I oil the o-rings after every day of play. The delrin doesn't need oiling, but the o-rings can dry-up if not taken care off. Plus, it will run a alittle smoother as the lubrication on the o-rings will help them slide in the chamber a lot easier.

I heard Oil expands delrin slightly. But I'd Oil the Orings Myself.

Oil doesn't, water will on occassion, as water is much smaller on a molecular scale than oil and can seep into the structure of the delrin. I've actually oiled the worrblade bolt since day one (the o-rings, but when you slide it, it spread to most of the bolt anyway) and it never even tightens in the chamber, no visible expansion of the Delrin material.

No, thats only if you drop a whole bottle of oil on at a time or soak it in oil for a couple of days. Besides, even if it does swell a little, it will help reduce blowback.
