Kwa lm4 fireing issue

I recently got a kwa lm4 and it wont shoot. I cant send it back and the warrenty ran out. I never shot it. I think the nocker pin that hits the gas release valve on the mag isnt hitting it hard enough. Im just getting into gas rifles so any help would be appriciated.

Are you racking the bolt when you load the mag?

Walk us through what you are doing. Its possible it is in fact the valve.

I swear the exact same thing happened to my WE Scar. Make sure when the hammer strikes the valve knocker it touched the valve. If not; check to see if something is stopping the hammer, if the spring is not strong enough.

It hits right above the main circle.

That's where it should be hitting; gas guns do not hit the protruding part, they strike the circle around it, they both create a right angle so the knocker has no where to go but out. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Ok well i guess the problem is that the stricker isnt hitting the release valve hard enough or the valve is to stiff to move
