Demon bolt can question

hey guys, pulled out the power core for the first time to lube, and saw this:





does anyone else have a can that has scratches like these, or all of those small oxidation looking marks? kind of concerned.
the gold bolt and guide look flawless, the can is the only problem with the power core.

I saw another thread similar to this, and Eric posted telling him to email customer support. I don't know if it is anything to be worried about though.

You bought a used gun, u get what you payfor when buying used.

Besides none of this is anything to worry about. Its a raw piece of aluminum and does not effect the marker in any way.

For future reference.......as long as the oring grooves aren't mangled enough to cause a leak, that's all that matters. The rest of the metal just seperates compartments for air flow. The air doesn't care about scratches

The firing can is a "Static" part meaning it doesn't move during the operation of the marker. The only time it moves is when the user removes it from the body, which indicates that any "damage" caused to this part would have been caused by the user. But, like it's already been stated, since this is not a "dynamic" part meaning that it moves, or something else moves along it, these scratches and bumps will not affect performance.

Enjoy your marker.

Can keeps unscrewing? You mean the back cap comes loose?

If so change the 021 oring on back cap.

Cause the back cap is coming loose from the marker. Change the oring on the back cap anf make sure you are tightening the can to the back cap real snug.
