In the pro-shop i'm not seeing anything for the M series pistols.
Did I miss something, or am I blind?  I was looking for the part number for the screw that holds the blowback unit in place.  Also buying some other parts.
Does this mean KWA is not carrying those parts anymore?  If you guys aren't carrying them anymore I'm going to send a pack of nuns with yard sticks your way.

The M Series parts are withdrawn to limited use, so they are no longer available.  We may still be able to conduct RMA use.

I'll be fair though, if you need the part, it's the same size as the new type grip plate screws on the new KM4 series

Btw, The Sisters said hi, they wanted to trade yard sticks for guns  :icecream:

Thanks a bunch for the update...
I am really disappointed though that its coming down to this with the M series.  Its been a sidearm of choice for the past 5 years..

Also what about the cylinder.  Is there any other gun that has the same cylinder.
Boo...looks like I'm going to have to head to another sidearm..
meh...ill have to get used to the KP45..

Those nice folks own a trade dress protection on the product's form.  If you'd like, you can contact them and ask if they have an alternative.

Is the blow back unit and cylinder in the M19 compatible with the M17?
In the diagrams of both models they look to use the same, and I wanted to make sure it would work.

What i would like to know is why KWA no longer provides replacement parts, even though many people still own these guns (and as they age, parts tend to break).

Yes, I bought a M17 cylinder for my M19 and it seemed to work.

replacement parts are made in the cycles of manufacturing the core gun.  Since the gun is no longer in production, the parts for it have also ceased.

Not sure if i should start a new topic since this is a little besides the point but here goes...

I've been looking at KSC guns and what they have done is change the "G" glock logo on the slide. Why is this a valid change when you said that it was the form which is trade dress protected? Does this only apply to USA companies such as KWA?

To my understanding, the "G" Mark is trademarked in Japan.  Not so much for the trade dress.   But since they're outside our region, there's no sure answer as to what they can get as we operate separately.  

Official status on this series is discontinued.
