Frog lube! (Too many threads!)

So I bought the 4oz kit of frog lube, and starded treating my SR9 as indicated on the instructions it came with, I finished treating and starded assembling it back together when i noticed the Fire control housing pin somehow loosened on its own and fell out! This thing is slick! I also notice a slightly lighter trigger pull...and the gun is just simply smoother all around. I'm glad I purchased this product and don't plan on using anything else from now on...Now just to hit the range this weekend

I got a small tub of frog lube but haven't tried it yet. Maybe I will now. Did you go over your firearm first with alcohol to remove all oil?

Yes, I took a old t shirt and put just a tad bit of rubbing alcohol and just went over the SR9 nothing major, and proceeded with warming up the metal with a blow dryer etc etc...just careful cause pins might fall out:/

After reading this thread i emailed marketing@froglube.com requesting samples. They forwarded my request to a regional distributer and they are sending me 2 samples to try. Cant beat that. It shows they stand behind their product at least.

It sure looks like an interesting product.

The ONLY thing that I would be concerned with is that, being a natural product, would it have a tendency to degrade or maybe even succumb to mold or fungus or some stuff like that over time?

Of course a nice green and gray fuzz would help camo a rifle......

I went with Eezox. I guess I could try and find a sample of FL, but I'm so happy with the Eezox that I don't know if I would bother.

Received my samples and all I can say is "WOW"... Made cleaning sooooo much easier. I'm a customer for life. I am OCD when it comes to cleaning my gun and this stuff is simply amazing. I plan on using it for my slide grooves and barrel. After shooting 150 rnds of WWB which is dirty as hell, but cheap I was able to clean my SR9c to my satisfaction using about 1/3 of the patches I normally do. This stuff does not let anything stick to it!

I'm interested in this stuff. I understand that when I can FINALLY pick up my SR9c I'll have to get the factory gunk out of the pistol and then give it a nice light cleaning. This will do the trick, yes?

Usually when lubricants are touted as being natural based they are mainly comprised of ester compounds which by the way are way more stable than lesser mineral based lubes. Ester based lubes are the only lubricants that can withstand the high heat and extreme cold associated with space travel. Not saying I know this product is of this classification because I don't.

I started using Froglube a few months ago on my Glock 19 and 26 and couldn't be happier. In fact, every firearm I own has now been Froglubed and I plan on buying more of the product this weekend at the Crossroads GS in Phoenix.

It's an amazing product......
