I see that there are two different greases.

But, they look like same.

Is there any differences?

If possible, I am thinking to put either gearbox grease or cylinder grease for all.

Anyone can help?

Also, I bought a new AGM gun.
How much will a ZCI M110 spring bring up the FPS?

Can I get a help with upgrading the gun later?

I use this stuff for my entire gearbox + cylinder assembly.

http://smile.amazon.com/Super-Lube-21030-Synthetic-Grease/dp/B000XBH9HI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1443027983&sr=8-1&keywords=Superlube

I use to use white lithium grease , but honestly, white lithium is nasty after it sits in a gearbox for a couple of months.

Superlube (in my opinion) works a lot better than white lithium with the benefit that it will not slowly degrade any rubbers in your gearbox (such as the o-ring.) Its also a lot easier to clean out (pick up a spray bottle of goo gone, that stuff is great for getting the grease out, then wash with dish soap.)

A lot of online airsoft retailers like to sell 'specialty' lubes designed for gearboxes, but 100% of the time they are overpriced and are the same thing that Superlube is.
