  • Alan from USA asked:

    Can I use this on the O rings for my fill probe?

  • Robert from USA asked:

    can this be used to clean the inside of your barrels?

    • TunnelEngineer from USA:

      Yes. Widely used for that purpose for firearms and airguns.

  • Alan from USA asked:

    Is this oil intended for hinges and other pivot points in break barrels? If not, which oil is appropriate? Thanks

    • David from USA:

      Do NOT use silicone lube on metal-to-metal interfaces. Silicone lubricant increases galling (pitting/removal of metal/etc.) when the metal rubs together. Silicone is only recommended for metal to plastic, metal to rubber, metal to orings, etc.

    • Greg (PA SALES) from USA:

      Its an all purpose oil good for wiping down your guns. I would use more of a grease on the hinges like silicon oil or the molly paste ( Air Venturi Moly Metal-to-Metal Paste,...)

  • Michael from USA asked:

    What is recommended as a close substitute of this product for those of us who live in the Golden State of Environmental Regulators (a.k.a. "California")???

    • Steve from USA:

      You can buy Ballistol in California, No Problem

    • Chevota from USA:

      It's not allowed in Calif? Well, I've never used this stuff, but the similar products I do use are Break-Free CLP and MP-5 oil. Other lubes I use for guns are; syn motor oil, bearing grease, trans fluid, and Tungsten Disulfide powder. For stripping parts clean of all oils I use carb/brake cleaner or hot water/dishsoap. What of all those lubes goes where in another story, and depends on the gun. They're saying the Ballistol is good on wood, but people say it stinks so why would I want that soaked into my stock?

    • Tyler from USA:

      For cleaning your barrels, take a look at Hoppe's. Just be sure not to get it on any of your seals.

  • RifledDNA from USA asked:

    It says extremely flammable, why is it recommended for a springer? People are gonna lube their compression tubes and pistons and have damaging detonations.. its even more dangerous to use flammable lubricants in a pcp...... is this only for exterior applications? It should say something about this.

    • Richard from USA:

      The propellant is flammable. Not the lubricant. After being sprayed on a surface and allowed to air dry the propellant evaporates leaving a non flammable lubricant behind.

    • Chevota from USA:

      I doubt it's not flammable and will not diesel, but maybe someone can chime in? I'd test it in the chamber if I had it, but so far everything I've tried diesels, but how violently is the question. Either way I think this primarily an exterior rust protectant.

    • RifledDNA from USA:

      Ok nevermind, the oils are inert and non-flammable, its the propane propellent that is why it says that. Looked up the MSDS, Seems like good stuff.
