finally got to use my 2012 fenix in a game today everything worked fine but now I would like to clean/lube my gun. The manual only tell you how to take the marker apart for cleaning and most videos only show how to oil o-rings. I have no idea what to lube with Hater sauce and how much to use. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You should be using Oil made for paintball markers or air tools. DO NOT USE LUBE. Goldencup is supposed to be good. Really to clean your marker just take the bolt out, wipe it down, put a swab down the barrel and out the back till no residue is left behind. Before next use oil the bolt O rings with just a dab of oil

in a spyder, the only thing you would use grease (lube encompasses grease and oil) would be your regulator. everything else would be oiled.

just pull out your bolt wipe it down, clean the breech, put the bolt back in. you're done. every few cases, put a couple drops of oil in the asa and dry fire a few times to get the oil where it needs to go.

thats about it

I use grease because it's less messy than oil

grease anything you would normally oil, but don't go overboard, too much grease or oil will gum up your action

I sort of do both -

Any O-Ring that's intended to move or rammer that's intended to slide across something metal - Oiled.

Any O-Ring that's intended to seal, or be set and forgotten (O-ring swelling) I hit with Dow33 or Dow55, just..not excessively.

This usually breaks down to "If it make the gun shoot -oil, if it regulates air pressure - lube." but that's not a steadfast rule...as I still need to get my hands messy with a Spool valve marker.

If we want to go there, I had an excellent home made Marinara sauce recently, had a bit of bite to it as well, made for some very tasty markers

I suggest marinara when it comes to saucing your marker.

From a previous poster I only started with just a little but I still think I used too much because crap got everywhere... now its completely stopped working???... My parents just got me this for XMas and if its already broke they are going to kill me.... any suggestions? PLZ! :confused:
