my 98 custom is a little bit older and i dont recall it coming with loctite on the valve screws which i could be wrong about but my little brothers is a lot newer and did come with red loctite on them

also another problem that can cause uncocking is using the wrong oil to lubricate your gun. petroleum based oils can cause rubber components like certain o rings to swell up. while i dont know if the rear bolt o ring is rubber or not i have heard of them swelling up and not going smoothly in and out of the powertube robbing it of velocity needed to recock

^^^No.  Im not going to get into the petrolleum jelly debate now....but it has been tested by me and others to never hurt o rings one bit.  Maybe its the material the rings are made of...but ive never had a problem with that stuff.  On heavy moving parts (bolts in mechs..) and reg parts i like to use p jelly.  Also, maybe it could be the type of p jelly...we use industrial grade stuff...maybe that could be the difference.  Later guys.

The tippmann factory uses RED loctite, and infact sent me a bottle of it when I had to swap out valves myself.

yeah lol. i was working on my dads gun and i put locktite (red) under the power tube. i opened it up again but this time i couldn't moce the power tube. after that i relized that is was fasend to the receivers with screws. the locktite i put in it didn't do much. i wiped that all out and then relubed it all up.      crazy mistake, isn't it.
