By Charles from USA on 2012-09-03 09:43:17Things I liked:I train regularly with the Beretta M92 and was looking for a training pistol I could use without the time and expense of driving to a pistol range. I found it in the KWA M9 PTP (Professional Training Pistol). The KWA M9 PTP is a high quality, properly functioning M9/M92 replica highly recommended as a training pistol. Or just one fun to shoot. It fits my duty and training holsters and has full operating controls to include the decocking feature of the safety that is lacking in some other M9 airsofts. No bogus Beretta trademarks (although this may be a negative for some.) The KWA NS2 magazines are leak free. With the KWA-recommended .25g BBs the pistol chronographs at 320fps +/- 2%. Nice consistent muzzle velocity for a GBB.
Things I would have changed:The trigger weight is exceedingly light and less than half the weight of the actual Beretta. The 4.5 pound DA trigger weight is easy to control but will be deceiving when transitioning to the real Beretta.
What others should know:The safety locks the slide shut. Not prototypical but a great aid when holstering the pistol. The pistol field strips like the real pistol but be careful as the recoil spring and guide will leap out.

By Joel from USA on 2013-03-16 19:54:09Things I liked:Same dimensions and operation as my 96A1
Things I would have changed:Needs heavier trigger pull for both DA and SA, fix half-cock so it engages 100% of the time, needs stronger springs (trigger spring, et c.).
What others should know:This refurbished M9 PTP arrived incomplete. It had no slide lock spring installed, and the trigger spring broke before actual use. However, it appears that real Beretta M9 and 90 series springs will fit, and much of that armory work looks similar. I will give it a try. While the overall weight is close to the real M9, most of the weight for the KWA is in the frame, and the slide assembly is light. The opposite is true for the real deal. But I expected as much, and so should you.
