The only metal things I season are my iron cookwares.
Great,.....another "lube pissin match"
I once ran a Springfield GI for 500 rounds using only KY.
As for the current issues CLP, I'd rather use a lube that doesn't
smell like rotten tuna!
Current Break-Free smells like dead fish now? What gives? It used to smell pretty good.
Yes.. Nothing special, I use Ballistol when I want to go green it has some actual useful properties.
Frog lube is gimmicky .
A guy i used to supervise is now a weapons troop on Gunships.
He told me about it......could get the stock class
I use a mixture of 50/50 walnut oil and tiger semen. Of course it is a bit difficult to get the walnut oil. do you know how hard you have to squeeze those nuts to get the oil out?
Really folks, this obsessive society we have created is just insane "the perfect gun lube"? Get real. how many m-1s have you ever seen that were actually worn out on the bearing points as opposed to throat erosion? Most of the grease used in WWII was no more than axel grease.
Getting overly concerned about the lube is like worrying about which camo pattern is best for your Underoos.
But my lube had shown by the laboratory to be 0.01% better than the other lube!!!
We're not talking about lubricants for the Mars Rover or the Space Shuttle here. It's just oil folks. Pull some off your dipstick or out of a bottle in the garage. It will work just fine as a lube.
Breakfree/FP10/Miltec/Slip2000 etc. The all work, they all work pretty good. Try one and if works you're set. If it doesn't try something else. For me FP-10 works as the best CLP, it just seems to keep pulling out crud forever when it soaks. For lube I like Slip2000 but honestly anything sitting on the shelf works. In a SHTF situation axle grease and used engine oil will probably far exceed the needs for most modern firearms.
I will keep it simple and will stick with FrogLube.

For what FrogLube costs you could almost buy a lifetime supply of FP-10 and Slideglide.
I got a tub of slide glide for free, ill probably use that forever. But damn, frog lube smells AWESOME
a quart of Amsoil 10W30 is $9.55 and will last probably 20 years.
I use Mobil one SYN. 20/50 in my Harley. What is left in the bottles when I do an oil change I drain into a smaller bottle. It works as good as anything I've ever used. I call it HOG Lube. I've used it on everything from a Kel Tec P3at to and M1 Garand and a whole lot of pistols and rifles in between. I've used other lubes and greases but always seem to return my HOG Lube.
lets not get off topic here. the OP's question is...."How often do apply the paste treatment to your 1911's?"
and not "what lube do you use"
OK Sorry ....Never.
Don't use it.
Little bit of Amsoil and ATF never hurt nobody.
I'm maybe a little on the overkill side, but I heat the weapon with a hair dryer, lube it up with the grease on a toothbrush and, after firing, I wipe her down till clean with the Froglube solvent, then heat her and repeat, just not using as much. I use the liquid on the rails.
It is a 1911 not a grand prix engine
Def on the overkill side
