Wow - very impressed

So, I spent last night tearing down / cleaning / lubing / oiling my new (used) Geo. I haven't even aired this thing up yet and I'm already really impressed.

I have never owned a marker this well designed, and the fit and finish are leaps and bounds beyond any paintball product I've ever worked on. Well done, Eclipse. Can't wait to get on the field with this baby.

Oil *is* a lube, just like grease is a lube. "Lube" is just short for lubricant, and both oil and grease are lubricants.

I don't know why so many people say lube when they really mean grease, but it isn't accurate - it avoids confusion if you refer to oil and grease, rather oil and "lube".

So to clarify, you should only use grease with the Geo.

Quick question: should I not be using grease on my Ego?

You should only use oil on the rammer and bolt o-rings.

Use grease on the reg piston head o-rings.

Oil is used on the piston neck o-rings (found in the base of the reg).

Static o-rings can be oiled or greased - it's not critical which you use.

I just happen to be a graphite lubricant formulator by trade, so I'll help with the definitions: Lube is short for lubricant, so that can correctly refer to both oils and greases (which are simply thickened oils).

Anyway, thanks for the concern from everyone, but no worries re the Geo. The only places I used oil were the trigger bearings and the OOPS pin, per the manual. Otherwise, all Eclipse grease all the time.

A. This is the Geo forum.
B. Maintenance for both guns is described in detail in the manuals. Read it and most of your simple questions should be answered.

Damn, you're kicking his *** in both forums, haha.

All the questions he's asked so far could easily be solved if he would bother to do some simple reading instead of relying on others to solve the problems for him.

The alternate view is if the question doesn't interest you, don't post. And by no means be insulting or rude.
