Oils move and seep which is why I don't typically use them. As for greases, super lube, TechT, molykote 111, molykote 55, Tamiya Cera Grease, just to name a few. Basically any lube that is silicone based or PTFE based is fine.

Don't put anything in the back of the cylinder. You will have nothing but problems if you do.

For lube, use enough to wet your seals, that is it. Basically minimal. You could put a small amount on the outside of the bucking, but not necessary. Never put any on the inside of the bucking. Will wreck your accuracy and hop.

As for your power dropping, likely damaged oring or your springs are shit quality, or the springs are settling.

Oh right WASP pistons have cup seals. Still light lube around the outside surface of the cup seal.

Hmm. Have you tested the seal between the cylinder head and barrel assembly?

What bbs are you using?

Hmm I don't remember who makes valken accelerate. Though I would grab bls bbs. Heavyweight BBs (0.36g+) — Infantryshop USA

Valken is the fucking devil. I am not getting into it. Don't ask, stems from when I played paintball.

Anyway, I would also check to make sure your bucking is super clean and doesn't have any oil or grease on it. A little oil will play havoc with numbers.

You can order small quantities from mcmaster. Though would be easier to go to a bolt and screw supplier that is local to you. Not lowes or home depot. I know for a fact HD will not have anything that small. (I work for home depot, and I order all the little packs of screws and shit on the hardware aisle.)
