WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

Recommended Posts

I experienced the exact same thing. I tried using a King Arms suppressor on my WE M16, and the noise increased dramatically. Will try the recommended method of increasing the distance between the inner barrel and the suppressor and see if there's any difference.

 

SureFire makes suppressors? O.o

This will turn my world up-side-down and open doors to new must-have's. Please supply linkage to their most beautiful suppressors.

 

Like quite a few people I had some trouble with my bolt stop. The problem with mine was that the spring which is supposed to return the bolt lock is too strong, so even though the magazine is empty the spring pushes down on the magazine bolt stop. So cut a few coils of that spring and you should be OK. Try cutting of one at a time and stop before you go overboard. You don't want to end up with a limp bolt catch.

 

Yeah my small King Arms did the same but my Gemtech G5 suppresses the sound REALLY good, can't say for sure but it seems to reduce the sound print by half. Surefire does have a suppressor line, http://www.surefire.com/RifleCarbineSuppressors , but i don't find them really that attractive though.

 

Anyway you're talking about part #78 right ? I might try that but i think my problem is actually the opposite .. the bolt catch is quite limp already :blink:

Yes, I am indeed talking about part No. 78. If the catch is already limp thats odd... remove your spring and have a look if it's of the correct length. If not, you should buy a spare.

Small ballistic question: when shooting from my window(at 5-6m from the ground)my BBs start heading the sky after nearly 50-60m. When shooting on the ground will be the trajectory as flat as with a perfectly setted up hop up?

If you were using real ammunition, maybe. Air gets less dense the higher it is from sea level and less dense air means less friction against wind, which would mean a faster, more accurate bullet.

 

But this is airsoft, and you're talking a mere 5~6m difference, add to that the fact that the WE hop is a bit wonky to begin with. So no, there will hardly be any notable difference.

Question for WETTI:

 

Is the "WE SCAR-L CQC Gas BlowBack Rifle (Dark Earth)" on UNCompany.com a "WETTI" version, or a WE?

 

(With all this version-talk I don't know what to look for....If there are difference: what are they?)

 

Thanks in advance.

 

 

P.S. I ordered (again) the WE M4 CO2 conversion set, at yet another shop: "sorry, out of stock, can we sell you something else?"....

Has anyone tried the VLTOR MUR upper reciever from Dytac?

 

Redwolf claims it fits the WE.

Quoting from a famous philosopher ...

 

do a bit of search on your own please, that has been discussed several times already. ;)

 

Yes it does fit, it will rattle quit a bit which it seems to be largely fixed by using RATech's Magic Pin.

 

Yes, I am indeed talking about part No. 78. If the catch is already limp thats odd... remove your spring and have a look if it's of the correct length. If not, you should buy a spare.

 

Well it seems the spring wasn't the original one that came with gun, i received a v1 but the bolt stop was already changed to the new one, i guess they either tried to fix the problem and failed or the spring that came with it was essentially crappola. I got a substitute and now is working like a charm ;)

yeah sorry, I saw victories post in the picture thread, and in a hurry, didn't notice he posted here as well.

 

Hen i just had my morning sarcasm on, anyway i am actually interested too ... not in that particular upper but if any upper made for the PTW fits the WE also B)

Hey guys incase you haven't read the news. RA-Tech made a adjustable valve for the WE GBB system.

 

But they demonstrated on a scar. So i'm not sure if it would work for the M4 too. But after watching the video a few times and thinking a bit i thought it would be fine.

 

But i'm not entirely sure. Does anyone know if the rod behind the nossle is same length on the scar and the M4? If so i think it would be compatible.

 

Can someone confirm this please.

 

Bless RA-Tech.

Well that sure is good news, at least we have many options. I ordered a couple of those uni-directional guide rod's from TS-Custom, they should allow to adjust the power but until i actually install one of them can't say for sure.

But i would buy one ffrom RATech if someone tries them on the M4.

Ok, so I'm looking to add to my DMR WE M16A3.

 

I already have a nice 4x32 ACOG.

 

What I need is a small, short bipod, perhaps Harris-type?

 

Also, anyone know of an RIS/RAS that will fit an M16A3 nicely?

 

Ben.

 

EDIT:: If there's no rail system, how would I go about shortening the outer barrel length to M4 size, adding a RIS system, and then cover the rest of the inner barrel with a silencer?

There is the Dboys M5 RIS, but it needs some work on the front section to fit well. On the other hand, there exists RS RIS for relatively low prices, manufactured by Leapers for example

For the bipod, parts4ar15.com sells a nice one for a good price..

 

Here are some pice of my DMR M16A3

On these pics you'll be able to see some of the details of the RIS. The scope is the 5th Gen 3-9x50 Red/Green Mil-Dot AO from Leapers. The laser comes from Leapers as well

Since posting, I've discovered a Laylax rail that bolts to the underside of a normal M4/M16 handgrip.

 

Anyone know if that might fit the WE?

 

Because then I can just use an RIS bipod, and it'd be much simpler.

 

Also will something like this;

Fit the gun?

 

Cheers!

Hmmm... I'm currently looking at adding the following;

 

LaRue 12" R.I.S. system <<--- Not sure it'll fit

 

Fab Defense M4 Magwell <<--- Pretty sure it'll fit

 

Fab Defense Fast Mag Grip <<--- Pretty sure it'll fit (rail mounted)

 

Madbull KX3 Flash Hider <<--- Not sure if the WE is + or - thread though?

 

Some kind of R.I.S. mounted bipod?

 

Ben.
