A quote from Edith (Tom Gaylord's partner) (headlines are mine)

The Advice
Put a drop or 2 of Pellgunoil on the tip of every CO2 cartridge before inserting it into the gun. This lubes your seals throughout the gun with every shot. You cannot overlube with Pellgunoil.

If your gun won't hold any CO2, then I suggest quickly inserting the lubed CO2 cartridge and dry-fire as many shots as you can before it all leaks out. Insert a second lubed CO2 cartridge and dry-fire it again. Usually, by the end of the 2nd lubed CO2 cartridge, you've fixed your gun! Airgun writer Tom Gaylord does this when he's found a gun that leaks. If it's not fixed by the end of the 2nd cartridge, then you need to have the seals replaced.

The Smile
Tom Gaylord buys non-working/leaking CO2 guns at a really low price from people who don't know their guns aren't really broken and then fixes them with the method I just explained. Pellgunoil is like the fountain of youth for CO2 guns!

Better still use 30wt non-detergent motor oil.

Better still...rather than pound a piece of debris into the valve seat causing more damage....take it apart and actually fix the problem. :roll:
