    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    There are no rounds left in the chamber once the magazine is empty. Unlike an aeg, the WE fires all bb's from the magazine and leaves nothing in the chamber.

    Well, since Airsoft Buddy started this thread, maybe it is appropriate to talk about issues with them here.

    We were unable to test FPS and would rather not discuss our method and results in any further detail. That being said I feel the need to set the record straight once and for all. I have sent wraithxt1 a PM asking him to halt the personal attacks and resume the information and idea flow that this forum is for. I had reported earlier on in this thread about our failed experiment, at that time I intentionally left out all details of the experiment so as to not give any ideas to others who may copy what we did. As a long time airsoft enthusiast and former paintball player I know all too well the risks and dangers of pressurized gasses. Precautions were taken in the event of a failure and thus no one got hurt (other than the mag and my wallet). I HAVE NOT AND DO NOT ENDORSE CO2 USE IN ANY PRODUCT OR MACHINE WHICH DOES NOT INDICATE IT IS RATED FOR IT. Experimentation breeds innovation, If WE did not experiment we would not be lucky enough to have these great toys. I do apologize to those of you who are offended by this type of post (normally I am one of you) but felt the need to end this sidetrack once and for all. And now back to our regular programming.

    Excuse me? I'm not trying to be rude here, but were you in the room when we did this? Did you know we used a regulator and pressure gauge and took other precautions. I suggest you get all your facts straight before calling someone an idiot. This was an experiment we did to see what the mag could handle, we knew unregulated CO2 was out of the question, but wanted to stress test the mag. Hope we don't run into one another at PE. PS Just a reminder; I guess you won't want to be near PE anymore since Peter was the one who suggested the experiment .

    Were not as isolated as you would think. We are closer to WE than the mainland as well as the closest port of entry for shipments from Asia which would (and has for me) cut down transit times into the US. There is always USPS flat rate shipping and UPS even offers "ground" to and from HI at a minimal cost. Besides, it was just a thought are an established online retailer with good customer support.

    I beg to differ, I have talked to Dave and Peter and even let them shoot my gun. Both seem interested and would support anything they bring in. I have been shopping at Power Edge for many many years and have never been let down by them not having or being willing and able to get what I need. It was just a thought and would make my life a little easier. In fact, if Peter were to carry the M4 I may be able to finally get back a replacement mag we blew up when we tried to put CO2 in it

    I would like to nominate Power Edge Hawaii (www.poweredgehawaii.com) as a WE parts/service center. They are a large retail storefront with an online retail arm (www.poweredgeusa.com). Plus they are close to where I live

    I can confirm that the Magpul ASAP sling mount fits perfectly on the WE, and is a sweet mount. It is so simple I don't know why anyone else didn't come up with it sooner. Also, the MS2 sling is the best sling I have ever used, all my weapons will be using this sling from now on.

    I understand that AB is a retailer, but he has repeatedly suggested that he has very close ties to WE and the development of your products. If this is incorrect I do apologize for the mistake. Up until now I have had nothing but good things to say about AB and have done several transactions with them. This last transaction simply leads me to believe that the great service we all received early on was simply a ploy to get us hooked. In my current state I am left with a gun in need of parts that I have paid for but have yet to see or hear about. I would simply like a reply from AB in regards to my parts. I will probably hang up my gun until such time as reliable product support can be had once again (if ever).

    Anyone know if William has fallen off the face of the earth? I placed an order almost a month ago and still have not received even an email response. Not good AB and WE.

    If you look on the news page where the packages are advertised it clearly states that the shipping is free with the package. Further, the term "package included:" indicates that all items listed are included in the price. Seems pretty clear to me.

    Look closely at the bottom of the page where it says that shipping is included as part of the package.

    The G&P RAS does fit as this is what I have on my WE M4. The Crane stock should fit but be loose. The WE uses a milspec (1.14") buffer tube, where as most AEG's use the larger commercial (1.17") buffer tube. The only airsoft Crane stock that will fit out of the box would be the stock one used on the PTW which also uses a milspec buffer tube. Other than that you will have to use RS stocks or live with the wobble.

    Airsoftbuddy.com has both the non trade and full trade for the same price, both of which are the original high power (500fps+). I can attest to their great customer service as well.

    Got my free replacement steel bolt catch from AB today. Nice quality part, grey in color unlike the original which is black. It is clearly built from better material. Once installed it worked flawlessly and has had no deflection after about 30 or 40 lock-backs. AB continues to give great customer service.
