Received my first Luxe, need some help...

What's up guys,

Today I just received my first luxe (1.0 with 2.0 bolt, eyes, and board) through a trade here on the nation, and to my surprise, it was incredibly beat up... I was aware of some of the scratches that were on it, but was blown away by how horribly the gun was taken care of. The eyes were completely caked (wish I was exaggerating) with old paint, the grips were torn pretty badly, the button on the back is almost completely chipped off, the barrel/inserts filled with dirt and paint, and the gun basically had dirt or paint in every crevice of the gun. After cleaning the entire gun, I have some questions, being a first time owner with a shaky introduction.

-Starting with the eyes, besides using q-tips, what are some good ways to clean the eyes?

-Next, I received a tube of hater sauce. From what I've read here, it seems that dow 33 is the correct type of lube to use for this bolt. Any recommendations other than sl33k or gr33se? Low temperature is not an issue for me, living in Arizona and Southern California.

-When I screw my tank in and air the gun up, I get a huge leak in the grip frame, which seems to be a common occurrence from what I've seen. Is my best bet to just turn down the pressure on the reg? If there are other troubleshooting tips, I would love to hear them.

Are there any other precautions I should be taking before using my luxe in a game? I have tried my best to search for as much information as I could, and I would love to hear everyone's input. Hopefully I can get her shooting smoothly as soon as possible. Thanks in advanced to everyone who helps out!

Use rubing alchohol and qtip a for the eyes. From the sounds of it, I'd completely rebuild the marker with new orings. Reset the board to default settings and up the dwell to 16. Zero out the reg and adjust it over a chrono until you get to the desired velocity. Basic dow33 is fine for the bolt. Feel free to use that hater sauce on the outer static rings.

Thanks for the help man, I really appreciate it!

use Factory Orings for the power core. a massive gush of air from the frame area could be the frame to body oring. i would remove the frame and inspect to see if the oring is in good condition, you could try however by zeroing out the reg and airing up the gun if the gush is there then the issue is the frame to body oring. if the leak stops then the reg pressure was set too high.

i would stick to the factory lube as well.

Hater sauce is horrible.

I use Lurker Lube or Pooty Poo and like both.

in games the eyes may fall off, try putting a rubber band around the outside of the eyes to keep them from falling off and you loosing them, I'm not much of a luxe expert, I just know how to take care of a marker, just to be safe I would rebuild the whole marker, who knows how old/beat up those o-rings are.

Watch some strip down videos, watch them a couple of times. Remember this 3 letters LLL, Luxes Love Lube. Lube after every game day, it takes 5 mins and they are a bullet proof system. A lot of people will recommend dow 33 or greese they are the same. If you are in a hot weather stick with those.

If you find yourself having bolt stick or shoot down during cold weather use monkey poo. I live in Canada so it's all monkey poo for me my luxe still shoots at -5C and doesn't break paint. Take care of it and it will take care of you.
