Is there any information regarding when retailers (Evike, AirsoftGI) will receive their orders for the MP7. Have the shipments been sent out to the retailers yet? Is there something holding up the process of getting them to the retailers?

If a KWA employee could respond I would greatly appreciate it. I placed a pre-order for one and just want to get an idea of when I should start expecting it.

According to ASGI the MP7 was in stock last night... but I suppose they pushed it back because of that nasty Typhoon they had over there a couple of weeks ago, that pushed back everything by a week. New date is next Friday 9/4/09

now does that actually mean they'll have some in their warehouse when it says in stock.. who knows? That's the only thing I hate about ASGI, sometimes what it says on the website about being in stock isn't always true.

Well..  it's not ASGI fault.  Typhoon delay is act of nature and that is un-expected.

Allizard,

Could you please let us know when KWA USA receives them and when they have been shipped out to the retailers? Any information you may have on when the customers who have pre-ordered them can expect to receive them would be greatly appreciated.

As all of us are dedicated KWA product owners, I think we deserve to hear some real information regarding when the MP7 will be released directly from KWA. The original release date was last month and we have not been given any real updated release date info. Many of us have pre-ordered the MP7 and now our money is tied up with no end in sight. I have heard everything from a Typhoon caused the delay, to U.S. Customs is holding them for inspection.

The last thing I heard is that the MP7's have already arrived at KWA USA but that they will not be shipped out till next month.

KWA: Please dont leave us hanging. We need and deserve some real release date information directly from you. If you wont release the information on your forums will you atleast do a press release or post something on your homepage?

They are pending for US Customer inspection.  Remember the MP7 have H&K trades; they are going to make sure it's legal to import.

I've gotten word from the retailer I preordered from, that the MP7's have cleared US customs. Hopefully it arrives soon, and best of luck to all the others who have preordered.

I was wondering if you could tell us which retailer you spoke to that said they had cleared Customs. I pre-ordered mine from Evike so I hope it was them that you spoke with. LOL.

Then again, I wont really trust any info that doesnt come from KWA directly.

Allizard, does KWA have any updates on what the status is? Are they still in Customs? Or have they indeed been cleared and are on their way to KWA?

K thanks Spiggy. And if you have any info on when KWA will receive its shipment of MP7's please dont hold back. Tell us what you know if you can. Thanks. By the way, nice tactical stance in the MP7 Teaser vid.

I ordered from a local, up and coming retailer that sponsors games in NJ. I'm not sure what information they were allowed to give me, so I'd rather not say who the retailer is in public(PM sent). But it wasn't Evike. But I am not holding my breath. I wont believe my weapon is coming until I get tracking info (which I haven't).

I'd love to know which retailer in NJ it is.  I live in NJ.  If they are up and coming I would like to check them out.  Please send me an IM.

Thanks,

At the moment MP7 is still at US custom.  They are scrutinizing all imported airsoft products from ALL manufacturers.  We are not the only one that's affected.  Currently they only released the SR series.  

Be patient, that's all I can say.

Any update on a release date? Are they still in Customs?

Can KWA give us an idea of what is being done to resolve this matter with Customs?

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks

It is still in customs being examined by "different" federal agencies.  Last we heard was the guns may be too realistic.  At the moment there's really nothing anyone can do except to wait until they are satisfied.
