where to oil?

ok, so i've heard that you should oil up your marker before every outting... my question is: what part of your marker do you actually oil? how much?

definately agreed there, make sure to get the bolt and dont forget to check the orings for ANY damage.
also make sure to check your guns manual, they should have good reliable info.
make sure you are putting just enough (do not have a puddle of oil splashing around in your gun.)

Threads and stricker? And what about 3-4 drops in the ASA and dry firing?

a few drops in the asa and dry firing works on many paintguns.
But some require more maintenance than this.
I know for many guns with exposed recocking mechanisms I like to put some oil through the slot for the recocking pull in addition to the few drops in the asa.

You should refer to the owners manual or at least tell us what marker you have.

asa is the threaded part on the gun that you screw your tank into.

you only need to drop oil in the ASA and dry fire.. dont bother with taking crap apart to oil other things.. a dry fire will run through your marker just fine..

look in ur manual or something we dont have all your answers. (though some guns may not have a striker, not sure)
[a striker "strikes the valve in some fasion, allowing it to release the air.]
and how is synthetic blend a good oil, its for a freakin CAR, not GUN. I sontknow if thats a good idea, plus it sounds expensive compared to gun oil.

only used approved paintball oil, most other oils will eat away o-rings.

if there is no guage on your gun, or it's broken, just stick oil in the ASA (air source adapter [where you screw your tank into]) if no, you will have to field strip your gun and oil the bolt and striker then let two drops down the striker tube to get the valve.

no, if you have an on-gun reg with a working gauge, and you want the gauge to continue working, don't just drop oil in the ASA and dry fire.
