This is a nice copy of a Knight's Armament Company sound suppressor, and although it's constructed mainly with plastic the unit is of fairly solid build quality; let's not forget most mock suppressors do not come with an inner barrel extension whereas this one does. I wouldn't recommend putting this extension on the stock KWA USP Tactical's outer barrel without exercising caution not to strip the outer barrel's plastic threading.

When mine arrived, I immediately sanded its entire surface and sprayed it solid flat black; sanding it first allows the paint to seep into the plastic surface, thereby reducing paint wear over time and creates a "parkerized" appearance.

The inner barrel isn't quite a true tightbore, so its effect on the gun's accuracy is a bit negligible. I have only tried it, however, on my KWA USP Tactical; it could have greater effect on a Y&P Mk23.

The suppressor comes apart into four pieces when it splits open; two halves of the outer shell, the inner barrel, and the buffer spring. Firing the gun with the suppressor in place sometimes causes it to split apart, spewing its guts all over the place; this can be alleviated easily by applying superglue to the outer edge of the "male" half of the two shells before reassembling it.

4/5.

PROS:

Completes the look of any compatible Mk23 or USP Tactical with 16mm/CW threads
