Blowback Questions

Based on the education I received on a recent thread and from a lot of reading on the internet, I may soon get a KWJ KP05 and I need to understand the following points on blowback guns in general.
1. What stops the slide from coming off and slamming into your face?
2. Why clean and lube the barrel, slide rail and other parts after each shooting session if I only shoot indoors ?
3. I always understood that silicone oil is not advised on metal to metal contact
on pellet guns and pellgun oil (i.e Crosman) should be used- so
why not the same process on airsoft pistols?
4.Is silicone oil or pellgun oil used to lub the tip of each CO2 cartridge?
Thanks again!

Ok I will try my best to answer these seriously...

1 First off the slide, exact same as why real steel ones don't hit you in the face they slide back hit compress the spring and then it engages it back forward.

2 since you are over 18 it's the same reason you would clean and lube anything else... Use some common scenes on that one.

3 silicone oil is not recommended for rubber and not recommended for the heat of real steel guns. Over time on Airsoft guns if you don't clean them often the silicon oil will gum things up.

4 why would you oil your Co2? I suppose you could but I'm not sure why?

With regards to #4 I can see putting a small drop of lube on the top of the co2 cartridge before inserting it into the mag to be a good thing it will ensure that the oring that seals against the co2 doesnt get dry and will ultimately prevent leaking

A drop of pellgun oil is the accepted practice for CO2 pellet guns. I just wondered if a drop of silicone is used for airsoft CO2 guns instead.
