    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    Thanks man, much appreciated. Is that the one that is listed in most places as being for WA GBB's?

    I've had a quick look and used the search button, but I can't go through 341 pages to find the answer to this. Does anyone know of a URX style front end that will fit my WE M4? I've had it a fair while now and want to play with the externals as I'm getting bored of the current layout. Thanks guys.

    Wow! Thats kind of worrying on several levels.

    Has anyone else done any fps/power test with varying weights of BB? Having seen many posts stating that FPS/bb weight is only really calculatable for AEG's with their fixed volume cylinders and that strange results can be produced by GBB's due to the nature of a gas system, I've just put some frequently used weights through mine just to see what results I got. All tests were conducted with the SAME magazine. I fired 10 rounds each of 0.2g, 0.25g and 0.3g. The weights were tested in that order. The mag was given one full charge of gas before the tests were started and warmed to room temperature. The mag was not refilled at all over the course of the test, that means that in theory power should have, if anything, dropped over the course of the tests. 10 seconds was allowed between each shot (to record data) at each weight, with 5 minuted allowed between weights to allow the mag temp to normalise at room temp. The highest and lowest result of each test was disgarded to eliminate any chance of an anomoly, and the results were then averages. Results: 0.2g - 405fps, 1.52 Joules 0.25g - 395fps, 1.81 Joules 0.3g - 380fps, ~2.1 Joules Pretty interesting results from the point of view of someone who skirmishes in that, aside from the fact I obviously need to drop the power to use it in the UK, one can effectively make ones gun more powerful simly by increasing bb weight. So my gun could be made to run at 350fps with 0.2's (my site limit) but then by simply switching to 0.3's I can have a gun which is somewhat more powerful than when it is chronoed. Now obviously I will be tuning mine on the 0.3g rounds which I intend to use and then get the fps to the point where the power is less than 1.1 Joules, but there will be many people getting their gun to field limits on 0.2's and then be breaking said limit with their 'field' ammo, most likely completely unintentionally.

    He's paying more than that. It's a $39 part that is costing the equivelant of £60, thats another 50% more than we'd pay if it was $1 in HK = £1 in UK

    What a ripoff! People in the UK moan we have it bad on pricing of guns and parts, but even we don't pay that kind of markup!

    OK, update, I just switched back to the CQB barrel and the problem has gone away, then switched back to M4 length, problem returns. So basically something between the barrel and #117 is incompatible. What suggestions do people have? New Barrel? New #117? New brass housing? New Hop? For some reason it just won't fire with the M4 length barrel, it loads the bb into 117 but the round then jams and won't leave the barrel. On a side note, here is how she looks at the moment

    What would the fix be? Dremel it or get a new one?

    I have been working my way through this thread but I'm only up to page 150 so far so excuse me if this has been covered in depth. I have an issue with my M4 (WETTI-AFC Ver.2). The BB's are getting jammed in part #117. They load fine (no smasshing/deformation etc) but once in 117 get stuck. The nozzle and all internals are fine. Is the cure for this just as simple as dremelling down 117 slightly so the bb's down get stuck or am I better off buying a new 117? It is confusing me massively as the gun was fine in CQB configuration, firing perfectly, but then I took it apart and fitted the M4 length inner barrel and now every round jams in 117. I've tried greasing it to lube it, cleaning it to remove anything that could be sticking to the bb, rotating it to see if the rubber had varying thicknesses, nothing works. Please help. Thanks guys P.S. I god damn adore this gun. I've put about 1000 rnds through it so far without any problems (bar the one I've just caused by fiddling LOL). Massive kick, great power, superb noise. I can't wait for WE to bring out more guns so I can keep my GBB thirst quenched
  11. Good comms, fast payment, great buyer, would recommend :)

    Thanks for the subjective view of both, makes me glad I picked the WE now Don't worry about the english

    They don't buy whole guns, just the parts need to make their bits complete guns, like the internals. They don't bother with bodies etc as that would all just get binned. I've got 2 WE M4's on their way to me (one detined for SPR'ishness ), so before they get modded we'll see what their quality control is like when I compare two 'identical' guns side by side for accuracy and performance

    Can I just point out that they are not G&P clones of a WA, they are WA M4's with G&P parts fitted. There are still only two makes available, WE and WA. The WE is obviously WE, but the G&P, Inokatsu and G&P are all WA
