Biigs posted a topic in Pistols (Gas)Hi all, I noticed there was no review of this surprisingly brilliant clone pistol of the famous socom MK.23 navy seal .45 side arm. The Tokyo Marui version is a damned fine gun and rather costly, this version features a silencer as a silencer, as you can imagine on a gas pistol this works pretty well. The KJW version i bought for two reasons, the price (less than half the TM version) the second reason being that this version comes with a barrel extension in the silencer not a spring and foam rings - hoping for better accuracy and less bothered about being quiet. To my surprise the KJW "stealth assassin" mk.23 is actually very quiet, non blow back gun as it is but with the extender on, is more accurate, increases fps by about 10-20% and makes it really REALLY quiet [which didnt really make sense]. Its main active parts are metal, but almost everything else is strong plastic. I wish i had access to the TM version to see which is quieter, the clones extended barrel or the TM suppressor - i suspect the TM would be quieter, but it would be far closer a call than the TM owners would like. The KJW version comes with the barrel extending mock silencer, some free BB's that were not total garbage like most free bb's and one 26 round magazine, the magazine taking up a large portion of the guns total weight, the gun feels very cheap and nasty without the mag in, but also solid due to the fairly robust ABS plastic it doesnt feel totally useless - and it certainly performs WAY above it's expected 'pay grade'. Who is this gun for and who is it not for: Pro mil-sim players wanting realism - stay away, this guns not for you. Players who want good value for money, yes this should definitely be looked at as well as the TM version - snipers who want a side arm with some punch, yes!. New players - definitely, just a great starter pistol! The non blow back makes for a few BB refills before the gas is gone, shoots a VERY respectable 320 fps which is only a bit lower than my AEG!!!! One thing i must bring up, the rail on the underside of the front end barrel is NOT weaver or picatinny, it is larger, there is a LAM unit available that does fit this gun specificity, but be warned, some are just for looks and some barely function rather than full operation [high lumen light and real laser]. I cannot go into more detail as i modified mine with accept a certain lamp/strobe, since the LAM unit didnt come with this clone but the TM version does. Again, cannot provide any first hand info on this, so next! If there was a standard rail underneath, id be so tempted to mod this gun into little sniper, its got the range and power in the zone of ability to hit at well over 50 meters, and head shot size groupings @ 20 meters consistently. Issues worthy of note: does jam some times, this can be both internally and in the mag, but nothing a tap on the side, or eject mag/rack slide cant fix in a few seconds. No paint on the sights, easy fix drill tiny dip in each of the rear sights and front sight and put a drop of neon acrylic or some white paint on, then scratch off excess around the drilled 'dot'. This was my first review, i wont post any pics as my mk.23 has been modified since unboxing, please go gentle if you have any questions. regards, Biigs
