You can also lightly lube the piston in the solenoid, and when I say LIGHTLY it MEANS VERY Lightly.
What do you do if your solenoid blows the piston and the seal out the bottom including breaking the retaining ring that held the piston in place?
I only use Duracell batteries and I replace them each time I play. I know this sounds a bit excessive, but I replace all my batteries every time I play to ensure that I don't have battery problems. It wasn't regulator creep either as my Axe is well broken in and rarely rises above 190psi even in Oklahoma's summer heat of 109 degrees.
