Im going to commit. I can't decide to keep the PTS parts, replace with RS magpul parts, or put rails on, then what rails to put on, then i think it'll cost too much money and I want to buy mags. TOO MUCH STRESS. Ive had so much time on my hands that I made a detailed note about what to buy for the LM4, and why it needed, where to get it from, and how much it'll be. SO much time on my hands!

Here's GreatWatermelon's site. He's a mod here, so other than Spiggy, Radix or Allizard, or any other KWA employee, I would trust his word. I don't like his word, but I trust it. Heck. I don't think it's HIS word anyways. Stupid ATF... :angry:

And anyways, I needed a functional M4, so I purchased a KM4 SR7 (as my SR10 is out of commission right now) and an ATP. I'm also about to purchase the Hurricane M17 upgrade kit and two extra high flow valves on the pro shop for it. So I could use a couple more months to re-save up for it. Hopefully getting a job at one of the airsoft shops around here. Gotta call a couple more places...

What is wrong with your SR10?
And what area do you live in GA?

The wire harness has shorted out a couple batteries now, so I'm looking for a replacement KWA harness or the AWS Raptor FET. Also, a screw-hole where the grip screws into the gearbox is stripped so the grip isn't the most secure. It's not an issue that one would buy a new gun over, but I had been eyeing an SR7 for a while now and will be content with two AEGs in addition to my GBBs.

I'm just outside the Atlanta area, over by Stone Mountain/Lilburn/Snellville. I'm most likely going to KSU in the fall for my junior year of college, so I'll be moving out to Kennesaw sooner or later.

Maybe you are not filling correctly.  Some can of GG needs that perfect angle to fill correctly.

Try 20-30 seconds and if that doesn't work try a new can.  It could be the mag but sometimes it's the green gas can itself.

i appreciate the help guys. 10 mags and not a single misfire or vent (and mines a first run plastic spring guide) instead of silicone i used dupont teflon silicone lubricant (rubber safe) on everything but the mag, its a thinner oil so it seeps in to joints but it doesnt fling off easialy. iv been using it in the bearings of rc cars for a while with much sucess and now it seems to be the trick for my ATP aswell.

cant seem to find it on line but i get it at lowes home imp. for 5.00 for a 4oz bottle (also have aerosol but i perfer fluid)
heres the salespitch from the lable


A clean, light duty lubricant. Excellent for materials that may be damaged by conventional lubricants. Helps prevent sticking, binding and freezing.<
Formulated with DuPont™ Teflon® fluoropolymer to outperform other silicone lubricants in both metal and non-metal applications
Clean, non-staining and odorless
  • Waterproofs, protects, lubricates and preserves
  • For use on rubber, plastic, vinyl, leather, metal and wood
  • Eliminates squeaking and binding in windows, hinges, locks, etc.
  • Helps prevent rust, oxidation and corrosion on all metals
  • Protects o-rings, fishing gear, tools and farm equipment from salt, chlorine and corrosives
  • Helps prevent snow sticking and muddy buildups on shovels, snow blowers, wheel wells, etc.
Applications:
  • Windows, drawer guides and other sliding tracks
  • Hinges, locks and latches
  • Springs, plastic gears, o-rings and gaskets
  • Conveyors, rollers, tracks, tools & dies, fan belts, rubber moldings
  • NSF H-2 Listed
Can withstand temperatures from -40°F (-40°C) up to 400°F (204°C).






The anti freezing, sub zero temp thing seems to be true because it will still shoot frosty. i havent blatently tried to freeze it out but i do notice improvment. im going to keep running it and let you know how it does long term but i dont expect any damage since iv been using it on ceramic coated rubber sealed bearings for a while.
