WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

Recommended Posts

WETTI, You touched on it briefly previously (and I understand if you can't go into much detail) but is this rifle receiving much interest among the military/LE community as a training tool? Does WE genuinely believe their rifle has a role to play in this area and are you actively pursuing this market? Kind regards, Chris

is there a kind of grease i can get for this gun at the local hardware store that would work well?

 

I have a tube of Super Lube , Synthetic grease with Synocolon(PTFE) /teflon. dielectric

yeah i read that, but i should be getting my gun tomorrow and maybe this would last me until i buy something like the krytox stuff or shooters choice.

I was wondering if this super lube, that i hear good thing about for AEG mechboxes, would be sufficient since i already have a tube.

 

according to super-lubes MSDS it includes:

Synthetic Hydrocarbon

Hydro treated polymer

anti-oxidant

fumed silica

thermal stabilizer

polytetrafluorethylene

polyglycol

proprietary additives

 

 

and i don't see petroleum on the list.

its not very great for an airseal. but it has good contact area.

 

the 6.02 chrome plated barrels sound nice though.

 

doesnt look like youll need a new chamber either. just the new bucking and barrel.

Hi Chris,

 

(1) Here's a few pics & vid from Chile: The Chilean Army had just tested the AWSS M4 as a legitimate force-on-force training platform for their current training program.

(2) The Oregon (USA) police dept. has purchased a batch of WE AWSS M4 for internal training purposes.

 

(3) The U.S. Army is currently going into phase 2 of their evaluation process with regard to the WE AWSS training platform.

(1) This is a direct drop-in replacement for the existing system.

 

(2) This new hop-up system will be released in conjunction with our new 6.02mm chrome-plated (mirror finish) Ultra-Precision match barrels

WE AWSS' new all-steel nozzle (for CO2 applications)

 

Pls note: This item will be shipped with all our new CO2 packages; but can be purchased separately for use with all existing systems.

Excellent news, any idea when we are likely to see these hits the retailers ?

 

BTW mail resent to alternative addy ;)

 

Once our final testings are completed (by this Sunday), production will commence immediately. :)

i guess that explains the need for the steel nozzle, CO2.

 

what is in the full CO2 package?

 

The steel nozzle & the CO2 mag is the only difference; otherwise, most stay the same.

And what's the expected fps? :)

 

The mags will come in a few 'factory-preset' power configurations. Initial figures range from 550fps - 700fps (not confirmed for final release versions)

That blows... Any chance of a 328 / 350 FPS (0.2g) version?

 

WETTI, I have held off buying additional mags to wait for your CO2 mags to arrive. I also need my magazines to operate at around 350/370 FPS using 0.28g. Please could you confirm if this configuration will be available/possible? Will a user be able to change these 'factory-preset' power configurations? How would one do this? Can the power be 'dialled' in on the field?

 

Thanks in advance.

I really hope you mean 0.2g...

 

No, I really do mean 0.28g but something suitable for 0.20g would also be fine. They are brown as well so you don't see the little stingers coming :)

You know that's the same as firing a 0.2g beeb at ~415FPS, right? I don't know of any sites in the UK that would allow you to use a semi or full auto weapon at that speed... :/

eep. 550-700? I was hoping we could dial it in to somewhere around 390 fps with .2s (in between the Taiwan and Hong Kong green gas versions). I like c02 better than green gas :(
