WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

Recommended Posts

M4A1, CQB-R, M16A3, SCAR-L (tan or black) are available now. AK, MP5, SCAR-H will be coming soon. M249 SAW, UMP and Sig556 are possibilities down the road.

 

 

Now that's what I'm talking about! I've been begging for a gas in the mag style GBB MP5 for years now :D Had a Maruzen MP5k that I put a PDW stock and suppressor on to make it a little bigger but the inability to run green gas reliably and the lack of a bolt stop killed it for me. Tried the Escort A-Spec MP5 but couldn't get over the external rig and wonky classic internals.

 

If WE makes a GBB MP5 of any kind I'll buy it the day it's released!

I'll be hoping for a navy trigger group with 3 round burst, but I suppose I that might be asking too much lol

oh lord.

my charging handle snapped for the second time, even though i tried as hard as i could to baby this one.

 

i feel terrible for asking tokyohobby again for another one, due to shipping costs and i already got one from them.

 

I don't really have the cash to purchase another one either.

 

Is there a parts dealer i could get it from in US? Seems that Horizon is down.

I bought a Rock River charging handle, modded it per WE M4 wiki, and it hasn't failed me yet. :)

M249!!! That will be one hell of a gas tank in the box mag!!! Would be pretty awesome and no disadvantage if used against hi-cappers

Mine went with the hot weather- the tip snapped while shooting. I've ordered the 7075 Aluminium version from Airsoft Buddy for $47 plus shipping. I assume this is the real deal strength!

This question is kinda stupid, but AGM M4? or WE?

 

I've heard WE took the flaws the WA and AGM have, and took away most of them. The AGM is going to end up costing me about $350 anyways, and I've been told on some part like 155 or something needs to be replaced on it. That's it. With AGM I might need bolt face, NPAS, bolt stop, right?

 

 

You heard wrong. WE has NOTHING to do with WA or its chinese made clone.

 

As stated in a previous post theya re completely different animals.

 

As for the AGM immediately requiring upgradeparts, yes that is true.

 

It is junk plastic or weak pot metal in many critical areas.

 

Plastic bolt face/nozzle wears out in no time - and it will be flattened IMMEDIATELY after one bb jam.

 

Buffer is cheap plastic. (I mean really cheap).

 

The hop chamber is plastic and works about as poorly as the gun it clones.

 

The entire trigger mechanism is monkey metal.

 

Just think of it as a stock WA with all the same problems (except a weak plastic body) that you bought for a good deal.......you'll need the savings to pay for all the needed upgrades.

 

My grandfather always said, "You buy cheap, you buy twice".

To be fair you are asking that question on a thread all about the WE, where most of the WE users hang out, you're not going to get a fair answer.

 

Also it really depends on what you are planning on using the rifle for? Main weapon, backup, a bit of fun etc. and also the weather where you are, site limits etc. Depending of what you plan to use it for really depends on what gun is right for you.

 

Check out both reviews and see what both sets of users are saying before you make up your mind.

To be fair i wont recommend You none of the guns. I have WE and love this rifle, but You are the one who have to make decission. Like happy.al said read reviews and decide on Your own. There is another player entering GBB market KJ/Tania Koba M4A1 for good price from airsoftbuddy. You might consider this rifle as well

WELL made their Mp5K. Some of my friends said it was decent. It's only $95 shipped from EbayBanned

 

To Nazio:

 

I did in fact see the KJ video and the preorder on AB. However, I'm in the market for something soon, and by this is only preorder. By the time people order, get theirs, test it out, it'll be too late for me. And I have heard multiple good things about the WE, much better than the WA. I read somewhere the KJ is another WA clone, and so I'm expecting similar if not the same problems. Overall, I think The WE is my best bet.

So You've made the decission already. You are looking for cofirmation only. I love M4 by WE, even if it gives me heartbreak somtimes( last milsim Madbull BB'S .4 shattered in chamber. However i am last person to say WE is better than WA, beacuse i think such opinion is always based on subjective feelings of user. Friend of my asked me "why dont You buy AEG", and i've told him - I wont because i love WE GBB performance. In other hand i wont be seen as WE user with unfair opinion just because of fact that i have WE.

Where? I can't see any trace of a WE GBB Scar-L for sale anywhere.

 

I'v actually got cash set aside to buy one.

 

James told me they just released at the end of last week. it will still be quite a few weeks before they get shipped out, get through customs, and get into the hands of various dealers around the globe. be patient, they're coming! :)

You know guys I bought my WE M4 back in December of last year a Version 1. Through all the headache and continuous upgrade parts I'm proud to say this gun is amazing. It has turned into a reliable consistent platform that just blows my mind when firing it. After working on 12 AEG's this week I looked over at my WE and picked her up and loaded a mag. I decided I was going to take a break from all the broken pistons, fried switches and installing mosfets to go fire my WE. After sending some rounds down the street I have come to conclusion that this gun with the 6.02 barrel with the right rubber is just as accurate as a highly upgraded AEG. I feel that since some of the new parts have started to roll in a lot of issues are getting resolved. I'm excited about the future of WE and all the new parts that will be rolling out this coming year. Thanks to WETTI and a lot of you guys on this thread this gun has turned the corner in less than six months of existence......think of the further progress we will see in the next six months. Looking back at all the issue I have encountered it has all been worth it to me......my WE M4 AWSS is the best weapon I own and over the six months I have been tinkering with it I have come to learn a lot about this gun. I cant speak for everyone but for me this journey was well worth it

Its 11*C here atm, just that little reluctant to use the WE without CO2, mine is the old V1 without the CO2 compatibility so that can be a bit of an issue.

 

But yeah mine is functioning well at the moment, cold weather performance is the only downside now. At 11*C It shot at 435fps initially but plateau'ed at 395fps on a 0.2g.

My friends ask me the same. I just reply "It's a friggin WE M4. Nuff' said"
