Crosman "NITRO VENOM" pellet rifle maintenance
i need some advice about my new .177 crosman pelletgun........is it ok to use brake fluid as the lube for the compression chamber which uses compressed nitrogen as the propellant gas? The company recommends their silicone based chamber lube which i am sure would work but it is very expensive for such a small amount and i hear from people--not necessarily sure of their expertise-- that brake fluid is an excellent substitute which will not adversly affect the piston mechanism since it is used in very delicate auto transmission components for very long periods!!
What say you, guys?
