In general, should i be using a silicon oil/spray or some type of grease? Apologies if this is a rather dumb question.
GBB: You have to use a little bit of silicon oil/spray in GBB mags to keep the seals wet (see propane tank adaptor), when they dry they shrink. Which means the gas will leak out. When you fire your gbb the sillicone will lube some of the parts in your gbb. Use a good grease for the rest of the moving parts. Don't put any grease/silicone into the inner barrel unless your cleaning it (twice a year?), it will affect your bb's by sticking to them and they will fly all over the place.

AEG: Use a little bit of silicon oil in your mags once in a while, not much, just so it slides easily and help push the bb's up into the hopup. Cleaning your AEG to often will lead to problems. Don't put any grease/silicone into the inner barrel unless your cleaning it (twice a year?), it will affect your bb's by sticking to them and they will fly all over the place.

An airsoft is not a firearm. AEG have a lot in common with a drill. You dont do a lot of maintenant on a drill. GBB's are more like compressors, you need a little bit of maintenance.

finally, Youtube is your friend
M4 AEG Basic Maintenance - YouTube

Hope this helps
