    What kind of lubricant do you use? That is the best you can do.

    You should use pure silicone grease for o-rings.

    Silicone oil... get some 40 or 50 weight from the local R/C hobby shop.

    Just make sure it's actually silicone and not petroleum based "silicone".

    These where the only ingredients on the lube.

    I hope this thread doesn't get locked but the brand of the lube is actually Eros. My logic is that these would be more slick then regular gun lube because... well... its that kind of lube...
