KWA guns are better than KJW guns. Get age verified and get a TM gun in you can though.

Please do the following, preferably in order:

1) Fill in your profile.
2) Introduce yourself in the Newbie Tank.
3) Read the various FAQs on this site. Use the search field in the upper right corner to find info.
4) Do your research before asking. There's enough threads to help you make your own decision. And there's Google.
5) Get Age Verified.
6) Post your question IFF you can't find what your looking for.

That is all.

It depends on which versions. The KWA System 7 (newest version), would have superior recoil and gas efficiency.

The KJW 1911 is a very solid piece and can take TM mags which is a plus.

Also unless I'm mistaken the KJW is full metal while the KWA version has a plastic outer barrel.

Same as I stated, it will have better gas consumption and slightly more recoil than the KJW. But the KJ can use TM mags which are better than the KWA ones.

IIRC system 7 and NS2 mean the same thing.

What eeyore said above is true ... The TM mags are probably the best you can get... NS2 and system seven are exactly the same thing... I have a kwa usp and the little gas consumption is just amazing.

I also own the kjw MEU which is the exact same as the 1911 exception different rear sight, rail, and the mag has a bumper on the bottom. Shoots so accurately abd consistently. But because of the single stack mag it sucks more gas than a hummer does. The pistol itself is nice and hefty and feels great ... TM compatible as well.

That's not true. It doesn't use more gas because the mag is small. It just isn't able to store as much gas as a Hicapa mag, for example.

Yes you are correct ... I explained this rather poorly... Thanks for clarifying

Also... KWA 1911 cannot take TM mags....

While KWA guns perform better, their mags are hard to find and are expensive... :S

I personally have not been very impressed with KWA pistols. I have a KP45 NS2 and it has not been that great. It barely gets 1 mag off before it runs out of gas and all the mags have a leak in the bottom now. The mags are 2 months old, and I'm disappointed that it would happen this soon especially since they are $40 a piece . I always keep my mags partially gassed in storage. My friend had his M93R break the nozzle in half and eject it out the port. He has had his for about 3 months.

Now that I am done shitting on them. They do have very nice kick. Very quick and responsive. They do have terrible groupings. I was getting about 12" at 10m with 0.25g BB's.

REsealing your mags will take 2 secs...lol

And thats true for the grouping... KWA/KSC hopup isnt great to be honest... TM makes a better hopup unit....

How long are you filling your mags?? and next time you do fill your mags add a few drops of oil to the propane.. if that doesnt work .. take the mags apart take the seals and knocker valve out and let them sit in oil for a day ... should fix the problem right then and there...
