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 makes me ask the question how Spyders and Tippmanns use oil since their tolerance is acceptable at best.

because there are no dynamic seals (seals that have to seal while moving). In a timmy style ram the lube actually acts to help seal the ram. Where as those blowbacks only use the oil to help static (stationary) seals seal and to just provide lubrication and corrosion prevention. Remember lube's job isnt only to just lubricate.
