Ive heard that term being used before re: GBBs, but to be honest, proper atomization of oil as a lubricant requires a lot more than the simple process of adding 5 drops of oil into the top of the propane tank every 8 mag refils or whatever AI reccomend.

For what we need it to do, you're just as well off spraying silicone directly on the O-rings themselves, where possible and in the gas reservoir of the mag.

In reality, atomization is more suited to high speed bearings where lubrication on a conventional basis, isnt really suitable.

Im not saying it doesnt work or is unsuitable, but its easier to give the necessary parts a good dose less often, than every where a smaller dose more often.

But each to their own.
