KWC Glock 17
Overall pic of the gun.
"Trades" on the left side of the gun.
Closed ejection port with more KWC "trades"
Grip, note how KWC copied the Glock logo.
I will tell you right now, do not buy this gun for realism. It is entirely plastic, including the internals. The barrel is stil metal though. The Glock is very light without the mag, which thankfully is full metal. The ejection port is closed.
I used propane in testing this gun, which by the way is not a good idea. Use Top gas with this gun, because the plastic slide and internals don't take very well to propane. It shoots hard enough to give it a 20 foot effective range, but without a hop-up don't expect to be nailing people much further away than that. There is no slide lock, so the only way to tell if you are out of ammo is when the gun stops spitting bbs.
The blowback is satisfactory, though basic. The Glock does a decent job as a sidearm, but again you will have to get in close.
You won't be upgrading this gun. Period.
Pros and Cons
Dirt cheap, can be found on Redwolf for $35
Functions well enough for the price
Very light, entirely plastic
Poor preformance beyond close quarters
Very frigile, don't drop it.
Spare clips difficult to find in the U.S.
Worth the money?
If all you want is a very cheap gun that delivers blowback action that you don't have to worry about upgrading, go for it. But don't expect to be blown away by the KWC Glock 17.
By the way be sure to check out my TM M-4 review.
