dusting off the aka

Im going out to ball again after quitting in 08. Im pretty sure Im going to blow every oring once i air up my jmj factory viking. Should i just drop some oil in the asa and roll with it or should i take my time and rebuild the entire thing? i kinda just want to throw a few drops in it and go.
suggestions

They store very well. New battery and a few drops of oil and you are more than likely be good to go.

A few drops of oil and try it. It's probably good to go. I took mine out at the end of the summer, hadn't been used since spring a year before, and the thing was still shooting 280-285fps.

Jared is a nice guy but his fists shoot first and ask questions later.

EdgeExcal - good luck! Let us know how it goes. I have one that has been stored since 02 or 03, or so. Curious how it goes.

I lived in Richmond from 00-05, and didnt find many people in the area. This is my first post on a while, so it may say im in VA now, but now in TN.

Glad to see some AKA's still around too.
