    Have used Hoppes for a long time but really hoping to find something better if there is such a thing. I've read a lot about break free clp. Heard of a guy that used bearing grease too. What about you?

    I've been using FrogLube for years. I haven't had any problems with my daily carry guns or any rifles. There are people on both sides of the FrogLube fence, so I'm sure someone will probably chime in with other experiences. I use FrogLube on my knives and tools as well. Non toxic and it smells minty.
    It's difficult for me to explain, but if you have parts that you can warm with a heat gun or blow dryer, the lube is supposed to 'season' the metal. I guess to best way to describe it is sorta like seasoning a cast iron skillet or pan. My Glock 43 and AR's are slippery yet not WET.

    I'd personally go with one-shot. Basically tied or bested Froglube in every test & not tedious to apply, unlike Froglube. Honestly though, nobody does anything remotely close to those tests to a gun that they value, but those 2 stood out, I think.

    Before I retired I was the Armorer for my jail. Slip 2000 we’re the only products I used and still use.
    I can’t recommend them highly enough.
    Check out they’re website.

    They failed early on in the corrosion testing in my link above.

    I think it’s important to remember that these tests are done in extreme conditions and any product will allow rust in its own time. When I was my agency’s armorer I looked up Slip 2000’s website and saw that many agencies that use it including the Marine Corps. I switched immediately and never looked back. A regular maintenance schedule using a product designed for firearms should do just fine.

    Believe it or not I still use 3in1 oil on just about everything. My dad would say just keep em oiled and they’ll last forever. Still holds true!
