Well, run the mags dry and put grease where you feel its needing it and you should be fine.

The action should be smooth.

Keep everything that has friction with synthetic grease (without petroleum derivates) and keep all your rubber parts oiled with light silicone oil.

As for the barrel, clean it with a plastic cleaning rod, not a metal one. Don't put oil in the barrel as well.

White lithium grease could be good for AEGs (gears) but as for a GBBR, there is no reason to use it. Stick to synthetic grease like this one;

Synthetic Grease @ CT.

Like I said, you should use light silicone oil on everything that is made from rubber on the gun (nozzle o-rings) and on your magazine's seal.

does that grease work or gbbp's? like on the hahmmer assembly for example. i've using superlube but it's hard to come by where i live and i've always been too scared to switch to that one.

i used it in other sports equipement and it creates a sort off gunky substance.

keep an eye on the op rod. its the rod connected to the charging handle. its not one piece and the tube that contains the spring and spring guide is only pressure fit on. once it pops off, you wont be able to cock the gun. to fix this i just put some jb weld around the fitting and hammered it back on. been solid ever since. also keep an eye on your trigger assembly. the pin that holds the trigger in place tends to unseat itself, causing a "chunky" or hard trigger pull. again a dab of JB on the wide pin head now keeps it in place.

I'd say the bolt catch, #53 is using itself really quickly. Apparently, the trigger box will break within 10k BBs.

I've had the "bolt" break on mine, but I don't know how, it just snapped where it's connected to the charging handle.
