"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.
"I'm a big Heckler&Koch fan, I have to say this is probably one of the best Hk airsoft replica. I carry this pistol as my sidearm to couple big games and countless pick-up games, so now I feel like It's time for me to do a overall review.
1. comfortable grip
2. mag holds 28+1 rounds. And also one gas fill will give you about 46-52 rounds.
3. VERY VERY VERY, RIDICULOUSLY ACCURATE.
4.Full HK trademarks
5.Can fit in P30 holsters, which is great for me.
1. It has a slide stop, not a slide release. So if you use it as a slide release it will damage the slide catch.
2.Mags are kinda expensive.
3.hop-up adjustment can be difficult on the field.
4.plastic outer barrel.
"this is the best green gas pistol i have ever gotten. Has a great range (goes farther then my m4) It is great quality, its worth every cent, it is more money than other pistols but it will last so much longer with no problems at all. It looks way better than the picture
