SAFETY GUIDELINES

WARNING! Failure to follow safety guidelines may result in serious injury.

Safety Distance

The effective shooting range is approximately 75 feet. BBs fired from this Airsoft gun may travel further than intended. Make certain that you have an adequate backstop.

Eye Protection

Eye protection should be worn at all times when both shooting and maintaining your Airsoft gun. Protect your eyes from silicone spray and uncaptured BBs under spring pressure while performing maintenance on your Airsoft gun.

Assume Every Gun is Always Loaded

Until you are personally convinced otherwise, treat every gun as if it were loaded. Do not assume the chamber is empty based on your memory or someone else�s words. Always visually check to confirm chamber is empty. Remove the magazine to look for an empty chamber.

Beware of Barrel Obstructions

Ensure the Airsoft gun barrel is free of obstructions before you fire the gun. Even the smallest obstruction such as a stuck cleaning patch or even lubrication can cause a misfire or malfunction.

Muzzle Control

Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. Never point the muzzle at a person or object that you do not intend to shoot.

Keep Your Safety On

Keep your safety on until your sights are aligned on your target and you are ready to fire.

Keep Your Finger off the Trigger

Keep your finger off the trigger and out of the trigger guard until your sights are aligned on your target and you are ready to fire.

WARNING! Airsoft BBs can be a choking hazard. Keep them away from children.

Identify Your Target and Backstop

Before you pull the trigger, make certain of your target and what is beyond it. The Airsoft gun should never be fired at surfaces where BBs are likely to ricochet in unpredictable directions such as rocks, glass, water, or other hard surfaces.

WARNING! Adult supervision is required for any person under the age of 18.

Failure to Fire

If the Airsoft gun fails to fire, misfires, or malfunctions, do not look into the barrel. BBs can become lodged into the chamber, and serious eye injury may occur.

Maintain Your Gun Properly

Performing proper maintenance, as outlined in this manual, ensures that your Airsoft gun will be safe to shoot and will perform to design specifications for many years. Alterations, modifications or adjustments may damage your Airsoft gun, make it unsafe to shoot, and will void warranty claims.

Store Your Gun Safely

Always store the Airsoft gun in a safe place, and out of reach of children. Always transport the Airsoft gun in a carrying case; never display the Airsoft gun in a public place. Keep the safety engaged, remove the magazine before storing the Airsoft gun. Remember: it is your responsibility to take every reasonable precaution to secure your Airsoft gun.

Orange Tip

The orange tip on Airsoft guns helps law enforcement distinguish between the replica guns from their real firearm counterparts. Altering the coloration or markings required by state or Federal law or regulations so as to make the product look more like a firearm is dangerous and may be a crime. Operator assumes all risks and responsibility when doing so.

Hazards of Being Mistaken for a Real Firearm

Airsoft guns have been mistaken by Police and Law Enforcement for real firearms and can result in serious injury or even death. It is strongly advised to operate the Airsoft gun at a safe and legal location. In the event that you are approached by Law Enforcement personnel, you must comply with their instructions to avoid any incident.

Alcohol, Medications, and Drugs

Do not handle or operate your Airsoft gun while under the influence of alcohol, medication, or drugs.

Your Responsibility

Your Airsoft gun is well-engineered and manufactured to the highest standards. It was carefully inspected before it was packaged and shipped from our factory. Its safe use depends on you alone. You are the ultimate safety device. Like many other devices, your Airsoft gun is safe unless handled in an irresponsible or uneducated manner.

FUNCTIONS AND FEATURES

M9 PTP

The M9 PTP was developed exclusively as a durable professional training weapon. What sets the M9 PTP apart from the competition is the new KWA internal gas delivery system. Almost every part of the gas system has been overhauled and re-engineered to increase efficiency and reliability. The heart of the new system is a new advance lightweight gas piston that increases the weapon cycle rate which provides for a faster and more realistic blow back action.

The new M9 PTP uses a new outer barrel design with integrated feed ramp and locking block for positive feeding and reduced lockup time. The frame and slide of the M9 PTP is constructed from high quality alloy steel and is made to a 1:1 ratio of the real firearm it replicates. Weights are strategically distributed during production process to closely match the weight and balance of a real firearm. Functional features such as the slide catch and hammer decock safety are faithfully replicated and add to the realism. Beveled magazine well aids in quick and accurate reload. Even the M9 PTP magazine has been completely redesigned to compliment the new gas system. Instead of metal stamping, the new magazine is milled from a solid piece of alloy steel bar stock. New O-ring designed needle valve prevents excessive gas from escaping during gas fill ups.

M9 TACTICAL PTP

Developed in consultation with top tactical trainers, the M9 TACTICAL PTP feature the KWA NS2 gas system to deliver powerful blow back action that adds realism to any firearm training. The safety mechanism is faithfully replicated to ensure safety principles can be incorporated into training exercises. Basic field servicing is accurate to their firearm counterparts. To help develop muscle memory, every PTP model is weight balanced to duplicate the actual weight of a firearm with a fully loaded magazine.

The M9 Tactical PTP has all the features found on the standard M9 PTP with the addition of MIL-SPEC-1913 (Pictanny) rails that enables quick attachment of tactical lights and laser devices. The slide and frame are constructed from high quality alloy steel machined to precision tolerances. High impact polymer is used for the construction of the outer barrel because of its impact resistance property and self-lubricating feature.

CHARGING GAS

1.     Release magazine by pressing magazine catch.

2.     Push the gas canister nozzle into the charging valve. Make sure the canister is in a vertical position when charging.

3.     Charge magazine until gas overflows from charging valve.

WARNING! Avoid allowing magazine to drop freely onto hard surfaces; it may damage the magazine.

Note: It is normal that you may experience minor leaking from charging valve during charging due to high pressure built up inside magazine. It is recommended to keep gas release valve slightly oiled. Ideal temperature for shooting is room temperature.

You may experience a delay action if surrounding temperature drops below 68� F. Remember, do not expose magazine directly under the sun or incinerate the magazine, it may cause bursting. It is strongly recommended to empty gas from magazine after shooting. Be sure to avoid direct gas contact with eyes or skin when gas is being released, it will cause cold burns.

Green Gas safety tips:

   Check canister for any cracks or leaks before using

   Do not expose the canister to temperature over 104� F

   Do not leave the canister directly over fire

   Do not heat the canister

   Keep the canister away from direct sunlight

Do not leave the canister in vehicles

Back to Top

 

OPEN SLIDE

The slide will remain open after the last BB has been fired and ejected. Remove empty magazine and replace it with a loaded magazine, release the slide stop, the first BB will be automatically loaded into the chamber.

Note: It is important to treat your gun as if it were loaded even with the slide open.

Back to Top

 

AFTER SHOOTING

Remove magazine first and visually examine the open chamber to check for clearance.

Make sure both magazine and chamber are clear without BBs, then ENGAGE THE SAFETY SWITCH.

Back to Top

 

HOP-UP SYSTEM

The Hop Up device is one of KWA standard features. Hop gives Airsoft BBs greater stability, further travel and increased accuracy. Being light-weight, Airsoft BBs can be affected by wind when fired. With the Hop up system, the trajectory of the Airsoft BBs can be adjusted according to the surroundings or environment.

HOP-UP ADJUSTMENT

Make sure the magazine is loaded and that you have at least 65 feet clearance for test fire before making any adjustments.

1. Test fire gun for 10 ~ 20 rounds and observe the BB travelling pattern.

2. Remove magazine.

3. Open the slide and place adjusting tool into slotted chamber ring. Turn adjusting ring 1/4 inch at a time.

4. Turn ring counter clockwise if BBs go downward. Turn ring clockwise if BBs go upward.

5. Adjust Test Fire Adjust: Repeat the procedures until you find the proper trajectory.

GENERAL MAINTENANCE FOR KWA GAS BLOW BACK

Use only 100% Silicone oil recommended by and available at the Airsoft dealer where you purchased your KWA products. Any other type of lubricant may damage the products.

Lightly Lubricate recoil spring, cylinder and moving parts with a few drops of oil.

Lubricating seals and the o-rings are essential. Unload BBs from magazine and make sure the magazine is free of gas before you lubricate charging valve and release valve of the magazine.

Green gas is liquid propellant which tends to dry out the seals and o-rings. With lubricating silicone oil, it will extend the life of the seals and o-rings and prevent gas leaks.

Back to Top

 

OPERATING UNDER UNUSUAL CONDITIONS

Unusual conditions are defined as any condition requiring special maintenance. Perform maintenance outlined for the climate similar to your operational area.

Extreme Cold:

Operating an Airsoft gas gun in extremely cold temperatures is not recommended. Cold temperature will cause the Hop-up Bucking to harden, reducing its effectiveness. Gas will not expand properly in cold temperatures, so cycling rate and power will both be dramatically reduced.

Extreme Heat:

Operating an Airsoft gas gun in extremely hot temperatures is not recommended. Leaving the gun in direct sun light for long periods of time or operating in extremely hot areas will cause the gas to over-expand, damaging the internal workings of the gun. The increase in internal pressure from the expanding gas can also damage the seals and cause leaks in the magazine.

Dust or Sand:

Dust or sand can get into a gas gun and cause malfunctions and/or excessive wear. Keep the gun covered whenever possible. Use lubricant sparingly, as lube naturally attracts dirt and other particles. After use in a dusty area, always field strip the gun (refer to Disassembly Section) and clean any areas you can reach with a soft, lint-free cloth.
