No official word on the long mags yet.  One of us (me, Niko, or xKingSizex) will keep the Forum posted when more is known.
It has been over 90 days now with no word or hope in sight for 49 round mags.   Why are these on such a low manufacturing priority???   Can you not just official say this will never happen?

A shipment of long mags came in on early June.  They all sold out within days at every reseller.  More will come in but there are new products that are taking priority at the moment so please be patient.

Hmmm. The people I speak with at KWA tell me that there will be more mags.  I mean I literally received a text to confirm it when I saw this thread...

Does KWA only have one machine to make all their products ;)


Later post reply:


I thought that KWA held the copy right to the mag? Anyways at the end of the day KWA could just take the KRISS logo off the bottom.

But yeah I need some mags as well.

I just sold my like-new Kriss with two magazines (yesterday).  Got more offers for the magazines than for the gun so the magazine shortage must be real!  I should have sold it with one magazine and got a premium price for the second.  ;)

Just checked ebay (UK).. Mags have gone up to £75 ($115)..

Thats really taking the piss out of the hobby and anybody that owns a Vector.

KWA can you please make more - there is obviously a need for them.

Although price gouging by those that are out to make a "quick" buck doesn't surprise me I was not aware that they started doing that with the KRISS long mags. I hope this doesn't catch on in the US. KWA discourages this type of behavior by resellers and most of KWA authorized dealers are cooperative, however, we can not police every vendor around the country.
There will be future shipments of KRISS long mags and KWA is working hard on trying to get more mags out for those that are in desperate need.  I can not give you a date on the mags but when KWA receives them it will be announced so please keep an eye out and follow KWA on facebook and on this forums.

Also be aware that these sell FAST so when you see them available try to jump on it ASAP.  The last shipment of long mags sold out in a couple of days.
