    Can a G&G GR16 use M4 Magazines?:confused: I have a GR16 and want to get some mid caps for it and I'm wondering if I can just use any standard M4 mid cap magazine. I need a response SOON! And also, what type of lubricant should I use to lube my mags?

    Yes, they can. MAG brand mags are a great way to go.

    This is the best stuff to use to lube your magazines when they need it:

    Remember, just a drop or two will do for a long time, you don't want lube on your bbs.

    Thank you Knief!:) And stroop, thank you for your absolutely useless & discouraging comment. Yes I am very new to the sport. I just got into it like a month ago. I was pretty sure that it accepted M4 mags but I just wanted to confiirm it.

    Knief, are you sure about lubing mags?
    From what I've gathered, it isn't beneficial enough to be worth it

    I found it to be highly beneficial to my 120 round CA(?) G36 midcaps, which I had bought used. They seemed kind of stiff, so I took some silicon oil and some ****** .12g bbs, and loaded and unloaded the mag like 5 times. Much better feeding.

    Really? Because since it is an oil, similar to not wanting lube in your barrel, won't it stick to dust and dirt? And you run the risk of getting lube on your BB's

    Like I said, don't use much and only if you have to. When you're breaking in mags or the follower is starting to stick, just a drop of lube can help free things up. You're right, you don't want it really getting on your bbs or collecting crap. That's why you use a very small amount.
