I know that in general maintenance that you're supposed to apply a small amount of oil on your hardware to prevent rust but many people forget, don't know or just don't do because they don't ever think that they'll strip out a screw.

Well After helping yet another local player drill out his stripped out Allen screws and answering yet another Stripped screw thread I'm bringing this little known product out into the open.

Permatex Anti Seize:

Now many of you may be wondering what exactly this stuff is so here's the answer. This particular Anti Sieze is a blend of aluminum, copper and graphite lubricants(fine powder) in a petroleum base(synthetic Grease). It first uses were in a variety of things from boilers to industrial turbines.

Now we can bring it into our world. Since the majority of ballers don't want to shell out $30 for a Stainless Screw kit or spend a few hours at there local hardware store rooting through bins for the right size bolts. Here's a simple $4 solution.

All you'll need is a small 1oz tube of this stuff and apply a small amount (1/16th diameter sphere) to the first few threads and re assemble your marker, that's it. Requires little time and very little cash. Best of all this will last for a very long time, put it this way we have a 16oz bottle and we use it on everything we can, after 35 yrs we haven't even gone through a 1/3 of it.

You can find this Anti Seize at a wide variety of Auto Parts Stores along with supermarkets and The *-Mart's.

So is $4 worth the time and aggravation of drilling out a stripped out screw? IMO Yes it is, which is why I applying this stuff to all of my markers when I first got them and I haven't needed to reapply since. And haven't had one strip out yet.

Also the other major factor in stripping out screws is over tightening. Believe it or not ALOT of people torque them down way to much. Tighter is not always better. For a reference just use your pointer finger when tightening down your screws/bolts, and when the Allen wrench starts to flex a little or you can pull any more, that's it, no more torque is needed.

Well I hope this little tidbit enlightened a few of you to this product and hopefully you'll try it and find out how great it is for pb applications.

Good piece of advice man. I wonder what some of the veterans have in their repair kits? I know this has to be one of the things in it....

That's a good idea but most people think nothing bad will ever happen to their gun so they don't spend time on preventative maintainence.

You'd be suprised how oblivious people are when it comes to these things. Heck Dave owner of Hellsurvivors was still doing the nromal oiling on there rentals, I suggested this last year at TWC to cut down on rental down times after seeing a worker having trouble getting out a stripped grip screw. Hopefully he took my advice, but I doubt a guy that's been running a field for 20yrs would take advice form a guy that's been playing for 8yrs.

Yeah, this is good stuff. I'm a mechanic in my life outside of paintball, and this stuff is used religiously on all sorts of things. The only thing you need to keep in mind is that it doesn't take a lot of it to get the job done, just enough to barely coat all of the threads will do it until it wears off. The last thing you want is excess "goo" getting inside your marker.

Yep, I bet 80% of the bolts on my car has this stuff on them. :)

Thanks, I'm looking to get some small 1/8th oz blister packs or similar and hand them out at games I attend to help out some of the more inept players.

I have a stripped screw in my A-5 as we speak. So when I go get some wood glue I will pick some of this stuff up too (I'm going to glue an allen wrench to the screw and hope).

Are you agitating my dots? 10%

If you wanna glue an allen wrench into the screw then I don't think wood glue is the correct stuff. Try an epoxy of some type.

No caulk is definitely not epoxy.
Epoxy consists of a two part mixture, a resin and a hardener, after being mixed thoroughly in the right proportions you have a very durable adhesive when it dries/hardens.

YOu can find a small epoxy dispensers that do all the work of proportioning and dispensing for you in vessels like these:

They can be found almost anywhere from convenience stores to supermarkets, and cost about $2.

all you need to do is mix it very thoroughly and then apply it to your Allen wrench and bolt and this sets up in about 5min with about a 1-2hr cure time.

I dont carry it in my Repair Kit, because I dont Over Tighten any of the Screws & Bolts on my Marker but, I do carry and use it in my Tool Box at home for the Wheel Lugs on my Truck, cus having rusted Wheel Lugs is a Back Breaker when changing a Flat Tire or when I have to Rotate the Wheels.
