    Posted: 22 October 2005 at 4:06pm
Alright, I know this may seem an elementary question to some, but since I bought an A-5 I figured I would learn the RIGHT way to take care of my Marker. I was looking through all the documentation on the Tippmann page and I Ran across the correct form of lube for my gun somewhere, and I cannot for the life of me find where again. it was something #6 and I am new to paintball (only A year of on/off play) and I am going to the store soon to get my new N2 tank filled and hopefully get some lube. Any help would be really appreciated. - Chris King

I think that any lube for blowback markers would work though. I have some Empire lube, and it works really well (no scuzzy stuff, now drippy mess, it just works.)

i heard that hoppes 9 eats away at o-rings and you should just use regular hoppes, i may have it backwards though.

Hoppe's #9 cleaner may go after "O" rings. Hoppe's oil is what Tippmann recommends!!! Hoppe's OIL is what you want.
