Oil/Sleek on Barrel O-rings

Just wondering is it bad to put some oil or Sleek on the barrel o-ring. Basically to help it screw together easier and stop the squeaking.
Also, OPINIONS on Monkey Poo vs Sleek?

i wouldnt worry about the oil on the barrel too much.. last thing you want is any chance of your barrel repeatedly coming loose during games and such. the squeaking is no big deal really just try to keep unscrewing your barrel to a minimum. also i would probably use a thinner oil like the type you put on tank threads etc because grease as opposed to oil would seal rather than provide less friction.

think about it.. grease gunks up and it just might be messy and seep into the inside of the barrel. either way always squeegie your barrel fresh n clean before you mow faces at the field. at least I do. grab your oil and put a SMALL drop on both the threads AND the o-ring. when you screw the two barrel pieces together it will naturally spread the oil out and you should be good to go bro!
