KJW Full Metal M9A1 Gas Blowback Airsoft Pistol - Black
by Adam S. Date Added: December 3, 2008
I got this pistol for my birthday, which is July 4th, and I have liked it a lot. I have had a couple problems with it, but it sure is fun to play with it.

It came very nicely packaged in a nice, colorful box which is kind of nice. I assured me that it was protected on the way here. I pulled it out of the box and the first thing I noticed was how heavy it was, then came the cold feeling of the metal.

The gun is very balanced and works almost like the real thing. The blowback would be better with the upgraded recoil spring, but is decent for now. The saftey is ambidexterious and works fine with a nice red dot to let you know if it is on safe or not. The hammer works like the real thing, and sounds amazing. It has a half-cock feature, which I am not sure what it is for, and a fully cocked setting. When you pull the hammer back the trigger comes back with it, making the trigger pull shorter and easier. The grips are a plastic-feeling type and feel really good when you put the gun in your hand. It is really easy to field strip, just like the real gun. Overall, this gun is a blast even when you don't have any bb's or gas in it.

This gun is a little different on the preformance side. I have only gotten a chance to use CO2 which makes the gun preform very good. The blowback is quite strong and fun to play with. I can usually get 2-3 mags out of 1 CO2 cartrige.

I have only encountered a couple problems with this gun, however, one was quite significant. The first problem was the sights are white and get hard to see over time. I can only imagine how hard it would be to see them in a night game. This I can deal with though. The big problem i have had with it is the gas coming out of the barrel of the gun. It wouldnt stop coming out the front until it was all gone. I could get about 2-5 shots out of one cartrige of CO2 and then it would all leak out of the front. Even though it looked really cool, It was really annoying to loose all of my CO2 and to not be able to use it in skirmishes. Eventually, I decided to lube it up really good with a little silicone and it started working almost like new again. The moral of this story is, if you get this gun, make sure you buy silicone oil with it (go to youtube to search for some how to keep your pistol working vids). It will keep your gun working like new and you should have no problems. Even though it didn't work, I still could get a couple "Saftey Kills" with it because it looked really cool and was quite intimidating.

Anyways, I would suggest this gun to M9 lovers and anyone who just wants a pretty good gun.

Be sure to take care of your gun, and it will take care of you.
