Hi,

Found a M1928 one for sale for 100€, supposedly they’re good? This one has the full auto not working, never heard of auto missing, it’s usually the semi.

Mods, didn’t find any threads that are not a million years old, sorry.

Why do you always carry that umbrella?

Found the culprit. This part seems to be broken. Anyone got a name for this or a pic how it's supposed to look like?-- attachment is not available --

Cheers. That’s what it is. Problem was it only shot semi-auto.

To get a new part, if it’s not possible to make one or repair your one, look on “abz airsoft repair” in the USA.
I have bought from there before, not cheap but normally get good results.

Anyone got a clue what the official name of the part is, for replacement search?

I would call it a selector cam, but what it’s called in the USA.......

There's very little force on that part , you could probably glue on a small piece of plastic , I can only imagine it broke because someone tried to take the gun apart without removing the external selector part , if you were happy with auto only you could remove the re set arm it pushes up .

Give me a big enough hammer and a place to stand and I could fix the world.

Dadio: Tried multiple times to glue it, seems to be enough force to break the epoxy. I could go only full auto, but some WW2 games require you to fire only semi, so that would be a bit limiting.

Tried getting in touch with KA themselves, they replied and said they'll check their stores if they any spares of that part.

I've got stuff from the above mentioned ABZ airsoft but I remember it was expensive ( could be wrong it was ages ago ) , if its the same as a Marui one then maybe you could get one 3d printed , do you know anybody with a 3d printer ?

I think my cousin has one, so yeah. I can't find the ABZ airsoft website anywhere.

Update: with the shapeways part works like a charm. A little different than what was pictured here, works just as well.
