No, the bolt has a different design.

There are subtle differences between the Asia and US versions of the LM4.  The bolt is one of them.  There were changes that were made to the US design for better function and ATF approval.  The Asia version LM4 was released months before the US version without any of these modifications.

I 'think' it would, but I recall one of my local players bragging about his KSC LM4 that he got way before the KWA release and he then proceeded to break the nozzle within the first magazine. I didn't get a chance to see it up close but I think the KWA nozzle is reinforced and made to last longer. I could be wrong, but regardless I think if you've got a KWA LM4 then stick with KWA parts, mix matching parts will just cause trouble.
