Exactly how do you silicon a *Hi-cap* mag? Do you just squirt some silicon oil down the bb feeding toob? How much should I use??

They have rubber O rings that get dry. Sometimes you can spray them and the silicon will penetrate. The best way is to tear them apart and get the O ring directly. Spraying down the feeding TUBE will only help if the bbs are getting stuck. This is usually because there is debris there so it is better to clean the bb feeder as opposed to hose it with silicon.

Obs, which o-rings are you referring to? I don't remember seeing any o-rings in my hicap mags.

He's talking about GBB and NBB mags. The poster did not clarify which kind.

I spray some down the 'toob' and open the door where you load BBs, and spray in there too. As for gas mags, never had to worry about it. As long as you use good gas (that has silicone in it) you should be fine.

I'm terribly sorry, I meant AEG hi-cap mags... not gas mags. Though I had been wondering how to silicone my GBB mags too. So no loss!
