Out of curiosity, will there be an 'Asian' AKG and a US legal AKG, similar to how there is a US and Asian LM4?

I'm sure there is (or there will be) some version of the AKG out there in the Asian markets, but just to clarify, the US AKG has been ATF approved, just like the US version of the LM4 is ATF approved to have the attribute of not being able to have it be converted into a real firearm. So the US AKG is ATF approved, and also has the most updated design.

Outlaw is correct. Just like the LM4, the AKG has already been submitted and approved by ATF.

However, I do not know myself what the differences between the AKG US and Asia version will be. The differences I could assume is not going to be as blatant as the LM4 US version vs. the LM4 Asia version, since the AKG did not go through many revisions like the LM4 did.

One thing that stands true is what is covered under warranty, which is KWA approved products, that are imported in by KWA, and distributed through their approved dealers.

Im really wondering if there's a difference aside from product support.
LM4 difference was due to asian version release 2 years before the US one.
In AKG cases, Asian version is not out yet.

The LM4 is very different than the asian version initially released two years ago. We won't know the differences with the AKG until an non US user acquires both, and compares.
