Need some advice on fixing my WE G18c

Postby [-Mossie-] » Thu Jul 20, 2017 8:31 pm

Hey Airsoft Pacific,

I've been having some blowback problems with my stock WE G18c and don't know how to fix it.

Problem:
Every round knocks the slide back (like it should) but when coming forward the gas blowback nozzle stops the slide from moving forward and jams it there. I can just push the nozzle back to 'unjam' it, but it happens with every BB.

Diagnosis:
I disassembled the upper receiver of the gun and the parts look visually fine. None were missing so I don't believe it's due to that. The nozzle return spring is slightly bent, too. I included a picture of the blowback nozzle 'jamming' the slide.

Thank you for your help! :)

Update:
I took the nozzle return spring out and can see it's a bit bent and unraveled at the front. I took the (return spring) guide rod out so it would be easier to see. Could this be the problem? :?

Yes. Get a new one and if that doesn't fix it all the way then you can look else where. But i would think that spring could be the issue.
