Shot some corrosive surplus ammo through my vz58 one day, and left it for a couple days.
Did the samething a couple years ago to an SKS, and ended up needing a 2x4 to the bolt carrier handle to open up the action again.
Yea, lots of surface rust. Humid area(I can see the ocean) and hot humid weather.
Anyways, the vz58, went to clean it, expecting the same result.
Nadda! Powder residue wiped right off. Nice.
Not sure if better metal used on the vz, or the froglube I cleaned the rifle with earlier, but in either case, the end was very good to see.

Interesting and a nice surprise! Would be very cool if Frog Lube coated and protected it. Anyone want to run an experiment?

Yep those sailor's loved how it stuck around in very salty seas. Just don't relay on it to work indefinitely. Eventually it will break down and the evil brown residue will resided once again in your favorite mil-surp ;)
Just don't ask how those frog men came up with the idea LOL!!!

We'll that does it. Been humming & hawing about this stuff and your little story just pushed me over the edge. Ordering a small bottle today, and giving it a shot.

I don't know why they change the taste and smell of FrogLube. Clearly it's made from Bacon cuz it makes miracles!

I've been using Froglube for the past year on everything I own. From my SKS, XCR ,VZ58, 870 and M14s. This stuff just works! I recommend it to anyone.
