    WE TA 2015, P90 review

    P90, WE90, Play 90, TA2015, the gun with too many names. The gun so many people around the world have been waiting half a decade for is finally out! Up until recently there had been no new information regarding it and the project had been barred from production by Cybergun, but WE surprised us and released it anyways. Who knows what else in in the works, the AUGustus Caesar ^^^^hehe may very well still be somewhere. 76 picture album here! I got mine from Airsoft Taiwan since they were the only place to have enough mags in stock when I ordered it. I placed my order on the 20th of October and received it on the 26th of October, all the way from Taiwan. It made it into the states and through customs in 6 days. Very pleased with the speed. Airsoft Taiwan even notified me of an error in the listed weight for the magazines, leading to additional shipping costs and refunded me $75. All around wonderful service, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Airsoft Taiwan, especially if you're looking for RA-tech parts. Video will be up soon! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Packaging: Packaging is the usual odd WE packaging. There is an image of the P90 over an urban city background. You've got some Chinese writing, a funky font for the T.A-2015 logo and the two WE logos. I can't read Chinese, though my quick doodles through Google translate trying to replicate their difficult to read stylized font gave me "????, ????", "King of the road again, Die Another Day". No clue what that means, I could have also possibly gotten one of the symbols wrong. The package is actually really small compared to what I pictured, I put my hand on it for scale. Inside the package you get the WE TA 2015, one magazine, the manual and one of their new Dragon notadildo speed loaders. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Gun: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Externals: Externally, the gun is damn fine. WE's polymer has always been very sturdy and very comfortable in the hand. No creaking or wobbling aside from the charging rod/handle thing. My Tokyo Marui High Cycle feels a little toy-ish compared to this, both in weight and material. The upper assembly is unfortunately plastic, though the tri-rail assembly is metal. Angry Gun and some other companies will most likely have a metal upper sometime soon, keep your fingers crossed for a red dot upper. The unfortunate part of the upper being plastic is that the threading for the outer barrel are two halves of the plastic coming together. Not so bad, though as I showed in one of the last pictures in my album if you over tighten the grub screw the pieces will bend, leading to accuracy issues. Airsoft Taiwan probably over tightened it after painting the tip. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Function/Assembly: Function is no different than a standard P90. You have your round selector switch, dual side charging handle, dual side magazine release and a tri-rail. Being a bullpup, the trigger is a little on the heavier side, though moving your trigger finger a little higher up helps a lot. Magazine can be a little bit tricky when you're inserting it. If you watched Redwolf Airsoft's video you should know by now that you are NOT supposed to slap it down, even if Tim did do it immediately after. Due to how the valve connects the magazine to the internal gas chamber they need to be lined up properly. I've had a few points where I've pushed the magazine down without the valves being properly lined up and had a mist of gas released in my face. The magazine is very easy to load, no special feed lips or odd angles required, just point it down and load. They hold a LOT of gas, though out of the box you might get some varying performance or you may only be able to load a small amount of gas. This happens when you still have air in the magazine which displaces the gas. An easy way to solve this is to hold the release valve for just a second while filling the gas. You don't need to do it too long, only for a moment after you see gas start to shoot out. This can happen with most every gas gun, same steps to fix it apply. One thing I didn't notice in my first look-around of the gun is that there is actually a dry-fire mode. Right next to the feeding port on the magazine is a small metal plate you can push forward to cover the separate part of the follower which actuates a lever on the inside of the gun to slightly lock the bolt back. Hop-up uses the same rotary design you find in most WE GBBR's, (ex. Scar's, Ace VD, AK, etc) very easy to use, you can adjust it by removing the magazine. Turn left to raise the hop, right to lower it. Accuracy is pretty decent, I was landing most shots on a tree in my back yard 100 and 150 feet away with .3's. Much better stock hop-up assembly than the Scar H, though there is still room for improvement Disassembly is veeeeeeeery easy, you can disassemble most of it in the gun in a few seconds. First step is to pull the charging handle, locking back the hammer. The carrier/recoil assembly will not move unless the hammer is locked back all the way. Next, take off the magazine and you'll notice a button right above the thumb hole. Push it down and the entire assembly slide off. Aim the body down and the carrier assembly will slide right out. The butt plate slides upwards, and the trigger assembly can be removed by pulling up a little lever and aiming it down so it slides out. When reassembling, be careful of the position of the butt plate! The recoil rod assembly has a pin which sits in a slot in the butt plate, and if it isn't seated properly you will have feeding/cycling issues. The P90 uses a closed bolt system, but it is NOT the closed bolt AWSS system WE had previously used. The real P90 fires from a closed bolt position, and WE replicated this in their manual. A closed bolt basically means that the carrier and bullet are seated and fully forward waiting for the hammer to release and strike the firing pin. In the case of GBB's it strikes the release valve. Most every modern GBB uses a system like this. It is open bolt and closed bolt, though it doesn't use the AWSS system. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Firing: Semi auto test: * FPS: 460.0, Joules: 1.96 * FPS: 452.8, Joules: 1.9 * FPS: 447.9, Joules: 1.86 * FPS 434.4, Joules: 1.75 * FPS: 443.9, Joules: 1.83 * FPS: 440.5, Joules: 1.8 * FPS: 442.1, Joules: 1.81 * FPS: 435.7, Joules: 1.76 * FPS: 439.0, Joules: 1.79 * FPS: 439.9, Joules: 1.8 Full auto test with a new magazine: First 11 bb burst: * FPS: 453.3, Joules: 1.9, RPS: 17.79 Second 12 bb burst: * FPS: 443.4, Joules: 1.82, RPS: 17.2 Third 10 bb burst: * FPS: 421.2, Joules: 15.63, RPS 15.63 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Extra: Dragon speed loader Very nice quality, really sturdy made, seems to be made of the same material the magazine shells are made from. Works like you'd expect any speed loader to work, and it works great. No complaints, looks pretty funny and feels comfortable to hold.ribbedforherpleasure

    WE Colt Junior

    WE just dropped some more videos on their Colt Junior replica. Last we heard from this was back around the start of 2017, close to a year and a half ago, so hopefully we can expect to see them soon. The videos were just uploaded, these photos are from this thread, which strangely enough show it and most everything else with a snail mag. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5QcjNPHnmc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDfuRjVMo3U

    WE All new P-series GBB pistol

    Only lacking the Sig markings in the frame. Kind of curious if those are the exact same slides WE produced for Sig, or if they are the blank slides with KY just deep engraving them

    Anyone have suggestions for removing the pin which holds the hammer mechanism in place? I've been hitting both sides with a hammer and punch and haven't done much but slightly wear at the pin. I've got everything else removed but that pin Edit: And within a minute of me posting I managed to remove it

    WE All new P-series GBB pistol

    I wonder if the inner frame on the VFC is steel like on the WE. Given the BBU and frame have the same color I'm leaning towards it being pot metal. Besides that, does anyone else think this looks a little rushed? Not many of the internals look to be properly if at all coated.

    WE All new P-series GBB pistol

    QRF magazine posted some preview images for their upcoming issue and the pictures they used for the WE Sigs had no trademarks on them, not even on the frame. WE was smart enough to make non-traded molds off the bat, wonder if they saw this coming.

    Western Arms cocking issues

    Did you recently take the grip off and put it back on? There's a chance the lower part of the disconnector isn't properly being pushed by either the trigger bar or the leaf spring. There is also a spring which sits under the top part of the disconnector (the one which touches the blowback unit) which may have gotten removed through disassembly.

    A lot of the comments on the post aren’t in GHK’s favor, they ended up dropping it to save face after they realized the community wasn’t with them lol

    And here’s another shot of the gap from Redwolf’s video. In this shot it’s more straight forward than at an angle. This person is moving their camera around a fair bit so it’s hard to get a decent screenshot, though you can see a pretty noticeable gap the entire receiver section, not just the rear portion. Really not hard to find at all

    Icolater, GHK also threatened to sue an Arms-Cool user for “libel against quality of GHK M4” after they posted a thread with their issues and said some sharp stuff. They made a big post about it on Facebook too if you want to see it still.

    I'm not either and don't have one yet, (probably won't get one, not a big fan of GHK or their guns) that's just what I've heard so take it with a grain of salt. The is the spacing between the upper and lower where they meet.

    GHK SIG SG 552 GBBR

    Keeping up with the Hong Kong crowd, there are a few issues with the first batch. Two biggest issues off the bat is that the sprint inside the front pin makes removal much more difficult than it should be. Pair that with the really unchangable gap between the receivers and it’s left a sour taste in some mouths. Also, there were a few cases with the magazine well on preorder models were too narrow for the magazines and prevented any feeding without filing the shell.

    WE T65 Strength test..?

    From what I saw the story is that someone over on Arms-Cool said they could "fold gun into three pieces using bare hands", "put on knee, put hand on sides and push". They were pretty adamant without giving any more details and just regurgitating the same thing over and over. We still gave it a fairly decent beating though, I'd be surprised if most standard gas blowback AR's would come out without any sort of bending or whatnot

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    Still doing some tweaks and fine tuning, but here is my mostly finished WE base Prime/Iron Airsoft Remington R5. Upper is an Iron Airsoft WA based R5 set modified to fit the WE internals, the entire hopup collar assembly needed to be redesigned and 3D printed, getting them machined now. Lower is #10 out of the 100 MPL lowers Prime made for the WE system, only took a small bit of milking to fit the upper properly. Full parts list here: Upper: * Iron Airsoft R5 upper receiver (Cerekoted in Patriot Brown (needs to be redone sometime soon)) *Seekins Precision DNA charging handle *Angry Gun gen 2 steel bolt carrier *(Not currently installed) Poseidon ZERO 1 WE nozzle *Angry Gun WE M4 hop-up *Falcon Double point VS-Z 80 degree hop-up bucking *Falcon 6.03 330mm CNC Copper alloy inner barrel *Custom outer barrel/hop-up collar pieces. *WE MSK flash hider *Daniel Defense fixed front and rear sights *DLC titanium forward assist *V7 dust cover (not currently attached *3D made angled grip, there surprisingly aren’t many Cadex attachment pieces on the market. Might redesign to make it more ergonomic. Lower: *Prime WE Magpul Lower (Cerekoted in Patriot Brown (needs to be redone sometime soon)) *Stock WE trigger assembly (Wii Tech may be making WE parts, I’ll probably move to them if they do) *Angry Gun anti rotation pins *V7 ambi short 57-90 degree selector (currently at the 90 degree position)(Locked to semi only) *V7 magazine catch *V7 body pins *Daniel Defense buffer tube *Unknown brand H buffer *Unknown brand buffer spring, looking for a Viper Tech Spring *V7 castle nut *V7 QD endplate *BCM MOD 2 pistol grip(not currently attached) *BCM MOD 0 stock *ERGO Suregrip *MFT minimalist stock(not currently attached) *Airsoft Platz Stiffy Knob The magazine is the Sankoshop Remington engraved MSK magazine. I’m 6 new MSK mags custom done, just got photos from my guy.

    WE/Iron Airsoft/Prime Remington R5 GBBR Custom Build

    Also! I've got my six MSK magazines engraved, they should arrive sometime in the next week or two depending on shipping.
  23. WE Remington R5 Custom Build I purchased this Iron Airsoft R5 for the WA system over two years ago, and just about a month ago I found it again tucked away in my storage unit and got to work trying my best to convert it to the WE system. Full parts list here: Upper: * Iron Airsoft R5 upper receiver (Cerekoted in Patriot Brown (needs to be redone sometime soon)) *Seekins Precision DNA charging handle *Angry Gun gen 2 steel bolt carrier *(Not currently installed) Poseidon ZERO 1 WE nozzle *Angry Gun WE M4 hop-up *Falcon Double point VS-Z 80 degree hop-up bucking *Falcon 6.03 330mm CNC Copper alloy inner barrel *Custom outer barrel/hop-up collar pieces. *WE MSK flash hider *Daniel Defense rear fixed sight (didn’t come with the screw and all the standard length screws were too short) *Tippman flip up front sight (soon to be replaced with the Daniel Defense front fixed sight) Lower: *Prime WE Magpul Lower (Cerekoted in Patriot Brown (needs to be redone sometime soon)) *Stock WE trigger assembly (Wii Tech may be making WE parts, I’ll probably move to them if they do) *Angry Gun anti rotation pins *V7 ambi short 57-90 degree selector (currently at the 90 degree position)(Locked to semi only) *V7 magazine catch *V7 body pins *Daniel Defense buffer tube *Unknown brand H buffer *Unknown brand buffer spring, looking for a Viper Tech spring *Stock WE castle nut and end plate (being replaced with V7 castle nut and end plate) *BCM MOD 2 pistol grip *BCM MOD 0 stock *ERGO Suregrip (not currently attached) *MFT minimalist stock *Airsoft Platz Stiffy Knob https://imgur.com/a/boqzzAE The two most important parts of this build are the Iron Airsoft R5 upper, and the Prime Magpul WE lower. The Prime lower is number #10 out of the #100 officially licensed lowers Prime made, which makes it all the more special. The lower, being designed for the WE system didn’t take any special work to get working, though I did need to very lightly mill off a small amount right above the front body pin to allow the uppers to close together. The first set for the upper was to extend the auto sear cut as far as possible to allow it to make with the WE lower. The WE trigger box, specifically the portion with the valve knocker extends upwards farther than on most systems and needs the cut so the upper and lower can mate. On a standard WA to WE barrel adapter, there are tabs on the 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock positions which extend into and keep the WA barrel in place, and then further up tabs on the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions which extend into the WE hop-up, and by extension the WE upper receiver. Here's the GunsModify barrel adapter: And my adapter for reference: The IA R5 outer barrel is different from standard WA based barrels. For the R5 barrel, the barrel extension also acts as a barrel collar which lines up with the secondary collar which locks into the receiver. The first part I made was similar to the WA to WE barrel adapter, though I extended the piece 2.5mm, and excluded the tabs for the WA outer barrel. This piece helps keep the WE hopup centered in the other piece, along with the tabs in the WE hop-up. The tabs on the WE hop-up also needed to be filed down to properly fit into the receiver. The next piece holds the WE hop-up in place along with the modified barrel extension, and then threads into the R5 outer barrel. After threading all of the pieces on everything sits extremely secure with no movement. Both this, and the barrel adapter part were printed in Shapeways Fine Detail Plastic for the highest quality prints. I am in the process of getting both parts machined out of aluminum, though I won’t have those parts available for a while. In order for the real selector to work properly with he WE parts, the disconnector needed to be filed down slightly. Otherwise the gun fired auto while set to semi-auto. The last parts which required some custom work were part of the bolt catch assembly. For whatever reason Prime designed their lower in a way which does not allow the stock WE bolt catch pins to fit, needing a larger. I 3D printed the bolt catch pins to get the fitment right, and will eventually get the larger WE pin turned down to fit. The stock, heat treated steel WE bolt catch also needed to be filed down to fit. The R5 outer barrel secures into the upper received using four M5x10 screws and a locking plate. Iron Airsoft’s method for locking these screws involves you sticking an allen wrench in the small open slot, rotating the screw maybe a 6th of the way, over and over and over. This took ridiculously too long, so I purchased a 19” T-handle allen wrench from McMaster-Carr which cuts the barrel attachment/removal time down to a minute or two. Lastly, a few of my MSK magazines have the Remington “R” engraved into the lowest portion of the magazine shell on both the left and right sides. These were originally sold by Sanko Shop back when the WE MSK was first released, though they dried up years ago. I just purchased 6 new black MSK magazines and will be having them engraved within a week or two. While not necessary for the build itself, both of my grips can comfortably hold the Airsoft Platz Stiffy knob, which helps tremendously for hop-up adjustment. This build still has a lot of tweaking and time to be put into it, though the hardest parts are out of the way. Lemme know what you think!

    Things could have changed, though I haven't seen any numbers over 100. This Popular Airsoft article on them mentions it as well. https://www.popularairsoft.com/news/prime-magpul-upper-and-lower-receivers-we-m4-gbb-coming-september What number do you have?

    WE/Iron Airsoft/Prime Remington R5 GBBR Custom Build

    Got a few more parts in! Daniel Defense front and rear sight are installed, replaced the forward assist with a black piece rather than the grey (still need to replace the dust cover) The biggest additions are the pair of 3d printed angled grips. Considering the Cadex rail system being used I couldn't use something like Mlok and needed to design my own grips. I'm pretty proud of how they turned out, though they are pretty bulky compared to the Magpul grip for example. I might make them a little bit more ergonomic later down the line, just depends where I want to go with it. Stuck with the flat back side to leave the option for putting maybe a standard foregrip behind it.
