She came in today via UPS, was glad to open her up and did a once over on her.  I checked the hopup teeth and they were all there.  My spare mag filled up without any issues.  So far I've run about 6 mags through here, it was too windy outside to get a good gauge of accuracy.  But for what I'm going to be using her for (CQB) it looked pretty decent.

Now for some pics:

Tech-D, congratulations on your LM4!

A few tips to make sure your LM4 runs reliably and performs well.

1. Do not use Slicone Spray. Use silicone oil (RC Shock Oil Wt. 30).
2. Be sure not to load over 40 rounds. Doing so MAY cause damage to the feed lip or cause a bb to jam and shatter. Many have done this without having problems, more or less it's a safety precaution for now.
3. When adjusting your hop up, do not apply too much force against the hop up. Be sure your tool is meshed up properly with the hop up and rotate it gently and slowly. That will save you from breaking any teeth.
4. Slay lots of bodies.

Thanks guys, as for the questions about the bits:

     The front rail is off my old KWA RIS, as well as well as the stock.

Also thanks for the maintenance info, been keeping my eye on the forums for a few weeks now and noting all the little issues users are seeing.  Looking outside it looks to be a beautiful morning so I'm going to take her out and do some shooting.  I'll make sure to get some video and post that up.

He said he took the RIS and the stock off of his KM4 RIS.

It looks like by coincidence that they happened to post at about the same time.

I did have my "spare" mag fail this past weekend.  When doing some shooting I went to fill the mag the gas was just expelling.  So I took it to my local shop as I don't have the valve tool yet.  The tech removed the Magazine Release Valve and noticed it was sticking.  So after a little cleaning with silicone it was back to normal.

The tech stated that there seemed to be "gunk" in there restricting it from working freely.  I have only be using King Arms green gas so I'm not sure what might have caused it because it worked about 1/2 dozen times before I saw the issue.

More of a FYI for something to check if you have mag issues.
