    Lithium moly grease - Yay or nay?

    Post  dchil15 on Thu Jun 13, 2013 8:57 am

    Here the deal, I have a Alpha trooper that I recently got running again after it spent a considerable amount of time in pieces after I took it apart and f**ked up an AR removal. The plunger on test firing appeared to be moving too slowly and I think it needs more lube so I looked around the house and found a tub of grease. It said on the front that it is Lithium grease with molybdenum disulphide in it. I have looked around and found that moly grease is ok but not recommended and lithium grease is good but nothing about this mix.
    Do you think it would be worth trying in an attempt to coax some more range out of my AT? Anybody going to outright say 'Its gonna wreck your gun don't do it." It gets worse ranges than my AR removed maverick.

    ETA: Does anyone know of a suitable spring that can be found in bunnings (century springs another that is available there) that will increase the ranges to past 60ft after some reinforcement?

    Nothing suitable at bunnings sorry. The tolerances on reverse plunger blasters are very fine when it comes to main springs so you really need to look at one of the aftermarket suppliers.

    Hey Dchil15.

    Be careful as some Lube you used to lube your o-rings as some lubes can eat the o-rings.

    This is the I lube I use on my o-rings in nerf blasters. 

    What you need to look for is water base silicone lube, you might have trouble buy it as you need to be 18 of age to get the good stuff as I get it from sexy land.

    What ingredients generally make the orings expand?


    I am trying some of this stuff out on some pieces of AR and i'm going to see if it eats them or makes them more brittle, if it doesn't i'm going to try and find an unused oring to try it on.
    ETA: It didn't eat the plastic. Now to find a oring.
    Where did i put those wrecked spectres.....
