A press release from Peter at KWA.
Rosemead, 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.

The results are up in the review section of the forums and let me tell you, members with gear boxes such as the Echo 1, JG and JLS who are having problems shimming and aligning are in for a treat!
Go check it out here!
I have just received word that an ACM company will be releasing the Japanese Self Defense Force (JSDF) Type 89 Assault Rifle, right now details are a little vague as to if it will be the solid or folding skeleton style stock. Although we do know that it will have a mechanical 3 round burst gear box (Version 8 gearbox).
Now some might proclaim this to be a hoax, but this has come from a very reliable source and they have also secured as an exclusive sample for review which should be with us next week!
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!
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!
ICS has sent us some exclusive images of the soon to be released ICS AK74-M and AK74-S which we covered on the news section back in March 2007. It looks like these will be available to customers either at the end of August to Mid-September. Right now we don’t have any pricing or other features of the gun, but as the saying goes ” A picture is worth a thousand words!”
The guys at South West Airsoft Trading have been in touch with a limited period special offer for all Arnies members:
