Do not use RMCOIL or any other lube in gas rams or springers, it will detonate, causing damage to your piston seal.
Guys this stuff is supposed to be 100% silicone based designed specifically for springer air rifles. They have changed the name to Silicone Chamber Oil:http://www.crosman.com/gear/care/RMCOILThe manual for the Titan states that you have to use it in order to maintain optimum operating power. So are you telling me that Crosman is recommending a product that is dangerous when used as they recommend?Added from Crosman manual:"7. Maintaining Your Airgun• Periodically tighten all stock fasteners• Check and tighten scope mounts if applicable• To ensure that your air rifle maintains uniform power, it is important thatyou apply a drop of Crosman RMCOIL every few hundred shots into thecompression chamber. (Fig. The external metal parts should be cleanedwith a cloth that has RMCOIL on it."Andrew
Hey... don't argue with him.. This has been common knowledge for years within the realm of springer airguns. There is a big difference between dieseling and detonation and detonation caused by using any oil or getting any lubricant into the compression chamber and is extremely hard on the guns spring and seal as well as the scope. But let him go ahead and do as he pleases and suffer the consequences and pay the price. He will then learn just as many others in the past have. I just don't have a lot of patience with people that want to argue the logic of years of experience and thousands of airgun enthusiasts and tuning professionals. And there is no lube that you can stuff into the gun to lube the seal properly... period... If the seal needs to be lubed then the gun should be torn down and properly tuned and lubed. And another thing. Silicone, used for anything other than seating and assembly for the seal, is one of the worse things you can use to lube the seal.Guess I said more than enough.CDT
