Really all you have to do is the basics, take out the bold and lube it, put 1 drop and rub it all around, also put a swab through your breach to clean any chops you may have had. Clean your loader too depending on the loader its different cleaning for all of them


that's the main maintenance you will need to do

Put a small drop on each oring then spread it all the way around the ring, that should be fine. I would do it after every day of play.

take some oil, and put a few drops in the asa then dry fire it. this should spread the lube pretty well. then if you feel the need to lube the ram and the bolt o rings.

DO NOT PUT OIL IN THE ASA. It is not your A5 it could damage the gun. A drop of oil on each rammer oring and the bolt is optional. I wouldnt put it on the bolt cause it attracts dust. Every 4 cases or so i lube the lpr and hpr piston.

Like most people said, oil your bolt, slightly, after every day of play. Regulator, it is good to clean it every 4-6 cases. So 8000-12000 shots would be good. Just follow the manual precisely the first couple of times though. Make sure you don't lose anything, break something, etc. And you'll be a pro at it in no time! :D
