Just received my P17 and been plunking with it. Yep, plunking, I shoot into a mound of modelling clay…..plunk.
Nice for the price…so far.
Now for the tech stuff. What do I use to lube the ram? Does it have to be broken down to do this? How often? etc…
Same for other SPP rifles like the 953.
Thanks!

You don't have to take it apart. Just apply some grease when the piston fully opened. The best for this is white lithium grease in my experience. It provides the oring with a smoother glide than just 30w nd oil. Don't apply too much and reapply a bit when it starts to dry out (~2000 pellets).

sorry TH, applying it that way will never get to the o-ring the tolerance on piston and tube is to great and the o-ring will act like a sqeegee and not let it get down into the tube only maybe with some oil. The only way to properly lube the o-ring on the P-17 is to remove the piston from the tube and thats very easy to do.

Now the daisy 953 can be lubed the way your describing by opening the pump arm all the way and then adding lube oil to the foam ring just behind the o-ring, or directly to the o-ring :wink:

Yes, you're right. I was thinking only 953.

So Pellgun oil?

White lithium grease is the best, but if you don't have it, pellgunoil works well too.

With pellgunoil, you can oil the inside of the piston without disassembling by dropping some through the air intake hole on the bottom of the cylinder.

Should pull the piston anyways...check the air inlet hole for burrs and fix any you find. Then lube and re-assemble.

A really fun low power plinker and surprisingly accurate for a $50 air pistol. :)

I agree, seems fairly solid. I really bought this to replace my Buck Mark as a dart gun. So far, I'm impressed. Thanks all for the tips.

handyguy if you do decide to remove the piston its very easy here is a link that will explain it much better than i can type it lol..., a lot of people forget to undo the allen set screw on the top of the piston arm before trying to remove the pin. The pin will slide right out you don't need a punch. :wink:
