    WE Hi Power MkIII

    Anyone notice the g3 mags in the video? Wonder if there's footage of that somewhere from the show?

    "New Wave" Small Rice 7 (MP7) Review

    Trigger pulled and nothing happens. Found out the trigger was moving around on the spacer. Enough that the right side trigger notch didn't engage the trigger bar. Nothing a few aeg shims can't remedy. Anyone else have the same issue?

    WE AK74?

    I feel like they did that long ago. I still have a stock WE ak74u with over 100k rounds through it. Only point of wear is the back of the bolt. I did glue a small piece of sorbo on the hammer though. Either way, if they did add a little extra to it, I think it'll last as long as their AR variants.

    "New Wave" Small Rice 7 (MP7) Review

    I tried putting a thin layer of epoxy on my z parts hammer. The bolt no longer shows signs of new wear on it. I also found that this kept my stock WE 74 hammer from snapping just as well as putting a sorbo on it. So maybe epoxy might turn out to be a cheap easy fix for most WE gbbs.

    WE AKS-74UN First Impressions (Pic heavy)

    My 74u finally hit the 70k mark on stock internals. Seems all that is needed is some small buffer on the hammer like Renegade mentioned a couple years back. I used a sorbo pad on mine and glued an eraser to buffer the bolt. Wear is minimal. I use a pencil and rub graphite on my hammer and sears to smooth out the action instead of lube, and maybe that helped a bit, but it probably didn't.

    WE MP5k "Apache" - Initial Impressions.

    Imagine them making the mags curve towards the shooter.

    WE MP5k "Apache" - Initial Impressions.

    Seems the MP5 is WE's most solid release to date. Only issue reported here was a barrel and bucking change. This should mean whenever they release the G3 it'll be a solid performer as well. WE's come a long way.

    WE AKS-74UN First Impressions (Pic heavy)

    WE is releasing a steel set for the AK platform. Supposedly CNCd. If it's as nice as the MP5 receivers, we have a better replacement as far as specs go hopefully.

    WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

    Doesn't it cost more to get set up with a GHK? Mags for the WE run about 30USD. Significantly cheaper. Along with it is the aftermarket support. Lower cost and longevity.

    Volante-airsoft Merlin Blow Back Unit (BBU) review.

    I've noticed that my efficiency is less with the Merlin than with the stock unit. That and the felt recoil is slightly more than stock.

    Volante-airsoft Merlin Blow Back Unit (BBU) review.

    New routers would be awesome. So far I've had to slowly remove material with a dremel to get mine to work. I bought ten spare routers because I was expecting that I'll need practice to mate them perfectly with the nozzle

    Volante-airsoft Merlin Blow Back Unit (BBU) review.

    Alright. It finally warmed up a bit today. About 50F outside. after a hundred or so shots, everything is functioning better. Still not as great of recoil as I feel my gun should be giving but then again, it's cool outside. Once it heats back up to normal, I'm sure everything will work itself out. I do get the occasional light striking though. Not sure what's causing it though. Overall, as long as you get a TM spec slide that's drop in like prog4 or guns modify, etc. it's perfect.

    Volante-airsoft Merlin Blow Back Unit (BBU) review.

    The router fits with the nozzle tightly but not so tight that the nozzle gets jammed or the slide won't retract. My nozzle does seem to return slowly back into the BBU though. I will try to break it in. That seems like the only reason at this moment. Thanks for the tip Volante.

    Volante-airsoft Merlin Blow Back Unit (BBU) review.

    After fitting, everything seems perfect until firing. I had to shave the router down nearly flush with the feed lip to allow the nozzle to pass through without getting jammed. After that every moves freely, but when I go to shoot, the gun doesn't cycle all the way most of the time. Granted this was at 30F so it was pretty cold. However, my hicapa with an aluminum slide, just like my 1911, functioned perfectly in this whether with a stock TM BBU. I'm boggled as far as a solution right now. Thoughts anyone? I was thinking since the nozzle is larger that it would be able to use more gas to push the slide back, but my results don't match that. What I don't understand is how the stock unit with the stock router works fine in cold weather but the Merlin and its router doesn't. The slide is smooth to rack and the nozzle mates with the router just right. I'm using a cut 150% recoil spring as well, but I think it's not an issue as Wolf is using one as well in his steel frame. Any ideas would be hot guys.

    Volante-airsoft Merlin Blow Back Unit (BBU) review.

    I've just received mine. Doing fitment on it at the moment. Got the black colored one and ended up having to shave all of it off so far because of the guarder kit being so tight. Packaging was excellent. Very pleasing to the eye and though I received no shipping confirmation, it came in in under two weeks, even during lunar New Years. I must say, I'm impressed. I'll update again soon as I fit the BBU in and run some test. Too cold outside at the moment.
