SM-1 lube?

so apparently my SM-1 didnt come with a lubed hammer. After cycling the bolt about 25 times, the inside of the lower tube has lost its anno in a few spots. What lube would you recommend for the sear/hammer? i have dow 33 on it now, but it still sounds like its scratching or dragging metal on metal. The anno wear is just a line on the very bottom(stuck my finer in, I cant feel any damage thankfully). I know that can happen over time easily, but after not even a day? I wish it came with some lube on it. It was bone dry

use gun oil (like triflow). If you want, you can add a little bit of dow33 too, but not too much.

You really shouldn't be lubing it at all. Any wear you experience in the lower tube is either dirt, or the hammer and tube forming to each other.

Should you use anything on the bolt itself? I feel like the bolt has too much friction with each pump. Maybe oring bolts are too thick?

the SM-1 is a very cheaply made sniper, although I'm sure they had the best intentions making it, their fit and finish as well as choice of materials & springing leaves a lot to be desired.

sm-1s are known to need a lot of break in time. i wouldn't put anything on the bolt.

You can swap the orings out. I do this with a lot of metal bolts.

I was thinking about swapping the bolt orings. Is it still not good to lube the bolt if the its plastic?

no lube, but polish the parts.

the gun itself is fine, smooth as butta. Its broken in now for sure, only about a case thru it now. Although it may be cheaply made it performs awesome! way better than my physco ballistic pump, and only a fraction of the cost of a CCM. My question about the lube was for the hammer, not the bolt. The bolt is a nice tight fit compared to say an ego or g6r but it still slides just fine. The bolt is delrin, 2 orings. idk why someone was mentioning metal bolts... its the hammer I was reffereing to, which came with no lube and I wasnt sure if it needed it. Now its all good, no lube anywhere except the regulator.

which parts? the hammer is already polished pretty much, the only thing that bothers me is the "shaft" the pump handle slides on (sorry, dont know the exact term for it) isnt polished, its a matte annodize finnish. Any suggestions? my 100$ physco ballistic pump had that part polished, Im concered as to why this doesnt have it or if it even matters. thanks! Ohter than that its a great gun for 280 (no reg, or asa) Very light, love the trigger and the karni front block.
