Sorry if i'm posting this in the wrong place I didn't know where else to put it.

Okay so within a few months i will definately be getting one of these guns, what i don't know is which one is the best buy for a secondary- i want something unique and that i will also be able to use as a primary if the battery dies in my sr10. So my questions are, which one is the most affordable and the best bang for my buck? which one would work best as a secondary or occasional primary? and what your oppinion is on the guns and why.

thanks ahead of time and sorry if its posted in the wrong place  :rofl:

i don't think you put your post is in the the wrong spot but i do think you should take other posts lightly because people don't know any thing about the mpk9 for it has not hit the market yet. the people you should trust are the mods the admins and the kwa staff like radix, allizard, or spiggy. people who know that information. but if there are posts obout the m11a1 or mp7 you sould read obout those because those have hit the market. i personally like the mp7 over the m11a1 because it has a metal body and i like the fps, feel, and the look... it's very hot and sexy. :dribble:

First, i would like to clear up that the MP7 does not have a metal body.  Now, I own the Mp7 and I can definitely say that its an awesome gun.  I can also give you a few reasons why its preferable over the m11.  First off, it has a full size retractable stock, not a mini stock like the m11.  Secondly, its powerful and its range and accuracy is comparable to an average AEG.  Third and most importantly, is its use as a side arm.  I believe it to be a better secondary due to the different magazines available.  If you want it slung on a single point sling or in a holster, you can use the 20 round short magazines which sit flush with the pistol grip, if you carried the m11, most likely you would not carry it with the magazine in the gun because it sticks out a lot and can get knocked out easily, therefore it will be slower to use in a pinch.  Plus, if you want to use the mp7 as a primary, you can use the long 40 round magazines.  Overall, I think most people would agree that the mp7 is the better choice for a secondary or primary.  However if you want a gun just for fun, either will do, GBB smgs made me quit AEGs.

I use the MP7 as my primary and I think its great. I think its too bulky and heavy to be a secondary if you're anything but a sniper. If you're a sniper then you're more stationary and size and weight aren't such an issue.

If you need a secondary I would get the M11a1 w/NS2 because its smaller and feasibly holstered and ran with. One can holster the MP7 but its just so dang heavy!!
I would get the KMP9 because its new and it looks awesome. The KMP9 would fufill you're desire to be unique and it looks like it could be a backup primary.

So, in conclusion, considering all your requirements, I personally would go with the KMP9, for sure! :icecream:

ya i dont think im ever getting an aeg and it dosnt matter for me cause im a sniper and will always be one i just love it to much. and its great cause i get to have my assortment of gbb pistols and SMGs so i dont ever have to get an aeg.

But anyway the mp7 is a great gun withh all sorts of nice features and when i have it holstered in my pantac mp7 holster i can have the 20rnd mag in ready to fire if te need arises if my position is compromised. And it doesnt why me down you attach the holster to the belt on your vest so your shoulders talk most of the wieght. Also I dont have to spend so much on mags cause i use my sniper most of the time. so if your a sniper gbbs are the way to go.

Anyway, I would definatly reccomend the mp7 it is a masterpiece and will scare the crap out of your enemy why you unleash it onto them. :thumbsup:

oh boy, what am best... what am best...

Buy all 3.  Keep me employed :thumbsup:


In all seriousness, no one can tell you what's the best.  You need to handle all 3 to make that determination.  No one has the same hands as you do.

As much as I like my MP7, I'm only taking my super duper m11 for CQB skirmish.  It's got an extended EDGI inner barrel.   :thumbsup:

The EDGI barrel you have in your M11.  Is there one thats compatible like that for the Mp7.  Where could I get one if it works out with an Mp7?

We are planning to order some custom barrel for MP7.  Problem is, we need a reliable barrel extension to determine what length we want the inner barrel to be.

You are killing me with that one. :sigh:

There's no doubt which one I like...look at the signature. Though, for CQB I bet that KMP9 will be sweet!
