Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I have found that cleaning after range trips is much easier and faster.

From the company;
Product Description
FROGLUBE® is a cutting edge NON-Toxic lubricant made from "food-grade" ingredients products in the USA using a proprietary formula. It is a non-toxic substance that dissolves carbon, grease and sludge on contact. It has a heavy specific gravity which allows it to "season" the metal by absorption deep into the pores and results in a durable slippery surface that reduces friction. Metal, plastic, urethane, nylon or other durable surfaces treated with FROGLUBE® are rejuvenated, preserved and will give extended years of service. FROGLUBE® will not harm the environment. It can be disposed of without the need of HAZMAT controls. If used in the workplace, employees will be protected from the affects of other toxic chemicals.
I got my kit from botachmainlogo.jpg a great FTF Vendor w/free shipping.

Practice up, my man. I'm going to be dirtying up at least one of your 1911's.

I can't wait! I will give Canebrake a extra coat of FrogLube to have it ready for you to dirty-up.

Don't be afraid to do it, it's probably the easiest gun to completely disassemble. YouTube it and practice it, eventually you'll be able to do it by memory.
