I have been looking into the KWA KMP9 for a while but don't know how well it would perform at the fields I play here in Ohio. Most engagements for me are around 100 feet, so would I be able to get a hit a little pass that distance.  All in all, what have been your experiences of using the kmp9 at outdoor games.


Thank You

My MP7A1 works fine at that range using the stock and rifle sights.  I can put a three round burst on a 9" steel plate easily.  I expect the MP9 will be similar.

similar to chuck i have the mp7 and can say that mine can with a power up extension, and the mp9 should be fine as well.
hope that helps!

Is there a way to get a tight bore barrel for the kmp9? I've already checked the pro shop and they only had barrels for the m9,usp, and m11.

I looked extensively ALL OVER the internet, no luck. Best bet is to call/email a company like EdGi and request a custom made tight bore with your desired length, and order right over email.

No reason to apologize, I just wanted to link the barrel you were talking about just in case anyone was interested in it. ;)

I personally use the KMP9 and I have found that it gives any SMG out there a run for its money.  There are pros and cons between this SMG version others like the MP7 or Vector models.

Of the 3, the MP9 is the lightest SMG and is quick to maneuver around corners and obstacles.  It is also extremely accurate for its short barrel and I have found myself hitting targets across the field at SC Village here in California.  Range for gas guns I feel like are determined primarily by the velocity of the BB, and not so much the length of the barrel.  Although a longer barrel is more accurate, it doesnt necessarily mean that it will shoot further (assuming the FPS for the guns are equal).  However, the installation of a longer barrel will dramatically improve range by increasing the FPS.  Even an addition of just a couple of cm's to the barrel can make the FPS rocket up, therefore increasing your effective range at the cost of higher FPS.

Now were the MP7 wins is the trigger.  It is a lot smoother and lighter than both other models, which makes shooting it quick and efficient.  However, the lower magazine count of 40 rounds really turns me off since the gas mags hold so little to begin with I would want the additional 8-9 rounds. I only run 3 magazines, so that comes out to be about 24 shots i'm missing out on.

The vector is a primo gun.  I run it for the 2 round burst, high accuracy for the short barrel and of course its unique design.  It holds the same number of rounds as the MP9 but is slightly heavier.  This additional weight can work for the gun's advantage.  Let me explain, since the gun is heavier, you will naturally hold it steadier since it will take more force to alter the aim of the gun.  The mp9 is so light that it is quick to aim, however follow up shots from target to target could take more time from shot to shot since the gun is so light that any slight movement from your arms can cause the gun to stray off target.  This concept of a heavier gun can be seen on weapons such as the USP Match, which has a barrel weight added to increase accuracy between shots as the gun moves from target to target.

Of course this is airsoft, so everything I say is relative to each individual user.  These are just somethings that I have found through my playing and use of the different products.  Your mileage my vary from what I've concluded, but they are just some points that I figured could help or make your decision that much harder haha.

Thank you all for your responses I think I'm going to have a fun time when I get the kmp9 and the only reason I'm looking at the mp9 is because I shot the b&t tp9 in las Vegas and really enjoyed the gun so can't wait to order it in the next couple of days.
