    CKinnerly; can you post a guide to installing the inner barrel? It would be great as guidance for those that come after you! Does anyone know how the extended mags are progressing and when they will be available to order? To anyone planning to get one, check out airsoftworld as the price of the gun is great and the mags are cheaper than getting them from HK.

    I really like my WE but I stil have a stock V1 because additional parts are not available. As a stock version 1 it does work pretty well with propane but it really needs a better hop / barrel and there is no way it will cycle in this cold weather. Maybe by the summer WE parts will be available again.

    Going to try sealing my mags as some leak - is it this stuf you use (UK equivalent) http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/...yId_165691#dtab ?? Also, Otto, did you have to do anything to your v2 hop rubber to stop it from over hoping? I bought the barrel and rubbers a couple of months back but have not yet fitted them as most people I know who did have overhop problems. Finally, does anyone know any stores that are stocking the WE heavy grade BBs, ideally a UK retailer?

    I am having trouble finding the new V2 hop unit on AB. Is it the same hop unit as before but just with different barrel and rubber? Cheers in advance.

    I remember some people had problems when they cocked the charging handle, the trigger would cock but the firing pin would not. I am now having this problem and I had to stick my finger in lower receiver and cock it manually. I looked back but could not find a resolution. Are there any recommendations for fixing this issue? Regards,

    I also have missing steal nozzle o-ring. I am just away to send you a PM WETTI.

    I second that. If the new hop is available to purchase in a new M4, and has been for a couple of weeks now, then why have they not been made available to people with earlier version M4s as a replacement. I think this is the single most important upgrade to me, even above CO2, as the accuracy of the weapon is just substandard. I am more annoyed about not having this as I am about buying steel nozzles, weights and mag stop catches that are endorsed and either dont work or should not be used for their intended purpose. WETTI - a hop related update would be most appreciated. The only thing better than an update would be a hop related release!!

    Different manufacturers do have differing qaulity - but it has been so long since i used them I can not remeber who is good / bad etc. You do get two main types though - threaded and unthreaded so look out for that. One of the best places to get them are websites that sell them in bulk for CO2 bicycle pumps.

    For those of you in HK that do not have camping stores you should be able to find propane in shops that supply plumbers. Propane is used in torches to cut pipes. Propane is safer to use and transport (at least in the UK) as the presure is the same as green gas at 175psi @ 100 degrees F but propane is kept in regulated bottle types where green is in aerosol cans. Also, the gas chromatography and mass-spec analysis of green v's propane is identical as can be seen at the bottom of this page; http://www.airsoft-innovations.com/lab1.html The slight differences in the gas chromatography peaks is due to the added silicone.

    For the UK you dont need more FPS than the WE has to offer - that would make it hotter than any site would allow and probably fairly illegal. Regards the WE v's WA - Two guys from my site bought the WA a little while back - 5 months or so and have spent a fair bit on trying to get a hop that works. After trying my WE out the box they have put the WA's either on the shelf or for sale and replaceing them with WEs. I found the shooting experiance to be comparable bewteen them, but the WE more accurate and reliable (although it still has a couple of its own issues).

    Is there anywhere to pick up replacement bolts for the WE M4?

    Are all the ordering issues with AB resloved now? Airsoft buddy would you like to comment? I would really like to order 2 - 3 items from you but I heard there were some issues with communication and delayed shipping. I never heard if there was any resolution. I am not trying to muddy your name as I have the utmost respect for the support and information you have provided to this thread and this gun but I would like to know my parts would arrive in a timely fashion without worrying if I should have ordered from elsewhere. Regards,

    You might find TQM usefull too; http://www.tacticalquartermaster.co.uk/cat...680e70e924ea37c They have pages of spare parts for the WE - some of them are on the way though and are not yet in stock.

    Just placed an order for some TS one bolt catch plates. Will let people know how they perform as soon as I get them.

    Wet hop may be a problem as there seems to be a reasonable amount of lube in abbey ultra gas. I will be switching to using just propane from now on so hopefully the accuracy will settle in. WETTI, any updates on CO2 mag release dates yet
