Anyone use FrogLube? I have been using it for a while with no problems until this weekend. I was shooting my AR and it ran fine but the trigger didn’t feel right and the gun in general felt sluggish. My 308 bolt action seemed a little rough. When i started cleaning them the FrogLube had gummed up in the lower and the BCG on my AR. Needless to say I spent the rest of the day scrubbing the stuff out. Just wondering if anyone else has seen this.

I use synthetic motor oil on all my firearms, 1911's, AR's, Shield, etc. I apply it with an artist brush. Never had any problems.

Just my experience over thousands of rounds.

Same here.  Forget frog lube, save your money.

I think Frog Lube has essentially been debunked.  There are better products for less money.

Frog Lube is the one that’s basically vegetable oil isn’t it?

That’s why your guns are gumming up @swiley383

Yes I believe so. That's how I remember it.

I haven’t seen it from Frog lube, but I’ve seen it plenty (not just guns) from WD40.

I’m always amused at the lube threads. All this high end "new" stuff and guess who never has problems? The guys using regular old school gun oil or even motor oil. :)

Safariland CLP and gun grease.

I did upgrade to Tetra gun grease as a recommendation to a new (me) AR owner.

No issues on any of my firearms to date

Do you have any links to Frog Lube reviews handy?

What’s one of the hardest things to test on any lube? Time. (I want to use time tested products)

Do you have a problem with the lube you are using? (If it ain’t broke; don’t fix it)

If your weapon isn’t operating properly is it lube related?

Don’t be a test dummy.

I had the same problem. Read the ad, looked like the best thing since self rising flour.

Carried my AR to do some target shooting sometime later after lubing. Ran very sluggish, barely function. Had one heck of a time cleaning the gun(s).

Lesson learned. Stay the heck away from it.

Thanks - I read that one.

I'm using it as a bore rust protectant in a truck gun.  All lubing is with bacon grease.  :)

I use Frog Lube on my hand planes (woodworking) to prevent rust.  It leaves a waxy film on them which is fine on a hand plane or similar tool.  Don't use it on anything that moves, screw threads, bolt slides, etc.  Never on guns.  I have been using Go Juice oil and grease and it is doing what I want it to do.
