I would like to share my introduction to KWA products. After extensive research I settled on a KWA M9 and a M4. My needs are unique in that I conduct training throughout the United States for both military and law enforcement. After having served in the U.S. Marine Corps, I became a Law Enforcement Officer, I have been a trainer for 43 years. Hence, I am not only demanding but hard on my equipment.


After speaking with several vendors and admittedly playing the role of a novice. I selected Full Auto Airsoft Inc. 203, Kinderkamack Road, Emerson, N.J. 201-483-9737. Even though there were several venders closer to my home. I am of the opinion Full Auto Airsoft was worth the 1.5 hour drive.

After placing my order on the phone. John, the owner, kept me advised via E-mail as to the status of my order.


John, allowed me to arrange a time of my choosing for the pick up of my selections. I was pleased to find that he had cleaned & test fired my purchases.


John spent over 2 hours with me, entertaining my questions, explaining & demostrationing operation and maintenance. John shared with me many of the secrets of air soft gleaned from his years of experience. His emphasis on safety was impressive and informative.


Following my lesson, John required me to demonstrate to his satisfaction that; I had absorbed his key points. John then allowed me to fire my purchases on his range.

I was pleased to find an e mail from John summarizing my purchases and thanking me for business.

My introduction to the Air Soft Community has been pleasant, informative and professional. May I add in my opinion anyone considering a KWA product should include Full Auto Airsoft Inc.

Welcome to the Forums. Please take the opportunity in the coming weeks to put your KWA guns through their paces and see what they can do. All new AEG's shoot out excess gearbox grease. So be advised to clean you inner barrel properly and thoroughly. Check out all the stickies and get to know what your guns can do.

Which KWA "M4" did you get?

I use my airsoft guns to simulate my "duty" weapons without the expense of ammo and driving to the range.

Chuck, I am with you brother on value of air soft!  I purchased a KWA LM4 PTR.  I did OPOTA training in the Cleveland area in Oct.

The U.S. Army did extensive studies on the value of sub caliber practice in the 60’s.  In the Marines we trained with BB guns.  The only component of shooting one misses when using a quality air soft product is recoil control.

The KWA products I have purchased all run like the real deal.

Regards, Black Rock

I put a cut-down 19 pound mainspring in my M9-PTP to get the trigger weight up.  DA weight is now just under 8 pounds.  Still a tad too light in SA (under 4 pounds).  My 9mm Beretta 92s all use 19# M1911 mainsprings and have DA triggers in the 7.5 pound range with completely reliable ignition of USGI M882 Ball and Winchester 147gr Ranger T.  This spring comes from years ago when "D" springs were unobtainable.  They're still in there in my personal weapons and probably in several in some unit's arms rack.

Next time you do OPOTA training let me know.  While you were here I was over in Pittsburgh training with Scott Reitz ("Uncle Scotty") in October.  Reitz is an encyclopedia of practical gunfighting.  Get his book.  We had him in for Low Light (Friday) and Problem Solving Tactics (Saturday and Sunday).  We hope to bring him back again next year.

I plead guilty to running a M1911 all three days rather than a M9.  This was a class of very experienced shooters and as I recall the class was all but one split 50-50 between M1911s and Glocks.  Reitz carries a M1911.  We had a NYC policeman in the course who was stuck firing his duty SIG with an 18 pound trigger.  Probably an exaggeration but it sure felt like it.  Oh, yeah, it was DAO.  And police administrators wonder why their policemen can't hit anything!

I'm still fiddling with my KWA Mark I PTP to allow it to close the slide by racking it.
