    WE M&P

    The flow valve on the actual magazine. I thought the valve wasn't opening due to weak hammer spring or too much pressure inside the magazine. Turns out the o ring was deformed and not allowing the valve to open freely when struck.

    WE M&P

    First time I fielded the gun i could not get it to work. It seemed like i was getting light strikes, as i was using propane and it was fairly hot. I emptied gas on mag, filled with a small amount of green gas and had the same issue. I removed the flow valve and noticed one of the o rings was completely mangled, it was almost flat like a washer. If you stand up the valve vertical with the impact portion facing up, the oring on the bottom was the bad one (the one that seals the valve). Removed and replaced with one at local hardware store and it was up and running in no time. JUST FYI if you seem to be getting light strikes check your flow valve before tinkering with the hammer spring.

    RS glock magpul speed plates do fit with modification.

    Thanks. I tend not to use it so much since it can really reach out there and touch someone. A little too unfair =p

    WE M&P

    It seems like they've addressed some QC issues since i was able to adjust my hop up wheel with no problems. I have to admit i was not a big fan of WE before, but after handling some of their newer models i'm impressed. I've had my share of pistols, TMs, KJWs, KSC, and KWAs, but for 95 bucks i thought it was a good buy.

    WE M&P

    I just got mine last week. It definitely looks and feels good. The action is nice and snappy and is one of my favorite pistols to shoot. Accuracy is horrible even at 5M. I tested it with stock bucking, barrel, propane, and bioshot .30g and got 2" (5cm) groupings. Chrono gave me fairly steady 315 fps with .20g. The hop up wheel worked fine. I'm going to test to see if it works with the nineball gas route seals for a 226. And maybe throw in a nineball bucking or a maple leaf, as i haven't decided yet. The barrel definately needs replacing. The lack of aftermarket parts isn't a big con for me, as i know i can get replacement parts from WE here in the states. Another huge positive is the ability to attach actual magpul speed plates, takes a bit of moding but they fit. All in all a great pistol, only time will tell if there are any durability issues. I purchased mine at ASGI for only $95. I'm not disappointed with my purchase at that price. I know the VFC one is coming out but if i can get work done with the WE I rather spend the money on something else. Heres a picture of the new WE M&P added to the family.

    I just got my v1+ bolt. I haven't installed it yet but i noticed the hole in that the charging handle pole goes through is not alligned. IE the top portion of the piston cup and the back part of the bolt do not properly allign. What is the best way to reallign them? Seems like the piston is not centered. . 1)Loosen piston screw, asseble bolt competely. Tighten the piston screw. 2)Leave it alone because thats the way it came from t-hum

    Thum will stanag mags be compatible with ranger plates?

    In addition to those mag conversions maybe draft up some better gas route seals? I know there are a lot of gimmicks out there for airsoft that don't do anything but i swear by these in my pistols. I've tested multi mags in different conditions and have always had better results with these. I'd be cool to have a drop in addition included in the conversion kits. http://shop.ehobbyasia.com/nine-ball-gas-route-sealing-rubber-packing-for-marui-hi-capa-p226-gbb-2pcs.html

    Its slow at work today so here's another question. Has anyone done any tests regarding fps consistancy and barrel length? I know with any gas gun longer barrel = higher fps (to a certain extent). As there is more volume for the gas to expand the higher the fps. If there is a longer barrel, and gas expansion is effected by temperature. Wouldn't a longer barrel lead to more fps variance as there is as the bb is essentially subjected to the variable gas expansion longer? IE simply put: FPS = Gas Expansion * Duration (length of barrel) Wouldn't decreasing duration the bb is subject to the variable (barrel length of 363mm to 300mm) decrease the effect of temperature variable thus giving more consistent fps? Or does all that happen so fast that its negligible? Maybe someone with two different length inners can run some tests. Obviously the fps range will differ but perhapts we could see if there is more consistancy vs barrel length in gbbs? I don't know once again just a thought i had. Maybe thats why Tanio Koba designed the inner barrel so short =p. Hopefully someone can enlighten me since I don't have a science background.

    +1 for mag conversion kits with higher bb count. I think even 40 would be a blessing. Another idea regarding reloading mags. I'm still using the tube and plunger technique, I know if you enlarge the hole to the magazine cap you can just use a speed loader directly into it. I've tried it and actually ended up cracking the cap as the hole was weakened due to the removed material. How about something similar to the cap they have now but just with a bigger reinforced hole to allow use with speed loader without modification?

    7 mags personally. Conversion would be nice =). On another note, i've had my KJW for 2 years and used exclusively for first year. I now switch out with aeg's depending on scenario. Since the LM4 has come out i've seen a lot more interest among my friends about purchasing a GBBR. Two of my friends opted getting a LM4 just because they couldn't find a KJW m4s anywhere stateside. Every thing i read online and all the people i talk to understand KJW is reliable and it is a proven platform. I think more people would run them if they were readily available. There was also a rumor that KJW's are now on the ATF list and no longer being sold in the US, which i don't remember where i read it but i don't believe it. Can anyone chime in?

    Didn't thum show some pics of a prototype pmag where he was able to just use standard pmag shells? Its not the ugly magazines that i hate. They are the most durable gas mags i've seen on the market, still have my original 7 mags for 2+ years with no issues. I hate the compatability with pouches =(
