For oiling seals and the piston area of my airguns, I use "LIQUID FIRE" paintball oil from Wal-Mart. Seems to work great.

BTW, this is a silicone based oil, bought it for that reason.

Indeed a very touchy subject...
I also read a long time ago that silicone oil causes galling in the compression area on metal to metal contact areas but haven't heard anything recently,perhaps a good moly on the sides of the piston would counteract that if it was happening???Dunno

Lauchlin tried to drown his rifle in the stuff to prove his point, and after a few thousand rounds the piston seal looked better than when he started. 8)
