  1. 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.

      Oh wow yeah I just looked up photos and its mega different. Hell its even different to the one on the store website. Dyou reckon its a good shout to send it back?

    3. hitmanNo2


      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.

    4. 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. 

  2. 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.

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


    3. 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.

    4. EvilMonkee


      Fire Support > TG. /thread

  3. 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??


    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


      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


      Ah right thanks will email asap

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

    Lucas Oil 10533 3676 https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B004X70LZA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_0NV2DbDDHMJC9

    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.

    3. JamesAirsofterAgent


      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.

    4. PT247


      Silicone oil on the piston

      and a little to lube any o-rings

  5. 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

    Anyone have bad/good experience with this pistol?

      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


      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


      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). 

  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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?

    2. SgtTalbert


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

    3. 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.

      It’s not particularly well worded on the advert..

  10. On Taiwan Gun, as I'm completing the order I've just seen these two points: 

    For UK and Ireland orders shipping is at the customer’s own risk.
    PLS write your UKARA number into order commentary.

    The first one has me worried, the second confused. I am not ordering a RIF, but a rig and pouches. Is it going to get destroyed by customs?


    Completely new to ordering from TG and utterly confused.

      No problem, hope the rig works out well

    3. JamesAirsofterAgent


      So do I, it'll be an improvement on the one I used for ages made out of my school lanyard, belt, cardboard and a ton of duct tape.

    4. AK47frizzle


      Taiwangun is in poland btw :)))) So no customs

  11. Any estimated as to how long this would take to arrive? https://www.taiwangun.com/en/chest-rigs/buckle-up-chest-rig-v2-coyote-8fields


    It says on the website 8-22 days, was hoping its closer to the 8...

    1. Rogerborg


      Should be closer to (or less than) 8, assuming that they send it out quickly.  They have a huge turnover of stock and can get a little tardy when they're rammed.

    2. JamesAirsofterAgent


      Ah right thanks for the response.

  12. What mags, if any, have people had problems with when used with the G&G CM16 Raider (L)?

  13. https://www.patrolbase.co.uk/battleaxe-ar-15-450-round-polymer-magazine?pv=9671 Anyone had any experience with these? Would they fit a G&G Raider CM16 ok?

    Seem too cheap to be true..

      Unless your gun is very ‘picky’ about mags then any M16/M4/STANAG listed mag should fit and function fine in it .

      Advise I’d give if you need to ask ‘does this mag work in gun XYZ ?” Is come at it from the other direction with “what mags if any has anyone had problems with in gun XYZ ?”👍

    4. JamesAirsofterAgent


      Thanks, thats a much better way of doing it.

  14. Just to check, it is this event this thread is on correct? https://www.airsoftfestival.com/ Friends and I are thinking of going before we all part for uni etc. From the looks of the replies ^^ it seems like its definitely worth the money, although I take it an extra battery and mags are needed? Thanks James
  15. What kind of ball park figure should I be selling a used (10+ skirmishes) but well looked after CM16 Raider L, with batteries, charger, mask etc? Batteries are 2600mAh, 7.4V Li - Po. Don't want to rip anyone off, or sell it for a steal as I need to get my finances in order before RT.

      I reckon around the £80-90 mark for a quick sale.

    3. StayOnTarget


      I think £120 with postage is fair 10 skirmishes is nothing I wouldn't class that as broken in even,you're basically selling a full starter kit minus mags🖖

      All the best with joining the Marines👍

    4. JamesAirsofterAgent


      Thanks all, and @Druid799, I knew those tasted a bit off...
