Join me, sit back and relax in this video, with no commentary, while I clean and service my KSC P226 PTP.

If you own a different handgun, this video is going to work as a valuable reference since most of the GBB pistols have similar parts/sections to oil/grease.

General guidelines are:
a. White Lithium Grease should have no petroleum added (check the label)
b. Apply White Lithium Grease only on metal-with-metal friction
c. Apply Silicon Oil on rubber parts or metal-with-rubber friction
d. If you fear some rubber parts may contact with White Lithium Grease..avoid using it
e. No lubricant must meet the hop up/inner barrel sections. Don't even get it close, as moving parts and friction might splash it on them
f. Don't overdue it, a tiny amount of grease is more than enough and it stay there for a long time
g. I prefer to use latex gloves and dip my index finger in grease, then pour it on the parts I want to grease..then use my middle finger to remove the excess and clean it. This way I have a main finger that I use for greasing and another one I use to take excess out.

The video is roughly divided in three sections:
1. Preemptive cleaning and residue removal
2. Greasing
3. Externals cleaning with silicon spray

I thought white lithium grease was okay for rubber? Do you think the silicon just gives it better lube than the white lithium?

As for the petroleum, A while ago I tested out it's effects on the bucking. I took an old bucking I have that was ripped and dabbed some white lithium grease on half of it. The grease says it contains petroleum on the label. I kept the other side of the bucking clean. After 3 weeks I cleaned it off and compared the sides to find the petroleum did absolutely nothing. Now I use it on my o-rings without a problem.

First off I should say the warning labels I put on my video are there because most people often think grease = white lithium grease. That is in part due to the fact that the best, "most slippery substance on earth" (quoting someone else on this forum..I am sure I read that somewhere around here.." has got to be white lithium grease.

BUT..I don't use it, in my video..if you check the label you'll see is something different and it doesn't hurt rubbers, at all..while being slippery and consistent to sit there after weeks of weapon use.

For one reason or another, I was never able to find white lithium grease when I wanted to buy it..so you see I am putting warning labels on my videos more for hearsay from veteran users, rather than from personal use..the only reason I do this for such things is that a little more caution never hurts..

Anyway, glad to know it didn't hurt..one thing I should say is that I've still got to find two identical white lithium grease products with the same composition..so that's why I am always skeptical in the sense that "maybe THIS will hurt my o-rings"..
