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.

Well, I will say one thing, its very cheap silicon oil. And not likely having the best manufacturing processes. Thus, will it destroy your AEG instantly. Probably not, is it the best on the market. No.


As for me, Ive been lurking. But Now that Im getting corrective knee surgury I should be able to get back into the game. (with my wife's endorsement) in the next few months (hopefully by June/July, depending on how my rehab goes)
