I got my lm4 about a month ago and ive put about 2000 rounds through it. I was wondering what silicone oil i should use to lube up the o ring things in the bcg and the mags. I would also like a link to the product because there are so many different products that i dont know which is the recommended one. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Flubberducky, KWA recommends that you use 100% pure silicon oil, and not that spray stuff. Try to use anywhere from wt 20 to wt 30 silicon oil. Forum members also use GHK oil: http://shop.ehobbyas...e-oil-30ml.html

You can find 100% pure silicon oil at an R/C Hobby shop.

I would just get 30wt silicone oil. easier to come by and doesn't have to be shipped. I have about the same amount of rounds through the gun and have been using that since it was new and its cycling very well. I like the 30wt because its a bit "stickier" in that I can apply a thin film to the whole Bolt Carrier Group and Charging handle and it wont drip off.

Some forum members also use a Dri Film Lubricant, mainly for the BCG I believe. I think Silicon oil might be better for the O-rings
