Regular maintenance of your firearm ensures that it performs flawlessly for its entire life and minimizes headaches. Simple, inexpensive parts, such as recoil springs and pins can make all the difference, and the good folks at US Firearms Manufacturing Company have made this kit for their Zip 22 pistol available to make sure you have all of those parts.
ZiP will provide the most enjoyment when properly maintained. ZiP engineers believe that ZiP has an unlimited life. Certain components are meant to be replaced (in the field) as they fatigue or wear, (most pistol manufacturers suggest a 5000 round life) so certain parts are engineered to be a simple replacement at nominal cost, restoring ZiP to 100% Life.
Just like tires on your car, they need to be replaced after a certain amount of tread wear. The replacement of these basic components varies with use especially due to ammo selection, care and maintenance, etc. ZiP engineers believe that ZiP has an unlimited life when properly maintained.
To maintain ZiP operating at 100% simply follow the recommendations on cleaning and maintenance and replace these components about every 2,500 (CCI Stingers, etc.) - 5,000 (All other rounds.) Due to ammo some may find replacement necessary earlier, middle or later. The ZiP is a tuned or balanced action and especially the springs, etc, do not have an unlimited life.
