I was thinking of lubricating my ATP slide and whatnot with Gaurder MoS2 lubricant (http://www.airsoftat...oft-p/35870.htm) instead of silicon oil, but I'd like to see if I can get an opinion from the good folks at KWA (or anyone else knowledgeable) about whether or not this is a good idea before I try it. Any input?

I'm thinking it will be too thick/viscous for the slide.

Since that'd lead to nothing wiping the lubricant off couldn't fix, my curiosity led me to try the stuff out. After trying the gun lubed silicon oil and then trying it again with a thin coating of MoS2, I noticed no difference in performance between the two lubricants.
