What gas?

Recommended Posts

Just got this Well MP5K/g55 from a friend. However, what gas does it use? He doesn't know, and google just says gas.. Is it red or green or what?

 

Also, how do I stop the leaking? All 3 mags it came with leaks. Can I just buy some mags from other manurfactors? Would they still work?

Google is your friend for this one. There are some really good guides out there for it.

The well magazine is very well know as being built by blind fish. Almost nothing in it was made the right size.

 

They can leak from 3 places, the top, the middle and the bottom and repairs range from simply a ptfe fest or soaking the O ring to epoxy and shortening the magazine altogether.

 

It's a fair bit of DIY to make them almost barely usable. Hence why they are so cheeep.

 

Gas wise you are going to lose most if it anyway so don't go filling with any fancy stuff just yet till you fix the magazine leaks. Just normal abbey green gas will be fine for now.

You could run a few mags of abbey maintenance gas fist, just to lube the mag and gun see if that help.

So if I bought mags from other manurfactors? Any guarantee that they will work/fit?

No other manufacturers make mags that will work.

As ED says no other brand will work, because it's a direct clone of the maruzen (sp?).

If you can find their mags then you may have some luck. However they are out of production and most of the internet can't find any so will prolly end up costing you more than the gun did, and there is no guaantee they still won't leak, as they are the same design.

 

It all comes down to a flawed design, copied and then built very badly. Hence the low price.

Does there exist a video or some pics showing how you fix it? Tried some text guides, and I'm lost. No idea what to do, and the gun sounds like it's useless now... I'm thinking airsoft is not worth it. Seems like nothing works. No matter what it is.

You've just had a bad experience with a gas gun, that's all....gas weapons are high maintenance, so they're not recommended for new players. you're better off staying on the airsoft scene with renting etc until you have enough to buy a decent AEG :)

I'm not. Just a way to say that guns usually don't come perfectly. Always something wrong.

Anyway, if you come up with an easy step to step guide on how to fix those mags, please tell. I'm no pro at all. So don't use fancy words ;)

its probably gonna depend on why/where from the mag is leaking. in theory gas mags should be of similar design just differing shapes and sizes for the guns. problem being if its not well made itll take more to fix...
