axe lube help

Hey guys I was lubeing my axe for the first time today useing the lube they give you in the parts kit. That was my first time lubeing a gun so I didnt know the right amout of lube to use so I went over it with a thin layer and then didnt feel like I put enough on so I went back and put a little more on. Im a little worried if I didnt put enough or that I put too much and I dont want to get bolt wear or enternal wear etc. ( or any other kind of problems). Your thoughts on this? Thanks.

You just need a very thin layer, a little goes a long ways.

Honestly you should be fine, but if you feel that you really put too much on, just take the bolt back out, wipe it off with a clean paper towel, and then re-apply a thin layer.

Look on youtube, someones made a video. Then, you can see the amount that you are "supposed" to use. I started using monkey poo lube too, that stuff that was included is ****.

It's an axe. If you overlubed it even by a little bit, the excess will get shot out.

Just lube, air up and dryfire without the barrel. Sounds weird or inconsistent? could be too much or too little.

After the first 15-20 shots, if it sounds inconsistent, you may have put on too much. If it sounds more or less the same, add a barrel and some paint in a loader and go out to chrono to make sure everything's working as it should be.


Too much lube:

will cause bolt stick
velocity inconsistencies
low velocity
requires a higher pressure to run at than before


Too little lube:
will make gun have a higher pitch
will wear parts down and cause leaks and eventually velocity inconsistencies which can be irreversible without having new parts purchased.

Well, it's a poppit so it will fire without lube without lube and not have BS or anything USUALLY. Just cover the oring ( make sure lube is in the grooves) of the oring, don't put to mutch
