KSC or TM?

I was wondering which company makes a better GBB Glock 17?

Thanks for your help.

I just got the KSC and I love it. Haven't gamed it yet, But Im really digging the metal Slide and over all quality. I had a choice between the two and picked KSC after a lot of research and asking a few people of their opinions as well. It sounds like both are great pistols, I don't think you could go wrong with either.
Maybe you should get AV'd before worrying about which side arm to pick up...

Talked to people who have owned both the KSC and TM, from what ive heard, KSC is amazing up till about the second year line I think the person said, his and 2 other team mates who bought the same one, broke. Not worth fixing so he sold his off. On the other hand, ive heard nothing but good about the TM, quality build as per TM standards, reliable, feels good in your hand, but the only downside is I dont think it had trades, or a metal slide, but with the TM gbbs ive handled, I thought the plastic was well beyond superior, I thought the 1911 was all metal. My vote goes to TM.

keep in my if you're planning to use injection molded holster (SERPA for example) marui one is not to real dimension, it's bigger. KSC is real dimension.

Informative reviews, but the conclusion does seem quite biased. Possibly if a KSC owner wrote those reviews he would have ended his statement the complete other way around. Favouring the KSC brand over the TM simply because he owns some KSCs and has developed brand loyalty. all in all, a good look into both sidearms.

I own a KSC G19. Love the feel. Haven't had the chance to handle a TM Glock but I have handled what I believed to be a TM M92F as well as a TM Hi-Capa 4.3.

If you're on a budget or are very cost aware and using it as a backup/secondary go with the KSC. If you're thinking of making it a primary or have the cash to spend then none better than the TM. This is however judging based on the feeling of the other TM GBB lines and not specifically their Glock model.

Not sure if KSC parts are compatible in parts but for TM there's tons of aftermarket parts.

I have a TM G17 custom

For Glocks in airsoft. This info is based on guns I own or have owned.
If you want the best airsoft Glock it is the KSC Glock 19. If you really want a Glock 17 though the TM is much newer, has a better hopup, easier to find here and has a crap load of aftermarket parts. The KSC Glock 17 was good though I just ended up liking the TM better.

+1

The KSC Glock 19 is probably one of the nicest Glock out there. Reliable and very nicely made. The heavy weight grip is very realistic. From my personal experience, I would prefer having a KSC Glock 19 over a TM Glock 17 anytime. I also ended up liking the TM Glock 17 better over the KSC Glock 17. But, both guns are good.

Tonnes of stuff out there for the KSC G19:

Metal slides/barrels and recoil springs. PDI makes a piston head for KSC Glocks. There's a few hammer springs out there for KSC as well. There's also the "Rocket Valve" and Hi-Flow valves.

In short no shortage of aftermarket parts for KSC Glocks.

I would really like to do a side by side comparison of the TM and KSC Glocks but like I said I've never dealt with a TM Glock and only have experience with their M92F and Hi-Capa but from what I've seen if they carry over the quality of those pistols to their Glock line then they'll have no problems.
