there is a screw on the bolt that makes it top cocking, it might take some muscles but twist while pulling and it should come out.

Make sure you oil your bolt before you put it back in your gun though

If you have an ACS bolt you don't want to oil it. The ACS bolts are delrin and if you put oil on delrin it will swell and cause recocking issues.

I oiled my ACS with no problems, but its probably better to avoid it. Only low grade delrin will swell with oil, but knowing kingman they might use different types each time...

Yea, it's probably hit or miss, but I would avoid it if possible.

Just the striker. And if you haven't already, wouldn't be a bad idea to break the gun down and make sure everything is clean.

i have cleaned it out. ive cleaned it twice, when i chopped a couple of balls. the striker is the thing in the lower tube right under the bolt, right? and do i just oil the o-ring, or the whole thing?

Yes that is the striker, make sure you are using a paintball oil, and put a few drops on the oring it doesnt really hurt to spread it out a bit over the rest of the striker but isnt necesary.

oiling your gun is important and very cheap as a little oil goes a long way. see if your field you play at sells any make sure it is for paintball markers. Gold Cup is a name to look for. if you brake a ball in a game you can pull a squeejee through the feed neck and the barrel or just unscrew the barrel and run it just through the barrel. after you are done playing for the day then brake down the gun and clean individual parts, the pilot is easy to due.
