lubing/dow55/bolt

Hey im a newb to timmys and i was wondering a few things.

bolt: should i apply the triflow everwhere or just on the o rings?

reg: how do i take it apart?

ram: o rings or all?

also i can't find any dow 55, i went to wallmart, home depot and napa and i can't find any.

Anywhere else?

all the places are like " i've never herd of it"

thanks alot,
all,
the,
best,

Only apply triflow around the orings.

The Torpedo comes apart in the center. Twist it open, pull out the piston, lube it up, put it back the way you took it out.

Mainly lube the orings on the ram, I put a thin coat over the rest of the ram.

You most likely won't find Dow 55 at any stores. Look online, go to google and search

"Dow 55 corning"
"Paintball Dow 55",

etc

I believe Criticalpaintball.com and paintballgateway.com carry it.

Blast only recomends to lub your bolt with triflow. Everything else use dow 55

We use Tri-Flow on the bolts, Dow 55 on the rest, and that's it. Whatever you read or hear otherwise is either incorrect or mistaken. None of us use or recommend 33, lithium or slickhoney. If they do, then I'll revoke their certification, lol.

Lubrication
Question:
I've been using Dow 33 lube, but many people keep recommending Dow 55. Which is better?
Answer:
Our tech recommends Dow 33, but 55 will work too. Only use Dow lube on the ram o-rings, low pressure regulator o-rings and vertical regulator o-rings

might wanna gte bob to change that on his site

www.boblong.com is run by National, not Blast or Bob Long. You can take National up on it though, I'm sure they would be happy to do it .

Sure it may work.

Not only is it not recommended, it will void your warranty. Blast gets markers coming in with solenoids jammed up with Slick Honey. It's also petroleum based.
