I too strip them down first then lube/fire. Its kinda a double edged sword. The one time I decided I would just gas it up and fire it without inspecting everything I found a ball in the barrel the hard way...so did my computer monitor.

Another time I decided I would take a perfect working Vector all the way apart...I still dont know where that screw goes.

These days i'll "field strip" to lube and inspect, instead of tearing them all the way down. That is unless its someting I have taken down before. Ocasionally i'll buy a gun ive never dealt with just to tear apart.

That sucks, I bought an old PGP from an auction once that had an old red (shell and fill so ya know its ancient) ball in the barrel. I shot it out straight down from the second story of my house onto concrete and it BOUNCED

That one got a lot of TLC before I played with it.

I also found teflon tape wrapped around the electrical connections on my e-mag (Insulating them so they had no power) when I first stripped it down. Guy who sold it to me was an idiot.

Always a good Idea to take them apart first.

Air it up and make sure it fires. I should really check them out first and clean/oil, but I'm too damned impatient.

MUST... SHOOT... GUN!!!


After that I break them down and give 'em a good cleaning.

For me, the gun usually doesn't make it from the mailbox/car into the basement(my lair) in one piece. By then it's already stripped down even if I dont know how to put it back together. But I'm good at learning things as I take it apart due to many many hours of legos when I was younger. Then oil, air, shoot.

I've recently bought a bunch of cheapie markers from Ebay. My 9-yr old step-son and I took them apart to compare how they're built. Add a little lube and re-assemble. Test firing in the back yard is the best (I have an old department store mannaquin in the woods behind my house).

I usually don't dis-assemble the trigger assemblies -- I broke a VM68 all the way down to the atomic level -- I got everything back together without a problem -- except the damned trigger group. That took aaaaa long time

Typically just a field strip, lube and oil. If I have time and resources, I'll shoot around out back.
