I got the opportunity to not only play Airsoft with Jonathan Higgs from Airsoftology.com and Jet Del Castillo, Managing Director of Airsoft Operations for Giant Airsoft Parks in Southern California, but I got to sit down with the two of them afterwards for a little after-action report and a discussion of exciting things to come in the near future.  Jonathan & I also compare beards.

Accessorizing the KWA LM4 Gas Blowback Rifle

Accessorizing the KWA LM4 PTR (Gas Blowback Rifle)

Check out a bunch of KWA LM4 photos after the jump...

Watch in today's airsoft action video as I, along with Brian Holt from Echo1 USA and the rest of the Black Polo Operators destroy a bunch of young kids and otherwise noobz during Game 2 on Code Red Airsoft Park's District 9 field.

Brian Holt literally fires his Echo1 PKM from the hip, while I figuratively fire my KWA LM4 GBBR from the heart.  Hilarity ensues.

If this isn't a sign that Airsoft is going to continue to grow in the future, then I don't know what is.

Well, today turned out to be a real treat.  I called up one of my besties, Trent F. Warren, and we went to check out Operation: Black Shield at SC Village.  I was particularly interested to see the new KWA FMT truck & trailer that I had seen the day before on their Facebook page.  "FMT" stands for Field Marketing Team, according to KWA.  Little did I know that their trailer was more than just a trailer.  It is a mobile showroom for all their guns, including ALL their known prototypes.  This thing was super fresh, super clean like Outkast. Heck, it even has air conditioning in it.  I wouldn't be surprised if they had a secret martini bar hidden away in there that flips out from behind a wall at the touch of a button.

While the big show was obviously the trailer, there was quite a lot going for their new Ford F250 Monster truck. Customized a la KWA.

Check out some of the news as reported by the very noble, Jonathan Higgs, from Airsoftology.

Perhaps the biggest news in that mix is the release of the gas blowback KWA LM4 PTR, which is available at Pyramyd Air.  I was able to do a little testing & evaluation (T&E) on it last week while the MilSim Junkie and his posse were in town, along with G. Wong (Spartan117GW) and let me tell you, I was thoroughly impressed.  Especially after I've been using my brother-in-law's G&P WOC GBBR for a little bit.  The KWA LM4 was absolutely phenomenal right out of the box.  The "mirrion dorrar" question is how well the internals of the LM4 are going to hold up and/or how easy it is to be repaired if it does break down.  I'll have more follow-up on the LM4 coming soon.

My shoulder is actually improving quite a bit each day (I dislocated it at SC Viper, for those that didn't already know).

Check out some of the footage that the MilSim Junkie got while he was in town.  My cameo doesn't appear towards the end.  All the cool people got mentioned first.

I know that I've reported in the past on the KWA LM4 Gas Blowback Rifle (GBBR) & Electric Recoil Gun (ERG), but since then, KWA has decided to not only douse each model with a bunch of Magpul PTS furniture, but they're also going to be offering the ERG platform in three different lengths:

The SPR length, for the designated marksmen out there.

The Scout, for a versatile, indoor/outdoor option

The CQB, for...well...CQB.

I forgot to ask whether the gas blowback models will also come in these lengths or if it will simply come in the standard 14.5" barrel length.  Oh well.  Now I have a reason to go back!  Haha.

Check out the video wherein I interview Mike from KWA about the new guns.

So here's the video footage from my visit to KWA last week. Mike Hou takes us through the many features of their newest prototypes for the KWA HK45 gas blowback pistol, RM4A1 Electric Recoil Gun (ERG) and also gives us a quick update on their LM4 Magpul edition. Oh yea, that sexy lil' KWA ATP makes a cameo in there as well.


Dang, it feels good to be a gangster.
