auto nine lost all power

I have a ksc aouto nine. after one day of use it has lost all power.
ive been using coleman propane for propelant, and gunk heavey duty silicone lubricant for lube. could the gunk have killed my seals?

i tryed to get pure liquid silicone and an adapter from gun gas solutions. they naver came so i got a diferent adaptor and tryed the gunk.

sorry if anyone is pissed that i posted in noobs , im still a noob and i cant post in doctor.

yup. although on my first day using it i forgot to lube it. it stoped holding gas so i opened it up , lubed it up nicely , and out it back together, crazy thign is the bottom seals seemed thicker somehow. i had great dificulty putting it back together, unlike the fisrt time i opened it up to see if the seals had locked from not haivng any gas in it for a month or so.

sounds like the lube. You actually want the lightest silicon lubricant you can find. You can find this for sale at Airsoft Innovations, or like i use, R/C car shock lube works great.

Heavy duty lube might be too thick and muck up the seals. Just my guess though.

It might not just mess up the seals, if it gets vaporized with the expansion of propane, it will get carried into the gun and tar up the inner workings of the GBB. I say strip the whole thing, clean it out, use a lighter silicone oil and see where you're at.

Go to an R/C shop and get silicone shock oil. Nothing heavier than 10 weight. Or go to Airsoft Innovations and buy their GBB oil. Do not use pellet gun oil on your gun as it can attack not only the seals, but the plastic as well.

airsoft innovations is outta the question. i ordered stuff from them and it never got to me and they wont refund my money or send it again.

ill try the shock oil.

so the crosman soft air nitro lubricant oil can damage my gun?

ive notices some of the plastic parts not doing so well since i used it but that could be soemthign else to.
