I suspect, just like the fancy "knife sharpening oil" for 20 bucks a small bottle...it is red colored mineral oil....which can be purchased in any pharmacy for 10 bucks a half liter.

EDIT: Although I do use silicone spray , I always give it a day for the propellant to evap.

Also no need to pay completely ridiculous prices for "silicone compression chamber oil".....go to your nearest RC hobby shop and buy the exact same thing, sold as shock oil. Last time there I got a 4oz bottle for 15 bucks. Probably last the rest of my life.

I've heard others say it's transmission fluid, and others non detergent engine oil. You're right though, they stick it in a puny little bottle and charge $10 for it! Almost thievery

So no damage to rubber parts like O rings and seals?

None after a week anyway. Of course I use Viton o-rings

Anything that comes in an aerosol can is going to have a propellant and likely an entrained solvent (petroleum distillates)to reduce viscosity and make it sprayable. If a fellow sees the flammable warning on the can, it should be used only with caution.

Al

Since CFC's where banned in the 70's and further regulated by the Montreal protocol in1987 propellant in spray cans are now halocarbon gases (propane, butane, pentane,etc). Part of the gas is disolved in the liquid (ex: WD40) and will be released in a matter of minutes. Small amounts but sufficient to self ignite in a compression chamber...

The Flash Point of Pellgun oil is 218°c/425°f
Crosman MDSD can be found here: http://www.crosman.com/material-safety-data-sheets
As you will see Pellgun oil is actually SAE Grade 30 diesel engine oil from LE Lubricants http://products.lelubricants.com/item/a ... 50/8430-pl
Notice that it is also suitable for air compressors...

Hope this helps

If nothing else, this stuff sure makes the hammer slide nice! Seems way slipperier than pellgunoil!
