Lubing S6 hammer?

Has this even been put to bed? I know there was discussion a while ago regarding lubing T2 hammers or not. What is recommended for the S6?

The reason I ask is that I bought a used S6 that was performing quite well. I rebuilt the regulator as it started to leak a bit and when I had it apart I cleaned the bottom tube (did not remove the valve) and hammer and put it back in dry. I have since had pretty inconsistent shots at the chrono and trouble getting it up to speed even at 300-350psi and ~3 turns in. If so, can I use something like Tri-Flow or should I stick to a marker oil?

I use Tri-Flow on pretty much everything outside the regulator my T2. Works great!

Excellent! Even just fiddling with the hammer in the lower tube you can tell a difference with Tri-Flow on it. I will check it out next weekend at the field.

Oh dude - Triflow is AWESOME. A drop or two on the bolt (it is the only lube that doesn't swell delrin) and a drop on each guide arm - and the pump is uber smooth.

+2 For Tri-flow, lubing any moving parts helps performance, reduces friction. As stated Tri-flow won't swell delrin bolts and won't degrade o-rings (according to experts any petroleum products will degrade o-rings over time, oh-pooh).

Yeah, I have been using it on the pump arms and bolt for a while now but for some reason I never used it on the hammer...

Thanks!

We advise no lube on any of the CCM hammers, all you have to do is wipe them down with a cloth. No guns that leave CCM have lube anywhere but on the reg and on/off. Lubing up your hammer will increase the grit and dirt in your lower tube.

Follow Mel for the CCM official word...


I have found the Triflow on the closed bottom tube markers (S5, SS25, S6 and the like) causes little issue. That is just my two pennies and following it may void your warranty and your morality.

No on both accounts! Warranty and morality are safe.
Just want to try and spearhead any potential issues that might arise from over lubing.
