no, so this means no more mk23 mags either? I got the mk23 awhile back and never got around to buying mags. Are you guys ever going to start making these gun and mags again?

Who said that there were no more HK23 mags?  KWA will continue to make the HK line for Umarex.  This includes mags.  HK models are distributed through Umarex exclusively moving forward.  Now, if Umarex decides they don't want KWA to make a particular model that's a different story and needs to be taken up with....Umarex.

Like I wrote, that's up to Umarex.  In the mean time why not buy some mags?  See here: http://www.amazon.co...s=mk23 magazine

Umarex is not going to carry on with the Mk23. I also think that they're dropping the USP Tac, USPC Tac, and the USP Match. Im not 100% sure on those USPs, but I know that the Mk23 is done from a Umarex employee. Don't know about mags though, this is my favorite performing pistol and I just haven't got the time or money to get mags now. Very bummed

I can't comment on what Umarex will and won't continue to sell.  However, here is what RADIX posted in this thread on January 18.  Note his comment regarding magazines:
"We apologize if it seemed that way, but It was beyond our control.  We negotiated with the best intents but in the end Umarex holds the worldwide HK license and can do whatever they please.  For those with KWA HK products, rest assure that spare magazines will be available through Umarex."

I was under the impression his statement was directed at the MP7.  The USP, compact, and MP7 are the only guns on their website.  So, I'm guessing those are the only three magazines/guns being made.  My question is why has there STILL been no announcement or anything, and why was there none in the first place?

So what is the actual deal with mags?
Judging by the vid vfc posted umarex is licensing their new mp7, they even go so far to trash talk the non1:1 scale of the kwa

You would need to ask Umarex and VFC.

Yea...unfortunately, I don't know if the KWA version is 1:1, but there is also a third company that produces a GBB "MP7", so the video wasn't necessarily accurate, when the guy said "the only other MP7"....

Edit: Going by semantics, the third company would be the only other GBB on the market as KWA no longer has an MP7 on the market (it's now a Umarex product)...

I always thought the KWA one is 1:1 scale?  Why is it not?  Is it a little wide?  I saw a real one in a gun shop (restricted to semi obviously) and when I went home I couldn't find a difference looking at some pictures I took of the real one.

Buy it here: http://www.airsoftgi...oducts_id=10712
The one with 2 mags is cheaper then the one with one mag.

KWA MP7 will still be manufactured, but will be renamed to the Umarex MP7 GBB, am I correct? VFC seems to have a prototype MP7 GBB, however if its official release is soon, will it replace the KWA MP7? I would like to purchase the KWA MP7, but confused if its discontinued or manufactured with a new name!

Size comparison with the KWA MP7 vs RS:

This is a huge issue! My whole rig revolves around KWA HK gear! I run the MP7 and the HK45 so much for buying an LM4 because all that money now has to go towards new magazines :(

Mags will still be produced. So will the MP7, HK45, and a couple USPs. They will just be called Umarex instead of KWA. Same exact product and producer, different name. However, the Mk23 and a couple others will be cut, I still don't have an answer on mags for the cut guns.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Are you kidding me, the MP7 or MP9 was on my dream list. Wait, the MP9, was it actually officially licensed or not? Or does that matter. I really wanted a GBB smg, was planning on getting one next fall when I had got my AEG project over with.
This really sucks.

Seriously, if anyone has any info on the specifics if they will sorta slide by and not make it officially licensed or trades on it PLEASE post.
