PostSubject: KSC Sig Sauer P230 HW Japan Version   Tue Sep 18, 2012 7:11 pm

Hello all friends,

Well, today another review of a little model gun, the KSC Sig Sauer P230, ABS Heavy Weight version, Japanese version. Yes, another version exists (not HW) without safety lever and without lanyard ring. I always prefer to buy HW version so my choice is this Japan version.





1 / Let's go .

The box is quite little and it used for the airsoft too.





We have all needed in the box and all is well made as usual for a Japanese model gun :

- The model gun in ABS HW
- 6 KSC cartridges
- A loading tool, the same than the M93R from KSC, a little plastic tube.
- A key to disassemble the firing pin
- A very good user's manual
- A KSC catalogue of airsoft and model gun models
- A paper which is maybe the warranty.




2 / Close up .


This model gun is a Japanese model gun so it's well finished. Nothing move when you shack the gun. The gun is quite little and quite similar to the Walther PPK on several points.







When we look closer, we see we have some metal parts like the hammer, the trigger, de-cocking lever, the internals parts, etc... The barrel seems (Wink)to be metal but not,it's plastic plated with chrome.

On the gun we find a lot of markings but as usual, the markings on ABS are always less showy than on the metal .





Even on the grip.

Little thing that I like, it's the silver at the beginning of the barrel on the eject chamber here :



You see also the little red line which means that a cart is ready to fire Smile

The sights are "classic" :



At last look at the weight of this little thing :


Without carts of course Smile (Against 300 for the no HW version of the P230)


3 / Use.

It's a semi automatic pistol without slide stop lever. It's the same system than the Walther PPK :
When the mag is empty, the slide stops and you must remove the mag, put others carts in (or not) and pull again the slide to chamber.

The mag are small and I think you can put 7 +1 carts.






The cartridges are similar to the carts for the M93R by KSC but not the same, this ones are smaller.





The de cocking lever works like all the Sig, pull hammer and push slowly the decok lerver and the hammer will go down.



The default position for the safety lever is when you have the red dot :



When you push down, you can't pull trigger.


You can pull hammer or rack slide, the safety goes off :


4 / Disassemble .

To disassemble the gun, push down the lever here (You can see the KSC logo Wink )



Pull the slide backwards , upwards and forwards : Like PPK.




After fire, you can unscrew firing pin and wash it easily.Yes, when you unscrew, the firing pin falls Smile


5 / Summary.

Well, that's a very beautiful model gun Smile Well made and with a good size for my little hands lol.
The sound of fire is not very loud Sad but the cart is ejected very far Smile .
Really happy of this model gun and more original than a PPK.
Thanks Mister KSC!

Wink

Hello JohnnyV,

Like I said a little bit at the end of the review, this gun fires very well except the sound which is not enough loud for me. I like the "big bang" and here it's not too loud. The ejection is really effective, the cart flies very far. No jam if the carts are well prepared.
Like my 93r by KSC, this one works really well Smile

PS : review edited for the weight Wink

I don't reckon the barrel's in metal...it's plastic plated with chrome instead (that's why it feels cold in touch)...

If you don't believe it then I'll recommend you to cut up the barrel and see what's inside Twisted Evil ...

Seriously Momo...SD release the metal kit for it (yes especially for modelgun not just airsoft): I'd considered the silver kit only the barrel's completely blocked and I hate to have the original black parts to go with it (i.e. decocker/take down lever etc)...

Thanks Jim for the precision.
So I'm really sorry about my mistake but I swear it looks like metal !!
It's cold, true but I must check (not sure to cut up Smile ).

Maybe you're right Jim because you are more specialist than me.

Momo,

As Jim mentioned, the barrel is made from plastic, not metal unfortunately.

If the barrel's in metal then KSC's President will share the same fate with Tanaka's President earlier on (that gas-charge shell saga)...not trying to pinpoint you Momo Wink
