Hey everybody,
Just purchased a KMP9 and couldn't wait to fire it.
One thing I noticed was the gas spurs out in your eyes? Really making uncomfortable to shoot w/o some kind of eye protection.
Is this just mine?,please have some feedback.
Is there any screws to tighten to avoid this?
Thanks

They all do that, I haven't cared about it enough to see if there is a fix but I will look into it this week and see why it does it.

Due to the high rate of fire and power, the gas will escape from the rear. We always recommend wearing your eye pro when using any airsoft product.

Funny, mine doesn't do that. Granted it ejects HUGE amounts of gas out of the bolt every shot, but I haven't had a problem with it getting in my eyes (I use a "mesh" steel plate insert for my flakjaks, and wear prescription glasses underneath)

That's odd Dobes I didn't notice that when firing yours. I have read this though. Doesn't seem to make it any less awesome  :hithearts:

Yep just a tiny bit of gas escapes around the back, I think it is coming from the spring guide hole.
