    KJW M4

    Has anyone gotten a hold of KJW for spare parts lately? Is the correct email address still kjworks@ms47.hinet.net? I know this question gets asked every so often, but I didn't see a recent inquiry regarding this issue and want to make sure my info is current. Thanks.

    Awesome, thanks! Good thing I didn't start wacking away at it. I should have figured that it would be something easy like that! Everything else on the platform is very user-friendly.

    Does anyone know the correct procedure for a complete magazine take-down? I am getting a leak from the front side of the magazine, in the BB tube (along where part M9 goes). I believe it is a poorly seated o-ring between the magazine body sections. Looking at the manual, the exploded view doesn't show any pins, so my assumption is that it is a friction-based sliding fit of sorts; correct me if I'm wrong but my guess is that a bit of rubber mallet work should separate the pieces. Can anyone offer some insight as to the dis-assembly? Thanks.

    You should give it another shot. I just recently ordered a couple of rubber bands and replacement magazine follower springs from Clare. In what seems to be an unusual occurrence, my initial request for an invoice only took about two days to get a reply to. At this point, I'm only concerned about KJW's refusal to ship receivers to the U.S. Even magazines will become available from time to time; I bought three from Airsplat a week or two ago, after waiting for them to restock.

    That's interesting - the CQB-R is a newer rifle, but it was paired with an older magazine? Was the magazine revision done before the CQB-R came out? Anyway, I'm glad to hear that it's something that simple! Thanks a lot.

    Hello folks, I just received my new CQB-R in the mail today. I'm quite impressed with it overall - shoots great, feels great, sounds great... it is great. Except for the bolt lock feature. When I run out of BBs, the bolt lock is very temperamental about working - sometimes it does, and sometimes it doesn't. I agonized over the cause of this, and have ultimately determined that the magazine is sitting too low in the rifle. If I push up on the magazine and dry-fire, the bolt locks back 100% of the time. So in summary, the bolt lock isn't engaged by the magazine's actuator because the magazine is too low. Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, does anyone know a good fix for it? Thanks.

    You've got a PM!

    That certainly wasn't my intent; I was just thinking of a scenario and inquired, directly, as to its plausibility. My post was supposed to be less speculation and more an honest question - though I understand your concern. Thankfully, the idea seems to have been disproved based on the recent restock at eHobby.

    I made the leap of faith last week and decided to get a KJW M4 CQB-R via Airsoft Advantage's WGC Shop Special Order. Here's hoping that customs doesn't nab it! After doing some research and experiencing the suckage that is the WE SCAR, I went for the KJW platform. Based on everything I've read here, it sounds like it was the right choice. I have a few issues though: Where are the mags? It seems like every major retailer I know of has them out of stock. Was production cut at the source? I'm a bit anxious because I have no idea if KJW is going to make more of them - does anyone have any insight as to when we can expect to see them replenished at stores? A shame it would be if I end up with the one stock-skirmishable GBBR on the market, only to have just one mag! Given the situation with the magazines, I am also worried I won't be able to get spare parts. I understand that some of you have gone through Clare at KJW to get stuff like hop-up buckings and spare rubber bands; these things are essential consumables to keep spares of. Can anyone confirm that KJW is still taking orders for spare parts through Clare's email address? (I ask only because I haven't tried yet.) Thanks for your help.
