    By foregrip, do you mean the handguards? Also, how does the stock fit? Loose? Tight? Just wondering if they went with a true milspec'd buffer tube size.

    Why are you posting pictures of your airsoft GBBR on AR15.com?

    Honestly I don't think it's really worth the trouble (or money) just to have trades, that's my opinion. If you choose to do so I can give you a quick rundown of the basic steps required. First remove or loosen the pistol grip screw to relieve the tension placed on the fire selector (you can remove the grip but make sure you don't lose the spring or detent) , next carefully pull out the selector by rotating it side to side (you may need to hold the sear back). After removing the selector, using a screwdriver remove the brass screw that holds the trigger pack inside the lower receiver. Then using a pin punch, remove the pin closest to the magazine release button. After that, the trigger pack should be free and can be lifted out from the lower receiver as a single unit. When pulling the trigger pack out, hold it upright making sure you don't tilt it, as the pin that holds the sear in place is loose and will slide out causing the sear and spring to come out of the pack. Also, watch out for part #66 and the spring that holds it in place, both are located on the side of the trigger pack, they tend to jump out sometimes. Once you separate the trigger pack from the lower receiver, there is no need to disassemble it any further. Transferring the bolt catch, magazine release assembly, trigger guard, and front pivot pin is fairly simple. When transferring your buffer tube assembly, you will also be able to remove the rear take down pin. The last thing to transfer would be your buffer retainer pin and spring. Having the right tools makes a world of difference. Good luck.

    I take it you're using the stock WE trigger? If so, that's your problem. The steel parts are eating away at the WE trigger's contact point (with the sear/disconnector). Continued use will result in full wear and non-stop full auto when set on semi. Best advise would be to also replace the trigger with the TSC one (######), or go back to the original WE stock parts (also ######). I had the same problem as you and just went back to WE stock parts, now it's just a matter of time before they also wear out...

    Has anyone noticed that the WE website is gone?

    You're absolutely right, it's rare to communicate directly with other manufacturers, but you know why? Because they have thousands of aftermarket part replacements readily available for their systems, and those users don't need to beg for a pot metal trigger or something as simple as a missing spring or screw. I do hear that European shops are more consistent in keeping their parts in stock and carrying hard to find replacements. But why not here in the US? The problem then is clear. WE needs to drop their current US based dealers and find a retailer that will frequently stock spare parts and improve their overall image. Airsoft Outlet NW is a joke, they carry a small handful of parts and they're completely out of stock. Evike? these guys won't order special parts even if their website mentions this: "Lots of Optional Accessories and 100% Factory Part Support Provided by Evike.com Inc. Another Reason To Buy Yourself A WE MK16 ASC Today!" A bunch of BS. If their M14's trigger group or any critical operation part is made of pot metal, it will be no different that the M4 series.

    Seeing as how WE is focusing on the M14 now, does this mean that all support for current M4/SCAR/416/PDW owners will cease? WE will not answer any emails regarding this, so it seems likely that we will never see those critical parts we need to fix our broken guns. Just about all of WE's official retailers have been out of stock on spare WE parts for several months now, which leads me to believe that WE has stopped shipping parts to it's dealers and plans on "moving on" to their new gas system. Has anyone here had any luck contacting WE lately?

    Where did you get this information? And who is making these?

    WE SCAR Review

    Both the MOE and MIAD fit the WE SCAR, with no modification.

    There have been numerous reports of broken threads on the upper receiver, broken trigger guard ears as well as receiving factory broken uppers and lowers. Good luck trying to replace them. Co2 might be the culprit behind the trigger set degradation, but aren't the newest WE GBBR's marketed as "Co2 versions"??? It makes no sense ordering a "Co2 version" if you can only use Green gas.

    This doesn't apply to WE. The problem here are the trigger parts, no matter how much you tinker or work on them you cannot fix the auto/burst fire problem. Eventually you will end up replacing these parts every 2 months or so. Everything else is "fixable", with time and money. Also, one thing to mention, if your receivers, outer barrels or any other build parts should break you'll be out of luck trying to find a replacement. KJW will sell you these parts for their platform, and WA/WOC has many aftermarket replacements available as well. That's another problem that's never been mentioned.

    Just wait. A couple more months and many new manufacturers will be releasing their own GBBR's. KWA has the most potential to be the best GBBR platform in terms of performance. I wouldn't hold my breath for WE. They haven't fixed the problems 3vi1-D4n mentioned since their M4 V1 release and most likely never will.

    Try moving the fire selector to "semi" or "safe" before closing the rifle. Usually if it's set on "auto" the receivers wont close completely.

    I have both TSC and RA-TECH. I would not purchase TSC, their quality is questionable and whether it will fit without problems is another story. RA-TECH's parts are a direct drop in and require zero modification. The beefy firing pin strikes the outer casing of the magazine, and causes cycling problems, and damaging the casing when this happens.
