You can use silicone oil to clean the inner barrel if its really dirty, but you don't have to. Avoid getting it on the hopup rubber. I wouldn't use Pellgun oil for that (which isn't a synthetic oil). I usually use rubbing alcohol to clean out dirt etc. part of the reason being the fouling you'll get in the inner barrel will partly be atomized oil/silicone from the gas which then attracts dirt. The alcohol helps clean that up (versus throwing more oil onto it). You can clean the inner barrel with a bit of lightweight silicone oil after the alcohol with a stock inner barrel, but a lot of upgraded inner barrels are either polished or coated so you don't need to (and it may adversely affect performance by prematurely attracting dirt).
