In the manuals for my pole saw and my 16" chainsaw, it mentions use of a "grease syringe". Is this different from a grease gun? I wonder if distinction is about appropriate size for hole.  Can anyone recommend a brand or link to product.  Thank You.

Here's a video showing how to lubricate the sprocket at the end of the bar:

Here's a link to the on-line 16" chainsaw manual in case you need it, the sprocket lube is covered on page 44:
