Abbey Silicone Gun Oil 35 is a high quality silicone lubricant for the seals and internals of air guns. It also produces a fine high sheen finish on all guns and accessories that protects from moisture and dirt, eliminating rusting and corrosion.
It is especially important to put a very slight smear of silicone on the end of the neck of a CO2 capsule when you fit a new one, as this is where it comes into contact with the the seal and will help to retain its full sealing properties.
It is highly water repellent to prevent rain and water attaching to your gun. Just like a well polished car rainwater beads and runs off. This prevents rusting and corrosion even while you are shooting in the worse of weathers.
Abbey Silicone Gun Oil 35 has a couple of major advantages over mineral oils. It is not harmful to wood; mineral oil penetrates and softens wood. The joint between stock and lock can become weak over time. Abbey Silicone Gun Oil 35 prevents this happening and can be used all over the gun. Keep clear of chequering though as the silicone is slippery!
Abbey Silicone Gun Oil 35 does not evaporate like mineral oils so you keep an oily film for much longer. At the end of the season give a quick application and the guns will be protected until you need them again.
Fingerprints can be a major problem, especially where fingers touch the barrels. The acids within the skin attack the barrels and cause pitting, allowing rust to form. Application of Abbey Silicone Gun Oil 35 prevents fingerprints and stops pitting from starting.
