    Just saying but you would probably want to put a tightbore if you want 200 feet accuracy, also a DMR isn't really a stock gun. Now if the magpul you are referring to is PTS then really any airsoft m4 with a buffer tube will take it, handguard you will need a real style delta ring (I believe others tell me different) either way KWA has a real steel delta ring so it won't matter, although you will have to get the right size. Fast trigger response I hear you would want a Lipo and a mosfet for that, but I'm not too experienced in that area and will let someone else add more.

    You can go DMR with a KM16. It should shoot between 400 and 410 FPS right out of the box. KWA's are also very reliable. When your FPS eventually begins to drop off, just replace the piston o-ring and it will probably come back up. By the way, you can upgrade the 2GX gearbox fairly easily. Only the gearbox shell and nozzle are truly proprietary. I've upgraded the spring, piston and piston head in the gearbox with no problem.

    If you go DMR, I'd switch out the 2G bucking with a PDI W-Hold. Much better range and accuracy. I'd also look into a PDI 6.01 tightbore barrel. Replace the bucking first. It will have a far greater impact on range and accuracy than a tightbore barrel.

    If you want better trigger response, you'll probably want to go lipo. If you do, be sure to install a MOSFET to protect your trigger contacts.

    I've replaced the stock fore-end on a KM4A1 with Magpul MOE fore-end. The full length one should fit the KM16. I don't know if I would replace the full stock with one from Magpul. I believe the KM16 is wired to the rear.
