I was searching for some lubrication in stores that did not contain Petroleum Distillates, which as most know is a "no no" for airsoft guns due to rubber deterioration. I am aware that Dunhams sells airsoft specific lubrication but it comes in such a small package for around $6-8. I went to Lowe's and found this stuff here for about the same price I believe, with a lot more content. It is derived from soy instead of petrolium, so I decided to give it a whirl. I have only had time to use it for holding gas in the magazines but they have held for ~3 weeks so far with no issue. Tell me what you all think and I apologize for any grammatical errors.

I bought a bottle of ICS silicone spray from Evike for around $6 or so December of 2011, I still have it and it's only about half-gone. I over-lube my guns, if that tells you how long it'll go. But I'm sure there are cheaper cans with a larger volume that aren't designed specifically for airsoft that work just as well.
Super lube for anything that you need grease for, and silicon rc shock oil for anything you need a liquid oil for, such as o rings. Shock oil comes in varying weights, and you can mix it with other weights or even super lube to get whatever consistency you need. Since shock oil is 100% silicon you don't need to worry about it eating through o rings and other plastic/rubber parts.
