View Full Version : is it bad to use Rem Oil on a paintball gun?
03-27-2006, 04:42 PM
Rem Oil is a gun oil with teflon lubricant and made by Remington for guns.
Should I not use it on my gun? According to some guy at the Ariakon forums (having trouble with my overlord pistol :() said that gun oil is bad for paintball guns. Is this true or is he just blowing it out his poop chute?

Petroleum distillates and o-rings mix as well as drinking and driving.......not well at all. Both will turn the other into a gumby -

white litium grease can be obtained at home depot, its recommended for gargae doors, but is high quality and works well with paintball guns, dont use too much though.

white lith has petroleum distillates as well and it slows down the action of your marker cuz it's so thick. just get pb oil and be done with it. get a couple so you won't run out right away again.

hmm ... if none of the stores Dragon told you sells them... maybe try to get them online .. like AVI .. goldcup oil seems to work great ...

rem oil is designed to lubricate...and disolve gunpowder/residue as it lubes. I suggest you pay the $3 for the proper thing

I know my wal-mart doesn't have it. I picked some up at Dunham's Sports today when getting my tanks filled.

what about wd-40? is bad to use?
04-02-2006, 03:46 PM
yes. It will eat away o-rings. spend the money on some paintball specific oil.
04-02-2006, 04:36 PM
ok, so i should take my gun apart since i oiled it yesterday with wd-40 and whip off all the parts. should i replace all the o-rings? 2 of them are new, but the others are about a year old
04-02-2006, 05:56 PM
..... yeah you should probably replace all of them ... just buy pb oil !!!! ... easy as that ....
wd-40 wont damage o-rings that fast. i would replace the o-rings just because they are old
