Hello friends, first of all, sorry for my english.
I have problems in my GBB M9.
She is "heavy" and not move properly, so do not shoot.
I think that the defect appears to 1:53.
Help me!!!

1.  Your fingers in front of the muzzle :shocked:  drove me nearly crazy and it was hard to figure out why you were doing it!

2.  The pistol sounds dry.  Put a bit of lube on the slide and frame rails.

3.  I didn't see you put much gas in the magazine.  The gas is actually a liquid and the magazine and gas bottle should be vertical to get the liquid into the magazine.  Try charging the magazine vertically for 45 seconds, not 3, and see what happens.  45 seconds is probably excessive but you can't overfill the magazine.

4.  Keep your fingers away from the muzzle.  Yeah this 6mm BB, not 9mm NATO, but the safety protocol is the same.  And a BB at one inch range may cause more than a welt!

Ok Chuck, thanks for the help.
But she is already lubricated, I believe that even in excess.
There was so much gas in the mag, as you can see when unload the gas.
And whenever I handle the gun, I control it, to make sure it is empty.

What are you using for lube? A little RC car shock oil works well. When you manually pull back the slide, does the slide get caught at any point? It looks like it slides easy.

I'm thinking the problem is that sticker on your grips.

I'm using silicone spray, but I'm sure it is not lack of lubrication.
Have any defective part, but do not know what is.

Silicone spray is junk. Try cleaning out your gun and using 100% silicon or RC shock oil 25-30 weight. You don't need to saturate the inside of your gun. Just a few drops in the right places.

Also, look for unusual wear on the slide. If there is a problem, you should see one part wearing out more than the others.

Humor me and charge the magazine for 45 seconds with the mag and cylinder vertical.  ;)

If that doesn't work we can move on.

Silicone spray is the worst lubricant you can use in a KWA gun. The spray contains additives that can eat at away at rubber and plastic pieces. Try using 100% pure silicon oil. Also, I noticed your gun is incredibly lubed up. Try wiping a lot of the lube off, using a q-tip. You can then apply an extremely small amount of pure silicon oil 25 wt. Overdoing it will gum up your gun again.

I've seen the issue you're experiencing before. It has to do with magazine placement. The placement of the magazine, if it's too far up inside the magwell, will block your slide from returning all the way. Remove the magazine and rack the slide. If the slide still gums up at the last few mm of returning, then it's a lubrication issue. If the slide returns back normally, it's a magazine placement issue.

Is it possible to take a picture of the indents in the magazine that actuate with the magazine release notch? I'm trying to see if they are not rigidly cut, therefore not having a positive hold on the magazine.
