Kjw Mk2 Pistol

So I finally bought a new sidearm and decided to do an unboxing and video review!! There were a few posts mentioning the KJWorks pistols, all feedback seemed positive!! I will attach the link(s) but they don't always work. SO you can find the video on my channel:

https://youtu.be/KD4awVWO3fo


Attachment is the final version with some attachments, parts links can be found in the video description!!

Does anyone else use a KJW MK1/2?? Do you like it?? I really like it so far, but haven't fielded it yet because...you know. Mk23s are really nice but I wanted to try this out!! There is some fun at the end for those of you who adore your mk23

I was curious about that gun, thanks for showing those inner barrel issues with the movement.

Watched the video, and I agree, I prefer CO2, but I guess I'm just one of those Mk23 guys.

CO2 is ideal for a NBB pistol. I attempt to run it on my hicapa and it's really a pain in the ass to maintain. Off I go to dump more money into my KJW where the only thing left in it that's KJW is the lower frame...

At some point Novy boy may finally release those CO2 Mk23 mags, but I won't hold my breath.

You really can’t beat a mk23 when you want the package deal of accuracy range and minimal noise. I got my mk2 really quiet but I had to add an integrated fart flap inside the suppressor. AND I haven’t shot it outside yet to make sure my flap doesn’t interfere.

*edit* I hate not being able to upgrade inner barrel and hop on the mk2. Working on destroying an m700 chamber to work with the mk2 internals. Going to try and use a maple leaf bucking and panthera nub...but my hopes aren’t high since it’s such a small area to fit all that haha.

That made me just think of something.. What about an integrated fart flap on the ssx23. .. The suppressor can be unscrewed and made smaller etc. What if you put some material and made a fart flap mid suppressor. I've never seen anyone do that.

Iīve seen a video of someone putting one at the beginning and one on the end of the supressor, which made it quieter.
I donīt think putting the fart flap at the middle would have a positive effect.
If you would use 2 fart flaps though, you could get it even quieter.

My biggest thing is potential interference. But yea if done correct the bb won’t hit the flap. I’d say more flaps would make it quiet. I swapped out multiple different foam types and even played around with the spacing. There wasn’t much of a sound difference. Once I added the fart flap man it was quiet!! I actually used a mouse* pad which his kinda thick. I just had to cut the flaps so they moved enough to flex open when shooting. There’s good videos out there but i might make my own version of a diy

What happens when you flap a VSR?

I tried it on my SSX23 suppressor.

I've been trying to get the damn thing to be as quiet as my silverback and nothing works. The extra diameter, and therefore volume, of the silverback allows the sound to dissipate much better, as well as the thicker metal body.

Anyway, I tried a few things. Beginning and end of suppressor (not much difference in noise), and middle and end. The latter made it quieter (still not as quiet as the silverback with 1 flap) but caused accuracy issues.

So I've relegated the SSX suppressor to its shortest setting for when I want the MK to be more compact, even if it isn't as quiet as the silverback.

I use jack pyke camo tape for my flaps. Works great as it has a fabric like component to it.

Depends. If you're volume matched or using heavier than recommended it won't have much effect other than potentially causing fliers.

If you're using a lighter bb than the C:B ratio I could see it helping... maybe?

The sound from a VSR is mostly from the cylinder area. Not the muzzle.

I LOVE my KJW Mk2. Sure it's got a couple of tweaks, but then that's what a gun's for, right? To tweak it? hehehehe

I don't care about the noise. It's an accurate shooter, solid, super cheap on CO2, and if you're close enough that I tag you with my pistol, I screwed up and let you get there. Besides, then you get shot close up, and I scared the &*^% out of you as a bonus. hahahaha. To be fair, with the hop and all, I get the same range as some AEG's so I'm never shooting under 100ft. anyways. It's an awesome piece of kit. :) Even the fibre optic sights are great. Superb low buck unit.

I'll watch the video once I get home and back to real wifi...

My biggest thing with the flap again, is the potential interference. I don’t mind it on a pistol as I use mine for pretty close up, I don’t need a range monster for a side arm. For me it’s like Incase of emergency only haha. But i don’t want to use a flap on my long range accurate primary Incase I have a good long shot that also takes some luck...and it nips the flap and misses

So I have both the Mk1 and a Mk23.
I like the MK23 for the accuracy and quietness.
With a silencer the Mk1 can be just as quiet. Or Quieter (My Mk1 with silencer is quieter than my Mk23). The Mk1 has a way better feeling as it is lighter and it does not have a thick pistol grip but the downside to that is that the mag does not have a double stack. So it only fits 17 rounds which is quite a bit less than the Mk23. (NOTE: Mk2 is heavier than the Mk1)
The main downside to the Mk1/2 is the hopup. The hopup has a nozzle on it where the bb enters the hopup chamber. This nozzle is too long and allows the bb to move back and forwards when tilting the gun. This means that when the gun is tilted forward, the bb sits against the hopup nub and this normally creates over hop. When tilted backwards, the bb has a couple of millimeters runup before hitting the nub. This means the bb does not grip the nub as well and so therefore creates a less backspin and so it under hops. You can file about 1mm off the nozzle but the issue still remains.
So, if this issue could be fixed, then the accuracy would be a lot better and I would then rate the Mk1 as the better pistol. Currently, I rate them as similar. The mk1/2 feels nicer and lighter but the Mk23 is more accurate

One other thing about the Mk1/2 is that it has an abnormal inner barrel diameter. Normal inner barrels are about 8.5mm wide but the Mk1/2 has an inner barrel of about 8.2mm. So a normal barrel will not fit in the hopup as it is too wide.

I noticed that. I drilled out a chamber to fit an r hopped AEP barrel but went too far and broke the chamber lol. An m700 chamber looks similar but it’s bulky because it takes a normal bucking and gbb barrel. It would take serious modification to the chamber and internal mk1/2 barrel housing piece to fit a gbb barrel with ML bucking. But the attempt shall be made!!
