This Halloween I went to a Halloween zombie game at a local field. At said game I had an accident where I fell on my gun. It snapped the front grip off right above the joint. The grip itself and all the moving parts at the joint of the gun are fine, however, the plastic of the frame of the gun snapped straight off.

Now the gun still fires great and all the internals are in proper working condition so I would like to salvage the gun seeing as how it is my favorite airsoft gun of all time. I am gluing it back on for a temporary fix but I would like to replace the frame of the gun.

My reason for this post is that I would like to know, can I buy the frame of the gun straight from KWA or do I have to wait until I find someone who is trying to sell theirs... I don't need any internal replacement parts (as far as I know)but I do need a brand new frame. I can even reuse the same side rails, sights, and stock.

I really want to fix my favorite gun so please let me know if the best way to proceed with this problem. Thank you.

(I will add pics as soon as I can but I think I did a fair job of describing the problem.

Log a ticket through the KWA Help Desk and list the exact parts (part #) you need. We might have what you need. :)

Thank you very much sir. I am currently awaiting my verification email but I already know the part number I need. I need #1 (frame) and possibly #3...

My next problem would be how to install everything onto the new frame... If I buy the piece directly from KWA, would there be some way you guys could professionally install it and anything else I buy from you guys? Or is a job that Airsoft GI could do?

Thank you again for all your help.

We can install it for you for just the regular labor fee plus the parts and shipping.
You will get an answer on your Help Desk ticket shortly to go over the fees and we will see if we can get the parts you need.

If you cant get just the body PM me and I can work something out with you, I took the guts out of one of mine to make the WA2000 so I have a plastic KWA body sitting here stripped, no rails or anything but it is solid.

Well I just found out they don't have any in stock. You have exactly what I need. How much will you part with it for?

Sorry bout that, wasn't trying to sell anything, pretty much giving it to him for shipping costs if he wants it though.

Ok, It looks like I might have a solid deal on a new frame and since I will be inside my gun I am thinking about some upgrades...

I know for sure I will be buying the KWA 6.03 PB and a reinforced loading nozzle but I was also thinking about this Shooters Design Rocket

http://www.airsoftgi...roducts_id=6514

Will that piece help with the performance? How so?

Sorry for all the newbie questions but the MP7 is my first GBB primary. Thanks to all the forum members who have been helping me out. I will be letting fellow players know of your kindness and ease of help. :)

before you start replacing parts, you need to ask yourself.  "What does it do?"

No point in installing random things that can blow your gun apart again.

Thats one of my philosophies spiggy, if you don't know what it is or does, don't consider it.
