Any off the shelf Paintball Marker oil that's sold at your Local Paintball Shop will work fine. remember when oiling your valve, remove your Barrel and put 2-3 drops into your ASA (that's where you screw in the tank) screw in your tank and fire off a few shots from an UNLOADED marker. To get the oil into your marker internals. Then remove the Air Source and replace the Barrel. Put a drop on Moving parts.

Real guns don't have O-rings because they don't have to deal with holding air pressure. Paintball markers aren't real guns. So what are they? They are closer to an air tool than a real gun. So you can use air tool oil on a paintball marker. Why is this important?  Because air tool oil is CHEAP.

 When you buy "paintball gun oil" it's just air tool oil in a bottle labeled "paintball gun oil". lol. Then they charge you $3.00-$5.00 for a one ounce bottle. lol.
 
Don't fall for that old trick. Here's the exact oil I've used for years and it works great. It's exactly the same as alot of "paintball gun oils". You can buy  bigger bottles of other brands for even less but 4 ounces last  me a really long time.

I've never seen anyone own the woods because of what marker they use.
