Default So I bought an air rifle...what oil do I use?

So I have this bad boy on order:

It got me thinking that I already have a 1377, a 2100 and a airsoft glock that I have never oiled.

Can I use Rem oil or CLP? Is pellet gun oil only allowed?

You should use something that is compatible with the seals used in the gun. Follow the manufacturer's recommendation.

I've always used Rem Oil in my Walther 1000 but I'm sure it's not what is called for. Either way I've not had a problem in the 5 years I've owned it and shoot it regularly.

Adding oil to the inside of the compression chamber is simply not necessary.

Don't bother.

Yes, I know, the major airgun dealers offer silicone chamber oil for sale, but it won't do anything that the grease already inside the gun isn't doing.

regular oils in the Barrel or piston chamber will combust causing damage to seals and fouling the barrel, use Silicone oil in the Piston Chamber and barrel, use high quality oil for other areas such as pivot points and trigger assembly, I use Silicone shock oil from the Hobby shop, RWS has a oil kit you can get at PA.
