Review: I was able to be one of five testers that tested this product for Mario over at A5OG.net.

Before I used Pure Lube, I had been using White Lithium Grease to lube up my Cyclone, and Gold Cup Marker oil to oil the o-rings throughout the marker. Both of these products did an adequate job of fulfilling their duties. The biggest thing I disliked about the White Lithium Grease is that it made a mess of everything. You fingers would get all greasy & it was always getting on other parts that didnít need it.

Pure Lube fixed my biggest complaint about White Lithium Grease (it makes a mess), by using a Syringe to dispense the lubricant. The application of this lube is very slick (pun intended); just squeeze the lube out in the precise area that itís needed. No more messy fingers to worry about unless youíre lubing the o-rings, but that canít be helped.

I found that Pure Lube has a really nice consistency; itís thinner than White Lithium Grease, but still much thicker than oil. It is also very sticky, and youíll be hard pressed to get it to run.

When using White Lithium Grease, I always found myself slopping the grease all over everything & putting on excessive amounts. It is very easy to put Pure Lube precisely where itís needed, and a little bit of Pure Lube goes a long ways.

I know of many people who donít like to oil the o-ring on the Front Bolt of their A-5 because they donít want to risk getting oil in the barrel or on the balls. Pure Lube is perfect for this because it isnít thin enough to run. The Pure Lube will stay were you put it, yet still provide perfect lubrication.

I had a few concerns about how well Pure Lube would hold up to being used on o-rings that are constantly subjected to the high pressure of cold C02, such as the A-5ís Rear Bolt o-rings & the Cycloneís Piston Rod o-ring. Needless to say, after thorough testing I have found that Pure Lube works great on ALL o-rings!

I also noticed that my Cyclone makes much less noise with the Pure Lube, than it did with White Lithium Grease. I think it might have something to do with Pure Lube being a little stickier than White Lithium Grease.
Conclusion: The Syringe is what sets this lube apart from all the others, and because of the Syringe, this is [by far] the best lube I have ever used! I heartily give Pure Lube a rating of 10 out of 10.
