On Saturday, KWA attended the ASGI Annual Summer Sale, displaying the same upcoming line up shown at Lion Claws XI and Shot Show 2012. Check ‘KWA @ Operation Lion Claws XI’ to see the prototypes. The separate booth behind the main KWA booth had a KWA shooting range to test out the M4 ERG as well as the recently released CQR MOD 2.
Another two items captured my attention while at the booth. The first was KWA Marketing Manager’s custom LM4. Allen’s custom LM4 shows the LM4’s direct compatibility with the Madbull NOVESKE 10″ Free Float Rail, King Arms Mil-spec Clubfoot Stock, Real Knight’s Armament Company Trigger Guard, Real Tango Down AR BG-16 Pistol Grip, and Vortex SPARC Red Dot Sight. This means that the KWA LM4’s front receiver threads are for AEG Rails, while the rest of the KWA LM4 is Mil-spec including the buffer tube. To add on that even though the receiver threads are for AEG rails, the LM4 with its delta ring are compatible with real AR Hand Guards like the Magpul MOE Hand Guards.
The second item that captured my attention was the brown and orange ‘KWA LM4 Magpul PTS Edition’ box that hanged in the back of the booth, seemingly foreshadowing its upcoming release. When asking KWA Allen about the KWA LM4 Magul PTS Edition’s release, Allen refusing to give an exact date, replied “real soon” with a smirk on his face. From past experience and observations with KWA releases and KWA Allen dropping little clues like with the LM4 Magpul PTS Edition box hanging in the background, I translate ‘real soon’ to be by this month or first half of next month for the LM4 Magpul PTS Edition’s release.
