I bought my KWA MP7A1 last summer just for fun.  Turns out it's not (technically) a KWA, but a Umarex.  I ordered a KWA and got the Umarex but we all know who made it.

The MP7A1 is still made and sold.  Just can't buy it in a KWA box or with a KWA manual.

Did you buy it from evike by any chance? I bought the 2 mag deal from them and I think it's a kwa but I'm not sure..

Yep, the Evike "two magazine deal."  It's the KWA (made) gun for sure, even says "made by KWA" on the box (but not on the gun).

Has the three color HK owners manual, a one (1) year warranty (not 45 day), and the serial number looks like this.  Does your serial number look like mine?

Yes it does. So it doesn't have the ns2 or what? Did we get ripped off? And can I send it in to kwa to get repaired?( payed of course)

Yours has the Force Velocity engine (the big brother version of the NS2 found in the KMP7 and LM4).  It is made by KWA for Umarex and warranted and repaired by Umarex so there is no sending it to KWA.  That said, you DID NOT get ripped off.

So it's essentially the same thing right? Same gas efficiency, accuracy, fps, stuff like that correct?
And I purchased the low power bolt from evike with some mags about 2 weeks ago....the bolt will fit correctly into the gun right?( sorry for so many questions this is news to me lol)

Yes.  Same gun.  Different marketing channels.  (Unlike the stuff you buy at WalMart.)

I am truley sad. I was looking into getting an MP7 but without mags, it wouldn't be as useful on the field.

Heheh, suckas! I got mine last spring, finished up my mag buying last fall :D Collectors item b@#$%es!

But seriously, that blows. Your[KWA's] H&K lineup will be missed by many, however I am confident you will prevail considering how nice all of the other products are too. I'm most excited for the PTS Masada with the KWA GBBR system... delicious.

Yep, the MP7A1 was formerly available from two retail channels.  KWA and Umarex.  Now only available thru one retail channel:  Umarex.  Manufactured by KWA like it always was. Still KWA engineering and quality.

These have always been the same gun in different boxes and owners manuals.  Same gun with different warranties.  KWA warranty was 45 days; Umarex warranty was and still is one year -- 365 days.

I'm not sure why KWA chose to announce it was discontinued.  They still make a profit for every gun sold in the Umarex box.  Maybe KWA-USA doesn't make a dime on them any more, but corporate still does.

Chuck,

Just so you know.  There is a difference between no longer distributing product and no longer manufacturing product.  And as stated before, we will no longer be distributing HK products since our distribution contract with them has expired.

The distribution agreement between KWA and Umarex expired and will not be extended.  All KWA HK products including magazines will only be distributed by Umarex. -- Radix
