Will Pellgunoil Foul the Diana Chaser Suppressor ?
I am shooting my Chaser in rifle configuration a lot lately. Standard practice is to place a drop of pellgunoil on the CO2 cartridge prior to insertion. I notice that the oil is ejected on the first few shots. Question is, will this eventually foul the suppressor? If so, should I clean it out regularly? If so, how?
It may be I have nothing to worry about. I mean, I have seen no posts or complaints about this happening. I'm probably overthinking it... 😀
well the oil is to keep the O-rings. seals supple
I think you could go to every other cartridge if your concerned
the nest time you load a new cartridge, shoot the first shot or so on something white and see if oil is present or was what your seeing is just CO2
not sure on the oil accumulation in the LDC
My guess is yes, you are overthinking this. I've had my Chaser (and a few other SPA guns) for a while now, and have shot probably 100- 150 CO2 carts thru it. Each new cart gets a drop or two of oil on the head before it goes in, and I have not experienced any degradation in the functioning of the moderator.
Treat it like you would any other CO2 gun, and you should be fine. BTW, I've found that the factory moderator on the Chaser guns is just about the most efficient I've ever owned. These guns are REALLY quiet! Sounds about like a stapler, very neighbor-friendly.
I have a Chaser 22 , pistol only.
In search of an ldc I came across an eBay seller, froggy239
Here is a link to the ldc I bought from him
It is phht quiet
The length actually balances well with the pistol
If for some reason the link does not work you can search eBay for Diana Chaser ldc
LOL is pointless. Either you find it funny on its own, or you don't
Hiya guys! Thanks for your input!
I actually had an online chat session with one of the experts on PyramydAir website. He stated that, indeed, if the LDC has some kind of "stuffing", it will eventually become saturated with the oil we use on the CO2 cartridges. He then added, that most/all LDCs are NOT made that way - that includes the Diana LDC for the Chaser. So, there is really nothing to worry about. Furthermore, he stated, if you are hell bent on cleaning it, pour in some denatured alcohol, shake it up, pour out the juice and allow it to dry out.
I love easy answers! In this case - do nothing - the easiest answer of all ! 😀
well I wouldn't pour in anything but you could take the barrel off and stick the LDC in a container of alcohol and flush it out
Crosman oil is like the oil you would use in an pneumatic air tool
of course in would be easier if you could just take it off and soak it and of course you can
