    Recently picked up a Kwa g18c... The gun seemed to be in good condition but the only issue stated by the seller was the recoil spring was weak. So I shot it but the gun barley even cycled back. Is that that fault of the recoil spring? Or is something going on? The slide cycles halfway.

    Sounds like a recoil spring or a gas related issue. I know guarder makes replacement springs.

    Is the recoil spring the main issue?

    If the seller said the recoil spring was it, that's most likely your problem.

    What could the gas issue be? Not really a big gas blow back person. He did tell me that he installed a rocket Valve and that was about it

    Hmmm, The reason it might be a gas problem is If there isnt enough gas, the gun wouldnt be able to cycle.

    I think you guys mean..."hammer spring". "Recoil spring" is entirely different. OP should replace the hammer spring and see if it fixes it. It's a $5 part. Even if it turns out to be a problem with the BBU: it's always good to have a few hammer springs on hand. Hammer springs are known to be the main cause of light-strikes (in OP's case).

    Still...prepare for the worst. When it comes to fixer-uppers: you don't know what's wrong, so assume everything's wrong. For a newb: that could be too much for them to bear.

    FSTK is probably right, because if its not gas its most likely going to be a problem with the hammer spring.

    The hammer spring is fine. It seems to be fine.

    I don't even know! Haha the recoil spring might be the reason. But I'll post a video in a bit if you want to see the reason.

    The slide barley cycles back and sometimes gas practically explodes out. Also the mag doesn't allow to be filled as it just leaks while being filled, but the mag doesn't leak at all when gas is in it.

    Any ideas? The mag is acting funny. You can tell right? How it Spews gas everywhere. And do you think this is the cause of a recoil spring,

    No, because the reason of the gas is probably the 0-ring, but the cycling problem is just all around confusing
