Using silicone on orings such as the main one on the piston of ur gbb, makes for a good seal. Another good thing about silicone (light silicone) oil is that if your oring should decrease in size because of cold (I had a gbb and aeg orings decrease since I stored them in my basement were it is pretty cold) you can take the orings, soak them in the oil for a day or so, and they swell, providing for a good seal.

Get light silicone oil.

Ive used this before, gets good results:

OR just buy the AI silicone oil tube, itll last you long if u use it properly.


I'll edit, silicon oil was to use along a propane tank adapter, it was meant for the mags. I wanted to know if any type of silicon oil will do the job for that. The question about lubing the slide and any other part was something else, I did not meant to lube with that!


jig-a-loo is actually silicon oil??? lol! didn't know that!
