"This was the first airsoft gun that actually worked well for me, after a few months of cheap spring guns and a junky $30 AEG. The KJW M9 is probably still my all-time favorite gun.
I've used this same M9 since March 2011. I've only had to replace the hammer spring, the trigger spring, and the frame's main chassis because of stupid mistakes on my part. It has outlasted four magazines (three gas, one CO2), has a well-worn finish, and I've probably fired OVER 9,000 rounds through it (no exaggeration), all with consistent good results. It has been dropped at least ten times and bounced into a muddy ravine once, but nothing was damaged; there are no dents, no cracks, just scratches on the finish. Let that serve as a testament to this gun's shocking durability.
As far as performance goes, the gun shoots at about 300-330fps, and it is extremely accurate (can easily hit a man in the head at 50 feet). The recoil is forgiving, allowing one to rapid-fire the pistol, if need be.
Overall, you can use this gun for just about anything except sniping, for obvious reasons. I recommend it as a sidearm for ANY loadout, and it is an amazing CQB weapon.
Just be careful if you take off the right grip panel, as the hammer spring may launch into the air and "disappear".
- DURABLE! (Full metal)
- Sleek Beretta replica
- Upgraded internals, CO2-ready.
- Affordable magazines
- Compatible with most WE and Marui parts.
- Extended magazines are available on Evike.com
- The barrel is not threaded, but the gun is perfect as is. "Pros:
In terms of cost, it's not half bad.
The gun feels and looks great.
That's about as far as the Pro's go.
Mag falls out after each shot is taken. Having to hold it in gets old and tiring after a while. Almost defeats the purpose. I'm not the only one experiencing this issue (judging by other reviews below, and Google).
Trigger feels a tad wobbly, but is responsive.
Orange tip was definitely tough as hell to remove, but well worth the effort. "Out of the box, this thing seemed pretty nice. It had a good weight to it, and it was fairly accurate. It comes with instructions on how to adjust the trajectory of the bb as well as a little tool you can use for that. Keep that tool because the other hexagon wrenches that I had that were supposed to be 1.5mm would not fit.
The issue that I had was that it had a jamming problem. The blue nozzle would get jammed after each shot or a few shots. This is a major problem for me because it's not good when my gun is jammed, but also the slide will not close, thus allowing all this dirt and stuff to get in there. I think the reason for this is because of the nozzle being a little too tight for the piston cap. I assume this minimizes lost of gas power and increasing FPS and range, but all of the FPS will be useless to me if the gun jams like that a lot. I'd like to point out that this mainly, if not only, happened with the non-WE magazines. The standard and hi-cap WE magazines I have never had a jamming problem that I could recall. However, the mag that came with the gun, a mag of the same brand, and a CO2 mag caused this jamming. I assume that these magazines feed a higher power of gas, thus causing the nozzle to push forward more and have a higher chance of getting jammed.
Note: I did not try adding lubricant, and this jamming only happens when you are firing bbs. I tried testing the jamming issue with empty mags and they would not jam.
Accurate. (I was on par with a sniper or a DMR using .25s from 100+ ft. on a windy day)
Jamming issue that I've stated above. Read More Reviews Write a Review
