dow 55 is great for grease. For regular oil I'd use triflow or airtool oil. You don't really need anything special. I personally just keep a small bottle of extreme rage oil and the basic white grease the shop sells in my bag for at the field maintenance if required and at home I have a tub of dow 55 and a bottle of triflow.
EDIT LOL I looked at my tub of grease it is Dow 33 D'OH!

I thought Dow 55 was only to be used on certain brands of guns because they swell the o-rings slightly and can cause them to wear out faster. I was under the impression that most "grease" is actually rebranded Dow 33, which seems to be the grease of choice for most of the guns that require grease.

PB greases aren't always re-branded Dow 33. Companies do alter the formula a little. Or, they base their grease off something like Slick Honey.
pbjake - use whatever your marker's manual suggests.

My go tos are the new formulation of militia lube and gold cup. Have tried the extreme rage oil but found it to be too thin.

I do tech work on paintball guns nonstop. I fix guns literally every day at work.
I have never seen a need to use anything other than 100% synthetic air tool oil, or dow 33 depending on application. On my personal matrixes I use a blend of air tool oil and dow 33.

I have been using KC Trouble Free Oil with good results for years. My bottle is about empty. Are there small applicator type bottles of synthetic air tool oils available anywhere like Home Depot, Lowes, Grainger, etc?
