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.)

I have the SSP 22 lr pistol and never heard of a specialized lubricant to use
I just clean and lube with available products that I get at most gun stores
