How can you tell if a reg needs to be rebuilt or taken apart and worked on? How often does this need to be done?

If its leaking, recharge rate is slow, FPS varies quite a bit over the chrono, etc. Usually a good clean and lube will resolve most issues you maybe having. If that doesn't fix it then replacing o-rings most likely will.

what kind of lube should you use for regs?

I usually use Sleek 33 or Angel grease that I use for my A1 internals, there's been some debate on whether or not to use marker oil (couple of drops in the ASA on occasion), dry-fire 10-15 times with barrel removed, then wipe off any oil from the bolt to keep things lubed, I honestly have never had any problems doing that but some feel it will have a negative effect over time. If your using Co2 then you'll want to take things apart, clean and grease/oil a little more often, about every 5-7 cases or so. HPA about every 10-15 cases.

All depends on the reg. I had an AKA 2-liter that went years with nothing more than oil through the marker.
