Substitute for chamber oilAugust 15 2003 at 3:49 PM

What if any could be substituted for chamber oil for older leather sealed guns.
I have acquired quite a number of older diana's with leather seals and my supply of Beeman chamber oil is running out.
I heard Neatfoot oil, may be used, but would that cause dieseling?.
RWS Chamber oil

which is still being sold, unlike Beemans'- which is limited to whatever is on shelves. Silicone oil and neatsfoot oil blended is what Beemans lube was. RB

...what is the RWS Chamber Oil exactly? It's much less viscous than the old Beeman stuff, and sorta scared me a little on that count, just "looks" more flammable!
Have some on hand, but have been chicken to use it. How well does it work really?
I think it's more intended for use

with their synthetic seals, but I don't know it's chemical make-up. RB

Read somewhere that neatsfoot oil was not recommended...

for leather seals ...something about it turns 'em to mush? Silicon oil recommended instead.
