KWA VS. ICS

Post  SWIFT21 on Sun 08 Jun 2008, 18:12

Alright stuck between these two manufacturers sucks because you just cant choose. So
ICS:
split gear box
full metal body
great internals
trusted brand
360-400 FPS
Turbo 3000 motor
20+ROF
Price 300-350 depending on the type of gun


KWA
Li-Poly read out of the box
full metal body
awesome internals
relatively new brand
380-400 FPS
20+ ROF
Price 320-380 depending the type of gun

Actually both accuracy and faster ROF would be great. I was looking at the ICS M16 R.A.S. and the new KWA M16 without R.A.S. both around the same price. JUST TRYING TO FIND THE BETTER DEAL. haha. Either way I was going to put a JP free float R.A.S. on which ever one I get, eventually anyways.

I actually have had very good accuracy out of the box with both of my KWA M4s. KWA would be my recommendation if you want the gun to be hot out of the box. But if you want something that is accepting of upgrades, both internal and external, go with ICS. KWA gets pretty stingy when you try and put aftermarket parts in and on it. But Jason will tell you, cuz he's seen it, but my KWA with a mere 9.6 is a BB hose firing at 400 FPS with about a 6 inch to 1 foot grouping at 50 feet give or take.

Amen to that. Plus, KWA USA is extremely supportive of their products, and very accessible. Anyone remember the story of when I got one of my KWAs swapped for a brand new, updated version even long after the warranty had expired? To make a long story short, I spoke with their vice president and their customer service supervisor and have never had better assistance from any company for any product, airsoft or other.

Just my opinion. I look at the standing stats. ICS has been doing aeg's for many many years. ICS has done more in the way of research and development with what works best in thier line of long "rifles" weapons.

KWA started with pistols and made thier name with this line. They are now tring thier hand at AEG's. They have a good customer service program. There is a reason for this they need the feedback to see where and what they can improve on. They found that they had trouble with the mechbox on thier first release. The tip of the box could not hold up to the pressure of the spring driving the piston forward. However KWA is not alone on the problem.
KWA did fix the trouble on the second release. This is what makes any company worth buying thier product. This is what made ICS, Toyko Marui, and some others top sellers.

I say go with what you know for now. The test of time will tell if KWA's AEG's will be worth the money.

I have had my ICS M4 for about 4 years and put over 100,000 rounds through it and the only problems were from user error. And if you do break something it is so easy to fix. And you have the option to go from 300 fps to 450 in about 30 sec. Also the turbo 3000 can pull up to a M150 with out loosing ROF.

With a tight bore, bore-up kit, and M120 I'm getting 440 fps and its reaching out to about 230+ feet

KWA M4s are great guns stock but they just came out and haven't been tried and tested yet.


I swear by my ICS
