    WE/Cybergun M1A1 Thompson Submachine Gun

    The rationale behind that is to decrease gas consumption in the blowback cycle. There are two springs which control the amount of gas which result in net rearward movement of the bolt carrier; the main recoil spring, and the nozzle return spring. A quicker rearward movement is a result of lightening of the mail recoils spring and the nozzle return spring. That will result in less effort and gas used to push the bolt carrier rearwards, shutting the gas release valve sooner, using less gas without changing the rate of gas flow in the system. But of course, as an open bolt system, the main recoil spring determines the striker force on the gas release valve, which will affect initial gas release impulse and will affect FPS if trimmed too much. Over lightening of main recoil spring may also result in cycling and reliability issue. Recoil will definitely be harder, and will affect the structure and buffering at the back of the receiver. So it is all a balance.

    WE/Cybergun M1A1 Thompson Submachine Gun

    Yes I did, ROF is lower. When you do it however, you gotta remember that on an open bolt, the impact force releases gas. So if you lighten that too much FPS will be affected. Funny you say that, pretty much Most WEs I would have to do the same sort of fixes to them anyways. It actually makes the WEs more flexible. For example because I need to do that tuning, I can max out gas efficiency, recoil, reliability, and power output where I would have trouble with say a GHK or a Marui. For cheaper, a WE get better performance overall.

    WE/Cybergun M1A1 Thompson Submachine Gun

    Great review! I bought mine recently, and its a fun gun. Shoots at 320-330fps at 27*C, which is bit low for my liking. However gas efficiency is very poor, I get 60 round/cycles out of a full charge. I proceeded to trim the main spring by 30% and stretched + trimmed the nozzle return spring by 40%, got around 80 rounds/cycles per charge, with a noticeable increase in kick. I found that the flute valve was being slammed forward during the cycle and hence resulting in low FPS, using an older and stronger WE flute valve spring to keep the flute valve in place , which increased the FPS. Its now shooting at 430-440fps. Due to the same issues around the hop rubber constriction it is causing a dispersion. The wobbly and misaligned barrel is also causing a number of accuracy issues. So I proceeded to shim the barrel, which brought the rifle back to the correct point of aim. I will be working on the hop rubber later today to get better accuracy. All in all, it does need a heavier barrel and a wood kit, which I will purchase at a later date.

    WE Hi Power MkIII

    Marui's lack of international strategy lost out to WE's strategy a lot time ago. Japanese as a culture are far more conservative than the Chinese, and it translates to their business Acumen. Still, good news around the WE Browning MK3 even though I just bought a GP1935, I will probably pick up the Mk3 at a later date. I have been fitting old AWSS hop ups into the Browning and the Lugers as they don't have hops at all.

    WE AKS-74UN First Impressions (Pic heavy)

    Above is a WE AK PMC, Below is the WELL Uses the traditional AK47 front sight, gas block and furniture. I added the AK47 thread protector (removed the AK74 muzzle break) Side by side comparison Note rear sight block and gas tube, reminiscent of marui AKs. Note triggers, the white putty is reinforcement added by me to strengthen the trigger box. Note the rectangular cut, similar to AEG receiver, but not quite. The pistol grip covers up the hole quite nicely.

    WELL AK74...Now AKM

    WELL G74D with faux wood, now an AKM. Compared to WE AK PMC with RA-tech wood kit

    Anyone noticed they are selling everything at discount, and their website has very few products?

    WE AKS-74UN First Impressions (Pic heavy)

    Finally bought a WELL G74D (AK74M), out of curiosity, and in my country its not a regular import. Overall, its not bad. Thought it was gonna be pretty bad, turns out it came with a few good surprises. Following from the previous reviews listed here on the WELL G74A (AKS74U). Picking it up: - It has creaky plastic imitation wood, the whole front section wobbles like a flag pole in the wind. Its a flat black painted, with an aluminium barrel that has been surprisingly well made that has the early heat dissipating threads. - It has a Steel based AEG receiver and barrel trunnion from a CYMA/JG AK. The receiver has a rectangular cut for a motor cage, but it hasn't been cut all the way. However the WELL pistol grip covers the rectangular cut. (More on this later) - Front sight is of a CYMA design - It has a Marui gas tube/ rear sight block, and a marui based stock trunion, with the creaky imitation wood. It can take only take wood kits that fit the original Marui systems. - It had trouble fitting WE AK47 mags without mods. - It was full of grease, which was everywhere. Basically out of the box the barrel was so dirty it was impossible to get consistent accuracy. Spent hours degreasing it afterwards. - The inner barrel is of a VSR cut, but fitted for the WE hop unit. After degreasing the rifle is relatively accurate. - It chronos at around 340-360fps with a 17" inner barrel with a WE AK47 mag @ 18*C, (the gun came with a CO2 Mag). Blowback is similar to a WE, except its slower. - The blowback unit is a low output power unit compared with the WE. That can be easily remedied. After some modifications the blowback unit is now outputting 460fps @ 18*C. - The blowback unit O-ring is not undersized as some reviews have been suggesting. It is actually oversized, no further work is required. - The trigger unit is a replica of the WE, except it looks more heavy duty. - The hammer, semi-auto sear and gas release striker is steel, everything else is zamak. Quite a nice surprise there. However the area on the hammer which engages the auto-sear has a really shallow cut and leads to partial engagement of the auto-sear. This leads to light striking on full auto. Basically, after a few hours of work, by: ' - Degreasing everything - Chopping the inner barrel down to 16", added an AK47 thread nut - Modifying the trigger box to fit AK47 mags - Modifying the height which the mags engaged to the blowback unit, in order to get better gas route seal - Shimming the outer barrel to barrel trunnion - Chopping the recoil spring - Cutting a deeper engagement area on the hammer for the auto-sear. - Reinforcing the trigger box - Chopping the flute valve spring to release less gas. Now I have an AKM at 460fps with stuff all cooldown. More pictures to follow. Now, since it uses standard AEG style receiver cuts, has anyone considered using a WELL to converted a JG/CYMA RPK to a GBB?

    "New Wave" Small Rice 7 (MP7) Review

    Old WE GBBRs such as the MP5/MP7 had overly strong rocket valve springs and recoil springs. Rocket valve springs can be chopped by 1.5 rungs while recoil springs can be chopped between 30-40%. That will increase the efficiency. And no its not the #049 that eats away at the bolt, it is the hammer.

    "New Wave" Small Rice 7 (MP7) Review

    Since I went to a steel hammer/trigger sear set there has been no wear. http://shop.kic.tw/portal_c1_cnt_page.php?owner_num=c1_33589&button_num=c1&folder_id=7632&cnt_id=88590&search_field=all_field&search_word=smg8&search_field2=&search_word2=&search_field3=&search_word3=&bool1=&bool2=&search_type=1&up_page=1 But the hammer, will then wear out the bolt carrier due to a few design issues. Long story short, WE's hammer design, when replicated with steel, will wear the valve release areas on the bolt carrier. The biggest issue isn't that. It is over time, the pin that holds the striker in place will bend from impact, leading to a decrease in FPS and irratic full auto. To solve this you need to temper the pin, and then modify the mechbox so that striker assembly stops not by where the pins stop, but at the front of the striker area. So far, no other issues have popped up.
