So I have owned the mp7 for a over half a year now, and the only issue it has decided to plague me with is a swollen hopup bucking (which is now fixed).

Now a new problem has developed; the outer frame has cracked by the upper pin in the rear of the gun.

I haven't read to much on the subject of cracked frames developing on the mp7, so I would like to know; will it happen eventually on the replacement frames, or are the newer frames more durable.

And another thing as well, would anyone like to tell me how much a replacement outer frame from kwa cost? Would be great to know!

Thanks!

While I can not tell you how much a new frame will cost,  I can tell you that I have never seen a cracked frame on a MP7.  That's not to say that it will no happen.  I am on saying is is very, very uncommon.

I noticed the last time I serviced my mp7 that I had a crack in the the boy across the top rear body pin. It's hanging on by about a 1/4".  I contacted kwa and I was told they no longer carry the body.  Not what I wanted to hear on something I bought a few months ago.

So I guess this our first casualty in the Umarex switchover of control.

I've seen it a couple times, but was caused by improper pin insertion. Usually trying to force the pin in when things aren't aligned.
It shouldn't keep happening. Not sure who told you guys we don't have frames, but I'm almost positive that we do. I was out of stock awhile back but received more quite some time ago.
Price on the frame is $80. Give us a call tomorrow and we should be able to get you one.

Crack damage is not covered under warranty as it is usually user error from dropping it or impropper assembly/disassembly. This type of damage is not a manufacture defect.
Yes, there are cases where it could be so we would have to see it in our Service Center in order to determine the cause.
If you have an Umarex distributed item, non US serial number range, then you can send it to Umarex and they will determine warranty on their side.
