Played with one last night.

 

Surprisingly nice fit and finish for WE.

Gun is lighter than expected, bolt is quite heavy, relatively, that makes firing cycle funny - every time the bolt moves pulls the rest of the gun in opposite direction.
Trigger pull with a lot of pre-travel, crisp but heavy break.

Safety switch is twitchy but FA/semi switch is smooth.

Magazine does have WA style valve lock.

No QD stock (I guess it should be on 1928 instead...?)

 

 

The M41A photo is from local GBB group in HK, owner says bolt travel needs to be reduced or it will hit and break the kit, he also says looking to fit a shotgun in the lower part....... and nope, it doesn't have 95 rounds magazine.

On the bright side, a pulse rifle is on the way. I could see them making a larger mag if WE went ahead and developed their own. There's a lot of space that could be used. 95 rounds seems possible, considering the action of the thompson wouldn't use too much gas. Using the entire mag space of the pulse would be more than enough. That and WE's double m4 mags seem to be working well so I would bet they could figure something out.

I'm deeply saddened by the plastic furniture but I will just look for a wood set once I pick one up .. I am so excited for it otherwise.

Real furniture will not fit. The grooves that its fit in are all different sizes. That being said, its also very expensive to buy m1 or m1a1 furniture. I guess not a lot of m1s were surplussed and instead all went to countries like South Korea and Israel after ww2. M1928 and m1928a1 furniture is cheap and plentiful, but is incompatible with the m1 variants apparently.

I'd say given the cost, it's better to see if RATech come out with a wood kit. It'll probably be cheaper then buying real steel, and won't need modification.

There is a video on YT with RS wood fitted. But not sure from which model.

RaTech has already presented a wood kit few days ago, I guess we have it in few weeks.

Does anyone know if RA-Tech is planning a steel kit? I know there is already another soon hitting the market.

Not that I know of. Mafioso have posted some steel parts on Facebook but not a fully kit I don't think.
 
Just had a look on Mafiosos Facebook and looks like they are indeed making a full steel kit but they have only released photos of some parts so far.
 
I would take a Mafioso kit over an RA kit every day of the week. RA are mweh... :|

Does anybody has an idea what material is used on magazines? Their very low weigth is quite surprising.

After the first game I have to say that I am positively surprised with the overall performance OOB (with just minimal mods). Especially with performance of WE’s bucking.

I cant say for certain, but given the weight, i would guess theyre made of actual aluminum, rather then the pot metal that most companies call aluminum. They did specifically mention 6061 when it was in development to it could be that. the weight certainly seems about right for something about that size, thats mostly hollow.

 

On the other hand, i was able to touch up the missing paint on the barrel (from the awful, impossible to remove, melted on orange muzzle kyairsoft insisted on) using normal aluminum blackener. From my experience in machining, 6061-T6 aluminum does not take blackener, so the barrel and receiver at least are probably a different alloy.
