Walther SSP "Spezialfett" special grease

Walther SSP owners, what do you use instead of "Spezialfett" special grease? Any specific brand and type recommendation? Manual says to use only this super special secret lube and does not provide any information about substitute when you run out of it. Walther stopped selling it long time ago as it seems. I found some older threads about the same topic discussing that any silicone grease from a dive shop will work, but there was also opinions that it might not be a good idea to use it on aluminum surfaces. Common consensus is that the special grease is required to to o-ring seals in the air damper. Advice and opinions are welcome, thank you!

I would use a heat resistant grease, silicon based sounds good to me.
But avoid additional PTFE (e.g. Teflon(R)) within. With heat it can react to very aggressive hydrofluoric acid.

(As oil I'm using full synthetic engine oil. It was engineered within decades for highest heat stability, pressures and viscosity and is much cheaper than "special" weapon oils.)

The SSP manual says: "10. Lubricate the guide grooves and guide combs with a small amount of acid-free grease."
Seems, that there is no need for anything special but "acid-free"

Thank you for the reply @michas! So far I've got the following recommendation on another forum: Super Lube 12004 Air Tool Lubricant, 4 oz Bottle, Translucent Clear . There is a variety of other silicone based lubes from this manufacturer as well. Clearly I can not use anything petroleum based for this specific part

I need to clarify that I was asking about 22LR rimfire pistol, not CO2.

I just clean and lube with available products that I get at most gun stores
