WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

Recommended Posts

Just look at your nozzle and you'll know for sure.

Sorry if this has been discussed before, but how does this compare to the TSD nozzle?

I have absolutely no clue on taking my M16 apart.

 

I WAS going to leave it alone internally, but I want to use it more, and the FPS needs to come down before I can do that.

 

Ben.

 

EDIT:: I just popped the receiver open on my M16A3.

 

I can move the bolt carrier thing back, but it doesn't want to come out. The nozzle won't move.

Yup if your M16 came with the big CO2 nozzle then get version 2 or scar one. It'll work with Green Gas and CO2 mags.

 

If your M16 came with the small Green Gas nozzle the get Version 1. It will only work with green gas mags.

 

And from what i heard the TSC adjustable system is poo. And btw if you want to keep the power you have to loctite the mechanism inside the nozzle.

jkpics: how is it supposed to stay in? Did you loc tight it in?

 

The pin hole does not go all the way thrue, so when you mount the rail there is no where for the pin to go.

you telling me i wasted 50$ on 2 "TSC Adjustable rod"? guess i'll have to stay with them for some time.

 

L4byr1nth, once you release the rear pin, and "break" your M16 in 2 (make sure there is no mag), pull the charging handle carefully, and the bolt will follow. then simply remove the bolt smoothly, and check if your nozzle is V1 or V2.

 

BTW, any advice on how to install my TSC Adjustable rod?, need to get it to work on 2 M16, but got no clue (just received them on monday)

Simply remove the existing piston, then put the tsc in. oh and put your nozzle on it. you're done!icon6.gif

 

Yeah, you make it sound easy! i've already seen the video (www.ts-custom.com), seems easy enough, at least its twice as easy as with the SCAR :D

What?!? That's half the fun of having a replica so close to the real thing that the ATF decided to ban its sales in the US. I've probably disassembled my rifle to user level more times than I've used it in games just because its fun to do. :P

I tend to get it working how I want it, and then leave it the hell alone...

 

This one works great, but it's too hot for full-auto at my local site, and thus I need the RA-Tech NPAS.

A GBB Rifle is not an AEG that you can "leave the hell alone". GBB rifles require regular maintenance, much like a real steel rifle. And parts will break with usage - just like a real steel rifle. Luckily, as with a real steel rifle, your GBB is designed for easy field maintenance.

 

So you'll have to get used to cracking open that thing sooner or later, so you can lubricate and/or clean off the dust/dirt/etc. But don't be afraid, it's not an AEG with a gearbox, screws, and hex bolts. This GBB rifle is a breeze to take apart.

 

To remove your bolt and look at the nozzle, make sure the mag is out and your hammer is de-cocked (just put the selector in "semi" and pull the trigger). Then push out the rear pin above the selector switch with your finger, pin, small screwdriver, or a pencil. Just push it in, all the way through until it clicks on the other side of the rifle. I will not fall out.

 

Then grab the top of your upper receiver (where the rail is that you mount your optics/carrying handle) and pull up. It'll make the barrel pivot down, folding the rifle into an "L" shape, with the barrel pointing straight down. Don't be scared, the barrel/upper receiver won't fall off as its held by another pin in front of the mag well.

 

Then grab the charging handle (a/k/a "cocking" handle) from the hanging receiver and pull it back. Don't worry if your charging handle falls out.

 

That silver metal thingy right under the charging handle "T" is your bolt. Simply grab it and pull it the rest of the way out, you'll have to angle it down a little. but it should pull out easily. Once you have your bolt out, just look at the nozzle in the front. If you have a version 1, you'll see a two o-rings the same size. A version 2 has the rear o-ring bigger - it looks stepped. Also, in this slightly disassembled state you can now clean the inner receiver, trigger pack and the bolt of dirt, spray in some lube, clean your barrel (you can look through it now), check your hop-up, etc.

 

To reassemble, just reverse the steps above. If your charging handle fell out, don't jam it back in straight... angle it down a little and push it in until the charging handle slips into its groove. Also, with the charging handle still pulled out, you'll have to slide the bolt back in under it. Then the charging handle and bolt will both move together until they fall back into place. Then pull the barrel up back up until it doesn't look like an "L" anymore, and looks more like an M16, and push the pin back into place. If it doesn't lock, make sure you have the selector in "Semi" and the hammer is de-cocked.

 

Afterwards, pat yourself on the back. You just took apart your first M16. And if perchance you are given a real M16 in the future (Zombie Apocalypse, etc).... you now know how to break it apart too.

 

You might also want to eventually pick up an armorers wrench and learn to take your barrel out. You'll eventually have to do this when you need to replace the hop up rubber, which will wear out faster than an AEG's. But, once again, it's a 5 minute job compared to working on AEG.

I would even go as far as saying that its disassembly is a function rather than a feature. Don't be afraid of screws and small bits popping out and disappearing; it's not happening. To further enforce how easy it is, check out this 11-year-old going at it:

*disregard the further disassembly of the bcg as hers is real

alright, i dont really have time to read all 300+ pages of this thread but um considering getting a WE M4. i know it has its flaws but are these fixable? either with replacement/RS parts or by making my own? (i have access to full shop/CAD equipment and can use it). my other main concern was accuracy, has anyone solved the hop-up problems?

thanks in advance

These guns are sick. My only complaint is the availability of parts. The stores that do stock them have horrible service so it's a crapshoot of when they will arrive, if ever. There are a few things that are recommended to change like the nozzle, getting a tightbore, the new hop up. I recommend it. There is a small group in Calgary, three of us that I know of, that have them.

AirsoftBuddy shipped my two recent orders very quickly. OTOH they haven't responded to my emails and some people have old issued that were never resolved.

Yeah, I've noticed that you've managed to get two orders shipped to you from them in the last month, and in just over that time I've had a confirmation email, and an update to "processing" email. both within a week of the order being place, and sod all else since. They've just been sent a politely worded threat of PayPal dispute. If PayPal do nothing, I'll have a chat with my bank about it.

Just open a Paypal dispute, give it 2-3 days then escalate to a claim if AB doesn't respond. I waited for my order for over 2 weeks with zero communication. Luckily I was refunded my full amount through Paypal, and ordered my parts from another overseas retailer.

 

Stay away from Airsoft Buddy, they only offer one shipping method (EMS 3-4 day delivery) which isn't cheap, and they won't ship your items until they feel like it.

Hey guys even AFC have trouble with contacting AB(AFC sales wholesales to AB)! Maybe could we open a thread to know how many guys are concerned? I'm waiting for a full order snice 11th september(~84$)and for many missing parts from a Group Order. Paid ~1280$, 400$ of parts are missing! Complete upper, CO2 kits...And in this new thread, each guy could post the parts involved in his order what do you think about? And we may have to post this on other forums as well! Maybe will this make him up!
