Rattle guns are suspose to rattle !
But seriously you can pick up the oil from a tool shop for air tools a couple of drops every day .
lts a light oil that dosn't efect the seals or efected by moisture.
as they say oils ain't oils.

as said, you can buy the oil where they sell air equipment, a couple of drops inside the coupling before you connect the tool to the hose and you're sweet.

Unless your using it every day, wouldn't be overly worried.

Like the previous posts say, couple of drops in the line before you connect it, then make sure when you run it, you are clear of the exhaust port, throws out black stuff you see.

I use a gun for my Pan Brake to remove a bar, it stays permantly attached, probably use it one a day............. I oil it maybe every three months.

Cheers

gday gompy.
on the side of the rattle gun on the handle you will find a little bolt (or screw)pthat you remove to oil.well thats what your supposed to do.
we used rattle guns day in and day out fitting tyres.
every friday i would disconect the air line and pous some light hydraulic oil down plug the air line back on and hold it flat out.fowards and reverse.if oil wasnt coming out the air inlet i would do it again.
