"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.
Solid external build quality
2GX hopup bucking
Plastic lower reciever "Overall this is an amazing rifle. It shoots fantastic, accurately, with no feeding
problems and is incredibly customizable. Do note however that tis gun shoots OVER
350 FPS and a lot of fields, including my own, did not let me use this rifle until I
swapped out the barrel. "This gun is the best.
KWA 2gx gearbox
rate of fire is great
its a KWA, the best M4 on the market
the cylinder sucks- replace it with the original KWA M33 cylinder @kwausa.com, and your fps goes to 380-390 with the m120 spring already in the gearbox.
polymer lower reciever cracked for me in about a month of light use, without drops (replace with a KWA metal lower, works just fine now)
overall 9/10 "Amazing gun, no feeding issues at all. The fps is decent and great for CQB, while the rate of fire is amazing. the only thing could be a little bit more range but that is really it. "Pros:
Great for cqb limits
RoF is pretty great with a 9.4v nimh
works great stock!
polymer lower receiver (can be pro for some)
plastic hand guard (can be pro for some)
stock is a little bit wobbly "I have been playing competitive airsoft for about 3 years and I wanted yet another gun to upgrade externally. I picked this gun because it is affordable and reliable. One of my friends bought this gun about a year ago and it is working perfectly on a 9.6v battery without any upgrades. I have been running it on a 11.1 lipo for a while and have not had to upgrade or repair anything. My first impression of this gun was good. I liked the metal upper receiver and the 2gx gearbox. When I shot it on a 9.6 it was much faster than I expected. So i put my 11.1 lipo in it and it was shooting about 23 rounds per second. The accuracy on the gun is nothing great but is is good for cqb. I am planning to put a madbull 6.02 inner barrel into it. This gun has a cqb fps so I might upgrade it but I have used it in bigger fields up against 420 fps guns and the range was great. I would highly recommend this gun to any airsofter. I play competitively on teams and this gun is definitely problably the best sub $200 gun I have ever seen/used. Some people say that kwa makes bad guns but they are most definitely wrong and most do not even own a kwa (their just jealous).
nice fps for cqb
same great gearbox as the $300 400 kwa guns
rate of fire is crazy high
overall great gun
plastic lower receiver
magwell is tight
fps (for some)
inner barrel (for outdoor/milsim)
standard m4 furniture "it a reallly awosme gun i still have my for about almost two years now it still kicking booty "First of all this is a great gun. If you are having trouble with miss feeds or it seems BBS went getting any power it is because your barrel is dirty it happened to me.
Great for cqb
Sights are nice
Cons:gears are not spring loaded (don't shim them selves)
Not tm compatible
Not polar star compatible (could be with some upgrades)
Kwa has really gone down on quality the gearbox is not the same as there original 2gx it has lower grade parts same for any newer kwa models they changed there 6.03 to 6.05 to lower accuracy they have really let me down. Still a good starter gun. "PROS:
comes with great mid cap
great reaalism has gas stopper in the front some m4s dont the real m4s do as a owner of a real m4
great for cqb \
accurate as hell a lot more then my combat machine
easy to bring back delta ring so you could switch handguard to rails with complete ease
goes best with 0.25
one of THEE best guns to build off of. (i mean upgrade is easy... rails is easy to install could use in all fields so now downgrade so you dont get bummed about it
has great range a LOT btetter then my downgraded guns.
plastic reciever (you dont mind until you take it apart)
bad cylynder which is neccesary but could be better
battery hog i mean like extremly bad i used a tenergy 1600 9.6v nunchunk. my combat machine lasted longer.
THIS ONE DOES NOT COUNT BUT HEH HEH HEH
Wish it came with a ris. "this gun is worth the money you pay for it. out of the box it is shooting 350 fps(was useing an 8.4 battery.)
the gun is very heavy and will take some getting used too.would suggest getting more mags for it dont get hicaps they are hard to get out of the mag well. upper is metal lower is a carbon fiber polymer. has a high rate of fire in full. need to buy battery seperate
great in cqb games
should be made ambidextrious for us lefty shooters
should come with battery
over all i loved this gun some much and im happy that i got it from evike. my mom even wants one now.
gets 10 out of 5 "All I can say is: wow.
This gun met all of my expectations.
Even with a 9.6v this gun is shooting 20 rps.
Flawless K120 motor
Fps is great in regular temperatures
Sights come off easily
I hate the handguard, probs gonna get a peq - 15 for it
The battery is so hard to get in and out
Cheap red paint on tip of barrel
Overall, this gun is very good. Great accuracy, and great motor. Since it is lipo ready, and attachments go on it easily, I can't wait to see what this gun will do for me in the future.
P.S. - Get a Peq for it, the handguard is so annoying "After having this gun for a few months now, I have to say that I am pretty impressed with it so far.
The gun is very reliable, I have had no jamming issues or feeding issues whatsoever, but I did have a motor height problem. My guns motor was way too high, make sure it doesnt sound really loud and sounds clean because it can slowly ruin the gears after hard use. I also installed a 12" RIS and it fits with about
1-1/2 to spare. But I do wish that I had bought the MOD2 after a while because going around corners in my CQB Arena is kinda difficult.
One of the best and toughest Gearboxes on the market
Shots nice and clean
No feeding issues with the K120's at all
Sturdy polymer lower and metal upper
The barrel is made from a strong metal, probably steel
Fast stock ROF
Nice add on with the fake gas tube
Easy field stripping
Front Triangle Sight is almost impossible to get off
The motor was sitting too high when I bought it (not KWAs problem)
these cons are nothing compared to the pros on this gun, so
just purchase this gun already and stop wasting time! Displaying
