    I am currently in need of a secondary and I am trying to decide between these two guns.

    KWA Full Metal M9 PTP GBB

    or

    Socom Gear Full Metal M9 PTP GBB

    Anybody have any opinions on either or know of a better gun for the price. Any response will be appreciated.

    KWA

    NS2 gas system, full metal slide, KWA GBB quality, but like all M9s, trigger spring will be a worry point.

    The SG I believe is just a WE (or similar) rebrand.

    Like sniperfifer said, get the KWA. It is at least ten times better than the Socom Gear.

    There are problems with almost every WE gun.

    I agree with shiftyshooter. I've had multiple we s and they ALWAYS have major problems. we makes socom gear so don t get it.I have a kwa m9ptp and it is flawless. nice, crisp blowback cycles, great range, great accuracy, and very reliable.
    hope I helped!

    I have a KWA PTP NS2 (FOR SALE*cough*cough*) and I can attest that it is the far superior of the two. KWA is definitely known for making great full metal gas pistols that perform excellently stock.

    The only difference is the rail integrated on the bottom, you're not gonna see any changes in performance unless the rail somehow digs up into your outer barrel and prevents cycling somehow.

    The design of the M9 (both real and airsoft) puts a lot of stress on the trigger springs and they are prone to snapping.

    I just have the ptp. the tactical version was like 30 bucks extra for the rail so I just got the m9 ptp. no rail.

    Does this happen often on the kwa M9 or is it unlikely that the trigger spring will break?

    Not to terribly often, KWA's are less prone to snapping a trigger spring than a WE, KJW ect. due to better quality.
