    frog lube is more expensive, but I have found that with the paste I do not use nearly as much as I do with other lubes.

    Same with the liquid. I go heavy if I clean or am just converting an AR to it. But after that it's just 3-5 drops of lube to start out a shoot.

    My only malfunction in 3 carbine classes came during a rainy Seattle day in a mud pit. I goofed off during lunch and forgot to lube. My LMT choked in the 9th hour of a 10 hour day. Can't remember round count prior.

    That said, is the Frog Lube paste/liquid combo something that will stay put even on a rainy day and forgetting to lube at lunch? Is that too much to ask?

    I was using Breakfree CLP at the time but have since moved to using a combo of Colt T-6 Grease and Weaponshield.

    Good question. I've never tried it in a really wet/rainy condition.

    I could let a carbine heat up in the sun to get the lube flowing then hammer it with the hose to see.

    Not too much to ask of FL.

    Just for the record; what lubes have been documented to do that?

    (I'm guessing Slip2000 EWL might be on that list, but if we gonna poke fingers at what products won't do what we should note whether or not any other product will or won't do it.)

    Froglube does good in rain. It will bead the rain and wick it away. I have not tried it like in the ocean or a pool but as far as rain goes it seems to work through it.

    Concidering that it was formulated from similar stuff to that which is used in food processing equipment and rollercoasters, I would bet that it does quite well "in the wet". I don't want to be the guy to throw my rifle in a pond then try to shoot it, concidering all my rifles are high-end builds, but I would venture to guess that it would probably be fine lube wise.

    Quick question. Once I have applied the FL as per the instructions and wipe off the excess, am I supposed to reapply a light coat before I shoot it? Or do I shoot it "dry"?

    It's liquifies when your bolt group warms up.

    Yep. Once you use the stuff, it'll become obvious to you.

    After eah range trip i wipe down the BCG and put a new layer of paste like I would any other lube, when the shootig starts it liquifys into a coating of oil.

    Thumbs up

    And if there's one weapons system where FrogLube really shows it's mettle it's the AR. I use it on everything from from my Buck Mark .22 to my Ithaca 12 gauge.

    This thread really has some legs. Plus good information.

    Before I used Froglube, I used Wilson Combat Ultima Lube Grease and Oil.

    The Wilson products are good but Froglube trumps them for AR's IMO.

    I drank the kool-aide; Love the smell, 6940 running like a sewing machine. Brass cases, steel cases, no FTF, FTE. Goodbye Mobil 1, hello Frog Lube.

    I only have 500 some odd rounds through my AR so far. I frog lubed it right out of the box. Great so far.

    This. I used to use 5W20. I use froglube in everything from my carry G19 to my suppressed SBR and SPR clone.

    I just ordered some FL that I intend on solely using on my ARs. I currently use FP10 for lube and have been pleased with its performance on my pistols. On the ARs my only complaint was the lube would run down the receiver while stored vertically in the safe. From what I have heard from FL users, this problem will be a thing of the past.

    you will never have runny lube disappear ever again. These pics are of my BCG after a week of sitting vertically in my gun safe. You can see where the lube never ran and how its just stayed put.
