A look into the Rare Asahi WA-2000 Dx

Well, I decided to take some photos of my Asahi and put together a take down guide for a rifle that virtually no one has

Figured I would take some pictures of the rifle being disassembled.

First thing needed to be done is to removed the butt plate, to do so the bottom adjustment screw needs to be undone and the top one loosened. Then it just slides out.

Once that is done, the cheek piece can come off. Top adjustment screw can now be taken off, holding it on is just a square nut. Then the single screw on top of the cheek piece is all that is left holding it on.

Next to be done before removing the side panels is to removed the forward furniture, to do so 2 screw need to be removed. Under this is where the 8.4v Mini is held.

Now the side panels can be removed, 5 screws and 1 in the charging handle needs to be removed to do so.

Since all I am trying to do is lift the upper square tubing piece, only the 2 top screws on the rear right panel are removed.

Same with the panels up front, only the top screw is removed.

Only thing holding the upper piece on now is a screw inside the square tubing.

Now the piece just lifts up and is free.

Now the outer barrel can just be screwed off from the barrel nut.

The brass colored hole on the right is where the pieces to apply hop up go. This is were the screw that originally held the inner barrel was. Kinda lucky that the placement of this hole is in quite literally the perfect place to be used to apply hop up.

Here is the piece that applies pressure on the bucking and the screw to adjust the amount of pressure.

Lastly, here is the barrel that has been modified to use the VSR bucking that is on it. The thick outer sleeve needed to have a section trimmed off, and then with files a VSR cut was made to the inner barrel. I would of taken the bucking off to show the cut, but the bucking has been sealed on with silicon glue. I didn't feel like peeling it off for a picture just to seal it back on a few minutes later.

To the left is the solenoids piston, and the little spring that fits in an indention on the back of the piston. The piston is a solid piece of magnetic metal with a little rubber disk on the front (Which is facing left). The piece on the right is what is used to tune how long the piston lets gas through, tighter it is screwed in, the less space the piston has to move back, and the faster it starts it way back forward blocking gas flow. Screw it out some, piston has a longer travel allowing for more gas to flow through increasing FPS without having to increase PSI on the regulator.

Here is the rubber disk on the front of the piston, all it does is create a seal on the back of the loading nozzle, very very simple process on how it allows gas to flow into the barrel.

That's it for the WA-2000. Doubt to many people need this guide to take their WA-2000's apart

Figured people would like to just look at the pictures though ;)

Thanks for the pics AGAIN !!

Saw them over at ASF ... and I cried a little when I saw it there... :(

Man I wish I could get one of these rifles. I hate not having it.....

That and my wife would kill me if she found out I bought this rifle, as she already knows what it costs.

You're not the one who offered me $4k for it are you?

Why on earth would you let your wife know what your future purchase would cost xD
Now I wasn't the one that offered that ... I was the one that knew where another one for sale is.

I made the mistake of showing my wife the rifle and she saw the price tag...
Although when I get my enlistment bonus from the guards.... I may have to get the one for sale.

Do you ever schermish with the rifle... or just a looker on the wall?

Shame its not bolt action?!?! What?!

I get semi auto goodness with the benefit of having quite literally less than a FPS variance between shots, and that's with rapid fire too.

And for the one who asked how much, I was offered 4000$ for it not to long ago, so that's what I'm quoting it at...
And you have a lot of guns.
You need to make a super thread of your rifles.
Only 8 of those 20 I still own.

Although I'll try to get a picture of them together by this weekend.
Why is this not in A glass case? Haha.

Thank you very much for posting these up on our forum, I'm sure there are no other pictures like yours on the internet. You've got quite the fine piece there my friend. You live A very fortunate life at only seventeen to have such A collection, I guess if I never bought A bunch of cars and motorcycles I'd have the Asahi L96.
An asahi L96??? I didn't know there even was one?!
Yep, the KTW one is A beauty too. None will be that of the bolt action Asahi M40 though.

Here is A Asahi L96 with custom SD option, Maruzen APS2 compatible. I will have one some day.
Would be nice if I could read that stuff

And the barrel and reciever can seperate for travel?! NICE!

And looks like it takes APS2 parts.

Pretty sure this is a necro post so feel free to delete
, but I found a rifle just like that on redwolf airsoft for $420ish and is made by ares.

That rifle is spring powered and no where near as nice as this one.. ;)
The ARES is A copy of the Geneth WA2000, spring bolt action capable of APS2 parts as well. The Geneth has more of A place in my heart than the Asahi, due to no electronic servo bullshit and consistency.

Unless you live somewhere that the temperature stays the same, with little modification, the ARES/Geneth will out preform the Asahi any day.

Has anyone heard about the Asahi Blaser R93 before? Another rare gun with A much better wrap than their WA2000.
That may be, but the Asahi is still top dog...

Now does that mean I am not going to try and get the Ares one.... hell no.
Yeah true but then again, for me at least I was scanning the rifle on their website, you know the process you look at the pic your in love you look at the price and your heart breaks and then you move on looking for other cheaper ones (kinda imitates real life) ;)
