Lube for Gladiator regulator?

Mac Dev recommends silicone grease. But I'm having a hard time finding it. The only thing close is some silicone spray lube. I've also heard that you can use Dow 33 lube (Shocker Lube)? How about Lithium grease, what's the difference?

I have an Autococker, I've seen some people use the Dow 33 to lube their Autococker. What's the benifit? Where could I use it on my Autococker?

Anything expensive...

DOW 33 will work in a galdiator. I use DOW 33 in my cocker. Works great and don't have any problems. Good thing is that it stays put and doesn't spray all over the place. Exaggeration, but you get the picture. But honestly, I've even used 3-in-1, bicycle teflon lube, AKA extreme lube, and they all work. I just feel that grease keeps the gun cleaner.

Talking Grease, oil and other slick stuff...

Shocker Lube or Dow33 is the best for any oring to metal contact (and to keep orings lubed). Lithium grease can be used but the main reason any company will pack their products with it is its low cost. It won't hurt but does not perform as well as Dow33.

I use Unique's oil on my bolt. Its a little thicker than the other popular oils so (by their estimation) it won't blow off. It definitely slides better than dow33. It also performs well in wide temperature range.
