For me i do every 10 cases, sometimes more. I got my ego in july and didn't lube it till october and i play like 2 times a week. What i did tho was at least clean off the bolt and the marker from any paint. For lubing wise you only need to lube the regulators (LPR and HPR) and the rammer. For the regulators i would use dow33 if you don't have it you can use vasaline on it. And for the rammer use the gun oil that they give you. Also you can put very little oil on the bolt orings as well. Keep the ego clean and lubed, and she'll perform like a champ for you.

don't use WD-40.

Do not use WD-40 on any paintball gun. It will eventually eat the o-rings, as it is actually a solvent, not a lube. LoL. It may work for awhile, but eventually you're going to get problems.

And lube the bolt every 3 pods? Do you stop in the middle of every game to lube your bolt? That is a REDICULOUS amount of oil. Not to mention, over-oiling will result in oil in your barrel, which reduces accuracy. Once a day is more like it...

Silly Rabbit. That's not how you take care of an Ego.

...Right up until it began leaking out of every available orifice because the WD 40 raped your orings and killed your noid, right?

When I had an ego I oiled it after every day of play.
