Does this stuff work on airguns? They're made of the same metal materials so I don't see why not.

It depends what airguns you have in mind. If you mean airgun rifles that are made of steel then that stuff may be useful as long as you don’t put it on the breech seal because it could be dissolved. Anyways I personally use Ballistol oil that is absolutely benign for seals for all my steel rifles.
Nearly all repeater CO2 air pistols are made of zinc-aluminum or aluminum alloys so they don’t rust in the first place and any anti rust gun oil is useless for them.
The Crosman 2240 has a steel barrel and pressure tube so you can use it there.
The only full steel repeater CO2 pistol is the Baikal MP654K which you most likely don’t have anyways.

To answer your PM the product site does say NOT to use it on plated metals.

If you are ever coming to TO let me know and I will send you the details on where to pickup in person.
