Of the 3 gas M9s that I own, this was the first one. I bought it two years ago while I was in Asia and it was the first quality pistol that I owned. When I shot it for the first time, I was just I awestruck. Being used to springer handguns, the sound, recoil, and realism blew me away! When I later decided to move up market for a better pistol, I opted for a KWA m9 ptp, and while it had better externals, it didn't match the WE in terms of recoil, accuracy, and gas consumption. Not to mention the WE was half of the price of the KWA :)
Overall, the WE M9 is an excellent pistol for both beginners and for experienced players.
1. Great kick
2. Half the price of a KWA m9.
3. Accurate for a pistol
4. Good gas efficiency
5. Looks really nice.
6. Marui compatible
7. Rubberized grips
1. Made out of pot metal, but hey, it's only $80.
2. WE tends to make leaking mags, as my spare leaks a lot. The mag that came with the gun is excellent however.
3. Paint finish seems to wear off easily.
Nothing else! This m9 is just another quality gun from WE.
