I've got an excellent working, upgraded, perfectly maintained open bolt PDW for sale!

Past that, clean your barrel every 2-3 games, depending how many rounds you put down range.
so when the batteries still in fir 2 rounds with no clip and that depress the spring?

Replaces the crappy plastic parts and wiring manufacturers insist on installing to save cost and ruin their reputation and installs dean connectors. He installs any new parts I have for it (UBR stock, front kits whatever) and makes the upgrades I need all at the same time.

It's not for every budget but on the other hand, I don't have 6 crappy guns that cost a fortune in maintenance and never work properly. I have two excellent guns that shoot far and straight, 1 excellent pistol, 1 nice WW2 Thompson that will go through the process soon, just got the wood kit and the metal lower for it. Name another serious sport that don't take their equipment to a professionnal!

Don't buy cheap and dont skimp on good upgrades that work well together. The worst thing you can do in any project (not just airsoft) is to buy a cheap piece of 废话 and try to make it work as well as a quality item by adding a ton of parts that are not made to work together as a whole.

Regarding maintenance, 100% oil free silicon on a rag through the barrel twice in the summer. Dont leave any oil in the barrel and don't go all the way you might break the rubber hopup. Send the gun to your Gundoc during the winter season to repair/replace any item that is broken or on the point of breaking. A squirt of silicon oil in your mags twice in the summer or after playing in the rain. Dont over do it, it will trap dirt and create more problems then good.

Sorry for rambling
any good gun docs in orillia/barrie, the hobby place is where i used o go but i think they shut down :S

AND ITS CALLED MAGAZINE or MAG.

Lightweight RC Shock oil is a quick solution (I use Team Associated 15wt RC Shock oil). Beware of the spray silicone lubes but if it's from an airsoft manufacturer you should be fine (eg. ICS silicone spray, TM silicone spray, UTG silicone spray, etc.) TBH most companies have them these days including SRC, KA, HFC, STTI, PForce, etc.

I'm not sure why people are always after the oil. I bought one bottle as a noob back in 2007. I've used a bit less than a quarter. I got two small bottles from propane adaptors, and one with a rifle. The smaller bottles haven't even been cracked open yet. I'm guess some people are being very liberal with the amount they use.
