So many sites put KWA and KSC GBBs together as one brand, but some pistols are marked KSC, some KWA, and some KSC/KWA. Whats the deal? Is there a difference?

Short answer.  
KWA's factory is the OEM (Original Equipemnt Manufacturer) for KSC.  Which means the same factory is making products for KSC. There are some minor difference between KSC and KWA models, but they are two different brands owned by two different companies.

Long answer.
Well.... to much to write.  When I retire I'll probably write something about it.

From an external view... KSC has real steal trades.

It's more than just real steel trades.

Japanese KSC version are for JAPAN region only.  They have real trades because US trade marked laws doesn't apply there.  They are also tuned to shoot under 1 joules and NO METAL slide which required by law.

but ksc guns are so expensive. I guess thier guns are built with high quality control but internal materials are delibratly weaker so you can't use anything but duster gas, because the gun will break so they keep it under 1 joule. but why are they so expensive thats what i wanna know.

Not entirely true. Japanese market KSC guns will run on 134a only, if I remember correctly, and as Allizard said, only have a plastic slide and be under the 1 joule limit. But the Taiwan/rest of Asia market KSC products have metal bodies and slides, real steel trades, no 1 joule limit, and can run on green gas and propane, not sure on Red gas though.

My buddy has a KSC Sig 226, USP, and MK 23 and all shoot beautifully. Also know a few others with KSC stuff. I would love to have KSC guns, but I like KWA USA's warranty in case if gun breaks... not to mention they KWA USA don't work on KSC guns regardless.
