    KJW M4 with Cradle parts = WIN I used to have the WE M4A1. And I've never looked back after switching to KJW. KJW hasn't got the most powerful blowback, but everything mentioned above is true. KJW M4 is hands down the best GBB rifle out of the box, and after Cradle upgrades even better. I've actually had a lot more problems with my AEG's, than with my KJW (none yet). Currently I don't even own a single AEG.

    Wow! A very decent price even if it goes a bit higher. Could you consider also the new Magpul EMAG's? As me and my teammates got the L119A1 conversions, the EMAG's would be perfect for us, as British units have just ordered EMAG's for their troops using L119A1.

    Wow... Just noticed the picture of the PMAG. Awesome! Great work t_hum! (As usual!) Gonna buy at least six of those once they're available.

    Kai_Wolf: Good to hear you got the hop working. Personally, I've actually never had an AEG that could have shot more straight than my current KJ setup (after installing TB and the hop mod). Also can't think why it couldn't be a permanent fix, as it's easy to do and lasts just about forever. No need for custom parts for me.

    That is great news! Even 20rnd mags, which is good. Now only if I could get a VN-era upper... Mine was most likely 4,8mm diameter. I used two layers, which we're just perfect ,although the second layer was a bit tough fit.

    Heh... I'm not using my gun for a while. There's a feet of snow out there and the temperature has dropped to zero degrees Fahrenheit. That's -18 degrees Celcius. I'm curious how low have you guys been able to go with propane. I'm actually considering some sort of an air rig I could attach to one magazine. That could enable me to use the gun through most of the winter.

    Definitely interested.

    I can also highly recommend t_hum's (Cradle) parts. They're all you'll need. I've got the velocity reducer, carrier extension, o-ring piston and the modified madbull tightbore in mine. I've also made the shrink wrap mod for the hopup and the gun works like a champ.

    The mag development sounds REALLY promising! Can't wait to get some pmags...

    Haven't really seen an actual tutorial, but here's a link to the post where you can see what it should look like, with one or two electrical shrink wrap tube pieces around the hop arm (I also used two layers which seems to be spot on, but it depends on the thickness of the tube you're using). Disassembly of the hopup arm unit in receiver is pretty easy, after you remove the bolt, outerbarrel and innerbarrel. There's one small screw in front of the receiver and one bigger within the dialup ring. After those it comes apart. Just be careful with the small spring that's under the dialup ring and hopup arm, and take note what parts are where. It's a pretty simple design, so you shouldn't have any worries taking it apart. I think that's the most essential upgrade you need to make KJW accurate. TB also helps. I've got both and it shoots more accurate than any other AEG/GBB I've ever had. With the mod I made and the velocity reducer (now around 340-350fps with G&G 0.28g BioBB's), the hopup sets the trajectory flat in the middle dialup settings. Shoots like a laser now.

    Personally I prefer regular gas mags for their ease of use. Yes, I think CO2 mags are pain in the *albatross*. I just hate screwing the endcaps, replenishing a new capsule and then screwing the cap back on. So much easier just to to top up the mags with GG when I reload, and after that in the game I don't have to worry if there's enough gas in the capsule left. If there's bb's, theres gas too (thanks to the reliable KJ mags). I carry enough mags (six of them) with me, plus a pistol with a couple of mags. So it has to be a really long game when that's not enough.

    Yes. It is possible... ...but you'd propably have to dump a LOT of money before that, upgrading all the crappy WE internals (steel hammer etc), especially if you plan to use the WE CO2 magazines and be prepared to do a lot of modifications yourself. With KJ you can just take it out of the box and blast away. Only a couple of parts, pretty low price and easy to install, are recommended if you want a long life for your rifle. I personally switched from WE to KJ just because I was fed up with WE's leaking mags and poor accuracy. My current KJ in it's L119A1 setup with t_hum's madbull tightbore and the shrink-wrap hopup fix it's now the most accurate airsoft gun I've ever had (including all the AEG's I've had). It's not only fun as hell, but it's also pretty efficient gun in the field.

    About the shrink wrap hopup fix; I used two layers of tubing that I had, which helped my hopup have flatline trajectories around in the middle hopup settings. The gun is the new CQB model with long t_hum's madbull barrel, 0.28g BB's and around 2 joules power with green gas in 20+ celcius temperature. The two last settings now overhop, so now I have adjustment range both up and down. Of course there's different thickness tubings available, so you just have to test and experiment.

    It seems that the KJ rifles and their magazines are selling like hot cakes, which isn't really a surprise given how ridiculously awesome these guns are, compared to any of the competition. Last week the magazines came back in stock in eHobbyAsia (and I ordered 4 more), and only after a week they are sold out. Same thing I've seen in every other store. It seems that the shops are not getting enough of them to meet the demand. So you need to be fast when you see them in stock somewhere. About the KJ spare parts: I just recently ordered some parts from Clare (rubber bands, hopup rubbers and bolt stops), and last week I received the package. So they still sell them. But be patient, it might take few days before Clare answers your parts quote. PS. I think the really weird thing is that none of the shops have ordered larger amounts of spares and started selling them. There should be a demand for this kind of service. This KJ approach through Clare is a bit "complicated" and no-one not following this thread would even know about it...

    Just played couple of games with my KJ L119A1. Lovely weather, warm and the gun worked like a charm. It was highly efficient with awesome accuracy and range. Dropped three AEG players in a row with a single magazine. And the sound of the gun is pretty loud, almost got my ears ringing with my first shots. Even if the recoil ain't as high as with WE, I'd say my choice to switch to KJ has been more than a success.
