I have a KWA m17 that is a few years old. The slide would not cycle when I fired it, just a puft of gas and a weak shot. Occasionally it would spew all of the gas at once. I recently replaced parts 19, 20, 23, 27,75, 78, 79,81, 82, 84, and 94, this makes up most of the parts in the hammer assembly. Initially, the pistol worked fine but about 4 mags in it began to have issues again, failing to cycle and spewing gas. I tried firing the pistol with no bb's loaded and it worked fine other than the slide stop not engaging. I believe this means there is not enough gas pressure to cycle the slide properly. Am I correct? Anyone else have a solution? KWA was out of loading nozzle/gas chamber, rocket valve and spring when I placed my initial order.
