frog lube on lil' pistols

This is where we can talk about our guns. I'd particularly like to see reviews and range reports of your guns, especially if it is a model that others may not be familiar with.

Let us know if you like it Carload9. Personally I'm not sold on the various "specialty" lubricants out there. I use whatever spare motor oil is in the garage. Currently running the Wal-Mart brand of high mileage 5W-30.

Well, let's see. Back in the dark ages when I was a member of Uncle Sam's Flying Club, we were trained "If it slides, grease it, if it rotates, oil it, if it walks around looking smug, salute it. I still do the first two. Oh, and the last one gets the bird salute.

G1, i am not making my last transmission on frog lube. I have put 2 days/nites in on researching frog lube on a new, sometimes different pistol to break in. The tcp. It has run like a colt after snorting around it spit out 150 reloads this evening at world famous jim's pawn shops indoor range.

This frog lube stuff may have some promise, the cleanest i have ever seen any pistol by far. I dont have a final decision! Let ye all know that but it took over lil' pistol and made it "satin smooth". I also studied under 2x microscope after i got home/ no wear/no complaints from me so i seasoned it for the second time tonite. They say third time seasoning is the charm. Very easy to clean up. Now when seasoning with the mint smelling stuff you have to wait for dry time of 1 hour.

Tonite:
coated 500
sized 500
washed 900 380acp/brass
reloaded 100 380acp
seasoned tcp
Slung snap caps a while to my amazement of rolls-royce type feel in lil' tcp.
As of now, have left Lcp with eel snot, but did F.L. my sig 938 which is also rolls-royce feel after just recieving it back from NH with all free updates over last 15 months by them all for free.
I may frog lube LCP & XDS45 @ later date.

Is this something you were notified about? Is there a S/N break point on which guns need to be upgraded? I have looked at the Sig site, and even talked to Sig regarding an extinguished Sig Light front sight and nothing was mentioned to me regarding these upgrades.

I got mine up north about a year ago before I moved down here. It was <$600 with my discount. I worked part time at a small LGS up there. I really enjoy my P938. It and my P238 serve as my EDC much of the time in the summer. I switch over to a larger caliber in the fall and winter months depending on how I have to dress.

I carry two sometimes but always TCP or LCP on "mic holster", mexican style. I like 938 OWB, but when i get custom kydex holster (my buddy brent down the street) for LCP/TCP I will carry it sometimes IWB small of the back. I have bad lower back, that metal seems to help in that area.

You gather i am a nut for micro 380's. Also underdog companies, but i loose money. Lost a pile of money with keltec P3AT's and diamondback db9. The ruger lcp is a rock. My recent gamble has turned out great with the taurus tcp/380. Appears to be great pistol, jury still out. My opinion of tcp is to fully tear down and polish to fine buff up to 6000 sand paper by hand watching tv. Then with all the pieces layin there,, coat em with frog lube & let season for 1 hour then wipe down and re-assemble around 15 parts, whos counting. Wow, the thing was totally different. IMO, its a kit pistol till you do below. But know thats just me. They can run good without.
