  1. The nozzle and hop up are proprietary in relation to one another, therefor if you replaced one you would also have to replace the other (It's a split hop up though). I believe the tappet plate is TM compatible too. I have found that the KWA gearbox is very similar to the JG gearbox though, the KWA gearbox fits into my JG, but not the other way around since the JG gearboxes have a small tab at the bottom that would have to be shaved off. I'm just going to end it here with the KWA nonsense.
  2. Have you personally tried putting different internals into a KWA? Over the internet a lot of misinformation is passed on and a lot of the stuff regarding KWA is untrue. I can tell you the 2GX gearbox isn't much different than any other, there's no "magic" surrounding its parts. The whole rumor that the KWA gearboxes work best with only their parts is just BS spread around by the guys at the KWA forums. If something breaks you are not screwed. That being said, a KWA would not be my first choice, but it definitely wouldn't be my last.
  3. The worst part is that it says "5 available/ 10 sold"
  4. Reusing BBs is a pretty controversial idea. I do remember reading a thread about that issue a while ago, and some people made pretty good points. If you think about it loading BBs into a mid cap magazine puts quite a bit of pressure on the BBs, probably more pressure than if you shot at something relatively soft. If you think that building a BB trap is a good idea then go ahead. That being said, you should only use high quality non-biodegradable BBs. Anther thing is that you should not make the whole box out of plywood; the point of the mesh backing is so the BBs decelerate slowly rather than hitting a hard board and risk the chance of shattering.
  5. I personally don't like systema guns, I feel that the main reason people get them is because they buy into the whole idea that systema guns are the best for milsim. Once a crowd of super-tacticool folks with their sytemas comes around then others follow. I have a friend that bought a used systema. The motor had been sent to a company in the UK for work, and after two years of "upgrading" he said that the lonex motors still outpreformed the $300 systema motor.
  6. The problem isn't social class, its stupid people doing stupid things.
  7. I haven't opened my marui yet, but I have opened the cheaper clone ones that are almost identical. First off, I presume that you have tried multiple shells. Most UTG shells work fine but occasionally some don't, also try filling them half way and it might feed better (less pressure on the bbs and parts). Have you also checked the hop up chamber thing? Make sure that isn't cracked. In order to fix the problem you will need the right screwdriver to open the gearbox (duh!) so I would just go out and get one. Once you open the gearbox using this nifty guide and the picture below, it should be pretty easy to see whats wrong. Replacement parts are quite hard to come by for the marui m3s. On UN Company they do have parts, but a lot are out of stock. Alternatively you could just buy a used UTG tri-shot and scavenge parts for that.
  8. Looks like I'm going with a Lonex Red piston then; I have a fairly good budget but don't feel like overpaying if its not necessary. Anyone that has a KWA, what bucking do you use? I know the 2GX is horrible, but finding replacements is difficult. the KWA hop up is designed to take thin buckings, so far the bravo and JG bucking don't seem to fit. Anyone able to fit a Promethius soft bucking in? I don't really want to buy a $20 bucking only to have it be too tight.
  9. Than you verman for the response. I did google something like "Bravo blue vs red piston" but fore some reason the search results did not turn up as informative and no one could give a clear answer. Another question though was how is the G&P piston? its a bit cheaper and some people swear buy them, but does anyone have both the bravo and G&P and could say which they prefer?
  10. So I was putting the motor back into the grip of my SR7 and when I plugged in the battery and pulled the trigger the motor wouldn't turn the gear. It turns out piston head came loose in the gearbox and low and behold the piston broke. In the process of getting gearbox out the anti reversal latch got bent up. First off I would like to say that I'm not the best with tech work and internals; I can open up a gearbox and put it back together just fine, but when we start getting into AOE and shimming I don't have a clue how to do that all. I'll probably get a tech to do the work (shimming, correcting AOE, re-grease, and installing all the parts) But I'd rather buy the parts and give it to them, than them just choosing some random stock parts that are there. For the piston I'm thinking of getting a G&P white piston, a bravo/lonex red piston, a bravo/lonex blue piston, or if I have the money a supercore piston. What is the difference between the bravo red and blue piston, the red is about $10 more expensive, but is it really much better than the blue? Also how does the G&P piston compare? I also need a new spring for the gun. I was originally hoping to get about 420 max so I bought a bravo sp120 spring thinking that it would put me just around 400. When I brought it to the chrono station it was getting 447! In the gun is a Madbull 6.03 407mm barrel and a modify polycarb ported piston head, but I don't think that would make the gun shoot 450. Do you think a m100 would put the gun somewhere around 350 just to be on the safe side? Once the gearbox is back together I don't plan on opening it for a while? I'm also not trying to run a crazy fps/rof fire setup. I have a jg blue motor and its getting no more than 17 rps. Thanks for all the help, all feedback is appreciated
  11. Golden Ball BB's are alright, but they have horrible quality control. I once found 2 BB's stuck together without being properly separated from the mold, it was kind of like a stick of plastic that the BB's should have been separated from. It just makes me wonder what other types of minor flaws they let through...
  12. It doesn't really fit your requirements but it answers your question; Shotguns! I personally enjoy them much more than aeg's. They are a challenge to use (only short range, limited firepower), but that's most of the fun.
  13. Wouldn't the hairs on the couch (assuming it's a couch) get stuck to the finish?
  14. Do you live in the US? if so you could use duster gas, its the keyboard cleaning stuff: DUST OFF! It is similar to the actual airsoft brand duster gas, but doesn't have lubricants added in. In order to use it you will need an adapter. This stuff is pretty common in America, but I am unaware if it is easily accessible in Europe and other countries.
  15. I enjoyed the magazine too. the English translations were done very well.
