Potentially too thick and sticky, though it shouldn't damage it. Worst case you have to wipe it all off and re-oil it. Paintball gun oil, ATF, Hoppes No. 9 gun oil (NOT the solvent), air tool oil, or mineral oil should do the trick.
Do NOT use WD-40, penetrating oil, cooking oil (really, seen it before, nasty rancid smelling results), liquid wrench, axle grease, or petroleum jelly.
