Thumbs down Washed my Ego 11 in the dish washer today. FAIL FIXED pg7 update

This is the first time I have done this with my 11 but did it 100 times with my 07. I didn't add anything to the dishwasher just ran with water and it dulled the color of the parts that I washed. I didn't do the lp reg, hp reg or ram cap. It might be hard to see in the pics so I included a pic from after I bought it at the bottom. Should this have happened or is it an issue with the anno. like I said I did it a lot with my 07 and never had an issue.

Im no Jack wood, but I've gone through the manual several times and didnt find the word "dish washer".

I'm gonna guess that you basically baked you ego during the dry cycle.

I turned the dry cycle off like I always do and set it on low water temp. When I pulled it out there was blue on my hands. I know it says nothing about the dishwasher but I don't see why it would bother anno. If it got extremely hot I could understand that but it didn't

And what does a dishwasher accomplish that a rag doesn't? I mean, in the time it takes you to take your gun down far enough for it to be "dishwasher friendly(?)" you could do just as good with a cloth, and save time, not to mention your gun. Save the dishwasher for soft goods.

If you really did this then you don't deserve to own a ego. Or any gun for that matter.

And that fact that your questioning the anno quality makes it that more ridiculous.

My local woodsball field had a few muddy spots and i managed to land in one. There was mud all through the breach and in with the rammer. I just wanted to make sure i got it all out of the gun. Like i said i did this with my 07 a lot and never an issue. I couldn't find anything that says a dishwasher would damag anno unless a chemical was added so i figure it would be fine.

No Shens! I'm ashamed to say i really did this. But i know people who do this,have done this on an 07 and someone on this forum mentioned this to me before. I'm not calling it bad anno i just didn't know what to think. I guess ill try to call pe and see if they will let me buy new peices to match. I know now it was stupid and it will never happen again! Thanks for the negative replys

For real, when I buy a 1,300 dollar gun, thats not how I would clean it. I mean are you that lazy to not just go over it with a paper towel.

Why do people do this wanna-be hk thing? I mean hk people dont even play paintball, they just whine and start drama while wearing the ugliest stuff. Seriously you find light blue and pink to be attractive colors for your parents 1500 dollar investment (your gun/marker)? If you want to whine keep it off the field and save it for the internet; O wait! THATS EXACTLY WHAT YOU DO! Haha, if you don't play then don't whine.


I want your G6r parts and upgrades, sell them to me, because you wont get anything for them if you sell/trade them with the gun.

I guess so LOLZ


I guess he does have a point, with a 1,300 dollar gun that anno should never come off with water, unless its like one of those water cutters.

Even if you didnīt put any detergent in that specific wash, you probably had some recidue of some from earlier washes. The detergent contains lye and will ruin your anno just like that.

Oh my. At first I thought maybe you just have hard water and should rub a little vinegar water on it, but if blue residue came off on your hands, you def screwed the pooch, sir. Lesson learned, eh?

Thats what im thinking. A dishwasher set on low temp with no soap should not hurt anno!

Lesson learned! I also learned another important lesson. Do like everyone one else and never post a screw up on the nation
At least I got a few post that weren't insulting
