I've been seeing a lot of good Frog Lube talk lately. I'm typically a grease guy, due to my personal experience that most oils I use are dried up and gone in a couple weeks, even the good ones like MPro7 and Weaponshield, both of which aren't supposed to dry up.

Frog lube looks interesting though and will probably be the next thing the mani the brown truck leaves at my house

Sorry for the delay, I missed it.

Yes, you will see normal wear witness marks in those locations.

What you are looking for are advanced wear indicators such as galling, wear ridges, cracks and potential fatigue.

Fred, don't get duped into buying the "kit" with both the liquid and paste along with a rag and a solder acid brush. You probably have the brush (or buy 6 for what you pay for one in the kit.) and any rag works.

I suggest you go with the 4 oz tub of the paste. It goes far and will do several guns, several times. It works on metal, plastic and wood. I do everything including my grips. I don't have a pair of G-10 grips, yet, but don't think I'd use it on them.

Does it work? So far it looks good.
