My buddy just picked up an ns2 usp compact and we compared it to our older model.
The internals look more robust(made of a heavier plastic) and the slide is made of a different metal it seems like.
Also it's more gas efficient, firing in 53 degree weather, 1 shot per second we got 58 shots of the ns2 where as we only got 38 shots off the standard. The standard models age may contribute to those numbers though.


Overall it seems they stepped up their game with their ns2 models.

Ouch, my pride......

My kwa kp45 pre ns2 has a lot of pot metal from what I can tell. My spring guide and trigger broke within like 1 1/2 years of owning it, which I suppose it quite a while. Overall, I'd recommend it, but only the ns2 version.

Thanks crazyrussian, that is great news, I was wondering if it was a noticeable difference or just a noticable gimmick. Now for some bad news. Airsoft G.I. contacted me today.

"Dear customer,
Thank you for your recent order. Unfortunately, the following item(s) on your order is out of stock:
1 x KWA M93R W/ Metal Slide NS2 Model Airsoft Gun
At your request, we can keep this item on backorder and ship it to you once available; or we can switch you to a similar and/or different item."

KWA M9 Tactical PTP, here I come. Not my first choice (no burst or auto), but it's a bit more faithful to the U.S. Army Airborne loadout I was going for. ASGI is without a doubt the best airsoft company I have ever worked with. They have kept me updated on my order at every step of the way.

KWA's U.S. website sells replacement parts or you can just ship your gun to them and they will fix it for a reasonable price. (if you haven't thrown it away or fixed it already) just another reason to go with KWA.
In 1931 China banned Alice in Wonderland on the ground that "animals should not use human language" and that it was "disastrous to put animals and human beings on the same level." America should ban idiots for the same reasons.

Just a quick update:
After an email to KWA's customer service (which they responded to the same day) if you order a replacement outer barrel for the PTP line of guns, it will come with an orange tip. darn.

Also, this is from KWA's forum regarding repairs:
KWA Customer Service said:

no, we don't repaint your gun with the blaze orange tip, we don't have time. lol

If you send your pistol in for repairs, I think it is a standard fee of $40.00, no matter what work needs to be done to the gun. Good way to save some money if you've really fraked your gun up. EDIT: I heard they won't service guns that have been run off propane.

Hey everybody. I just had my first big game today in a really long time and I had a great time. However, somewhere along the way, I had to loan my HFC USP to a buddy because his gun broke down on him. As I was handing him he gun and my magazines, one conveniently fell face down and broke on side of the magazine lip off. Are there any compatible or replacement parts?

I did some looking, didn't really find anything, but hope this helps. HFC is a clone of Tokyo Marui and KSC is also a clone so any replacement part for one should fit the others. I found magazine lips for M9's and something else on Evike.com, didn't see any USP, but I wasn't looking very hard. If you have the manual that came with the gun, it might have a part number for that piece, and that might help to narrow the search.

Maruzen

PROS- High quality
Trademarks
high value
Reliable
Cons-
Plastic body, can be pro
Expensive Mags
Cost
Lower powered gas

What to look for- P99/c, PPK, P38, 1911

I heard that the Maruzen P99 was completely terrible and that the slide locked back all the time when you don't want it to. I was pretty dissapointed bcuz i like the p99, but it might have been a different brand. I'm pretty sure it was Maruzen though.
Pro tip - Tokyo Marui gas blowback pistols DO NOT need metal slides to run propane. Trust me I own one.
Follow up - I don't suggest metal propane adapters. The one I had broke my mags in < 3 weeks. Plastic adapters have many more pros than metal ones. Don't believe me? HolyHandGrenade has the most experience on the forum (that I've heard of) with any adapters.

I've seen a lot of bad press on the WE guns, but I bought one anyway, as the real one is my favorite pistol.. I bought the Para Ordnance P14-45 (got it from Redwolf with the trades intact) and I have to say I was impressed with it.. I've run through around 30 mags so far, and no leaks at all. it is a bit heavy as far as most of the other airsoft pistols I've handled, but guess what the P14 is a heavy beast! it has been dead on accurate both before and after installing a set of Trijicon's (from 20' I get a group inside 1" from full mag at rapid fire) I haven't had any issues with broken parts or anything.. the only con is that the hi-cappa replacement mags have a thicker base and so th gun looks different with the replacement mags.. I run it on Coleman Propane with the Airsoft Innovations adapter and just throw a few drops of silicone in the adapter.. I also put a couple drops down in the mag to lube the bb's, and then lube the gun the same as the real steel (well, as much as can be the same) off a single fill I can run about 1.5 - 1.75 mags worth of bbs in high speed firing (empty the mag, then reload it with bb's without reloading the gas)

all in all it has been a good one to me (though not as fun as the real steel)

and yes, I picked the WE over the WA because it's metal.. I looked everywhere and couldn't find a metal kit for the P14 with the trades, and so the WA loses that battle..
