Axe: Maintenance

Pound-sign (#) indicates the ID/number from the diagram in the manual

Skipping this maintenance will cause your gun to break down and get you lit up like a Christmas tree.

Best Lubes for your DM5:
  • Use the lube that came with your Axe or Dow33

    • Dow33 may give you more play time between changing o-rings

Between Games:
  • Clean your barrel using a clean swab or rag

  • Wipe down the outside of your marker. Do not use household cleaners or rinse off marker with water

  • Repeat the items above
