This is a discussion on Lube? within the SIG Sauer Pistols forums, part of the SIG Sauer Forum category; I use 085 ultra bore to clean lube and protect and use mil-com tw25b grease on every thing that slides works great...

I have been using Frog Lube for a year. No problems with it. It is a CLP.

2nd post says it all. Now Glocks? That's different.

Right now I'm only using Ballistol to clean, and leaving the rails and friction surfaces wet via a Q-Tip when done.

Frog Lube looks VERY interesting and effective, but it is not a CLP, just a LP?
I really like Ballistol and use it on the barrel and as a wipe-down cleaner for other parts. It's all I use to clean my Glocks, although I do use some good oil (currently using Nano Oil) to lube the six lubrication points on the frame with probably less than 1 drop of oil total. Hickok45 has a Glock cleaning video up and that's pretty much exactly how I do mine except he uses Ballistol to lube the frame lubrication points, while I use Nano Oil. I don't use any grease on my Glocks, but I do use Slide Lube Lite on my P938 and Ruger P92DC as described in the 2nd post. Great stuff.

I use to live in Montana. When the weather would turn cold I'd switch to a dry lube. When it's hitting -20 and below that wet lubes could cause some problems. First time I noticed it was on my hunting rifle. The wet lube on my rifle was a little on the firm side. After that when I was out in the elements I'd use Rem Drilube. It's tested to -40, and worked great. I'd go to the range and practice in cold weather with gloves and coat on. My winter sidearm at the time was my HK USP .45. I'd go shoot twice a month, and the temp's would get into the -20's and -30's at time.

Guns are like cars, you will get the crowd who thinks you need a microscope and a PhD in lubrication. The fact is a decent post shooting cleaning with CLP, or whatever retail product and following the insert directions is more than adequate. Sigs are tough, why do you think it is the handgun of choice with Navy Special Warfare?

Here is Sigs take on it and I tend to agree with them.

So far I am very pleased with FL and see no reason to change.
