Las Vegas, NV and City of Industry, CA – January 18th, 2011 – The 2GX gearbox was designed to be a foundation for which all future KWA Airsoft Electric Guns (AEG) would be based upon. 2011 will see the further progression of its design with the introduction of the new Electric Recoil Gun (ERG) series.
The ERGs utilize KWA’s patented Kinetic Feedback System (KFS) to generate simulated recoil with every shot fired. The simulated recoil adds feedback and enhances user experience. Specially designed ERG magazines feature an electric cutoff, preventing the rifle from firing after the magazine has been emptied. Every ERG will be equipped with KWA’s new precision hop-up. The new hop-up design allows for precision adjustment and control.
The RM4 series was designed to closely simulate features found in its firearm counterpart. A fully operational bolt catch is now a standard feature. The bolt catch will lock after the last round has been fired and must be depressed after a new magazine is loaded before it can be fired again. The ability to lock back the bolt plate also gives users easier access to the hop-up, making adjustments easier and less time-consuming. Existing KM4 AEG magazines are compatible with the new system, however bolt catch features will only work with RM4 magazines. Availability and pricing will be announced at a later date.
After much anticipation, KWA will be releasing its AKR series. Three models will be introduced: the AKR-74SU, AKR-74M, and AKR-74MFS. Each will offer unique features giving users flexibility for CQB or outdoor use. Every model will feature the KFS system, incorporating all the new performance features. Like the RM4 magazines, AKR magazines will have the electric cutoff, preventing the rifle from firing after the last round. Availability and pricing will be announced at a later date.
KWA leads the industry with innovative and high performing airsoft products by combining precision engineering and a passion to outperform. With unparalleled customer and warranty service, KWA strives to ensure that all of its products are of the highest quality and its customers are properly cared for. The introduction of the 2GX AEG (Airsoft Electric Gun) gearbox and the NS2 GBB system has set a new standard in airsoft technology.

Tokyo Marui, as they do each year, will be attending the 49th Shizuoka Hobby Show from Thursday, May 13th till Sunday, May 16th 2010 and will be revealing an assortment of new products.
Taking cue from the released teaser images, Tokyo Marui will be expanding the line of High Cycle AEGs to include the M4 series, a Walther PPK (Waffen SS Officer’s model) GBB, black Desert Warrior 4.3, maybe a Larue Tactical (note the SPR-E mount) licensed AEG? Maybe a G18C GBB? (more to the point, a licensed Glock?!).
All will be revealed at the 49th Shizuoka Hobby Show. The venue is not mentioned, but it should be at Twin Messe Shizuoka Convention Center.

King Arms is expanding their range of Smith & Wesson Military & Police M&P15 line of AEGs. King Arms first M&P rifle was the M&P15 MOE Flat Dark Earth, they are now complimenting it with the M&P15T, M&P15X and M&P15PSX.
First is the M&P15T, S&W’s 16" barrelled version with it’s 10" free-float Modular Rail Foreend (MRF), unfortunately King Arms, in it’s version, cuts it short with a 14" barrel but all other features appear to be faithfully replicated such as the front and rear Troy style Folding Battle Sights and supplied rail covers. FPS is around the 320-240 mark.
Next is the M&P15X, S&W’s 16" barrelled version with it’s new drop-in Tactical Rail Handguard and A2 front sight. King Arms has expressed creative freedom and fitted its version with a carbine length 10.5" barrel but all other features are faithfully replicated such as the Troy style rear Folding Battle Sight. FPS is 320-340.
Lastly is the M&P15PSX, S&W’s Gas Piston version of the M&P15, like the M&P15T King Arms version is shy of 2 inches in the barrel department. The Gas Piston is replicated albeit with a bastardized integrated front sight and includes the Troy style rear Folding Battle Sight. FPS is 320-240.
I’m not normally a stickler for realism but King Arms has used the model nomenclature of the real steel line of M&P15’s so it’s puzzling why they strayed from the features. All the AEG’s have fully licensed S&W trademarks faithfully replicated in all the right places and each model has a unique serial number. Hop-up is adjustable from the bolt locked back which features a realistic bolt release. All models come with a PEQ-15 battery box. No price or date yet.
It’s that time of the week to try and catch up on some of the new videos released by the various airsoft manufacturers. I’ve built a new media display system that will enable the blog to serve multiple video elements on one page and present each video in a snazzy lightbox. Enjoy.
