Put 2 drops of oil in the ASA, and when you field strip it oil all the O-Rings.

Air Source Adapter   or  Tank Adapter  or to get down to the long explanation "the fitting on the botton of the grip into which the tank screws"

Didn't you get a manual with your marker? If not, did you know that you can download a copy right here on the Tippmann web site? It is full of a bunch of little insignificant facts...like how to oil your marker!!!

Isn't the front bolt delrin? and therefore self-lubricating?

Yes it is Delrin. And it is slick, but a drop or two of oil on the power tube on which the forward bolt slides helps to remove dirt and grit that damage those slick materials. The bolt itself doesn't make contact with the receiver area of the marker except when it sides into position behind the ball after pushing the ball into the breech of the barrel. The "O" ring around that front end should also be lubricated with a drop or two of oil.

Slick plastics like Delrin and other Nylon off shoots do wear against each other. Oil helps.

You want to oil anything that is steel, or else it will rust.
After you have torn the gun apart and cleaned and oiled everything else, you put the gun back together. Put a drop of oil or two down in the ASA. This is the threaded thing that you screw the air tank into. Then TAKE THE BARREL OFF. Screw in your tank, and fire about twenty shots through the gun. The point of all of this is to get some oil into the gun's valve. YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE THE BARREL ON THROUGH THIS PROCESS. Otherwise, you will shoot oil into the barrel, and your accuracy will be terrible, and the oil will be very difficult to clean out.
