HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR GEL BLASTER?

by Simon Moret 10 Jun 2024

Proper maintenance ensures your gel blaster functions smoothly and lasts longer. Here are some general tips:

 

1. Cleaning externals:

After each use, clean the exteriors of the blaster with a soft dry or a slightly damp cloth to remove dirt, debris, and any leftover gel residue. Pay special attention to the barrel and chamber area, as residue buildup can affect performance.

 

2. Disassembly:

Periodically disassemble your gel blaster according to the manufacturer's instructions. This allows you to access internal components for thorough cleaning and inspection.

Inspect the seals, O-rings, and gaskets for signs of wear or damage. Replace any worn or damaged seals to prevent air leaks and ensure a proper seal between components.

Avoid using harsh chemicals or submerging the blaster in water.

 

3. Cleaning internals:

Use a soft brush or cotton swab to gently clean the internal components of the blaster, such as the gearbox, piston, cylinder, and hop-up unit. Be careful not to use excessive force or abrasive materials that could damage the parts.

 

4. Lubrification:

 

Apply a small amount of silicone oil or lubricant on moving parts and metal components of the gearbox to reduce friction and prevent wear.  

Be sure to use lubricants specifically designed for gel blasters to avoid damaging sensitive parts.

 

5. Gel balls:

Use clean, high-quality gel balls. Avoid using old, dried-out, or deformed balls, as they can jam the blaster.

Storing unused gel balls properly is also important to maintain their quality and prevent them from deteriorating: 

  • Moisture can cause gel balls to expand or degrade. Store them in a dry environment to prevent them from absorbing moisture, which could affect their size and performance.
  • Store gel balls in airtight containers to prevent exposure to air, which can also affect their quality. Make sure the containers are clean and dry before placing the gel balls inside.
  • UV light can degrade gel balls over time. Store them away from direct sunlight or any other sources of UV light to maintain their integrity.
  • Gel balls can be a choking hazard for children and pets, so store them in a secure location where they cannot be accessed by curious hands or paws.

Periodically check your gel balls for any signs of deterioration, such as changes in texture or size. If you notice any issues, discard them and replace them with fresh ones.

 

6. Storage:

Store the blaster in a secure, dry location when not in use. Avoid storing it under direct sunlight or extreme temperatures, as this can damage the internal components and affect performance.

 

7. Battery maintenance:

If your gel blaster is battery-powered, properly maintain the batteries by charging them according to the manufacturer's instructions.

 

8. Test fire:

 

Before each use, perform a test fire to ensure that the blaster is functioning properly. This allows you to identify any issues or malfunctions before heading into a game or skirmish.

Finally, don't forget to routinely inspect your gel blaster for any signs of damage, wear, or malfunction. Address any issues promptly to prevent further damage and ensure reliable performance.


By following these maintenance tips, you can prolong the life of your gel blaster and enjoy reliable performance during your games.. Always follow the manufacturer's guidelines and recommendations for maintenance and care specific to your gel blaster model. This ensures that you're taking the appropriate steps to keep your blaster in top condition.
