Its hard to tell when youre holding it, because it looks like the normal bearing type spring guide, unless you take a closer look at it. Its harder to tell from the picture. And it is made the same way. You cannot take the washers apart just like the bearing type spring guide. So, unless you take a very close look at it, you cant tell the diff until you see the ball bearings or the inclined washer

the pro shop specifically says spring guide with bearings.

Then its should be what it say its it is  :D . Only people who have purchased these parts (KWA stock piston head and spring guide) or people who have actually seen the stuff sold in the  pro shop would know.  As far as I can tell mine only has washers (piston head and spring guide)

Wheres that god of airsoft Allizard to verify this matter :lol: Radix or Allizard please come to settle this, Im not sure if I should replace my spring guide >.>" cause it would be a waste of time and money if it isnt washers.

It's got a washer in place.  Works much like a bearing but without the little balls.

i didn't mean to open a can of worms here.  :rolleyes:

i was just curious why the stock replacement spring guide in the proshop has bearings and the actual m4's did not. or maybe yet, that part should have been placed in the "performance" parts category. well enough fuzz about the spring guide. lol

I love KWA gears.  Most don't need shims, and apparently KWA shims them if they do because when I first got my gun there were shims on the gears.

Geat pictures :)
