I purchased a WE PO8 on the recommendation of someone who was extolling their virtues on this site. The recommended supplier was Redwolf Airsoft. The first charge fired just fine. Second charge expelled all of the gas with the first shot. Subsequent charges all expell with the first shot. I contacted Redwolf and got absolutely no satisfaction. They replied to the 1st email and then I never heard from them again. So much for my rant against a company I have not done anymore buisness with and absolutely intend to never deal with again.
My question is this. What to do? Is this a common problem and what is the correct way to repair this. Sorry to bother folk, but I have not had any experience with any of the airsoft pistols. Thanks in advance.

Hm, well this is why I moved to KWA, KSC, KJW, etc for all my gas pistol needs. A friend and I had burned through 5 WE Tech 1911's, and we take meticulous care of our guns, there is no reason they should fail, except, that THEY are the problem. I've had guns do that and if I lube the mag and internals excessively, it shouldn't do that, maybe something is caught up in some mechanism. As for Red Wolf, try calling or whatever, they have to answer eventually... Good luck on the pistol though.
My experiences with WE are mixed. Their guns can last up to a year (my current 1911) or break very soon, like your luger. I see many WE pistols at the boneyard sales at ASGI, primarily their lugers. The longer barreled navy and artillery models are the most common. The primary issues are going full auto, or not being able to remove or load a magazine. The lugers also have potmetal internals, so most of em that have any good use show strong signs of wear and tear.
it seems though you just got a lemon. Aside from trying a new magazine (if you have one) I don't know what else you could do.

Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

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.
