I have had my KWA ATP for about a month now and have been experiencing all of the problems that have reared its ugly head up over the internet. None of my 3 magazines will hold upon on last round, I have gas venting out the barrel, The weapon will firing inconsistently shooting a bbs then cycling dry about every 1 of 3 trigger pulls. I use green gas, I have applied silicone to the trigger group. What else can I do before i sent it in to KWA? And will KWA accept it without an orange flash hider?

Sorry to hear of your issues with the ATP.  I have a few questions.  What do you mean when you write, "None of my 3 magazines will hold upon on last round"?  Do you mean that the slide is not locking back or something else? When you lubed the the "trigger group" did you apply silicone to the hammer, hammer spring, reset bar, etc?  Also, did you manually work the hammer a few dozen times to insure the lubrication was worked in?

I did apply silicone to all those parts but did not manually work them a few dozen times, that I will try, and sorry for the typo, yes it won't hold open in the last round.

The slide not locking back could be caused buy several issues.  Here are some of them

Insufficient gas efficiency caused by
  • An almost empty green gas can - Mag not full, get a fresh can of GG
  • Sticky valve - Lube the valve
  • ATP needs cleaning and lubing especially at the slide - Clean the gun as per the GBB maintenance guide - It's a "pinned" topic
  • Hammer not fully engaging and therefore there is not enough gas flow - Needs lubrication and to be worked in as posted earlier
  • Cold weather/mag
  • Damaged magazine BB follower
  • All or a combination of the above
Hope this helps.

Trev is correct regarding guns that are intentionally altered.  However, if you call KWA Customer Service they may have a way for you to send the gun in.  This is based on the fact that there have been instances where the orange tip has come off through no fault of the owner.
