FrogLube Question
Okay, I did the very first initial application of frog lube the other day. I understand that after that I only have to brush off the debris. But when do you have to reapply it and what is that interval time?

So I read the instructions on the link, and they are extremely vague. So what is the interval for reapplication? I cannot get that answer on that page.

I use Mobil 1 synthetic . I lube my bolt every time I hit the range . I have a red headed step child AR that was abused most of the summer , never cleaned , only lubed and we used what ever ammo people had . Steel, brass, fmjs, soft points , and hps . We ran some where between 6000-8000 rds thru is before ammo prices sky rocketed and we quit . Not one failure beside a few fail to fires " heavy primers in PMC ammo " it looked terrible , it was caked on oil, carbon and unburnt powder and it still ran like a top. Finally cleaned it over the winter . We never changed the gas rings or anything . Just lube it lightly when i hit the range . I don't suggest doing like I did and torturing it . But u don't need to clean it every outting unless your putting thousands of round thru it . We were just trying to make it quit and couldn't make it happen in over 6000 rds . Just lube the bolt regularly and it will be fine

I've found nothing gimmicky with Froglube and have been using it for a few months now with great results when applied properly.

It protects physically, not so much chemically. A PHYSICAL barrier is what it creates. If you are using it as a protectant, put it on THICK! I failed to do this initially testing it. Subsequently, it has done very well when applied properly for storage.

Froglube mixes and plays just fine with petrochemicals--the CLP contains about 50% petrochemicals in the form of PAO. Don't sweat about alcohol and all that, just change the weapon over to it, if you want. No magic here.

Froglube really does keep carbon from sticking--but equally as important, when FL burns off, it does NOT leave any ash or coked deposits behind.

To me gimmicky would be using a synthetic motor oil but different strokes for different folks.

It goes on most of my guns, to include my Sig MK25 226 and I reapply after about 200 rds fired.

For the initial application I scrubbed my gun in alcohol. Then used a hair dryer to heat the gun up as I scrubbed in frog lube. Let it set for about a day. Then applied it that way again. Let it set another day, wiped it clean and haven't applied anymore in about 2 k rounds. All carbon wipes off easily. Gun is "dry" to the touch but you can see "wetness" when you get it hot. (God that sounds bad).

After the next range day I may see if I can get the metal to take more lube and let it sink in. But, as the instructions state, you will get to the point it won't take anymore lube. It'll set on top and after cooling you just wipe it off.

I love the stuff so far, then again I've only used it on a sig p229. I've gone maybe 300-400 rounds before wiping it clean with a micro-fiber. No problems at all and a clean gun at all times.

I also like that since it is "dry", I never have any lube stains on my shirts after a day of carrying hehe.
