06-01-2008, 02:30 PM
Ok so I just got done after a good day of paintballing and I am wondering what I all have to clean? Do I just do what it shows in this video? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqWfahkyKsM Because I think I had about 1 chop but I am not sure. But if I did do I have to take the reciever halfs apart to clean the chop or coud I just take the bolt out and clean it?:confused:

take the strip pin out, take bolt out, ram a squegge throw it, clean off bolt, get q_tips for harder to reach places, and if you haven't done it after a while drop some oil down the ASA, dry fire 30 times.
and um...all i really do, make sure everything is tighted after a day of play (lossened up something before diving into bunkers :()

Ok so I use the same squegee I use to put through my barrel as I do for the gun? And how many drops do I put down the ASA?
Thanks for the help ^^^ Those are the only questions I have. =]

Ok I will try that but i wanna make sure it doesnt hurt my gun in any way. Should I use this kind of squeegee http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/links/link.jsp;jsessionid=5XKD4FGGN5US5LAQBBISCOVMCAEFEI WE?id=0024855215247a&type=product&cmCat=froogle&cm_ven=data_feed&cm_cat=froogle&cm_pla=0360103&cm_ite=0024855215247a&_requestid=89954

I like passing the rubber ones. They leave it squeeky clean!
About the oil down the ASA....you do it about every 5 days of play. It'll oil everywhere air passes by and 2 or 3 dropes should be enough.

What's the ASA? I just opened up my gun for the first time, oiled the Oring from the bolt, opened up the main spring compartment and oiled them there too.
As for squeegee, would you just take out the Bolt (when on the field) and squeegee from one end to the other? Or would that damage the rubber ball stoppers?

Thats fine, nothing will happen to the rubber stoppers (detents) Paintballs skim thru them all day.
The ASA is where u screw on ur air tank. drop a few drops of oil into the hole and screw on ur tank. thats it.
