  1. Wow, that KJ rifle seems all steel inside and outside.

    That's mighty impressive and looks like it could be quite reliable out-of-the-box.

     

    But I can't help it, I ventured into the GBBR world for the kick of more realism and simplicity.

    Reliability sure, but if it's just about that, my AEG would serve me just fine.

    If KJ just used the WA system, I would have said we have a winner.

    But just like the WE system, I hate extras that make it look funny and unrealistic to disassemble/assemble.

    The KJ has too many mechanical parts, a rubberband what the fcuk???, a hopup dial that is certainly ergonomic but ugly to look at, a nozzle that protrudes out of the bolt and the bolt itself doesn't look like the real deal.

    That's too much to bear with. A pity really as the KJ seems promising, but only reliability wise.

     

    I see it like snorkelman and Stealthbomber:

    Going by the photos posted on the KJW I can get at least some of them in steel straight out the box in a 290 dollars or so gun

     

    On the AGM I can add ALL of them to the 120 dollar gun for 80 bucks right now, and probably for less than 60 by this side of chrimbo

    {...}

    {...}

    I hate to say it but I hope the KJW gun doesn't turn out to be very reliable or accurate.

    All it's doing is messing up a market that already desperately needs to sort itself out.

    Beyond that, I'm not keen on the ugly hop-up adjuster or the strange mechanism so it'd almost be a shame if it did turn out to be the most practical gun of the type.

    I know that sounds a bit harsh but it's just starting to feel like the whole market is gonna go bonkers to me.{...}


  2. Nice to see a cheap reliable platform finally coming out of the cracks. I know people are going to *badgeress* about, say the AGM, but I consider it to be a non contender. When I see reports of critical parts failure within a few hundred rounds, and then several hundred dollars in repairing parts that are sub standard, in part of a flawed system, I really don't understand.

     

    Be interested in picking one of these up to be honest. The power would need to be sorted, but its not a particularly difficult issue.

    You're right, don't compare the AGM, it's in a class of its own.

    But as you mention substandard parts that need to be replaced on the AGM. That's only the mechanical parts inside the receiver because they are made of alloy instead of steel and those can be upgraded with CNC steel parts for cheap. Now to the KJ: As far as I can see Donut's review didn't mention if the KJ's mechanical parts are made of alloy or steel, so I would wait with your judgment. ;)


  3. I'm glad you revived this...

     

    To your question; I would sell one, keep the other for a back up, and pinch pennies to get teh WOC... ;)

     

    Also, and anyone heard anything on the concerns of law enforcement in the US about the gas guns being converted to fire real rounds?

    All GBBRs except maybe for the Inokatsu will explode to thousand pieces after the first shot of a live round. :D

    Will you equip the entire U.S. Armed Forces with your WE toy guns or will it just fill a tiny niche amongst the AEGs, Paintball markers, RAMs, RAPs, MILES and Simmunition system they already have for training?


  5. True, ROF is insane. FPS is high. The recoil certainly looks very low. I get it, it's probably an uber-expensive high speed carrier.

     

    I'd say I would much rather FPS be around 400, bolt weight only slightly less than stock, ROF around the same as stock, just no jams and better mags.

     

    You also inserted the mag, released it, pulled the charging handle, and reinserted the mag. Why?

    Same here, they should rather focus on reliablity, hard recoil and realistic but not insane rof or dangerous fps rates.


  6. The INO receivers are not made of steel, they are made from forged alloy like the RS counterpart.

    I have one here... actually a nice metal body but wobble between upper and lower is really dissapointing.

     

     

    D.O.C.

    Hi there, mind to share more about your experience with the Inokatsu?

    How bad is the upper-lower wobble and any other flaws? Is topgas/green gas enough to cycle it properly and still get a hard enough kick?

     

    Btw, I am from Germany too. What's the regulation on GBB rifles in Germany? I mean they have no fixed fps/joule, but depend on gas type and ambient temperature. Is full auto allowed for GBB rifles and still need the F cert?

    Here's a couple of questions to anyone who cares enough to read my posts. Which would you choose...a full metal WA (WA, G&P, INO) system, or a full metal WE system if both were free, both were green gas/co2 compatible, spare mags were free and easy to get and both shot/performed perfectly and reliably 100% of the time? Now the other question...why?

    Not a question really. The only reason for buying an out-of-the-box WE is sacrificing realism for more reliability and budget concerns.

     

    Even if WA and WE are the same in reliability and all, in the end the WE still has the fugly brass gas chamber.


  8. My G&P M16A4 had a slight upper reciever woble. Never bothered me much but on this it would. What were the other more minor problems so that if they dont get addressed we can fix them ourselves before operation?

     

    G&P Mags slated for release anytime soon? Like I said, the only thing holding me back right now is the magazines.

    If it's only the magazines, PGC will release a WA/INO/G&P compatible magazine. It's supposed to be improved (whatever that means) and more affordable.


  9. All G&P WA-type GBBs were sent to one local online shop here in HK last week.

    They have various issues of different level. A major one being unwanted side-tilting movement between the upper and lower receivers from sightly noticeable to alarmingly obvious. The result: Temporary suspension of sales of the G&P GBBs until the problem is solved.

     

    I think it'll be the first affordable M4 GBB that is both WE-reliable and WA-realistic, while the Inokatsu is like the Merc for the few.
