    I want a sidearm, and I have some restricitons. I want something that is under $150, not WE, affordable mags, readily available kydex holsters (serpa, gcode etc). I like KJW and KWA a lot, and I think I want either a KJW SIG 226, because of the ergonomics, or a KWA ATP, for practicality.

    The KWA ATP may be ergonomically sexy, but there has been some problems with some of the models. Im not sure which models they are. However, ive heard they are some good gbb pistols. So the ATP may or may not be a good choice of sidearm.

    The kwa atp version 1 was terrible. It had an amazing feel to it, and outstanding gas consumption, however there were very many problems with it. I only had it for a week before mine went down. BUT, the Kwa atp version 2, is pure beauty. All that was different between the models are the blacked out trades, and every single problem that the first one had has been fixed. I bought both models because of how much I liked the gun. Mines been kicking strong for a Long time.

    Though I've never owned the ATP, I can say nothing but good things about the KJW p226. Had a decent gas consumption, great feel, I'm a fan of the de-cocking lever. I believe it is TM compatible with mags as well which will make getting a good mag pretty easy.

    Would you consider a KJW M1911 MEU? They're a very nice sidearm, comes with a green-gas and CO2 mag, ergonomic, classic look of a 1911 with the modern tactical grips. Good gas consumption, $120-$130, decent recoil

    I love RS 1911s, but the low mag cap isn't my taste for airsoft, I like to have lots of ammo in my mags, I don't really go for realism, although I have a 1911 SERPA lying around.

    Ew ATPs... They look aweful, but thats my opinion. I would suggest the KJW G23, awesome gun.

    Well, I think I've come to a decision. The KJW P226 is what I'm going for for several reasons:
    • Cheaper mags, same capacity (226 $28, ATP $40)
    • Way better ergonomics, Glocks are blocky
    • SIG SAUER trades

    The mags hold 21+1 rounds, that's enough between the two magazines it may or may not come with, depending on the model
