My KWA ATP spring guide fell apart and broke while I was cleaning it, can someone redirect me in buying a new one that won't void my warranty? I bought this gun recently and it seems like I got one of the old plastic spring guides not the metal ones. Would the Hurricane Recoil Spring Assembly For KSC/KWA M17 M18 M34 work in it with the normal stock internals?

Yes, that  one will work fine.  However, if the gun is under warranty and purchased from an official KWA reseller, KWA will replace it so long as you haven't voided your warranty.

Also, I have merged this topic and deleted your double post.

Contact KWA.  If the gun is still under warranty they should provide a replacement.

Would I need to add a high flow valve to my gun because of the stronger spring?

You shouldn't need to.  However, if you have recoil issues once installed you can disassemble it and use the KWA spring from the original guide.  Note: Heavier recoil springs are more apt to give you cycling issues in the cold weather...not so much when it's warm outside.

Sorry I'm kinda new to this, but how would I switch out the springs from the guides. Thanks again!

Switching the spring is easy.  The plastic guide is already broken so you have that spring in hand....right?  If it wasn't you would push out the small pin that retains the end of the spring guide. See here for parts diagram: http://store.kwausa....5960616411.aspx

Now, on the Hurricane spring guide my guess is that the brass end, see your original link, unscrews.  This allows you to disassemble and swap springs.

So, start with the Hurricane guide, if it doesn't function correctly swap the springs.
