Shot Show 2012, News From ICS, KWA, ASG

Postby Matt » Tue Jan 17, 2012 1:43 pm

Hey guys, we've got new videos up with ICS and ASG. ICS is working on a new prototype M1 Garand, all real wood, electric, 8mm. It looks cool but it's a rough prototype for now, probably not out for 6 months to a year. ASG is a new player in distributing in the US. They've got license rights with CZ, the makers of the Scorpion. They're working on a new CZ Scorpion EVO 3 A1, so far they've got a working prototype they manufactured themselves in Europe. I know that a lot of you are into exotic replicas we don't see too often on the field, this is one of those. Take a look at our videos for the full info.





We also stopped by KWA and plan to shoot video later today, but we had our first change to handle the KRISS VECTOR, very impressive! We've got pictures posted to AP's facebook. Here's a couple to wet your appetite, head over to facebook to see today's pics and "like" AP to follow our updates.

If you do see the VFC 417s and wanted to ask what gearbox and hopup they use that'd be awesome.

There's no VFC booth unfortunately, only some other distributors who are distributing VFC products. We'll keep our eyes peeled.

If there's a G&G booth, you should definitely go there.

Also, I am really happy for the Garand, although being in 8mm is kind of bad news.

With 8 round magazines, I doubt you're going to be putting a lot of fire down range, so you shouldn't be going through too much ammo.

Real Sword did not have a booth this year, so no news there.
