So the part 45 turned up in the post but I have encountered a problem that I can't seem to find the answer to on the webz.
Whenever I try to gas the tank, the gas shoots straight out the front again. The gas is leaking from a silver pin type thing that moves freely above the brass blowback tube tube (not sure if that makes sense?). I suspect it may be part 72 on the exploded diagrams. If I press the pin forward from inside the receiver and try to gas it up, it actuates the blowback mech as it leaks.
So I took the whole thing apart and doscovered that without the brass blowback mech in place, the gas doesn't leak out at all... Put it all back together and managed to fire a couple of shots until the gas ran out.
However, whwn ut came to gassing it up again the gas pissed out the front again...
Thanks. I've actually ordered a bunch of parts from KIC already and are en route (no part 45 though). Blowback mech is actually fine- without part 45 in situ, pulling the trigger will drop the hammer on the release valve and it will vent everywhere. Kinda obvious really!
stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.

ajman: I don't think there's gonna be anything in northern New England anytime soon, and as far as I know there hasn't been in a while, but if you're willing to drive to Connecticut there's usually some decent sized battles a couple times a year.
