  1. EMG Strike Industries ARK-17 by G&P Intro & Background: The EMG Strike Industries ARK-17 by G&P is a gas blowback pistol that has the potential to appeal to the ever-growing Glock fan base. This is a fan base that has emerged, hungry for more accessories and options (than just EF/VFC Glocks), as the Airsoft market had been absent of Glock developments for too long due to license restrictions, previously in placed, by the actual firearm manufacturer. Unlike other companies, EMG has continued their interesting yet rather refreshing approach when it comes to product off
  2. I rather see a dedicated 9mm M4 receiver. Never liked the adapter look
  3. Update: 135% nozzle return spring is noticeably thinner in diameter than the ARK-17's return spring. The nozzle return spring included in the ARK-17 still fits and works better; therefore, I stuck with the oriiginal spring. In fact, the reason for the cylinder nozzle for not returning more easily is that the cooling from the gas seems to cause the o-ring and cylinder to shrink enough to create too much friction. This relies on the hop up ramp to reset the cylinder nozzle instead of the nozzle return spring, itself. There is not many more options left than to possibly change the o-ring pi
  4. Here are my groupings at 15 and 25 feet: I actually had to adjust for more hop up to prevent the loading nozzle from knocking the BB past the hop up nub. As I stated earlier, the nozzle return spring is a bit weak and does not retract the loading nozzle all the way. This required me to adjust my point of aim to the bottom of the target. I will be update my results once my 135% nozzle spring comes in the mail.

  6. Looks like I am unable to edit the review. I am looking into a staff member that can allow me to revise/update my review.
  7. Guarder is the only one that I found readily available. You should be able to find some on HK retailers like Rainbow8 and JK Army

  9. What grip are you using? All the LM4's I have been seeing with real AR pistol grips, have been flushed.
  10. [media=] [/media] Video of Dobey's LM4 shooting out to 150 feet. He shortened his barrel to CQB length in the video.
  11. Yeah I noticed the reports from others have been erratic as well.... Some say they cannot even hit a target at 100 feet, while some say that they have an effective range of 175 feet. What I usually notice with these inconsistencies of the range and accuracy reported on KWAs in general are the users' lack of properly cleaning the grease and dirt out the barrel and hop up. Frankly, it's a given that no airsoft gun performs at its best when its barrel is dirty and its bucking is soaked in grease out of the box. So far myself, I've only had a chance to unload 4 magazines out of the box at 10
  12. Very lucky.... I just picked up my LM4 on Friday. So far, I've only put 13 magazines (520rds) through it. On the up side weather has been pretty good here in Southern California of 70 degrees. I'm getting nearly 3 magazines on auto with one fill, 5 magazines on semi with one fill.
  13. KWA has been looking closely into the jamming/broken feed lip issues that a few of their customers (3 users to be exact) posted up on the KWA technical forums. They found that the issue they experienced was replicated by overloading the magazine 41 rounds instead of 40 rounds. This 41 round does not allow the magazine seat into the LM4 unless it was forced in. Forcing the magazine with 41 rounds is what caused problems of damaging either the feed lip and ram when the bolt was closed. If bolt is open and bolt is released when there is 41 rds, then the bb can be smashed, which the debris can cau
  14. I've had a few buddies of mine use KJW M4's since, at its time, it was the best offering around its price range, especially when its only other competitor was a WE... KJWs performed pretty reliably here in Southern California. I'll see if I can get hands on one of the KJW's as well to compare it side by side with the KWA LM4 and WA M4, once my schedule frees up.
  15. Should I read the article I wrote, again? Apparently you did not read my own article correctly... Pay attention to past tense and present tense. This is middle school grammar. Many of you tell me not to create facts, yet some of you guys are doing the exact same. I'll tone down the Kool-Aid, and come back later.
