What oil are you using for the piston and seals once the supplied webley oil is used up.

Maybe this is a stupid question but where do you buy the oil ? Or are talking about the red pellet gun oil ?

Why wouldn’t you? Pellgunoil is specially formulated for CO2 AND pump action airguns. I have a 30-year old Crosman 1322 (1981-82 model) which is still alive because I’ve been using Pellgunoil on it for the last 30 years. It really works!

Because I personally hate the sh!t, that's why. Take apart a gun that has used pellgun oil and sat for 30+ years and you will know why. Not going in my guns peroid. YMMV.

?????????
I have 44 mostly CO2 airguns and a few multipumps and I’ve been using Pellgunoil for all of them for long time and they work absolutely perfectly. Millions of airgunners around the world use Pellgunoil without problems. I don’t really know what you have in your mind. You can hate that product, that’s fine with me but it doesn’t mean that that product is like you say “sh!t”. This is just your personal opinion.

What type of guns do you have in mind? Pellgunoil is ONLY for CO2 and pump action airguns. Nothing else.

As I understand it by “breaker” you mean a breakbarrel airgun? Never ever use Pellgunoil in a breakbarrel airgun! If you really need to oil a breakbarrel airgun only use Crosman Silicon Chamber Oil (very sparsely 1-2 drops every 500-1000 shots). Like I said before Pellgunoil is only for CO2 and pump action airguns (the latter, for example, such as the Crosman 1322/1377)!

Alecto Lubrication update. I got a response email from Webley & Scott telling me that they do not recommend chamber oil in the Alecto they say to use Crosman Pelgun oil when the supplied Webley oil runs out.

Can't understand why they would recommend pellgunoil when the bottle is filled with mineral oil according to the owners manual. :roll:
