Likely already asked and answered but I’m having trouble finding.

I recently discovered a DH Model 102 at my grandparents’ house. Can’t find an owner’s manual for it, and having trouble finding this answer online. What size bb is appropriate for this model air rifle? My guess is the standard .177 but I want to be sure before I try it. Thank you!

Thank you! Like I said, just wanted to confirm so I don’t wreck it.

It would be a good idea to oil the seals before shooting it much. The oil helps the seals to seal and prevents unnecessary wear due to them being dry.

GOOD OILS   

1. 3-In-One Electric Motor Oil (not the same as “regular” 3-In-One, see photo). It's a good quality 20w oil, available from Walmart, Ace, and others. Costs about the same as Pellgunoil (around $4), but you get 12 times as much. Has a built-in applicator tip and cap, too. This or motor oil in a needle tip bottle would be my first choice.    

2. Motor oil. Daisy recommends straight 20w, but it's usually hard to find. I personally use 5w-20 Mobil 1. There are no worries anymore about using detergent motor oil. This can be a bit messy, but it is the least expensive for most people. Even the remnants from the empties from an oil change or scavenged from a gas station trash can will last a long time. I use thinner oil rather than something like 20w-40 or straight 30w. To apply bulk oil like motor oil, I use needle tip plastic bottles. I pay $2- $3 for 5. They take a couple of weeks to get to you from China: https://www.fasttech.com/products/1842504.   

3. Crosman Pellgunoil. I looked up the MSDS info and found that this is nothing more than 20w detergent diesel motor oil. Available in 1/4oz tubes at Walmart. Expensive at around $4 (works out to around $500 per quart!!). It would not be my first choice, but better than nothing in a pinch.

Straight 20w motor oil is available if you know where to look.   I picked up a quart a while ago at a discount store and more recently at Advance Auto Parts.   It's not a big stock and high volume item but many parts jobbers still have it, sometimes in the back room to save shelf space.
