Red face The Hi-Capas... KJW? WE?

Hi guys,

sorry if there's duplicate, but I asked the same thing in another section, but topic of the section isn't really fitting my question.

Which Hi-Capa is the best one? There's KJW and WE(which I think is the US trademark for TM? If someone can explain that would be great).

I saw pictures of the 2 brands, and did research looking at the various models. I like the KJW models because it doesn't have a crappy clear plastic "WE" logo on the gun. But WE has better designs, such as the Dragon line... Are they pretty much all the same? Or is there a model that one can recommend?

I am thinking about KJW Hicapa 06 or WE 5.1... Something I can both game and participate in those TTAC CQC sessions with.

Thanks again,

Definitely get a TM instead. Nothing beats TM quality for GBB pistols, especially their 3rd gen High-Kick, High-Grouping ones, such as the hicapa series.

Hi Ancorp,

Ok so I guess you are talking about the WE Hi-Capas? Sorry just making sure.

Yikes.... WTF then... on most websites, they have it down as WE(Tokyo Mauri). What gives? Maybe because its a clone of TM ones?

So if only WE and KJW are the options then I suppose KJW?

I own a KJW KP05, my first KJW product, Im very impressed with the quality considering the price.

Its very solid and the internals seem very well built compared to my KSC Glocks. The outerbarrel comes loose after 5 or 10 shots, so you need to locktight it to the faux chamber.

There are no trades on it if that matters to you, only 'KJWORKS MADE IN TAIWAN' in a very small type above the trigger area on the frame.

I say go for it.

Im sure the quality of detail on the Tm hi capa is higher, but that 100$ difference is equal 5 magazines for the KJW.

screw the KJW. TM is the absolute best, anything else is wasting your money unless it's a Western Arms (WA)

WE uses shitty pot metal which increases the weight of the slide and also increases the gas consumption due to higher output needed to move the slide. They're also easier to break.

haha, there we go. Nothing beat WA even TM. It's a just a matter that WA turn to be expensive and mostly for hardcore gamer or collector. Ask Safx if you don't believe me.
