WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

Recommended Posts

Hey I did some investigations, take a look:

 

there are actually 2 different DD RAS clones:

 

The Ras with 6 screws:

and the RAS with 4 screws: (the one you were talking about I assume)

 

http://ebaybanned.com/product_info.php?cPa...roducts_id=1666

 

I had several people confirming that the 6-screw-edition fits fine with just a tiny gap between Ras and upper.

 

Okay well i can tell you that IBICO has the MMKK18 rail,the more expensive one. and that works fine with the RS barrel nut.

 

Mine is from rsov

http://rsov.com/index.php?target=products&...product_id=3482

 

that one in black. is the one that was bad quality.

it's pretty much same price as the one in ebaybanned, trades look same. and same colors, so i thought they were the same.

 

 

a review of the one you're talking about on ebaybanned by Martial Portiche:

Beautiful rail. Very nice markings and finish, could be mistaken for the real thing. The barrel nut fitted on my WA M4 GBB, so its RS spec. However, for those others that want to install it on a M4 GBB, you will have a gap between upper receiver and the rail, since the barrel nut collar is longer on a M4 GBB due to the extra width from the outer barrel.

any retailers in the US selling WE m16s?

 

Hey I just pre-ordered the M4A1 co2 Version 3 from Blowback Armory a San Jose, California based retailer so, if you are in the U.S. you won't have to deal with customs yourself! good luck!

recently modified my nozzle to make it shoot 320+fps.

 

It does that now and is perfect but I have realised that the blowback intensity is very slightly affected (weaker) and will probably be more significant when the whether gets colder over here.

 

anyone experience this and is there a solution?

will cutting the buffer spring do anything?

 

also...

What is the easiest way of taking out the fire selector?

I want to make an ambi switch by drilling and screwing in a spare AEG fire switch to the other side.

Anyone done this and how feasible to you think this is?

Righty, just a quick one guys.

 

I've solved my bolt stop and hop issues, but now another problem has reared its ugly head.

 

I'm getting a real inconsistency problem.

 

Some shots fire nice and straight and go for a considerable distance, yet others just dribble out of the barrel and curve sharply downward after about 5m.

 

I can't quite determine whether its a hop issue, or a power issue.

 

Any ideas?

Sounds like when you over-HOP SGM's in a Tanaka... It goes flat for about 5m, then the HOP kicks in, and it curves into the ground?

 

What about either less powerful gas, or heavier ammo and slightly less HOP applied?

 

Ben.

hmmmm. don't want to run it on anything less than propane...

 

I'll give some heavier ammo a whirl. see if that cures it. Fingers crossed.

 

 

BBStriker:

 

check out the WIKI

http://wem4guide.wikidot.com/

 

the take down guide is in there. The nozzle assembly goes in your bolt carrier, and the brass cylinder goes in the upper receiver. To get into the upper, you'll need to take the foresight and stuff off.

I received my CO2 conversion kit today. Does anyone know if there's a guide on how to install it?

 

Thanks

 

Can't help with how you'd convert it, but here might have something useful.

I look forward to hear what you have to say about it! Especially what it's like in our wonderful warm Britain! :-D

How have you modified your nozzle?

Chef mine just started doing this....the one thing I did also notice was if you fire it about 10 times it corrects itself with mine. Mine seems like the first 10 shots are losing pressure though the velocity is low and causes the bb to go about 15ft then fall to the ground but after about 10 or so shots the velocity kicks up and shoots amazing. Does anyone have a idea what would cause this issue?

I'm guessing this is with green/propane mags.

 

It is likely too much liquid in the mags, if you dry fire do you notice the white pfoot of liquid come out the barrel and then it stops once it "breaks in" ?

By further threading the rod, then screwing it into the back of the nozzle to press the float valve?

 

That shouldn't really have any negative effect on blowback strength. Is it very noticeable, or just barely?

Heavier BB's are highly recommended...heavier than you would normally associate with an AEG.

 

For best results, shoot 0.30g, 0.34g or 0.36g if you have the 350 FPS bolt. if you have the 500 FPS bolt, try 0.40g or 0.43g. you'll be amazed at the difference. this comes direct from WETTI and was tested ourselves when we shot the guns with the Rangers and SWAT guys last week (videos of that a couple pages back).

awesome, thanks. Will you guys be getting the version with Colt's trades? and will you be carrying replacement and upgrade parts?

I'd like to know the result of the new co2 conversion kit. Does it have a more reliable consistency on fps?

Well, just tried my M4 using 0.36's....

 

still the same problem.

 

I think its definitely a power inconsistency now though.

 

Decided to run it through the crono, and on 0.2's I get a variation of between about 450fps and just below 300fps. There's no pattern to it.

 

Back on the shelf she goes until I can get hold of the CO2 conversion kit.

 

And to cap my day off, one of the mags started leaking again... So no matter what o-rings I try, how often I soak them, or how much PTFE I stick on it, this one continues to defy me!

Probably the darned Part 117, rubber sleeve, and the steel (non CO2) nozzle.

 

Check if the nozzle is returning fully forward during blowback? If the Nozzle isn't fully forward, then the gas can't go into the valve of the nozzle.

 

The part 117 is too tight.

 

 

Its the cause of much of my grief RE: the WE platform.
