First FrogLube application on me new Gen4 G20

Well folks I'm taking the froglube jump of faith! Main reason is I've had and will always have bouts of skin cancer. Not the bad kind per say, but i figure why not try it out since I've heard good things about it.
But I have to say, so far I'm impressed. With the initial application it's a little time consuming but easy. And it smells like wintergreen minty type of smell, and very slick. I'm sure several of you have used it and have written about it. Just wanted to let ya know. Can't wait to see how easy it cleans up after the range. I have a military friends who will be back next week and we will head to the range. Says his .45 will make a 10mm seems like a pellet gun. I said your on LOL!

I used to use Frog Lube. It is slick...but a little "gritty" compared to Slip 2000. They are both good, but I've since switched to Slip 2000 for a slicker weapon lube/cleaner (which is also non-toxic bio-safe).

I've heard of slip 2000 also, but haven't researched it yet. I think I'll check it out also. Thanks for the reminder!

Strictly anecdotal.....a few (4-5) gun buddies used FrogLube on the Glocks and Sigs. The down side, and the reason they quit using it was it seemed to attract a lot of debris over the course of carrying and shooting. The have since gone back to their prior lubes, Mobil One, etc. One of the guys still use it in some of their rifles/shotguns, but I think that is it.

As I said, just anecdotal, I didn't move over to FL because of their experiences. YMMV.

I did see a blog where a sig owner said he switched to slip 2000 for the reason that Froglube would drip down into his trigger assembly and get a bit gummed up over time. not sure how that will effect my G20. But I did see a lot of good reviews on slip2000 also. So Ill try a starter kit of that after I use Froglube to see if there is a huge difference. And like froglube, slip 2000 isn't cheap. But you get what ya pay for at times.

This would confirm the gumming up that was mentioned in the blog.

Well sometimes there is "too much of a good thing."

Very true indeed. After the initial heated cleaning treatment i lubed the G20 in the places GLOCK says to. Its odd because you don't see the oil film per say. Yet when you rub the barrel area you can feel how slick it is. You're thinking to yourself, didn't I put a drop there yesterday?
