Hi there,
I'm new to this forum, so don't bite my head off if this has been posted in the wrong place.
I'm looking to start airsoft, and two guns have cropped up that I like the look of. I am looking to buy one  from airsoftworld.net and they are both two tone. I'm talking about the KMA M4A1 2GX and the KWA M4 PDW 2GX. As far as I can tell, the there is no difference in the two guns besides the longer barrel on the M4A1 but there is a £30 price difference. Could someone please enlighten me?

A Personal Defensive Weapon (PDW) will have a very short barrel and a lower muzzle velocity in both real and airsoft configurations.  I've seen 320-330fps quoted for this gun.  I've never seen a KWA PDW but it probably is mechanically the same as the M4A1.  I assume the PDW is more expensive based on both the "kool factor" and low production.

In addition to what Chuck has stated. KWA makes a sport line M4 series called the CQR's, if this is available in your area, I highly recommend picking one up. It will save you money, and will give you the same reliability you will get with the M4A1.
Also, please link the PDW you are talking about!

Hi,
This the 'PDW' rifle that's in question. Doesn't look much of a PDW to me, just a slightly shorter barrel than the standard M4.

That's the KM4A1 CQB model, with the green body to pass some European countries' laws. This gun (and its real steel counterpart) is not considered a PDW... it's a CQBR (Close Quarters Battle Rifle) since it has a 10.3 inch (or close to) barrel.

Here's the KM4-CQB in non-safety green (on top).  It's not a PDW by any stretch, just a shorty barrel.  A standard M4 Carbine below.

Compare to the size of the MP7 which is a true PDW.
