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

Overview:
Best Lubes for your A5:
  • Tippmann oil (or a quality paintball oil) is recommended for lubricating the o-rings in your Tippmann marker

Before Playing:
  • Tippmann markers are mechanical & don't require the same amount of maintenance as electronic markers. That said, following the guidelines below will keep you ahead of the game

  • Put a drop of oil in your ASA before attaching your air tank. Once attached, test firing your marker a few times will lubricate your internals

Between Games:
  • Clean your barrel

  • Wipe down the outside of your marker with a rag & clean out the cyclone feed if needed

  • Remove the bolt assembly and inspect the o-rings for  damage and replace if needed
