This is my review of the KJ Works KP-06. I got this gun in August and feel it is time to write a review.
For those of you who don't like reading, this is the short review.
Get this gun. It is great and won't disappoint.
Now for the real review.
Packaging: This gun comes in a simple black box with an ultra-matte finish. It gives you the model number and some safety information. The box is about 2" tall, 12" wide and 7" deep. Once you remove the top of the box, there is a foam insert with the gun and some goodies. Before you can see the gun, there is a lot of paperwork on top of it. You get the chronograph reading from GI, the manual and a KJ Works product catalog. My pistol came shooting at ~330 FPS with green gas and .20g BB's. The product catalog just shows specs and fancy pictures of KJ Works higher quality stuff. The manual reads "KP-06 Manual" on the cover and has a glossier finish than the box. The first page shows the comical safety cartoons and warnings. The writing though, is very nice and not the usual broken-up chinglish. Between the first two pages, there are three small paper targets. I suppose KJ Works threw those in to aid the adjustment of the hop-up. On the next page, there is a set of instructions on how to fill the magazine and fire. There is also a detailed disassembly guide and a guide to the hop-up. The last two pages have an exploded drawing and a parts list. Under that mound of paper, you get to the last two things in the box. A box of BB's and the gun itself. The BB's look like they're good quality, I'd say it's safe to use them.
External review: Once you finally remove the gun from the box, you will be amazed at how sturdy and heavy it is. The entire gun has a nice matte black finish, aside from a few chromed pieces. This gun is based off a Western Arms Infinity 6", but it has some major improvements. The first of these is fact that this gun is full metal. The slide, outer barrel and chassis are metal, but the lower receiver is made of a nice rigid polymer, just like the real hi-capa. This gun has an extended six-inch slide plus an extended magwell, so its gun is huge (think Desert Eagle). The extended magwell is silver, and helps aid in fast reloading because its color stands out and it channels the magazine into the grip. The grip has a nice texture, is rough, and grips your hand very well. This gun has an extended slide release and an ambidextrous safety for easy operation. This gun is equipped with fiber-optic night sights, which are fully adjustable; this is a nice feature to have because now you don’t have to buy a pair to replace the plastic garbage sights found on some pistols. The only problem I have had with this gun is the slight amount of wobble on the front of the slide. It only moves about 1/8 of a centimeter, but it is still annoying.
Shooting: If I could sum up the shooting experience of this gun in one word, it would be fun. This gun is just a blast to shoot. It has snappy recoil and lots of metal clicks and clanks. The gas economy is also great, on a good day I can get about two full magazines worth of BB’s (60 shots) out of one fill-up. The accuracy is nice too, on my first game with this gun I got a 100+ foot kill, but it was kind of a lucky shot. The insides of this gun are reinforced to handle high-pressure gasses such as Co2 and red gas. This gun has an extended spring guide and a powerful recoil spring. It also has reinforced gas/loading nozzle. All in all this gun shoots like a champ.
Conclusion: If you want a hard-hitting, accurate and realistic gun with excellent internals and externals, this is for you. It is much better than a We-Tech and it only costs $135. This gun can easily compete with a KWA handgun (I would know because I own one.)This is the KJW’s top-of-the-line gun and it surpasses anything else they have made.
Wobbly Slide(very minor)
