COUNTERFEIT PRODUCT ALERT

City of Industry, CA September 22, 2009 Lately we have discovered counterfeit products bearing the KWA registered mark and also that of our OEM partner. These counterfeits are being sold to customers as genuine articles at full retail prices. Products counterfeited range from current productions to models no longer deemed legal to import by KWA USA.

The counterfeit airsoft products being sold do not compare in build quality or performance capability to any authentic KWA model. Please note that KWA USA is not responsible, will not be liable for any damage or loss resulting from the use of counterfeit products and will not provide warranty service or any technical support of counterfeit products.

Genuine KWA products should be purchased from KWA USA authorized dealers and distributors. For a complete list of authorized resellers, please visit our web site at www.kwausa.com and click on the "Where to Buy" section.

We would also like to ask for your help in identifying any retailers or distributors selling counterfeit products. If you have any information regarding counterfeit products, or suspect you may have one, please call us at 1(626)581-1777 or email us at support@kwausa.com.

Thank you for your continuous support of KWA products.
