    Figured i'd make my into before checking out the rest of the forums! I'm Gunny, 16 year veteran of the USMC. Formed a MilSim team in 2009 called Parallel 38. We are based out of East Tennessee around the Knoxville area, but typically travel to different states for events such as Lions Claw. Our team is currently over members strong, most with former US Armed Forces backgrounds.

    Hey, P83, thank you for your service, and welcome to the boards! Tell us a little more about yourself! How old are you, what replicas do you own? (I usually have more questions than this, but you answered several of them in your OP. Haha.

    I am 40 years old! Been in airsoft for a little over five years. I currently run with a Socom Gear (VFC) Larry Vickers Edition M4 that I had to "dumb down" because it was shooting 430fps out of the box (too hot for Irene and our field). I use a KWA SR-10 for my back up, a G&G UMG for CQB, and a pair of KWA ATP's for side arms.

    Beautiful collection. How are the ATPs holding up? Are they Gen 1 or Gen 2? My friend has had a ton of issues with the Gen 1.

    I had tons of issues with the first Gen 1 too. Slide locking, gas expelling out the barrel. All I did was field strip it, debur and polish the trigger bar and it has worked ever since. The secon ATP is a Gen 2 and I haven't had problems with it.

    Sorry for this question, but what is an ATP? I've never heard of it. Obviously its a pistol of some sort?

    Was the slide super easy to push back? My friend could litterally push it back with his pinkie.

    The KWA ATP is a gas blow back pistol modeled after the Glock pistols. It feels like a Glock in your hand, slighly resembles a Glock, and actually fits in most Glock holsters.

    Yeah the slide does go back pretty easy, but it has not affected the accuracy or velocity.
