I figured I would give you all an update.  The gun has had more work done on it...I know...I know....I like to tinker.  I got a Bravo flash mag to try out and you have to really file them down to get them to fit.  It feeds really nice on full auto, just gotta file the corners down.  It still won't drop freely from the mag well but I can easily remove it unlike when I got it.  I am going to use cold blueing on the bare metal to keep it from rusting.  I was wondering if anyone has yet to use a Lancer Tactical flash mag?  If they have, does it fit and feed well?

The rifle is brand new straight from AirRattle.  I have tried calling them, leaving messages, emailing, even tanking them on a review of the rifle on their website hoping they would contact me....NO LUCK.  So far they have the worse customer service ever.  KWA has been helpful and offered to replace the plastic metal lower with a metal one for the cost difference but they have not issued me an RMA number yet.  I have been waiting on that since Monday, March 9th.  I am a hair away from ordering the lower and doing the work myself.  Does anyone know if the parts on the plastic lower will move over to the metal lower?  I didn't know if the retaining pins/screws along with the buffer tube would match up properly.  Also, I have read where you are not supposed to just take a new AEG out of the box and start playing with it.  A lot of people say you are to open the gear box and make sure it is lubed, shimmed, and AOE is correct but does that not void your warranty?  Also, I thought KWA gear boxes were almost perfect from the factory?  Anyway, I wanted to let everyone know the responded that I appreciate your time.  Everything I can learn from this forum helps me take better care of my rifle.

I had one crack. I replaced it with the metal lower receiver, I think that is the only receiver for M4s they sell. It just has KWA stamped on it, NOT saying they don't have the plastic receiver for repairs They don't list it for sale.

Everything fits, i was going to order it from KWA but the only option was USPS priority mail at $35 Total $70 shipped

I ordered it on eBay got it in three days
$44 http://www.ebay.com/...=item35d545c8ad

$46 ships from Vegas
Find the best deal Maybe call KWA ask for the total. I found it for under $40 shipped

As i said everything will fit, no Mods needed for front wiring. You will need to re-use your trigger guard part #85 & pin #236

Also, after installing the selector switch you need the cover "lil button" remove it from the plastic receiver and glue it to the metal receiver i think its part # 8-1
