You'll have to replace it soon or it will soon completely falls off.  If it's only a fine crack then there may still be a fix able... search somewhere on this forum.  I know someone wrote a thread on how to weld it together.

Reality happened. Even the "worlds strongest" gearbox is susceptible to cracks or failure. Regardless of great manufacturing and our diligence and care taking, airsoft guns are fragile. KWA makes a great gearbox, but even it is at the mercy of the operator and it's environment. Treat your KWA well, maintain it, and if anything does go wrong contact KWA's great customer service and they will help you resolve it.

Read the previous post... I believe he wasnt talking about the 2Gx thats why Allizard suggested getting the 2gx. And yes, even the older KWA gearboxes are better than most stock gearboxes. :)

i dont remember the guys name but it sounded like he had a british accent.


is this wrong info? i noticed they didnt have any on the store page so i called up and he said they arent pictured yet but they did have them for purchase for $160 and i could pay over the phone. i hope this wasnt a scam or something, glad i didnt order it yet if it was.

well, i swear i called there and asked him questions about my purchase and if it had the new upgrades in it. I was transfered to that department by the receptionist. Then if there isnt a guys with any kind of sounding accent there, he must have been eating something while talking on the phone.

Actually, I do not believe it was ever officially in the Pro-Shop for sale. Stay tuned. :gun:

I just called and the receptionist helped me out.  I was curious about how much new gearboxes were (in case I wanted a new one, or decided to upgrade to the 2G) and she said they are available for phone order for $90.00 new.  They aren't listed in the pro-shop, but if you call they'll give you a part number and you should be good to go.
