I just got a brand new KWA M11A1 NS2 and I'm having a small problem with it;

When you fire the bolt moves forward and there's a small tube like thing with a small plastic stub that oinks the bb out of the magazine and loads it into the chamber, the gas coming out the tube then propelling the bb through the barrell.

The problem I'm having is that the little stub is getting stuck ontop of the mag, thus not allowing a bb to get up and loaded out of the mag.
I have to either pull it back with my finger or pull the bolt back a-bit more.

My guess is that it's either I'm not putting enough green gas in, it's new and still needs to wear in or that the temperatures are too cold.

I have included a picture and circled the offending piece so you can get a better understanding of what I'm talking about.

P.S how long should I be loading the gas in for?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks.

Well thanks for all your help guys.
34 views and the only replies being from me bumping the topic.

I thought the official KWA forums would be quite helpful...

I was obviously wrong.

Its a forum, don't expect instant replies. I would love to help but I know very little about the M11 by KWA. You just posted this yesterday so be a little patient.

Thanks for atleast wanting to help me.

I'm only getting frustrated because I'm apart of quite a few forums and the longest I've had to wait to get atleast a handful of replies is an hour or two and seeing as with this forum you can see how many people viewed your topic I'm just surprised I haven't got any replies.

Welcome to the forum.  I wouldn't equate the quantity of answers with the quality. I'm guessing that those who read your post would have replied if they had the answer.  There are staff and forum members that are well suited to give you the answer and once they see the post it should come.  

My first guess is that the cylinder needs replacing.  

How many rounds have you put though the gun?

sometimes it's just one member viewing the topic and reloading the page, sometimes that contributes to updating the counter.

Also doesn't help that timezone changes puts you at about 7:00 in the morning, and reposting exactly two hours later.  Some of us are still in bed on our day off.  :innocent:


So, lets get you some advice going.

Firstly, have you tried cocking the bolt all the way back? the position you pictured shows the nozzle(#4 on the KWA diagram) not clearing the magazine channel.  This will not allow proper loading.

Secondly, do you cock the bolt prior to loading in the magazine?  The bolt must be open to properly accept the magazine.

Yes, I always cock back the bolt before loading the magazine and it looks like that in the picture because I set it up for the photo so that I could show the part that was catching.

I recently took it apart and the cylinder is as dry as a bone and I'm going to try and get some silicone oil for it as I didn't get any with the gun >.<

When this problem first started I'd put about 100-150 through it.

This happens with my gun, although I have never fired it, i received it with no clip..the bolt would catch on the clip just like in the picture. Although the clip was not a official KWA brand clip. So IDK. I could get the bolt pin to line up with the clip by lowering the clip down, then the gun would actually hit and push a bb into the barrell, no gas though.

the clip i bought:
