Hi, I was wondering about what type of grease I could use on my Invert Mini.

The manual says "Do NOT use petroleum-based lubricants in the lubrication of this marker. Teflon or silicon (NON-spray only) lubricants may be used for lubrication for the bolt area only of the main housing." So, my question is whether on not I can use TechT Gun Sav on my Invert Mini. I thought at first that I wouldn't be able to use it, because I thought it was a petroleum-based grease. Since then I have seen a video--on youtube--posted by Techtpaintball (http://tinyurl.com/3xv4qnl), in the video it seems that they use their gun sav to lubricate the bolt.

What is the problem with lubricating the mini with a petroleum-based lubricant? Is TechT's Gun Sav a petroleum-based lubricant?

Thanks in advance.

Petrolium based lubes can damage/degrade the o-rings...which would be bad. They also can gum up & get sticky over time, causing the bolt to jam.
Any of the Dow 33 (white lithium) lubes will work fine on a mini, as will the techT stuff & Shocktech Gun Butter.

So, the TechT Gun Sav isn't petroleum-based?

No. Because of the pertolium vs. oring issue, most purpose made paintball lubes arent petrolum based.
But some guns still "like" different lubes...alot of the high end fast shooters work better with the with lithium - I forget the exact reason, but I believe it has something to do with how fast the grease breaks down during rapid fire use. The faster guns need a more durable grease.
Gun Butter is similar to the Tech T stuff, & I use it all the time on my Mini with no problems so far.
