Recommended Oil for AR-15 Rifle

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.

Froglube System Kit

One great firearm maintenance kit happens to be the Froglube System Kit or better known as the Froglube Frogtube Kit.

The Froglube system kit includes Froglube CLP liquid, Froglube CLP paste, Froglube Solvent, application Q-Tips, a lint-free cleaning cloth and handy plastic screw case. This compact system kit makes it easy to take it anywhere because it’s small and takes up very little space. I keep one in my gun range bag and one in my car trunk.
