I got my Sonix pretty recently, and i have already played a few games... I was thinking does this thing need oiled? what all do you need to oil? Just the bolt? Anything else?.... also, I don't have any paintball gun oil, and i was wondering if regular gun oil would work?

-Thanks for the help

First, Oil every o ring inside the marker...nothing else :)
Second, Gun oil will swell the o rings....go buy some "paintball" oil....

also put like 3 drops in your asa (the thing the tanks screwes into) and fire of about 10-15 shots with out barrel and paintballs that keeps the internals nice and fresh

pm me for more questions on tear down and cleaning

Guide to lubricants (http://forum.ariakon.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=6960&PN=1)

Synthetic paintball lubricants are more efficient, and also they will not dissolve and gum up your marker. Since the cold months of the year are setting using oils and low viscosity paste are ideal. Extreme Rage oil is 100% synthetic and is also my Axe of choice.
