    SAFETY GUIDELINES

    WARNING! Failure to follow safety guidelines may result in serious injury.

    Safety Distance

    The effective shooting range is approximately 75 feet. BBs fired from this Airsoft gun may travel further than intended. Make certain that you have an adequate backstop.

    Eye Protection

    Eye protection should be worn at all times when both shooting and maintaining your Airsoft gun. Protect your eyes from silicone spray and BBs under spring pressure while performing maintenance on your Airsoft gun.

    Assume Every Gun is Always Loaded

    Until you are personally convinced otherwise, treat every gun as if it were loaded. Do not assume the chamber is empty based on your memory or someone else�s words. Always remove the magazine and visually check to confirm the chamber is empty.

    Beware of Barrel Obstructions

    Ensure the Airsoft gun barrel is free of obstructions before you fire the gun. Even the smallest obstruction such as lubrication or a stuck cleaning patch can cause a misfire or malfunction.

    Muzzle Control

    Always keep the muzzle of the gun pointed in a safe direction. Never point the muzzle at a person or object that you do not intend to shoot.

    Keep Your Safety On

    Keep the gun�s safety on until your sights are aligned on your target and you are ready to fire.

    Keep Your Finger off the Trigger

    Keep your finger off the trigger and out of the trigger guard until your sights are aligned on your target and you are ready to fire.

    WARNING! Airsoft BBs can be a choking hazard. Keep them away from children.

    Identify Your Target and Backstop

    Before you pull the trigger, make certain of your target and what is beyond it. The Airsoft gun should never be fired at surfaces where BBs are likely to ricochet in unpredictable directions such as rocks, glass, water, or other hard surfaces.

    WARNING! Adult supervision is required for any person under the age of 18.

    Failure to Fire

    If the Airsoft gun fails to fire, misfires, or malfunctions, do not look into the barrel. BBs can become lodged into the chamber, and serious eye injury may occur.

    Maintain Your Gun Properly

    Performing proper maintenance, as outlined in this manual, ensures that your Airsoft gun will be safe to shoot and will perform to design specifications for many years. Alterations, modifications or adjustments may damage your Airsoft gun, make it unsafe to shoot, and will void warranty claims.

    Store Your Gun Safely

    Always store the Airsoft gun in a safe place, and out of reach of children. Always transport the Airsoft gun in a carrying case. Never display the Airsoft gun in a public place. Keep the safety engaged, and remove the magazine before storing the Airsoft gun. Note: it is your responsibility to take every reasonable precaution to ensure the safe storage and transportation of your Airsoft gun.

    Orange Tip

    The orange tip on Airsoft guns helps law enforcement distinguish between the replica guns from their real firearm counterparts. Altering the coloration or markings required by state or Federal law or regulations so as to make the product look more like a firearm is dangerous and may be a crime. Operator assumes all risks and responsibility when doing so.

    Hazards of Being Mistaken for a Real Firearm

    Airsoft guns have been mistaken by Police and Law Enforcement as real firearms. A confrontation with law enforcement while carrying an Airsoft gun can result in serious injury or even death. It is strongly advised to operate the Airsoft gun at a safe and legal location. In the event that you are approached by Law Enforcement personnel, you must comply with their instructions to avoid any incident.

    Alcohol, Medications, and Drugs

    Do not handle or operate your Airsoft gun while under the influence of alcohol, medication, or drugs.

    Your Responsibility

    Your Airsoft gun is well-engineered and manufactured to the highest standards. It was carefully inspected before it was packaged and shipped from our factory. Its safe use depends on you alone. You are the ultimate safety device. Like many other devices, your Airsoft gun is safe unless handled in an irresponsible or uneducated manner.

    HOP-UP SYSTEM

    The Hop-Up device is one of KWA�s standard features, giving Airsoft BBs greater stability, further travel and increased accuracy. Airsoft BBs are light-weight and can be affected by wind when fired. With the Hop-Up system, the trajectory of the Airsoft BBs can be adjusted according to the shooting environment or surroundings.

    HOP-UP ADJUSTMENT

       Pull the charging handle to the rear, the ejection port will open and Hop-Up adjustment dial is revealed. Pull and hold charging handle to the rear when adjusting Hop-Up.

       Turn the Hop-Up adjustment dial forward to increase hop-up. Turn the Hop-Up adjustment dial backward to decrease hop-up.

       Excessively turning of Hop-up adjustment dial forward can cause Airsoft BBs to jam. Continued firing with a jammed barrel will cause damage to the gearbox.

       When Jamming occurs, immediately stop shooting and turn the Hop-Up adjustment dial backward to decrease hop. Remove jammed Airsoft BBs.

    Before removing jammed Airsoft BBs, be sure to return the hop-up adjustment dial to normal position. After removal of Airsoft BBs, test fire 2 � 3 rounds to check for clearance. Resume adjustment. KWA Airsoft guns are made with precision barrel, use only new, quality Airsoft BBs. The use of recycled or low quality Airsoft BBs are the primary cause of jamming. In most cases, it can severely damage the gearbox and inner barrel.

    Excessive Hop � Airsoft BB travels an upward trajectory path. Turn Hop-Up adjustment dial backward to decrease hop-up.

    Perfect Hop � Airsoft BB travels long distance horizontally.

    Insufficient Hop � Airsoft BB travels a downward trajectory path. Turn Hop-Up adjustment dial forward to increase hop.

    DISASSEMBLY

    Note: Before opening the receiver, the piston must be in forward position.

    1. Shoot in semi-automatic mode 2-3 times to clear the barrel and reset piston.

    2. Remove the Rear Pin only from lower receiver with the provided Allen wrenches.

    3. Use 1 wrench to hold cap screw, the other to turn set pin.

    CLEANING AND LUBRICATION

    WARNING! Unload and clear the Airsoft gun of all BBs before cleaning.

    Cleaning Procedure

    The Airsoft gun barrel should be cleaned and lubricated after each shooting session. Regular cleaning prevents the effects of BB residue buildup, and ensures all parts are lubricated properly.

    1. Ensure that the safety is engaged

    2. Disable Hop-Up by dialing to the normal position

    3. Remove the magazine and clear the chamber of loaded BBs

    4. Disassemble the receiver (see Disassembly section)

    5. Steps to use cleaning rod:

    a.   Cut a piece of clean cotton cloth to 1 inch by 0.5 inch size. Insert one end of the cloth into the hole in the cleaning rod (adjust the length of cloth for smooth entry into the barrel)

    b.  Wind the cloth around the cleaning rod

    c.   Apply a few drops of silicone lubricant to the cleaning cloth

    d.  Insert the cleaning rod into the inner barrel, turning the rod as you insert into the barrel

    e.   Remove the cleaning rod and check the cotton cloth for dirt. Repeat steps a to d when necessary

    6. Clean the remainder of the Airsoft gun with cotton-tipped swabs, or general purpose cleaning cloths.

    OPERATING UNDER UNUSUAL CONDITIONS

    Unusual conditions are defined as any condition requiring special maintenance. Perform maintenance outlined for the climate similar to your operational area.

    Extreme Cold:

    Operating an Airsoft gas gun in extremely cold temperatures is not recommended. Cold temperature will cause the Hop-up Bucking to harden, reducing its effectiveness or cause the gearbox shell to fracture during operation, rendering the gun inoperable.

    Extreme Heat:

    Do not keep Airsoft gun and batteries under direct sunlight for long periods of time.

    Dust or Sand:

    Dust or sand can get into a gun and cause malfunctions and/or excessive wear. Keep the gun covered whenever possible. Use lubricant sparingly, as lube naturally attracts dirt and other particles. After use in a dusty area, always field strip the gun (refer to Disassembly Section) and clean any areas you can reach with a soft, lint-free cloth.

    Heavy Rain:

    Keep the gun out of the rain and water. This will prevent electrical failure and fluid build-up inside the mechbox. Dry gun completely with clean cloth and clean inner barrel if necessary.
