Kjw m1911

I was wondering how reliable this gun would be a smarter choise over the Glocks and M9's that KJW is offering.
I would also get the Co2 mags on ehobbyasia or if those arnt reccommended the Propane ones.

he might be referring to the KJW hi-capa though, KJW calls it a "tactical 1911" or something like that


Regardless, I would never use CO2 in a GBB, The higher pressure is unnecessary FPS IMO, plus, it will just put more strain on your internals

I have had a KJW Hi Capa (Tactical 1911) since I got back to Canada and loved it.

I think a lot of retailers now (007 etc) aren't carrying anymore because it has a metal frame, but if you can find it, buy it; and theres always the classifieds where you can get the all-black.

While I am not an expert, I like it just as much as a Tokyo Marui, except for the stock (clear) grips on the Canadian version. ILLusion has replacements.

DO NOT use the Co2 mags, though, I don't think the slide can handle it.

KJW mags have been known to be tempermental.

Also, when you say 1-2 years, do you mean 1-2 years of play time? Or looking pretty time?

Get plenty of magazines just in case they brake (which they will).
Im not trying to be a pest, but there is a 'edit' button so you can edit your posts.

I would instead buy TM mags. They are of much higher quality then KJW.

The KJW M.E.U is a TM clone, right?
