Paintball markers have to be maintained properly in order to get a good performance for a long time, and this will increase the lifetime of the paintball markers considerably. According to the model that is used by the player, the maintenance technique will also vary. So it is necessary to know the right techniques before doing any maintenance works. The basic techniques might be same for all the models, but it is necessary to do fine tuning to make the model look and work better.
Here are some tips that will be useful in order to make the paintball marker work for a longer time. First, it is necessary to read the manual of the gun in a detailed manner. This might not be an interesting work but this reading is a must. This will give knowledge about the basic cleaning and also the time interval that has to be given between two consecutive maintenances. A very common maintenance technique that will suit most of the paintball markers is the oiling. Before doing this work, it is necessary to remove the barrel and the paintballs that are present inside it. Make sure the oil does not enter the pellets as it will affect the trajectory. It is essential to spread the oil over the adapter completely.
In fact, a toothpick will be used by some people in order to do the cleaning work in an efficient manner. Once the oiling is done, the reassembling has to be done carefully, and the gun can be refilled with the paintball. An activity that has to be done very cautiously is the storage of paintball gun. If it is not stored properly, especially if it is going to be left unused for a long time, the gun might not work properly. So proper care has to be given to the gun even it is stored.
