Action: Semi-automatic, blowback, single-action only
Ammo Type: 6 mm airsoft BBs

Trigger Pull: Short with only a little bit of take up. The release is light and crisp. The blowback action resets the internal hammer/striker with each shot for that true single-action trigger. It’s also nice that the trigger has a working trigger safety.

Accuracy: In terms of velocity, the K17 was bang on averaging right around 325 FPS, right in line with KWC’s claimed 328 FPS. The temperature was not super hot inside the Sea Can Indoor Airgun Shooting Range at about 15°C or around 60°F. I managed to get a 4 inch 10 round grouping during my first test but for the shooting test that made it to the video, my grouping spread out a fair amount closer to 6-8 inches. I did play around with the internal hop-up because the pistol likes to shoot low and to the right. I thought that if I adjusted it up, I'd be able to get shots higher on target but this adjustment only seemed to make the gun shoot a little bit less accurately for me.

Build Quality: The KWC K17 feels really good. I’m going to say it’s probably one of the nicest KWC CO2 blowback pistols I have had in my hands to date. The finish is really nice, the polymer frame is flawless, and fit is really good with nice, tight tolerances throughout.

Realism: The K17 Pistol is super realistic in terms of looking and functioning like a real steel gun. All the parts function as you would expect them to, including the ability to field strip, which gives you easy access to the hop-up. In terms of being a replica, it does look similar to a Glock with some differences like the trigger guard, slide cut-outs, extended beaver tail, and a straighter pistol grip.

Pros:

  • Good weight with very solid feel to it
  • Full blowback action will produce good recoil
  • Full-size drop-out metal magazine
  • Short and light single-action only trigger
  • No ugly markings or warnings to detract from realism
  • Has some bling with the gold barrel and vented slide
  • Field strips like the real steel version
  • White dot sights front and back
  • Hop-up adjusts for elevation as needed
  • Working trigger safety along with serial number safety

Cons:

  • Full blowback action will produce lower FPS and use up more CO2
  • Some may not like the gold barrel

Comments: I really like the KWC K17. It may even be one of my favorite CO2 blowback pistols from KWC to date. I can say that the KWC K17 shoots really nicely with a snappy heavy blowback action and the trigger is nice, short, and light. The pistol feels really good in the hand to shoot, with a nice balance and weight to it. It feels like quality! The only thing I’m not a huge fan of is the gold barrel but that’s more of a personal preference. You may really like the gold bling! I could easily polish the barrel to more of a stainless finish if I wanted to and maybe I will. All in all, if you’re looking for a modern pistol design then the K17 is going to fit the bill. If you’re more into steel BB guns then you can get the BB version of the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback Pistol in our online store!

This review was plagued with nothing but recording issues during the target accuracy portion of the review. I had to record it 6 separate times for reasons like: Two battery issues, one wrong setting in my camera, a memory card issue (wasn’t reading) and in one test I had a piece of cardboard covering a camera lens!!! Anyway I did get it done in the end but it was very frustrating!

So how did the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol perform for me during this Field Test Shooting Video? I would have to say a bit hot and cold. In terms of velocity, the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol was bang on averaging right around 325 fps which was right in line with KWC’s 328 fps claim. And the temperature was not super hot inside the Sea Can Indoor Airgun Shooting Range. About 15 degrees Celsius or around 60 degrees Fahrenheit...
