KWA USP Compact Airsoft Pistol Review - Click for more reviews
When I first saw that KSC was coming out with a gas blow-back Universal Shooting Pistol (USP) compact, my ears really perked up. I have long been a fan of real firearms, and do own a real USP full-size in .45 ACP, which despite it's bigger than average size is a wonderful pistol. The only down side I found for the KSC model, it would use HFC134A gas, instead of the more powerful HFC-22, commonly referred to as "green gas." KWA comes out with their version, made with the same parts in Taiwan, but set up to use "green gas." .
I dished out $109.99 and by the end of the week I was called to come pick the USP up from the shop. It arrived in a plain white box, with a foam insert sealed with plastic. Inside was the USP, instruction book, magazine, 200 BB's, optional floor-plate, a loading tool and a small bottle of airless oil. Until I took the USP out of it's packaging, I didn't know that it came with a metal slide, barrel and upgraded recoil spring. Because of the use of "green gas" that is the only way KWA will sell the USP, due to increased durability and reliability.
When opening the box for the USP, you will first notice the whole front quarter inch of the metal slide is painted blaze orange to comply with federal laws. Also the metal slide has no trademarks to speak of, nothing. Just a black sticker that reads "Made in Taiwan." Again all of this complies with U.S. laws for importation, trademark infringement and laws about replica guns, but local laws might vary or be more restrictive so check with the proper authorities first, but they should be okay with this one. For those that want the trades on their gun you can buy full trademarked metal slides as an aftermarket add-on now.
Comparing the KWA USP to the real steel, all the external parts that are metal on the real gun are metal on the KWA version. The airsoft pistol comes set-up primarily as a right-handed shooters' gun. However the controls such as the safety/de-cocker and slide release function very smoothly and are easily operable with just the left-hand after some practice. The magazine release is ambidextrous and located at the rear of the trigger guard. On top of the slide is a set of very nice and visible three-dot sights. For those interested in using "glow-paint" for low-light shooting or fast target acquisition these sights will work well and not need to be replaced.
