I have owned this KWA NS2 M11A1 for about a year now and I was very happy with it...

Today, I was just test firing my gun with my chronograph and adjusting the hop up. For some reason, bb's would have problems feeding. I ejected the magazines, applied some silicone spray, and tried again.

The gun literally exploded in my hands as soon as I pulled the trigger. There was a loud bang and the top plastic cover came flying off which scared the crap out of me. Luckily I was wearing eye pro and I was unharmed.

Does anyone have any idea of what could have caused this problem? I think that I have taken good care of this gun. I have never inserted a mag without first cocking the gun, as the manual warns. I usually gave it a quick shot of silicone spray after a day of airsoft.

Well, silicon spray is EXTREMELY bad for your gun. I would recommend never using it again in any gun. Use thick, liquid silicon oil. But, I have no idea why it would explode. I have had several cylinders crack in half, but never anything that strong. Although I run the steel kit. BTW, a good fix for that broken frame, would be the G&P steel kit.

Where are the pins that secure the top half to the bottom frame?

I'm confused, what pins? There are none back there. There is 3 pins, all on the bottom, forward of the trigger.

Is there any damage to the bolt and its parts?

I hate to refer you away, but look up a disassembly of the KWA M11 on YouTube. It's too complicated to explain through text and video is easier to follow. After you get the bolt out, inspect it closely and see if anything is obviously broken or not.

No problem. Thanks for the referral. I'll get back once I disassemble and inspect everything.
