Hey Everybody,

I know this sounds silly, but where do you oil a 1377 and a 2240? Aside from lubing the tip of a Co2 cartridge, the owner's manual says, "Put a drop on the pump cup..." but I have no idea what a pump cup is. Could somebody please reply with perhaps even a photo of the infamous pump cup?

Thanks again for your time and take care-

pump your 1377 and have the pump arm @ 90 you will see the pump cup from the slot close to your trigger guard. a squirt or 2 in front of the seal will lube it. Need to oil, moving/pivot points to keep it healthy.
Here's pic from AC's and it's the gap opposite the pump arm. This has flat top and your should have a black pump cup vice o-ring.

Thanks for the reply! I assume you are talking about the gap on the left of the photo near the black ring (actually, on the left of the ring)? Again, thanks for your help and assistance!

Please - somebody please toss me a bone. Where the heck is the infamous pump cup?!? Where else to lube a 1377 and 2240? Yes, I might need a detailed pic with arrows. No, I am not too smart...

there is a flat top piston but the pump cup would be where the end of the aluminum piston is located. Couple of drops of oil in that space will do you good.

Thank you, thank you, thank you - greatly appreciated. I was almost sure that was the area but just wanted to make sure as I didn't want to damage my pricy custom pumpers. Again, thank you very much!!!
