Are there any upper receivers and barrel nuts for sale, I cannot get my stupid barrel nut off and I might as well opt for a new upper and a new barrel nut if I cannot get it off.

As far as I know it was just the upper or lower shell.  The best thing to do is call to see what they have.

Just call our office, we can get you one for sure. You'll need to order it by phone and use a valid credit card. Just let the receptionist know you would like to place a parts order and she will get you an available rep.

hate to call and use up your staffs time to get a price and then find out it may be better to just get a whole gun...

got a kwa m16 (rear wired) that may be perfect for the upper swap if its affordable, would give me a few "options" in set ups.

but as mentioned price drives everything and if its only $50-75 cheaper than buying the whole gun it wouldnt be a smart investment.

you got any clue that you could share on this?

We have the Gen 1 uppers at half off the current gen upper at $50. Only difference is that the color is a little more on the glossy side and that the forward assist button is plastic instead of the current metal forward assist.
Call if you're interested.

The old receivers fit and work the same, just with the two differences that I mentioned above. They are also half the price, which is great for something that functions the same.
I only have a few of the current generation uppers, but they are for in house repairs only and not for sale. If I can get some more from the factory, I'll make them available.

I'm cheap... Does anyone know if Madbull aftermarket receivers fit? Or is KWA too unique to fit aftermarket receivers.

The 2GX gearbox won't fit in most, if not all after market receivers, without extensive modifications due to it's reinforced design.  This is especially true of receivers like the Madbull which require a one piece hop-up where, in addition to the gearbox modifications, you need to change the hop-up unit, bucking and potentially the nozzle which might then require a new cylinder head for good compression.

You are better off getting a 1st generation upper and painting it.  I used this on a banged up SR5 and it worked great: http://compare.ebay....mTypes&var=sbar

It's a close enough match that with time you will forget you painted the gun.  If you go this route, let the receiver dry for 7 days, yes seven, for best results.

Sounds great. I'd love to get ahold of a few different uppers for different purposes. Cheers!

Will you ship an upper receiver to Denmark?
I kinda screwed mine up, by sawing the locking mechanism off
