Sheridan lubricant

Hi,

Might be a dumb question--but what's the best oil/lubricant to use on Sheridans. I've used triflow synthetic oil before, but wanted to make sure bolt o-rings, etc. aren't going to experience any swelling.

Thanks!
Brian

My preference is Palmers low temp synthetic oil.

That works ... When I feel fancy I use my clock oil (synthetic wale oil) for the moving parts

Any solvent free synthetic oil is fine. Air tool oil is generic and fine. If it smells like solvent and chemically you don't wanna use it.

Basically any actual paintball oil and a lot of generic oils.

ATF I think some of the better oils are made out of.

Very good--thanks all. I'm going to pick up some air tool oil, as I just ran out of Hellmann's and Parkay Squeeze tonight.
