While there is good information contained in that article, I have always disagreed with his assessment of WD-40's resistance to corrosion. And Brownell's conducted a rather extensive test which helped me reach that conclusion. It a test it conducted WD-40 scored at or near the top in regards to corrosion protection. (It appears as last product tested at the bottom of the page).

"WD-40: WD-40 was never meant to be a lubricant – it was designed as a moisture displacer. It’s far too light for any load protection, has incredibly poor corrosion resistance, contains zero boundary lubricants, and rapidly oxidizes to form a sickly yellow varnish (hint: this is not good for delicate internal lockwork.) There are those who will defend this stuff vehemently, but then again you can still find people who think smokeless powder is a passing fad. Just. Don’t."

Gun Cleaning Clinic: Knowing the Limits of Rust Preventatives | World's Largest Supplier of Firearm Accessories, Gun Parts and Gunsmithing Tools - BROWNELLS

"WD-40 has been around a long time and earned the reputation as an excellent rust preventive for exterior surfaces of firearms. Test plates show excellent moisture displacement. Minimal rust formation is present; almost no pitting is visible after degreasing."

Also a little bit goes along way so the cost doesn't hurt that bad.
I tried FROGLUBE on my KIMBER Ultra CDP + and the barrel started to rust in this Florida humidity. Did the 3 step process of application. Did not take long to quit that stuff. I do use it to dissolve the build up 22 LR ammo makes on the bolts and firing pin faces. Other than this it just sits on the bench.

Back last December I was at my club range early on a Monday morning. It was sunny, and about 50 degrees at the time. I had the place all to myself for about an hour, when this truck pulled up. A guy was there with his young son. After they got set up they uncased a Stag Arms AR-15. I saw him pulling hard on the charging handle, trying to get the bolt back. All to no avail. After a couple of minutes I walked over and asked if I could help. He asked if I knew what was wrong, and handed me the weapon. I could smell a slight trace of mint as I closely examined the gun. I asked when he last shot it, and he said it was in his safe since early last Summer. I then asked what he lubed it with, and he told me...... you guessed it, Frog Lube.

I pulled on the charging handle VERY HARD, and the bolt didn't budge. He then tried to get it open with no luck. This went on for about 10 minutes, and they were just about ready to call it quits and head back home. Normally I don't like screwing around with other peoples guns, but this poor guy seemed at a loss. I told him I had a spare charging handle in my range cart, and I would be glad to let him use it if his broke, or got damaged trying to get it open. I had him hold the weapon firmly by the forend with the muzzle off to his side while pointing it downrange, while I held the butt with one hand, and yanked on the charging handle as hard as I possibly could with mechanics gloves on. Finally it opened.

I cycled it a few times and pulled the rear takedown pin, and removed the bolt carrier and charging handle. I disassembled the firing pin retaining pin, pulled both the pin, bolt cam pin, and the bolt out of the gun. I had to push the cam pin out with the firing pin it was so gummed up. Everything I touched was a complete gooey, gummed up mess. Almost like it was coated with Molasses, only thicker, and just as brown. I had a big bottle of Hoppes #9 with me and some rags. And he spent about 15 minutes trying to clean everything off as best he could. I had some Mobil 1 in a squeeze bottle, and I liberally soaked everything with it until the parts were literally dripping. We reassembled it, and it ran like a scalded dog. Both he and his son were very happy. Needless to say he told me he was done with that garbage. I was amazed how that junk locked up that gun.

Frog Lube in a nutshell. Hard to keep from laughing but at the same time, I'm sympathetic to those who get taken in by the hype.

I have been using Lubriplate on all my weapons since I was introduced to it in Marine Corps boot camp back in the 60's.

I have seen an M-60 machine gun stand up to an extended firefight with little more than a barrel exchange or canteen

of water poured over it (urine in extremis) after being cleaned and lubed with Lubriplate. I guess it will work on any semi auto pistol.

I bought a 14 oz. can of Lubriplate 130-A Mil Spec Grease 2 years ago and I still have about ⅓ of the can left. I use it on all of my pistols and rifles.

Robert Burke (The SigArmorer) posted an opinion of FrogLube today on his Facebook page (The Sig Armorer, FFL licensed), needless to say I'm am so glad I never took the bait becomes I am so impulsive to have something different.

For the last 6 or 7 years I've been using LSA on my pistols, a thin layer of course. It keeps a SAW running and doesn't burn up very quick plus it's easy to wipe up. Couple drops on the rails and runs like a champ. After every detailed cleaning I recoat all my small internal parts with RemOil oil.
