"Mixed bag of HK fanboyisms
Im not sure if I love this gun for how it performs, or how sexy it can be.
In the hand, this gun is comfortable for most hand sizes, it's MP7/USP push-down mag release is also very nice to use and is a great relief for those who are used to button mag releases.
This gun is as attractive as it is fun to shoot. I would recommend purchasing detonator steel parts along with this gun to give it it's full aesthetic potential. As soon as you buy the gun, you are going to want to replace the outer barrel anyway.
The gun is durable, as long as you don't smash giant blocks of ice with the bottom of the mag when you're bored (which broke one of my mag baseplates). Another gripe I have on the external quality is how easy I managed to chip my frame by accidentally dropping it on concrete, I expect a new frame shipped to me as soon as they come back in stock (which is difficult considering the recent KWA-H&K licensing snafu).
This gun is a performer. It fires a constant approx. 330 FPS when you feed it GOOD gas, and is extremely efficient considering how it managed to last about 2 mags of bb's on one five second gas charge in BELOW FREEZING weather. I tested this by completely burying the gun in 2 feet of snow for five minutes. The FPS didn't drop much either.
If I were to complain, all of my mental stress is on the sights. The sights are good sights, but their durability is VFC HK416 GBBR bolt durability. My front sight fell off a month after I purchased it, and the pre-administered blue locktite for the back sight (which is screwed in) doesn't seem to keep the screw from partially unthreading itself, which makes the sight wobbly. Parts for this gun are also extremely hard to find. If you get this with a threaded barrel, good luck finding a holster (I still haven't even found one).
Overall, this gun is a winner if you get new sights and detonator parts, which don't come cheap. If you have the money or the time and effort to bring this gun to it's full potential, this is an amazing replacement to your current green-gas pistol. "This is an amazing pistol. It is full metal except for the outer barrel, you can power stroke it (pull the slide back while the slide is locked to load a bb into the chamber), it holds alot of bbs in the mag, very efficient(i can go through over 2 mag fils until the gas runs out, and i love the functioning decocker and saftey. All in all this is the best pistol i own and it has alot of kick, as well as the Heckler And Koch and Gambel trade marks all over the gun, even internally it has hk trades. Very accurate and easy to adjust the hop up. For the price its an amazing gun, in my opinion its the best gbb pistol out there. The only downside is that the slide can sometimes get a little bit stuck, so make sure to fully disasemble the gun which is very easy, just line up the square with the pin and slide the slide off, then pull the recoil spring out and the barrel, and you want to clean every inch of the gun with a q tip until there is no more black residude from the machines on your q tip, then oil everything that moves up with 100% silicone oil. also the decocker can be a little fidgety but not very often if at all. lastly, the only upgrade i did to this gun is replacing the barrel with a metal one from RA-tech. "KWA makes excellent pistols, this is no exception.
I have had very few functional issues with this pistol. Gas efficiency is excellent, even in cold (40 degrees and below) the gun functions fine. Accuracy is great out of the box. I use .23g BBs with propane, and the effective range is comparable to some lower end AEGs. Despite the look, the gun feels great in the hand. While it is not recommended, I temporarily removed the orange tip (I can still pop it in the barrel, which I do when I transport and store it). It looks way better, and it fits in a Kydex holster for a real steel HK45. On the subject of looks, I think the finger rest extension on the magazine looks stupid because its a full frame pistol, but that's how the real gun is, so I cant really complain much.
Like other polymer frame pistols, the rear of the frame, between the trigger and the slide, is a weak point. The outer plastic tends to break off with heavy use. This was the same for their USPs. Not a big deal, since it doesnt effect function, and it can just be glued back on.
Magazines. The magazine that came with the gun (the only one I currently have) had some loading issues. The follower tends to get jammed, preventing the BBs from feeding up the magazine. This has been an issue when I pull my sidearm to get a close engagement kill, and it fails to load. I've tried cleaning the inside of the magazine, where the follower travels and the BBs sit. I dont want to file down the follower in fear that it may lose the ability to lock at the bottom. I hope this issue goes away with use.
Double action/ decocking is funky. Again, like a lot of airsoft pistols, decocking and double action are a little screwy. It is fine to shoot, decock, and use in double action. But, if you remove the magazine after decocking (or before), it needs to be re-cocked when the magazine is inserted. Not a big deal, just need to keep the magazine in the gun if you are going to carry it in condition 2 (round in the chamber, hammer down).
Front sight is also prone to sliding out, I glued mine in before I lost it.
The gun comes with a split style bucking, which is why KWA's pistols are so accurate out of the box. (Con: the HK45 hop-ups are semi-proprietary, there are no aftermarket companies making rubbers for them yet)
Super efficient. Close to 3 magazines of BBs on one fill (on a nice warm day, shooting at a calm pace). Also 28 rd mags.
Trades are quite nice. Laser engraved, so eventually they might wear off, but they look great.
