    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.

    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.

    Glock Picture Thread

    Aznriptide859, would you recommend going for a kydex holster made for a G21 (rather than 17) to fit airsoft glock frames? Specifically WE G17? I have had issues with g17's fitting RS safarilands in the past but nothing a heat gun won't fix. Kydex will likely be different I suspect.

    No problem! good luck with the mod!

    Initial Impressions of the TM SOPMOD M4 AEG

    I have a dytac 16" outer barrel, specifically SPR, made for the sopmod/socom. Was thinking about doing another build with it, but can't seem to get around to it. It's yours if you want it (not for free of course ) pm me if interested.

    KJW M4

    That's an unexpected treat. Didn't personally hear anything about this!? However not really gonna spend $47 a mag for the look when I have 8 fully working mags already. Other Ppl will though! lets hope for more bits!
