    Ok I bought a WE Glock g27 gbb pistol a while ago . Only fired her a few times . The other day I oiled it plus my aeg with proper silicone lube oil . Now today I tried firing it and it won't even fire a full mag of bb's . The mag empties itself of gas within 5 shots and needs refilling ,?? Any help lads ??

    Where exactly did you oil and how much did you use

    Bring it along to Tigerland tomorrow and we'll take a look at it.

    And now you have more than likely not fecked it up so rest easy on that one. Is the magazine holding the gas when you will it i.e. is there any sound of leaking gas after it is filled? Could well be that you are not filling the magazine completely perhaps down to incorrect technique of your gas cylinder is almost empty.

    Check the little nut on the bottom of the mag to see if it needs to be tightened with a small allen key as the gas might be seeping out through the seals. Otherwise, like another poster said, you might not be filling the mag properly. The gas can nozzle needs to be inserted straight into the filler valve otherwise you'll get gas spilling out the sides and you might think the mag is full.

    Are you filling the mag upside down (the correct way )

    If its not a mag seal issue ,i think you may have over lubed the blow back housing ie the piston O ring ,

    Or if the mag is cold when using it you might be getting cool down try warming the mag before using it

    I've noticed that it will work perfectly sometimes and other times it seems to loose gas through the top slide as it recoils ?
