How often should you service your creed?

How often should I service my creed? I'm guessing every 2-3 cases I should re lube the rammer and the bolt. But what about the rest of the gun? And how often is a complete strip down and replacing things like the schrader necessary to keep the gun working great. If all this is in the manual I apologized before hand. I Just want to make sure I get to know this marker very well so if I run into problems I can take care of them, and most of all to be able to prevent them.

Honestly, if it doesn't break, don't fix it. As long as consistency and the operation of the marker are fine oiling the rammer o-rings and putting a drop or two of oil in the asa is enough to keep the creed going strong.

Ill second this comment..

I used to have an ego, and would break that dam thing down every other weekend...

I now have a creed and have had it for about 4 months now. Since buying it, ive never had to break anything down to clean it.. Only thing ive touched would be the rammer and bolt. Nothing else has needed or seen maintenance since it came out of the case..

So id say dont touch it unless you have to..

Most poppits only require a few drops of oil on the rammer and a couple of drops in the ASA. My 2005 Ego ran non-stop for three years and over 100 cases of paint without every breaking down using this method. The Creed is supposed to be even better so you should be fine with this method too.

Sounds awesome thanks guys I appreciate it. Is it okay to use "Hater Marmalade Lube" in creeds? I used this on my egos and loved it.

I recommend not useing either.
I would use Vasoline or the oil supplied with the marker which is standard paintball gun oil.

Thumbs up

I'd use gun oil on everything. But vas on the reg is a good idea. I'll do that as well. I'll use vas on the LPR as well.

Use vasoline on all orings, Shim stack, lpr ect.
Do not oil or grease the shredder valve. It will lubricate it self.
Also do not grease the oring on the cup face of the LP poppet.
You can grease the inner shaft oring on the poppet shaft and on the tail shaft of the valve. But again not grease the cup face oring.
This will cause it to leak and not seal up.

You can go to target or any store and buy the travel size vasoline. This will last you a while ad it's 1.50 to buy it.

I actually run a very very very light coating of slick honey on my rammer. It seems to work better than oil for some reason(way smoother). Basically only enough to give the rammer a moist look. You don't want excess grease getting into your noid so you have to be careful. Oil always works well if you're inexperienced. On the regs vaseline will works great but if you happen to have gallons of some other grease I don't see a problem with it. Just remember, more isn't better. People usually use too much grease which causes more problems then not using enough.


The creed doesn't require a lot of love......it's built to dish out hate MWahahaha.
