Hey guys how are you? I play at a field in SOCAL and it has its own pro shop. I bought my ATP yesterday from their shop and the owner lubed up my gun for me he said that he used what is called "Frog lube" that is used on real guns usually but it's been working fantastic for lubing.. should i use his frog lube or just stick with  normal airsoft silicone spray?  thanks again. i really don't want any problems with this baby :) btw the gun is amazing

and heres a pic of the frog lube : http://www.google.co...r:11,s:47,i:201

Link is giving me some pictures of watches...?

Also, KWA advises to use 100% pure silicon oil and not the silicon spray because there is stuff in the spray that will eat at your plastics in the gun and other bad things... just saying.

It says:
"Non Toxic
Non Flammable
Petroleum Free
Biodegradable
People Safe
Safe on plastics/paints/urethane
Anti-oxidant
Anti-fungal
Prevents corrosion"

So if it's safe on plastics, paints, and metal, try it if you want, but don't go over board with it... if things fail... you're responsible... I say don't take the chance and either buy pure silicon oil, or try what Niko suggested: Super Lube Dry-Film Lubricant:

If all fails, sounds like you can just eat it................lol  No, don't eat it. :P
It sounds ok to use and I am sure there are better alternatives to silicone oil to lube your slide rails.

You can find pure silicon oil at an RC hobby shop or online. Try to find a silicon oil with wt of 15-25.

Agreed. There probably are more alternatives to silicon oil, like your super lube dry-film lubricant! I'm trying to score myself a bottle of that soon...

If you read the directions, Frog Lube needs to be "seasoned" into the metal surface. You can't just add it like you would a conventional lubricant. Further, it needs to be added to heated surfaces in order to react with the metal. So, more than likely, unless the guy that "added" it to your gun first stripped the gun down, heated all the parts, added the Frog Lube, then repeated the process, you don't have the protection and lubricity that you think you do.
