Remember when Evike sold supposed KWA M18c lower frames and upper slides?

Well look at this:

They did it again. but why? is it because these are legit KWA parts/products?

It's got to be a KSC that they got from overseas.

I agree with Niko especially since the M19 has "Mil Spec..." written on it.  The old M series M19 did not have that on the lower on the US version.  The trigger safety is another giveaway.  The KSC had it and the KWA did not in the US market.  Though it was a cool little upgrade on the M series if you could find it.

The lowers look like KSC's.
The M19 has trades on it so I'm thinking it's KSC also because it has the trigger safety (Same on M17).
The slides however I can't tell.

Like the Moderators above me said, They never shipped any to Evike.

I also agree with Niko, only KSC/KWA manufactured the M19. No other company made a copy of the M19. Please lock topic

Hmmm wel KSC is a respectable company. I may just pick up the M17 frame and slide some time so that I can finally have a Glo-........ M series :innocent:

Not saying that Evike's M Series parts are fake, but be aware that there many counterfeit KSC G's circulating the market. Perhaps you'd be surprised if you knew earlier that a few reputable retailers even stocked counterfeit KSC's, labeling them as the real KSC's.

I have seen this with magpul stuff as well. Just be careful.

Talking about magpul stuff, I bought an FPG kit from a forum member, and it turns out to be fake.  I tried to put on the slide from the M18c, and the slide wouldn't slide easily and the valve knocker is about 1/2in above the valve of the mag...

Just goes to shows you that you gotta buy from a reputable, and even then, you still have to be careful and do your research.
