WOW do you guys not understand what I said???
First off I did NOT start the issue about an upgraded gun compared to an stock gun. The person from KWA said that. I repeat, they said the following and I quote, "With that said, our guns will perform much better out of the box than an "upgraded" Hi Capa pistol."
All I said is that is a pretty BIG statment to make. While I realize that this is their site and need their cheerleaders we need to keep things in prospective. To make that kind of statment was off base.
I NEVER said anything about KWA needing a race gun to stay in business. I NEVER even hinted at that. I will repeat and quote what the person from KWA said "We are not trying to "compete" with TM guns, we are just trying to make the best gun out there possible.
I then said, To say your are not trying to "compete" would be crazy. That is part of business and you had better be looking at "competing" if you want to stay in business..
This was a GENERAL comment directed at general business practices and not if they do a race gun or not. My point to the comment was is that every company is in the market to compete, keep up with the competition, know what the competition is doing, etc. If you have companies making like products then you are competing for the same market share and revenue.
I hope this clears things up with some folks. PLEASE ready closely at comments and the entire thread before making assumptions or remarks that are not accurate. "Sigh..."
I will also repeat again that I think KWA is one of the best companies going in airsoft. I love that they make solid products, have a US based division of operation, great warranty, great customer support, inovative products, etc. I could go on and on so dont get any ideas I am here to bash KWA. I simply asked a question about them offering a good alternative in the competition shooting market. I will also repeat again that if anyone can do this and be sucessful I know KWA can....
