Is there a way to lock the MP7 bolt to the rear withOUT using an empty magazine?  I don't see a manual bolt catch on this gun.

So whats the point for a blot catch when their is a charging handle.... how do you use it? Pull back the charging handle then release it once you release it you release the blot catch? And from then on once you use a full mag you put in aother one and just release the bolt catch or do u have to do whole process again

The charging handle is for when the bolt is forward and you need to "charge" the bolt for the first round.  At the end of a mag the bolt catch locks the bolt back.  This is when you use the bolt release (releasing the bolt catch) to chamber a new BB/round.  The main purpose of the bolt catch being to indicate you are at the end of a mag.  Now, unlike a real gun, if the bolt catch wasn't present the gun would continue to cycle at the end of a mag even though there are no BB's.  This wastes gas and takes away from the realism of the gun which is what KWA is recreating e.g., a GBB that functions like the real firearm.
