I saw a post recently that mentioned this, what product is it (CTire?) and in the dark art of airgun lubrication, what is it good for?
My recently reassembled HW77 squeaks when I cock it so maybe a squirt of this down the loading port cover might be the sort of thing to remedy it without introducing oil down it or having to take it apart again.

It is a lubricating agent suspended in a carrier that evaporates away, leaving the film of lube on the surface.

Incredibly handy for tight areas or areas that need lubrication but are a real pain to completely disassemble.

Keep it away from chambers, the aerosol carrier agent is flammable \ explosive.

I use tons of the Remington stuff. Cabela's or Canadian Tire has it.

So I guess you missed a spot when lubing it for reassembly? So far I've no luck with teflon sprays, and from experience I'd say it will not work well and only last a short time, and I'd certainly not try that experiment on a nice gun. I'd use some real lube and maybe some real dry lube. I spoze I'd take it apart and start over but up to you.
