The piece of plastic that trips the dust cover open broke. I put it in a VFC plastic dust cover trip thing but it doesnt trip the dust cover open...will only a KWA one work?

That's a good question. I have never had to replace that particular part before so I don't have a clue.  You may want to hit up the proshop over the phone to see if they have that part in stock even though that part is not listed on the website.

You can use TM compatible parts for this in your KWA guns.
A couple of my KWA guns have TM Dust Cover Latches (the actual plastic piece)in them.

Notes:
- Be very careful when dis-assembling this part of the Dust Cover.
The spring that the actual latch sits in is very tiny and easy to lose.
- The TM compatible latches are a little longer, or bigger, than the KWA stock part.
When you close the Dust Cover, it may take a little bit more force than you are used to before it snaps in.

ok.
Now I am clear.
You should be able to switch that plastic piece over from a TM compatible Charging Handle.
Simply unscrew it where it mounts to the spare Charging Handle, then mount the new piece to your KWA Charging Handle.

I did this with a VFC one and it didnt work...are the KWA and TM shaped differently?

Good question.

I have switched this part out for a JG and into my KWA, but that was more than a year ago.
I can tell you it is working for me, but depending on what year the TM compatible part was made that you use, it is not impossible for a part to change a bit in its specs, so it may not work.

So, you might try that piece from a JG m4/m16 Charging Handle from a given year, and it not work, then try the same part from another JG m4/m16 Charging Handle  from a gun made in a different year, and it does work.
