If not, where can we buy the lube that you guys supply?

Go to an R/C store and find clear silicone shock oil.  I believe (please correct me if I am wrong Aliizard/Spiggy) that you can use 30 or 35 weight oil. :gun:

What about spraying the lube on a q-tip then applying the lube to the GBB?
Which areas on the gas magazine should get lube? Finally I just bought an SR7 and should lube/clean that before firing it? Parts like the barrel, hop up, and magwell.
Personally I think there should be a video on all of the things I mentioned because most newer players, such as myself, are clueless as to where and what to clean.

Thanks to all of you at KWA USA for the great product and support!

  • No spray lube should be used.  Use the silicone oil that comes with the gun.
  • The magazine for the most part should remain dry to avoid fowling of the BB's, the valve will lubricate through the use of green gas
  • Regarding your SR7, cleaning the barrel is never a bad idea.  Keep it dry and only use cloth patches (I prefer cotton), clean after each use.
  • Do not lube the hop-up.  The unit, including the bucking, should remain clear of lubrication to work properly

Are y'all gonna make a 'Spiggy's Advanced Tips' video? I'm very interested to see what he has to say... :D

When we get the chance to do so...holiday season has kept us very busy. Look for the series to continue around February, sorry we can't get it out any earlier.

How about a series on the top 10 (or more) things NOT to do to your gun?

I could probably make that myself... :lol: But, I would be interestind if you listed things most people might do, but wouldn't think is bad for your gun. And/or other things you just wouldn't think of.

Hmm, let me try...

1. Trying to remove the trigger guard on an M4 (any model) without using a roll pin punch is a bad idea.  A regular punch results in a high risk for a broken lower receiver.
2. Cleaning the barrel with a big a** wad of paper (or cloth for that matter) to the point of rotating or pushing in the barrel and destroying the hop-up bucking will cost you 15.00 for a new bucking.
3. If a little oil is good THEN A WHOLE LOT MUST BE THE sh*t!!!!! - Keep the barrel and bucking DRY PEOPLE!!!
4. Along the same lines..."Since I'm not supposed to use propane because I'm told not to and I do and I put lots of silicone to make up for the fact that there isn't any in propane and my bucking is now swollen...why won't my my gun fire right?
5. I have no idea how to take my GBB MP7 (or any other gun) apart.  Now it doesn't work, is this under warranty?
6. Everyone says that the 2G bucking is the best...why won't my Systema bucking fit?
7. Two words...CROSSMAN BB's. Cheep BB's break guns...period.
8. Don't take apart the gearbox if you haven't been shown how to do it. Remember, see one, do one, teach one.  It will save you many headaches!
9. Not reading the instructions. Really, like did you know that on a GBB pistol the mag needs to be removed before you attempt to field strip the slide.  If you don't believe me, try it and be ready to send the gun in for repair!
10.Don't tighten the screw on the grip end plate just because it's there! It does adjust the motor height and can effect performance.

As I re-read this it seems to have taken on the imaginary narrative of fictitious, or not, thread misters. DISCLAIMER - "The events depicted in this post, while based on factual events are..well...real.  However, any similarity to any forum member living or dead is merely coincidental."

But they DON'T show you how. Once you get your gun, it's yours so you can do what ever you want but don't give instructions to others on how to do it on this forum if prohibited by law.

The pistol used in this video was one of the original prototypes of the MK Series pistols and was used for display at SHOT Show. Display pieces do not have the tip, this is not a fielded product in the video.

Isn't it still legal to transport an airsoft gun without an orange tip, you just can't sell an airsoft gun with the orange tip removed? That's what that 798 bill was about banning, right?

Just want to say thanks for the video, Both part one and two. I just bought the Mark III and I was going to start loading the mag and letting it eat but I figured I should check to see if there was any pre-fire steps for brand new guns and poof there was..So thank you helping this airsoft newbie..Looking forward to the advanced tips..

Side question. How come you don't talk about a light oiling and I mean light on the outer part of the gun to prevent rusting since it is metal? I do this to my service weapons. Yes I know they are real and airsoft are not but?

My service weapons rarely need to be oiled on the exterior as they have highly durable surfaces.  My airsofts are aluminum alloy or polymer which does not rust.  Some CLP on my (real) M4 barrel is about all that's needed.  A wipedown with a silicon cloth make 'em look good.
