This weapon that I am introducing to you is the Knight's Armament Personal Defense Weapon or KAC PDW for short by a company based in Thailand by the name of the Vega Force Company. The background of this weapon is Knight's Arm. Co (Headquarters based in Florida) wanted a rifle like weapon but compact and lightweight, but would use rifle like caliber. With this new weapon came a new 6x35mm round that KAC actually used to build the weapon around it on a computer based system. The PDW is rather new to the weapons market, only being around since 2006 and somewhat still in the experimental stage.
The rifle comes with a KAC style 120 round magazine, which feeds correctly if taken care of. The weapon can take M4 standard magazines whether high quality or low quality mags. Rifle comes standard with a black KAC PDW flash hider and PEQ-15 battery box (with stickers to arrange on box for realism). Rifle works exceptionally well, accurate even though comes with a short barrel (there are two models, 10 inch and 8 inch barrel set ups). The rifle is very lightweight though made of full metal with the exception of pistol grip and butt-pad. Some versions come with an added suppressor and a QD sling mount. It has a working bolt catch, though only for exposing the hop-up adjustment. No electric blow-back or the like. Overall, the stock rifle is great, but you will find yourself wanting to upgrade it due to the motor. VFC is known for their great quality weapon replicas, but their motors are not always the strongest and have a tendency to overheat when using full auto for a prolonged period.
As stated previously before above, the motor may fail or weaken itself and cannot handle the stock spring. The selector switch on the right side of the rifle is a little loose, not by much. Other than that there are absolutely no problems with the rifle.
On a side note, just to warn you. This rifle is not as easy as an M4 to take down and pull apart.
At the moment, I have installed a new Systema Energy Motor a new Prometheus 363mm (roughly 14 inches) barrel. With that I have new Lonex Flash M4 magazines and Special Forces Suppressor. I purchased the QD sling mount due to mine not already provided with rifle. I also added a MOSFET (mainly controls current of a Lipo battery),vertical foregrip, and a 552 EOTech Holographic sight with EOLad attachment (which sadly I don't have a pic with it). I have not touched the internals with the exception of the motor, spring, and piston. I now have an Fps of 320-330, perfect for CQB restricted airsoft sites.
Works well for CQC, mainly because this is the rifle's purpose in airsoft. A great CQC weapon. When using the rifle even when stock is not folded in CQC is perfect and easy to maneuver than an M4 or G36c. With a red dot or holographic sight you will do exceptionally well against your opposing force. I do not recommend using the iron sights with a mask or goggles due to you may not be able to look down the sights as well as with glasses. Some can if they have a smaller face.
With the upgrades I have installed I can now use it as a filed tactical rifle rather than just CQC. On the field I have never seen another one of my rifle yet, not even a clone. On the field I get an exception amount of kills with it, though I do covert tactics and flank around quietly around the enemy with my team. I do hear the "Oohs and Wows" because my rifle is so rare.
Overall, this is a great weapon replica. Not meant for beginners. With care this rifle will last an entire airsofter's career. I've had mine since February of 2011 and I use it constantly at airsoft games for long periods of time. I love my PDW and will never trade it for another rifle. Wear and tear will happen as any rifle/pistol/shotgun will get, though maybe more where I am due to it being Florida. Rust only builds on few parts of the rifle, but I'm in Florida so the humidity helps to rust it as well. The few parts that rust builds on are the mag release, release pins, and the selector switch only, nothing else. My rifle as been dropped, but it being VFC it can take it. Not that I'm telling you to do a stress test on it. For how much you pay for it I wouldn't do it. To conclude, it's a great rifle to use own, and play with.
