Rancid Crabtree's excellent post comparing different products for firearm lubrication and corrosion protection has really got me thinkin about trying Froglube. I've read other posts on other sites where some people are having problems with Froglube migrating into trigger groups etc. and gumming up causing problems in cold weather.
I could attribute their problems to consumers not following the manufacturers instructions as they specifically state to essentially wipe it all off the gun leaving a very thin film behind and in the pores of the metal to protect the surface. However, since the product is biodegradable it should degrade over time.
If it degrades, I would assume its protective properties also degrade? If so, what's the point of using it, as all short term use eventually becomes long term use resulting in degradation unless you strip it from the metal periodically and start over.
Have any of you been using it? If so, how has it performed up here in Alaska?
How have you been applying it when you don't have access to a heat gun in hunting camp and the daily temps are well below what the manufacturer recommends for heating the metal?
Any info you can share will be greatly appreciated.
