KJW G32c or Marui G17?

Please help me decide which is the best buy? The marui glock17 gbb or the KJW 32c ? I know one is compact and one is not, but they both proly fit nice in my hand, and I can only buy one..

Glock 17 for sure. The handling of it leaves a good feel in your hands, the compact is good too but if you have big hands then definitely do not get it as after awhile it will feel a bit uncomfortable

Also another reason is because the Marui itself has a lot of upgrades for it and if it breaks there are replacement parts for it as well that can be found on the forums here in Canada.

And since I am unsure if you are from Canada and if you are in the states then you are even in more luck for finding even more parts and newer metal slides.

I have big hands but find the TM G17 just fine with Oakley gloves on too.

Depends on hand size I guess.

Me being Asian I have a liking for the compact one because of my small hands. The G32 is effectively a G19 (which is a compact G17).

I have a G19 and it fits nicely in my hands (I can fully grip it and there is no overhang). I will give approximate hand measurements.

Length (wrist to tip of middle finger): 16.5 cm (about 6.5 in)
Avg. Length of finger: 7.7 cm (3 in)
Width of 4 fingers (index, middle, ring, and pinky): 8 cm (3 1/4 in)

No I mean the G32 if you have big hands I noticed some of my friends told me they did not like the compact size

While the Glock 17 fitted big hands very well

Go for the TM.

I've used/seen two KJW G23's and they were both crap that didn't work or stopped working after a short time.
