I just want to confirm something. On the KWA M9 mags - are you occasionally supposed to put a drop of silicone lube right there on the valve - so that it seeps to the rubber seal below it?

Do you have to worry about lube being pushed into the valve when you try to fill?

Any general Magazine maintenance tips would be great, thanks!

K thanks.

I haven't used any lube on my pistols yet. I've only put a few hundred rounds through each since I got them a few days ago - but I found the manual lacking a touch - while it mentioned some places to put lube - some of the parts mentioned weren't in the schematic diagram.

All KWA Gas guns run on very very minimal amounts of oil.  In fact, just because it moves, does not mean it needs to be lubed.  And in most cases, Less is definitely more.  The reason why I do no advise simply adding oil to everything is that excessive amounts of oil can and will gum up your gun as debris and fowling makes it way into your weapon.  Now, you can add oil onto that valve if you want.  however, if you are using green gas, that should already have oil in the gas that will help maintain your seals and o-rings.  once in a blue moon, if you really want you can add a drop, but you do not need to do it regularly.
