    Hi,
    About 6 month's ago after reading an article in GunTests mag I found out about, Mil Comm Products and the Synthetic Oil and Gun Grease they have,
    Being a syn. not a petroleum product it is also environmentally safe.
    It is also a Mil Spec grade lubricant and NRA Endorsed.
    I love it and it cleans and lubes all my Ruger's , smith's and Remington's
    You can check it out at
    www.nraguncare.com
    Also available at Amazon.
    :cool:

    I just got one of the kits yesterday. The reloading/gun room indeed smells like mint:) I took a couple of my smallest pistols apart and went through the recommended procedure of cleaning with alcohol then heating up the guns and brushing Froglube on the hot parts. It seems to work good. I'll take them to the range tomorrow and see how easy they are to clean when I get home.
    One benifit I can see already is the stuff is good for dry skin. My hands are pretty beat up from dry winter conditions and repeated washing. They are much better today after playing with the green stuff.:D

    Froglube. My LGS gave me the whole sales pitch when we purchased our first two handguns. Liked what he had to say and from what I've experienced so far it's a great product.

    While doing some 4x4 today had a chance to fire up some ammo and had lubed the guns with "Froglube".
    Found when cleaning that all they needed was a good wipe down.
    Really like the benefits of Froglube.

    Did a field strip of the pistol, and the feed ramp on the barrel wipes clean to a mirror finish with the swipe of your pinky with a small cloth. I have put away all of my other gun cleaning products because it works so well, carbon cannot and will not stick to any part of a gun that is properly treated. I don't have to worry about taking any oil to the range with me or anything. I love the stuff.

    Now this is just my own experience with FL.

    Here's a good article on it.

    Hoppe's. Grew up with it, and the smell of it reminds me of being a young 'un watching my grandfather clean his guns with it. Love the stuff.

    I use a 2/3 mix of Mobil One 20/50 and 1/3 Mobil One transmission fluid. I learned this mix from a friend of my that shoots cowboy action. Been using this mix for 4 years now and I won't switch back. I also use the Mobil One gear grease. I bought a pack of syringes of different sizes from Midway and use them to put the grease where I want on the guns.

    I use Korean War vintage Lubriplate that my dad brought home from said war. Its in little plastic cups and it still smells fresh as a daisy. I use it on all my guns for lubrication. I also use Gunslick to smooth revolver actions.
