Recommended oil

Ok Please make it stop...just go to..http://www.tippmann.com/pdfs/products/A5/a5manual.pdf
and there you will read this right from Tippmann themselves... Cleaning & Maintenance
To clean your paintball marker use a damp towel with
water to wipe off paint, oil, and debris. We recommend
using a premium gun oil (Hoppes #9 gun oil) to maintain
your marker in good working condition. To oil all internal
parts, put 2 or 3 drops of oil in the tank adapter, then
install the CO2 tank and shoot the marker. We also
recommend using white lithium grease on the barrel oring,
safety o-ring and tank o-ring.

So there you go SEAL-1 Here is another view from the manufacturer themselves.

i have heard everything from air tool oil to vegetable oil.
i live in a place where paintball is not very popular so can i pick up an alternative at Wal-Mart or something?

Why do not use real paintball oil ? It's like 5 bucks for a bottle, and that last for years.

Pick a bottle of gold cup or anything like this and you'll be fine for your A-5.

the main guideline is that you generally want to stay away from petroleum-based oils.

variants of synthetic air tool oil are what 90% of paintball companies repackage as their own brand of oil.

grease is another animal altogether.

WD-40 stands for water dispersal type 40. It is meant to repel water from rust prone iron and steel materials. Like Rain-Ex for metal.
