KWC 1911 CO2 Mag Output Valve O-Ring specs?

    Hi everyone,


    One of my KWC 1911 CO2 mags needs a new output valve o-ring.
    I don't need a new valve and I'd like to have a few spare o-rings.

    Does anybody know the specs of this o-ring so that I can source a few? Searching for KWC specifially is a limiting factor it seems.


    Thank you.

    Interested in answers to this, too, so I'm really just asking the question to bump the topic:

    Is there anything special about these particular O rings, or are they just laike the ones that hardware shops have in different sizes in their thousands?

    Yeah, it'd be great to know the dimensions & material so that we could find alternatives in stores unrelated to airsoft.

    Take one out and bring it to a shop to compare sizes? Get a few in different materials (if they come in different materials) and see what works best? They're dirt cheap, as far as I remember. Smaller stores will literally have them loose in boxes for you to examine.

    Reckon when my seals go, I'll try that.

    Yeah, I really would like to do that. ...but I only have one working magazine ATM and I don't dare to take it apart while it's still working. Such a dodgy piece of design...

    Did you have any luck with this in the end?

    One of my magazines (fairly new too) refuses to hold CO2, just spews it all out the exhaust.

    I found a guy on ebay who researched the topic and found workable o rings. I bought a few off him, but didn't try them yet.

    The listing is gone, but you may want to contact the seller anyways:
