ram action is sticking

i was loctiting my ram to the gun, but i think some seeped out and got into the threads to the arm thats attatched to the ram. (not the one that screws into the back block).

my problem is that the arm going in and out of the ram is "sticking". it goes in and out, but its not as smooth as before, but i think the gun would still fire ok

my question is, should i take off the barbs on the ram and put some oil in there? or oil the ram arm? or should i just buy a new ram? thanks

I would take a barb off and put a TINY bit of O-ring safe lube in there and work it to see if it frees up a bit more. Other than that, just put some air to it and see how well she cycles. If anything it'll probably just require a little more psi from the LPR to cycle.

no need to take anything off, just put some oil right into the asa and dry fire it a bunch. it will draw the oil up through the pneumatics. be generous with it too, the extra will just get blown out the vent holes, it wont harm anything.

Do whatever feels natural, the oil will go to the same place no matter how ridiculous you decide to be.

Try rotating the pump arm a little, sometimes it'll get a bit cockeyed and bind up like that.

Was it you who mentioned in another thread that you thought the ram shaft was slightly bent? Could be that it is, and loctiting the ram down got rid of the bit of play the ram had to allow it to move freely.

i thought the cocking rod was slightly bent, but i think its all ok now, the ram doesnt go in and out as smoothly, but i dont think its enough to effect anything.

thanks for help guys.
