Trigger Pull: The KWC Makarov has a double-action only trigger and hammer. The trigger is long and a bit heavy, but still very usable.
Accuracy: The Makarov performed very well in the shooting test. It shot fairly well centered, getting all five shots in the black bullseye. This is good since the gun does not have adjustable sights! The pistol shot a very surprising 480 FPS, well over the claimed factory 430 FPS. It shot very accurately out to ranges of 50 feet or so. From a single CO2 I was able to get 112 shots from the KWC Makarov before I noticed a significant power drop.
Build Quality: This Makarov replica is not going to win a prize for build quality, as some shortcuts have been made to keep the price down on the model. However, it is built with mostly metal parts and it performed perfectly for me during my testing. It did weigh in a bit heavy, and it has reasonable fit and finish to it.
Realism: In terms of being a good Makarov replica, the KWC for sure looks the part, size, and overall weight. The KWC Makarov has a nice recessed barrel and a full size drop out metal magazine. I was not a big fan of the screws on the right side slide.
Comments: To be honest when I got the KWC airsoft Makarov, I was not all that awestruck. The lack of a working slide, DOA trigger, and screw holes in the slide put me off a bit. I did warm up to the pistol once I shot it. I was surprised by the high FPS and how accurate it was for such a low cost airsoft pistol. I can see this gun being used as a backup or sidearm in an outdoors style airsoft game where you may need to shoot targets out at range where other lower powered pistols just would not be able to get out to. In my books you cannot go wrong choosing this Makarov replica!
