Yeah I'm not to crazy about the stock either but I like it also, very accurate and hard hitter.

I'm not surprised at all.. I really don't know where that rule of "not using silicone on spring guns" came from.. I always thought it was BULLSH&T. 100% PURE silicone won't hurt a thing.. I've used it on all my spring guns over the years and have never had a failure from it, only failure i've had was from just wear and tear or faulty parts.

That's pretty good consistency.

How many tins have you put through it (roughly)?

-B.

That's what I think. But I really don't find it to be a very GOOD springer lube, even I have a few better on hand. Who started this "damage" thing anyway?

Petroleum distillates eat plastic and rubber.

Some silicone based spray oils contain petroleum distillates.

Install a Micro-GTX insert and you will have a 2 pound pull with no creep.

If you've got a Quest any version of it swap the stock into the Phantom, it's a perfect fit. And then just switch back and forth when needed. Unless thats not what your into I can understand that too :)



KM... :)

Well guys I guess Crosman has it all wrong then and wants us to purposely ruin our spring guns since their Spring Gun Oil IS Silicone.

There's a difference between Silicone "based" lubricants and "Pure" Silicone Lubricant.
