I've never heard ANYTHING about graphite before. While throwing tons of oil in your marker isn't going to help it shoot better, paintball gun oil *is* the correct lubricant. Unless you seriously over use it, oil will not do anything bad to your marker.

I personally oil my gun after every other game or thereabouts.

Oiling your marker is not going to hurt anything as long as you use the correct oil.Paintball marker oils that is.
I belive what you may of heard is oil ruining the RATCHET.
We have done some serious testing on the A50G on this topic.
Useing oil in the inturnals of the cyclone is not reccomemned .The tests concur that oiling the ratchet severly deplletes the life span of said part.
As for the proper oiling of your marker.A few drops down into the ASA and then Dry fireing it with the Barrel off should suffice.
After every Use it is reccomeneded to dis assemble and clean and lube all recipacating parts. i will post the link to our testing .Oiling of Ratchets in the A5 Marker These tests were done a few times by diffrent members. J.D.

The best oil, for my money, is Gold Cup. It's light, formulated especially for paintball, and cheap. As far as graphite goes, I've heard horror stories about guys using too much and messing up various O-rings. If you want to create the same effect, use a spray called "Ms. Moly." It's used by marksmen to increase accuracy and extend barrel life. Use it on the bolt-carrier part of the power tube, and the inside of your barrel. It works great.

graphite is just horrible

it will wear away your internals faster than oil b/c it has a higher efficiency of wearing things away (like sand paper)

its basically lubeing your gun w/sandpaper


oil plus is smoother so it wont restrict movement between parts

I know you SHOULD use the recomended lube for your marker or a paintball approvered lube. But in a pinch, can baby oil be used as a substitute?

for a good lube you can also use a light weight car oil ... car oil is made for changing temperatures and actually does better in cold conditions ...

I dont use any lube or oil at all on my marker .. I have no moving orings in my blowback... i have an oringless delrin bolt and split fire orings on my hammer/striker which is made from a delrin type material. no need to lube either one. works great! love it! less maintanace and no worrys about bad or swollen orings.
