How to use a grease gun? First, let’s look at priming. If you look at the priming on your standard air guns, you’ll see that it’s a long cylindrical tube with a priming guide that pushes down into the primer. This pushes the priming into the primer chamber and allows it to fill up with lubricant and be ready for use. Without grease in the priming guide, however, the priming just drops straight into the gun’s hole, and that can lead to jamming or not being able to fire a BB when you’re using it.
So what do you do if you can’t get the priming guide to stick into the priming chamber with your grease gun? You prime the end of your airsoft gun’s hose. The best way to do this is to put the airsoft gun in slow reload mode, then load up your grease gun with some BBs and force the feed forward to the end of the tube where the grease will be seated. Then force the pump grease forward past the priming guide, seating the BB properly.
Here’s another example of gun anatomy. Now, let’s assume you have a semi-automatic M1 Garand that you want to upgrade to an automatic. The first thing you’ll have to do is take apart your semi-automatic and disassemble it. Next you’ll have to determine where the action is on your rifle, and how it goes from the grip to the bolt head. This is called your cocking mechanism. Once you’ve done that, you’ll know what parts you need from your gun anatomy to get your automatic up and running.
Let’s assume we have our semi-automatic back up. Once your cocking mechanism is taken apart, and your new grease gun is loaded with your new grease, what do you do next? First, take your existing semi-automatic and put the new grease into the breech. The key here is to match the new grease to the existing grease so there are no mismatches or problems when you reassemble your gun. This is a very important step for getting a quality breech installed correctly.
Once the gun is assembled, you’ll need a wrench to remove the old BB lubricant tube from the back of your gun. Your new grease gun will have a separate BB lubrication nipple and valve assembly. These two parts will help move your BB’s through the gun and give you better accuracy and consistency. It’s also important to note that the different types of lubrication nipples and valves have different valve speeds and flow rates. You’ll want to choose a type that will work with your equipment and your personal shooting style.
Next, you’ll probably want to compare your semi-automatic to your new power source. Remember, you should always go with the highest pressure output that you’re comfortable with. You don’t want to be in a hurry to switch to a higher power source when you’re not even fully loaded!
Once everything is connected and running properly, you can use the gun to load your pellets and load your shot. As always, you should wear safety goggles and gloves and have them on at all times while operating this type of equipment. Grease can easily ruin your clothing and skin, so take special care to protect yourself. Also, make sure you use your grease gun in its intended capacity only – never use it to load your gun or to shoot BBs.
Finally, your gun should be clean and dry after cleaning. To clean your grease gun’s internal parts, you can either use compressed air to blow out all the gun’s parts, or you can use a small brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner. It is important to always rinse off the dirt from your Grease Gun’s fittings with a clean cloth and then dry them with paper towels. Do not store your Grease Gun near an electric outlet, and make sure you charge your battery completely before using it. Finally, if you are using a cordless version, be sure to purchase a grease gun cord that has the appropriate voltage for your model.
