Hello all, I'm just wondering about my KWA's slide... When the slide is pulled back, the hammer is putting too much friction on the slide, slowing and sometimes even halting the slide from moving back into it's normal position. I've had this gun for about a week and a half now, and it's been doing very well, up to this point (even a couple 3 foot drops onto tile floors). Any and all advice is appreciated! Thanks.Posted Image

Make sure the hex screw is on tight and you may need to oil that part if it seems to stick a bit.  Mine shows the same wear pattern and I have no issues with my slide getting stuck during cycling.  And have you cleaned and reoiled your gun since you got it?  I recommend you do that since the old grease could have gotten pasty not allowing for smooth slide operation.

I let the slide get stuck on its own again and then pulled the hammer down, but the slide didn't move. Upon further review/cycling it is the polymer housing of the inner barrel (part 3 of the Mk II) that is getting held up in the metal slide (1C)... What could be the issue then?

My MKII never had that problem but my MKIV was a bit sticky and the slide did not go forward smoothly when released.  In my case the problem solved itself after a good cleaning and relubing.  I had to shoot through about 500 rounds for it to break in and operate smoothly.  And you may want to try using a lighter weight silicone oil like a 10WT.  That may also help.
Do you have a picture of the lower frame.  I would like to see the part near the hammer to see if you have any obstructions.

Try cleaning the outer barrel and the inner slide.  All if the surfaces that make contact and then re-oil with the silicone oil that came with the gun.

Thank you all for your input! I've disassembled, cleaned, and re-lubed everything, and it seems to have done the trick. Everything is running smoothly. I didn't want to go crazy with the disassembly right off the bat, but I'm glad I did now. Thanks again, guys.

Most of the time a thorough cleaning is all it takes.  Glad it worked out for you.

It's amazing how quickly a dirty gun, real steel or GBB, will fail.  I little lube and cleaning and it's all fixed.

I know this is very off topic, but how do you edit your picture to include text and lines RyHa7? I'm curious for future reference of implementing this for my own pics... Thanks dude.

You can start an account with sites like photobucket.  Then upload pictures and use their editing function.  Then just paste your image code that it will generate on your posts.
