Tips!

I just picked up a demon and was wondering what tips other demon or vanguard owners could give me. Ive heard about some of the issues and have creeped on here just doing some digging. But what are some things I should know about maintaining it or possible future repairs??

I would watch and save these two videos from ShootnPoo on here:


and


They helped me fix my new Demon that I messed up - fixed various leaks and issues - 4 o-rings and a replacement diaphragm later, all was fine.

Oh, buy some spares... diaphragms - they are tiny and crucial!

Yes! These videos helped me a lot as well.

Also, lube it before you play. Fresh lube has fixed 99% of all my problems. Make it the first thing you try when have a problem. Also, I've found Vaseline works better than Dow 55 where I'm at. These guns tend to go through a lot and when the lube starts to thin/wear down you'll see FSDO and such. A quick relube is usually all thats needed.

If I get a moment, want me to post some photos of things like a diaphragm, manifold, etc?
Maybe some photos of the bolt and all the o-rings and explain what each one does? (Kinda what ShootnPoo does, but in a picture form)

Buy some extra diaphragms! You will need them eventually.

Any chance you have o-ring or repair kits too?

I lost my box, with o-rings and lube, in the process of getting it sent to for repair. I at least need to replace the o-ring kit.
