I stopped by my local paintball store last year so I could be shown how to disasemble and clean my X7 (if anyone has a guide on that it'd be helpful, btw, as I've kinda forgotten) and the guy who told me how to take it apart said that I could put gun oil in the gas nipple (where I screw in my remote line) and that it'd get dispersed throught the mechanic. Is this true and does it actually work at lubricating the gun?

yes, it is true. It only works on a mechanical marker, not an electro. For your X7, itll be fine. To learn how to take it apart, look at your manual, or go onto the youtube

How many drops should I put in? And I've tried the manual, it's rather unhelpful. Didn't think of youtube. :facepalm:

I found two to three drops are more than enough, it's like oiling up a nail gun.
Aim for anything that is visible, most of my shots are either leg, elbow or head... that is if you see me first.

X7's and A5's (more so for the A5's) are in my opinion very easy to disassemble and reassemble but most are a little intimidated by it. No worries, it just takes a little practice and understanding what does what. Like Smitty suggested, take a look and some youtube videos on X7 disassembly and you should learn most of what you need to know.

As for how dipping oil down into your gun, ya it's a simple way to lube it up but I've always preferred opening up the whole gun, cleaning the old gunk out with a rag and some soapy water, then putting a few drops anywhere there is constant action and o-rings. This way I know everything is getting lubed and cleaned.

I agree with big bone. If you're in a hurry, or you know the internals are pretty clean, you can lube it by putting drops in the ASA(where you put the air source). after a day of playing, you really should take it apart to clean. At the very least, clean the bolt and striker. Other things dont need to be cleaned as often, usually.

About the only time I really rely on the oil in the ASA remote nipple is during a two day scenario game. Other than that I try to keep my markers clean.

The best advice I can give on gun care is to completely bench strip your gun after a day of use, clean and re-oil it, then store it in the de-cocked position.

If you have any problems with remembering how to take your gun apart, one trick is to get an old calender, and place the parts on it in the order that you remove them. Then reverse the process when putting it back togeather.

Good luck and happy hunting.

One thing to note is that after putting oil in the fill nipple you will want to fire ~20 shots without the barrel attached to spread it around. The reason for taking the barrel off is that oil will travel through the marker and the excess will coat the barrel and can cause your paint to curve.

Lube it every time

If your lazy you can just put oil in the nipple every time and take the gun apart every other time you do they are pretty rugged.
