    Hi Everyone,

               Next week I'm going off to college and I was wondering what I should do to my custom .25 marauder(Cothran Valve, reservoir extension, etc) before I leave. It will most likely be three to four months before I use it again and I usually keep it in my cabinet at 2000psi. Would that be a good pressure to keep it at while I'm gone? Any other advice is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Matt

    I would keep it at the same pressure you usually do.  Shouldn't hurt a thing.

    You can send it to me. I promise to use it at least every other day! ;)

    clean and oil. With my firearms i clean, then run an oil swap through the barrel and don't clear out the excess oil. Oil all joints well. When you return, before firing be sure to run dry sawbs through the barrel and joints to remove excess oil. Dont store in a leather cases, if you have some silica packets that absorb moisture those are great to keep in the case with it to prevent rust or if its in a gun cabinet use the Damp-rid products, they work better for larger spaces .

    I have marauders I haven't shot in over 2yrs still holding pressure with no issues. Should probably sell them but I'm a pack rat and you cant have too many guns.
