i'd imagine the same maintenence as a dm or shocker, lube the regs, grease the bolt and pour a little bit of oil in the asa to keep everything running smoothly

you dont use any oil whatsoever on this gun. You dont pour any kind of oil in the ASA. Its not a spyder or AKA gun.

You dont use oil on a DM or shocker or timmy or any other high end gun currently popular either.

Well this will require Medium Maintainece.. but its not like its hard, by far the easiest around....

Simply Open up the Back of the gun with included allen wrench... Pull put the Guide <the peice u are turning Counter clockwise> Take out the bolt with your finger <if its stuck inside> Wipe both down with a Towel or Rag, Apply a Generous amount of dow to everything, making sure to get the orings. Put the Guide back in the bolt, Reinsert and tighten... the whole process should take you less than a minute... less if your rushing more if u crusing..

and liek the ego, just wipe it down with a rag after your done playing , or it gets hit so it dont get Stained..

and jUst relube the Regs / lpr as needed... <probly evey 5-6 cases for best performance...>

i put oil into the asa of all my guns and they work fine, thats what my manual said to do.... or was it the manual for my dads cocker? i dunno but it works so i'm not gonna stop doing it, its supposed to keep the regs lubricated and air ways running smoothly

yes, some regs use oil, like the Sidewinder, but a lot do not, they need grease, like Dow33 or 55, Slick Honey, etc.

I can almost guarantee the manual does not say to use oil

It may work fine, but it may be doin more harm than good for 1, or not helping at all 2.
