Just got my KWA M4A1 RIS (I believe it is the same as the standard M4a1 with the exception of the added RIS rails.)

When should I "oil" it for the first time, and do I oil the magazine to and where

When should I clean the barrel for the first time.

Also, When I eject the magazine, About 3 BBs fall out of the gun. Is this normal??? We are talking about the standard hi-cap magazine that comes with the gun.

Other then that, everything is good so far

Any other additional hints or tips are appreciated

1. you don't oil the magazine.
2. you clean the barrel BEFORE you use the gun and you can clean it as often you like.  Read the instruction manual.
3. 3 bbs fall out is normal as there is gap from the magazine to the hopup chamber where BBs are waiting to be feed.

First, you lube the magazine, it comes pretty lubed, so you won't need to worry about that for a while.

Second, clean the barrel after every day of use with the stock barrel. When you upgrade the barrel, you will probably need to lube it more often.

And third, that is normal, all hi-cap mags do that.

That's about it, good luck :)

1st: "lube" it every once in a while to keep everything looking good

2nd: right when you get it

3rd: yeah, every gun does that, hicap or not

P.S. why are we repeating waht Allizard said brooklyn468

If you need any insight on how to clean the barrel and bucking here's a few helpful links for you.

Topic started by me and others on how to clean the barrel

Step by Step Tutorial on how to clean barrel

For opening the upper receiver, just use the manual like what Allizard and everybody else says. If that doesn't help, here's another link for visual assistance.

Maintaining KWA M4 RIS


These links helped me a lot and hopefully they will help you too. The people above me are very knowledgeable and its good to go to them for help because they assisted me when I first got my gun.
