    KWA Pistols have a better OOTB experience by comparison, but KJW Pistols are more upgradable and has the potential to outperform KWAs because KJWs are based off of TM design (which by proxy means nearly all TM parts will be compatible). Which one being better overall depends on your needs as a player and your tech-skills with GBB Pistols.

    Depends on what model and goals of either best stock performance, upgradability, etc.
    KJW P226 is better than the KWA 226.
    The rest, KWA wins in stock performance while KJW is much better for upgrades. Who'd want stock performance for the rest of their lives right?
    They are both good IMO. KWA is more user friendly but KJW is great for a little more experienced players in terms of plinking around and swapping internals.

    It really depends, 80% of the time I say KWA, their hop UPS are very consistent, the NS2 gas system is phenomenal, and the QC and customer service was bar none for when I needed them.

    That being said, KJW has its nice niche role, unlike KWA, it is TM compatible making new/upgrade parts a breeze to acquire. The Co2 systems on KJWs are IMO unparalleled for reliability for GBB (not to mention KWA doesn't have any Co2 models). The co2 is great for colder climates where your mags cooldown way too much to even get a mag through. kJWs get about average performance for a gun that price but are overall much better quality than other guns in that price as well

    As stated, KWA does have a few flunk models as well. Most notably is the KWA 226, while in comparison the KJW is an excellent sidearm and definitely a worth TM clone that functions very well.

    o, for me Id say it comes down to the needs of the shooter, I personally have a KJW hicapa co2 for winter, a KWA as a backup to my TM Five-seveN during the summer.

    I did hear the KWA P226 had problems but the KJW P226 wasn't good either both me and my friends' broke so.... KWA and KJW suspended making them and KJW just released a new version and KWA will be releasing a newer model later this month

    Overall KWA makes better guns, BUT there are a few "red-headed" KWA pistols out there that KJW did a better job with.
    Both are great companies and manufactures.

    I often tell budget players to stick with KJW, not only because their guns are a bit lower in price, but also because additional mags are also cheaper.
    But MilSim and gun enthusiast players will greatly appreciate KWA because it's ACTUALLY 1:1 with real steel weapons, where as most other weapons (including KJW) are 1:1 with Tokyo Marui weapons.

    KWA is overrated, they have almost no upgrade parts and are a bi*** to fix when they break.

    No no their gas pistols are decent. Don't assume everything. KWA isn't as bad as you think. They are upgradeable as every other rifle or pistol out there. Minus a few stupid proprietary parts.

    Their pistols cannot be upgraded besides using KWA only parts. They use a proprietary GBB system.

    KWA M9s are the best M9 on the market. My opinion but if you have handled one you should know

    There's a price difference of $55 and trademarks of course KWA wins this one.
