There's really nothing to lube. Put a drop or 2 of oil on your 12 gram before airing it up every couple days of play and once in a while strip it down and wipe down the hammer and internals(don't really need to take the valve out) and put a couple drops of oil on the hammer so it's smooth. It should take you about 5 minutes.

I suggest gold cup.

Sewing machine oil will be fine, but most use air tool oil. You really don't need much at all. I'd use a drop every few months or so.

I wouldn't recommend using sleek lube or any other grease on your phantom. The only thing you'll need is a few drops of oil on the bolt. I run my hammer without any lube to prevent it from sticking and causing velocity inconsistency.
