I brought my KMP9 yesterday as an impulse buy at my local site after my AEG broke. I can truthfully say its the best purchase I have ever made. (THANK YOU KWA)

Could anyone give me any advice on general maintenance and general Do's and Don'ts.

Any help would be great.

Do NOT use Silicone Oil Spray. Many airsoft stores label it as 100% silicone oil spray. This swells the rubbers in KWA's gas guns and causes internal problems.

In order to maintain your KMP9, conservatively use the silicone oil included, as it should last you weeks, if not months. If you need more, order RC Shock Oil Wt. 30 from Amazon or some RC store.

I find this an understatement. Regardless of my political views, I'm pretty conservative about using the silicon oil. I still have my bottle half full from when I got it a year ago when I had purchased my M9 PTP. :gun:

Here's a don't: Try as hard as you can to avoid unnecessary cocking and dry firing. It's kool to do, but sucks when you eventually break a piece... =/

And do not use PROPANE.  I have tested propane in my KMP9 and the performance was very poor and created double firing and feeding issues.
Once in awhile take the bolt off then clean and lube lightly.  Don't need much silicone oil at all.  And also add a drop of silicone oil in the cylinder if you start to notice poor gas efficiency or gun performance.

Propane is a no-no? Ive used propane in my KWAs including my MP9 without issue.

All KWA guns were designed to work off of Green Gas. To receive optimal performance, use green gas. Using propane will give you harder recoil, giving you more wear on your internals, and will shorten the lifespan of your gun.

Not to mention it voids warranty.
