    If you haven't already you should lube up the internals, not too much. Clean out the barrel, use at least .25g bbs, green gas/propane will work fine, and just remember to clean/lube it back up after each game.

    NO! Head to your local hardware store and get 100% silicon oil. Only 100% silicon oil though, stuff like WD-40 will not end pretty when it comes to airsoft.

    NO. WD-40 WILL RUIN YOUR GUN. Use gun cleaning oil or something of the sort.

    Edit: Sniped

    No, whatever you do do not use WD-40. I've heard frog lube which is originally meant for Real Steel firearms works wonders. But it's about 10 bucks a bottle. If you don't want to use that, you want to pick up something that is 100% silicone based. You may want to check this thread out for info on recommended brands: http://www.airsoftforum.com/board/Airsoft-Lubricants-Sili-t114544.html

    or use the search engine here.

    That is a pretty unique GBBR system you got there. I would just lube the rubber seal on the magazine. i wouldnt even try using green gas or mix oil with the propane. just one drop every game directly in the nozzle of the gun itself (try using a syringe if you have access to one).

    again, 100% silicone oil or another non-petroleum lubricant. its the petroleum that eats the rubber.

    straight propane is the best gas.

    -do not go crazy with lubing. stuff can go wrong fast, so will your accuracy too. nothing worse than a slippery BB or hopup unit.

    Lube too much and you get a swollen Hop-up bucking. As long as you have some silicone in the reservoir (assuming you're on propane): the gas system will take care of itself. But I don't know about GHK GBB kits, so GL with that.

    Any lube that is 100% silicone oil should work just fine. A gun store or hardware store should carry it.

    also for a trick, when on full auto i like to use a c clamp style grip on the gun to control the recoil more. which is still doable with a normal M4 hand guard.

    for storage its like any GBB but i dont know if you knew this before or not so i'll say it anyways. Empty your mags by shooting the gas out (dont dry fire) and do NOT press the gas release because this will damage your mag. Also leave a small amount of gas in it when storing. Also lube up your mag if your using propane, you'll thank me when your not spending $30 replacing broken mags.
