I use 25wt 100% pure silicone oil on almost all parts. GBB's and AEG's. You can even use heavier weight like 75wt. The silly oil that comes with the AI propane adapter is lighter and I tend to use that more in mags. On occasion, I'll use dabs of white lithium grease in mechbox's.
25wt silicone oil for most parts and AI silicone oil (1.5wt according to their site) for the mags. Got it. Thanks for all your helpful answers!
One last question: where do you get 25wt silicone oil? Most retail sites I've seen sell the AI silicone oil and other lighter weight oils.
