Paintball Gun Maintenance : Paintball Gun Maintenance: Replacing O-Rings on Bolts


Hi, this is Robert Stewart with hill13.com.
Now we’ve shown you how to get down to the bolt, and inspect the o-rings, but let’s assume
that for for arguments sake, that the o-rings need to be replaced on either the front or
the rear bolt. Now we’re going to look at that and I want you to pay special attention
to this piece of the trigger assembly here floating on this pin, with this spring behind
it because when we start to take these parts apart; the elements apart, you’re going to
have pieces that are going to want to move around and you don’t want to let them get
away from you. What we’re going to start with is to take the end cap loose and then remove
the linkage arm, will allow us to take the two bolts, the rear, and front bolt out. So
what we’re going to do is we’re going to pull this up and once you that is exactly what
I’m talking about. That’s the magic of television. Our spring just shot away. Even though I had
my finger against it, it still got away, so we’ll recover that in a minute. What we’re
going to do now is we’re going to remove carefully these two loaded springs here, behind the
rear bolt. Then we’re going to take up the linkage arm which is this piece of light gauge
metal you see, that runs from the rear bolt to the front bolt. And once we get that out;
then up and out we can take it loose, and we can actually pull the front bolt loose
from the air chamber and we can now remove the rear bolt and take it up to have a closer
inspection and replace the o-rings, if necessary. Pay careful attention to this ring here, too.
This is a a rubber bushing that sets toward the rear of the bolt. You don’t want to lose
that and you really don’t want to let these springs come apart too much, if you can help
it. If you’ll notice, inside there’s a sleeve; a receiver sleeve here on the rear bolt that
that spring has to line up with. So we’re just going to set this part aside here and
we’re going to look at the front bolt. Now, when this goes back on, you want to make sure
that when you put the two pieces in you bring the rear the front bolt back in, in such a
way that they line up again and the linkage bolt can go back inside the way it’s supposed
to. So, the steps in reverse are exactly the same. We’ll have to recover a spring in order
to put our trigger back together, but then we can mount up the rear bolt, and slide the
front bolt in, put the linkage arm on it once the bolt is back in place and the end cap
is in its groove and you’re ready to put the weapon back together.
