Demon Lube

Hey nation,

I just wanted to know what everyone uses for Lube in there Demon? I have heard many different types and wanted to know which I should get. Does it vary per Demon?

I got my gun used and it didn't come with any lube. I'll have to order some Dow55 online, my local shop doesn't have any lol

Monkey Poo. I had horrible luck with the 55. Never understood why 55 was recommended for a spool, but I heard they used to have issues with an oring not sealing right in the engine and switched to 55 to get it to swell up and seal. I haven't run into that problem yet since switching lube, and 20,000 of my 30,000 total shots have been while using monkey poo.

i use dow 55 on the non- moving parts to swell the orings, and have been using vaseline on the bolt. its starting to get warm here so not sure how vaseline will hold up in the heat.

Thanks for all your input. I used Dow55 yesterday on the gun and it worked great all night of play! I'll be sticking with that until it doesn't work anymore lol.

Should I use that same lube for the reg? Or should I pick something up like Marmalade, Hater Sauce, Eclipse Grease, etc..

If it's working then I'd leave it be. The 55 will serve you well when it gets cold up there in T-Bay anyway.

Why vaseline? It is petrol based and will deteriorate orings. Monkey poo or lurker lube seem like much better overall options.

sigh.

Vaseline will not deteriorate the o-rings. Petroleum-based products will erode natural rubber. O-rings are not made of rubber.

orings and vaseline

Think of it like this. The engine in your car is full or orings, seals and gaskets. What do you put in it to lube it? Petroleum products for the most part
