I'll try to keep this as short as possible. I'm just going to post this here for anyone looking to buy this gun, as I wouldn't recommend it. I've had this gun for three days, and the magazine already broke in two ways. I've probably shot ~400 rounds through the gun. The magazine BB follower's bolt catch broke off today after firing through the mag. Also, the magazine actually deformed (bent outward) right under the feed lip and no longer fits into the gun easily. Also, follower literally rubs against the plastic of the gun when the mag is inserted into the gun, and prevents the follower from moving up the entire magazine (causing it not to feed). The magazine was lubed and the gun itself works beautifully thus far- but man, this magazine is absolutely an atrocious piece of crap that ruins the entire experience. I'm aware that i can buy parts from the KWA store, but if they are going to fail this often from normal use, it's not worth it to me.
I do believe I was treating the gun and mag perfectly fine. I lightly applied lube to the mag when I obtained it, I always release excess gas in the mag in pulses and not all at once to ensure that it doesn't freeze up, I put green gas into the mag in 2 second bursts (again so the mag doesn't freeze up), and I was even careful to make sure that the BBs stack correctly when loading the mag. Please tell me when I have done wrong, if anything.
Also feel free to recommend similar, more reliable guns.
