Hi friends!

Welcome back to the blog! We’re once again smashing these reviews out! Today we’re looking at the KWA RONIN 47 from Extreme Airsoft (you can check out the unboxing here!) and although we aren’t playing at the moment, I took this out on the target course at Extreme Airsoft so I can give you my thoughts on this tactical AK.

The KWA RONIN 47 is KWA’s answer to the tactical AK. Like the KWA KAIJU47 that I reviewed earlier in the week, it also has a 7″ MLOK handguard, a Gen. 2 PDW ‘Tanker’ stock, the new “Cutter” muzzle brake and a paddle-style magazine release. The rail and upper receiver are metal, and the lower receiver is an Aluminium mix. It also has the PTS Enhanced Polymer Grip and the Enhanced Back-Up Ironsights. It looks sleek in all black.

As for the internals, it also has the AEG 2.5 gearbox that many of the other KWA range have, the VPS system - the Variable Performance System - that enables the player to adjust the FPS with the use of a tool (which is included in the box), a reinforced radiused mech box and it is ready for a MOSFET to be dropped in (but doesn’t have one as standard). The RONIN 47 can be powered by either a NiMh or LiPo/LiFe battery and it’s (back) wired to Deans for a more reliable connection. Like most PDW style stocks the battery space is limited, but there are aftermarket parts such as the Airtech TBEU Tanker Battery Extension that are compatible with this model and is available from Extreme as well which will give you more room and make it easier to battery up. Even with the battery extension, the Titan Power batteries are a tight fit but will fit at a push. There are of course other brands such as Nuprol who make batteries that do fit. Although the lack of battery space isn’t a huge issue, it is something to be aware of.

In the box, it comes with one proprietary black KWA RN47 120-round magazine and a tool to adjust the VPS system along with all the necessary paperwork.

I also ran this through the speed course we created at Extreme Airsoft (it’s really had a hammering recently). After I spent some time with the KAIJU 47 (that has the GATE Titan MOSFET) I spent a good couple of hours on the target system with the RONIN 47 to see if there were any big differences. Like the KAIJU 47, it fired consistently with no issues on both semi and full auto mode (as it doesn’t have the Titan we didn’t swap out full auto for burst fire). As it’s the same weight and build as the KAIJU 47 it’s also easy to manoeuvre around the course and wasn’t too long even with the stock fully extended.

As for price, the RONIN 47 retails from Extreme Airsoft for £359.99.
