View Full Version : best lube for the vs

11-06-2006, 06:30 AM
I dont actually have my vs2 yet but this seems to be a very common question without a solid answer

some say dont oil the bolt it will swell others are saying its okay

but what about dow 33 on all parts I run it on my mr1 and it works great way better than oil and no big oily messes

would dow cause the delrin to swell also or would it be okay ?

I've put regular gun oil on kingman Delrin bolts, no swelling. I've put dow33 on a nylatron bolt, no swelling, but I havn't put dow33 on delrin before.

i hear that hater sauce would be much helpful then dow 33 on the vs series like it is on most markers... anybody heard of it, or what about Type O Positive Marker Grease? lmk if anybody's heard of it... and if so what do u think is better hater sauce/dow 33/type O + marker grease?

When I was in Orlando last weekend, the manager of Kingman technical services was using Dow33 on the VS's. I personally use Gold Cup on all of my Spyder's. I've tried all types of lubes on them and from my experience the Gold Cup worked out best for them -

I used to use "marker shine" for my lube in my spyders.. It wasnt a Oil base but worked realy well.... only issue it was was that it would turn black after like 2000 cycles LOL...

Dow 33 FTW
