All of mine are propane powered.
KJW's generally are a solid gun, for the money that you pay. WE is a bit cheap in appearance and parts in comparison. I had to spend a bit of time tightening down screws, bonding loose components together (ambi-safety) and lubricating out of the box. Never an issue with my KJW's out of the box. Mag availability should be better for the KJW P-Series, as they are fully TM compatible. I don't know if that is true for the WE version.
You shouldn't be comparing old gen WE (Hicapa) to new gen WE (Glock, M&P, XDM, PX4) which are actually made by HK3P and are much better quality, and much better, nice crisp guns in general.
