Gateron Oil King Switch 110 Switches


Linear Typing Feel

The Oil King switch is the newest mechanical linear switch that features a Nylon PA66 upper housing, a housing base made of secret black Ink housing material, and a POM stem. The stem in the upper housing is fantastic with ultra-stability and almost no wobbliness. Compared to CJs, it has a deeper patch sound.

Gold Contact

The gold contact improves anti-oxidation performance and protects the key switch from corrosion, guaranteeing the switch will last for up to 60 million cycles. 


The Oil King switch is pre-lubed to help avoid spring ping and unnecessary friction and hitches.
