The swabbing of bucking with a DRY Q-tip in AEGs is to clean the grease/contaminants from the contacts. No where does it say to swab it with a q-tip soaked in silicone oil.

The video on this KWA site tells you to swab the bucking. What the?


The KWA DIY series GBB Maintenance Part 1 -- The Basics

At 4:20 to 5:20 they tell you to clean with a q tip, then put a small dab of Silicon oil on a clean q tip and swab the inside of the hop up.

Peace

Swabbing  the bucking is done to remove packing greese if it is presant.  The small amout of silicone used in the video is far less then any that would cause the bucking to swell and any subsequant issues.  If you are having issues with BB's getting stuck in the barrel then the bucking may swollen (if silicone was used extensively) or simply the hop-up is turned on too high.  Turn down the hop-up and see if the issue continiues.  If it does, let us know.

i broke my ATP because i swabbed the barrel with a gunswab with silicone oil and then i took it outside in 42 degree weather and shot the gun my problem was caused by a swollen bucking, if you have done any of this it could have caused a problem
