    Tokyo Marui KSG Gas Shotgun: First Impressions

    Did you end up using propane? If so how did it run?

    KJW M4

    Honestly they are still a solid rifle, version 1 and 2 at least and the waffle mags. The newer version 3 and the stanag mags I don't know about but I'd say they are also probably great as well, I don't think they are that different. But I just don't use mine any more! I had mine TDC moded, for the cradle bolt and parts and then never used it more than a couple of times but it's still a great gun. Mags still solid with no leaks. Shoots pretty well, though I havnt range tested it in a while. I moved on to WE and now GHK, both are much more customisable and able to accept real/airsoft parts more readily, you can add aftermarket rails etc to a KJW but its that little bit more difficult. I think the finish of the KJW is more like an airsoft gun, where as more recent M4 GBBr replicas are getting better finishes, materials, after market support etc. It is not to say that the KJW is defunct, it's still solid, it still runs well and is gas efficient, it kicks less than some GBBrs but more than any AEG. I still like mine, it has a special place in my heart as my first successful jaunt into GBBr, though I would sell if anyone wanted it just because I don't use it.

    DAS M4A1 BY GBLS Korea

    More video this time of the limited edition version with FPS and ROF demo Looks fairly consistent. You can see the flight path of the bb, looks to be over hopping, though they are firing at a slight incline angle I'd personally be more interested in accuracy. Anyway, enjoy: Also in the video I'm not a big fan of the noise it makes, #spoiltbyGBBr https://youtu.be/5jvjguTPfaw

    DAS M4A1 BY GBLS Korea

    https://youtu.be/RpzFZe0owkE Another video this time with 'testimonies' of ppl trying it out, a couple in English. The last chap described recoil as better than a TM AEG. I can only assume he is referring to TM NGR Also good comments on build quality though I would think the version on show is the 2.5k one!

    DAS M4A1 BY GBLS Korea

    New video, no new information, none that I can understand at least. I personally hope GBLS sell the 1st batch and go into higher production for the rest of the market I'm interested to try this out and see where they can go with it. https://youtu.be/0hapTcF3Nak

    DAS M4A1 BY GBLS Korea

    The interview was a good read, my interest is very much peaked! Will be eagerly watching this product. I wonder where they will house the battery, stock or fore grip? Could put some off if it was front wired, in particular if they are marketing to the 'Milsim' community who don't want to use battery boxes/ battery PEQ boxes etc and also want slim rails. Looking at the pictures id guess rear wired due to the GBBr like system and RS like take down feature.

    WE M14 Gas Blowback Rifle

    Yes Devilhunter! Also interested! Really good work. Any skirmish reports on its use/reliability etc?

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    Yeah that was a thought that crossed my mind. Had an issue today while working in my latest WE M4, the front sight id purchased (KAC Flip up type for an older SR16) did not fit... The roll pin holes were too close together, eg the holes did not align with the barrel holes. Is this an AEG vs RS spec issue? Any brands that will fit WE spec barrels? RS again?

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    That's pricey for the RS, I'm not happy spending 130 quid, better start saving. Will look at other options, eBay/import. Anyone modded a replica version?

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    Tried a search and couldn't find a helpful or definitive answer: Which ready mag systems will fit a WE M4/4168? I know a RS one will fit but I'm after a replica (G&P or ICS etc) as I'm not sure I can source an RS version in UK (please feel free to correct me on this!)

    "New Wave" Small Rice 7 (MP7) Review

    Very nice detailed review. I picked one of these up when they first came out but I haven't had the chance to properly open her up. A clean of trigger mech and internals helped but still very mushy semi auto response and I also got full auto on occasion when in semi which I assumed was due to problems with the seer tolerances. Will now open if up again and try the mod you've suggested. Also the hopup mod as it does have issues with adjustments. Just as an extra I have not seen any extra mags for this but the SMG-8 mags fit but require a minor mod to the serrations which interact with the mag catch. A small amount of fileing is all that's needed. Look forward to your future observations. And will report back with how my own mods go!

    Initial Impressions of the TM SOPMOD M4 AEG

    If your interested and I recall someone, possibly you, asking about a mk12 SPR outer barrel (dytac version) I have one or sale. (Sorry for the shameless plug guys)

    WE MP5k "Apache" - Initial Impressions.

    Thanks for your views on the WE, glad others are talking about it! I'm also after the collapsible stock model, gonna wait for that till I buy but always good to hear how it performs. Let us know how you get on with shooting!

    KJW M4

    There's a Facebook group? To be honest I've gone over to using WE GBBr's and haven't skirmished the kjw for a long while, though I've lent it out and ppl have been impressed. I did test it today on the new WE Nuprol 3.0 and... Shock horror, one of my mags had a little leak! Quick tweak with Allen key seemed to solve it but I should really service the mags, they've been stored so long. As for European KJW, owners (UK) I don't personally think I need stanag mags. And I have never seen another KJW M4 over here, though I know they are about. Demand in UK will be very low I'm afraid.

    WE MP5k "Apache" - Initial Impressions.

    Nice review Chef, thanks for reposting it, keep your updates flowing. I always prefer a succinct and practical review like yours to ones that go on with themselves. hopefully the good turn out of the K will transcribe over to the A3 version (or whatever the folding stock variant is known as these days) when it's released. Most initial reviews of the apache seem very positive, wish I'd waited rather than picking up the WE/New wave super rice 7 (etc) MP7, as although it's well made externally it has issues and I'm not satisfied I could skirmish it at the moment as you have with the Mp5k. Time will tell, but once I pick up a WE mp5a3 I'm certain I'll find the mp7 as a redundant purchase.
