My KJW M9 is the best sidearm I have and use, I love it. All my other KJW sidearms suck ass and are not in game use. I use propane with the KJW M9 because its full metal I have no idea if HFC makes a metal gun or not.

Honestly, every single person who has bought the HFC M9 new has loved it. I've seen 8 different reviews on it, and almost no negative comments (Only one, on the trademarks). The lowest mark was 7 given by someone who ONLY ever used WA pistols, and the rest were almost all perfect (No complaints, everyone loved it, except the markings on the side were kind of unconvincing. It's for shooting, though, so this is excusable).

Due to these reviews, and asking around for a while, everyone who had the HFC M9 (or "M190 Special Forces") loved it to death. They even pursuaded me to buy one (Which is on its way right now!).

Besides, it's fully interchangable with Marui mags and parts for the Marui M9, and (this version) is fully metal. The internals are the same, and so is the performance. I'd recommend it, and so would a lot of people.

Avtomat, what shitty things did you hear about it? I'd like to know, it gets here fairly soon...

I have a HFC M190 and I love it. It is my first GBB so i cant compare it to too many others. I have had no problems with its performance.

Where'd you hear shitty things about it?
I've exhausted just about every web resource, Google, Arnies, and everything, and only had 2 complaints- a leaky mag and a broken trigger spring.
As for the person who made this thread, head up to the Arnies General section, in the forum. Over the last 2 weeks, this thread has been here twice, and the majority answer is always HFC. Besides, they're the same gun... just the HFC doesn't use the monkey metal KJW does, it uses solid steel. I've heard a story of one being run over and still working, yet I'm not too sure its true...
However, from what I've seen, KJW's a workhorse. More people up here have the KJW because of availability, but they do break down after a long while... (as does everything, but there seems to be a few lemons in the KJW lot).

Owned a KJW M9 dam fine pistol, shouldn't of sold it. Feels great to hold and shoot, and with it being metal you can get the propane adaptor to use propane which makes getting gas very easy.

I dont know, my experience with KJW was less than satisfactory (when it comes to M9s).

My first KJ M9 had the habit of dropping the mag when cycled, seriously hurting my baby toe when firing in the basement. As for my 2nd, i found the accuracy sub par.

now my P14, it kicked ass, and I can wait for the single stack version to finaly be released.
