I recall viewing Mr. Kay on the 68 Automag instruction cassette saying it is important that the reg seat remain dry and oil free. I am open to correction.
I used remote co2 on my mags and they gunked up with crud often, especially the reg piston and washer stack.
Co2 and silicone based oil come together to make a yummy grey paste. I had to give all parts attention, even with the use of palmers 1/8 npt filter leading to the valve. I have hpa but I will never give up remote co2. Even in the winter.
So the manual is open to interpretation.
