Dumb question: Is this guide telling me to grease the area next to my detents?

https://www.gogpaintball.com/docs/parts/enmey_parts.pdf

Checking out my Enmey guide to learn how to grease my gun. The second page suggests greasing the body assembly which looks to be the areas before and after where the ball drops in.

Reading other guides says you wouldn't want grease around the feedneck area after loading the ball.

Maybe I'm just not understanding my own guide.

Another newb question: Once I remove the barrel and bolt, how do I clean the body assembly? Can I run anything through it? Or does it actually need greased according to that guide.

Grease is needed in any part where metal touch metal, or more specifically, where metal touch rubber. If an o-ring is going to run trough this part, then it needs grease. So yes, grease used to be a good idea before the detents, but NOT after. Just a thin film of grease, you don't want to flood it!

EDIT: This is from a general perspective, not marker specific. Looking at the PDF looks like they state to put a small amount of grease inside the groove just after the detents.

Does the bolt goes that far?
Have the bolt an oring on the tip?

Well it says to lightly grease the o rings not the grease the body. That just means to lightly coat the oring so it's not dry or doesn't dry out. It doesn't mean you will have enough grease on there to get on the ball. I'm on my phone so not 100% sure but it appears that the rear oring is actually behind the bolt tip so it wouldn't come in contact with a ball anyway.

The areas they are telling you to grease are labeled as o rings. The bolt slides passed those o rings. I would not go heavy grease on those. It is probably so the bolt does no pull out the o rings on the first couple shots. After that the grease on the bolt should keep those front o rings lubed.

that makes sense.

I tried it out and the gun seems to be firing without a hiccup
