Why the delay on the M16BR, M4, and M4 Commando?

Tentatively, the 2009 version of KM16BR, KM4A1, KM4CQB, and KM4S will not be available until Sept.  The upcoming June release are for the SR-5, SR-10, SR-12 and KM4 RIS rifles.

About the release of SR series, will it be in America only or through-out the world?  :unsure:

nope. it does not have 2009 internal.  At least not all of them.  You'll have the latest piston and gears set. v1.75 gearbox shell.

I purchased the KM4A1 on the last day of March.  Why did mine come with v1.5 gearbox?  I would also assume I do NOT have the latest piston?  KWA was nice enough to put in a new gear set which was awesome of them.  But when I purchased from ASGI, why did I not receive the latest version of the gun??? :angry:

I believe you did receive the latest version at the time of your purchase.  All the guns sold in 2009 has the new reinforced polymer piston.  Your gun has almost all the new updated parts except for the 2GX shell which no one outside of KWA has. ;)

What is the difference between the SR5 and the SR10, and SR12 besides barrel length, spring, and intended purpose? Is the only difference the barrel length, and spring strength? Do they have the same GB and gears? Basically...what i want to know...is...can i buy the SR5, and throw in the SR12/m130/m140 spring for woodlands battles, with out any negative effects on the GB and gears that wouldnt already be in the SR12? (Obviously wouldnt use it for CQB at that point). I do understand that heavier springs are more pressure on the GB.

Basically...as far as wear and tear...would the SR5 with the SR12 spring be any different than the wear and tear on the SR12 with the SR12 spring?

There is no difference in the spring of the SR5, and the SR10, the only thing that is different is the cylinder, as far as the SR12 it uses a different 130"equivalent" spring. The KWA gearbox can handle a M150. The SR12 will also have a slower RoF which means it won't wear the gears as fast.

Radix, I know I asked earlier, but can I get a confirmation that the RIS on the KM-4 RIS is 2 piece?

The RIS is two piece.  You can leave the top on and installed barrel mount M203.

Will you guys really be releasing the price of the 2009 line in a day? (as of April 30th)
If so, I am very anxious to hear the prices so I can start saving now. Haha

I don't believe we've said anything about pricing. :unsure:  We usually do not release pricing information until products are ready to be shipped.  This is done to anticipate last minute spec changes.  If you haven't noticed, we have a habit of making changes. ;)

Haha. I didnt think so. But I saw someone saying something about it on these forums, and I was just checking to make sure if the information was valid or not.

Thanks.

Correct me if I'm wrong but wouldn't it be impossible to pre-order when there is no pricing info released to the public?!!
