Back when I played with my Sonix, I replaced the red oring with a regular one, and promptly had leaking issues and recocking problems. I tried everything I could but never fixed it. Finally, I had to call Kingman and they sent me a few of the red ones and it fixed them perfectly. Something about them being a different size oring than what we can normally get - metric, maybe?

However, other people never have problem with using standard orings on their strikers. Try it and see what happens...you never know!

Yeah I agree with Vike this one brings mixed resaults. But your not out anything to try it, so see if it wirks for you. I think this was brought up a few months back and alot of MR1 users said they had used the different orings with good resaults so you never know!

ive always used the red ones to be safe. i think they're $2 a piece online, but you should be able to find them for cheaper.

I'll agree with the masses...red orings should be replaced with red, they're meant to put up with the stresses of the stryker.

I never had a prob with the buna rings. I started using them after finding that for some markers, Kingman used the buna striker and bolt rings. **shrugs** Long as you keep them lubed, you shouldn't have probs with them -

Yup. They sent me 3 or 4 - it was several years ago, so I don't remember how many exactly.

It's a metric sized one, and I think made out of a different material.

They're just red Urethane orings in metric sizing... there isn't anything special about them! :rolleyes:

Call Kingman and ask them. Vike dealt with them a few years ago, and their policies on free stuff might have changed since then. Only way to know for sure is to call yourself! ;)
