    KJW M4

    Hey everyone. For those of you looking to buy A KJW M4 V1 or just want another. I am selling mine with some extra's. Here is the ebay link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=161043658614&ssPageName=ADME:X:AAQ:US:1123

    1. I hear they only work well with low FPS guns that dont have any HOP. I suggest a RA-Tech 6.03 or have Cradle cut you up a custom length one. Both work well, just be sure to get 6.03. I tried the 6.01 and it worked okay with .30's, but I was getting far better accuracy with .25s (6.03 barrel) than the 6.01 could ever do. Reason why is the bb needs about a .05 space in between the barrel so that when its fired the bb wont bounce around the barrel. Either people who sell the barrel will do fine. I used RA-Tech because Cradle didnt have any barrels in stock and it was a little cheaper I think. 2. Look in answer #1, but to state again, get a 6.03 and either RA-Tech or Cradle will do the job well. Not sure about Falcon though, but RA-Tech sells steel barrels and Cradle can cut a custom length for you. Both are equal IMO. 3. With Hop in the KJW M4 V1 and V1.1's the hop wasnt the best but I hear it has improved in the V2. For the config i have on my hope I use the stock Hop with the Cradle TDC mod. The TDC allows for near infinite hop and how they do that is they drill a small hole above your current hop and then you use a grub screw to adjust it which makes use of the reg hop not used anymore from what I hear. Also in a hop from what I hear, you want backspin on your bb that allows you to hit your mark at your desired zeroing (zero/zeroing = adjusting sights/scope/hop/etc so your bbs hit where you aim at the range you choose). A bad hop would have too little backspin regardless of how you adjust it or just barely works in general. As far as replacement HOPs go the RA-Tech one worked really well for me until 7000ish rounds shot later. 4. Your front set (consists of everything from the tip of the barrel to the delta ring) is AEG compatible. You can use RS (real steel/RS = real firearm) parts for AR15s for the front set, buit not all would work and some would require some modification for it to work. If you got the one without the rail they sell rails that you can screw on the bottom where the holes are on your handguard so you have a rail, but anything that can work with an aeg (make sure it will work with a marui) should be able to work with yours. 5. The rail is a 1913 picatiny. Weaver wont work, just get the stuff that will fit on 1913 picatiny (not sure if I spelt that right). As far as optics go I used to use a vortex SPARC, but in all honesty you wont be engaging people far enough or quick enough for the real need of an optic. I suggest you paint your sights and train with them. Seriously, train with the sights and you should be good. The config I have on my sights is that I moved the rear a little more forward (mine doesnt have the carrying handle) I painted the rear sight red so its birght and put white on the top of the front sight so it looks kinda like a white circle or square. Why I did that is because I can see red, but my eyes wont be focused or distracted by it while I can focus on the which yet i still see the red. Instead of the whole aim off the tip and put the tip in the center I place the dot in the center and use that as to where my hits will be. For me its quick and works pretty well. If you do plan on going with optics I HIGHLY HIGHLY suggest Vortex. They have a limited lifetime warranty and are budget to boot. They say that dont loose or get the sight stolen and whatever damage no matter how miniscule they will replace or fix the sight and in airsoft thats a great relief on the budget. 6. Since you have a V2 get the Cradle BCG, the whole bolt with all the add ons and you gun should run ever better. Also for you mags you might want to put some JB weld on the tab that moves up when empty so you have a more reliable LRHO (last round hold open). For fun teaks I found that you can put a RS AR15 trigger spring and it makes the trigger pull harder. From what I know it feels around the 5lbs range, but I have yet to test the true weight. Other than that the 6.03 barrel, TDC Mod (I like it better than the RA-Tech Hop), Cradle BCG, and the JB weld on the mags bolt catch tab and maybe paint the sights and you are good to go as far as internals and some externals go. I hope this helped

    I am not sure if you saw my post but I got a RS AR15 trigger spring to work in my KJW M4 and also I took an old cheapo spring gun spring (not sure where I got it, but I will find out soon) and it fit nicely as the buffer spring. Slower ROF, but I could see using it in a colder enviorment or something. Either way the KJW M4 does have some potential to use RS parts.

    I do not own a RS AR-15, but from memory the RS has the tougher pull. This is because the disconector and hammer spring are still KJW. I didnt put the diconector and hammer spring in because I thought it would interfer with the gas efficency and function of the GBB. It is a difference though from memory I say it feels along the lines of glock pull weight which I hear is around 5.5lbs. Though I dont have the tool to see how the weight on my M4 is.

    Success! A standard AR15 trigger spring will infact work and does increase the trigger pull and what feels like the crispness of the trigger reset. Only issues I can say is that you will need to noodle around with the trigger once installed so the hammer spring can fill the groove to keep the trigger pin in place. Otherwise it works!

    Hey everyone just placed an order for an AR15 trigger spring. I plan on attempting to put one in to see it will not only work, but increase the pull weight on the trigger. Should come within a week and I will let eveyrone know how it goes! I onyl got a trigger spring because if I changed the disconnector I fear that it could cause more resistence for the bolt to completely cock the hammer. Wish me luck!

    Has anyone thought of a mod that allows the same stock trigger pull on an AR15 for the KJW M4, but without altering the fps and such in any way? I know milspec is sort of out of the question, but what about trigger pull? I was thinking it doesnt have to be the hammer spring but something on the trigger to increase the pull weight.

    Shoo, for a minute I thought we lost Raven1, but very terrible news indeed on your friend T_Hum. I look forward to your guys products. Saw the speedloader and only concern is how do we know when our mags are at a safe capacity?

    Wow Hut I never knew. I honestly thought you were a 20 something year old guy who loves airsoft, and has a decent job. Best of wishes on the newborn and current ones sickness. Its never fun when the child is sick or not well, heck we just offered our help to a neighbor who had a car accident and is in a neck brace. Single Mom with 2 kids and a dog, so we are offering her the best of help. I wish you the best on the new job! Not sure what you work or you know, but those who dare win haha. Thats how we went from A crappy area with little air to one of the best areas of SoCal.

    Hey guys I have this outragous suggestion. Okay so we use the top of the mag (that goes into the magwell) make a base for it that had two tubes. We have that running inside a belt that looks like something you see on the Miniguns into a pouch of some kind about the size of the square hydration pouches or some kind of pouch of that size. Either in the pouch there is a device that pushes the bbs into the mag to be fired or something along the belt that feeds bbs (stay with me guys) thats tube 1. Tube 2 will be hooked to a propane tank. So pretty much it looks like a belt similar to a Miniguns that is hooked to a propane tank and had a large reservoir of bbs for a lot of firing. Odd idea, but thought it wouldnt hurt to pitch. I would buy one if one was made.

    For my reloading I cut mine in half. So I get between 30-32 bbs per load. TO keep it together I dremeled the opening on both sides so they expanded a little so coming apart from the 3 reloading parts wasnt a problem. I then made a slit around the rod and put some teflon tape so while it was fully in it wouldnt come out unless I pulled it out, oddly enough being very easy too haha. I will say user error is more apparent this way due to if you forget how many times you have plunged your mag, then over loading could be an issue, yet it does help with reloading a half empty mag since I load 15-16 bbs at a time. It also make plunging a lot easier as well. In short: Cut down the rod and tube to only allow 16 rounds tops. Make a slit(s) on the loading rod so it will stay in the tube unless you pull it out. Use a dremel to expand both sides of the tube along with some teflon tape to secure the tube, cone and loading square thing together tightly, but not perminately.

    true but a QD barrel nut or something of the sort would be amazing.
