My KWA M4a1 is making some usually loud screehy sounds after I got a jam. It sounds like the gears but I'm not sure what to do and my warrenty is up.

Check if any foreign objects have fallen inside your gear box through where the spring guide opening is.

I checked as much as I could and didn't find anything but the gears are covered in dry silcon oil.

Did you re-lube your gearbox while you were in there?

I wasn't really inside the gearbox I just opened the top reciever and sprayed some silcon oil down the spring guide onto the gears.
