You sure about this? I thought KWA were Taiwanese copies of KSC. Also, springtime is STTI. Which is a taiwanese distributor for other manufacturers such as KJW, HiTec, WE and Y&P.

Thought I might add this bit of info. I was comparing a WE Metal Hicapa with a TM Hicapa and noticed the valve on both looked different. However the mags are interchangable. The TM mag worked in the WE.

Yes, from experience. I'm talking pre-KSC clones. KWA used to produce WA clones. Springtime used to sell KWA a long time ago. We're talking way back in '94 - 96 here with the WA Magna system and pre-hopup.

Slight addition. Actually Springtime sold KWA up until '99 or '00 even iirc when KWA was cloning the WA hopup system. I believe I remember seeing them on some of their Beretta 92FS models.

Wow

Sorry for my VERY noobish Question... are the G19 or G23F's from both KWA and KSC compadible because i dont exactly feel like paying the extra money for the KSC mags.



Dont Flame me just because i mostly have no knowledge of KWA/KSC

all the glock mags that KSC produces are compatible with all the KSC/KWA glocks they make.

the glock 19's mag is shorter than the G23F's

Actually, the G19 and G23F share the exact same frame and can use the same (20 round) mags as each other.

*SOME* (not all) G23F's come with G17 (23 round) magazines along with a grip extension so that the fit looks more integrated.

Marui M9 magazines work with HFC M9 magazines, and vice versa. I've found HFC's much better, at least in my opinion and experience.

With KJ mags, I don't know.

Necro.

KJW mag work in the HFC beretta but something touch the valve when you insert it. Put it in fast and you're ok. Work fine. Cheaper than hfc beretta mag.

With the HFC one, you fill bb by the bottom and not from the lip...work but designed to be by the bottom.

Anyone know what Mags are compatible with the new KWA M4A1/M4 S-system?

Also what mags would fit the KJW P226? I've read the TM P226 mags are slightly too narrow and will not lock properly.

Please research instead of pulling up such an old thread next time.

The KWA follows the TM Armalite design, it'll take any mags meant for TM Armalites on the market.

Some KJW P226 will take TM mags, some won't. The only way to find out is to buy one and see if you've got one that does.

yea I've done searches both on this forum and other airsoft forums and googled it with no specific answer to the proper fit of the mags. I understand that most KWA creates clones based on the TM designs but that doesn't mean the mags are 100% interchangable, at least I have not seen a specific post or anyone stating they have tried, hence me digging up this thread, after reading it.
I have read that it is possible to mess up mags if they don't lock and fit properly. Thus I'm wanted someone with first hand experience to help.

But I will likely do just that and purchase some TM mags and see if they fit.

Hey does anyone know if the TM G26 Advance can use KJW G23 mags? a few reviews on Arnie's say yes, but I wanted to be 100% sure before buying

Thanks
