  1. Standard CM16, photo taken last year. Loved it from the get go (1st airsoft rifle after many years of wait) but holy hell has it had its problems with the barrel constantly falling off, accuracy being wild and now the hop ups buggered. Still love it to bits.
  2. Had some issues with the cm16 raider today in that the .25 bbs were drooping to the floor after only 10m with the hop. Up both fully on and off. Adjusting the hop up does not seem to do anything. Any ideas on what I could do?

      Yeah for sure there are quite a few things that could potentially go wrong with reassembly.

       

      - ensure the hop rubber (the sleeve) is fitted correctly, with the protruding line seated in the long groove in the barrel and the protruding nub on the opposite side seated inside the little window in the barrel.

       

      - It is possible to push the barrel with the rubber installed both too far into the hop unit thereby smushing up the feed lips and distorting them or equally not pushing the barrel and feed lips in far enough, either scenario will almost certainly run you into feeding problems. 

      (sometimes with a very tight setup a small amount of silicon oil can help - just don't get it any where near the hop window)

       

      - ensure the plastic barrel clip is engaged properly, with the two recesses fitting correctly into the grooves on the barrel - some times these can go on and you'll think its in place, but in fact the two recesses are just resting on the edge of the groove - this can cause the barrel itself to move, thereby moving the cut out window away from the hop up arm rendering the mechanism useless.

       

      - custom hop nubs (especially flat nubs) can be too wide for your existing hop window and will require an equal amount of light sanding on each side until it comfortably fits into the window - the test is to press the nub down and see if it springs back up under the elastic force of the rubber without getting lodged. 

      This could cause you an inability to push the nub down or it could cause the nub to become stuck, so that when you raise the hop arm the nub remains in its position in the hop window.

       

      - Also do check the condition of all the hop mechanism dials and arms, It's not that common but some times these little pieces can become a bit minced.

       

      Defintley, take the barrel and hop out, dissemble, then  reassemble checking at every stage.. to be safe, do clean the rubber on the inside of the window. You can see if the mechanism is working in its most basic form by looking down the barrel and adjusting the wheel while observing the nub lowering and rising.

       

      Hope this helps dude!

      Sounds like an issue I had when I hadn't reinstalled the nub correctly.

    4. Zarrin

      Zarrin

      @Cr0-Magnonoh yeah, that's another one - make sure the nub is engaged properly with the hop unit arm, if it doesn't lodge into the arm it may be displaced to the front or rear of the arm most likely resulting in a zero hop scenario. 

      Some people like to super glue the nub onto the arm, which is fine for a standard nub, though not necessarily for a flat nub otherwise you may get a sloped hop surface - the tiniest blob of silicon gel can help keep it in place for installation. 

  3. Apologies for bringing up an oldish thread but I've run down my KJW m9 mags to empty about 3 times now due to them not actually getting through all of the mag before running out of gas (1 mag did, 1 mag made 19/22 and one only about 14/22). Doesn't seem to have any leakage issues but I am now keeping them in storage with a small amount of gas in as I didn't realise you were supposed to before hand.
  4. For some reason I dont appear to be able to contact sellers about things on the classifieds sub section

      It's the forums way of telling you that you don't need any more kit 👍

    2. JamesAirsofterAgent

      JamesAirsofterAgent

      Impossible, you can never have too much

  5. Only seem to be getting about 3/4s a mag off before gas seems to not be powerful enough to fire every shot and not enough power to move the slide back. Is this because I was doing it in such a cold environment using green gas? (probably around 5C, evening time yesterday). ASG M9 for reference

      Go straight for the black gas.

      JamesAirsofterAgent

      To those saying should've gone CO2, I was under the impression the ASG (fire support seemed to put KJW in brackets after it) could fire CO2 due to the blue part (I am unsure of the name), hell they sell co2 mags for it https://www.patrolbase.co.uk/asg-m9-25rnd-co2-magazine.

       

      If I am wrong here please say as I don't want to break it. Thanks for the help all, and will definitely look at gas alternatives and finding the hand warmers that have been floating around the house. Nice to know that it isnt the pistol being a lemon.

      Kjw co2 mags are crap ime break in 2min, expensive to keep replacing parts and even then sometimes unfixable. I wouldn't bother. 

  6. KJW M9 mag has arrived but upon inspection, there is a small but noticeable gap between the bottom plate and the start of the outer casing. Should I sent it back immediately or wait until the pistol arrives to test? I've heard of people receiving  faulty mags like this with gas leak issues but not sure if I'm just being paranoid.

      I'd see what they have to say.  If it's a new batch and they're all like that, I'd want a refund and get one somewhere else I think.  To me, that mag is simply an unknown.

    3. JamesAirsofterAgent

      JamesAirsofterAgent

      Yeah, I've sent an email asking to withdraw from the agreement, send back and receive a refund. Not having much luck with this m9 as tg still haven't come back about whether I'm getting a refund on an order they can't complete

      I'll probably just get the extra mag from Fire Support when I order the actual pistol from there.

      Ive just recieved this email from the store: 

      "

      I have had a look at the rest of the M9 magazines from KJW that we have in stock. It seems like they have changed their design of magazine as of the last batch that we have received. 
       
      Since then I have confirmed with KJW that these are indeed their new design magazines for the KJW / ASG M9 series. 
       
      If you are not happy with the item then we can accept the item back for a full refund provided the item is returned in pristine condition with its original packaging and any accessories it came with. 
       
      I will make sure our website images get updated within the next 24-72 hours!! Thanks for letting us know!!

      Regards"
       
      hmm
  7. Is it better to buy from Fire Support instead of Taiwan Gun, if price isn't an issue? With regards to customer support, helping if the gun develops a fault over time etc. Thinking of refunding the TG order and getting it from FS instead, especially if it's a long time until its back in stock.

      JamesAirsofterAgent

      Ah thanks so much guys, I'll cancel my TG order in that case and get it from FS. 

       

    3. Steveocee

      Steveocee

      Echo'ing the above. TaiwanGun is great for "cheap" stuff but if Firesupport are showing it and the price gap isn't huge you're far better off buying from them. The aftersales support is brilliant and you're putting back in to a well established UK airsoft business.

  8. Ordered an m9 from Taiwan gun, paid and processed all fine. Went ahead and bought everything else I needed from amazon and a couple of other stores (gas, mags, maintanence stuff etc). Now I've just got an email saying: "hello
    Im writing in refercne of your order
    We dont have in stok beretta  mg  from your order :(
    What we do??
    marek" 

     

    Why would they let me buy it, if it was out of stock!?!? At a loss. Should I just wait until they next come in stock, although they said that would be new year earliest . ffs

    1. Rogerborg

      Rogerborg

      This shouldn't even be a question, they should have refunded you in full immediately.  I'd get that money back where it belongs, in your pocket.

    2. JamesAirsofterAgent

      JamesAirsofterAgent

      Ah right thanks will email asap

  9. Just to check is this stuff OK for maintaining a Gbbp

    I have been told silicon oil only for moving parts and lithium grease for where metal meets metal?

      Don't use silicone oil for metal on metal in a GBBR.

      Ah right yeah, found this one for mega cheao https://www.taiwangun.com/en/co2-i-lubricants/silicone-oil-60ml-w-applicator-tip-leda?from=related&campaign-id=6

       

      Where abouts should I put the silicone oil in the m9? Different videos say contradictory things.

      Silicone oil on the piston

      and a little to lube any o-rings

  10. Looking at getting my first GBBP as it seems I'll have to stay where I am a little longer. I've been wanting an m9 since 2013, and luckily was pointed away from the LS M9, and am informed the KJW M9 is a fairly good choice and KJW have solid customer service. I just wanted to check a few things so I don't waste money: Firstly the Pistol: https://www.taiwangun.com/en/gas-4/m9-vertec-kjw Runs on gas and co2 depending on mag, most reviews recomend it although often point out better alternatives for a little more money unless youre hell bent on getting an m9. Mag leakage seems to be an issue for some as well as issues with misfiring, does anyone have any experience with how common these issues are? Gas From I understand green gas is the bog standard to use, while red and black are for colder temperatures respectively? I was probably going to get 3 of these due to the low price: https://www.taiwangun.com/en/gas/airsoft-green-gas-800ml-pro-tech-guns But would I be better off getting red and green due to hoping to play during the January - June time? Spare Mag: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00HGQ8L5C/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=A39G5YL4BIP51H&psc=1 Fairly expensive but that seems to be the trend with these mags. Holster: https://www.taiwangun.com/en/holsters/quick-draw-pistol-holster-with-locking-mechanism-for-m9-tan-cs?from=listing&campaign-id=20 or https://www.taiwangun.com/en/holsters/holster-w-drop-leg-platform-for-m9-series-black-cs?from=listing&campaign-id=20 Depending on feedback and pricing issues. The overall price for all of that comes to: £110.54 (Taiwan gun, inc shipping) £36.22 (Amazon spare mag inc shipping) Total: £146.76 which is just under the ideal max spend of £150 Thanks for reading, any advice and feedback would be heartily appreciated. James Edit: Maintenance wise, I was going to just follow these two websites advice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gH5eqgJAmDc&lis http://www.redwolfairsoft.com/redwolf/airsoft/ReviewDetail?reviewID=191

      JamesAirsofterAgent

      Ah nice thanks. The price on tg (£71)seems really good as well. About to check how customer service is on there with regard to helping fix issues to products. 

    3. rocketdogbert

      rocketdogbert

      KJW themselves are superb, reply to emails very fast, and not pricey, but you still have to get most spares from Taiwan, OEM and aftermarket

    4. JamesAirsofterAgent

      JamesAirsofterAgent

      That sounds great, value customer service highly. I'm a bit stuck looking for spare kjw m9 Green gas mags however, most seem to be sold out or in excess of £35 (Inc shipping). 

  12. Update: The front site post barrel part has now just completely fallen off. Update: Fixed, zero one gun tech was super helpful. All good now. phew
  13. Went to check the cm16 ready for a game next week, and to my horror the barell is loose. The barell with the front site attached slides in and out as shown by the pictures: As well as this, there is a small silver coloured tube which seems to have come out of place due to this: I have no idea what to do, but really hope it is not broken. The more I move the rifle, the more the silver tube moves and scrapes around so I am trying not to do that. I have not shot it to see if it still works for fear of causing more damage. Does anyone have an idea of what to do? Thanks.
  14. In order to get this:1267467749c9fda323fa12beb59f33f49d37288d

    To look like this:

    Was I supposed to order another piece or am I just too stupid to figure out how to set it up like that?

      However, the 'piece' you may not have ordered, is the actual plate carrier

    3. JamesAirsofterAgent

      JamesAirsofterAgent

      Ah right, because that photo was on the product description page I thought the centre piece was something that folded up from behind the mags and I was just unable to find it.

      Thanks both.
