I've had this gun for a little over 2 months now, and used it in several airsoft wars As well as plenty of target practice. Let me say, wow! This is the first gas gun I have purchased in a couple years (now that I've done a lot more research on them and actually know what I'm doing), and I couldn't be more impressed. The entire gun as well as both included magazines are made out of a high quality metal. The gun fully loaded weighs around 4.5 pounds, perfect weight for balancing the blowback and accuracy. However, I will advise to all who plan on carrying this in a holster into combat; the weight will take a bit of getting used to while holstered, particularly on a leg holster.
As far as gas consumption, the KP07 performs great. Both magazines hold 27 rounds; the green gas mag can get up to 1.5 mags before running out of gas, and averages about an entire mag, give or take a few shots. The Co2 however, gets you significantly better usage at a max of 3 mags, and an average of about 2-2.5. There is also a noticeable difference in performance between the two gases. Green gas shoots around 330 fps, and shoots up to 100-110 feet accurately. Co2 shoots at about 350 fps, has a harder kick in the blowback, and shoots 110-125 feet accurately.
On the battlefield, this thing can definitely be intimidating. I've had friends with high end AEGs running from me when they hear me chasing after them with my KP07. The cyclic rate is great, it fires as fast as I can pull the trigger. The power, accuracy, range, and overall intimidation factor of this thing make it a formidable opponent on the battlefield even against AEGs, provide you know how to use your shots wisely (and/or buy a bunch of extra mags).
My biggest problem with this gun was not with the gun itself, but with the Co2 magazine it came with. On several occasions, the gas release button and spring behind it popped out of the magazine during firing. I was able to get it back on, and used the Co2 mag extensively in my most recent airsoft war, and had zero problems with it, so it seems the problem has now fixed itself. As far as on the gun itself.... The orange paint might chip somewhat easily; There's was a tiny chip in it after the first war I brought it out to. Also the right-hand side thumb safety wobbles a tiny bit (which I notice since I am left handed), but still functions perfectly fine so it's no big deal. Lastly, the paint on the back of the gun, where the hammer continually hits, will wear down with time, but that is to be expected.
Overall build quality and performance of this gun, both in practice shooting and in heated battle, is exceptional to say the least. For $125 this deal can't be beat, especially when it includes two magazines. I would highly recommend this to anyone in the market for a GBB.
