RA-Tech/WE M14 Review/disassembly guide

Ok guys, this is my first review so go easy on me ;)

So I ordered this gun from Airsoft Taiwan because RA's "Web shop" as they call it wasn't working for me. Airsoft Taiwan Gave me prompt notice and told me when it shipped and everything. Very good customer service as well. When i got the Gun I wasn't able to fire it save one shot because I didn't expect it to get here in 4 days (Shipping was 7-14!) and I hadn't gotten my paycheck yet so I didn't have a propane adapter. This past weekend I had SO much fun, I got the propane Adapter on Friday and just started BLAZING away in my backyard.

The quality of this gun amazed me, mainly what RA tech had done with the gun amazed me, The steel parts mixed with the wood stock really made it look fantastic.



I really put this gun through the ringer. I went through probably 3000 rounds just testing this bad boy. I got some .28s and started testing the range, I measured this range as about 28 yards:

It was getting very nice groupings at this range, The only problem I have with it is the scope sits a little lop sided so I will have to shim it. Here is a picture of the group I got at 28 yards with .28s at 450FPS

Never mind the BB marks in the fence, That is from when I was sighting it in.

My only problem with the gun itself is the orange tip, its freaking huge!


The only thing I have done that I think is worth sharing is this, A Bi pod mount for an M14 that doesn't require drilling or bolts. I did this because I really didn't want to drill into the nice Walnut stock.

2 Hose Clamps
some rubber to keep the Hose Clamps from scratching the plastic/wood
1 strip of Aluminum

Ok, now on to how to disassemble it.

Sorry for the wait yall, I have had to cover shifts for people and pile that with school, it takes a lot out of you.

Ok so here is the Disassembly portion, I was surprised to find how close it is to the real steel version it is! Its very cool but enough talk! Now to the pictures!

So first you will need a small screwdriver to insert into the back of the trigger guard for leverage.


You will then have to basically bend back and rotate the trigger guard twards you like in this picture. then pull straight to you until the entire trigger assembly has come out.

Then, Rotate the upper out of the stock.

Set the stock off to the side

You will end up with this beautiful piece of Steel

You will then have to turn the Selector switch half way between full and Semi and then Rotate the Tappet down:


You will then have the Tappet off and set it aside

Now you will need your Philip's head screw driver to get the bolt out.
Now for a picture montage of screws and Pins you will need to take out:



DO NOT lose these parts:


At this point you should be able to remove what I call the lower receiver of the gun

Now you can get to the heavy ass bolt!




And thats how you take it apart! I really don't want to go any further because I already have the Hop up set and dialed in and everything so I'm not going to mess with it. But one last thing, to take the barrel off its just 2 screws:

Also, On the real gun I believe this is call either the gas tube or Lug I'm not entirely sure, but it is a screw and you need to constantly check it in case its coming loose:



In terms of upkeep you should ALWAYS before and After games go through your whole gun and Clean it until its spotless then lube the hell out of it, ALSO, before and after games go through and Check every screw and tighten them. If you do those 2 things you should be set!

I just want to add one thing, I wear this to every game I go to, and I thank a veteran every chance I get. Yesterday a Air force Munitions engineer came into Papa Murphy's and ordered his pizza I thanked him for his service and got all the guys to chip in to buy his pizza and we gave him the pizza for free. He earned it, Thank a veteran every chance you get.

You could get a bipod or rail that attaches to the barrel.

Thanks for the kind words guys!

Woogie, I have seen a video of a guy using it while it was snowing and it looked like it was doing great. I tested today how many mags I could get out of 1 charge (Keep in mind it was almost 100 degrees today) I got like 4 or 5 mags out of one gas chage in 100 degree heat, so in winter, im going to say that one mag should be easy.

Elder90,
I am really looking forward to this review! I just love M14's and I completely agree with you on the bipod.

Also to help you out if you messed up your wood stock you can get another one w/ markings from www.fredsm14stocks.com for a very good price. I have heard good things and it just takes time to get the product.

Pale,
Would you mind posting a link? I have been looking for a Harris Bipod that would attach to the barrel.

Yeah I have seen those videos.

I would still love to have one of these or the 10/22's from RA tech. I know when I had my GBB M4 I had all RA tech inners inside of her... and man was that thing a beast! So I know you are going to enjoy the rifle, and it will perform just as you want it.

I was looking at the M14 reviews, I'd like a WE/RA tech M14 in my collection but now I don't have the money for it. Maybe one day and possibly with the EBR stock.....

I was talking to a fellow Irish player and a top notch M14 EBR re-tech upgraded would set him back like

THe only differences are there are a few parts in the Level 3 that the level 2 doesnt have. If you were considering buying one, buy the level 2, Then, over time, replace the parts that break with RA tech parts. Thats what Im going to do.
