Not my video but does fit what I’ve seen.December 31, 2014 at 11:05 am #33248
I use a variety of cleaners and lubes in my shop.
But what do I use at home?
There’s a small bottle of CLP in my war bag, just in case.
There’s another small bottle of Ballistol in my tool kit and a big bottle on the back of my bench.
I go through a lot of Ballistol, a lot.
Frog lube works, but the extra work involved hasn’t been worth it to me. Especially with the positive features of the Ballistol.
Most gun oils work as advertised. Some just work better or longer.
Its when you start doing silly things like salt solutions and such that not only do you find a winner, subjective at best, but you also have to c consider clp vs oil.December 31, 2014 at 11:40 am #33249
The best feature of frog lube is the minty smell. I like the applicator, and it cleans well, but it is not suitable for cold weather. It gums up and is stiff at 35f.December 31, 2014 at 12:30 pm #33251
After watching the test I’m going to try the CorrosionX on the inside of my vehicles engine area. All the salt on the roads here is bad.
Once upon a time having a basement shop I learned high humidity areas are bad on tools, machines guns. Better to have a shop in the attic, any day of the week. And maybe a gun safe if it can be hauled up there.
Pistols with a factory coating are wonderful. And the clp lube is ok. What happens though is the casing of the ammo begins to rust up. I’d like to find an anti corrosion spray just for ammo.
And voila, a little research… Dupont Teflon Non Stick Dry Film Lubricant.December 31, 2014 at 1:23 pm #33255
Be careful with the dry lubes and ammo.
Some of the carriers ane not sealant friendly and only a few guns were designed to use lubed ammo, it causes chamber issues from a lack of adhesion.
Use brass cased ammo not steel to begin with.
Nickle plated ammo tends to weather time and the elements better at least for the short term. Long term? Plain brass, just take it out and wipe it with a clean cloth during your maintenance cycle.December 31, 2014 at 7:22 pm #33257

Ptfe is everywhere. Its Ballistol thats hard to find over the counter. As an all purpose item it sounds better from a prep viewpoint. Modern advertising is really good at selling new and improved oils cleaners preservatives and somehow I’ve missed Ballistol for years. Its really back to the future again for me. lol
