Alright so I wanted to find official information in regards to lubing the L7 Bolt Engine, although I couldn't find anything Rev-I specific.

Is it safe to assume just lube the O-Rings and the spring?

Also could I could get a recommendation what kind of lube you use here?

Just trying to work out the little issues's I was having with my Rev-I

There's nothing to lube on the spring, it's just there because the Threshold and Rev-i bodies are slightly different, which allows them to use the same big spacer to hold the bolt stop in. Just lube the bolt like you would any other spoolie, light coat on the sail o-ring (less is more) and a bit on the bolt stem o-ring in the bolt stop, and that's it.

I personally use Lurker Lube in mine, and I've used Hater sauce before as well, both work fine.

What sort of issues are you having?

Sometimes it will shoot at an FPS just high enough for it to get out of the barrel and other times it will not shoot at all.

Twice I ran into an issue with leaking in the body of the gun.

I guess try the standard "new battery, stock board settings, etc," and see what happens.

Yea I just have to the field. Also I was thinking I need to perform maintenance on the regulator. Not sure when the last owner did.

True, it never hurts to do a reg maintenance just in case.

Well there's your problem. I always assume the previous owner had absolutely no idea what they were doing, especially when it comes to maintenance. I would recommend replacing all the orings, as well as the solenoid orings if you're feeling adventurous. Also check the reg seat for indentation, as that can cause velocity issues as well.
