I'm big on either the 10-8 lube which has Moly built in, or LSA Semi-fluid from the Military.

Froglube

This would seem to be a really fantastic product:

I know Hilton Yam was using it, but I don't know
what his testing concluded. Anyone else using
Froglube?

I am looking at some on my desk while I am typing this. I saw all the love about this product and bought a sample for evaluation which comes in this tidy package with a polishing cloth, brush, paste and liquid. I run my current 1911 pretty hot so I will give it a try starting next week. After a chance to see how it performs, I will post back again from one persons perspective.

I have been using the old FP10, Slip2000EWL and Gunbutter depending on which I find first. All three of those have managed to keep me from binding up. So my perspective will be in comparison of those lubes and a pile of ammo.

Reminds me of the lube that GM used to pack with steering gear repair parts. I used to have to wash my hands half way through a steering gear rebuild so I could hold the tools.


Is this the same stuff that is light green in color and referred to as velocity grease? Used in CV joints?

I have been using Frog Lube but am thinking about trying Lucas oil treatment. That stuff is sticky and should stay where you put it. My not be great for the outside. That may be a good place for royal purple.
I have a long way to go before I run out of frog lube.
Guns going into storage get Breakfree.

Nope...the cv joint grease is kind of milky in appearance. The gear box grease was specifically for the seal areas of the steering gear and was translucent tan at first and bright blue later. And slippery as anything I have ever worked with. I'd buy a 30 pound tub of it if I could find it.

I use a grease called Jardine's Extreme from John Jardine. It's been great not only on 1911's but other firearms as well. www.jardinesextreme.com

Good Shooting,

Yes, it's filthy stuff but it works great. The only bad things I can say are that it stains clothing and hands and it doesn't dissolve, suspend, or mix well in a liquid lube. I mix it with silicone or Break Free and use a small paint brush for rails and hammer hooks etc.. for long term. If the liquid partially evaporates the dry lube is still there.
