I believe the difference is that gun oil is peroleum based, this will eat away your o-rings. I don't know what the paintball/pnuematic oils are based from, vegetable oil, etc...who knows. Anyway it is safe for your seals and o-rings and that is why it is used as opposed to the gun oil.

Petroleum based oils will attack the paintball shells as well, causing them to distort, or making them to soft to fire from the marker without breaking inside the barrel...or even streaking the firing chamber on the way out, hosing up the next shot as well. Im sure there are amny differences...but the two examples in the last two posts are the ones that im familiar with.
