    All great and valid responses and advice here. As a few have mentioned, it really doesn't matter; 6-7 drops of the lubricant of your choice in the places outlined in the manual and absolutely NOTHING in the Firing Pin Channel or on the Firing Pin! I use Ballistol for barrel and bore cleaning and Breakfree CLP for lubricant. It's worked wonderfully for a decade in many Glocks. Welcome to the forum!

    Hi Sir, don't know if you're still out there. I've learned that special boutique lubricants and solvent are unnecessary for the casual shooter. I suspect you will learn the same over time.

    I've tried many. Some that are mentioned here. This is what I use and it serve me well.

    Mineral Spirits for soaking. The scent free, milky stuff.
    Medicinal Grade Mineral Oil for lubrication. The key here is a very light film application.
    All of my firearms function flawlessly.
    If you feel better using the boutique stuff, no worries.
    Use what you like, but any advantage is irrelevant to the average shooter. Hope I've shed some light.

    Hello all, I'm here to engage in polite and respectful conversation. Just left a very nasty forum where they like to TALK about GLOCK.

    Hi guys, thank you very much for your recommendations. So far I have fired 140 shots from my Glock 17C and did a field strip. As I was still scared to use FrogLube, I used WD40 to clean the rails and barrel. Then oiled the barrel and rails with Hoppe's No. 9 Lubricant (just small drops as seen on youtube). I hope WD40 doesn't ruin my Glock.

    A week after I cleaned my firearm, I went to a gun store to pick up some stuff an I was told that FrogLube works fine here in the Philippines as we are in a tropical country. So no worries on gunk and stuff. Just apply it, no hair drier required according to them. I still haven't tried it yet.

    The worst that WD40 can do is gather dust and dander and gum up, don't think it can physically harm the weapon.

    I did the FL and hair dryer once or twice, turned into a hassle for me as opposed to using petroleum based oils.

    Remember you can not mix Froglube and standard oils, make sure the weapon is cleaned before applying it and vise versa when going the other way.

    So I cannot use FrogLube CLP to clean the gun then Hoppe's No. 9 Lubricant right after?

    No, they don’t mix. If you decide to go Froglube you should not use any oil based products with it.

    Glock pistols are not picky and are extremely rust resistant. So any gun oil will work if you decide you don’t want to mess with Froglube.

    I like a foaming bore cleaner (don’t have a favorite at the moment) and I am currently using Lucas Extreme Gun oil for lubricant which I really like.

    Okay, this is noted. Good thing I held-off in using FrogLube. I guess i'll go and get Hoppe's No. 9 Gun Bore Cleaner to ensure that it is compatible with the Hoppe's No. 9 Lubricant that I have. Too bad I can't find Hoppe's CLP in my location.

    Will Hoppe's o. 9 Gun Bore Cleaner be enough to protect my firearm compared to CLP?

    How about Ballistol? Does it function like CLP? Can I use it with Hoppe's No. 9 Lubricant?

    I use Hoppe's foaming bore cleaner in the barrel and Ballistol for the entire firearm. I have used Breakfree, Military grade cleaner, FrogLube and others. FrogLube gets a bad rap most of the time from people that do not use it correctly. I met Captain Lansky the inventor of FrogLube. He stressed if you heat the firearm with a hairdryer, oven or let it just sit in the sun to get rather warm and then coat the firearm with FrogLube ...let it sit for an hour and then clean it out and off, the gun is "seasoned" and no buildup will develop. So many people just gob it on the firearm and then then reassemble it. This is especially bad in the northern states in the winter it just gunks up and creates a mess.

    Hi GRU7_Mech_ret, I am located in the Philippines and it's tropical here. Most of the time we get temperatures around 38 degrees Celsius. I wan't aware though that FrogLube involves heating and waiting and stuff like that. I might end up using Hoppe's and Ballistol since it's more convenient.

    Is it okay to use Ballistol to clean and finish up with Hoppe's Lubricant for the rails and Barrel (outside)?

    Sorry guys, I really have zero knowledge on all of this and have been getting conflicting advice regarding the use of FrogLube from where I am at.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Yes, this combination works well. Ballistol to clean the inside of the barrel. A dry toothbrush/rag to brush/wipe the rest of the gun off and Hoppes Lubricant on the lubrication points.
