Starting with finding out the raw real world power for the KJWorks KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol, I performed the Chronograph Test using my CaldwellBallistic Precision Chronograph and put 6 shots through it using a brand new 12 gram CO2 along with .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB’s. I was able to average 350 fps which is pretty decent considering it was only around 15 degrees Celsius (60 degrees Fahrenheit). In warmer summer conditions I am sure we would easily reach around 360-370+fps.
Next up I placed a paper target on my ammo trap 30 feet down range and shot off 10 steady paced rounds to see what kind of grouping I could get from the KJWorks KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol. There is always going to be a bit of human factor involved since my Airguns are not braced in a vice or hold of any kind other than my two handed rested grip. (Sandbag upfront, sitting on a stool in the back). I was pleased to see a roughly 3 inch grouping on the target. There was one BB that did shoot a little bit higher then the rest of the grouping otherwise it would have been closer to a 2 inch grouping. I di notice that I was shooting a bit under the bullseye but this could are easily rectified by adjusting the hope slightly to add some more backspin to the Airsoft BB.
All in all I really like the KJWorks KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol, it looks great, is well built, is not going to come in super heavy and seems to perform very well in terms of power and accuracy. I have always been a fan of the 1911 pistol and I like that KJWORKS didn’t deviate too much form the original A1 look and feel with this slightly more tactical version. It still looks and feels like a classic 1911 but is upgraded enough to keep the weight down while adding in a double stack styled magazine with more overall tactical features.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the KJWORKS KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol is what you would expect from a true 1911 single action only trigger, it has very little take up with a smooth crisp and light release to it The grip safety like a real 1911 also works on the KJWORKS KP-08 so it will needed to be engage in order for the trigger to function.
Accuracy: I have not shot the KJWORKS KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol so far but plan to do so this week so I can have my Full Field Test Shooting Video Review for you ASAP. Keep posted as I this is next on my list!
Build Quality: I have always been extremely impressed with the build quality of all the KJWORKS Airsoft guns to date. The fit and finish is the best around compared with any of my airguns including my 4.5mm steel BB shooters. I would say KJWORKS and KWA Airsoft Guns are comparable in terms of build quality, fit and finish so it’s great we now offer both brands for you to choose from.
Realism: The KJWORKS KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol is a replica of a High Capacity styled tactical 1911 45 Auto and is a great looking and functioning replica. You will not find actual Colt or other manufacturer licensing other than KJWORKS on this pistol and the CO2 magazine does stick out a bit to accommodate the 12 gram CO2 but other than that this Airsoft pistol looks and works near exactly like a real 1911 tactical 45 semi auto and is fully field strip-able. I really like the updated more tactical add ons like the tactical rail, machined trigger and hammer, white dot adjustable sights, and much lighter polymer frame that helps keep the overall gun weight down to around 2 pounds.
Metal parts where you need them, polymer frame to keep it lighter weight.
Heavy Full blowback operation.
Excellent fit and finish as always with KJWorks pistols.
High capacity full size drop out magazine that holds 28 rounds.
Versatile magazine options, also works with Marui Hi-Capa Magazines.
Easy to see white dot sights and adjustable for windage rear sight.
All working components like the real steel 1911.
Clean looking but still has that tactical quality about it.
Grips are wider than a typical single stack 1911, may not fit the hands of small shooters.
No ambidextrous safety, not a problem for right handed shooters but lefties would benefit from this.
The KJWORKS KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol is KJWORKS first Airsoft pistol with a polymer frame. It’s also very versatile in that you can use KJWORKS KP-05 magazines and even High-Capa Marui Mags if you won them. The red internal gas tube allows you to use pretty much any type of magazine too which means Green gas, propane and CO2 are all good to go with the KJWORKS KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol! The polymer frame really helps keep what would normally be a rather heavy Airsoft pistol a bit bit more light weigth and field friendly but you still have all the perks of a High-Capa 1911 so it’s a win win for me.
In this Field Test Shooting Video Review I compare the KWA M226-LE and KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols head to head and side by side to see how these two very similar Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Replicas perform. They both cost about the same, are built with similar quality and look a lot alike but what I really wanted to know is how do they shoot!
First off I tested out the power of both Airsoft Guns shooting 5 consistent .20 gram Airsoft BB’s from each gun through my Chronograph. Keep in mind I was using a full magazine of propane gas in the KWA M226-LE and a brand new 12 gram CO2 in the KJWorks KJ1060 (KP-01). As CO2 is know to have more power than green gas I was expecting a bit more pop out of the KJWorks KJ1060 which I did get. The temperature in my indoor Sea Can Airgun Shooting Range was 18 degree Celsius (64 degrees Fahrenheit) so not too cold or too hot. The KWA M226-LE averaged right around 320 fps while the KJWorks KJ1060 averaged 350 fps.
Moving on to my accuracy portion of the test for the KWA M226-LE and KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols. I placed fresh paper targets 30 feet down range for each Airsoft pistol and put 10 rounds into each target shooting from a rested seated position. I did not adjust the hop-up or sights for either Airsoft Pistol prior to this test to see how close to the bullseye they would get out of the box. First up was the KWA M226-LE and it performed nicely for me shooting close to the bullseye, just a little bit low but getting around a 3.5 inch 10 round group. I then followed up with the KJWorks KJ1060 (HP-01) and also shot fairly near the Bullseye out of the box but the grouping opened up just a bit resulting in a 4.5 inch 10 round group. Still respectable for a close Airsoft quarters sidearm.
At the end of the day, the KWA M226-LE and KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols came out pretty close to each other in this head to head Filed Test Shooting Comparison Review. One shot a little bit harder while the other one was a little bit more accurate but neither was a standout in either category. I guess you’re going to have to flip a coin deciding on which one of these two very well made Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols you’re going to choose but either way you will be getting a winner here.
Type: 6mm Plastic BB Airsoft Pistols. Manufacturer:KWA & KJWorks Model:KWA M226-LE - KJWorks KJ1060 (Sigt Sauer P226) Materials: Metal slide & frame. Weight: About 2.5 pounds. Barrel: Metalnon-rifled smooth bore. Propulsion: Green Gas - 12 Gram CO2. Action: Single and double action. Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's. Ammunition Capacity: 24-25 rounds. FPS: 350-400 fps
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on both the KWA M226-LE and KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols is very similar, they both shoot in single and double action and both actions are fairly light on the finger. I found the KWA M226-LE had a bit lighter double action trigger while the KJWorks KJ1060 seemed lighter when shooting in single action. This is all based on simply dry firing both guns to see who the triggers felt in both their single and double actions.
Accuracy: So far I have not shot either Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistol but plan to get to my Field Test Shooting Review very soon. I will be testing both Airsoft Guns out head to head to see how each performs against each other for power and accuracy.
Build Quality: The build quality for the KWA M226-LE and KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols is excellent. Both KWA and KJWorks make exception quality Airguns so which ever one you pick will be a good choice here. Both Airsoft Sig Sauer P226 Pistols are all metal full Blowback ultra realistic Airguns It may just come down to a few small differences. Overall I liked the fit and finish on the KWA M226-LE just a little bit more but it was very close.
Realism: In terms of realism it does not get any more realistic than this. You are going to find that the KWA M226-LE and KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols mimic a real Sig Sauer P226 very closely with working parts as you would find them in the real steel version. The only tell tale sign on the KWA M226-LE is the orange tip which by they ways was not what we ordered so in future versions they will not have orange tips. The KJWorks KJ1060 comes with a CO2 magazine which is a bit elongated from the pistol grip but there are shorter Green Gas magazines for this gun available.
I like that both guns have full blowback operation, full size drop out magazines, easy to use white dot sights.
Working de-cockers and true to form single and double action triggers.
I like the finish on the KWA M226-LE, it’s smoother and has stamped in branding on the slide and frame.
I like the Grips on the KWA M226-LE, more ergonomic and comfortable.
Fit and overall quality feels just a little bit better on the KWA M226-LE.
I like the look of the flush green gas magazine on the KWA M226-LE.
I like the additional power the CO2 Magazine will give the KJWorks KJ1060.
I like that the KJWorks KJ1060 doe snot have an orange tip.
I like the the KJWorks KJ1060 comes with a speed loader.
What I dislike about each gun:
I don’t like that either gun doe snot have adjustable sights.
I don’t like the orange tip on the KWA M226-LE.
I don’t like the way the extended CO2 mag looks on the KJWorks KJ1060
Comments: No matter which of these two awesome Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols you may choose, you are going to love it. I am a big Sig Sauer fan and so it makes sense for me to own something like this so I can shoot it any time I want without having to go to the actual gun range and spend a boat load of money firing off real 9mm ammo. You really do get a very realistic experience shooting these ultra realistic Airsoft Pistols. They are the same size and weight, all the controls work the same, the triggers have the same weigth and feel to them, the blowback action simulates the recoil. The only difference is the cost to shoot, less recoil feel obviously and the fact that most people can shoot them safely and quality in the privacy of their own back yards.
My YouTube Table Top Comparison Review of the KWA M226-LE & KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols:
Type: Airsoft Rifle. Manufacturer: KJWorks. Model:M700P. Materials: Metal with textured synthetic stock. Weight: 7.8 pounds (3600 grams). Barrel: Smooth bore barrel. Propulsion: Gas operated (Green Gas or propane). Action: Bolt.. Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's. Ammunition Capacity: 10-11 round metal magazine. FPS: Up to 550fps.
Trigger Pull: the trigger on the KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle is what you would expect from a bolt action style hunting/sniper rifle. The working of the bolt does most of the work for your trigger finger so all that is required is the release of the firing pin from a very short and light tigger.
Build Quality: The KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle is well built all around and the fit and finish feel good. all the mechanical parts functioned without any problems and I do like the textured stock and nice rubber butt pad. I did notice a couple of spots on the textured stock where it there where cosmetic imperfections, perhaps this is form the moulding of it?
Realism: The KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle is based around the Remington 700 platform which looks like your standard high powered hunting rifle. The Airsoft version looks and functions just like the real deal since we are using Green Gas rather than a spring making the bolt easy and smooth to operate. Available From: The Replica Airguns Store.
Bolt is super easy to use compared to a Spring style bolt action Airsoft rifle.
Textured stock feels great.
Lots of sight option with the built in scope rail and removable adjustable iron sights.
Ready for Bipod or sling.
Full size drop out metal magazine that holds the Gas and Airsoft BB’s.
Easy to adjust Hop-up screw.
FPS was a little bit lower than expected.
Was not able to get 11 rounds into the magazine.
Some imperfections on the textured stock.
Comments: I have revised a couple of spring bolt action Airsoft rifles in the past and although it's nice that all you need is a bag of Airsoft BB's and your ready to shoot, having the Gas operation makes the bolt so much easier to operate allowing for much quicker follow up shoots. The more time you have to acquire your next target and make the shot can make all the difference when your enemy is closing in. The KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle is a nice ready to shoot out of the box Airsoft rifle that if you want to can be customized pretty easy with a bipod or scope which I would recommend since not only will this make the KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle look a lot better but also way more practical.
My YouTube Table Top Review Video for the KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle:
I'm trying to remember if I have ever reviewed a Gas Operated Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle before or not? I know I have reviewed Spring Operated Bolt Action Airsoft Rifles but I think this is a first for me. With Spring Bolt Action Airsoft Rifles there is some work involved in the back and forth movement of the bolt since the power is coming from the spring tension, compared to a Gas Bolt Action Airsoft system there is virtually no resistance in the bolt so you can get off your follow up shots a lot quicker.
For this indoor short range testing I used .20 gram Plastic Airsoft BB's and placing 5 shots through my Chrony Chronograph I got a an average of 382 fps. The gas magazine was fully topped up using propane gas and the temperate was around 15 degrees Celsius (60 degrees Fahrenheit).
Again using .20 gram Plastic Airsoft BB's I then performed my close range accuracy test (about 30 feet away) and the KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle shot about a 1.5 inch grouping with one outlier that went kind of low, perhaps a bad Airsoft BB? With most sniper style Airsoft rifles you will want to use heavier gram Airsoft BB's which should help with accuracy so I would expect the KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle to tighten up a bit using a .30 or higher gram BB.
I don't get many Gas Blowback Airsoft Rifles to review all that often so when I get my hands on them I sure have a great time testing them out and feeling the blowback action tapping me in the shoulder as I shoot in semi or full auto modes. Sure Gas Blowback Airsoft Guns don't perform like their AEG counterparts, especially when you're shooting in full auto. You can expect way less rounds in each magazine and even with less rounds the last 5 or 10 shots when shooting rapid fire are going to be compromised but I really don't care because a well made Gas Blowback Airsoft rifle like the KJWorks M4 CQB Carbine GBB is just so much more fun to shoot than an AEG and way more realistic.
So let's get on with my test results for the KJWorks M4 CQB Carbine GBB Airsoft Rifle... The fps consistency was really decent, super consistent when I spaced out my 5 test shots they averaged 377 fps, not really having any low or high fps shots out of the bunch. I did have a full gassed up mag and was using .20 gram plastic 6mm Airsoft BB's for this part of the field test.
Again shooting in semi auto mode, I placed 10 rounds into my paper target setup downrange 30 feet and as per usual I was using a rested shooting setup sitting on a stool and resting the KJWorks M4 CQB Carbine GBB Airsoft Rifle on a sandbag up front. 9 out of the 10 rounds all grouped in about a 3/4 inch group with only 1 round coming outside a bit stretching the 10 shot grouping out to about 1.5 inches. Still really great for a Gas Blowback or any Airsoft rifle for that matter!
Next I shot the rest of the mag in full auto burst mode which was about 20 rounds left in the KJWorks M4 CQB Carbine GBB Airsoft Rifle at this point. As expected the KJWorks M4 CQB Carbine GBB Airsoft Rifle cooled down pretty quick and the last 5 rounds did fire just fine but there was a noticeable drop in power making the rounds shoot low on the target. Keep in mind I was shooting in a not too warm environment, about 15 degrees which is not bad but also not that warm.
In this comparison video I look at a variety of different Beretta 92/Taurus PT92 Airguns and compare them to each other to determine which one I feel is the best Beretta/Taurus Airgun. Keep in mind what's best in for me may not be best for you.
It's been a great year for Replica Airguns and I wanted to share with everyone some of my favorites that I reviewed this year. In this YouTube Video I show some of my top Replica Airgun picks for 2016 and talk a little bit about each one and what I like about it.
Here is a list of the Replica Airguns in this lineup:
It has been a while since I picked out some of my favorite guns, after all my favorite gun picks change on a daily basis since there are so many awesome guns out there to pick from.
This YouTube video is a little different since I pick out my favorites from a bunch of mostly replica gun categories including Steel BB, Pellet, Airsoft, Revolvers and Blank Pistols.
You may notice most of my picks happen to be blowback guns but to me airguns are all about being as realistic as possible and having blowback operation to me help to simulate the realism that much more. The exception in this video is in the pellet gun category since I decided on a pellet gun that was more about function and purpose over being any type of real replica.
Hopefully you take the time to watch my entire YouTube video since I also bring out some close runner ups but here is a list of my top picks on this day, tomorrow it could be a completely different list of guns ;)
In this Field Test Shooting video I test out the KJWorks KP-11 Hi-Capa 1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol to determine what the real work velocity is and also how well it performs in terms of accuracy. To test velocity I use a my Chrony Chronograph and do my best to get 5 good readings which I then average out. I always use a brand new 12 gram CO2 cartridge and generally use .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB's for my entire Field Testing. To test accuracy I set myself up 30 feet back using a semi rested position, to do this I place a sand bag to rest my hand and gun on and then stand securely in the back while I place 10 rounds on a paper target. There is obviously some humane factor involved but I can usually get a good idea on how accurate a given gun is.
During the Velocity or Feet Per Second Chronograph testing, I did manage to get 5 good readings, not all in a row but all within the first 10 or so shots. The KJWorks KP-11 Hi-Capa 1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol shot hard and averaged 420fps again using .20 gram Airsoft BB's.
For my accuracy testing, all 10 shots placed within about 3 inches and they where fairly well centered left to right but did shoot a little bit high, this could be corrected using the hop-up adjustment to bring the Airsoft BB's down just a little.
I was rather surprised at how loud the KJWorks KP-11 Hi-Capa 1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is, it is by far one of the loudest CO2 Pistols I have shot to date other than the Umarex Desert Eagle Pellet Pistol. The KJWorks KP-11 Hi-Capa 1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol also has a lot of blowback kick which makes it a lot of fun to shoot. Don't expect a lot of shots per CO2 since it uses a lot of CO2 per shot but in my books it is worth it for the added blowback recoil.
The KJWorks KP-11 Hi-Capa 1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol may shoot a little bit hot for indoor Airsoft close quarters games but if you plan to use it outdoors at longer ranges it would definitely send Airsoft BB's out to further away targets. You could also pickup a Green Gas Magazine to lower the FPS about 50fps or so which would calm the KJWorks KP-11 down enough for indoor shooting.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the KJWorks KP-11 1911 is very good since it is modeled after a real steel 1911 which makes it short and crisp with a nice light trigger pull. There is a very slight take-up at the very beginning of the pull but once your get past this the release is crisp and predictable. Since it is not a double action trigger you will need to either rack the slide for your first shot or pull the hammer back if you have already chambered a round.
Accuracy: I have not done my actual Field Test Shooting video review for the KJWorks KP-11 M1911 Airsoft Pistol so I do not have any definitive feedback for you but based on my experiences shooting other KJWorks 1911 styled Airsoft CO2 Pistols I expect it to have great blowback action recoil, a nice trigger and good overall FPS and accuracy. In terms of reliability, KJWorks pistols are solid in this department.
Build Quality: As expected, the KJWorks KP-11 Hi-Capa 1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol build quality is exactly like all the other KJWorks Airsoft guns I've tested so far, Build quality for the price point is top notch with tolerances between the moving parts like the slide and frame are extremely tight showing excellent workmanship and machining from KJWorks. The finish is always a step above other similar styled Airsoft and BB guns, youn really don't have to worry about the finish coming of as easy.
Realism: The KJWorks CO2 KP-11 Hi-Capa 1911 Blowback Airsoft Pistol copies the real steel very popular even today Colt 1911 45 caliber pistol, it can be field stripped very similarly to a real 1911 Semi Auto pistol and all parts function virtually the same including a working safety, grip safety, slide catch-release, magazine release and hammer. This Hi-Capa version has a more tactical look with a wider frame for what would be a double stack hi capacity styled magazine.
Has really good weight but not too heavy since it has a polymer frame..
Expect to have typical KJWorks crisp and firm full blowback operation.
Excellent fit and finish. I like the mat textured finish which looks to bed super durable.
Nice bright white dot sights, really easy to see.
I like the look of the tactical hammer and trigger.
Nice high capacity magazine with a little extra zing for the CO2 Mag.
Fully field strip-able.
Is not really setup up for left handers with no real ambidextrous components.
CO2 magazine is long to accommodate the 12 gram CO2.
Grips may be a bit thick for smaller hands.
Comments: I love 1911 pistols and enjoy shooting them, there is something about how they feel in the hand that is different form most other pistols. They always feel so solid. The KJWorks Airsoft versions capture that feeling exactly and again the little bit more you may pay for a KJWorks 1911 over some other lesser quality Full blowback 1911's is worth the cost in my books. This Hi-Capa 1911 version with it's tactical look and finish would make a great game player for sure!
My YouTube Table Top Review of the KJWorks KP-11 Hi-Capa 1911 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol:
I was personally confused about some of the similarities and differences between several models of KJWorks Beretta M9 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistols, so I decided to make a video where I go over 4 models of KJWorks M9 Pistols and point out the commonalities and differences between them.
Here are the 4 versions of KJWorks Beretta M9 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistols:
Another Airsoft Pistol Preview Video to share with everyone. First up we have a nice lighter weight CO2 powered 1911 from KJWorks called the KP-11 The lower receiver is polymer which helps to keep this gun a little bit lighter all around but it still has good weight to it coming in at a little over 2 pounds, the grips are larger than some 1911's since the KP-11 has a double stack style full size drop out metal magazine. You will also find some nice Tactical upgrade like adjustable white dot sights, a lower rail for accessories and milled trigger and hammer.
Propulsion: Green gas or 12 Gram CO2 dependant on magazine used.
Action: Blowback,Single action only.
Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 29 rounds.
FPS: 410-440 fps
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the KJWork KC-02 Version 2 10/22 Gas Blowback Airsoft Carbine is pretty much exactly like a real Ruger 10/22, nice and short, not to light or heavy, crisp and single action only. If you already have a Ruger 10/22 and want to pickup this Airsoft version for some anytime shooting then you will not be disappointed in the trigger since it is already what you are used to.
Accuracy: I decided to setup my paper target a little further out than my standard 30 feet, so I took it back to around 50 feet and put around 24 shots into it in a fairly quick succession from a rested position. The KJWork KC-02 Version 2 10/22 Gas Blowback Airsoft Carbine grouped continently and well centred on target getting around a 3 inch grouping. This was using a red dot scope but with the out of the box hop-up setting in place. I was a little bit surprised by my fps results as my Chronograph recorded an impressive 445 average 5 shot fps using the lower powered green gas magazine. All shot where within only a few fps of each other too! I can only imagine how hard this gun would shoot using the alternative CO2 Magazine. Blowback action was just enough to give some feedback and of course allowed for the bolt to cycle giving the KJWork KC-02 Version 2 10/22 Gas Blowback Airsoft Carbine a true single action trigger pull.
Build Quality: The build quality for all KJWork KC-02 Version 2 10/22 Gas Blowback Airsoft Carbine is very good with a nice weight and feel to it, It really does feel like I am holding a real Ruger 10/22 and it is one of the most popular semi auto 22LR rifles out there for a reason. Mechanically this Ryger 10/22 copy works great, super consistent and very responsive. The fit and finish as with all KJWorks guns is top notch.
Realism: The KJWork KC-02 Version 2 10/22 Gas Blowback Airsoft Carbine is for all intents and purposes simple an Airsoft version of the Ruger 10/22 and even though I have no way to confirm this, I would imagine many 10/22 after market accessories may actually work with the KJWork 10/22 Gas Blowback Airsoft Carbine. Everything works just like it would on a real 10/22 without the loud noise and ejecting shells.
Built on the very popular 10/22 platform so lots of people are going to be very familiar with this rifle and may want an Airsoft version they can shoot just about any time they feel like it.
Good weight and feel to it.
Blowback semi auto action with true single action trigger.
Lots of rail access points for tons of add on accessories.
Pop-up fully adjustable sights stay out of the way but are ready to go when needed.
Easy to adjust Hop-up.
Available magazines in both CO2 and Green Gas.
Adjustable AR styled rear stock with AR pistol grips.
Sling mounts included.
Works with standard Airsoft screw on flash hider or suppressors.
Awesome FPS and consistency.
Very accurate even at 50 feet, around a 3 inch 25 shot grouping.
No full auto mode.
Higher capacity mag would have been nice.
Would be nice to have a higher capacity magazine for it.
I am really impressed with the KJWork KC-02 Version 2 10/22 Gas Blowback Airsoft Carbine! It feel and shoots a lot like the real steel version but with less noise and recoil. For back yard shooting fun and practice you can not find a cheaper gun out there to simulate shooting your real 10/22 and of course this rifle used on an Airsoft field would be a perfect fir for almost any shooting environment since it is light, compact, accurate and powerful. I think I found my newest favorite Blowback Airsoft Rifle :)
My YouTube Table Top Review of the KJWork KC-02 Version 2 10/22 Gas Blowback Airsoft Carbine:
In this Field Test Shooting video I test out the performance of the KJWorks KP01-E2 (Sig Sauer P226) CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol using my Chronograph to get a real world (FPS) Feet Per Second rating. I also position myself 30 feet back and shoot 10 rounds at a paper target using a semi-rested shooting position (Sand bag up front and standing in the back).
In terms of velocity the KJWorks KP01-E2 (Sig Sauer P226) CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol shot a bit on the fast side at 414 FPS when averaging a 5 shot strong using .20 gram BB's with a brand new CO2. Keep in mind I was using the CO2 magazine which will have more power than the Gas Magazine version. I would assume the Gas mag version would shoot right around the mid 300's which may be more suited for indoor Airsoft games. For outside Airsoft wars you may want the extra power of the CO2 mag for shooting at targets further distances out.
Stepping back 30 feet and shooting at my paper target, the KJWorks KP01-E2 (Sig Sauer P226) CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol produced a decent 2 inch 10 shot grouping that was just a hair low but well centered left and right. The low factor could be adjusted up using some Hop-up tweaking. The trigger in single action mode is light and the release is crisp. Even the double action trigger is fairly light for double action, but there is a lot more take up since your finger is doing all the work that the blowback action would normally do for you when shooting in single action.
With the heavy blowback and high FPS the KJWorks KP01-E2 (Sig Sauer P226) CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol creates a really great shooting experience. It would be great for some target practice, getting some additional trigger time in if you are a Sig Sauer P226 owner and would make an excellent outdoor Airsfot war backup weapon. The quality is excellent and as a lover of the Sig Sauer lineup of guns I highly recommend this Airsoft pistol from KJWorks.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the KJWorks KP01-E2 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Replica is good in both single and double action. Once the slide is pulled back and released the first round is chambered and the hammer will remain back placing the KJWorks P226 in single action mode, the pull is light and the take-up is nice and short, most of your shots will be in single action mode unless you use the de-cocker to lower the hammer for a subsequent double action follow-up shot, double action shots are still pretty light but much longer in order to cock the hammer back.
Accuracy: (I have not shot the KJWorks distributed CO2 Mag version but I have already done a Field Test Shootinng Review for the same KJWORKS gun distributed and licensed by Cybergun in the Gas Mag version. Here is what I had to say about the Cybergun Gas Magazine version: "Shooting the Cybergun Sig P226 from 20 feet out in semi rested position I was able to get very good results. I placed 10 rounds in about 1.5 inches with the shot placement being a bit low possibly due to my barrel mod, adjusting the hop-up may bring the aim point back up to where it should be. The Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Replica shot right around the 316 fps range while conducting my 5 shot average chrony testing which was lower than advertised but I was using much heavier .20 gram BB's. You can expect to get a full magazine worth of shots out of each gas fill-up but I did notice that as the magazine got colder it did tend to become much less efficient and also seemed to vent a lot of vapor."
Build Quality: The build quality for all KJWorks guns in my opinion is one of the best in the business. Fit and finish is top notch with close tolerances in the working parts as you would find in a real steel gun. The paint is excellent and in general will wear much better than other Airsoft guns out there. The KJWorks KP01-E2 (Sig Sauer P226) CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is pretty much all metal and feels it, the recoil spring is nice and firm and all working parts are smooth and crisp when operated.
Realism: The KJWorks KP01-E2 (Sig Sauer P226) CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is a replica of the real steel Sig Sauer P226 with the exception of the licensing. The KJWorks KP01-E2 really is a great looking and functioning Airsoft Replica. You can field strip this gun exactly like a real Sig Sauer and all the mechanical parts work just the same including a working de-cocker and adjustable front sight. It is really hard to distinguish the Airsoft version from the real Sig P226 in both looks and feel.
All metal pistol with good overall realistic weight to it.
Very crisp and firm full blowback operation.
Some of the best fit and finish in the industry. Especially in price range.
Nice accurate looking and working Sig Sauer P226 Replica.
White dot sights for quick target acquisition.
Front sight is adjustable for windage.
Full size drop out magazine holds Airsoft BB's and CO2.
Fully field strip-able.
No actual Sig Sauer Licensing but very clean look.
CO2 Mag does stick out a bit and add to size
Comments: I am a huge Sig Sauer fan so I have kind of high expectations with a replica gun! The KJWorks lineup as a whole is really fantastic, and what I say about the KJWorks KP01-E2 (Sig Sauer P226) CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol can be said about the entire lineup. KJWorks makes a super well built product that replicates the real steal version almost exactly other then they shoot Airsoft BB's instead of actual bullets. When holding a KJWorks gun in the hand you can feel the quality, in weight, ballence and especially when operating the slide, trigger and other working parts. Everything just feels so perfect and responsive. For the money you can not go wrong with the KJWorks KP01-E2 (Sig Sauer P226) CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol or any other KJWorks gun for that matter.
My YouTube Table Top Review of the KJWorks KP01-E2 (Sig Sauer P226) CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol:
This First Person Shooting Clay Pigeons Video with my KJWorks M9A1 and 1911 Airsoft Pistol is to serve two purposes: Number one and really the only reason needed to make a video like this... To get outside on a nice warm summer day and practice some tactile shooting all while recording it in first person so you can come along and enjoy it with me :)
Secondly I wanted to inform everyone that the video uploads will be a bit lighter for the next week or so since I am on what I call a working holiday. I am focusing on a Fitness Contest this weekend along with a Fitness Expo the following weekend, nothing to do with Replica Airguns but it does coincide with my other Website and YouTube channelGetFitOver40.com. The Fitness contest is the Victoria Cup where I will be competing in the Men's Physique (Masters - Over 40) and (Open - All Ages) divisions. The Fitness Expo is called "theFitExpo" and it is in Anaheim California.
So if you want to watch more of my videos then you will have to checkout my other fitness channel for the next week where I will be posting lots of related content on what's going on fitness wise in my life right now.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the KJWorks Beretta M9 & M9A1 is very good in both single and double action. Double action is a bit longer and heavier than when shooting in single action but not heavy by any means. Single action shooting is short, light and crisp as you would expect when shooting a real steel Beretta 92 style pistol.
Accuracy: I have not done my actual Field Test Shooting video review for the KJWorks M9 and M9A1 Airsoft pistols but I did get the chance to make a short preview video where I shot both guns at some clay pigeons setup around 20 feet away. I was able to pop the center out of the clay pigeons no problem and found that even without any practice I was consistently hitting dead center on most shots. I am not sure exactly what the FPS will be but considering both theses versions of the KJWorks M9 & M9A1 have the CO2 mags they should shoot up into the 360+ fps range using .20 gram Airsoft BB's. Blowback operation is strong and the slides cycle full length. Keep posted for my upcoming Field Test Shooting Video for both pistols.
Build Quality: As expected, the KJWorks M9 & M9A1 build quality is just like all the other KJWorks Airsoft guns I've tested so far, excellent the fit and finish is the best in my opinion even when compared to my my 4.5mm steel BB shooters. When using these guns regularly, areas that are painted like the metal friction areas show very light wear which is rarely the case with metal built blowback Airguns. Again the tolerances between the moving parts like the slide and frame are very tight showing excellent workmanship and machining from KJWorks.
Realism: Both the KJWorks M9 & M9A1 are copies of the real steel popular Beretta M9 & M9A1, it is really hard to tell them apart from the real versions. Both the M9 and M9A1 are very similar in design with the M9A1 having some slight cosmetic differences, the biggest being the addition of a tactical rail built into the frame. Both KJWorks Beretta's can be field stripped in the same manor as a real Beretta M9 Semi Auto pistol and all parts function the same.
Pretty much all metal pistols with good weight to them.
Full heavy blowback operation.
Excellent fit and finish as always with KJWorks pistols.
High capacity full size drop out magazine that holds the Airsoft BB’s and CO2. (Can get Green Gas mags)
Seem to be very accuracy and well centered on target.
White dot sights make it easy to shoot an most backgrounds.
Field strip-able like the real steel versions.
Sight are non-adjustable but elevation can be adjusted using the hop-up.
Grips may be a bit wide for some small handed people.
CO2 magazines sticks out a bit when using the CO2 mags.
Comments: The KJWorks Full Metal M9 & M9A1 are yet more examples of excellent full blowback Airsoft pistols from KJWorks. They are built to very high standards, are near perfect replicas of the real steel Beretta M9 & M9A1 and performance is also excellent. Yes the price is slightly higher than a similar Airsoft gun from KWC but the quality on the KJWorks is definitely worth the extra cost. Make sure to drop by our Replica Airguns Canada Store and checkout our new lower pricing on the KJWorks line of Airsoft guns.
My YouTube Table Top Review of the KJWorks M9and M9A1 Full Metal Blowback Airsoft Pistol:
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the KJWorks 1911 is very good since it is modeled after a real steel 1911 which makes it short and crisp with a very light trigger pull. There is a very slight take-up at the very beginning of the pull but once your get past this the release is crisp and perceptible. Since it is not a double action trigger you will need to either rack the slide for your first shot or pull the hammer back if you have already chambered a round.
Accuracy: I have not done my actual Field Test Shooting video review for the KJWorks 1911 Airsoft Pistol but I did get the chance to make a short preview video where I shot some clay pigeons setup around 20 feet away. The KJWorks Full Metal CO2 Airsoft 1911 was a lot of fun to shoot at the clay pigeons and I had no trouble hitting them form that range over and over again. I am not sure exactly what the FPS will be but considering this version of the KJWorks 1911 has the CO2 mag it should shoot up into the 360+ fps range using .20 gram Airsoft BB's. Blowback operation is strong and the slide cycles full length. Keep posted for my upcoming Field Test Shooting Video for the KJWorks Full Metal 1911 CO2 Airsoft Pistol.
Build Quality: As expected, the KJWorks 1911 build quality is just like all the other KJWorks Airsoft guns I've tested so far, excellent the fit and finish is the best in my opinion even when compared to any of my 4.5mm steel BB shooters or 6 mm Airsoft pistols. When using KJWorks guns regularly, areas that are painted like the metal friction areas and high spots show very light wear which is rarely the case with metal built blowback Airguns. Again the tolerances between the moving parts like the slide and frame are extremely tight showing excellent workmanship and machining from KJWorks.
Realism: The KJWorks CO2 Full Metal 1911 Blowback Airsoft Pistol copies the real steel very popular even today Colt 1911 A1, it is really hard to tell the KJWorks Airsoft 1911 apart from the real 45 caliber version. The KJWorks 1911 can be field stripped very similarly to a real 1911 Semi Auto pistol and all parts function virtually the same including a working safety, grip safety, slide catch-release, magazine release and hammer.
Pretty much all metal pistol with good realistic weight to it.
Full cycle heavy blowback operation.
Excellent fit and finish as always with KJWorks pistols.
High capacity 28 round full size drop out magazine that holds the Airsoft BB’s and CO2. (Can get Green Gas mags)
Seems to be accurate and well centered on target.
Nice two tone finish.
Working grip safety.
Nice light true single action only trigger.
Sights are non-adjustable but you can adjust elevation using the hop-up.
Field strips a little different than a real 1911.
CO2 magazine sticks out a bit but KJWorks makes Gas Mags also.
Comments: I am a big fan of 1911 pistols and love getting my hands on pretty much any version weather it be a Real Steel 45 caliber 1911, a 4.5mm Steel BB version or 6mm Airsoft Pistol. As long as it has that true 1911 single action short light trigger to it. I love the way the slide cycles a bit slower than most semi auto pistols and this can be found in many Airgun and Airsoft version like this KJWorks 1911 making the shooting experience even more realistic. The fit, Finish and overall quality of the KJWorks 1911 over other brands is worth the slight additional costs so if you don't mind paying juts a tad bit more for that extra quality and you're looking for a CO2 1911 then you will not be disappointed with the KJWorks Full Metal CO2 Airsoft 1911.
