which is a better non toxic clp
weapons shield or ballistol
Ballistol isn't non-toxic - i think it states it, but the contents are separately listed as toxic, it's petro based....
I think you also have to use it regularly, it's a little thin. Weaponshield i *think* has shown poor longevity as a barrier protectant in tests.
"Non toxic" is a scam and has been since the 50's. They've been playing that card via advertisements from before my father was a kid.
The body can put up with a tremendous amount of both acute and chronic exposure.
That being said, Ballistol among others.
Weapon Shield CLP MSDS
EEZOX Premium Gun Care MSDS
Break Free CLP MSDS
Hoppe's No. 9 MSDS
MIL-C-372B;RIFLE BORE CLEANER MSDS
weapon lubricating oil (LSA) MSDS
G96 Synthetic CLP Gun Oil MSDS

I think the least toxic is Ballistol
I have almost bathed in Hoppes #9 for 60+ years..... Maybe that explains some things LOL
People say I look young for my age, but my hands....... They look and feel like a man of 1oo!
When I shake hands I'm always surprised when some guys hands are soft and uncallused. Like a woman.
Years of gasoline, diesel, grease, brake fluids, adhesives, solvents you name it! Too late for me to worry about absorbing a little toxin into my body at this stage.
You younger guys might want to think about it.
I think you mean, FrogLube is?
Only two choices to vote, chose Ballistol.
My post #4 was to list MSDS for all gun stuff I could think of.
Frog Lube is impressive for it's benign MSDS, but I don't use it.
Hoppe's No. 9
For black powder guns I use warm water with liquid dish soap
Leave out in the sun till dry. No Sun, put in oven at lowest set-point till dry.
Is there a reason you don't use froglube? I've never tried it myself so was wondering. I've been a big fan of MPro-7 for quite a few years. Good stuff and great customer service!
I love my WeaponShield
thanks for all the input maybe I will order a small bottle of WeaponShield to try
I love Froglube. Plus my wife likes the smell in the house. Check this link. http://forums.outdoorsdirectory.com...evaluation?s=cc818434fccdc172af0f8e66de3fafd7
Haven't used Froglube because What I use works for me.
EEZOX New on the market- trying it out.
Hoppe's No. 9 Used for 40+years, and Dad before me. Cuts copper bore fouling, turns it to green sludge.
Break-Free CLP Younger jarheads swear by it. Use it for all-purpose...
Mil LSA LSA and RBC are what I was told to use back in the day, Gunny knew best.
3-in-1 oil Lightweight machine lubricant, works everywhere.
WD-40 I use it to hose-out gunk in outta-the-way places.
Lead wipe-away No longer available, still have a couple sheets. Cut into patch size, swab the bore, turns lead into grey paste. Set the gun away for a few weeks, then view the bore. "Wires" of lead springing away from grooves. Cleaned my Ruger Blackhawk .45LC bowling pin gun barrel to like new! Sure worked nice!
I used RBC and LSA at first when in the Army, then BreakFree CLP came into the inventory in the mid/late 80's and we used that exclusively.
Used it in the Latin American jungles, and all over the European theater, never looked back.
Froglubealltheguns!! It smells pretty and is magic. My roomates love when I clean my guns haha
just for info fisherman's marine in delta park is stocking ballistol on the shelf now,
Gunwerkz clp is probably the least toxic but is only slightly better than average in effectiveness.
The Froglube sure smells good, but "thickens" after awhile. So much so that it was the root cause to my FTF's in my 1911's. It took me a little while to figure that out, but when I stripped that crap off my guns and went back to Ballistol, my guns started loving me again and ran right.
Excess Froglube is supposed to be wiped off. How can that "thicken" after awhile?
