So 1st of all this is the first airsoft I have ever held. I knew nothing of airsoft before I went to a local shop. I bought an ATP Auto from my local dealer for my son to shoot when I go target shooting. So that being said it will get used very seldom. I bought the gun, a few cans of green gas and a 5000 bag of .30 bb’s for about $170.
So we took the gun out last weekend and I was impressed with how tight the pattern is. I ended up using it more than my gun. One thing I noticed is the rear sights move very easily. Like after a few mags were run through they were sliding all over, a few mm left or right. Is there something I need to tighten to fix this? I did not see anything obvious.
Also, I know this is not a true replica of a M17 but it is really close. Is there another KWA, or other, outer barrel that I can fit on the gun that does not stick out past the slide so much? Like the pictures on the gun’s manuals and like I see online. If I swap them will it void any warranty? My son & I both commented on how it looks out of place.
My local dealer also tried to sell me a propane adapter. I have read that propane should not be used. Is this true? We have not finished our 1st bottle of green gas so we have a ways to go before I need to do anything but I have 4 Colman propane tanks that are laying around. And it would be nice to use those up.
Also on fill up using the green gas it did not start spilling out after holding it in no matter how long I held it. Am I missing something? How can I make sure it is full?
Since it will not be used much, Is there anything different I need to do to store the gun between uses? I remember from my paintball days all the damn O rings drying out… Do I need to keep some gas in the mag for storage?
