I couldn't find an MSDS for their products, so I couldn't say for sure. Based on their description at their website, it sounds like a general purpose synthetic light oil, which should be okay. Synthetic air tool oil works too. You may be able to find some at your local hardware store. Any light oil will do as long as it's entirely synthetic. Make sure you check all the ingredients to make sure there's no solvents or petroleum additives.

Many of the Spyder sites recommend using Silicone RC oil.... not sure if it would work... need to pull an old bottle to check for petroleum additives.

Triflow is petroleum based penetrating oil with solvents. So it's basically the complete opposite of what you should be using.

Couldn't find specs on it, other than it's sold at Lowes. Read the package. If it's got no petroleum additives or solvents it should be fine.

Not sure about that. Bob or Ken should be able to tell you.

Lol. Did you not see the huge, public argument I got into with the guy who claims to manufacture Gold Cup a week or so ago?

Short answer: Gold Cup isn't synthetic. Use something that is.

Couldn't tell ya. If it isn't printed on the bottle or the manufacturer's website, you'd have to contact them directly to find out.

"Actually it's transmission fluid direct from Shell Oil without the coloring.
Synthetic air tool oil will work though.
Dan"

directly from dan aka lube is transmission fluid, I guess its synthetic because he also says that the synthetic air tool oil is fine as well.(obviously)

I apologize for necroing, but I didn't feel that new thread was necessary for a small question. I'm ordering an a1 fly pretty soon and I was wondering if I should oil/grease it before its first use. Or should it be good right out of the box?

basicaly it should be greased and lubed right out of the box. But you will see it once open the box. You should see grease on all threads and when open your rotor breech you can see if the ram has oil on it.

I have a question as well... leaving a gun for 3-5 months wothout using it, what's better - grease and lube it before storage or right after-before first use.. or maybe both cases?

Couple drops of good oil in the ASA, dry fire it 30 times without the barrel and you should be good to go.

etc, I would suggest giving it some oil before and after storage. It really can't hurt. It takes a minute of your time, a couple drops of oil, and a little hpa.

I'd recommend sticking to your normal maintenance schedule. If you're putting the gun into storage for a long time, muck it out when you go to use it again. You can often get by with just oiling when you pull it out of storage, but I'd recommend a full breakdown for greasing and oil service if it's been sitting for more than a few months.

what will using products like gold cup do to your gun just wear out seals faster ive always used dow 33 for grease but i have used gold cup in my angel a few times now guess that was a bad idea.

thank you, Doctor, now I feel better
btw why not using only Love juice oil and Molykote 33 light as it said in the official manual... I do use both and think they are ideal (may be not better than others but work perfect) for A's.

Synthetic oils have superior lubricating properties and are guaranteed not to casue any excess wear on seals. Some types of seals can be degraded by mineral oils, and all types will be degraded or damaged by solvents. So you should always be using synthetic oils and greases.

Love Juice and Dow 33 is dandy. Any combo of synthetic oil and synthetic grease is dandy.
