Some people will tell you not to use it because the propellant is a hydrocarbon. Ignore them. they are stupid.
Holy smokes, dude. Where have you been? LOL

When I first started getting more serious with airsoft, I used the Canadian Tire spray silicone oil on a classic airsoft gun. It destroyed the plastics and rubbers in it. Literally, 2 weeks later, the plastic took on a sheen (as if it were melting), and it cracked in several spots after shooting a couple of shots through it. This was after 4 years of owning it with no problems. The loading rubber also swelled, and now BBs don't load properly.
