Take everything apart, wipe it down and clean it with warm soapy water. Lube then reassemble. I'd also get some new O-rings since it'll be all apart.



*edit* I keep an old toothbrush just for paintball, gets all that old dry paint out of the cracks. I also only use a mild dish detergent as soap, and make sure to rinse it all off.

isopropyl alcohol is handy as a solvent and to get water out of the small spots. WD40 is good for sears and springs that have a little corrosion on them.

I typically just drop it in the clothes washer and let it run through a cycle.

Edit: Then the best way to dry it is 30 seconds in the microwave on high.

All good suggestions. My former teammates used to take the internals out real quick and run everything in the dish washer.

Beware, I've seen someone (on pbn, lol) fade the anno on their marker doing this. Even the residue of dishwashing detergent left in your machine from previous cycles can be alkaline enough to harm the finish. Ymmv.

Call it your own 'custom' acid wash.

I'll second warm water, dish soap, and a toothbrush. A towel is nice too, for wiping off the globs.
