+1, that's what I said!

Looks like good ol' Super Lube, which BTW isn't very expensive, is still kicking butt. Glad I keep some of the little tubes in my shooting bags.

That big tube of Super Lube cost $9.99 at Ace Hardware. The 4oz jar of Frog Lube cost $9.99 (an 8oz bottle of Frog Lube liquid is over $25), and the tube of T/C Natural Lube cost $7.99.

That could be - though I'm not sure being a Navy SEAL makes him a chemical engineer. Or it could be that he came up with a product to make his small company, Audemous, Inc, in San Diego, California profitable. No doubt, he's got a helluva marketing engine in place. Every website seems to be crawling with distributors. Frog Lube marketing puts Amway to shame.

I'd like to see a comparison of Frog Lube with G96, aerosol white lithium grease and Tri-Flow {PTFE}.

I still like the methodology of the RCMP test as it includes actual measurements of slide wear as opposed to "my experience says"...

I have decades and a hell of a lot of field and outdoor experience with guns under all weather and exposure conditions.

Enough experience, in fact, to know that "my experience" is sometimes WRONG.

I love our SEALs and all they've done. But when it comes to lubricants that protect my firearms investments, I kinda want a college nerd, the kind that aced all his chemistry tests, didn't get laid, and thought the periodic table was sexy coming up with my grease.

Anyways, here's another video I shot of Frog Lube and Super Lube.

Can't say it's directly comparable to slide wear on pistols, but can say I've hunted G-96 treated shotguns from dang near 100 degree to -25 below F.
Malfunctions: None. Rust or other such issues: Non-existent.

Ditto.

I've used it for several years quite regularly on my ski pistols and rifles and it seems to stay slippery regardless of temps and in the RCMP test was one of the top performers in the reciprocating slide test, beating out even some favored and touted greases in actual measured slide wear.

It is relatively cheap, easy to apply and pretty readily available and can as you've mentioned be used as a cleaner, too.

I don't know what the stuff is, but it works.

I do NOT use it on rifle bores. Reason is, some of the modern high tech lubes leave a strong film in the bore that can effect POI of rounds and alter impact till it wears out. I am not certain G96 will do this but I use Hoppes and leave the bores wet with it after cleaning, ditto pistols. With rifles, I run a dry patch thru before shooting...sometimes.

The new G96 CLP is the CLP currently issued to the Military & is fantastic. Frog Lube is pure snake oil. Sadly, many shooters are gullible & are easy prey to hucksters. Frog Lube says this is a long lost formula from the past. Right. It's actually repackaged roller coaster lubricant and does nothing special.

When it comes to lube/cleaners I trust the Ph.D.'s and not Mr. Haney off Green Acres.

Interesting discussion. For comparison purposes I've ordered a sample kit from Mil-Comm to check out their product line. $14.99 for their cleaner, lube and grease.
I'll let you know my impression after I've used it.

Just got done curing mine with Frog Lube. Gotta wait about an hour then give it a dry wipe down. Anyone have a diagram on the main points underneath the grips that I should put a dot of Mil-Comm TW25B?

I use a nitro solvent on rifle bores. I will finish with a slightly damp patch of G96 or Ballistol.
I use so little, I doubt it would be a problem.
Plus, I'm not doing anything mission-critical. I figure I'll shoot anything even possibly affecting accuracy in the first 10 or 20 rounds of punching paper or plinking.
