Hey I was thinking about getting the KM4-A1 now but was just wondering if there is a new version of this gun slated for release anytime soon, if so I'd like to wait for the new version (hopefully with an improved trigger block), if not then I'll just get one now cause they're sickkk.

i havnt had any trouble with my 2 kwa's. but i'm not hard on the trigger. i shoot it like my real steal weapons.
but when i do go into the gearbox i'll clean and sand around the base of the trigger block and build it up a little with jb weld just to make it stronger.

I have not encountered any problems with my trigger block either, IMO we should be able to give our gearbox shell with the "bad" trigger block back with some $$$ to KWA and get the revised gearbox, is this idea feasible Radix?

The failure rate on the trigger post is grossly exaggerated, only less than 1% has been reported. However, we will be making modifications to the tooling to improve the structure integrity of the post.  There are several methods being reviewed and one of them is what "bigjohn" suggested: strengthening the base of the post. :)

Tigger block is being revised at the moment.  It takes time to retool and make the mold.... It will get here, don't worry.

Seems like you guys have your G36c down. There are no post (maybe one) on the G36c thread that is about a issue with their gun, only "why isnt it Lipo ready like the M4" or "whats the difference between the M4 and G36c".

Oh yeah... I really like the G36c, it's always been problem free.

Never had the g36. I like the m4 more than the g36, but that is a personal opinion. :)
