    Press the magazine follower and load the 6mm BB bullets along the magazine slot(full loaded 14+1 rounds)
    While loading, put finger at the back hole to speed up loading
    CAUTION:Using the standard 6mm diameter really round bullet to prevent damage to the barrel. Nonstandard bullet would render poor function or no fire.

    WE P08 Refilling Gas

    WE P08 Refilling Gas Place the magazine base upward, use authorized gas container, align the injector to the filler, and press downward. It takes about 2-3 seconds to complete the refilling.
    CAUTION: Refill with gas only. Unauthorized gas would cause incident. The refilled gas is volatile which will freeze the magazine. The pistol will come to operation when the magazine recovers to the normal temperature. Never store the gas container in the place where the temperature is above 40C, such as direct sunlight, inside car, fire and hot air conditioner.

    WE P08 First Load for Firing

    WE P08 First Load for Firing First load of bullet for firing. Pull the slide backward to a specific position, then release and let the slide moving forward to load the bullet in the firing chamber, and retain the hammer at the rear position, ready for firing.
    WE P08 First Load for Firing

    Insert the gas filled and bullet loaded magazine into the frame receiver.

    Pull down the hammer and take aim(repeated action)

    WE P08 First Load for Firing Aim the target, release the thumb safety, and pull the trigger to fire.

    WE P08 Precaution

    Never allow the kid under 18 using the BB pistol alone.
    Always wear goggles while firing. Pay attention never let any person around the firing range.
    Never point the pistol to any person and animal regardless whether the thumb safety is on or not.
    Never extend the finger into the trigger guard while it is not ready to fire.

    After long time storage, check all mechanical function of all parts and apply adequate lubricant to maintain the service life span and smooth performance.

    After finishing the fire practice, make sure there is not BB bullet left in the barrel, take all remanding BB bullet from the magazine, release the gas completely, packing the pistol, Magazine, BB bullets separately in the pack and store it at the safety place where the kid is unable to reach.

    Insert the gas filled and bullet loaded magazine into the frame receiver. Pull down the hammer and take aim(repeated action)
    WE P08 Shooting

    Aim the target, release the thumb safety, and pull the trigger to fire.

    When the slide is pulled back and released forward, the bullet is load-ed in the firing chamber, press the trigger to fire the loaded bullet.

    Attention: The maximum containment for a magazine is 15 rounds. After the last BB bullet is fired, the slide will be retained in the back position, it means an empty magazine condition. If you want to resume the firing, insert a new fully loaded magazine, press the slide stop to release the slide and to reload the bullet.

    WE P08 Shooting Process

    WE P08 Shooting Process After a long and continued firing practice, the low temperature of the magazine will cause a reduced gass pressure as well as the low velocity of bullet. It is a normal condition, not a trouble. Never practice the reverse firing for this action renders the gas hardness to volatilize and to produce the atomized gas of ejection which leads the damaged to the parts.

    AFTER THE FIRING PRACTICE. After the firing practice, take off the magazine from the stock, push down the slide stop to hold the slide in place and press the trigger to release the hammer.

    Attention:Take out any bullet that is inside.

    WE P08 Hop-Up Adjustment

    WE P08 Hop-Up Adjustment

    The Hop Up adjustment is to apply a compression on the rubber pad against the bullet, when the bullet is fire, it generates a self upward spinning to extend gunshot, which will be effected by the roundness of the bullet, varying gas propellant, climate and wind.

    Use a hex wrench to adjust. Tightening is to produce upward projectile and loosening is to generate a downward projectile.

    WE P08 Application of Hop Up

    HOP UP is a means to patch up the elastic rubber with high abrasion and low abrasion on the upper side and lower side in the bore, thus forces the fired bullet to create a swivel movement and a higher parabolic trajectory to increase the firing range and hitting concentration.

    How to develop the maximum performance of HOP UP

    Select very similar size of bullet ranged from 5.9mm to 5.98mm or 6mm in diameter and from 0.2g to 0.25g in weight. The light weighed bullet would fly in the sky and the heavy-weighed bullet would fall to the ground.

    The projectile force shall be kept to gain the maximum stability in an attempt to gain an extremely similar parabolic projectile for each firing. In fact, it is very difficult to maintain the stable pressure of the LG; however, a good shooter shall pay special attention to temperature of the magazine and maintain it not too cold nor too hot so as to have a stable pressure desired.

    Always keep the magazine part in a neat and working condition and properly lubricated to sustain smooth operation.

    The external factors. (1) A tranquil wind is good for development of HOP UP environment. (2) The ambient temperature shall be above 20 Celcius to maintain a stable pressure.

    HOP UP applies a principle in which an elastic abrasion rubber is posted on the upper part of bore directly contacting with the BB bullet. when fired, the bullet produces a swivel movement along the trajectory course. This design requires more energy and decreases the initial firing velocity but not so significant. Never the less, the change of the trajectory profile is largely dependent on the abrassion and BB bullet (weight and shape).

    The key problem of the gas-powered gun lies on the gas pressure. The most optimal temperature to operate the BB Gun is 20C-30C in which even under the condition that the cold would lead to poor evaporation of LG, it can be warmed up by hands to increase the pressure to a desired level. (Caution: Never use fire to warm up) Overheating would lead to trouble and risk.

    Warning! Precaution for Applying HOP UP

    (1)Trial fire: The trajectory calibration shall be processed in accordance with the instruction provided in this manual. (strict maintenance of rang rules and personal safety)

    (2)Familiarity with the Operation and Mechanism of described in this manual.

    (3)Under HOP UP firing, the maximum range is 80m, clean up all material and personnel with this range.

    (4)Holding gun in tilt position, pointing muzzle aimlessly, side wind blowing and ricochet would invite unpredicted accident.

    Attention:

    A. The regulation is processed only under the circumstance that all parts of BB gun are in good condition. The regulation on the worn out parts will result in difference or a failure. Please approach your distributor for consultation and assistance.

    B. Variation in bullet weight creates a variation in influence. In the projectile calibration, fire the bullet of the same lot and same weight.

    C. Wrong regulation: The user is liable for any damage as a result of disassembly, modification and replacement of parts on the WE BB gun; however, thedistributor will provide assistance in service and repair and the user has to pay the actual cost incurred.

    Unknown reason Please contact our distributor.
    The BB bullet does not eject out of the barrel. Deformed BB bullet Use the standard BB bullet only
    The barrel is clogged with extraneous material Remove the extraneous material from the barrel

    The motion of the slide is not smooth while firing BB bullet The ambient temperature is too low (in winter) Place the magazine indoor to recover the temperature. It is recommended to prepare two magazines.
    Insufficient gas in the magazine (a long and continued firing causes quick cooling and frozen)
    Low gas pressure in the magazine Refill the gas
    The trigger mechanism is out of work. Please contact our distributor
    The air-tight rubber seal is worn out or damaged
    Poor lubrication Poor use adequate lubricsting oil.

    Be sure to wear shooting glasses or Goggle when shooting.
    Put the gun beyond the reach of kids.
