First off, I am new to this forum so if i have posted in the wrong section please forgive me.

I bought a KWA CQR Mod 2 a while back. I love the gun but I have run into an issue. After i replaced the stock handguard with a Madbull Daniel Defense 7" Lite RAS handguard, I am no longer able to separate the upper and lower receiver. Is there a technique to separate the receivers without having to take off the rail?

The only other modification I have done to the gun is replaced the stock lower receiver with a KWA KM4 full metal receiver.

Thank you in advance!

Hi FallenEagle - Welcome to the KWA Forums.  Regarding your question, are you trying to completely separate the upper and lower or are you trying to open the upper to allow for cleaning of the inner barrel?  If it's the later the piston is most likely note fully forward.  When this happens you can not open the gun with out causing damage to the piston body.  To fix this simply fire the gun in semi 2 or 3 times and try opening the gun again.

Hope this helps.

Worked like a charm. I can't believe I didn't realize that the spring was compressed. Thanks for the help!

Mine was like that from the vendor test firing it prior to shipping. My previous m4 had a functioning forward assist. Now I just get in the habit of dry firing in semi before I leave the field.

Its a good habit to have. I do the same thing. Only my reasoning before I started taking my guns apart was that it wore down the spring by keeping it coiled lol now I have two reasons for doing that XD

All my local fields require you to dry fire in semi before exiting play area. Needless to say, it's pretty ingrained in me now.

Thats also a smart idea. That way they can't have somebody accidentally discharge a bb and then get in trouble for it.

Contrary to popular belief, we do have SOME smart people in California. ;)
