You can go to a local RC hobby shop and get yourself a silicone shock oil at 25-30Wt. That is what I use.

And this topic moved to appropriate section. Carry on. :gun:

I agree with niko_gpsy on the 25-30 wt silicone oil. I use that stuff on my GBBs as well as my AEGs (piston oring, cylinder, guide rails) with great success.
