Im very surprised nobody threw up a SHOT thread yet, but then again, there isn't much that's truly new.
Were getting more AEGs with bolt stop from KWA and from Elite force, namely KWAs new TK45 and Elite Force's Tayver. there really isnt a lot of details right now even though we are half way through SHOT cause there could be more.
Elite force is also releasing, at some point, an MP7 with a "standard V2 gear set", so thats really cool. Wonder what other parts end up being standard parts?
Theres some extra info for the elite force stuff here
The Ronin TK45 should be coming out in KWAs AEG 2.5 system (bolt lock) and in their AEG 3 system (bolt lock and recoil). It uses a proprietary mag instead of something similar to the Kriss vector AEG (though, its still obviously an FU to Kriss for whatever reason)
Elite force delayed the CO2 GBB MP40 cause they are apparently implementing a hop up for the american release of the 6mm model, which is supposed to be this year finally.
The new Elite force Tayver comes with "avalon" internals (isnt avalon vfc?) with a computer mosfet and a bolt stop function. Hopefully they use similar mags to either KWAs bolt stop M4s or Maruis next gen. there is only a short mention of the tayvers here, i'll try to find more
Jag precision are releasing gen 2 scatterguns, which show a nice improvement to performance and reliability, but one of the models is 2 of the *fruitcage*ers strapped together for double barrel pump action goodness.
Jag also has a Windrunner (they call it the vanquish arms sniper rifle) in the pipe. like the Cheytac m200, but without the wonky barrel shroud. takes down like the real one and uses VSR buckings and AEG springs. Also is overall smaller and lighter weight than a full .408 or .50 cal rifle. as if chambered in maybe .308 or .300wmr. Very cool rifle and they also mentioned CO2 bolts are planned.
Edit: I was half listening to jet talk about the tayver, i misheard the shenanigans. there is no bolt lock on the new tayver with the avalon internals. my bad.
