Gateron's newest addition to the mechanical switch lineup. Engineered with precision, this switch boasts a Nylon PA66 upper housing paired with a discreet black Ink housing base, and a robust POM stem. The upper housing and stem combination ensures exceptional stability, minimizing any unwanted wobbliness during keystrokes.

The pins are reinforced within the three-layer structure, providing a more reliable connection, reduced pin deformation, and an extended lifespan.

Renowned for its outstanding typing feel, the Oil King switch is renowned among users for its superb performance. Representing the pinnacle of automatic lubrication switches, it features an upgraded stem that ensures heightened stability. The switch components include a Nylon PA66 top housing, an ink material bottom housing, a POM stem, and a 20mm black-plated spring.

Operating with a 55g actuation force and a 2mm pre-travel distance, the Oil King switch delivers a remarkable typing experience with its smooth and responsive keystrokes. The 4.0mm total travel and 80g bottom force contribute to the switch's exceptional performance. With premium components, the switch offers an impressive lifespan of up to 60 million cycles.

    They are Oil Kings, not much else really to say.

    If you are looking for a smooth, creamy and deep sounding switch, especially if RGB isn't a huge concern, this is your switch right here.

    These are some of the smoothest and deepest sounding switches made. I've used these in couple of boards thus far and the sound, in a good case, means no need for case foam so you can truly hear there beauty in these switches on bottom out. They are not a light linear switch but so smooth you probably want notice unless all you have used are very light gaming switches. Type for a day or so even if you have and I'm sure you will get use to them, using them for both gaming and typing and they perform stellar for both.

    Excellent packaging and the pre-lube from the factory is excellent - no need for hand lubing.

    Will definitely purchase again when needed.

    I love this seller!! High quality switches!

    I love building keyboards and typing, so I wanted to give the oil king a try. Turns out they're fantastic! This package also comes with a free puller in case you don't have the tool for it which is cool.

    10/10 Awesome Switches

    Love these switches! A solid 10/10. They're easy to swap out when you have the right tool for it. This seller is great since they gave me a free puller tool.

    perfect upgrade!

    I switched from Cherry MX Reds to Gateron Oil King 5 Pin Linear Switches, and it's been a fantastic upgrade. These switches are incredibly smooth.


    I bought these switches to try them out. They are one of the best I ever used now! I love the sound of them. Theyre very satisfying to listen to when typing! 10/10 would recommend!!!!
