Just wondering, as I couldn't find silicone grease: will lithium grease corrode rubber if I'm using it as a lubricant between brass and rubber o-rings? Keeping in mind that the brass is used as a trigger pin (meaning that the o-rings will be sliding constantly), I'd like to know if lithium grease is an acceptable substitute to silicone grease. Thanks.

I use a silicone spray, I found it near the wd-40. Check the ingredients on it for petroleum products.

Use airsoft silicone lubricant. Most other types come with acetone and some other material that eats rubber and plastic.

I would imagine that paint ball gun lube would also work well because it is designed to not eat rubber and handle a lot of abuse/extreme conditions.
