there is a big post showing pictures and stuff under upgrade section. but you basically remove all the paint around the powertube and bolt. there should be no paint in the curve area. also around the trigger.
Setup:
Tippmann Custom Pro
E-trigger
12" All American
BT Folding Stock
GTA Inline Expansion Chamber Kit
Dead on Pro seal
Cyclone Feed System
Remote Line
Polished internals

It makes no difference. Nothing slides against those surfaces.

No, there's no particular direction you need to polish. Why do you have grafite drops, all you need is steel wool. Some people will say you need polish, but you don't need it.

Since even the finest steel will leaves lines of striation, in general polish in-line with the movement of the parts.

??? Usually, you would take a corded power tool, install a polishing wheel. Turn it on and do the job with that?

98% of ion owners think ions are better than any high end gun. If you would like to bonus ball these idiots put this in your sig.
