"So I got my hands on a KWA pretty recently and let me just say this is on par with most, if not all $300+ guns out there
great trigger response
awesome rate of fire
the metal upper receiver is pretty sturdy
amazing range (250 ft when dialed on a .28)
the polymer lower receiver feels pretty cheap yet at the same time feels really durable
is front wired (personal con)
that's about it, the gun out performed my friend's Krytac which should really say something about a gun that's below $200 "This will be a short to the point review. I own 2 of these both bought here.
Price is Low for what you get.
ROF is good around 13rps on a 7.4v lipo
Accuracy was good with the KWA Hopup and Bucking.
The hand guard fits Nunchuck style Lipos Easy.
FPS is 320 With a .25g bb xcortech chronograph. Kind of low for Long engagements.
BOTH of my guns WILL NOT shoot semi on 11.1v Lipo. They full auto shoot on 11.1v lipo. But on 7.4 they shoot semi Fine. so its got to be a design flaw or something. Both guns were 100% brand new out of the box and neither would semi with 11.1v. So at the field thats a HUGE issue when its a Semi game only or Indoor...You cant use the Gun!!
Over all its a great shooter but NOT with 11.1v. Stick to 7.4 or 9.6 and this will be great!!
If not for the full auto issue it would be 5 out of 5. Avoid 11.1v BUY IT!!! "Overall the KWA CQR Mod 1 is a solid performer. Its external quality is nice, with all parts having good tolerances and fit. The worst external part on the gun is the plastic lower reciever. It certainly does its job, but it feels and looks out of place compared to the rest of the gun. The plastic feels a lot cheaper and weaker than the plastic used on the stock, handguard, and pistol grip, and its color is a shiny bluish-gray instead of black. I don't expect it to fail unless its heavily abused, but it just doesn't meet the same quality standards as the rest of the gun. I understand it is what allows the price of the gun to be reduced, but the lower receiver just doesn't meet the standards I expected.
Internally the 2GX gearbox is smooth and reliable, and I've had no issues with the gearbox to date. The wiring, barrel, and 2GX hopup unit are of good quality. The only internal part of the gun I've had issues with has been the 2GX bucking. Even on the highest hop settings the bucking does not protrude far enough into the barrel to create effective backspin, and so the hopup is completely useless with the stock bucking. I replaced the 2GX unit with a VFC one, which worked very well. It has put the performance of the CQR on par with that of other AEG's in its price bracket. You will have to upgrade the bucking in order to receive acceptable performance from the hopup unit. (The VFC bucking is actually of poor quality compared to other buckings, but is one of a few buckings thin enough to fit inside the 2GX hopup unit) Rate of fire with a 7.4V battery is somewhere around 15 bb's a second. Effective range with the VFC bucking is around 200 feet, which is a significant improvement over the stock 2GX unit.
One of the best parts about the gun is the magazine that comes with it, the polymer KWA K120. The K120 is very sturdy and feeds extremely reliably, better than any other midcap I've come across. The only issue with the mags are that the external dimensions are undersized, resulting in a wobbly fit in KWA guns as well as other brands. In a few guns they are too loose feed reliably, but this can be fixed with electrical tape. I highly recommend you use KWA's technical forums for reference to care and cleaning for the gun. As far as battery recommendations, I would recommend a 7.4V Lipo with dimensions that are the same as or smaller than 15mm wide, 35mm tall, and 100mm long. You can fit batteries up to 130+mm long, but they cannot be very tall or wide. I believe the CQR is a good choice in its price bracket if you're looking for a well built aeg that only needs a very minor fix to be respectable on the field.
