Also put some around the bucking (where the bucking and the barrel meet), then after re-installing the barrel into the hop-up you can also wrap Teflon tape around the hop-up chamber and the barrel (where they meet). I'll put some pictures up when I get the chance if someone doesn'tbeat me to it.

Regardless of whether it's necessary or not, it doesn't hurt to do so. You may as well take all precautions to make the rifle better than to leave something out thinking "It's not necessary." I do it anyways.

I do both (Around my bucking, then also around the hop-up chamber). I have never personally had a problem with groupings or with the tearing of the bucking. I guess it's still personal experience/preference.

As for how many layers around the cylinder, i usually wrap it about twice very tightly. Teflon tape isn't very strong so the threads will tear the tape so you don't want to only put one wrap of it on.
