Use white lithium grease on your bolt, and silicone oil for the oring on your piston and you should be good.

Just make sure you don't get lube in your hop up/barrel.

Contrary to what's been suggested;

Graphite or Moldebnum grease on the exterior of the bolt,

Silicon GREASE for the interior.

Oils are useless for cylinder lubrication after a little while, grease lasts MUCH longer.

Opinions may very but I do not believe that grease is needed on the outside of the bolt. It rides on delrin (i think) rings which is all that is needed. I have been using VSR10s for over 4 years and have NEVER greased the outside of the bolt. If you do.. dirt and gunk may stick to it causing you all sorts of problems.

As for the inside of the bolt (cylinder) use 100% silicon grease.. not oil. I use some made my Dow Corning. Apply a very thin layer where the piston rides in the cylinder and a bit on the piston o-ring.

I have a PDI v-trigger and I use a bit of white lithium grease in there. It seems to keep everything working well and, atleast I believe, lightens up the trigger pull a bit.

Nothing else needs grease. Ofcouse, you may wish to pick up some light weight 100% silicon oil or spray to clean your inner barrel. Dont get any on the hopup rubber and make sure you wipe it all out before you go shooting.

After your maintenance is done, you may need to shoot a bunch because grease could make its way out of the cylinder and onto the hopup rubber. not much you can do about that. Just pop off a bunch of bulk BBs until it starts shooting consistantly again. It may take 50 - 100 shots.

If it's a new VSR-10, there are a couple things you'll have to do, especially if yo uplan to ever upgrade it. First is to cut the stem off the cylinder head nozzle, that is the airbrake, and let's say you put in a 400fps spring, because of that thing you'll still be shooting around 330fps. Next, there is a pin holding the cylidner head on, you'll have to drill that out in order to get the head off. I've never done it, but a few buddies have had to deal with the gun.............. literally, Amos is the guy to point questions at..... if you can get him to stop taking pics of his hands for a couple mins.

The cylinder head screws off, (depending on what make your vsr is there may be a pin you have to drill out) a simple Allen key in one of the two holes in the top, brace it on the nozzle (but don't do any damage to the nozzle) and turn counter clockwise and it should screw off.

+1 to silicon grease on the inside
But I recommend synthetic grease on the outside of the cylinder, moly grease tends to attract dirt and cake up, it also gets pretty stiff in cold weather (we use lots of it at work)
I've never had any issues in 3 years of using synthetic grease on all my guns through hot and cold weather.

I spray the outside of my cylinder with dry Teflon, works great.
