Use Dow 33/Sl33k on the bolt assembly. Read your manual or check the Ion forum stickies for a guide on maintenance. If you do not have a manual, you may download a free copy at www.smartparts.com

as gforce put it's basically Dow33 Lube repackaged in a Smart Parts bottle and doubled in price. You should be able to find the stuff you need at an Auto or Hardware store. It can also be found under the name Molykote 33. There is no good replacement for it and do not use Dow 55 based lube or gun oil and they will damage your orings.

lube anything that has an o-ring or where metal surfaces come in contact with each other.

Use a fresh battery
Put air in the tank
screw tank onto gun carefully
Load balls in the top thingy that looks like a mini football
put mask on
turn on the power button
turn on the gun........










aim at the guys in the striped shirts for extra points

Actually, NO. Lube for your ion is not personal preference. Dow55 will cause your orings to swell which is a no no on dynamic (moving) orings. Gun oil will cause the orings to eventually break down and become brittle. Dow33 is what is recommended. Dow 33 is what should be used.

Exactly why I want to start carrying a pistol on the field with me. Maybe I'm just imagining things but I swear I get shot more as a ref than I do as a player. Seems I get shot in more undesireable places, too.

Maybe, I always use refs to line up my targets

Wear protection on the field, regardless of work/play, thats just common sense
