An oring is an oring is an oring...

But not always.

Orings are the cause for many of the gun problems I see. You might think it's leaky orings but actually many gun problems are due to the wrong orings. The hammer, or as some call it, the striker, in many stacked tube blow back guns (Spyders, Piranhas, Brass Eagle, etc.) takes an oring that is the same physical size as a tank oring. A tank oring will work for a while, making the gun owner think he has fixed the gun, but it won't work forever.

The actual hammer oring is soft, something to do with durometer, in order to provide a proper seal against the blow back pressure that recocks the marker. Paintball guns are really pretty simple. My Dad would joke about always having a few left over bits and parts after working on the car. It doesn't work that way on a paintball gun. Every piece is necessary. Each piece is required. And every oring has it's place.
