Step 8: Lubricating Properly

It is important to lubricate your marker in the right areas and with the right kind of lubricant.

If your marker came with a small bottle of lubricant, by all means, use that.

If it did not come with any, i suggest using a pneumatic tool lubricant, it's not petroleum based (so it won't corrode O-Rings) and lets face it, a paintball marker is a nail gun that shoots balls filled with goo.

You must lubricate:

The chamber around the hammer.

The hammer itself.

The front plastic piece (and around it)

And it helps to keep your valve system nice and clean by putting a few drops of lubricant through the ASA into the air lines and shoot a few times with air in the system.
Nice but one issue, Never apply oil on or in the asa it can lead to oil getting into your co2 tank and causing a nasty explosion that can seriously hurt or even kill you. look it up on youtube
i finished mine off by wet sanding with 2000 grit sand paper .
Good job... But it's a tipmann. Polishing the interior does aid proformance, but isn't needed.
I believe it may do more for preserving o-rings, i noticed it closed velocity deviation on the paintballs by about 15 fps. That could also be caused by different weather on the testing days.
I didn't even notice an improvement, I mean yeah, it's a slicker surface now, but in terms of on the field, noticable change in performance? meh
Nice idea, but two things: include an exploded diagram of the gun, so people might have an idea of how to dis/reassemble it. Is there any real benefit to polishing the internals? These are some of the most reliable guns ever, so is this really needed?
when taking apart mine the trigger ecumenism popped out before i got a good look at is can some one send me a diagram
