Did you store the mags with gas in them? Is there any gas left in them at all, like when you just touch the gas release valve do you still feel pressure?

Don't force anything of course, if removing the barrel (inner or outer) gives more resistance than normal then Id apply a small amount of silicone oil to ease them out. If after all this all appears normal I'd try and fire off a round or two and see if anything has changed in its performance.

Do not put the thing on a heat source or anything as rapid cooling and warming can defect the metal parts, possibly beyond repair. As always though when in doubt do some research or get a hold of a gun doc that knows GBBs.

Hope nothing has been too farked as that sounds like a beaut of a pistol!
Though I don't have time or space to test fire right now, I did quickly check the pistol a few hours ago and the mags still had pressure in them. They were all half full the night before the incident. Would any of the rubber parts freeze and crack? What about the inside of the BBU. WOuld anything there be worn? How would I figure that out? By eyeballing you can't really see if nearly brand new rubber is damaged can you?
