The name stands for itself

If you're looking for a good factory lubed option, look no further.
The gat oil king maintains the - now classic - gat crispy and thock sound profile while providing a great travel and virtually no scratches.

The spring weight is also great for folks that suffer from finger fatigue.
The only linear I got used besides the oil kings where the nk silks... that said, since the oil kings are a tiny bit heavier than the silks yellows, and with great factory lube, they take the lead.

Best Stock Linears

After trying Milky Yellow Pros, Aqua Kings, and a few others, Oil Kings are by far the best stock linears I've ever used. 10/10 would recommend. You can also lube them for a very minor improvement in performance, but I'd say it's not worth the trouble if you absolutely hate lubing. If you enjoy lubing, go nuts.

Really good sound profile, and are buttery smooth

Poppy sound profile if you put them on a bakeneko! Really good out of the box, not to heavy to actuate or light, just the perfect amount of actuation needed!

You cannot go wrong with Oil Kings!

Gateron Oil Kings are just on a level of its own. Whether stock or lubed, they sound amazing and consistently smooth.

We think these are some of the best switches to take out of the bag and throw into a build without modding. Happy to hear you like them as much as we do!

Smooth out of the box

These switches pack a major punch, out of the box these are smooth as can be with a nice deep sound signature that provides linear lovers a great sound. Only thing is the springs are heavy but are easily replacable.
