Guys, there is WAY MORE behind the KRISS vs. KWA situation than even those of us in the MilSim media world know for sure. Both sides have been very, very quiet on this…and today’s announcement sheds the first official light on the issues since SHOT Show and IWA in Germany.

We WILL pass along what information we get from ON-THE-RECORD sources, but what we do know and CAN say is that most of the social media speculation is pointing fingers…with virtually NO SUBSTANTIATED FACTS to back up comments. Please tread carefully. That’s all we have so far….

NEW KRISS Details from KWA and EVIKE’s Matt

OK, he might be getting himself out of the doghouse with KWA and the rest of us….as EVIKE TV’s host MATT gets some direct answers from KWA uber-tech MIKE on the KWA HK45…but the REAL SCOOP is at the end, when KWA lets some of the details out of the bag on the long-awaited KRISS Vector project:

SO, SHOT Show again promises to be big for KWA…and a prototype that can be handled, but not fired.  Hmmm…wish the KWA’s would have invested in a shoot-room, a-la CyberG/Palco….you CAN get a spot to do this, but not where KWA’s PRO TRAINING PRODUCTS booth is located…that’s a shame, SHOT Show!!!….Maybe SHOT needs to take some lessons from North Carolina’s own North Atlantic Airsoft Expo!!!!

Heres’ the link to Thumpy’s prior KRISS COVERAGE from SHOT Show 2011:

THUMPY SHOT SHOW Update #6-KWA Building a Sphinx!

It seems somewhat appropriate that KWA USA announces a NEW SPHINX Pistol, with FULL-TRADEMARKS, in a city known for “Caesar’s” and a Huge Pyramid!

And, here is your first look!

Las Vegas, NV and City of Industry, CA – January 18th, 2010 – KWA and Sphinx Arms, Swiss pistol manufacturer, have announced a licensing agreement that will make KWA the worldwide exclusive licensee of Sphinx airsoft replicas. With the patented NS2 technology, KWA will design and manufacture GBB pistols based on Sphinx designs.

Founded in 1876, Sphinx has a world-wide reputation as the benchmark for precision pistols. Manufactured and assembled in Matten/Interlaken, Switzerland, Sphinx products are used by military and law enforcement units in Switzerland and abroad. In the commercial market, Sphinx pistols are valued by competitive shooters.

KWA leads the industry with innovative and high performing airsoft products by combining precision engineering and a passion to outperform. With unparalleled customer and warranty service, KWA strives to ensure that all of its products are of the highest quality and its customers are properly cared for. The introduction of the 2GX AEG (Airsoft Electric Gun) gearbox and the NS2 GBB system has set a new standard in airsoft technology.
