The King Arms KA17 Custom l is a fantastic Glock replica. Its performance is great and has good range.
The frame for the KA17 is constructed using good quality polymer and has a textured grip.
The trigger has a trigger safety in it so if something catches the edge of the trigger it won't go off. The main safety for the pistol is located underneath the front end of the frame and can be pushed rearwards to engage the safety. The outer barrel is silver and is cut to reduce weight. The sights are fixed and black with white markings to assist with quick aiming.
The slide is made from aluminium alloy and has a lightening cut on the top to reduce weight. The rest of the slide has been CNC'd to give the pistol a truly unique look and provide superior grip when racking the slide. To remove the slide and access the hop unit you rack the slide back pull down the black tabs on either side of the frame and then push the slide forward. You will then find underneath the hop wheel. Once adjusted just pull the slide back onto the pistol and off you go. The slide is finished with anodized paint.
The performance of the KA17 series is phenomenal. It's snappy and happily shoots over 25 metres. Not only does this run off its own 25 round magazines but it will also run off Tokyo Marui Glock magazines.

To buy an airsoft weapon in the UK you must have a valid airsoft defence.
This is not a licence, it is basically just proof that you intend to buy an airsoft weapon for use in airsoft.
An airsoft defence could be a UKARA or membership with the British Airsoft Club, and various other forms of defence.
You can only obtain an airsoft defence once you are over the age of 18.
To get an airsoft defence the law is that you should play at least 3 games of airsoft, and that you must have been playing for at least two months.
You can still buy an airsoft gun without a defence, provided you are 18 or older. If you choose to do this we would, by law, two tone (paint in a bright colour) parts of your chosen weapon. This is because an airsoft gun is considered a RIF aka Realistic Imitation Firearm, because they are so close to the real steel, whereas when you paint parts of it in a bright colour it becomes an IF aka Imitation Firearm. The reason being that the bright colours make it look less realistic to the public, and therefor less likely to be mistaken as real, were it to be used for any other purpose than airsoft.
When you order a gun from us you will need to add your defence details in the comments section of the cart. If you do not have a defence you will need to write the colour that you wish to be used for two toning your airsoft weapon.
Here is what's stated in the VCRA (Violent Crime Reduction) Act:
For airsoft skirmishing, the Association of British Airsoft is putting in place arrangements to allow retailers to check that individual purchasers are members of a genuine skirmishing club or site. The key elements of these arrangements are:
1. new players must play at least 3 (three) times in a period of not less than two months before being offered membership
2. membership cards with a photograph and recognised format will be issued for production to retailers
3. A central database will be set up for retailers to cross-check a purchaser’s details
4. member’s entry on the database will be deleted if unused for 12 months.
The defence for airsoft skirmishing can apply to individual players because their purchase of realistic imitation firearms for this purpose is considered part of the “holding” of a skirmishing event.
