WE MSK Review

Recommended Posts

I have a friend who had the odd cycle issue: weak blowback and BB shot, then strong blowback and no BB, repeat ad nauseam.

 

The fix turned out to be replacing the flute valve with a Ready fighter vfc MP5 valve. They come in a pack of three differing output sizes and have the added benefit of allowing you to adjust fps from 0.9-1.8j. Pretty cheap too.

These are the ones I'm talking about, btw

They fit the MSK beautifully, but not all WE GBB rifles. The AK, for example, won't work with these. The TM MP7 does, though.

I had a cycling issue that developed over time, the oil that was used internally combined with crud & the paintwork that stripped off the inside gunked up the hammer and made it stick to the bottom of the bolt carrier causing it to stick when returning, good clean & re-oil sorted it, also using a section of an old AEG spring as a semi-short stroke/forward assist buffer stops it happening even when gunked up...

The hammer does seem to put a lot of pressure up onto the bolt carrier, it seems like it could lose a large section of it and still lock down reliably... Might experiment a little when I know I've got a spare part on standby...

No need to lube the trigger parts in WE guns, they fill up with and the extra friction on the valve knocker spring can slow it down and result in strange like FA on semi.

Only section I re-oiled was the section of the hammer that rubs the bottom of the bolt carrier, that's where the problem is. I do know there are issues with over lubing!

I bought this beauty the other week. Got it from AST so the pmag was included. What issues can I expect from usage as at the moment it's a decoration on my wall.

That was one of the reasons I sold mine. I seriously had to switch grips and use two fingers to move that *fruitcage* tiny selector.

It was also too big and heavy, and too redundant to my M4, but that's another story.

The MSK PMags are noted as not fitting the 416. Is it just a case of a little filing to get them to fit (like real PMags)?

 

Want a bunch of PMags or ideally EMags (don't see that happening though) for the 416 I'm looking to buy and the only other WE PMags I can find in any quantity appear to be at a Canadian store.

I didn't realise they were doing it with new 416s. I know that originally H&K were providing upper kits to refit M4s.

 

I had actually considered running a 416 like that anyway. Just don't know what I'd then do with the 416 lower, maybe keep it as a spare.

Oooh. Now are there completely blank (including selector indicator) lowers available for WE's? Because I like that a lot.

 

Thanks for sharing.

How are these holding up? Will they fail after 200 shots? lol.

 

Assuming CO2 will poop it?

 

I ordered one from Airsplat, as it's 50% off, so about 200 USD right now for the full length.

Have one in the shop right now with a busted trigger pack, and not the first one, so steel trigger parts seems like a worthy upgrade, other then that seems solid.

Been running mine for a year of decent use and only the nozzle has failed (that was on the last game I played) having a little bit of a glitch with full auto (it will sometimes just stop) but as I'm pretty solidly semi only it hasn't been enough of a hindrance to investigate...

Just realised I don't think this has been mentioned so far...(if it has I apologise)

The MSK uses the new type hop rubber & barrel, externally the barrel and hop rubber are the same, but it looks like there has been about 2-3mm of hop window removed and added into the hop rubber in the form of some kind of restrictor band... Basic upshot is really short hop window and if you want an after market hop rubber you need to budget for a barrel too...
