I recently purchased an spray can of Liquid Wrench White Lithium Grease, and proceeded to apply it to the barrel selector on my Sharpshooter II. It appeared to work fine...
... Until I returned not even five minutes later, I began to remove some of the excess grease from it to find that the plastic beneath it had become lighter in color. I picked at it and saw that the plastic was melting.
I quickly cleaned it out with hot water, soap and cue tips, what I removed from the inside wasn't whitish like the grease but green. I reassembled the barrel selector, and the top part cracked down the middle of it, probably due to it partly being dissolved.
The weird thing is:
-It says that it is plastics safe.
-After testing it on a maverick shell there was no effect (though its probably different a different type of plastic).
-No one in this thread said anything about any problems with it.
The Moral: Test lubricants that you haven't used before on non-vital parts of it, now I have a SSII that will be singled [I don't want to be].
