Hoppes Dri-Lube is designed for maximum lubrication but without a sticky or wet texture. Most oils, lubricants and CLP’s remain wet after they are applied and can attract dirt and other debris not to mention fouling.
Hoppes Dri-Lube sprays on wet and dries quickly to provide a slick, dry film. It reduces friction on metal and bearing surfaces without a sticky residue. Dust and dirt will fall off or blow away.
Dri-Lube comes in a 4 oz aerosol spray can.
Froglube now has a gun oil….Froglube Extreme Oil.
Froglube Extreme oil is designed more towards lubricating than cleaning and it does this very well. It’s temperature range is broader than the CLP…-44 F to 125 F. If your guns are subject to extreme cold or heat then you might want to take a closer look at this product.
Here are the benefits of Froglube Extreme Oil over Froglube CLP
- Remains viscous at -40 F

What is the recommended oil for the AR-15 Rifle?
Gun manufacturers do not recommend any name brand oil for use on their guns. For obvious reasons.
I have owned 3 AR-15’s, a Stag Arms Model 2T, a Smith & Wesson M&P15 and a Bushmaster. I never had 1 failure in any one of these rifles. I used several oils on them including BreakFree CLP, M-Pro 7 LPX and Froglube CLP.
All of these products are excellent lubricants for the AR-15 however I would highly recommend Froglube CLP over the other 2 because Froglube CLP dries after being applied and will not attract dirt and fouling. It is amazingly slippery after applied and is dry to the touch and is NON-TOXIC. I believe that Froglube CLP will outlast the lubricity of the other 2 at some point. I have never tested this but I have shot 1,000 rounds out of the Stag Arms 2T without a break for lubrication. It was treated with Froglube CLP.
