I don't think it really matters. Synthetic oil, a drop or two, some people run em dry. Avoid petroleum base, no grease.

Phantoms only need the tears of your opponents for lubricant. Like many things in life you get out what you put in.

Jokes aside whatever lubrication you use, use it sparingly in the phantom so it doesnt gum things up over time.

Back in the 90's I used Gold Cup, the bottle of Gold Cup I have now I bought 3 to 4 years ago (like what has been mentioned before in this post). My O-Rings stay just fine and I only use a drop on my Phantom Hammer/Bolt assembly about 2 to 3 times a year.

I have also heard from many people many times that Gun Oil will turn O-Rings into goo.

Great stuff! I used KC Trouble Free for years with great results. Ran out and now I am using Super Lube oil.

Synthetic Oil With PTFE (High Viscosity)

Lots of great options here thanks for all your input, its seems Goldcup is the popular vote and although most these options work the same i might as well get what everyone else is using since its tried and tested.

Gold Cup it is!

I've pretty much used whatever paintball oil I could get my hands on. Never had trouble with any of them. Even used vegetable oil a few times in a pinch. Especially with the Phantom I think you're good to go with any paintball oil. Not like it needs much.
