Hello, I recently purchased a new KWA SR10 gun and have a question about the warranty.
Most sites and forums (especially KWA forums) say you need to clean the bucking due to the amount of factory grease in the gun. Does cleaning the hop-up void the warranty? Is there a better way than to just strait shoot 5000 rounds through the gun?
Also when i turn to semi mode from safety the gun acts as if on safety. If i move it to auto then back to semi it fires just fine is this an issues that will be fixed with the break in?Anything else I should know or advice for having a brand new gun?
I'm somewhat petrified as to if something would be wrong with the gun or not. I know KWA is an incredible brand and have amazing guns
Thank you very much

I don't believe taking out the inner barrel and removing the bucking will void your warranty. It is necessary for cleaning. As far as the right way to clean the bucking, soak it in soapy water for a night and then wash it. Use a qtip to really get in there and clean it out.

As far as the trigger issue, that is not something that is supposed to happen. I'd say send it to kwa and have it repaired.

Yes. If you are not a tech, or are but just want KWA to fix it, send it in for Warranty Service. The Safety Lever Arm should not be doing that.

Cleaning the gun does not void the warranty.   When you say, "when i turn to semi mode from safety the gun acts as if on safety." Is the gun not firing or is the trigger actually, physically, blocked from moving?

I havn't opened it up yet. It doesn't always happen tends to happen every now and then when moving the gun from safety to semi. The trigger does not go all the to engage a cycle through the gearbox

Do you have a very fast or not quite complete trigger pull? Like some people use in paintball or with P*'s? My guess is that the gun did not complete a full cycle.  This causes the trigger shuttle to hang up on the cut-off lever.  It happens and can be avoided by slowing down your trigger pull.

I think this is part of the reason this happens to me. Thanks for the info. :)
