Lubing tribal

HOwzit, I have a fluster, I think. It is black with red flames on the side. I was just wondering if I could lube my tribal by putting a few drops of oil in the place you screw in the tank? I got my tribal like 5 or 6 years ago, used it once and broke the battery connecter. My girlfreinds dad fixed it, I took it out to play, and it worked dope. Only thing was it was shooting kind of up and down. Lke 270, 285, 292. Is this normal? Thanks for the help. Oh yeah, what kind of compressed tank would you guys recomend me getting, and also what loader should I get to match the firing rate of the gun. Thanks for the help.

If it has stock A.O.C. and stock hpr ... Then yes they were very inconsistent.
They have several alternatives now, threw Haveblue and Edwin.
Use anywhere from a 47/3000 to a 114/4500 ....... all preference , I prefer a Crossfire 68/4500 myself.
Again the loader is preference .... seeing as it a stock gun (13-15bps cap) I would say a VL.

So would it be okay to put a few drops of lube in the my drop forward where I screw in the tank and shoot it through the gun to lube it, or do I have to take it apart? Thanks

One more question, what is the operating pressure of a tribal? I was wondering if I should get a hp or lp tank? Pretty sure its hp

between 175-250 hpr......and 60-110 lpr.

ive always used a high pressure tank ,the low pressure seems to starve it for air sometimes
