Kriss pulls license agreement from KWA - Vector discontinued

Hey all,

Haven't seen this talked about here on AO, but Kriss Arms has suddenly pulled the license agreement from KWA, forcing them to discontinue production of the popular and brand new Kriss Vector. There are Vectors still out in the wide, but not many. Grab one while you can still find one if you're dying to get it ASAP. I talked with KWA yesterday and they have stopped production, effective April 18, 2013.

The official press release from Kriss is here:
http://www.kriss-arms.com/latest-new...nsing-with-kwa

Sucks, but that's the way things go sometimes.

I've been surfing KWA's forums, and they are discontinuing the firearm itself, but will still provide service/magazines.

From what I understand, Kriss entered into the license deal in order to have KWA design the airsoft Kriss. Then apparently Kriss was able to aquire several of KWA's top design engineers. KWA got pissed off about it and Kriss pulled out. End of marriage.

Not sure if this is 100% true or 100% false or somewhere in between. My KWA reps are keeping silent as they are not allowed to talk about it, but several fairly reliable sources I have are all saying the similar things. Who knows.

Sniped you Brad. However, great information many people couldn't have gotten otherwise you being in the actual airsoft business. I am friends with Allen (Formally KWA) on Facebook and he changed his name from KWA Allen to Allen Kriss. He has continuously made statuses about how KWA is causing more drama, and how he is going to sell the KWA polos and jackets he owns.

This all seems crazy immature in my opinion.

Dinosaurs, Dodo, KWA?

Why is it that recently companies have been pulling support from KWA?
KRISS Arms Terminates Licensing with KWA: http://www.airsoft2day.com/news/1143...-with-kwa.html
KWA no longer Exclusive FLASHBANG Distributor: http://www.airsoft2day.com/news/1147...stributor.html
Also KWA's and H&K/Umarex's licensing agreement expired and wasn't renewed. Is KWA going the way of the Dodo?
