Question Scratch in bolt guide housing

I recently purchased a used axe on the nation. And unfortunately the seller failed to mention a scratch/gouge in the the bolt guide housing. I was wondering if this will affect performance in any way?


It's to the left, running perpendicular to the center line of the gun, before the big air passage

As long as it's not deep enough to allow air through or gouge an o-ring, you should be ok... Have you tried shooting it yet?

Yeah I took it to the field on Sat. It performed pretty well but I think I was getting a spike in fps periodically. It seemed to shoot 265-275 with an occasional 255 or 285

As long as the bolt guide makes a good seal with those walls, I think it should be OK. No moving parts touch the inside of the body there. See if there are any leaks when it's gassed up. Pressurize it normally and put your ear near the feed neck to listen for leaks.

How might something like this happen? Trapped debris? Improper lube job?

Most likely trapped debris. I have a small bit of wear from swabbing my breach out with a dirty swab mid-game one time. Not deep wear, but enough that it wore the anno off in the breach in a tiny straight line.

Ok guys, just got around to listening for leaks and the only thing I hear is the same seashell effect that I hear before I engage the air. So I guess no leaks

Yep, that shouldn't cause any problems. As long as it's not leaking and you put a little lube on it before you play, you should be fine.
