Apparently, I've had a KWA KRISS Vector in my house for a day or two and didn't even know it.  Apparently, someone snuck it in with the latest shipment of guns for me to review, which arrived on Tuesday.  I didn't have a chance to unbox everything until this evening and found it among the other guns.  Imagine my delight!  So it looks like I'll be reviewing this one right here on the blog sooner than I thought.

More from the ICS Booth - Shot Show 2013

Here's a little more from the ICS booth during Shot Show 2013.  This is the ICS M4 CXP AEG.  You'll noticed there are a few differences between it and your average M4.
Personally, I liked the pistol grip on it.  Very comfortable.
 They also had a tan version on display.
 This one isn't really new, but it's one of my favorites so it gets some love here.
The ICS Galil SAR AEG.
 And for my British friends or those who simply enjoy British weaponry, here is the ICS L85 AEG.

Here is a unique new item (or two).  The new ICS rifled airsoft grenade shells. 
 It was somewhat difficult to understanding the accent of the ICS rep that I dealt with, but from what I gathered, the blue tipped shells are filled with a chalk or chalk-like substance which will mark whatever object it hits when fired.  The yellow tipped shell is a training round, with no chalk. 
 They are designed to fit in the pre-existing ICS MGL revolving grenade launcher.
 Perhaps the feature I find most unique is that these new shells incorporate rifling, like you would find on the inside of a real firearm's barrel.  Apparently, these things, while powered by Green Gas or CO2, can be shot substantially farther than anything else on the market at present.  100m and beyond, was mentioned by the ICS rep.  That's a long dang way!  With that in mind, they don't sound like these would be super safe in a CQB environment, but that's only an assumption.  I don't know enough about the physics of how these things work, nor do I know at what energy level they level the grenade launcher at.

But nonetheless, it will be interesting to see how these perform.

Some of you may be asking, "What in the name of Airsoft is that beautiful beast pictured above?"  Some of you may already know.  For those that don't, that is the Ares Knights Armament Co "Chainsaw," which is an evolution of the Ares Knights Arm Co LMG.

This incredible masterpiece of winning was debuted at the Zshot/Ares booth during Shot Show last week.  This will actually be available to consumers at some point, possibly this year.

The price point on this hulking specimen of premium CNC aluminum and testosterone will likely be up in the stratosphere, so it's safe to say this is not something that will be brought to the masses.  However, for the discerning Airsoft collector, this will be a must-have.  Wallace Lau, head honcho at Z-Shot, did inform me that they're "trying to keep it under $1000." 

Look for more updates on this later in the year.

Exciting news for the Vietnam era weapon lovers out there.  Spartan Imports announced at their Shot Show booth this year that G&P will be releasing the CAR-15 AEG airsoft rifle.
It appears to be a fairly accurate representation of its firearm counterpart, including the one-piece receiver (upper & lower do not separate).

The rifle is a very solid build, and I would expect nothing less from G&P, whom, as you may know, makes really nice stuff.

Magazine is 190-round mid-cap, I believe.  I'm sure there will be a high-cap option, if there isn't already one on the market that will work.

Price point will likely be at least $350.

KWA announces sphinx sdp, KWA announces KRISS Vector AEG, KWA announces LWRC licensing, KWA News, Pyramyd Airsoft Blog, Tom Harris Media, Tominator,
Ah yes.  It seems like KWA always has an Ace up their sleeve.  Last week, for those of you that didn't know, was one of my favorite events of the year: Shot Show 2013.  It went down, as usual, in Las Vegas, Nevada, and while I was there, I stopped by the KWA booth to see what was new and exciting for 2013.  Sure, they had some cool things at their booth.  I came. I documented these things.  I left, thinking I obtained all the info there was to know.  Well, sure as I am bald, they threw a curve ball in the mix on Friday, the final day of the show.  They made more announcements previously undisclosed to the general public or even whispered in the dark corridors behind the scenes.  

For starters, one of their more exciting pistols to be released (maybe) this year, is a licensed replica of the Sphinx SDP (Special Duty Pistol) Compact.  If you've ever had the luxury of shooting a Sphinx firearm, you'd know just how wonderful these handguns are.  They're comfortable, accurate and easy to handle.  I would imagine the KWA airsoft version will cover all those bases for a home run as well.

According to the copy supplied by KWA on their website, they're marketing this as the "airsoft training counterpart to the Sphinx SDP Compact."  With a statement like that, I'd expect them to attempt to mimic the firearm in every way allowable, which, undoubtedly, will make for a great Airsoft gun.

Here is a copy of some of the features & specs, which I've literally copied & pasted from their website:
"The Sphinx SDP (Special Duty Pistol) Compact by KWA is the exclusive airsoft training counterpart to the Sphinx SDP Compact. The disassembly procedures, interchangeable grips, and standard fire controls found on the firearm are recreated. The Construction of the Sphinx SDP frame combines aluminum alloy and polymer for dubilty and weight savings."

Here are some technical specifications ("Tech Specs") on the KWA Sphinx SDP Compact:
Magazine Capacity: 21 rounds
Propellant: Green gas
Inner Barrel Diameter: 6.05mm
Weight:2.09lbs
Velocity: 340-350 FPS, with .20g BB
Special Features:
  • Gas-operated recoil blow back
  • Realistic construction & field stripping
  • Full metal alloy slide
  • Metal alloy upper frame with polymer lower frame
  • Adjustable hop-up
  • Interchangeable grip inserts
  • Ambidextrous decocking lever
  • 3-dot combat sights
  • Front and rear slide serrations
  • Accessory rail   

Some of you readers might be all current on all things Airsoft, so you may have already seen the news update on this particular gun from other channels who posted about it last week.  So let's get to the newer stuff that wasn't really talked about during the show.

Just to give you a hint or two, there is a new brand license and something cool and KRISS Vector-related.

CHECK ALL THAT OUT AFTER THE JUMP...
 

New for 2013 is a unique and somewhat controversial item, the Elite Force EF 2013 Speed Loader.  This is no ordinary speed loader, as you can see below.
This is a speed loader on HGH (Heavy Gun Hormones). 

Certainly an unconventional size and design, the EF 2013 is said to be able to load your mid-cap mags 40 rounds at a time.  According to the image above, there will be magwell adapters to fit the most common platforms currently available like the M4/M16, M14, G36, MP5 & AK47 mags. 

Read more & watch a demo video of how this speedloader works after the jump...

Elite Force has been pretty darn busy killing it over the last year. Not only have they taken up a pretty good chunk of the market share in a short amount of time, but they managed to somehow fit in time to develop more new guns. Today, we feature the Elite Force Tavor 21 Bullpup AEGs, due out soon.

While I've never really been a fan of the bullpup design when it comes to aesthetics, one cannot ignore the functionality of a compact rifle that still manages to boast of a carbine length barrel.  The firearm version of the Tavor actually has a few other performance enhancements but they don't really translate over to the Airsoft side.  Either way, as with basically everything else in their product line, Elite Force has put together a nice option for the Tavor lovers out there.  Even though these were just pre-production samples, they were very well built and gave the impression that they are going to rock some Airsoft face when they become available to the public for sale.
Keep an eye out for these guys later this year.

It seems like each year, a story breaks of someone getting their stuff jacked from the floor of Shot Show.  Last year, I suppose the biggest story was probably the Crye Precision prototype jacket that got stolen from their booth.  Well, this year, Elite Force has either decided to produce a new variation of the HK416 or they have become the victim of a most heinous crime.

See what happened after the jump...

More treats from yesterday's visit to the Elite Force booth at Shot Show 2013.  They had some new MP5 AEGs on display.  Perhaps the most exciting for me, were the two Elite line models which will be made by VFC and boast of firing modes that include safe, semi, full-auto AND 3-ROUND BURST!  Me rikey a rot (too racist?).

Check out more info on the new Elite Force HK MP5 AEG series after the jump...

If you're one of my two or three regular readers, you'll probably recall my predictions for the Red Jacket Firearms branded Airsoft guns that I thought we might see from Elite Force.  Well, looks like I wasn't too far off the beaten trail at all (Yes, I just tooted my own horn). 

At this year's Shot Show 2013, Elite Force unveiled their upcoming line of licensed Red Jacket Firearms Airsoft guns, starting with the Red Jacket 1911.

Check out the other Red Jacket Firearms models to be released later this year from Elite Force after the jump.

Well, it's here (almost).  Shot Show 2013.  A magical time when anyone with a camera and a brain will try to claim they are members of the Airsoft media and head out to Shot Show to get a look at all the exciting new toys.  I am one of those people and will have a few reports for you here on the blog from this year's Shot Show.  So be sure to check in here to the blog next week for daily updates.

Exciting News at the HK Toy Show 2013



If you haven't been paying attention to the PTS Facebook Page, then I'm glad, because today's post will come as very new and exciting news.  If you have, then my guess is that you'll probably skip over this post and that makes me a sad little panda.

It appears that the folks at KWA and PTS (Professional Training Systems), have been in cahoots with each other and have conspired to release some pretty sweet new KWA-based rifles clothed in brand new licensed body parts.
