So how does everyone like the M226. I have no clue on how long it has been out but I have recently opened my eyes on the m226 and was wondering if anyone has any major complaints against it.

I have one and it performs extremely well. I have owned 2 of them and they both had the same problem though. For some reason the slide would stick when trying to cycle forwards. I installed a 150% recoil spring and the problem is gone and the gun shoots crisp with solid blowback. Only thing I still dont like is the hammer spring. It seems weak and gives the trigger pull a mushy feel. This isn't as noticeable when you aren't dry firing.

The good news is the latest version of the KM226 has eliminated the hammer bounce (mushy feel).  It's very crisp now.  If you ever need yours serviced, you can have KWA fix this for you.

I sold the gen 1 226 and have the newer one with subdued trades. And yes it doesn't feel nearly as mushy. That's a good point that I didn't bring up thanks.

Thanks guys. So in the end is it worth the $130?
It sounds like it would be but im considering the h&k usp by kwa also. But the m226 has a esier fieldstrip

They are both great guns. Just go with the one that looks the best to you. Any KWA pistol is worth $130.
