temperature and dissolves carbon and active corrosion on contact. Unlike other lubes, it will not ‘bake on’ during firing. FrogLube drastically reduces my cleaning time, eliminates friction and provides lasting protection from rust.
I feel like a spokesman…but I’m not. This is just one of those products you use and want to tell people about. After I had used it on a few of my guns for about a month of shooting, I threw away all my other cleaning supplies. The only thing I have in my cleaning box now is FrogLube.
The directions that come with the product are fairly simple. First you clean all the other products off you gun and then warm your gun up. I’ve used 10 minutes of sunlight and a hair dryer when I did it at night. After the gun is warm I lathered the stuff on and put it away. When I get to the range I wiped off the excess and started shooting. Although I was basically shooting a “dry gun,” the weapons action was unbelievably smooth and I never had any jams.
I’ve seen FrogLube for sale at a few of the local gun shops, so you should be able to find it pretty easy. I bought mine at the last Gun Show here in San Diego and talked the guy down a few bucks (don’t buy anything at a gun show for what they ask!). T3Gear.com also sells it online at http://t3gear.com/guncleaning.aspx
Spend more time shooting and less time cleaning!
