Product Description
The Gateron Oil King Linear Switches are so-named because they offer a thorough, thematic approach to factory lubrication. Gateron’s clear goal with the Oil King switches is to provide smooth, linear action right out of the box—that complements their moderate-to-heavy 55-gram actuation force—thanks to uncommon attention to detail when lubing the housing and stem at the factory Read More

Stock Kings?
I have some points that I think you might be interested in. Stock: well, they are definitely great stock. I treated them the same as cherry picking Aqua Kings since they were some scratch masters in the mix. If you can afford to buy a few hundred to choose the very best from then you won't need to lube them. And then you can modify the others to meet a specific sound signature which I like to do (: When it come to stock Gateron's these are the most consistently lubed, smooth, and great stock sounding switches out of all the Gat's I've tried. Lubed, is weird for me. I feel like I get the sound I like with 106 oil instead of grease. I don't like slow, sticky linears.

My personal favorites are lubed and filmed Gateron Robin Custom switches. I love the thick, marble clacking I get from them. But stock is atrocious! Anyways, besides the scratchy outliers these are fantastic stock Gat's, I'd recommend buying a set or two but on a sale since you know, wallet pains (:

Great stock but an rgb killer
Fantastic out of the box stock experience and sound from these switches. Very deep, very smooth. They are super black housings though so don't expect your PCB LEDs to shine through much

pretty good
I like that they don't need to be lubed if you don't want to. wouldn't spend more than 65c each though.

These are the smoothest linear keys I have ever tried. They make my keyboard sound thocky without any other modifications to the board. I actually smiled and was impressed when first trying them out. Happy I got a pack, will definitely get more for myself and for my friends. Note, these switches are not light friendly. Cost: I got these for $25, you could get these switches elsewhere for cheaper. I got these on drop for the convenience and free shipping (orders over $100) Shipping: It took a while to arrive about a month or so. The shipping packaging was slightly inefficient but protective. The package was too big for what only had these tiny switches. I think a 40% keyboard could have fit in the shipping box. The switches were wrapped in bubble warp and inside of another bubble wrap envelope. The switches themselves are neatly arranged in a protective plastic case. Great for storing the switches you might replace. Quality: Out of the whole batch only 1 had slightly different weight when pressed.
