KJ Works KP-08 Blowback Airsoft Gun




Total: $219.99

Type: Airsoft Pistol
Manufacturer: KJ Works
Model: KP-08
Materials: Metal & polymer
Weight: 931 g (2 lbs)
Barrel: Metal, non-rifled, smoothbore
Power Source: 12 g CO2 x 1
Action: Semi-automatic, blowback, single-action only
Ammo Type: 6 mm airsoft BBs
Ammo Capacity: 28 rounds
FPS: 370

Trigger Pull: What you would expect from a true 1911 single-action only trigger. Very little take-up with a smooth, crisp, and light release to it. The grip safety, like a real 1911, also works on the gun so it will need to be engaged in order for the trigger to function.

Accuracy: I placed a paper target on my ammo trap 30 feet down range and shot off 10 steady-paced rounds. I was pleased to see a roughly 3 inch grouping. There was one BB that did shoot a little bit higher then the rest of the grouping, but otherwise it would have been closer to a 2 inch grouping. I did notice that I was shooting a bit under the bullseye but this could be easily rectified by adjusting the hop-up to add some more backspin to the BB.

Build Quality: I have always been extremely impressed with the build quality of all the KJ Works airsoft guns to date. The fit and finish is the best around compared with any of my airguns. I would say KJ Works and KWA airsoft guns are comparable in terms of build quality, fit, and finish so it’s great we now offer both brands for you to choose from.

Realism: The KJ Works KP-08 Blowback Airsoft Gun is a replica of a high capacity styled tactical 1911 .45 auto and is a great-looking and functioning replica. You will not find actual Colt or other manufacturer licensing other than KJ Works on this pistol. The CO2 magazine does stick out a bit to accommodate the 12 gram CO2 but other than that, this airsoft pistol looks and works near exactly like a real 1911 tactical .45 semi-auto and is fully field-strippable. I really like the updated tactical add-ons like the tactical rail, machined trigger and hammer, white dot adjustable sights, and the much lighter polymer frame that helps keep the overall gun weight down to around 2 pounds.

Pros:

  • Metal parts where you need them, polymer frame to keep it lightweight
  • Realistic gas blowback system
  • Excellent fit and finish as always with KJ Works pistols
  • High capacity full-size drop-out magazine holds 28 rounds
  • Compatible with green gas magazines
  • Grip safety prevents accidental firing
  • White dot sights are adjustable
  • Lower receiver equipped with 20mm rail
  • Field-strippable

Cons:

  • Grips are wider than a typical single-stack 1911, may not fit small-handed users
  • No ambidextrous safety, not a problem for right handed shooters but lefties would benefit from this
  • Blowback system consumes extra CO2

Comments: This new and improved 1911 pistol replica is an upgrade from previous KJW models. A 3-hole trigger, skeletonized hammer, and polymer lower receiver provide better weight and balance. Slide serrations have been added to make cocking faster and easier. The CO2 magazine is double stacked to hold twice the amount of BBs. This is a detail oriented airsoft pistol, designed for detail oriented shooters.

Propulsion: 12 gram CO2.

The KJWORKS KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol is KJWORKS first Airsoft pistol with a polymer frame. It’s also very versatile in that you can use KJWORKS KP-05 magazines and even High-Capa Marui Mags if you won them. The red internal gas tube allows you to use pretty much any type of magazine too which means Green gas, propane and CO2 are all good to go with the KJWORKS KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol! The polymer frame really helps keep what would normally be a rather heavy Airsoft pistol a bit bit more light weigth and field friendly but you still have all the perks of a High-Capa 1911 so it’s a win win for me.

As promised this week, here is my full Field Test Shooting Video for the KJWorks KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol. Make sure to watch my Table Top Review of the KJWorks KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol if you’re looking for more details and specifications along with closeup video.

Starting with finding out the raw real world power for the KJWorks KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol, I performed the Chronograph Test using my CaldwellBallistic Precision Chronograph and put 6 shots through it using a brand new 12 gram CO2 along with .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB’s. I was able to average 350 fps which is pretty decent considering it was only around 15 degrees Celsius (60 degrees Fahrenheit). In warmer summer conditions I am sure we would easily reach around 360-370+fps...
