Lube And Caring For a Traccer?

Didn't want to make a whole new thread for this but i couldn't find it anywhere else .

Anyway, im really OC when it comes to cleaning and keeping my markers clean. What is the best lube for a Maverick/Traccer marker (if any) and what is the best way to apply it (where on the marker)?

The internals of this marker seem pretty straight foward, i always take it apart before and after i play just to make sure everythings in tip-top shape, just curios about the lube since ive never applied any yet.

Standard PMI/Extreme Rage oil is just fine. Of course, mineral oil (the base used for many paintball oils) would be acceptable as well. Of course, if the gun is clean inside, there's really very little need for lube in the first place.

I would make sure the powertube stays clean and lubed.

The marker is spotless inside but i have always thought lube is needed no matter the condition.

Not always. If it's aluminum moving on aluminum or steel on steel, then you would be right. Otherwise, properly cut metal parts should slip right past each other without binding. You'll be able to tell this by pumping it slowly. If it feels smooth, leave it be. Otherwise, lube the hammer and bolt slightly.
