    Very interesting indeed. Any one know where you can buy WD40 specialist corrosion inhibitor? Or frog lube?

    Frog lube? Sounds dodgy as
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    I use frog lube all the time on my "smaller" barrels ..... seems to make them easier to clean ...smells nice , I need to go over the AR with it , I use a heat gun to open the pores of the metal and wipe frog semen all over it , ... you sure as shit cant dispute the anti corrosion properties of the stuff looking at that article ..... as for the wd special sauce , I may check out places like BNT or more specialised places .... not repco

    Just read on TFB that Frog Lube is pretty much coconut oil with a few additives to keep it from solidifying in cooler temps. Who woulda thunk it

    Did a similar experiment 40 odd years ago and found the very best rust inhibiter was lanolin. My experiment wasnt as detailed or with as many products but with sheet iron coated with a variety of products including WD40 and dipped in the tide at Titahi Bay beach every second day, the lanolin/white spirits mix was without peer. Also makes a brilliant case lube . Used to be able to buy lanolin without any difficulty. Havent seen it around lately.
    somewhere in my files (ahem)I have a formula for a powder solvent and gun lube from Frankford Arsenal dated 1800's which includes amoungst many other exotics lanolin at 5% that claims to prevent rust in black powder bores ,cannons etc. I made a batch up many years ago and found it worked very well. Sometimes the old stuff is just fine. I did note however that in a 22 unless you really cleaned up all traces of it from the bore it took about 40 rounds for the bore to condition.

    Lanolin now impossible to purchase. I spoke w several wool scourers. All product either exported or immediately reprocessed here. Lanolin is a trendy skin care product and has been tied up. Grrrrrr
