I just lube the outside of the powertube lightly, the hammer and bolt. Just one or two smal drops of oil. Avoid lubing the front oring and I am good. And I only do it so often.

As long as oil isn't getting on your paintballs, it's fine. Take a couple shots, then unscrew your barrel and check it for oil residue. Even if you over-oil it it's just going to temporarily throw off your accuracy; it won't hurt the gun.

You should never run oil through your air lines. The oil will soften the urethane oring in the powertube and cause it to get sticky reducing efficiency. This comes from the man himself.


Also I would recommend trying out other peoples phantom setups before you go and buy stuff without trying. Should go without saying but people get overzealous sometimes.

Getting a little oil on the bolt o-ring isn't going to hurt anything. As mentioned, any residual oil on the bolt o-ring will blow right off after the first few shots. It's highly doubtful that such an insignificant amount of oil (pretty much an immeasurable amount) will really throw off accuracy at all.

The analogy to the AK-47 isn't too far off. You don't need to get hung up on the small stuff like a little oil on your o-ring as the Phantom is almost indestructible. However, I've worked on some customers guns that are dripping with oil and caked with crud and dirt. While most Phantoms will still function under poor conditions like that, all bets on accuracy and especially performance are off.

Just keep it clean (inside and out), smear a FEW DROPS of oil with your finger on all the internals, and you'll have a gun that will last for decades. Smearing a drop or two of oil on the inside of your pump handle will help reduce ano wear on your barrel as well.

One more quick FYI for WalkOn...

here in the CCI forum, you'll see references to "the man himself" or "Mike". People are talking about Mike Casady, the owner of CCI who invented/produces the Phantom. Many here have corresponded with him via email, or spoken to him on the phone, and he has imparted his wisdom to them. Basically, if Mike has advice on any issue involving Phantoms (or a variety of other paintball related topics), it's always best to go with what he says.

Beware when calling Mike, though. He's an absurdly nice guy, and is pretty much guaranteed to have something lying around his shop that you would like to own. You will spend money, and probably feel good about it, if you talk to him long enough.

I don't think it can be said enough. Mike's friendly, knowledgeable, provides excellent customer service and builds some of the best products in paintball.
