Hey ChupacabraOutdoor, I took some inspiration from your thumbnails and made my own style. Took YouTube "safe frames" into consideration and the blocked off areas etc. Also looked at how thumbnails are presented on various platforms, and from that concluded that your graphics is way too small and thin, although very sexy in forum posts :D 

 

Came up with this :-D

I made a video about how the Tanaka-system shells working in my PPS XM26 with green gas.

I made a debriefing in the end of this video to let see which shell how worked.

Here's my gameplay montage from OP Stonebreaker in South Carolina this past weekend. Warning: copious amounts of adult language and reckless violence.

Looking forward to the video. I used your WE/TM G19 disassembly/assembly video this morning and finally re-built my KJW G23 into a G19 using Guarder Frame, steel slide, stainless barrel, trigger, guide rod, sights, rail mount, nozzle housing and rear chassis set. Your video certainly made the effort much easier and enjoyable. I'm pretty pleased with the outcome.

 

A couple of things I'd personally like to see guarder make is a stainless steel rail mount and rear housing set. I noticed there is a stainless trigger bar available and have placed an order. I think the look of interior stainless metal parts against the matt finish of the guarder frame would make a nice contrast. Its a "looks thing" for me.

 

Was worried about steel slide and number of shots I'd be losing in a gas fill, but when I used a standard KJW G23 magazine, I was able to get 37 shots that had the power to lock back the slide and then a further 7 which would not. Not too bad.

 

Thanks again for what you guys do and how you explain the process for those of us who are just getting in the art of serious rebuilding.

Thanks man. That's the kind of feedback that brings a smile to my face and makes me want to record new videos :D

 

Here's the re-edited video!

This should make you laugh, I had the same issue with the extractor and I was considering removing paint on the edges with emery cloth. But I decided a tight press fit is what it was supposed to be, so i pushed it in by hand as far as it would go and used a "wooden chop stick" (yes, a Chinese chop stick) and a wooden mallet and drove that sucker in. Was waiting for the dreaded sound of a snap and part breakage but it worked just fine and was flush to the inside of the slide.

 

I'd also like to know why, in the Good Lords name, they have not built a nozzle housing with simple nub that would put enough friction on the spring that you would be able to easily install the housing into the slide on the first try without the spring falling out of position. Drives me nuts.

 

Question, how much better are the Guarder G19 magazines as compared to the KJW's? In all the years that I've had the KJW G23's, I've never had a magazine issue. I've also heard that someone makes a G19 magazine that actually has a thin polymer body shell that covers the internal gas cylinder. Have not been able to find one listed, but would be interesting if it exists and works (WE has a G17 style magazine like this but I'm not sure how good they really are).

 

Keep those videos comming!

Well, glad I am not the only one that can't figure out how to fit the dang extractor :o

 

Problem for me was when I wedged it in there it was driven into the slide making it impossible for me to install the BBU. :(

 

That nub idea sounds pretty neat actually! I get what you mean. On mine the spring didn't fall out so I had no issues. You could also stretch the spring a bit to make it friction fit. Or and old trick I saw on WGC is to put a piece of clear take on top of the spring to keep it in while assembling.

Or you put the BBU on the edge of a table with top side up and set the slide on top of the BBU, that also works.

 

I actually don't know how the magazines compare. I got the Guarder ones, well because I am doing a Guarder build. And they are TM spec, which my build is, and they look nicer externally as well :-D

 

Here is the Guarder extractor installation reference image that unfortunately didn't make it in the video:
