KWA Releasing Lithium Polymer Ready AEG

A press release from Peter at KWA.

KM4A1-PressPhotoRosemead, CA - August 20, 2007 - KWA USA today announced it is in the final stages of releasing it?s first Lithium Polymer (LiPo) ready AEG, the KWA KM4A1 Carbine. The new AEG was engineered specifically to take full advantage of today?s advanced battery technology and provide airsoft enthusiasts with the experience of absolute performance.

Lithium Polymer (LiPo) batteries provide higher capacity and superior performance surpassing the more commonly available Nickel Cadium (NiCd) and Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMh) batteries. However, using the LiPo power source requires the highest quality of internal components. To handle the extra power of LiPo batteries, the KM4A1 is equipped with a reinforced metal gearbox utilizing KWA?s exclusive 8 and 9 mm ball bearing bushing combination and case hardened, precision metal gear sets. Heavy duty springs and high-torque motors are matched for optimum results. High-grade metal alloy are used for the production of the upper and lower receivers. The KWA KM4A1 is capable of firing more than 20 rounds per second and well over 400 feet per second when powered by an 11.1v Lithium Polymer battery.

The decision to develop LiPo-Ready products came after the successful introduction of KWA?s high performance AEG, the KG36C. Positive feedbacks and overwhelming demands from the industry accelerated the engineering of an AEG capable of utilizing the LiPo power source. The KWA KM4A1 will be released in the US in mid September 2007 and will only be available through KWA USA Authorized Resellers. Suggested retail price for the KWA KM4A1 Carbine will be $359.95.

Echo1 USA secures real firearms License

Another Arnie’s news flash!

It looks like Echo1 USA has taken a more serious line in the Airsoft industry with the securing of license rights to produce fully trademarked and logo’ed weapons produced by Vector Arms. This is certainly going to cause a huge stir in the “Clone/ACM” debate as to whether or not Echo1 USA can truly be considered a Clone company anymore!

Vector Arms 2Gents,

ECHO1 announce their new products lines: Vector Arms licensed MP5 and AK series.
Vector Arms is a US firearms company famous for AK and MP5 series. Our AK CPM will be available within one month. Full metal MP5 series is available now!
