Run out of interest and patience with it, time for disposal.

Oh dear.....been there, bough the T-Shirt!!!


Instead of selling it, have you considered putting it aside until you feel fresh with renewed enthusiasm for it?

I've done that a few time....usually when I feel like taking a soddin' great lump hammer to summat!! :-[  It works thar nars!! ;)

I'm not selling it , not do I only sometimes feel like taking hammers and fire to things , I actually do it, it's very cathartic.

I have been using Dryslide for 35yrs or so. Beeman Airguns first used it over here in the States for Springer's. They use to have 2oz spray Can's, comes out wet and Air dry's(evaporates) Gray in Color. when You later reaply it cleans and leaves the same mil thickness on work and no more. Good Stuff, I talked to Owner on Phone when Beeman went Bum's up, no more 2oz Cans Sold. only big costly gallon Cans then. Too much for Me and PCP's took over My Life....End of Story.....Franky

Thanks for that Franky , I've gone back to traditional moly paste and grease. Tried the dry ptfe on a record trigger assembley , seems ok but need to strip and inspect for wear.

The Brides Car Door Binds and stops with a Galling noise, I sprayed with Dri-slide now it closes right over the stop catch and closes on Your Leg. Had to clean off with Thinner and use Sewing Machine oil instead, Fixed door, but My Leg still hurt's.....Franky

Not tried rocol , to be honest my curiosity is on the backburner as non of my rifles will want servicing for a while . If I see a can of it at work , i'll pick it up though for future testing :).

x2 for Rocol, but it is expensive.....but then again, anything that is good is always expensive.

Quality costs!!

I tried some 3in1 branded ptfe dry lube in the hammer housing of my gleaming new hw100, it was ok, I suppose ::)... But normal cheapo spray oil 3in1 helped shot to shot consistency and required less preload on the hammer spring.

 Tried same  ptfe stuff in a much used and ever so slightly polished , well flattened, rekord trigger, it feels fine.

In the Beeman Catalog, It states DANGER don't use Dry-Slide or Molly Paste on Trigger Parts will not pass the Drop Test after use.....That's Lawyer's Speak for sure.....Franky

They also state "Use White Paste on Trigger Part's>"that They Sell by the way" But makes sense .
