In this situation, was this the correct thing to do?

You have to disassemble the gun to grease the bolt anyway. I did that when I oiled the reg, too.
That's a good idea! I never thought about that.

The A5 doesn't have to be shooting at velocity to cycle the reg, it just has to move air. So even if it wont recock just do it yourself a few times, the oil will still move through the reg.

unscrew your reg
put oil in ASA turn air on
some oil will blow out of the reg with the air u just used
turn off air
screw reg back on
No...well yes, but no. It will leave a little oil in the reg, but the velocity of the air will carry most of the oil with it, leaving little to lubricate with. Cycling forces a lil oil to get into all the areas that have movement, rather than just around it, by freeflowing.
