    KWA KRISS VECTOR GBB

    It has been a LONG time since I've gotten so excited about any airsoft gun. When they announced the KWA Kriss Vector earlier on this year at Shotshow, I was a bit skeptical as I've never been a huge fan of KWA products. I've only ever liked their MP7, but other than that, not a fan (apologies to KWA fans out there). After watching the videos and pics, I started to have a change of heart and the anticipation grew. FINALLY, after almost a year, KWA finally released the KWA KRISS VECTOR this week. I was fortunate enough to get my hands on the first batch as they're almost sold out everywhere. Hot item I guess. Without further ado, here are my initial impressions (and pics!): Box Contents (may vary from country to country): Box includes, 1x Kriss Vector, 2x Long Magazines (HK only I believe), 1x accessory rail, 1x front BUIS, 1x rear BUIS, 1 QD ring, 1x barrel thread protector, 1x vertical foregrip, 1x hop up adjustment tool, 1x sight adjustment tool, 1x instruction manual Externals are solidly built. Great polymer used and the stock is solid when extended out. When folded up, it clips into the receiver well. One thing I did notice was its weight. With the magazine in, the thing is not light. Rails are aluminum and zinc alloy charging handle & controls (could be steel but I have not yet tried it with a magnet). Fire controls are ambidextrous, crisp and click into place very solidly. I have yet to decide whether I like having separate controls for safety and fire select. That said, it is very different in weapon control ergonomics, that's for sure. Trigger is very crisp. KWA did a great job with the trigger design. There is almost no travel. Only things that aren't ambidextrous are the charging handle, bolt lock and magazine catch. I supposed this could be due to the side folding stock. One thing i noticed was that it took a little more force than I expected to pull back the charging handle. Not sure if this will loosen up over time. The bolt catch, although not being ambidextrous features a tab which enables you to lock back the bolt manually. As for the magazine catch, I don't particularly think it's in an intuitive place. It sits a little too high up on the magwell which is fine if you plan on just dropping your mag to the floor, but perhaps my hands are too small to be able to hold and remove the mag with one hand. I wish KRISS would have designed the mag release on the firing hand. OK on to the internals. KWA designed the KRISS VECTOR GBB to field strip exactly the same way the real steel one does. 4 identical pins hold the entire platform together. Inside, you'll find all STEEL parts. That's right, KWA did not go wrong on this part. Firing mech, hammer, sear, Super V mech and even the bolt is steel. Although this means you'll have to keep your gun well lubed, it should outlast that crappy pot metal that we oh so commonly see in stock GBBs. Kriss Super V System with metal bolt: The hop up is the new KWA style 2-pronged one. Still a hastle to tune but at least the tool is provided: Steel hammer, sear & selector system: Field Stripped: Magazines are proprietary to the KRISS. TOO BAD they didn't make Glock magazines work with the Kriss, but again I guess KWA never made a .45ACP Glock replica. The magazines are definately much larger. I'm a little iffy about the mags as the first one I got leaked out of the box and it had to be replaced. I've put a KWA Glock mag next to it for comparison: Shooting the Kriss is absolutely awesome. Not a whole lot of recoil (for obvious reasons), but it's remarkably straight. I ran a few tests through the chrono and it clocked at at about 340-350FPS (~1.4J with 0.25g BBs). Some more pics: Next to an FPG (lol): I'll be taking her out tomorrow for a game. So I'll let everyone know how it goes. Feel free to ask me questions and I'll try my best to answer them Props to AZNRIPTIDE859 on his moral support and reminding me to get this asap. Cheers mate!

    Magpul PTS PDR-C

    The long-awaited Magpul PTS PDR-C is finally out. Lucky to be one of the first to pick one up. MSRP is HKD2500 (USD320). Here are my initial impressions. Box set comes with: 1 x PDR-C 1 x PMAG 20 with dust cover 1 x Dummy Round 1 x Instruction Manual 1 x Warranty Card 2 x Packs of Silica Gel (BONUS!) To be honest I was a little disappointed that the package contents. For the price, I would have expected at least a pair of MBUS. Front Flashider comes off and is 14mm CCW (-) Battery goes into the grip will only take the short 4" Lipos (for the record, the PDR-C comes standard with a mini Tamiya plug, but I changed mine to a Dean's): Magwell. Mag-catch is metal: Removing the cheekrest reveals the hop-up adjustment knob: Shoots about 330FPS out of the box (1.25J with 0.25g): Overall, I'm really not that impressed. Polymer is well made as expected from PTS, however, fake weapon features (ambi charging handles, ambi ejection port) do not function or have any purpose. Balance is rear heavy (as a bullpup should be). The only sling attachment is the hole behind the magwell (not a QD) which is also polymer (not sure if it's reinforced inside). Gun seems too simple? Or is it just me? I guess it's the design of the PDR-C but I like my guns with more detail. Compared to the KRISS: More pics of dissection coming!

    Kagami: You know what's a real shame about your build? That I don't own it. Haha. Well done mate!

    Exposed screws is what i meant. I agree with Kagami, doesn't look like it's painted. I'm just hoping Siavash didn't pay a hefty sum for it, but to each his own.

    I think it's one of those InvisibleSight replicas you can find on ebay?

    Really? Never seen a real PEQ 15 with front screws, but I am interested in the brand.

    Hmm.. I thought all the SD Threaded glock Barrels were 14mm CW? I could be wrong. As Aznriptide said, the Osprey comes 14mmCW, but there is a separate kit that includes 16mmCW and 14mmCCW thread adaptors and the key to remove/install them.

    I'm running a Shooter Design (SD) threaded barrel on it. I don't recommend any steel barrel if you're running an aluminum slide on your Glock. Because of the floating design of the outer barrel, a steel barrel will just shave bits off the aluminum slide till there's none left.. LOL. And also on the topic of the free floating barrel, I've noticed that running the SD barrel on my HK3P (WE) glock is looser than running it on a Tokyo Marui Glock. This is the main cause of cycle failure. So in short, the Osprey functions flawlessly on a TM but you may encounter some cycling issues on a WE/HK3P using this set up. Here's my Marui Salient with the Osprey: I also bought one of the GM RMR slides, but haven't yet had time to install it to test it out. Will let you guys know how it runs with the SD threaded barrel when I do get around to it.

    Yep. But it does catch up once in a while with the Osprey on it. I think if the can was any heavier it probably would bring it to a complete halt.

    Some OSPREY Cans (apologies for the poor lighting & quality of the photos. I got lazy LOL): On a Glock 17 (7" 14mm CW) The 7" vs 8" versions H&K USP Tactical (8" 16mm CW) and a Glock 17 (7" 14mm CW) On a H&K P10 (7" 14mm CW) On a Kriss Vector (8" 16mm CW):

    Those sights looks like they were from a KJW KC-02.

    That 416 stock and chrome barrel don't not work for me. Other than that, I like the SR-47.

    In short no. WE Glock 19 runs a clone Tokyo Marui system which the internal blow back unit (BBU) is held in via a screw into the rear sight. I believe only KSC/KWAs could run RS sights. On that note. More salient: G22C. Yes that makes 3 now. LOL
