KWA or SRC

Hey guys,

What is the better G36C, the one from KWA http://www.albertaairsoft.com/store/...id_product=176 or SRC http://www.albertaairsoft.com/store/...id_product=261 ? Any help would be great.

Thanks.

I wouldn't be all too surprised if KWA re-brands SRC... I know they re-brand KSC when it comes to their GBB's...

Here is the first hand info. KWA was a contract factory in Taiwan that KSC (Japan) had hired, to produce KSC parts and SOME KSC products.

KWA has been making the KSC "Made in Taiwan" products, while KSC Japan makes the KSC "made in Japan" products.

Later KWA started selling products they made with their own brand name "KWA" hence KWA and KSC products are the same. Note, that some KSC models are not made out side of Japan, like Mk23, M93R etc.

Note that the SRCs come upgraded to the tits, so as long as theres some quality parts in there, its a good deal, but WHETHER there is quality there is left to be determined... you can be the guinea pig!

that will change early next year. KWA TW got hit with really bad weather and set their production schedule way behind.

I had a KWA M93R. Was it made in Japan then? The Japanese factory made two version of this pistol?

The KWA's body is fiber reinforced ABS as apposed to the SRC which is nylon fiber mixed with glass fiber. Which is what the real gun is made out of, if what 007 states is true SRC have better externals. Plus you got the metal charging handle and mag release, and personally I think SRC look better. When it comes to Internals I don't know enough about gearboxes to tell you who is better.

KWA guns seem to be famous in the states for their internal quality, and the fact that are "Li-po reedy". i would go with KWA, i have heard pretty amazing things about them.
