    My friend just recently acquired a brand new KWA/Umarex H&K licensed
    USP-CT. However, the gun has been problematic when we tried to shoot it.
    1.When we got it to work, gun only weakly blew back once.
    2.Barrel jammed w/ three brands of BB'S.
    He needs help with the gun, and since I have no experience with KWA GBB's, I need help.

    What's the ambient temperature when you try to use the gun?

    The temp was I believe 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The gun was brand new,out of the box.

    That might be why, correct me if i'm wrong but if the temp is to low gas guns are very inconsistent and are basically rendered useless. I bet if you used it somewhere that was warmer it would work better.

    The gun has to be shot in a warmer temperature, I believe that is the reason

    I have heard KWA's firing in at least 30 no problem. That was a problem I was considering that though.

    No way that is way to low of a temperature maybe it was co2.

    Just filled the mag at 40 degrees, got one shot, second shot barely went out. We started hearing a leak towards the bottom of the mag. Any help with fixes?

    Do you have multiple magazines? If so, try each of them. If none of them work, it's the guns fault, if one or two of the mags work, then it's the one leaky mags fault. I'm pretty sure you already knew this though...

    EDIT: the jamming part I do not know about.

    It's 40 degrees man, the gun won't work in temperatures that cold. There's nothing special about KWAs in low temps, the gas doesn't have the pressure to fully open the valve or drive the slide and bb. It's simple chemistry.

    Okay, so I guess it's just too cold. I just had the feeling it could be something else.(I'm used to using my TM pistol which I can use decently in winter)
    EDIT:We got through all his mags at 60 degrees inside.
