... It's not like you've been shooting corrosive BB's... it wont melt your barrel or anything... Trying to "McGuyver" it up is a good way to ruin an otherwise fine AEG...

In airsoft there's two ways of doing things... There's "Good enough" and "Right" ... That separation is the difference between a tinkerer and a real guntech.

In all seriousness. Yes I do tinker. I probably will mess up the AEG if i get too far into it.

Its just so much more interesting learning hands on for me.

Maybe i'll just wait and read a bit more.

In all fairness the youtube and Mechbox videos are awesome. even if they dont show your particular gun (ie it shows a TM and you have a KWA) chances are its a clone and therefore mostly similar. not looking to get flamed here as i am sure people will be able to point out all sorts of other differences but the key components seem to be the same. just be careful opening your gear box if you do as the prick can fly apart like a pinata exploding. be very delicate the guts are like the inside of a watch but if I can do it with my fat, shakey, coffee induced paulsy hands I'm sure you can too. Oh and make sure there arent any spare parts left over after you put it back together.

Ya..i dont really see a reason to dive into the mechbox. I just wanted to take it apart and look inside, see where everything goes.

Theres been a couple rusty things, and i mean ORANGE rust, the really bad kind. On things like a spring that goes over the barrel, i've cleaned some rust off of some nuts that attach the rails as well.

Seeing that made me curious as to what else was rusty, or better yet - why there was even rust.

The only thing you should worry about cleaning right now is the barrel, if you REALLY want to, this is not real steel lol. Don't touch the mechbox until you are completely confident, or have a gundoc you can send it to if you mess up. :P

Just find a takedown video and follow it to the point where you can remove the barrel. Your q-tip train should work, I have done it :P I would suggest getting a real cleaning kit though, much better.

As for oil, stay away from anything that eats rubber! Stick with silicone, I personally use the the 1.5wt oil i got with my gungas kit from airsoft innovations. It is a fairly common suggestion here to get 'shock oil' from an RC shop.
In this case, the oil is just there to pick up dust and other crap that is in the barrel, once you finish cleaning it, get the oil out! You do not want that stuff sitting there lubing up your BBs!(make sure to remove the hopup unit as well, you dont want oil on that either unless your soaking it)

Good luck, and welcome to airsoft!
