I got my KWA KG36C in March of this year (it's not the "new" version), and over the past 4 or so months it's taken quite a beating.  Here's the story...

Shortly after I first got it, I dropped it on my hardwood floor.  No carpet to absorb the impact.  The impact cracked part of the body and the trigger guard.  It hit hard enough that since then if I hold the pistol grip and pull/press hard enough I can "wiggle" the mechbox around.  I was pissed when I did this because I thought for sure I'd just wasted hundreds of dollars on a gun that would now be useless.  But, it kept working just fine.  I figured I was lucky and told myself to be more careful.

Fast forward to a few weeks ago.  I was making a half-assed rig to hold the gun so I could paint the new carry handle I got for it (of course it never occurred to me to just paint the carry handle and THEN mount it).  Once I'd rigged it up I held the rig up, with the gun attached, to make sure it would work.  In another flash of brilliance I did this over my ceramic-tiled kitchen floor.  And of course my rig didn't hold and the gun crashed down to the floor right on the end of the barrel.  This time I thought for sure I'd killed the poor thing.  A couple pieces of plastic from the body of the gun broke off on impact, but I couldn't find anything else visibly wrong with it.  When I took it out last weekend it seemed to be working fine still (though I didn't test it with a fine-toothed comb).

So anyway, this is just a testament to how tough the thing is.  Repeat my carelessness at your own risk, though.

This is the condition it's been in since the first time I dropped it:

It was just the pressure of the whole thing fitting into the body that held it together.  Nevertheless it worked just fine.
