Ya the K&B might be better. At least it's ABC BB. I have never actually seen one here. The LAs are pretty good for weight and power. Just the cost is a bit high for new. I tend to get them for $20 at swap meets though, as glow is out of favour lately. Probably have 5 or 10. I really am more attracted to the ASP/Magnum blue head .15s. They don't seem available any more though. They go pretty good. Not sure if the K&B would be competitive with them? I don't know if the .15 LA is Chinese now, the .46 AX has been for a while. Really ASP is more reasonable and Chinese anyway. Being in a different country than most of you guys, it really doesn't matter what country stuff is from. The US doesn't keep us as hostages though I guess. Not like China. Trump is at least the devil we know. :-) Not trying to be political, just that it is a factor sometimes.

I have one of the KB .18 Aero engines, I wrote a thread about it here at the time too: KB .18 Aero
Long story short, it is not a bad engine really, but it is has less power than the ASP .15 XLS engine.
