Question Squeaky Pump Guide Rods - Polish or Lube?

My CCM pump kit is well worn. It seems to squeak around the pump guide rods. Should I polish the rods and the holes in the aluminum plate? How do I polish? Or should I just lube it? Which lube?

I just use a drop of oil every once in a while and wipe off the excess.

If you don't mind spending the money (six or eight bucks) Tri-flow is the slickest lube I have found for this application. Many on this board will scoff at the idea of such a "specialty" product, but EVERY player on Pumpenstein that has tried mine has either bought their own or steals some from another player when they need lube. Works great on the delrin bolt too and in fact has been the preferred lube for Intimidator bolts by all of Bob's techs for years.

I could have sworn that I was told to keep oil away from the delrin bolts. And that oil causes them to swell.

yeah, I thought delrin was self-lubricating.

Tri-flow will not swell delrin at all and as slick as a delrin bolt is without it, one or two drops spread with your fingers will make it much more so. It is super effective on o-ringed bolts too. You want to use it sparingly to keep dirt collection to a minimum, but it is not too bad. On Intimidators, even with that big slot down the top of the body for the bolt pin grime does not collect horribly, but it WILL hold more dirt than a dry bolt will. Keep in mind that since 2003 I have used it on litterally hundreds of Intimidator bolts (bolts only as the Intimidator takes Dow55 on everything else), as well as all of my personal guns with no ill effects.
Find it at bicycle shops.

Delrin being self lubricating simply means that the plastic that delrin is made of has a component in it that when scraped off is viscous.

I agree with JKW - Triflow has never caused any component of my delrin parts to swell - including the 05 Speed that I used to shoot that ran on delrin and not on o-rings.

Thanks guys!

Yeah, I owned an 06 Intimidator for a short while and discovered the wonderful properties of Tri-Flow. I bought the Superior Dry initially on accident, and used it successfully on my timmy bolt, then later on my tungsten hammer when I had a Free Flow Lotus. It goes on as liquid then dries up. I started using it around the house, making my glass sliding door squeak free.

Funny thing- I got my hands on a CCM return spring, and after removing the Phantom return spring I was using on the lower pump guide rod and installing the CCM in the handle, the squeaking on the main pump guide rod went away. I think having the Phantom spring on the lower pump guide caused a slight alignment issue that resulted in the squeaking.
