I am so frustrated because I cant decide between the kwa mp7 and the kwa mp9. Both are great guns and one week Im leaning towards the mp7 and the other Im leading towards the mp9. I have decided that I will get what ever gun is more liked on this forum. I love to play cqb but Im in Az and there are not many cqb places here, so I mainly play CQB in california, and Im stuck playing outdoors in AZ. I love to run around and and camp behind enemy lines. I just cant make up my mind, please help!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm linking you to a few of the MP7 vs MP9 threads on this forum. Maybe some of the posts can help get your question answered.

Reading up on these articles will give you a pretty good sense of what these guns are capable of. Note: some of these articles are years old. Improvements have been made to these guns that may make some of the cons listed in the articles obsolete... none of the cons or negatives should be considered when buying these guns... they both perform lovely!!

My two cents: it's all about ergonomics. Which gun feels better to you? ... The biggest thing that bugged me with the MP7 was magazine release button. But the gun had a better trigger, and better feel/grip. But, the MP9's magazine holds nearly 50 rounds, compared to the MP7's 40 round magazines... it's all a compromise. Whichever gun feels better to you should be the one you should get.

I have both.  Both guns have their pluses and minuses.  For a gun to field I personally prefer the MP9.

The MP9 will be a lot easier to find.  Personally I think the MP7 looks cooler though :P

Yeah, but the MP7A1 is "kooler!"  :)  In airsoft and in the real world.  You'll never be able to own either of the real guns so get the one that likes you best.

Plagiarized from another site:  ;)

MP9 > MP7
-MP9 is shorter
-Lighter at almost 1 pound
-Magazines are cheaper
-Sounds better (louder)
-Cheaper at almost a cost of a magazine
-Magazines are not curved
-50rd instead of MP7's 40rds
-Better gas consumption

MP7 > MP9
-Easier hop-up adjustment
-Trademarks
-Longer barrel
-Better stock sights
-You don't have gas shooting into your eye like the MP9
-No gigantic orange tip

This may bug you like it bugs me. The mp7 has a pretty wobbly selector switch, with no define clicks. I still love my mp7 though

That's not true at all. B&T TP9 (Semi auto version) are widely available. As for the MP7, the MP7A1-SF exists and it's all about knowing the right people. If you go SOT route, I've seen both select fire models legally obtained.


As for the OPs question, both are fantastic guns. And actually all KWA guns are great. I use a KWA MP7 because it simply works right out of the box and it's like combining my KAC SR-15 and HK45CT into an airsoft toy. By what you have said OP, I would recomend the MP9 in your case as the MP9 is smaller and lighter and can be used as a secondary. The MP7 can be aswell, but it is significantly bigger.

Pros for both:

MP7
-Much better sights
-Easier to deal with mags. They are smaller and better shaped meaning they take up less room.
-Better controls
-More rail space
-More accurate and longer range

MP9
-Noticably lighter
-More compact
-Better stock
-Easier to find and find mags
-Noticably cheaper priced

Thanks guys Im still waiting for a little more responses though. Im kind of leaning towards the mp9, but Im wondering how cool it looks as a primary compared to other guns. I have an echo 1 m4 that I got 4 months ago but its a little to big, so I want to get a smg primary gun that will work in all situations. I love the mp9 for cqb, but I dont know how it works in woodland and I know that the mp7 does pretty good in woodland, so as I said before, I am very confused.

The MP7 does have a longer barrel and is just as compact.  I think the collapsible stock is better than the folding on all fronts.

I submit that semi-automatic versions of either of these guns ain't the same.  :)  Even paying the SBR tax and waiting months for the stamp.  Same with the Kriss -- pay $2700, wait 6 months for ATF to furnish the tax stamp and you STILL don't have select fire.

Back to the MP7A1 vs MP9 I forgot one item I think is vital:  

Adjustable stock length on the MP7A1.  

I added additional pairs of notches to my MP7A1 sliding stock to bring the gun closer to my body as I find the fully extended position too long.  My modification was done rather crudely, I'm sorry to say, but works.  :)

Really all you need is a decent file and some patience to change the stock length for the MP7.

i had this internal battle with myself and i ended up going with the mp7 because it is far more versatile in the long run as far as NPAS, more rail space, can be very compact when it is collapsed, and over all looks a lot nicer, slimmer, and cleaner than the mp9. the weight in my opinion is not even a notable problem because the mp7 weighs under 4 pounds i think. i use a huge flashlight on mine and still have no problem running it for 12 hours of cqb a day.

as for the mags, they are hard to find now because people who dont know that KWA will still be making them, so everyone is trying to run out and buy them, they will be around again.
also, 40 rounds is more than enough and i usually use more than 2 mags per 10 min round
as for the price, they are expensive, but the build quality is superb and i have never had a single problem with an mp7 mag.

finally the overall gun internalls, is great, i have had two problems internally with 40k+ rounds through it, and it was the cylinder return springs, which is super easy to fix, and a bucking swell, that is also an easy swap.

note that i also run propane which probably led to the swell, but my mp7 still works fine on propane with no noticable wear in any weird places,

i hope this helps!!! and i hope that you make the right choice for yourself, either way your getting a gorgeous KWA!

I wouldn't say the bucking is an easy swap... taking the MP7 apart isn't a fun job.

If you like the look of the mp7 more... then well... get the mp7 lol

I think I want the kwa mp7 because of the look and accuracy, but I really like the rate of fire for the mp9. The thing keeping me away from buying the mp7 is that kwa I think stopped making them and I dont know how this will effect the gun. The thing that keeps me away from buying the mp9 is the look, its cool and all, but I think that most people would think it is a bad gun because of the tip. Is this true, please let me know.

you can still get the KWA one, and i think its really worth it. i can swap a bucking in under 5 mins once you get used to servicing the gun, the firs ttime took me maybe 45 mins.

How good does the kwa mp9 work in woodland compared to the mp7? How cool does the mp9 look when someone is using it compared to the mp7? Sorry, I haven't seen these at my field and I cant hold them so Im deciding between these two guns blindly.
