Honestly you can hold off on maintenance till you shoot another case or so. None needed at this time.

When it comes to it, use oil on the rammer orings, grease on the LPR and HPR orings, and nothing on the bolt. Even then all you really need to do is oil the rammer. The LPR and HPR can wait for 5+ cases.

I only service the hpr/lpr if I notice a change in consistency or any type if performance drop off.

like stated above only use oil on the rammer orings and I put gust a tiny bit on the bolt orings. use grease on the hpr and lpr. if you play at a dry and sandy place I would not use oil on the bolt it can attract unwanted dirt/sand into the breech causeing breech where.

^This^ Conditions play a big part in how often it should be cleaned. If you play in real sandy or wet conditions you may want to clean it more often. Egos will keep firing no matter how bad you abuse them but they are more consistent when you clean them when needed. I usually go about 10 cases unless you're getting it filthy. One thing I like to do is wipe the bolt and bore after each day of play. Dirt and felt from the process of polishing paintballs have a tendency to build up around the bolt especially if you're using a bolt with Orings like the D.A.R.T.
