I recently purchased a used  M11a1 and want to through some upgrades into it. It needs a new bucking, should I just get another stock one? Where can I find a longer tbb. is there anything around 30 bucks? KWA sells one but I only saw the stock length. I also need a barrel extension. I know polar star has one but I don't wanna spend 60 bucks on a suppressor just yet. what threads are on the Mac 11?

Also, if I fire on full auto there is only enough gas for about half of the bbs in the mag. Do i need another loading/feeding nozzle for the gun? or is it another part.? I also have two brand new mags that do the same thing so i don't believe its the release valve on the mag
thanks for the help

Hi maniac, welcome to the forums.

For the bucking, just get a new stock KWA one from the pro shop. They are fantastic. Try searching around the internet for a tbb... ehobbyasia, etc. I don't think there is a longer than stock barrel made for the M11 though. You could try buying one made for a different gun and testing it out, but it probably won't work due to the fact that all barrels are cut a specific way to work with each individual design of a gun. Polar star sells a great barrel extension, and that may be your only option as far as hiding an extended inner barrel and making your gun look uber kool. Not sure if the threads on the M11 can hold a barrel extension, but I know Danger Werx is coming out with their own threads: http://kwacentral.com/2012/05/17/872/ which are 14 CCW!

In terms of getting enough gas, it might be your pressure in your cans. And also, try filling your mags longer. It may take anywhere up to 45 seconds of filling to completely fill your magazine... unless you have a leak, you should be getting much more rounds down range from a single gas charge than half a mag. So, try taking longer to fill your mags... like 5 second fills, after short pauses...

Hope this helps! :)

The pro shop used to sell an extended barrel that fit inside the polar star. It was made by edgi and cost around $60. I guess you could try calling and see if the have any or will in the future. The barrel threads can only hold barrel extensions made for Macs. I think a couple Asian companies make barrel extensions (look on ehobbyasia.com). The polar star is great though and worth the money, plus it's made in the United States :thumbsup:.

Looks like it fits, and it seems to provide increased range. I can't recommend it, but you could be our guinea pig and try it for us! :)

If it was my call, I'd play it safe and order the standard KWA hop up bucking.
Here's the link for the standard kwa hop up bucking:
