40 Mike Help

Recommended Posts

Hello from Texas.

I come in peace.

Passing through hoping to get a little help. I just purchased two Airsoft Innovations 40 Mike Magnum Grenades from a garage sale. They are new but missing the box and instruction manual.

Can somebody please tell me what the oil is for? Do you put oil where the bb's go?

Sorry for the stupid question. First time using airsoft grenades.

Have a great evening. And thanks for any and all help.

Peace, out...

The silicone oil?

There is a complicated issue/history with the oil found in most American Airsoft products.

The myth is to put it in the Gas to help keep the rings and seals lubed.  Sadly...this is all mostly WRONG.  Some seals don't need this "oil" treatment, Viton, Buna-N...etc.  Some seals will degrade with this oil "Rubber" and start leaking.

Can you post a picture of your 40mm AI "Shells".

Hey,

God morning. Thanks for the reply.

Yes. The silicone oil.

I tried to upload pictures. I can't get them off of my phone right now. The picture are the grenades I purchased. The box and manual were, are missing.

I thought about that. The gas I'm using has oil in it already. My only other thought was oiling the spring.

Thanks for the reply.

I would not use that oil unless you deem that your seals are "leaking".

You can also use Propane or Propene.

Airsoft Green Gas is not very "pure" and particles have been found in the gas that can be detrimental to gas gun longevity.
