KWA really knows what they are doing and they always have so im not surprised that they have released yet another line of phenomenal pistols. the weight is perfect, rail is perfect, looks are out of this world( im glad they minimized the blaze orange paint), magazine is solid, heavy, and does not wobble in the mag and the trademarks look great. I am very glad to finally have a 1911 that can hold enough gas to fire all the bbs in the mag.
now for the bad: this pistol performs flawlessly on propane with .25 gram bbs. it holds enough propane from a half empty tank to fire almost 2 mags worth of bbs (28 rounds) but when i fill this mag with green gas it barely gets through 12, and the slide doesent lock on the last shot because not enough pressure is left to push the slide back far enough. another issue i have with it is that when i load the mag with 14 bbs, after the first shot, the loading nozzle pushes down the bbs so that the follower locks again and it stops loading bbs so then i have to take the mag out and push the button on the follower to push the bbs back up. this is not a huge problem because it just means that i just only load 13 bbs in but its still a bit of a disappointment.
I own 8 KWA pistols and 7 of them are NS2 and this is not the best one but as far as realism, attention to detail, and looks this gun gets an A+
performance gets a B-
one last gripe i have is not with this pistol but with all NS2 KWA pistols: they shoot way too hard. 380 fps is totally unnecessary for a pistol, the reason im upset about this is that I have 1000 dollars worth of KWA pistols and I cant use any of them at the only venue near my house because it is CQB and the fps limit is 320 with a .20 gram bb. my KP45 shoots 385 fps with a .25 gram bb and that is just ridiculous but i still continue buying KWA products because I truly believe that they outshine the competition hands down. it is the best bang for your buck over the full spectrum of gas pistols out there i believe and so i will always be a loyal KWA customer.
excellent products, and superb customer service and prices = happy customer
minimal blaze orange
performance is somewhat lacking on green gas
mag follower locks again after first shot when loaded with 14 rounds
NS2 system is quite gas efficient but it increases velocity too much
