I noticed today that I was having a rough time screwing my tank on and off. If I lube the threads on my tank will it get into my noid and hurt it. So lubing the threads= a good idea... or no?

*EDIT: I will be using Dye Slick Lube, unless that makes a difference.*

I put lube on my tank threads, and nothings gone wrong. So I guess it's okay, just be sure to not get any past the o-ring.

Honestly? It's not going to help at all.

Sounds like your ASA's threads are in rough shape. See if you can find someone with a bottoming tap to dress them.

Lube is fine, just don't use oil on a compressed tank. Use Dow 33.

Check around the Dragun forums... the drops they have are pretty good (it's what I use) and they go for around $10-15 shipped. The only downside with them is that they use some kind of funky metric allen key to lock the drop to the rail.

*Edit* The drop I am using is off the "One".
