PM7 two years without shooting

Just bought a super clean Pm7 but it hasnt been shot in two years. Besides the bolt orings should I look at anything else that might cause problems?

Whenever I get a marker that's been standing still for a long time (which is usually the case), I just rebuild the whole thing.

Start from a clean slate. Change every oring, open up the solenoid and clean it out and set it to stock settings.

You'd be surprised, I'd take it all apart, wipe it down, put a fresh coat of lubricant on everything, zero out the regs and see if it works. You may not need to replace all the seals per se. Definitely clean everything off, and if you are comfortable with it, clean out the solenoid. While it doesn't have an LPR, I recently purchased a 2007 PMR that had been sitting without being used for years. All I did was clean everything VERY throughly including the noid, put fresh coat of lubricant on it, and got it shooting just fine without any leaks.

Yeah I'd absolutely avoid replacing every seal. Theres probably nothing wrong with the majority of them. Remove/lube both regulators and remove/lube the fuse bolt.

Edit: I revived this one a bit, my bad didn't see the date.

Two years is not that long for orings. Most of them have a shelf life well over 5 years. Lubed up im willing to bet they last longer. The only one that you may find that just seems to deteriorate over time is the urethane 007 or whatever it is in your hyper 2/hyper 3. You'll know it's gone if you get a leak from the vent hole on your reg.

New battery and lube might be all you need.

Worst advice ever, and removing that solenoid is more likely to get you a leak from the seal that will be tough to get rid of.
