Ive never owned a Nelson before

Edit: the R7 is one of 8 markers that I have ever owned. Currently my inventory stands at 3. We all arent equally yoked in this game of paintball lol. Besides, I am only asking for what was asked or promised, no?

Haven't held my R7 yet, but I can tell you exactly how it breaks down.

1. Make sure it is unloaded and de-gassed (obviously).
2. Unscrew the front thumbscrew.
3. The body should slide off of the valve/trigger frame combo at this point. The bolt should stay in the body. The main spring will be loose. The hammer will probably stay on the power tube, trapped by the trigger frame.
4. Unscrew the bolt connecting the valve to the trigger frame. The valve should pull straight up off the frame as the transer fitting pulls out of the hole on the frame.
5. Unscrew the valve plug from the front of the valve and your power tube, cup seal, and valve spring should now come out of the valve. Unscrew the cup seal from the power tube to free the power tube from the valve plug thing.
6. The pierce pin should unscrew out of the top of the trigger frame.

Lubricate the bolt, hammer, main spring, cup seal, and valve spring. Probably the o-rings on the transfer fitting as well. Then do the steps in reverse order. If you manage to screw it up, well... that's saying something.

You can watch the introduction video on the first page, top video on the list. Apoc does a quick breakdown of the gun.

Regular maintenance just requires taking front thumbscrew out, and cleaning/lubing the main moving parts internally. the valve doesn't need to be cleaned very often, I recommend every hundred 12 grams, or about 4000 rounds/2 cases, remove valve from frame, unscrew the valve and clean the spring and cupseal, lube the oring and reassemble, also lubricating the transfer port seal when bolting it back on the frame. the pierce pin does not require any service unless it develops a leak.
