USP Compact misfeeds, slide locks back, BBs roll out.
Posted 14 October 2012 - 02:50 PM
I've had a KWA USP Compact for about a year now, bought it brand new, have run it on propane since. I use propane, I probably don't lubricate it enough as I should, but I have lubricated the slide a couple times, but the gun has always functioned fine afterwards. I clean my barrel pretty much at the end of every day of airsofting
After adjusting the hop up by removing the barrel assembly and then putting it all back in, I had a functioning gun, but not long after the gun slide just started locking back every time i pulled the trigger. I thought the slide catch was just malfunctioning, so I just held it down as I shot, but the BBs wouldn't fire, they would simply roll out of the barrel. Whenever I insert a fresh magazine and rack the slide, the BB that should go in the chamber simply falls out of the ejection port.
Taking the barrel assembly out I could see a lot of grease built up in the barrel, so I cleaned it, I was still having the same problem. Hop up all the way on or all the way off has no effect on the outcome either. I have 3 magazines total and they all yield the same slide locking back result.
I was figuring that maybe the bucking had swelled so I was going to pick up a REAPS bucking or just a KWA replacement bucking off ASGI or Evike since I need to make an order to one of them anyway, but I didn't know if the ball that comes with the bucking sold on the KWA Pro Shop could be the culprit. I also wasn't sure if it could be the inner barrel.
So has anyone else had any similar problems/know a cure all solution?

Now it says it is out of stock, but give KWA a call because sometimes the online pro shop isn't always updated and you can place the order over the phone. Their number is 626-581-1777 and they're open 8:30am-5:30 pm PST weekdays, closed weekends.
