Question Clone GT Full Service Maintenance Frequency?

I know the manual says to service your drivetrain every 10 cases (I do this after everyday of play) and to service your regulator every 25 cases (I do this after every 10 cases) but the manual does not say anything about servicing the rest of the gun. IE subplates, ASA, etc.
Is this something I should be doing and if so how often? Is it not necessary? Does it void any warranty rules? Are MacDev tech's only allowed to do this?

subplates do not need servicing, what you are doing is perfect!

Like James said, what you are doing is the right answer. I don't recommend opening up the sub plates, pulling the grip or ASA unless there is a problem. Give the drive a little attention after every day by wiping it down, relubing it very lightly with militia lube, and put it back together. It should take 2 minutes once you have done it 4 or 5 times. Ensure the bolt tip is clean and almost dry, and check the screws that hold the ASA and frame to ensure they are tight as well. I don't recommend servicing the regulator unless there is a problem or you get 25 or more cases of paint through it. Feel free to visit www.macdev.net/forum for more tips or if you need assistance from one of us Macdev techs.

It's not recommended. Don't open the noid unless there is a problem with it, and only if you feel you are qualified/brave enough to do it. That's like open heart surgery to a marker.
Or like kicking a sleeping Doberman in the nuts while wearing a steak necklace at your neighbor's house when they're not home.

Bolt orings should be serviced often. You dont HAVE to do it after every day of play but it wont hurt.

Regulator orings dont need service as much, 10 cases is a great number but you can go further. The idea is to just keep the inside of the regulator clean of gunk.

Noid should not ever need to be serviced. You should never have problems with the noid, but if you ever do.. make sure its a last ditch effort and be prepared to replace it with a new unit. They are packed from the factory with the correct grease and do a pretty good job of staying sealed and not getting gunked up.

Asa I would do maybe once a season. Pull the pin out and re grease the orings, make sure everything is clean.

^ Good to know.

didn't wanna touch the solenoid unless it was safe to do so. Im meticulous when it comes to servicing and maintaining the things I own.

at worst you'll have to replace the outside orings on the solenoid for leaks (which happen rarely, if at all). You never need to the solenoid up.
