I have a m226 and was wondering if it is or isnt the NS2 gas system.   I have seen some KWA 226 pistols on you tube that has the trademarks in white and are real distinctive.  My 226 tradmarks are real suttle and almost blends in.

There are no non-NS2 226s KWAs that have been made to my knowledge.  KWA list non-NS2 as the following:
KP8
KP45
M17_M34
M18C
M19
M23F
M26C
M9 Series
M93RII
M945

Your subdued trades are indicative of the later mode guns.

Gcw, are you saying that all the KWA 226's are NS2?   What makes a gun an NS2

NS2 refers to the new gas system being used in the replicas. I've had the chance to look at a KP8 and an NS2 USP side by side to see the differences right in front of me. The basic differences I could see without completely taking the guns apart was that the old system had more metal parts in the nozzle assembly and a different way of transferring gas to the 'blow back' action. The new models seem to have more polymer parts in the nozzle area and what seems to be a better way of delivering gas through the system. What I found is that the KP8 was sluggish and had a tough time with rapid shots and feeding issues and bad gas efficiency etc. basically the NS2 seems to be a more refined and efficient way of getting gas where it needs to go. If you've ever used an NS2 gun you'll know what I mean; the crisp blow back, the amazing gas efficiency, the durability. I'm sure somebody else can give a better explanation but that's what I've seen so far, I'm also very happy with the FV system though I think it just has a few growing pains to work out :P

Ooops, just saw my type-o.  It should have read "no non-NS2 226s KWAs that have been made to my knowledge".  Sorry for the confusion.  Post will be corrected.  Also, GP is correct in his post.

Probs you seen a ksc( Japanese company who make them)  , I got an old ksc without frame number and better trades and colour finish and a newer model with frame number, the only visual difference in the system is a smaller stepped out flow hole for the blow back and a more cut away firing pin. They both work as good, but the older non ns 2 has a more powerful hammer spring .
