Frog Lube
« on: March 20, 2014, 07:32:13 PM »
Not sure if this issue has been addressed before but I thought it best to ask those more familiar.

When using Frog Lube paste for first time on guns that have been cleaned with CLP and oil what is the best route to go.  Just warm parts with hair dryer then apply the Frog Lube?

I'm correct that the Frog Lube replaces both CLP and oil for cleaning and lubricating?

I highly recommend LPS Micro-X. It is very effective and safe for all materials; my gunsmith uses it on all of his work. You may find it less expensive than this link:

LPS® MICRO-X CONTACT CLEANER

                                    CONTACT CLEANER     sounds great!    any one OK?

What about denatured   or    Rubbing alchol?          ( I have here )

Thanks Tracker,  Bob

You may use anything you like; I use denatured alcohol on a lot of things but not my guns. I did use Gun Scrubber before taking the advice of my gunsmith. To be more specific I have read that denatured alcohol can damage o-rings, wood finish, and isn't as effective at removing powder residue as designated gun cleaners and solvents. The following is a quote from a USMC Captain:

"I would recommend you use solvents designed to clean firearms and leave the home remedies for the end of the world and redneck survivalists." A bit harsh perhaps but he has a point. Even though Frog-Lube solvent and LPS Micro-X seem expensive it takes very little to clean a gun and I have cans that are years old with cleaner still in them.
