    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    I cut off a piece of the rubber, but the BBs have not started to roll out. It just reduced the hop-up to a much lower level. I'd have to test-shoot it to find out exactly how low weight BBs I can use, but it's definitely reduced and the BBs aren't rolling out. The weight is in a way irrelevant, because it has way enough inertia to positively knock the the BB forward. Whether it's 150 grams or 250 grams doesn't matter. After the BB has been brought into motion, the key is the velocity and how far it is pushed. It could be a too hasty return stroke and/or a too long nozzle. (I'm not saying it is, but could be.) I'm thinking it's possible that the system somehow traps air into the blowback system on the forward stroke, and the blow of air is enough to push the BB past the hop-up rubber. Just a thought. With regular GBB pistols the excessive gas is bled out because the nozzle and magazine are disconnected, but the WE M4 mag retains a tight seal with the blowback cylinder at all times. When the moving parts are coming forward and the nozzle has just entered the black rubber chamber, where does the remaining air in the system escape as the bolt carrier and nozzle move the final few millimeters forward? I think the only way out is from the gap between the BB and inner barrel – and that gap is small. -Sale

    Hmm, now I've got a shredded #122 as well. I noticed the entire piston/nozzle assembly was loose within the bolt carrier, so it has definitely caused #122 to hit the blowback cylinder on the way forward. The piston head should definitely be redesigned. I think the Nine Ball Dyna piston head would make a great archetype. A larger front flange, ports to expand the O-ring and a beefy O-ring instead of a fragile "skirted" Y-ring. That's my wish list: A great seal but more durability. Another improvement would be some blue loctite on the flat-head screw #36 that secures the piston to the bolt carrier. Just make sure you don't get any of that agent on the O-ring #37. -Sale

    Well if you lock the screw in place with red locktite, it'll be nippy in the place where all the good music is when it comes apart. But I do have to admit that your roll pin solution is quite neat. -Sale

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    Hmm, I was just looking at the bolt carrier and charging handle. Instead of trying to add stuff on a real aluminum charging handle, why not weld some additional metal on the steel bolt carrier instead? That should be easy even with basic welding tools, and you can finish it with a file. Then you could use any RS charging handles – drop-in. -Sale

    Forged, yes, but not out of steel. You could TIG weld some aluminum on it, but it's really really tricky business. You need a seriously skilled welder for aluminum. I'd finish it with a file to get a nice flat surface. Hmm, then those steel charging handles must be finished poorly, because the steel bolt carrier with its polished contact surfaces doesn't seem to wear out the aluminum receiver and buffer tube it's moving in. But I do agree. The real AR-15 has an aluminum charging handle, so if only for realism the WE handle should be aluminum as well. The problem is that we're comparing forged aluminum parts to die-cast ones. (Goes for the receivers as well, by the way.) It's perfectly normal and realistic too. It's one of the things that my shooting mate noted and complimented when I demonstrated the WE M4 to him. When you pull the trigger #57 (which also acts as a sear), the hammer #50 drops. When the bolt carrier #33 cycles and cocks the hammer, the hammer is held back by the disconnector #54. As you reset the trigger, the disconnector lets go of the hammer, but by that time the sear (trigger) is already able to catch the hammer and hold it back. In full auto the disconnector is disabled from catching the hammer by the selector #72. When the bolt carrier cycles and cocks the hammer, the hammer is caught by the full-auto sear #48. As the bolt carrier returns to battery, it hits the top of the full auto sear, causing the hammer to fall again without interruption. This is 100% the same principle and sequence how the firing mechanism of a real safe-semi-full AR-15 variant works as well. Just the part numbers and the look are different. -Sale

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    A couple of reasons that explain the perceived difference in recoil between the WA and WE: - The WE is heavier, weighing the same as the real thing. Of course the underweight WA kick is going to feel better. - The WA has a loose recoil spring. The return stroke is sluggish to be honest. It doesn't slow down the bolt carrier on the way back much. Put a loose recoil spring in the WE if you want to feel the shock against your shoulder.

    The RS charging handle is drop-in into the WE, and functions 100% the same. They also feel exactly the same for the looks, balance... It's ridiculously close. (Save for a catch, read on...) For kicks I tried to fit the WE handle into the real one but it wouldn't let the bolt carrier all the way forward. Here's the reason: The WE handle has an enlargement at the front, which engages the WE bolt carrier. (The front of the charging handle has a lug to pull the BC back, with a hole through it for the gas key and gas tube.) The real charging handle does not have this enlargement, so it does not engage the WE bolt carrier with the same contact area as the WE charging handle. This contact area can be insufficient, and I could see the WE steel bolt carrier wearing the real charging handle gradually to the point that the front lug of the charging handle slips on top of the bolt carrier and causes a jam. My advice would be to stick to the WE handle. If the first batch had fragile ones, get the new as a WE spare part. I've given the WE charging handle a good tugging both in the WE and my real one (although the WE handle didn't quite let the real BC all the way forward), and I'm convinced that it can take a beating. Change the locking latch if you want to, but leave the handle itself stock. -Sale P.S. I'm writing a rather detailed article of this GBB carbine for the next issue of Airsoft Soldier magazine, so if you found the above input useful, make sure you get your hands on issue #4 when it comes out. http://www.airsoft-soldier.com

    G&G G34 outer barrel? http://redwolfairsoft.com/redwolf/airsoft/...il?prodID=15923 AFAIK it should be a direct fit to a G17/G18C. These models share all parts except for the slide, outer barrel and inner barrel. As the parts in the frame are the same, the cam surfaces of the outer barrel should fit without any hassle. -Sale

    PGC has recently updated their metal slides for the Glock 17. The new ones are 0.5 mm smaller when it comes to the height and width. It's not much, but should help if the fit is tight. Of course the frame may still need to be modified. -Sale
