Frog Lube

Being in the gun lube business I don’t normally post about any other brands. However, I’m going to take this opportunity to share my first impressions. I’ve heard from others about their stories and haven’t really paid any attention because I was never going to use the stuff. This time is different because I got a sample of Frog Lube included with a muzzle brake. I won’t give the brand of break because I don’t want to cast any light on them because of this post.

Sample Tubes

Okay, here it it. First impression…..

The tube was stiff. I thought that was odd. I had to ask myself, “this is supposed to be oil, right?” Well, I continued to squeeze the tube for a moment and it broke loose and became viscus again.

First thought, “whiskey, tango, foxtrot?”

I don’t want to defame the company in any way here so please don’t take this as having any intention to do so. This experience brings up what I think is a valid question. If it dries out in the tube, which is air tight, what is it going to do on my gun? This tube was hardened like it had a wax interior shell. This stuff does the same thing on your gun because you store it for some length of time and you have the potential for malfunctions because of the hardened lube. Sorry, and truly no offense meant here Frog Lube, but I don’t want a malfunction of my nightstand gun because it hasn’t been fired in a few days. I don’t know how long it took to get that way in the tube but without even opening the sample I already don’t trust it enough to put it on any of my weapons. I think the sample will more likely be headed for the trash. Sorry, bro.

  1. That’s a good thing. It tends to clump and cause malfs in AR-15s. In fact, Academi (used to be Blackwater) says to its new AR-15 Armorer class graduates to not use the stuff as it’s crap. It’s also the only “lubricant” that has ever gone rancid on me in use of firearms. It’s also edible, which is exactly the thing I want my firearms lubricant to be. If I wanted a minty paste, I’d get a dessert, not a firearms lubricant.

    1. That is the only real competition I have ever seen for Slipstream. I have to chuckle about them testing it against the some of the worst gun lubes on the market though. Rem Oil…really?
