loose barrel on KJW MEU

Sorry for being such a pain with all my questions, but here we go again.
I have made 2 videos on YouTube so all can see the problem i believe I'm having with my barrel. It seems loose to me, but this being my first gun, and it being use I need to know if I need to change the parts.
thanks all.

just copy and paste

My ARMY MEU does the same, apparently, this is normal and it doesn't seem to affect performance in my gun (note: it is still all stock).

Normal



Mine does that too, it is just because of the outer and inner barrel.
Dont worry about it too much because it only wiggles like crazy when the slide is cocked back.

thats GREAT to here. I've hear about people doing something with the spring to make the kick back harded, as well is it posible to change the inner and outter barrel to an metal barrel, cause I love the looks of a crome barrel, unless the price is to high.

Like was said, completely normal.
Also, isn't the outer barrel already metal?

no it seems to be plastic, and if posible I'd like one piece all metal.

Why does it need to be changed...? A metal one will still wobble when the slide is racked back.

That's because the outer barrel tilts, imitating the RS effect. A metal outer barrel would yield the same result, unless it is a fixed/non-tilting barrel.

OK i just checked the outer barrel and its plastic and the inner barrel looks to be brass. I don't know the name of the thing that the outer barrel screws onto, but it to is black. I would like to change the outer barrel and the thing the outer barrel screws onto so they both have a chrome look to them. I have put a pic of it.

the top one goes inside the thing the barrel screws onto and it's the 2 bottom one I would like to change if possible if it's not to much.

Sure, you could buy a new outer barrel and chamber - except it won't be that cheap, especially if you want a shiny one. Are you willing to buy stuff online/from out of Canada?

I thought all KJWs come with metal slide and barrel, perhaps that only applies for Hicapas. You can buy a one piece outer barrel or chamber + outer barrel, but most likely it'll still tilt/wobble like it does now. However there's a DIY to fix that.
