What kind of oil/lube to use in a slavia 624 with a leather piston seal? is moly compatible with those seals? will it damage it? and also since i know he won't be shooting the gun often lets say twice a year maybe. should i tell him to put a couple drops of oil in the chamber to keep the seal in good condition?

Note: this is for the slavia rebuild i'm doing, i'm not finished yet but i want to ask the question before so that when everything is ready i can put it back together with the right lubing. 8)

silicone oil.

edit: DO NOT use grease on leather. Oil allows it to be pliable. Grease makes it a gob.

Do not use aerosols either. You want pure silicone oil to the best of my knowledge.

That is a low powered springer so you could try any oil I suppose? other springer guys please comment :)

for leather seals, Mr Gaylord recommends silicone oil, like Crosman RMcoil, available on line, from either airgun vendors, or even amazon

Walter is quite right, Moly is not recommended in this case, here's a link....quick read

Cheap source of silicone oil is from a hobby store, silicone rc shock oil. If you
You can get it on e-bay... but shipping cost is ridiculous:

I've seen the low viscosity 5 to 15 weight recommended for leather seals.

Alright! ill have a look at the local canadiantires, sail, and Pro Nature shops around here to see if they have any of this so i'll save on shipping and won't have to wait

Edit: That RC shock bottle costs way less and has alot more! i think ill have a look at some of the hobby shops also :)

Sillycone is not your only product for leather. Boot protectants with silicone beeswax and mink oil will all work to soften and rejuvenate a leather seal old or new. For the paste type warm the exit port area with a hair blower same with the paste to liquid form. Few droplets at a time into the port while slowly creating suction upon the piston to draw it into the pressure chamber. Keep the area where the leather seal is warm. This will allow the leather to draw in more liquid. Stand it near the heat register over night.

Virgin olive oil is another product that will work for low powered guns.
Vegtable oils, cereal grain oils and most animal oils will diesel or combust under the right circumstance.

Dont recall dieseling from olive oil. Mind you thats 40yrs ago. When I fould out 3in1 oil was a bad idea. Blew up a spring. Dads suggestion.bad bad idea.
My mom gave e a few drops of olive oil anytime I needed it, worked upon Slavia 624, 618, 630 and my Tellys back in day.

For a 624, you can use just about any oil. Higher power guns you need to worry about dieseling, but not the 624.
