Hello,

Will KWA be making the short style magazines for these?  I suspect that will make a world of difference to me in the ability to make it smaller and lighter...

If you haven't seen the GI video of Tim firing these things on full auto, go watch it.

That should answer your question.

While it does burn through the magazine quickly, I too would greatly like to have the option to purchase a short magazine. I plan on using mine as a backup to a bolt action replica, and having a shorter magazine in the KMP9R would help make it even more compact so it is out of my way, and to a lesser extent reduce the 'flop' effect. For myself, I would carry a few extra long magazines in a pouch out of the way for later in case 'stuff' gets crazy. :o

I'm fully aware of its rate of fire.  It does come with a semi-auto option though :-P and 30 rounds is more than enough for me. Fully auto is an emergency luxary even with the long mags.

I would be happy buying any extra magazines at this point.  I don't understand what the holdup is on extra mags.

That is exactly how I have my MP7 setup. Short mag in gun whe the gun is holstered and 3 long mags in my vest. It works great. I agree,short mags should be available, it is always good to have one or two short mags handy for any SMG.
