Cleaning my gun? How much and how often
Posted 19 August 2008 - 09:09 AM
I own 6 tippmanns and Do not clean them after every game. I have found it is better to clean them after every few games like 3 - 4 big games this will allow your gun to seal better.
You want to clean the insides of the tippmann really well soak them in some Teflon spray and let them dry. I have found this allows for better movement in the gun and doesnt mess with the orings.

HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH........So true... that bugger's dangerous. My cat ended up finding it when I cleaned my friend's gun.
As far as Tippmann's go? Buddy of mine has a 98 that manages to shoot rocks and sand..... (VERY bad idea) They're very durable as far as mechanics go and that's awesome. Fortunately you can grind more outta a tippy than any other gun I've shot. Does that mean you shouldn't clean it? Hell no. It all comes to how down and dirty you chose to get. Like previous suggestions, a ball break is a must but knowing the way I play, crawling through dirt, Sitting in piles of leaves etc I clean my BT-4 during lunch and you'd be surprised what manages to get in there. Average is every time/two times playing for moderate play. Remember, There is NEVER any such thing as too much lube/grease...heh. (well, until it gets into your noid =p)
Just my very long .02
