I can understand concern with using the wrong thing and also the thrift from buying bulk oil at the supply house. But if you are honestly thinking about using some crazy lubricant over springing for the $4 paintball oil, maybe you need to find a new hobby?
I doubt I need a new hobby. The point of this thread was to find a suitable substitute. All the pro-shops, Wal-marts, Canadian Tire etc. always seem to be sold out when I go looking for oil. If I could find a bottle of synthetic oil I would have enough for years instead of always running out. It has nothing to do with being thrifty, just sick of not having enough on hand.

Bacon grease: high temperature lube, penetrates well and nothing drives 'em wild like bacon and brass.

seriously: I just use pneumatic tool oil. Economical, widely-available and its meant to lubricate o-rings, in...um... air tools, so it makes sense it would work for paintball guns and stuff.

In the world I see - you are stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty car pool lane of some abandoned superhighway.

You gas up the marker, put on the gloves, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed a test, that your girlfriend broke up with you last night, or that you got a ticket on the way there... your world is right for the next couple hours, this is your heaven on earth.. live it.. love it..

ditto - Amflo 1220-4 4oz = 1.25

I also use silicon based Napa Syl-Glyde... it is designed to be pretty heat and cold resistant.. and seems to work well where liquid co2 could possibly go.

You should be able to find Tri-Flow at most bike shops, MEC carries it too, in the bike section.
Not the cheapest option though.
I wonder how drug-store mineral oil would work? Should be additive-free and I *think* that it's the base for stuff like Battle-Lube (I actually wouldn't be surprised if that's all it was, mineral oil + a bit of purple dye).
