In the case of Co2 (and with Pelgun Oil) add a drop to the top of the 12gr Co2 cartridge before inserting it (put the drop where the piercing probe will stick into the cartridge). Most of it will go on that o-ring (which is what you want) and some of it will pass through the gun. Some brands of 12g cartridges also contain a small amount of lubricant in them (but you'd still want to use the pelgun oil).
Thank you very much! That is such a big help! Should I be putting any oil/lube on/in the barrel because of the slide causing so much friction?
