The next generation of variable FPS Ronin AEGs have arrived. KWA’s upgraded VM4 AEG 2.5 gearbox are now drop-in trigger ready allowing users to employ their favorite MOSFETs or electronic triggers to maximize weapon performance. The Ronin T6 PDW is stacked with features derived from extensive user feedback; from the redesigned MLOK handguards, improved PDW stock, ambidextrous charging handle and KWA’s brand new SOCOM-style muzzle brake, the T6 is once again ready to dominate the playing field.
Prepare your gun for operation by removing the collapsible tanker/PDW style stock. Fully extend the butt stock assembly to the longest position and then depress the button on the underside of the stock housing. Once the butt stock is removed, you can then remove the battery cover plate by pushing down on the tab and pulling out.
With the battery cover plate removed, carefully locate the Tamiya connector and fuse housing and pull both components outside of the stock housing. Inspect the fuse by checking the window for any damage to the fuse. A damaged fuse will either look dirty or sooty or the fuse wiring may be incomplete or severed. In either case, you will need to replace the fuse promptly.
Connect your battery’s Tamiya connector to the gun wiring. If the plugs do not smoothly click together, you may need to adjust the connector’s orientation to ensure proper terminal connection. Forcing the plugs together can damage the internal terminals and cause damage to wiring preventing the gun from securing to the power source. Insert the battery into the stock housing and neatly tuck in the remaining wiring. Try to avoid bending the wiring excessively as this can greatly affect performance and may cause damage to the wiring. Replace the batter cover plate and reinstall the butt stock assembly.
To load BB’s, locate the BB’s loading port found on the top front section of the magazine. BB’s can be loaded either manually by hand or by using a specifically designed BB loader. Continue to load BB’s into the loading port until you experience some resistance in loading more. Once no more BB’s can be pushed down, your magazine is full. Excessively forcing more BB’s in will only cause damage to your magazine or your BB loader.
With a full magazine, you can now insert your magazine into the magazine well of your rifle.
Prepare to fire your gun by removing the gun from the “safe” position to the semi or auto position. Ensure you are aiming at a safe target and press the trigger to fire a BB. In semi-automatic mode, a BB will fire with every trigger pull. On full automatic, BB’s will fire continuously until the shooters finger releases the trigger. When not firing the rifle, always place the gun on safe. Remove the magazine by pressing the magazine catch and ensure there is not a BB loaded
PART 2 – ADJUSTMENTS
PTS Enhanced Polymer Back-Up Iron Sights:
The Ronin Tactical Series AEGs use the PTS Enhanced Polymer Back-Up Iron sights, which are made from ultra-durable DuPont Zytel High Performance Reinforced Polymer. The sights feature a low-profile, snag-free design that allows for sight adjustment without the use of any tools.
To adjust the elevation setting on the front sight, simply rotate the polymer wheel to either raise or lower the sight post. do not rotate the wheel too far, or the post may fall out.
The rear sight features both large and small apertures and can be adjusted by shifting the center place up or down. Wind-age is also adjustable by rotating the knob located on the right side of the sight.
To adjust your hop up, first expose your hop up assembly by pulling the charging handle to the rear and locking it back by depressing the bolt catch. Now test fire you gun in a safe direction and observe your flight path.
Once your hop up assembly is exposed and accessible, you can increase the hop by rotating the hop up wheel up and reduce hop by rotating the wheel down.
Once you have an acceptable shooting trajectory, you can stop adjusting and hit the bolt catch to release your mock bolt plate.
PART 3 – MAINTENANCE
DISASSEMBLING THE GUN
To disassemble your AEG for maintenance, remove the magazine and battery before continuing. Next, push the receiver front take down pin ensuring it is not blocking the upper receiver. Close the dust cover, then pull the charging handle to the rear while applying forward pressure to slide the upper receiver off. While removing the upper receiver, pay careful attention to the mock bolt plate ensuring it does wiggle free.
Once the upper is free from the lower receiver, slowly remove the inner barrel, inner barrel spring, and hop up unit. To clean your inner barrel, turn the hop up all the way up and use a cleaning rod with a barrel cleaning patch to clean your bore. After several passes with the cleaning rod and cloth/patch, the inner barrel should be free of any residue or dirt. Repeat this process until completely clean.
Reinstall the inner barrel back into the upper receiver and outer barrel. When sliding the upper receiver back onto the lower receiver, pay close attention to the mock bolt plate as it may catch the upper receiver and bend out of place. The bolt catch may also prevent the upper from sliding onto the lower easily, press the bottom portion of the bolt catch out of the way to ensure the upper slides on properly.
If your gun is not shooting, first verify that the gun is off safe and in the semi or automatic position. Next, visually inspect your wiring on both your battery and AEG as frayed, kinked, exposed wiring can easily cause your AEG to malfunction. Inspect the Tamiya connectors and verify that both terminals are completely seated to your battery. Further inspection of the wiring connecting inside of the buffer tube and leading into the gearbox may also be required.
If the issue persists, please contact KWA Customer Service for further instructions and RMA repair.
If your motor or battery is excessively hot after normal usage, you may have a pinched wire and it is recommended to contact KWA Customer Service for assistance.
Please note, our guns do have a break-in period of 1,000 rounds. You may experience less than optimal hop-up performance prior to reaching the 1,000 round break-in.
