Default Scratched Bolt on Spyder TL-R

Gents,

I just bought a TL-R last month and was cleaning the gun after playing on Saturday. I took the bolt out, and noticed that there are a million scratches all over it, to the point where it is worn down. Even the o-ring in front is worn a little bit. I've read about people polishing their bolts, and if polishing the bolt makes it work better, I gotta think that scratches all over it, to the point where it is worn down, can't be good for it. Is this at all normal? Have you ever heard of these things getting all scratched up? I had a ball stuck in it once (really, only once) a while ago--the first time I used it I think. And, it works fine. Really, no complaints.

So--I guess I have a couple questions: do the bolts normally get scratched, and if not, should I just replace it; once I replace it, should I oil it (I've heard you don't want to oil everything because you wind up spraying oil out which messes up the paint); why is it getting scratched up in the first place?

Thanks for the help.

Welcome...

Look at the Bible page here

Otterscustoms FAQ

That will explain the scratches.

The easiest way to oil your marker is to put 4-5 drops of oil in the ASA (where you attach the C02 tank) and fire your marker 10 or so times with the barrel off. That will send oil through out the internals. Make sure you are using a paintball marker oil. marker oil

... it's not a bad idea doing it the traditional way ... although the ASA way will work ... they're better lubing if you do it the traditional way too ... IMO

Its simple. I have a tlr, and yes it is scratched to heck. I put some lube in side it and dry fired it a couple times, and it helped stop. Keep it very well lubed

Lube your gun before and after every game...it's better for your marker.

well sanding and polishing would increase the performance of your gun also .. probably a good idea to clean it ...

I actually have a different say on the whole, "Oil in the ASA" thing. That will not oil the valve o-rings that seal between the body and the valve body, and It will also Not get any amount of Oil on the striker O-ring, or striker itself.

Just my .02 cents though..

... ^^ yeah .. neither the bolt o-rings as well .. that's why it's good to clean it from scratch .. also you get dirt and debris that collects in there .. for any particular reason ...
