Bought one of the large size tubes of Dow33 years ago, and use either it, or Gold Cup oil on almost everything. I also like to use Tech T Salve in my Invert. I can lube it once and go through several cases of paint, open it back up and looks like I just did it.

After shooting about 50 cases through my mini, without any maintenance at all, I noticed that it was starting to wear the anno in the bottom of the breach. So I took it apart and packed it with so much Dow33 that I wasn't sure it would work when I put it back together.

When I first got it, I dipped the boards in waterproof epoxy, like all my other guns, so that I can wash it in the dishwasher without taking it apart.

One and a half seasons later, that was the only maintenance I've done.

Well... It's easier to maintain that way. If it's not dirty enough to run it, then it's usually still dirty enough to use the sink sprayer, at least.

I always seem to take a ball to the trigger. Doesn't matter what gun I'm shooting. I get to the field and it's just a countdown to when it's going to happen.

Basically, in my opinion, all paintball guns should be rugged enough to be able to wash in the sink. Te lubing can be more precise. But we play a dirty game. And time spent cleaning a gun with cu-tips is time that I could've spent whoring.

RadioShack® Anti-Corrosive Lubricant Spray for my boards
This anti-corrosive lubricant spray from RadioShack penetrates and protects contacts and controls from seizing. It's non-flammable which makes it useful for electronic projects. And, it dissolves corrosion and displaces moisture, keeping metal protected and contact points clean.

I use whatever I have, it all works fine. I use grease for moving parts and oil for stationary seals. orings and springs in good condition is most important.

optimally if you were designing a gun with no regards to cost you would want to make your tolerances high enough and your fit and finish high enough that you could use oil for the lubricant even on spool valves. But mass produced guns rally cant meet that level of tolerances and still sell so thats why we use grease a lot. One thing I like about ego's is that their rammer tolerances are high enough that you do use oil instead of grease like almost all other Timmy style markers.

That is also why the breach wears out so easily.

Thicker lube (sl33k and dye slick) is better for spool valved guns in my opinion.
I use bostich oil for my mags and cockers
and all of my regulators get Vaseline

do you notice any issues with the buna-n (black) orings in you regs from the vasoline? That petroleum jelly SHOULD eat the buna-n but I have no idea how long it would take to even be noticeable.
