I finally received my M226.  I originally ordered it in Nov. 2012.   Looking at the manual, I see very little info on maintenance.  Are there specific lube points?  Should I leave gas in the magazine?  I am still playing with the hop-up because the point of aim is off and it shoots very low.

Lubricate the grooves in the slide that ride on the rails on the frame. Just a really light coating of 100% pure silicon oil will do. No need to over do it. I like to keep green gas inside my magazines... they keep the o rings and seals lubricated, and haven't ever experienced an issue.

Thanks for the reply.  Should there have been a cleaning rod included?  If not, what is a good after market alternative?

Do you know if there are updated links? When I try to watch them they say they are private.
