If I made the desicions at KWA  and could redesign parts, there are a couple things I would change on this particular gun.

first... Obviously there is a fireing mechanisim issue that causes the gun to only want to fire full auto. those ratchet arms are very thin and as things get loose behind the grip they start to slip and not make positive contact on the teeth. ( this is my take on whats happening ) make them wider and so there is more surface area to catch.

second.... ditch that thin plastic cylinder and and use metal, Aluminum preferably. Yes, the part will cost more, but having numerous failures at the exact same point on the cylinder should be the first indicator the design isnt cutting it and you need something stronger. an aluminum part may cost more, but when added up to warrenty replacements, shipping costs, labor, etc... I'm pretty sure it would pay for itself in short order.

lastly... upgraded parts. for those people that REALLY want a metal barrel and a threaded barrel and a compensator and even some wood (look) grips. just give it to 'em. you get sale in the aftermarket and they get bling and customized guns. everyone's happy.



thats my 2 cents for today.

carry on fellas

Just overall this is pretty amusing. I would really like to know your experience in the coporate airsoft world "Age_N_Treachery" because you speak as if you have been producing airsoft guns for a while. How about you focus on the positive. KWA has been making high quality gas blow backs sidearms for years, the best quality in my opinion. NS2 technology is the best among gas systems availible today. And by some miricle we have also been blessed with their production of AEG's, seeing that they are the only "out of box" lipo-ready AEG's for sale. Plus the customer service at KWA is superb, give them a call and any problem you have will be fixed. THATS MY 2 CENTS!

HAHAHAAHA. dont get the wrong Idea. I love KWA. you guys are amazing as far as airsoft goes. but being an engineer, and also working in customer service before college, I'm just adding a hypothetical "what if".

I think that this is a great example of constructive criticism and who knows it may be something that KWA would look into and actually apply to their products.
(on a side note i think it would be awesome if there was a guy with a big hat doing that xD)

Noted, we will be abandoning all current projects and models to pursue the design of a large chair and a big hat. In addition we vote into a position of power, a single man to lead the company by finger point.  As per the request of the following members.

Once again, we will stop making guns and start making big chairs and hats.
