  1. Does yours allow you to activate the safety with the hammer uncocked? Is this a defect?

    As much of a VFC AR fanboy as I am I actually wouldn't trust their other designs. The above post I would only apply to their AR pattern rifles since that's the ones they seem to be focusing on improving over time and there's relatively little to go wrong with an AR design in the first place.

    Probably ill-advised. The trigger components in the MWS are chrome plated to prevent wear. You'd be removing this protection if you start filing away on these.

    If my past experience with ratech parts are any indication those will "explode" as well. In any case a steel bolt stop wouldn't do anything good for the hop up unit. Make one out of nylon like renegade said. All it takes is a dremel tool... or even an exacto knife

    From my experience the WD40 definitely did not destroy any of my o rings. I did not observe cracks and disintegration in the rubber soaked in WD40 as I have with some other types of lubricants. Still I would consider it a short term solution. The swelling goes down after a few days and the same leaks happen again and I would have to re-soak. Ideal solution would be to just find a more snug fitting o ring.

    New firing control group parts have almost no bearing on this problem. The main fault lies with the steel wire trigger bar being too short. When the trigger is bottomed out on semi mode the trigger bar doesn't push the trigger link thingy in the fcg pack far enough back to break the shot. It is only when you pull even harder beyond the design and start flexing material does it get pushed back far enough to trip the sear.

    One thing I found to be hokey about this gbb is that when bumped in the back hard enough the hammer will drop due to the mass of the trigger bar. Only thing that prevents it from firing in this event would be that the hammer would be caught by the auto sear since the bcg would also be bumped out of battery at that moment. This would require cocking the gun again to reactivate the trigger, in which case you would end up with a double feed. So I don't know about adding any more mass to the trigger bar.

    Nope. Won't fit. Trouble is mainly with the hopup system.

    Cheese metal bolt isn't the problem. There's quite a lot of material to wear on that. The problem (or potential problem) is the hop unit.

    I mean if we have more information about how it works we might be able to make a more informed opinion.

    The guy's page seems to be selling his/their projects including this one. Not sure if it's a one off or if he/they are making more. My Chinese reading skills are especially with traditional characters is pretty rusty so I'm not entirely sure what the story is.

    So this is already out there:

    The outer case is made of some pretty cheap plastic though. I barely applied any force on the screws and it put hairline cracks around the screw holes. Though the cracks haven't developed beyond that point. The screws are now just loosely screwed in and held in place by loctite.

    I don't have any inconsistencies my self. Just thinking of some of the things that can cause these problems.
