After about 6 mags through my brand new MP7 the gas cylinder exploded and one of the springs inside the bolt went all whacko (using propane and silidone lube. same thing I have used in my glock with no problems). Where can I purchase a replacement gas nozzle/cylinder. Also what size allen wrench do I need to disassemble the bolt Thanks

Uh dude.... are you sure your MP7 isn't a KSC cause KSC MP7s aren't reinforced to take green gas like the Kwa MP7 (i know you used propane) so thats probably why it exploded... :blink:

Hey Goblin, he probably has a KSC MP7 cause they are already released and so are the KSC KP45 matches and other gas guns.  Except the Kwa gas guns are all reinforced to take green gas as the KSC models are made for Japan and only use 134a gas which is less as strong cause of their FPS/Joules laws over there.

Yeah you'll have to wait until the Kwa MP7 is realeased which is like this month until you can buy replacement parts in the Pro Shop.  Sorry man

That's right, our specifications are a bit higher than the Japan-marketed versions through KSC.  Expect ours to appear any time now... any time now... any time now... *looks at watch*

:wacko:  *sigh* I guess I'll find out when you guys do...

Umarex MP7 is rated for green gas with different internal than KSC MP7.  Even though both companies product are OEM by KWA.  ;)

I don't see how Airsoft Titan can have KWA versions in stock when we have not even receive them yet.

Airsoft Titan's site claims to have stock. They don't.  My order is with them, all paid up and ready to go.

Hey uh Radix can you confirm if the guns have made it through customs yet? and if i can get an ETA?  I hope it will be here by next week on my doorstep cause I have a huge game and I have been waiting for this gun for like 3 months already which I don't mind but am kinda getting a little gittery.  :( Don't get me wrong you guys are doing great.

I'm just going to quote Radix.  This is our standard reply.

US Customs is examining "all" airsoft related cargo because of recent copyright infringement cases involving other manufactures. This "long" wait is just part of the examination procedure. Be patient, they will be released soon.

I got some KSC cylinders from Dentrinity for $17.50 each.  Very interested to see the KWAs when they become available.  Did any come over with the MP7s?  If so, shouldn't they be out of customs by now? :)
