Hi guys.

I'm interested in getting a Sig Sauer P229 as a side-arm at somepoint in the future (probably next January). I've looked around, but have only been able to find 1 make - KJW.

The thing is - Wolf Armouries suggest that this is better as a "collectors pistol" and that it isn't 100% skirmishable. Does anyone have a KJW P229, or used one? Anyone seen one used in a game before? I've also read mixed things about KJW, and I'd like to know if anyone here has any experience with them, so that I don't end up buying a paper-weight, or spending more money trying to fix it.

failing that, does anyone know of another Sig-Sauer P229 in airsoft?

Cheers.

Thankyou for linking that Kejot.
So, there are 2 P229s.

Tanaka makes the external version I want - but evidently isn't a good skirmisher.

However, has anyone used a KJW P229? (Or P226, as they are pretty similar) As, as much as I'd like a P229 navy, I'd just like a skirmishable pistol.

Cheers.
