From my understanding, gun oil is made for dissolving powder residue. I would use it for airguns just in case it does harm seals.

G96 is specifically formulated for powderburners. It is absolutely unsafe for airguns in particular for their rubber seals. It dissolves them and makes them a chewing gum. I made experiments. It is O.K. for cleaning slightly rusted steel surfaces but nothing else.
If you want a multipurpose gun cleaner which is absolutely safe for airguns or whatever gun, removes rust and preserves steel surfaces from rusting buy Ballistol (Ballistol.ca). You can also use it on any household machinery. It’s not harmful to your health in any way.

Using it on the metal surface is fine. The problem arises when the oil makes its way to the seals. I wouldn't suggest using it again due to the risks.
