WE Gas Blow Back M4A1 Carbine

Recommended Posts

The problem with Gas in Mag is that FPS will vary due to temperature. The WE is meant for propane or higher so using 134A/Duster will not work. The lower FPS stated is with the restricted nozzle. During winter, spring and late fall you should be within your field limits. I believe the stated FPS on the websites are taken @ room temp.

 

Your best bet is to wait for the CO2 mags and CO2 bundle to be released. With the restricted nozzle and lower power regulated mags you should be able to play year round.

Yeah okay, I found in one of WETTIs previous posts about their Custom AFC version that shoots 330-350 only sold from them. That sounds like my reliable bet, now just waiting for the CO2 and I'll be good. :)

 

@WETTI: Where will be able to purchase T.S. Custom items from? And any news on a steel charging handle?

Actually, mine works fine on the stuff (27°C) and fully cycles to work the bolt stop. Others here have also reported same. Its just that 134a is relatively more expensive so I'd rather modify the gun to shoot lower on cheaper green gas.

done that :P

 

No obvious damage etc

 

It's leaking right out of the top of the mag as if it's going straight through the whole mag while filling .

I've left the strike valve assembly in silicone for the night

 

There is a metal plug under the gas port/feed lip. Mine was leaking there until I hammered the plug flush with the surface. It's in the wiki.

Last piece of news today: :P

Our brand new, strengthened (material-wise) AWSS M4 charging handle will be released within a week.

any chance you will sell your rifles with these receivers allready installed?

 

NO, WETTI will not do that. These are all after-market parts produced by other manufacturers.

I believe T.S. Custom will be ready for business by no later then Monday (Mar.09). I'll post their link here for all to see then.

 

We are not making any steel charging handles, but our new, strengthened charging handle will be released as soon as next week.

What we've been told, the prototype CO2 magazine and the AFC custom version (330-350) together shooted around 380fps, if I remember correctly (and the ~480 model shoots way over 500). So unless they change the setting in integral regulator before they release the actual production version, that's what we'll get.

 

WETTI: All these news sound really exciting! I'm personally very eager to have a CNC body, strengthened charging handle, new hopup with the chrome plated barrel, lower fps bolt sets, CO2 magazine, higher kick buffers... Sooooooooo many nice new things to upgrade my baby, that I can't wait!

 

:D

That's gonna be sooo cool! A nice body with(why not?)Bushmaster markings!And why not personalisable serial number? All these new parts make that gun every month more attractive!

I apologize if this has already been said, but are there any such places in the US? Has the customs/BATF issue been sorted out?

Hey WETTI,

It's a long shot but have you heard about anyone who is planing to produce a replica Daniel Defense barrel nut which will allow us to use the replica DD Mk.18 rail easily on our rifles.

I know of a lot of people who would love it if you said yes :D

A RS DD barrel nut allows you to do this but it is only available to our American brothers (DD will not ship outside the US)

Many thanks,

Chris

What more can I ask mate :D

What with the DD Mk.18 rail being issued as part of the SOPMOD Block 2 kit the DD rail is and will become very popular with airsofters so I think a replica DD Mk.18 barrel nut would become a great seller.

The issue with the barrel nut and the replica rail is discussed regularly on many of the forums I visit and is a genuine concern with many people in the various communities.

Thank you for taking note of my query WETTI, I really appreciate it.

As I know all china made DD Mk18 is comes with the barrel nut. My WE GBB M4 also installed the china made Mk18. The barrel just need a bit modify, then can fit for your WE M4. Just need to cut short around 2mm, then it can fit. But the outer barrel of the WE M4 also need to rip off around 1mm at the bottom. Otherwise, the barrel nut can't fully go though the outer barrel.

Correction: All T.S. Custom products will be released through a new site called T.S. One (http://www.wix.com/ts1airsoft/TS-One). I believe they'll be operational starting next Monday (Mar. 09). Wholesale inquiries can also be made through T.S. One on all T.S. Custom & LAT products (another after-market parts manufacturer)

WETTI is correct. AB just a reseller.

I managed to save my barrel... Kind of... I had to dremel off all of the threads, and JB Weld it back together. Seems strong enough for now until I find a replacement. Flash hider is still all chewed up though, I just could not get the darned thing off.

 

Anyway, here's what I got for now. Oh, and a couple of pics of its little buddy. I went with the non-trade versions of both.
