hey, another dumb question but, my gun oil isnt very liquidy... yea... its actually really thick, and when people say put a few "drops" into something, its too thick and i cant really get it drop by drop. Its viewloader gun oil and i was wondering if i should get a new thing of gun oil. Its glue like thick, and cant get it drop by drop, is tthat a prob?

well, as long as its still like a lubricant, and not like a pasty sticky substance, it should work. just smear it on this o-rings. but i use gold cup, easily drop by drop kind of lube.

if your oil is that thick, it's probably not helping much. I'd say get a new bottle

my extreme rage gun oil is fairly thick, kinda like olive oil. i guess yours might be old? lol don't really know, i know they make oil a little thick instead of thin like water so it will stay.

glue thick? jeeze maybe it IS glue...umm if ur gonna replace it i'd do some testing. like try putting about 5 drops in some water (extremely little amounts of water!) and see if it loosens up, just experimental. (probably drops of water to oil is gonna be 2:3 water to oil drops) but have fun since im guessing ur gonna get some new oil

They make several types of gun grease now. They are grease not oil, but they work the same except the grease stays put.

key word was experimental.

i would spread it using a cue-tip. see if that helps, it wont change the thickness of it, but it will be easyer to spread on the gun, making sure it doest drop in those unwanted places
