Hey guys i was looking today on ASGI and it says now KWA ATP VER 2. I wanted to know what has changed if the performance is now better, anything inside changed? (all i noticed were the letters in black)

And also i wanted to know what will be the difference between the regular ATP and ATP AUTO? like on the outside... if will be the same dimensions and if it will fit serpa holsters etc...

thank you in advance!

Version 2 basically means the current generation of ATP (plus the enhancement at the end of this list): new orange tip at the end of the barrel, dual trigger safety, and most importantly: Laser etched trademarks. (No more white trademarks.)


The difference between the ATP and the ATP auto is that the ATP shoots semi auto, and the ATP has a firing selector on the top of the slide on the left side that can switch firing modes from semi, safe, and full auto. Other than internally being different, the external dimensions are the same I believe, and would fit into the same holsters. From what I understand all ATPs are able to fit inside serpa holsters made for the glock.

The ATP version two is the updated ATP. Its pretty much the same ATP, but with this one, most of the problems that the 1st ATP may have had, have been taken care of with this update.

At this point, no one knows exactly when the ATP Auto is coming out, but I don't think it will be out in the very near future. So, like aaps said, the 2nd version has addressed and fixed the problems the 1st generation had. I suggest going with the 2nd version of the ATP.

The dual trigger safety is basically a trigger on a trigger. (trigception if you get the joke) The trigger on the trigger must be depressed in order to pull the main trigger. It works as a safety just like you must depress the grip safety on 1911 guns in order to pull the trigger. It is just an added safety.

I actually heard from a retailer that they had some ATP auto's on order... Im not sure how much I would trust this information, but you never know!

First, let me point out that everyone above has done a fine job of outlining the changes with the ATP since launch.  Not to cloud the issue and make things more complicated, the ATP has actually gone through three stages at this point.

1. Launch
  • No trigger safety
  • Polymer spring guide (easily replaced)
  • Standard white trades
  • Threaded plastic orange tip - (note: The ATP is not designed for a can on the end so the tip was primarily cosmetic)
2. Second shipment/first revision
  • Integrated trigger safety
  • Metal spring guide
  • Standard white trades
  • Smooth orange tip (cosmetically superior to the original design)
3. Third shipment/second revision
  • All of the features of the second shipment with the addition of "subdued trades" meaning they are no longer bright white.  This is a feature you will see on future KWA guns
Now, there have been internal tweaks to fine tune performance and reliability which I have not outlined.  This is a hallmark of KWA, as a line of guns matures it is continually fine tuned and improved upon.

I hope this helps.

Not necessarily... we don't know how much gas it will 'dump', since we don't have it in our hands! :D

Is a first generation ATP worth getting fixed (trigger will not reset after first shot), or should one take a leap of faith that the latest ATP release is the way to go?  I really liked my ATP for the short time it worked.  Great tool for training for 3 gun, IPSC, weak hand, etc.  Weight and feel does give a fair representation of the real thing.   The price for BBs and gas sure beats the current price for 9mm ammo.

My concern is a fixed first generation will just go bad again.  Would one be better off just dumping money on a new generation ATP then dumping money on repairs on an first generation ATP?

I would suggest sending it in to us for repair so our service center can update your first gen to the latest build. Cost will be nominal compared to a new ATP.  PM our Customer Service Manager "xKingSizex" for details.

I can't confirm that for you, the only true way to confirm is it to give them a call. But since the newest ATP has been on sale for quite a while, and I'm sure Evike gets things out very quickly, I would assume they have the newest one.
