Airsoft Innov. GBB oil

Is the GBB oil that comes with the airsoft innovation's propane adapter silicon oil and I would be able to lube my gun?

The AI Propane adapter oil is lightweight and good for lubricating o-rings and other small/lightweight moving parts.
For heavier parts, like the contact points between a pistols slide and frame, or the bolt in a GBB rifle, you would be better off with a heavier weight of silicone oil (basically heavier weights are more viscous, also known as AI Tornado grenade oil) or white grease.

Just to add to ap, I would like to vouch for permatex synthetic lube. You can find the stuff at crappy tire for about 6 bucks, and it is great for things like the rails on a pistol or anything that has metal to metal contact. Its also safe for plastics. However I wouldnt use it for blowback chambers, but a thin coat in a guns trigger group works like a charm.

Seeing as we're talking about lube, I gotta recommend SuperLube. MULTIpurpose lubricant with PTFE... great more any moving parts ; D

Damn I love talking about Superlube lol

Viscosity is the ability of a substance to flow, so grease is less viscous, not more.


On another note, I find that graphite lube is awesome for GBB slides.

I think you should read more into that ....
"In everyday terms (and for fluids only), viscosity is "thickness" or "internal friction". Thus, water is "thin", having a lower viscosity, while honey is "thick", having a higher viscosity. Put simply, the less viscous the fluid is, the greater its ease of movement (fluidity)"

What would be best for lubing the internals on an assault rifle?

If its metal on metal contact the superlube we are talking about works great. Silicone oil works too but I found that it doesnt stay on as long as the lube. It can run off or be flung off with a few mag dumps.

I had a WE g36 and after 5 mag dumps a lot of the silicone oil had come off.
