    PTW clones( DTW A&K etc)

    The full Etiny kit is worth every penny, to be honest. Basically the same components as the FCC electronics kit, but at a fraction of the cost. Thats actually the only thing I would not buy from FCC. I can also fit a lipo in the stocktube now with no problem.

    You will find that the FCC motor is not compatible with the normal A&K electronics. At least in my case it wasnt. The programming does not work well with the increased power of the FCC motor. If you swap your motor, throw a complete Etiny kit in there

    The person in that video is me actually. I was not breaking the rules really. The only thing that was questionable is my buddy that basically told me where the guy that hit him stood. The referees really do say at the beginning of each game day "There is no shot rule" unless you stare down someones barrel from a meter away. The guy who used the shot rule on my teammate was 5 meters away, the guy that I said "bang/shot" to was a meter away and I knew he was there. If my KWA USP was working that day I would have used it, but it was below 5 Degrees Celsius. Wasnt breaking the rules at all in the video, I just was not playing fair because normally I would go back to the spawn if someone hits me more or less at the same time, in this instance like half a second later, but since out of 40 opponents more than half did not call their hits at all or only after a few followup shots I did not see any harm done. In my entire airsoft career I have never ignored a clear hit. So dont be so quick to judge when you dont know all the facts. Plus, the video is only to serve as a demonstration on how the A&K PTW performs completely upgraded

    If anyone wants to see a completely upgraded A&K PTW in action, watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f7C5D4RgTyM
  5. Hey guys, just wanted to start a separate thread for my video-review of the Magpul PTS PDR-C. Its rather comprehensive and should cover all of the pros and cons of this unique bullpup. Watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSzzf-fYb40 Best regards, Alex

    To my knowledge, all of them should have them. That is: sniper-as.de, begadi.de and softairstore.de I ordered mine from softairstore.de Then again, the price difference between a shop in Poland, such as taiwangun.com, who stocks the old version, is 42 Euros. 378 Euros vs. 420 Euros. If you plan on swapping out the inner barrel, hop up, the ECU and mosfet, etc. I think I would go for the old version at 378 Euros. However, if you like to keep it the way it is for now then the new version is a better deal. Externals just look a tad bit nicer and smoother. That alone to me is worth it.

    For the most part, yes. In Germany some stores seem to have gotten a "new" improved version of the A&K PTW though. They slightly improved the motor, the mosfet has a better heatsink, the hop up is better, the MAG is slightly improved, the cylinder has supposedly also undergone minor improvements. I actually have one of those PTWs and also had an older Austrian model. While I dont think the motor has really been improved, the other stuff is definitely true. I also thought that the body looked a bit better. Finish was smoother. So if you feel comfortable ordering a semi-version from Germany, I would go for those because I am not sure if other regions already received the "improved" version.

    Yeah, a PTW system is always superior to a normal AEG. You can swap out your cylinders to adjust for different circumstances, CQB or woodgame. You have a smart trigger that lets you trigger extremly fast. There are no gearjams at all, no matter what you do. The Hop-Up will deliver much more consistent and accurate shots down range due to its solid and great design. If I were you, I would get an A&K PTW. Swap out the inner barrel and Hop Up for an ORGA Widebore, FCC HU and the ORGA Flathop Adjuster. Also downgrade the spring to an FCC M100-115, polish the standard cylinder inside to get a smooth and even surface, change out the o-ring on the piston head for a Systema, apply some teflon tape on the cylinderhead for better airseal. You will get ranges of 70 Metres+ combined with extreme accuracy and a really nice trigger response if you downgrade to the M100 spring even with the stock motor. You do not have to upgrade anything else if you receive a reasonable gun that made it through quality control properly. If something else fails, such as the motor or the electronics(Mosfet, ECU) upgrade to FCC or Etiny parts as you go. Best thing is that you learn a lot about your system on the go.
  9. Hey guys, just got done recording another video-review for you. This time its about the VFC H&K HK416 AEG version. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O4l4uCcHRYY Enjoy it! Best regards

    Here is a short review of mine about the KWA KRISS Vector for all the potential buyers out there: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nM8nqLjVC4w
  11. To make everything complete I also did a video guide on how to upgrade the Gearbox of the WE Katana with Siegetek gears and the ASCU. Check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COnv28SOxdY

    If I was you I would just change out the entire electronics. If you mix components of various manufacturers you always run into some problems along the way. While it may work at first, the reliability of your gun wont be as good. In general, most manufacturers use the same components on the ECU and mosfet though. Its just the programming that will be different. My A&K electronics for instance could not handle the speed and power of my FCC motor, so I encountered some malfunctions such as bursts on fast semi-triggering. The entire etiny electronics kit on powair6.com is incredibly cheap. Just save yourself the trouble and buy the whole thing. Its not always wise to save a few bucks.

    One a german forum a guy actually said that the FCC pinion gear stripped the bevel gear of the A&K gearbox partially, so I would not count my money on that combination to work reliably.

    If you do have an M150 cylinder I am inclined to think that you either have a Gen.1 A&K PTW or maybe there is more market differences. Overhere the Gen.1 also had the M150 cylinder as standard. Well, see the excessive grease can eventually cause problems. If any of that ###### gets onto the outside of your sector gear and covers the indicator holes your ECU sensor will not be able to detect full cycles as reliably anymore. You will get random bursts then. So its always good to clean the gearbox. I personally do not see why you guys overthere would get a different gearbox though, especially if you really have a Gen.1. So I think you may end up with the same proprietary pinion gear as the rest of us in Europe.

    Also, as for the BB chopping issue, I have some extra points that you may find interesting. Check if your outer barrel sits in the upper receiver correctly. Also remove the outer barrel completely and insert the inner barrel with the Hop Up unit into it. Do the nobs of the Hop Up unit fit into the gaps properly without any play? If they dont, use some tape to fill the gaps. Check if the shimming of your buffertube endcap is correct. Shoot the gun without the magazin and check if the cylinder has any play. If it moves slightly, add more shims to the endcap. If you dont have any, screw the buffertube in one more turn and remove existing shims accordingly. You should also still be able to separate the upper from the lower by just using your thumb with a little bit of force. Moreover, also check the nozzle as you look down the mag well. Does it move correctly? Is it too short or maybe even too long? Check the nozzle for damage. Even a slightly damaged nozzle can chop BBs. Also open up your cylinder and clean all the BB fragments out of it, so your pistonhead and nozzle can move freely. Another issue can, of course, be the magazines. Most magazines, including Systemas, are not meant for BBs weighing more than 0,25. If you own A&K Mags with the two seperate springs, purchase the MAG "strong type" main magazine spring kit. This will most likely resolve your problem. Also check if the little retention holders of the magazine and the little springs below them are still intact. If they are damaged, replace them. You may also check the magazine lips for excessive wear. If one of them is damaged, your hop up is not positioned correctly. If you need to move your hop up back a bit, put one small oring on the inner barrel right in front of the hop up and stick it back into the outer, also make sure to remove a shim from the endcap accordingly. Last thing I can think of is in general BBs. The only brand that I trust my PTW with is G&G 0,28 Bios, they are amazing. All other brands such as Elite Force, Bioval, King Arms, etc. only made chopping a lot worse. Hope I could help
