KWA KO EVE-4!

Hey friends! 


Welcome back to the blog! In this review, we’ll be looking at one of the new polymer range of rifles from none other than KWA - the KWA Originals EVE-4



Whilst the KO: EVE-4 AEG may just be “another M4” to some, KWA has taken care and time to develop this AEG and allow her to rival her sister AEG - the Ronin T6. At 4.6 lbs, she is an entire pound lighter than the Ronin T6, but with the same great internals. 



At the front of the rifle, we have a KWA two port Muzzle Brake and a K.O.R.E 4 MLOK rail that has plenty of space for attachments such as torches, and lasers, the upper and lower receiver are both made from a high-strength polymer and have all the controls we would expect to see on a typical M4 system including the mag release and the ambidextrous fire selector that has safe, semi and full-auto modes. The side charging handle is super convenient and allows for easy hop-up adjustment. At the back of the rifle, we have a true PDW-style stock. The KO: EVE-4 comes with KO’s new slim line vertical grip and a set of PTS Enhanced Polymer Sights. 


Internally, it features the AEG 2.5+ Gearbox (that we have seen in the TK45C, the Ronin T6, the Ronin 47 and the QRF Mod series), the KWA High Torque Motor and an adjustable hop-up. It is Electronic Trigger ready and is wired to Deans or T-Plug. It also features the Variable Performance System (or VPS for short) which lets the user adjust the FPS using a tool that’s included in the box. In the specs, it states that the FPS can range from 330-380 FPS with a ROF of 18+ and it is recommended that you use an 11.1v Lipo, as with the KWA KO EVE-9. When I put her through chrono, she was firing at 339 FPS which was perfect. 


Now you know I’m a hoe for nice packaging and the KWA Originals range comes in a sleek, black branded box. On removing the replica from the box you get a feel for just how lightweight it is thanks to its polymer construction but the material doesn’t feel cheap and it feels sturdy - no wobbles, or rattles - always a good sign! It did take a little more time to battery up than the EVE-9, as the stock is less roomy. When the stock is extended, you can unclip the back of the stock and insert the battery. As the battery space in the stock is much smaller than the EVE-9, I chose to use a Nuprol stick battery that fit quite nicely but I did have to fiddle to get the wires in without trapping them when I put the cover back on - which isn’t an issue, it’s more of an observation to take a little more care. It works just like any other M4 so if you are familiar with the platform anyway it is a seamless transition. I think aesthetically it is a little plain looking, but with the pop of blue on the included mag, it’s far from boring. 


So how does it shoot? It was consistent on both semi and full-auto - and I was pleasantly surprised. It sounds great and is really fun to shoot. It chrono’d at 339 FPS (but this of course can be adjusted) with a decent rate of fire (you can check out my TikTok range test here!). It is comfortable to shoulder and easy to manipulate because of its compact size and I think it would be comfortable to use all day as it’s really lightweight. 



Included in the box, you get the KO: EVE-4 AEG replica, a set of PTS Flip-Up Iron Sights, a KWA Front Grip, a VPS Tool, Two 4-slot Picatinny Rails, a Compact BB Speedloader and a KWA MS120 Midcap magazine included. The KO: EVE-4 retails for £239.99 from Extreme Airsoft and you can use my code ‘femmefatale21’ for 5% off!
