They use it on Morotcycles and also might find it at an Army surplus.

I would advise against using Tri-Flow on the bolt. Since the bolt is connected to the ram, this allow the tri-flow to drop down into the ram area and when tri-flow mixes with dow 55, it weakens the grease and creates a mess. From experience I know, not just saying it. I never lube my bolt and it works great. AS for lube, Geezus is right, use nothing but Dow55 to lube the entire gun, do not use slick honey or dow33.
As for the leak, I'm guessing it's the cupseal, the front ram oring (smaller oring), or the ram sleeve orings. First thing I would do is change the poppet and lube the poppet oring. Then if it still leaks, lube and change the front ram oring. If the leak persists, I would then say it's the ram sleeve oring which sucks because you have to disassemble the whole marker just to get out the ram sleeve. Let me know if you fix the problem. Later.
