" high mileage".....That's good ! Sort of suits me personally.......Actually, I DRIVE vintage cars and surround myself with all things I can relate to(old!)......Like working in a "service" station in the 60's......Sons call me ANALOG man....This world's movin' too fast and I'm draggin' my feet........But they're MY feet!! Really now, you can't help but like airguns made of steel, firearms that use black-powder (or at least not newer than 1970,eh?) and cars with carburetors that you can just listen to and pinpoint issues.....Why give up what works, and works for you?................All these eco-freaks riding bicycles to save the earth, I love it!! ...More gas, I need to buy more gas, ahh, get there quick, get there dry..........Thanks. Thumper ( "high mileage", God I love it !!!...bring it on!!)

I have straight weight 30 non-detergent for use in air compressor crankcases. If that's all it is, then I wasted my money. There is some value though in using something you know will work, and if the Crosman pellgun oil is good on C02 seals, then its worth it as it should last a long time.


30wt non detergent is most comman use is summer time for lawnmowers and lawn tractors you usually get 2 choices summer oils sae 30 non detergent, winter use 5w 30 5w 40 and i have seen 5w 20 most comman are the 2 but there are 3 grades total for small engine stuff for the winter time, personaly in my own stuff i use the 30w all year round even in my snow blower, my gear box for my lathe i use 30w non detergent all the time i have 4 choices for my dirt bikes as its tempature dependent gota love hondas and honda clone engines.
but the airgun stuff i use only 30w non detergent just cause i know it works and my seals will last way longer that way, any time i have use crosman pellgun oil in airguns i have had nothing but problems with seals leaking after a few years sometimes less , there is something to be said about companys that want to fix your guns alot if you get the drift,if they want it to break they will tell you only use their oil in the gun bla bla bla bla ,

in recent news the lastest airgun scam check out my video on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5J9RYG2AHk iam not trying to hijack this thread at all but its a good prim example how we are getting screwed over..you will also see in the info tab i added in another airgun for the list after i did this video

Anyone here know if using Crosman Silicon Spring Cylinder oil for Co2 guns is OK?
I'm looking for the best lube for preserving the seals.
Thanks, Don

the smiple answer to that is no its not good for pumpers or CO2 guns , its designed onlu for use on springers

your choices are crosman pellgun oil which i personly dont like, my first choice is 30wt non detergent motor oil, there are also alot of guys that say air tool oil is ok and they have not had any issues but i never tried air tool oil my self so i cant answer that as being fact or not.. i have heard of some guys also using tansmission oil but i would not. but hey thats me i like my guns functioning..

if in doubt cause of so many answers then just go with crosman pellgun oil,

most daisy guns like the red ryder models for example use 30wt non detergent they are a springer/air system gun from daisy but that is what is supposed to be used in them any thing else is not good for them at all..

you will find not all airguns can use the same oils and if you use sometihng thats not designed for it then you can have issues , and lets also put it in another prespective on the scam side, they do purpusly use certian oils and say to only use them but funny thing is i find when usuing crosman pellgun oil in crosmna guns the seals dont last near as long, but when i use 30wt non detergent then the seals last 3 to 4 times or more longer ummmmmmm makes you think a bit dont it,

but what ever you do dont ever use wd 40 in any airgun or even get the stuff near any airgun or il gaurntee your asking for trouble with that crap and never use firearm oils on airguns..oh and PS no 3in1 oil either,

now you can belive what ever you like its upto you..

have a great day and happy airgunning

Seems a lot a people use different stuff, I heard some good comments on this http://www.3inone.com/products/motor-oil/ it's made by the same company that makes 3in1 and WD-40 but it's motor oil and won't ignite when compressed.
Some blend their own stuff like famous Whiscombe Honey http://www.pyramydair.com/blog/2008/02/how-to-lubricate-pellets.html
Snake oil or good stuff? How to you know who's telling the truth?
Only one sure way to find out.

Nobody really knows what Pellgunoil Oil really is. The secrete is concealed like Colonel Sanders chicken recipe. What we do know is that it gums up over time which sounds like a flaw in design especially for something that’s been around for so long and recommended for most Airguns. It also may contain a conditioner and resembles 30W (non detergent) engine oil.

I have only used Hoppe’s firearm lubricating oil on everything that can be lubed. Seals, metal, plastic, wood and powerlets. 10 years and have never had a problem. I own Pellgunoil oil but never opened it because I wasn’t sure what red oil that looked like transmission fluid would do to the internals long term. Gum is for chewing on not for Airguns.

I don’t recommend it as it’s still a long term experiment for me. I have seen o-ring seal vs various oil experiments on YouTube I recommend checking out. I have recently discovered an article on using transmission stop leak on Airguns that discharge air over a 24hr period worth checking out as well. https://www.oshoot.ca/en/blog/post/4-a- ... -guns.html

Any of the alternative choices for lubricants I’ve read about seem better than Pellgun oil. Try taking some seals and placing them in different oils and see the long term results. Eventually somebody will let us know what the best oil is for conditioning and preserving our seals.

Happy Airgunning.

Did you actually read what was written or just the title? Crosman MSDS says it's MONOLEC 8430 GFS ENGINE OIL. You can't know more about the product unless you have the actual recipe from Monolec...
