clean the barrel carefully with the hop turned off. That is all you need to do on a new gun. Leave it alone until it breaks for other stuff.

Fair enough. Fairly simple. And just use silicon lube for the cleaning?

nope, don't put silicone in the barrel, it'll get on your hop rubber and make it useless. I clean my barrel with a cleaning rod, a square of tissue made damp and pull through using clean tissue until it comes out clean, then repeat once more but with a dry square of tissue.

 

But 100% remember to turn off the hop before sticking a cleaning rod in there.

no, turn the hop all the way off so there is no backspin applied to the BB when it fires
