The other day I noticed the folding grip wasn't locking in place properly, upon inspection I noticed the plastic part that the pin goes in to hold the grip was cracked in two. Seeing as how this is made directly into the body of the gun (as its a one piece receiver) the solution seems to get a receiver replacement :( This sucks because KWA doesn't offer any replacement parts on their pro shop at the moment. The only other thing i could think of is to take the folding grip off sand the piece down to its flush with the body and maybe drill holes for a bottom rail to screw into, then attach a grip of my choice. Any suggestions?


Here are some pix i took with my iPhone (sorry for the crap quality)

Just a thought. If the break is a clean one, you may be able to reattach it with the proper epoxy until the parts are available. I would use a 2 part super epoxy. If properly glued it will hold over 1500 PSI.

I know a guy that actually hacked his vert grip on purpose.  After removing the rails and stuff, and installing a hacked top rail, it was actually very much lighter, and very much handier.

Yikes dude, you're on a roll.

Was your S-Tactical a 2GX varient?  If not, it's a blessing in disguise ;)

I've been mozing around, there should be a solution to that vert grip somewhere on the horizon
