Issues with lurker bolt installation on axe

Does anyone have any magic tricks to get that spacer over the bolt? Mine is refusing to go on and I watched videos of people slipping it on like a sock and mine is not budging. Any help would be appreciated

Not all spacers fir the same.
You can take the inner o-ring out and sand the inside of the spacer ti'll it fits.
Or you can put the bolt over the spacer and push it down onto the guide.

Just remove the inner oring and replace it with a tank oring.

Sanding down the spacer won't do any damage to the bolt guide? I think if i just shove it on it will scratch the bolt guide horribly. Never installed one of these before and thought it would just fit

For whatever reason this has become necessary on most axes lately. We are changing to this from our facility

Yeah, it was the case on mine... took about 30sec to figure out what was going on, switch it, then get the spacer pushed back. Let me tell you... tinkering with that spacer is serious business.

Mine was the opposite, I've tried to find an o-ring that would grip tighter.

I tried evertyhing you guys suggested, not too much worked. The spacer was still to tight. I used my girlfriends spacer instead because she isn't using it. Now, I dry fired and its shooting alot louder than it did before. I'm assuming I have to do some modifications to the tuning of the gun. Any suggestions? Trying to get a really soft shot and still be efficient.

Tank orings are 015 ftr. Oddly enough mine started slipping, so I put an oversized (for the seat) 015 buna oring in there and it holds well now. I'm not sure why it works but it does.
