M11 Bolt Carrier Hell
Posted 17 March 2011 - 06:24 PM
The outer cylinder broke, and I ordered the replacement part from KWA, okay that's easy to fix. Problem is, KWA seems to have glued the screws holding the bolt carrier together in and to make it worse, the little screws are phillips screws, so they strip on contact of course. How do I get this thing apart? Over the phone with KWA, putting the bolt carrier in boiling water and the heat gun treatment were suggestions, but niether is working. The screws aren't budging at all.
It's annoying I had to already buy a new outer cylinder, and it's going to be more annoying if I have to drop even more money on a new bolt carrier assembly, but whatever gets my side arm in tact fast is what i'm going to do, especially with training coming up.
I wont lie, after owning this gun for 5 days and it breaking down like this and giving me nothing but hell since it broke, i'm likely done with KWA after this. My first KWA purchase after a whole year of nothing but Marui, and I chose KWA becuase everyone said it was the best. The only way I think i'll buy another KWA in the future is if this gets resolved fast.

Although I think on the phone the man I talked to siad I can still send it in, I can't find the reciept anywhere. I bought it from Strike Force Sports on sunday the 6th of March, and can't find the damn reciept at all.
