Lets get started with some real world history of the MP9, for those who are interested: The Brügger & Thomet MP9 (Machine Pistol 9mm) is a machine pistol designed and manufactured by Brügger & Thomet of Switzerland. The MP9 is a selective-fire 9x19mm Parabellum caliber machine pistol. It uses 15, 20, 25, 30 round detachable box magazines. The MP9 is a development of the Steyr TMP. Differences from the TMP include a stock that folds to the right side of the weapon, an integrated Picatinny rail, and a new trigger safety. There is also a semi-automatic version called the TP9, which is similar to the SPP in that it lacks a foregrip and instead has a short picatinny rail.
While I am at in I am going to do a quick review of KWA, the company, as a whole.
Customer Service: To be honest I am going to have to say that KWA has the best customer service in an airsoft manufacture that I have seen. A point that I really like about their customer service is the KWA Help Desk where you can troubleshoot problems, create tickets, and view articles that can help you out with whatever you need (Link to helpdesk: http://www.kwausa.com/support/). If you need to talk to someone you can call, email, or fax KWA. KWA says that they pride themselves with exceptional customer service, which is clearly deserved.
Product Quality (opinion): Now, I have used three of KWAs products, all of which I was extremely happy with. KWA always uses good quality materials in the making of their replicas. The internals are also ahead of the competition. Remember, this is still my opinion.
Shipping: The KMP9 was shipped the next day and got to my house the day after that, it was very fast and efficient. I live close to where it was shipped from but you still can't beat shipping the next day.
!What You Have Been Waiting For!
Box: The KMP9 comes in a high quality box that reads "KWA Engineered to Outperform.
Picture of box
What's inside the box: Inside the box is the gun, a 48 round magazine, a warranty sheet, an operator's manual, a questionnaire, a bag of unknown bbs, a hop adjustment tool, 100% silicone oil, and a KWA sticker.
Sticker: Nothing special about the sticker, although it is cool to have and not a bad freebie.
100% Silicone Oil: Very important and often overlooked, this will keep your replica running like new and clean as a whistle. Although one should watch for over lubing, this KMP9 comes with a good amount of factory lube so you really shouldn't need to use this all too much.
Hop Adjustment Tool: Obviously another important item, this is used to adjust your hop up (if you didn't notice) and is essential to get your gun shooting how you want it. If you're new to airsoft and not sure what hopup is feel free to PM me.
Hop Adjustment Tool
Bag of Unknown bbs: I personally wouldn't use these; I would assume they are .25s and fine to use. Although out of habit I tend to not use bbs that come with replicas.
Bag of bbs
I'm going to skip the questionnaire, as there isn't a lot to tell about it.
Operators Manual: One of the best operators manuals I have seen. Perfect English is used, no broken jumbled English here. The manual shows how to adjust the hopup, disassemble the replica, a list of every part with respective number (so that if you lose a part or a part breaks you can order that exact part from the manufacture, AWESOME!), and more information.
Warranty: Another awesome aspect of KWA, the warranty. The warrant covers 45 days in case of problems that you could possibly have, although I don't think you will have many (if any.)
Magazine: This magazine holds A LOT of gas; I can get almost more than 3 magazines full with a full magazine of gas. Magazine is made of metal and very sturdy. Only complaint I have is that when pushing the spring that pushes the bbs up the magazine down sometimes it takes a couple of tries to get it locked into place. This could be fixed by simply making the ridges that the spring is caught in a bit more defined/deeper. KSC MP9 MAGAZINES ARE NOT COMPATIBLE.
