So using Vaseline really does help? Man I might try this when I get my demon.

Have you looked at the reg seat? Is it out? Is it in place? Is it damaged?

You results over chrono don't look that bad. They're not great, but how old is the gun and how much paint has been through it?

I wouldn't think it would, besides I doubt vanguard would recommend something that would essentially ruin your gun.

i know it wont ruin the gun, but my tought was it would lead to faster oring deterioration. but it was just a question because every other gun i owned ppl always told me to stay away from petroleum based lubs.

but hey, if vaseline is the new magic sh*t and can make my demon better am all in also

The thought had crossed my mind as well, but I dismissed it as I couldn't see vanguard recommending it, perhaps one of them will chime in on it.

this was covered in the other thread.. I'm too lazy to go find it but in a nutshell, petroleum is bad for rubber products. There are virtually zero orings used out there that are *real* (natural) rubber. They're all synthetic (nitrile or "buna"), which is virtually impervious to petroleum products, relatively speaking.

Don't sweat it.
