The response from the Daisy folks was that all the cartridges they carry do contain oil to ensure that the interior parts of air rifles get lubricated. The post was a couple years old, but I would suspect that at least some of the cartridges still being produced continue to contain oil.


Bug is right. regular CO2 cartridges used for air guns, etc, do have some oil in them. You really need to get food grade CO2.
