Tokyo Marui 18C Gas Issues

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,


i'm fairly new to the airsoft sport and i have a problem with my newly bought Tokyo Marui Glock 18C GBB. The issue is when i fire rounds sometimes the gas does not trigger in the amount to fire the bb fast enough for the gun to cock back itself i.e. to put the hammer in the right position for the next shot.


The weird thing is that it seems at random. After several manual cock-backs it returns to normal but not every time. The gun is fairly new and this started happening when i used lube for the gun (little initial maintenance).


Do you guys have any idea what's going on? Is that a standard thing (hope not)?


Thanks for the support in advance.

I did some Internets research and it seems that that's not a uncommon problem.


The term for this issue is called "light strikes" as shown on the youtube video


The tread discussion is located http://ncairsoft.org/forum/showthread.php?16602-Help-fixing-Tokyo-Marui-G18c here for anyone having the same problems. The problem is that i don't really know how to replace the air-nozzle (or check it) since my manual is in japanese.
