Best lube for G5 bolt stick?

I've been having a few problems with the bolt sticking. Been using the DP lube but it obviously doesn't seem to be helping. What do you guys suggest?

Well, the DP lube was your first mistake! It tends to cause issues.

try reading this thread

http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=3933734

and then read this thread (it applys to the G5, not just the G4)

Does DP not listen to customers or visit these forums?

If the DP lube sucks, why do they continue to use it on their G3, G4 and now the G5?

Unless new DP owner hangs out on forums to get help from others that recommend alternate lube, they will just dump their DP guns because I doubt DP customer service will recommend alternate greases.

I was at a local store and the sales person was telling a customer to use only the lube that in the kit with the DP E1. I was about to say something, then again hundreds of the DP guns are sold throughout the US and the same recommendation goes on.

People continuously come here and post their bolt stick issues and you guys tell them wrong lube, too much or too little.... well time for DP to fix it.

I am still using the original lube on my g5. I have shot 4 48/4500 full tanks of air to break it in and no problems yet.

Not a good comparison.

DP does not have a have huge market share in the paintball industry unless they think they do.

Companies like Empire, PE, Virtue and many others support their customers here.

Dow 33 based anything should work for most markers but I have used Monkey Poo, Dow 33 plain and virtually no bolt stick on my G3...maybe some FSDO once in a while but that's corrected easily.

Here is the secret, I have a g5 as well and a g4 and I do not have a problem with bolt stick since I started using less lube I use hater v2 and smart parts shocker lube and just a thin film is best also I store my bolts in the forward position then when you air up the the bolt slams back and then dry fire to get everything set.
