Arrow Used Gladiator

I might be buying a used Gladiator....

The thing is, I looked in the top of it and had dirt in there. The reg oviously wasn't taken good care of, but I might be able to get a good deal on it because of that.

Is there a "rebuild kit" or something? I'm going to want to replace all the seals/o-rings and re-lubricate it....

What all do I need?

Thanks

Talking Vital offers a Gladiator Rebuild service

Its cheap, includes return shipping and will replace all the "consumable" parts (seat, spring, orings) in your Gladiator.

The reg quickly returns to you ready to play.

I dont think you will be very pleased with its performance whether or not you get a rebuild kit. Even with the kit, the gladiator reg will continue to be very susceptible to dirt intake. You can always try to keep it well cleaned and lubed, and hope for the best.

But as long as he doesn't actually pack dirt into the reg, it will work.

Its silly to say that "dont think you will be very pleased with its performance whether or not you get a rebuild kit". Its generally recognized that the Gladiator is a top reg. Even when playing on a sand/mud field, I and my team never had problems from "dirt intake" LOL

The reg's design is thoughtfully simple and easy to maintain at its peak. The only thing a rebuild will not correct is a scratch in the piston bore. If that were to happen, it would be the first I have ever seen.
