||WE Full Metal M9 PTP High Power Bad Boy Custom Elite Heavy Weight Airsoft Gas Blowback $115.00:
I was pretty excited to receive my order after all the reading I've done on this gun.
I've been into air-soft since around 1998. I have no problems dissembling, maintaining, modifying, upgrading, whatever my items. Others come to me to fix their stuff & generally pay me in... beverages.
Whenever I get anything new I break it down, check it for broken/missing pieces, clean it, lube it, reassemble, charge, load & ready! I did this & everything looked fine. This item was covered with a light grease from the factory internally, and what I re-lubed it with (light silicone grease).
Claims of Very High FPS, Very Good Accuracy, accurate weight (compared to real), functions like real-steel, ability to handle propane charge, etc. are what made me buy this.
I'm in the military & my crew normally uses the "KWA Full Metal M9 PTP - Professional Training Airsoft Pistol's - $150.00" (and KWA's KM4A1's - which are amazing with a 11.1v lipo!) for training, as they actually function like a real M9.
I figured Id be different, and get this. Maybe leave some nicer welts ;) And save money by using propane (with all the cutbacks majority of training $ is out of pocket nowadays ;/ ).
The Good - It does take cheap propane well.
-It does shoot hard, just ask the guys! Heh.
-It is as accurate as you'd ever need a pistol to be.
-Some like it's looks...
The Bad - It double feeds (meaning you do NOT shoot). I'll just average it to about ever 15 BB's, not
cool at all!
-The safety/de-cocking lever - does not. The KWA's we use do! Actually the safety doesn't even stop
the trigger from being pulled (it doesn't fire if safety is on so that good) just not realistic! OH, and it
takes a LARGE amount of force to even MOVE it from Safe/Fire - and yes I did adjust grub screw.
-The Slide release just flops around on the gun, there is a LOT of play in it! Not good.
-The finish is crap. Ive had mine for about 3 days now and the paint, because I cant even really call it a "finish", is coming off the rails, "safety", and other parts of the gun. Just as if i did not prep the surface & blasted it with spray paint. It just comes off. Crap.
Bottom line, the price I paid for this, I expected much more... Disappointed.
I'm going back to my "KWA M9 PTP".
