    I'm looking into buying a GBB Glock pistol but I haven't seen any on the market really. I'm looking for a full metal slide, but its okay if the lower receiver is made of polymer. I have a price range of around 200. If I don't get the Glock then I will upgrade my stock KWA CQR. What do you guys suggest I do/the Glock I should look into.

    KSC Glock 17 and a few RA Tech CO2 magazines will give you everything that you want.

    I hate co2, but that's just my preference. Maybe if you were going to use it in cold weather conditions.

    I would say echo 1 timberwolf, so you would have some left over money to upgrade....

    Terrible, terrible gun and I believe it is a WE rebrand. In response to what Leonidas said, I like RA Techs CO2 magazines because the delive a significant performance increase as well as remove the necessity of carrying gas on the field by getting ~100 shots per magazine.

    I personally own an HK3 Glock 18c. It's a nice little piece of equipment to be honest. It has full Glock trades and is select fire. It is compatible with WE as far as mags go, but is a much more solid design than WE's G18c. HK3 is basically a step up from a WE, and is comparable to high end KJW's. It functions as a GBBP should, but does not have the efficiency of a KWA as far as gas consumption goes. On the bright side, upgrade parts are everywhere since it is a TM design. Last note: even real steel Glocks have a polymer lower. The metal slide actually rides on small metal rail panels that are raised slightly higher than the polymer lower. Hope this helps.

    I agree, I prefer green or red gas. I just hate having to carry around so many little cartridges, and having a co2 canister in the middle of the magazine just makes it feel unrealistic.

    Keep in mind shipping. Airsplat also has the KSC Glocks but with another forty dollars and removed trades.

    I personally own this gun, and it's held up good for me. Mags don't leak (for me), good accuracy, you just had to adjust hop up. I don't know, maybe you just heard stuff about a lemon.

    I heard things about it being consistently bad. What GBB's do you own that you are comparing it to? You may have gotten lucky.

    KWA USP Compact. It's not better than the KWA, but it's really up there with it

    With the trades removed possibly. I think airsplat had some of the slides a while ago but I'm not sure.

    I don't know you could always look through airsoft websites and the classifieds.

    These are all quality variants that are available for purchase. As far as finding a pistol with the Glock trades, that's going to be tough here in the states. There are no vendors that have the rights to sell the "Glock" trades. you may find some trades that are similar but not exact.

    We hope this helps you in your search for the gun you are looking for.
