KSC G17, where to buy?

Hey guys.

I have been trying to find this gun in Canada, but the prices are absolutely outrageous. A lot of the people on this forum have them, and Im just wondering where you guys have been getting them, whether they are imported or if you paid over $250-300 on them?

I love the realism of this gun, and it will be a great training aid for the real steel. If there is any other guns you guys can toss my way that have this level of realism I would love it!

Ps. I already own the tanfoglio witness 1911 which is an incredible full metal replica as well. Looking for the glock version!

Thanks for the help guys (hope this is the right section to post in...)

You need to be age verified for people to tell you where to get guns

Oh wow :O

That makes a lot of sense now, I was wondering why I couldn't see anything on this site. Is there a lot of those guns available on here though? I know this is really selfish but I don't want to take a 45m trip out of town to get AV if the things im looking for aren't readily available around here. Seems like everyone on this forum is very well equipped with guns that are very hard to find in Canada at a good price.

I appreciate the help man.

It is worth it. Lots of shitty overpriced sales but also many really sweet deals that could save you 100s of dollars.

Fill in your profile so you can be directed to age verifiers in your area

Don't expect AV to happen instantly after meeting with a verifier it could take 2 weeks up to a month before it takes effect

I wouldn't get KSC G17s anymore. Parts stream dried up and there's nowhere to get a replacement receiver if yours goes.

Or WE. Their Glocks are better than KJW by a long shot.

Dont know about théier 17s but their 18s' nozzle are notorious for always breaking due to the walls being too thin

My TM g18 is serving me well fwiw

The WE auto glocks nozzles are fragile. The WE semiauto glocks however are ALLOT better so a WE G17 would be a decent choice.

I know you were looking for full metal, however IMO TM quality and reliability will more than make up for it...plus....there are a TON of aftermarket parts available....

just a thought...

Guys, remember that KWA and KSC parts are interchangeable. While some of the external (and a few of the internal bits, due to frame size differences) might be different, you can still get plenty of KSC/KWA Glock series parts from overseas vendors.

You can still find pretty much all the parts you want for the G17, even if they don't really make it new anymore.

If you want KSC/KWA, go for a G19. They're the compact version of the G17. They also seem a bit more plentiful, if still a bit hard to find new through Canadian retailers.

Also, real Glocks aren't "full metal," so there's no point in looking for a metal airsoft version.

People like the KSC/KWA Glocks because they are 1:1 with the real thing. TM and their clones are actually larger than real Glocks, and therefore can't use real sights and holsters and whatnot.

HK3P have really nice lowers, build the upper based on after market parts. TM parts will fit WE/HK3P.

No sense in buying a TM if you are replacing it with a Guarder lower, and almost every piece, lol.

HK3P/WE G17 Nozzles are crap, I replaced mine with a GunsModify Nozzle ASAP $20.


Also as a FYI - HK3P is WE but with full trades.
