I am making a (functional) Halo magnum prop, and am currently experiencing problems that I believe are connected to plunger lubrication. Before painting the blaster, I used teflon tape to cover pretty much the entire plunger head with a couple of layers (not too much though). At first, I used OMW silicone grease to lubricate the plunger, but after a couple of hours, the plunger tube is dry. Several weeks later I tried to solve that using Crosman pellgunoil for airsoft, but it was still not lubed enough. I decided that the plunger tube "lubrication level" did not have to be perfect. So I reassembled the blaster, primed it and fired it. My stock Maverick from a millennium ago had better performance. I took the gun apart, and removed the teflon tape above and below the O ring. Still, horrible performance. I've been tinkering with the air seal and springs for a couple of hours now, and I've come to the conclusion that I need advice. So.
Any guess on what I'm doing wrong?
