    Militec-1 is an excellent lubricant. it smells terrible, IMO but it really does work, and a very little goes a long way.

    I've been very happy with M-Pro 7 and some Slip 2000 in the slide rails.

    I used to use Rem oil. A friend of mine swears by Safari Charlie. I picked up a can at a recent gun show and I like it.

    I've used a lot of different weapon lubes and CLP type stuff.
    I used frog lube and it worked very well.
    What I've used for years in the Military and in classes and long range days has been Slip 2000 EWL. It stays put and wipes clean.
    It worked good on really dirty machine guns too.

    SLIP 2000 EWL
    I've used lots of different lubes including Mil-Tec, Strike Hold, Break Free, Rem Oil, etc. EWL works best for me in a wide variety of temperatures. I am interested in Fireclean, but I have no problems with EWL.

    I use Frog Lube, some Rem Oil and Ballistol, but I heard from an NRA instructor of a product called SlideGlide. If you look them up through Google you will find an extensive site with information on various lube viscosity, etc.

    Frog lube works for me. I'm not sure if it's actually better than hoppe's or anything else, but the bottle sure send to last forever.

    Frog Lube is actually a 2 part product including a solvent and the lube. I could have sworn that was not their first claim, but I could easily be wrong.

    I have been using it for a couple of years now and just used the lube for the first year (no solvent at all). I have taken many rifle and pistol classes and have yet to have any failure due to lubrication.

    I use a heat gun on low to apply the lube. You don't have to get the metal hot, you just want it warm to the touch.

    Honestly, I don't believe it is any better than most of the other popular products. Its winning feature is that it is a non-toxic product with a pleasant smell which allows me to do all my cleaning at the kitchen table. I can even toss the cleaning rags in the washing machine. You can't do that with something like Hoppe's (and live if you are married).

    Breakfree CLP for everything pistol and AR15.

    I have RemOil which I use on my Marlin 60 .22 rifle and use it on my reloading dies. RemOil is very thin and evaporates so I don't think it is that good. Worked well on my shotgun during end of season duck/goose hunting when it was cold out as it didn't thicken up like a heavier gun oil does.

    MY OPINION.

    Take the Frog Lube and carefully toss it in the trash. Then clean your gun and apply Break fee CLP. then go enjoy a beer.

    I use Tuf-Glide by Sentry Solutions. It is a dry film lubricant. I've been very happy with it.

    I use Breakthrough oil and solvent for knives and firearms, and sometimes use Rand CLP.

    Mobil1 motorcycle oil, in a needle oiler bottle from Brownells. A quart of oil is a lifetime supply.

    I used to use breakfree. Tried Froglube according to instructions. Will NEVER go back to a petroleum based lube. If used according to instructions, Froglube will work flawlessly ! I use it on my handguns, AR's and shotguns. great stuff and it's NATURAL !
    Those that knock it, don't use it like it is designed to be used. It is not a lubricant that you can just smear on. You need to warm and let it "season" the metals.
