TriFlow on the bolt Orings... Dow55 on the rest for the Bob Longs. Forget this mixing garbage for the good guns and waste your time brewing something up on the g3.

Mixing a hydrocarbon based lubricant with a silicone based lubricant is a recipe for disaster, especially if you aren't willing to make a fresh batch every time you service your gun.

Look at your comment. Back to mine. Back to yours NOW BACK TO MINE. Sadly, it isn't mine. But if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate crap it could LOOK like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through the comments, finding the ones that your comment could look like. Back at mine, what is it? It's a highly effective counter-troll. Look again, MY COMMENT IS NOW DIAMONDS.

It doesn't require much, just enough contact to the side walls so the pressure of the air swells them outward to create a perfect seal.

And I must say Lopez that I cannot take credit for that "tip" regarding leaving them in Dow55 overnight. I prefer my own concoction of Dow Lubes and Tri-Flow for the ultimate in Lubes which leaves a slicker final product that still causes swelling on O-rings. I have yet to meet a Marker that doesn't work better with it, including those whose manufacturers suggest oil instead of grease.

I call it Formula-44D.

It consists of 2 parts Dow33 to 1 part Dow55 and depending on the size of the batch (I use a standard container) about 10 drops of Tri-Flow. Talk about slippery stuff!

This. You do not need anything crazy for Bob's guns. Do what you want with the others but for the BL just a bit of Dow 55 on absolutely everything except the bolt. 1 drop of triflow on each bolt o-ring.
