PostSubject: How To Clean Your Marker   Sun Apr 08, 2012 5:41 pm

This doesn't touch on every thing(like cyclone maintenance or power tube dis assembly) but I got alot of the stuff.

Step 1 )
Get your marker in a clean area and make sure visually and physically that the marker is degassed and isn't loaded.


Step 2 )
Get a box or container that is clean to keep all pieces that have been removed from the marker in.


Step 3 )
Remove the barrel, magazine, sights, grip/rail system, sling, 45degree pistol grips, ect.
LEAVE THE FEED NECK/CYCLONE INSTALLED!


Step 4 )
Remove the screws from the marker shells and remove the right half of the receiver.


Step 5 )
Place the shell screws in a safe place in a way that you'll remember what goes where.


Step 6 )
Remove all internals but the power-tube and feed neck.


Step 7 )
Remove the feed neck/cyclone and unscrew the power-tube and place it with the rest of the internals.


Step 8 )
This isn't really a step but it's informative. The stuff that I use to clean is for real firearms. It eats away at the dirt and grime. It can be bought at Firearms dealers, Bass Pro Shops. and Cabellas for about $9 (US). It doesn't harm paint/camo finishes and is okay for plastic and polymer. It also doesn't harm optics. IT WILL HARM YOU IF YOU AREN'T CAREFULL!!! Wear Rubber gloves and use it in a well ventilated area(outside).


Step 9 )
Due to the fumes in the cleaner you'll want to move your operation outside. The cleaner will kill all non-human life(plants, bugs, ect.) it encounters so i used a the stone part of my driveway.


Step 10 )
Spray the cleaner in the section of the gun with the actual moving parts and let it loosed up the grime. Then dry the cleaned sections with a paper towel. Repeat until clean. For the little harder to reach spots spray the tip of a q-tip with the solvent and scrub the spot with it.

Step 11 )
Repeat step 10 on other parts of your maker where it is desired. Another place I did this is on the hammer.
Before:

After:


Step 12 )
Put your maker back together in order of steps 7-6-5-4-3-2-1.

Your marker is now reassembled and clean!

Good write up, but I have aquestion for you on it. How does that cleaner affect your O-rings?

It doesn't harm the orings in any way. If you have a non electronic gun you could probably bath the whole thing in a vat of the cleaner(not recommended).

Good write up.
I personally strip the marker then rub the crap out of it, with dry clean cloths & loo roll.
Baby wipes for the grimy stuff.....love those things, there great for anything with enough elbow grease behind it.
Make sure there is no fluff or anything by giving it a good gust of air.
Rinse all chemicals and "baby wipe residue" off all parts.
I dont like using harsh chemicals if I can avoid em...just in-case they affect o-rings or my paint.
Then lube the monkeys out of my o-rings, tube, springs, barrel thread, asa thread & o-ring, front bolt & internals
with synthetic marker oil & re-assemble.
And thats it.....DONE. Very Happy
