WE M14 Gas Blowback Rifle

Recommended Posts

If that's the plastic stock that looks fantastic....

 

I would like the see the info on the VSR barrel as well, I wonder how a TK hop-twist would work...

In your pic showing the upper assembly of the rifle, the tappet appears to be bent downwards maybe from the bolt slamming into it.

 

From the picture it might look that way but it is not. Since the tappet "free rides" and isn't really attached to anything, it's just hanging towards the floor ( 'cause the upper is slightly inclined for the picture ).

So, what upgrades do you guys suggest out of the box other then the NPAS kit when it releases? And what gas works well during the winter, like from 10c-50c? Need something around that but there both extremes of course.

I think Wolf Armouries might have them.

 

If I were you though, I'd give Mark at Tactical Quartermaster a bell, and see when he'll be getting them in.

 

Best service I've had so far by a long shot.

Wow, accuracy sucks (stock), i may just get the ra-tech custom!! either that or skip on this rifle dry.gif, wish it was better...

 

Had it been in a shooting range it would have been more useful as it takes the weather out of the equation.

Because a walled in courtyard (like a rifle range) and a warehouse don't take weather out of the equation? the fact that the results of test in the warehouse and the courtyard were similar I don't think weather was a factor in that accuracy.

30-40 meter range combined with .40s take most of the wind out of the equation...

Which will be never... As they use gas.

 

If you want to skirmish it, every GBB platform out there needs a load of cash dropped into it before you can. WE GBBR's are the most out of the box ready, being able to accept green gas and CO2 in stock form, and having some steel internals, etc.

I have to challenge that with the example of the KJ Works M4, it doesn't need a lot of cash dropped in and it works perfectly out of the box.

I will concur, I actually sold my KJW M4 to get the WE M14, and I sometimes regret the move, as the KJW was a straight shooter out of the box... But when the only replacement that we could get for metal upper receivers, that were breaking, was a plastic receiver, I choked and parted with mine. A 'hanger queen' I did not need... It ended up on EBAY after the buyer scarfed the hard to find mags (gosh I miss that rifle).

 

But the M14 is a very nice piece of work. It is not that straight of a shooter out of the box, but a little work, and you can run and gun the open fields. If you want a DMR or a sniper however, you'll need to roll up your sleeves and tune it up.

 

It is easy to maintain, and just plain feels good in your hands. Admittedly, the hop adjustment is a pain, but when you get it where you want it, the hop does a good job of holding the setting.

 

On a side note, to help sooth the loss of my KJW M4, I bought a used SCAR and 9-magazines at a great price...smile.gif

It's metal in all the parts you'd expect on an airsoft M4

 

Not in this new age of 'Full Metal' airsoft guns it's not.

 

Also, I found it to be very light, and I wasn't too sure on the finish.
