PostSubject: KWA G23F Problem   Sat Mar 22, 2008 5:10 pm

I felt like shooting my glock today and when I took it in my backyard it would not blow back all the way. Also it will release all of the gas at a certain point.

Here is a video.

All help is appreciated.

Hmm I took down my KWA G19 and looked around at what you might be having problems with (because you have the same model as me but with selective fire) and my best guess is that its either the hammer not striking the gas vavle right or its the valve itself. Do you have another magazine to try? My WE Dragon used to have a similar problem and I swapped out the output valve and it started working again fine.

I tried my 50 round mag and is is still doing the same thing. I got this gun barely a month ago. I lubed everything too. I also emailed KWA about it and they haven't gotten back to me yet.

Dunno. It might be the hammer not striking the valve right but I dont know how to open that area up and fix it. I'd wait and see what KWA says or perhaps contact the seller. Also keep checking your YouTube comments since its such a wider venue with a higher volume of hits. Sorry I cant be of any more help.

Check and see is the front sight post is loose. My brother had his loose from normal play and it messed the gun up. The slide all of a sudden blew off the gun and into the air.

if it is the valve or something else, try bringing it in to the local store, so the can replace the valve, or find the problem. I can say that they should have more expierience with these guns than all of us.

I have seen this kind of thing on our M9 tester and we attribute it to over lubing the magazine.

This may not help all that much bc I have not actually sat down and tried to fix the issue.

If possible try drying everything off, cycling it to see if that helps and then re-lube it carefully.

Hm, that actually makes a lot of sense. Remember how I said I was having similar problems with my WE Dragon? That was my first gas gun (which I probably did over-lube) and now that i think of it, when I swapped out the valve, not only did it work fine again, but I remember it being all gunked up and I cleaned it not really thinking much of it.

My USP was messing up because I had not cleaned it. It would lock the slide halfway and release all the gas from the magazine. I cleaned it with a tooth brush and it worked.

Don't worry about it. I sent it to KWA 2 days ago, because they issue 45 day warranties on all of their products. I also don't have any airsoft stores around me. I dont think there are any in IL. There was one but they went out of business.
