You mean the Frog Lube video?

It's supposedly a "CLP" ... "Cleaner Lubricant Protectant". I don't see it doing the "C" well in the video, (heck the guy recommends using something else too) so I doubt it does the other two letters any better.

Also, while yes people apply oil (sometimes grease for long term storage) inside a barrel, it will increase chamber pressures enough that you're told to remove any excessive lubricant first by most manufacturers and shooting manuals. A very light coating is fine, but running a dry patch before shooting is recommended.

It's like putting grease or oil on your car's transmission input shaft so the clutch disk moves "freely", sure it's a good idea, except it's not good for what is going on around it.

Think about how little oil is actually going down the barrel of a GBB from the 2 drops per 9 magazine fills, and then factor in how much it really is per shot. It's pretty tiny amount of oil that is recommended in a GBB.

Well it's suppose to soak into the metal, I wasn't just gonna leave it there chunky. Was thinking of applying on a heated barrel, cleaned off and repeated a few times so the metal is impregnated. Hoping this would make the surface very slick without decrease the diameter of the barrel.

No, you don't oil or grease inner barrels.

Another question for people using Froglube, are you guys heating up the metal too? GBBP has a lot of plastic so I'm worried about warping them.
I've cleaned my guns but again with the paste and got even more shit out, I left extra paste in the slide to let him spread itself out. Paste is flying out when I fire. Is it bad to leave some paste behind? I see you're suppose to wipe it clean after an hour of heat treatment but those are RS guns...

Edit: The purpose of heating it up is so the pores in the metal opens up and soaks up the Froglube. This allows the Froglube to come out again to lubricate your weapon as you fire it. However this only works on real steal as firing it causes heat, propane will do the opposite in airsoft guns...

+9000!

never grease or oil your inner barrel. the BBs stability is governed by the cushion of air behind it. any debris in the barrel or inconsistencies to the surface will disturb the cushion of air and cause the BB to destabilize. the BB doesn't touch the inner barrel as it travels down it, so it's pointless to make the inside of the barrel slick. it just needs to be clean, smooth and uniform.

I didn't think it would change anything, the stuff is suppose to soak into the metal. Thought it'd just be slick without causing any changes to the inner barrel. I didn't lube my inner barrel though based on suggestion by you homies.
