I purchased my kwa km4 ros 2gx sometime january or febuary 2012.  I have been hearing that some of the latest kwa 2gx sr series guns had some 3Gx parts specifically gears.  Would mine have any?  What are some dates where these were added?

Not really sure on the specific dates when these were added but if you bought your gun this year there is a very good chance that you are running the latest 3GX gears.  I have worked on some M4A1's that were purchased last year and they had at least the 3GX sector gear.  As long as your guns isn't something the reseller had in stock for a year I would say your chances are very good.

When is the 3GX supposed to be fully implemented into the guns?

I believe the 3GX gears are already popping up in all the KWA AEG's right now.

Is there any possibility my SR10 could have the 3GX gears?  I got it in February.

The new gears are balanced.  I have seen several sets now in KWA's.  They seem to be working well...I haven't seen a broken 3GX yet.

Yes, If you see the 3GX sector gear it has a "C" shaped groove going around the inner diameter.  The 2GX sector gears have holes drilled.  Both approaches are used to remove material to lighten and balance the gear.

The spur and bevel are better balanced as well.  Here is the pic of a gear set out of an M4A1 that was purchased last year.  It had the 3GX sector gear in it.

Did you buy it in New Zealand? Or from a Asian retailer?
