I have a couple questions about some O'Rings here...
Firstly, with the exception of an air leak; how do you know when to change an O'ring? Obviously if it's cracked or torn you would change it but is there something else I should look for? A time period/lifespan?
Secondly, last night I stumbled upon the Luxe O'ring Guide from one of the threads on the LUXE-Ultimate information thread. It had a lot of great information on it that was extremely valuable but I felt like there were some areas which were a little vague. I ended up doing some more research on the type of o'rings that I needed to fit my Luxe but I had a difficult time finding confirmation that the o'rings that I was about to purchase were going to allow my Luxe to perform at its optimal level.
After searching around in circles for about an hour I felt pretty confident that what I was ordering was in fact the correct o'rings according to the specifications listed on the guide. However, there were multiple variations of o'rings which were extremely similar to the ones listed on the guide that definitely made me feel uneasy but I made the purchase anyway.
So, I was hoping that you guys who have experience ordering o'rings in this manner could give me your opinion on ordering from a site like this;
i.e. Should I just buy the o'ring kit DLX offers?
Should I expect a lesser quality of o'ring from one of these sites in comparison to an o'ring found in a DLX o'ring kit?
From what I could tell it seems like the o'rings I am to expect should be on par with the Luxe O'ring kits but I just wanted to make sure before I start replacing the o'rings I bought last night in my gun.
Here is a list of the o'rings that I purchased. Do these look like the correct o'rings? The ones I am most concerned about were the Buna ones, these seemed like they were the standard ones so I went with them but there were a couple variations.
*Don't worry about quantity as there were minimums for some o'rings that essentially allows me to rebuild my gun 5 times, if I did everything correctly.
O'ring guide, for the lazy:
Please excuse the wall of text, I would like to expand on the o'ring guide and make it a little more user friendly for someone, like me, who is just starting out in the sport of paintball.
I would like to put together a collection of links that would send the individual to the page that has the specific o'ring for each different o'ring in the core so that there is no doubt that the o'ring is the correct one.. but I need some people that are more knowledgable in the area of o'rings to verify that the o'rings I listed above are the correct o'rings..
