That's the exact same evaluation previously linked to above in the 2nd reply.

Don't spray anything directly on a gun, instead spray it on a rag and wipe it on.Exception- if gun is disassembled,you can spray cleaner on the parts, but wipe it off or use compressed air.

I thought of that and would mask off the places I would not want this product on. The article testing 46 different products was very interesting. As one other mentioned unfortunately the tester didn't use different waxes. I have been using Sea Foam Deep Creep to clean my smokeless powder guns and I haven't had any issue with it. The claim is it is much better than WD40. But back to my plastic spray on. If you can totally cover a piece with a thin layer of plastic in theory that would the best although it could not be used on moving parts.

That link wouldn't open for me.

I've switched over to FrogLube. Made the switch a couple of years ago and I flat love the stuff. Smells good, easy to work with and, per the results above which I had not seen, a very good product.

Thanks for the link to that article Wild Skies. I read a similar one years ago that used bare nails as the test medium and also came to the conclusion that good old Hoppes Gun Oil and plain old WD-40 were very good for general use and that RIG Gun Grease was excellent for long term storage. I've been using them with good results ever since. I find that regular WD-40 is excellent when used with 0000 steel wool for light rust removal and cleaning Damascus with a heavy enough patina (rust) to obscure the Damascus pattern. In fact, WD-40 will remove some of the blue on a fresh rust blue job and should be avoided there. I have used Thompson Center Natural Lube 1000 on the exterior of some guns because I figure anything that works so well to prevent after rust in my flintlock's bores has to be OK for plain old rain or snow. I am concerned about the anise scent spooking game on a hunting rifle though.

I was surprised the test left out RIG grease because he certainly covered most of the bases. Very good stuff for long term storage! The Hornady One Shot and Frog Lube sound like products I'd like to try. 46 products is a lot, but I understand because I have accumulated a very large amount of different penetrating oils trying to find something better than Cabot's Tasgon. Still looking.


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.

Just bought some FrogLube. My Cleansoil and Hoppes were close to empty, EEZOX is a pain to buy in Canada and Froglube is at a store not far away.

Everything rusts in my garage but I kept a set of tubes sprayed with Boeshield in there for 10 years without rust. I was surprised it did poorly in his tests. I'm using FrogLube now and it seems to be fine. Smells good too.
