OK, its officially out, so we can bring it DIRECT TO YOU!
An official announcment from Magpul PTS and KWA….they will be teaming up to build a COMPLETE Magpul Folding Pistol Gun (FPG)…based around the KWA M and G Series 18 replica pistols, with some new improvements for performance!
Text of the official announcement below:
Magpul PTS is very excited to announce a joint venture with KWA to manufacture a COMPLETE VERSION of the Magpul PTS Folding Pistol Gun (FPG).
KWA is a respected leader in Airsoft manufacturing which specializes in GBB technology. With innovative designs like the MP7A1 and soon to be released KMP9 (a modern rendition of the TMP), KWA is known for reliability and performance.
The Magpul PTS FPG kit recently made available on the market was developed as a licensed replica of the Magpul Industries FPG and was designed around the KWA/KSC Gas Blowback system. The original intent was to manufacture a conversion kit for the many KWA M series and KSC G series guns that the FPG was developed around and which many consumers’ had in hand already. It quickly became obvious that the public interest for the FPG was greater than initially expected, and there was high demand for a completed version of the Magpul PTS FPG. A joint venture between Magpul PTS and KWA was an obvious choice, and that is now a reality.
KWA will be producing the necessary internals of the GBB system, nearly identical to the previous GBB design but with a few modifications and performance upgrades per Magpul PTS’ request.
Magpul PTS is confident that the products resulting from this joint venture will be of the highest quality and the collaboration will pave the way for future projects. The projected MSRP and release dates will be announced soon. The completed gun will ship with a high capacity magazine.
Thumpy’s Inside Track:
The most exciting and INNOVATIVE part of the announcement was that the deal will “pave the way for future projects.” Obviously internal discussions between the two companies…INNOVATORS in their own respective ways; KWA as the current leader in AEG and GBB technologies, and MagpulPTS for not only their groundbreaking designs, but also for embracing the Airsoft industry as well as their Real-Steel ventures…can only mean GREAT THINGS for the future of both companies, for AIRSOFERS, and for the WORLD!
