Understand that many silicone sprays cause issues with KWA buckings and swelling.  I wouldn't use the wet version at all.  If you use the dry, only use on large moving parts on GBBs like the slide.  Never use either on AEG's

While silicone lubricants are recommended I have to say I'm very impressed with the results of Froglube, commonly known as a real steel CLP. So far it's been excellent for the mechanical parts as well as the rubber/o-rings on all 3 of my KWA GBB's. It may be more expensive but I figure it's worth it, considering I only run propane it's probably ideal that I make up for that loss in gun health elsewhere.

Never use silicone on the hopup or the barrel, really silicone sprays have no place in Airsoft other than maybe the BCG. Some silicone sprays will even deteriorate paints and coatings.

For GBBs I use 20-30wt R/C shock oil (pure silicone), I also use Super Lube Dri-Film on the rails and slide.  I also use DF on my LM4's bolt on the outside.  I like it because no dirt is attracted.

For AEG's I use the same shock oil in the cylinder and on o-rings.  I use Super Lube Synthetic grease on the gears and large moving parts.

A number of people are moving to Frog Lube, while expensive initially, and it requires special application, I have heard it gives an outstanding result.  I may actually try it once I run out of what I currently have....in about a year or so, LOL!

Froglube! Do it! I promise you won't regret it, it even smells nice!

Edit: They claim you can even eat it, which I've tried :P It's not bad!

Oh no, it just barely begins to explain things... Hey, maybe it will clean/lubricate/preserve MY internals too!

To buy it you'll want to look on Amazon or some other USA gun store site, as they only distribute it here in the states if I'm not mistaken.
