Hey guys,
Whats everyone think the likely hood is that we'll see trademarked aftermarket receivers? With as awesome as the LM4 is, I can't wait to get a Colt stamped receiver. Perhaps those with other GBBr's can chime in and check the compatibility between other manufacturers receivers and the KWAs.

Thanks,
David

I'd love to have a Colt lower and a VLTOR upper, though I highly doubt I'll ever see one for our guns.

Nope..current aftermarket bodies for g&p/wa won't fit..and I wasn't down to modify the bodies to try to make it fit. I'm really hoping a company out their makes a nice trademarked body..I would hella buy one..even if I could get a taiwan ksc upper/lower id rock that.

The best bet we have is cross our finger and hope KWA pull off a HK416, Considering KWA has been doing so many H&K's lineup I don't see how their KWA 416 would be rejected.As for Colt trademark, it is licensed through Cyber gun much like FN (M16A4's manufacture) KWAUSA does not have any project together to date, therefore I would not hold my breath on it.
In terms of aftermarket, I suspect Guarder will make it as they had prototype w/ o anodized shown. Not sure if anyone else will be joining the KSC/KWA boat (guarder seem to be the primary aftermarket provider for KSC/KWA M4 system.
If anyone makes aftermarket receiver, I sure hope they fix that receiver spec. I don't know about you guys but I can feel a distinct difference in shouldering on complete collapsed position between KWA LM4, and Systema PTW/AR-15. If you guys don't know, the receiver is 1/4" shorter, length reduction are at he grip area. Prime overcame WA's shortening with ease (bolt carrier require spacer, everything else is the same)
