ok thanks, but i have the expansion chamber not a reg. should i do it anyway to oil cup seal?

The cupseal is delrin and requires no lubrication. The valve pin on the other hand does. If you read the threads above that I found for you you'll see that some oil that part, some use grease lube(marker specific lube). Every few uses or after a long day at the field I take the entire gun apart to clean and lube it. Good luck.

ok thanks, i did read the links, thanks for them. I can lube the valve pin by droppping a few drops of lube in the ASA, instead of taking the whole gun apart right?

ya i have the same question as ^^^ i have been able to lube my striker and all the other ones but the valve i can't seem to find a way to get that little piece out so i was reading and i guess people will put lube in the ASA and when it fires it'll push the lube unto the valve..im not to sure just wanna clarify before i try anything stupid.

You can use that method, just take off the barrel so it doesn't get coated with oil then dry fire approx. 3 times. You really should disassemble the marker on a regular basis to clean & lube it.

Yea, i disassemble the marker to lube the striker orings and swab the 2 chambers with first a paper towel, then my squeegee. Im not sure how to get to my valve to oil those.. If someone could tell me it would be great. I guess i could drop oil in the ASA, but it would be awesome if someone would tell me how to do the old fashion way

thnx alot

Make sure there is no pressure in the marker and the tank is removed. Loosen the 2 screws on either side of the expansion chamber where it attaches to the va. Remove the expansion chamber. Loosen the screw that holds the va in place next to the trigger guard. Pull out the va slowly and you will have the valve spring, pin, and cup seal. Oil the valve pin (I use dow 33 grease) and the o-rings on the va. Reassemble. Kingman doesn't reccommend oiling the valve pin in their tutorial videos that I'm aware of, but I lube it since it is a moving metal-to-metal part.

ok thanks, what is the VA? yes a noobtastic question. and which way do you pull out the valve, towards you or away from you

VA = vertical adapter. You will be removing the valve pin, not the valve. The valve is a stationary piece. You will lube the valve pin which goes in and out of the valve when struck by the hammer. Did you read up on Otter's web site under Spyder Pages? I didn't think so.
