This is why we tell people to use green gas instead of Propane. It will eventually break down the internals of your gun. Do you have a good cleaning practice? How long have you had the gun?
Give us some more info if you can. We will try to help.

Most likely the propane tank you're using is mostly empty. How old is the tank? How many mags have you filled with it? More details are needed. As for propane hurting your gun I believe that is mostly a safety net for the warranty service. I've been using dry propane on 3 KWA guns and my local players have been doing the same for years with no issues aside from the occasional o-ring replacement or gasket leak. As for myself I have 8 MP7 mags, 3 MK 1911 mags, 4 LM4 mags and none of them have had issues due to propane.

Where? He didn't say just started, just that after the warranty, he started using it. Could have been months ago, could have been last year. That's why I asked for more info...

The trick is to buy it in bulk. My teammate gets green gas at a cost of ~$3.00 per can, though he had to buy a ton of them at once. If you're into that kind of thing then there's the solution.
