There are no pics for this at the moment, only what there is on their website. The scollong bar at the top of the site gives you an image.

Ever wondered why the paint comes off your WE gun quicker than others? Well, an individual here in Taipei wanted their WE M4 upper and lower receiver re-painted. The gun shop owner took the parts to Guarder, and Guarder informed that the receivers on a WE M4 cannot take the pressure or so of being painted in their process.
Guarder dip their custom pistols into a vat of special paint which hardens on the parts being treated. WE receivers are poor quality aluminium and are unable to undertake this treatment. WE guns are spray painted, with what looks like a single coat.
VFC models also use the same paint process as Guarder.

It's a bit late for WE to make Glock-styled pistols...when KJ & Marui already established theirs (price & full-metal for KJ and the rest for Marui) - also apart from Browning, WE cannot make very good pistols...?

The individual is you Deni isn't it Laughing ? Have to somehow forgive them for their sales price...

KJ didnt make a G17, I've always wanted one and the KJ 32 is that top venting type which I dont like. I'm thinking optimistic, they may make it with better quality metals, they're AK74 is the best so far. The internals and externals are top quality. Very Happy

When they get round to making that sten gun - it could be full steel? I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

They can only get better Question Question Question

OK I'm wrong and I'll smack myself Wink - how about KWA/KSC? Not overly expensive as well...

I like my KJ G32C and I got it when KJ still bears real Glock marking on their products...not bad to have one or two of my Glock collection having the ported barrel...

ROF of WE's AKS74U is slower than expected and this should be the cause:



Also the weak internals - if all have been improved then I want the TAF wood handguard version Very Happy

I know someone who has done just this. But they weathered the stock and it makes it look better. No pics tho.

A new vid of the WE XM177, in Chinese tho. To me its an instant 733 Delta force, and more classic. Very Happy cheers

The barrel have been rectified to E2 configuration & the flash hider will be in stainless steel...




Couldn't be tempted so finally carried home the TAF wood handguard AKS74U - the slow full-auto ROF didn't impress me but after seeing this I'll let this gun of what it is (this attachment increase the full-auto rate by shortening the blowback distance)...one of the selling points of this is the first-ever AK GBB having the bolt travelling realistically full-distance...

It has to be the best AK on the market? Although, I'm no fan of the AK; still thinking of getting the G36c. But the WE MP5 will trounce the VFC one. Personally, it will be more stronger...

This WE G17 isn't mine...I "stole" these photos from others Twisted Evil

But was told this one will have identical internals with Marui's - wonder if Marui have already patented all their internal mechaniam designs Question

What you guys saw about that 3X PX4 pistols are actually from the WE production lines as well (Marui's PX4 copycat) - change the company name trying to avoid copyright infringements... Evil or Very Mad

I've put my name down for one at the local gun shop. But someone has already started to advertise one on Ruten.

I bought one yesterday and I was told that this model is a copy of the Marui 100%. I'd recommend WE G17 as it is a solid model that is upgradable to Guarder for those with deep pockets.

For the frame Guarder is the only choice - but for slide/barrel sets there're still many choices out there...

There is a problem with WE's XM177, they do not take the WE stanag 30rd mags. this partly due the the reciever being different than the M4.

So dont use them. Mad Crying or Very sad No

WHAT?!!! I reckon 177s can only look good with 30rd mag...luckily I got the Viper beforehand...

Will ask if any modification can overcome this though...

Well I've tested it out and you have to have the bolt in the open position to use 30rnd mags, push one in and release bolt stop. Surprised
