    News Forum Info and Suggestion Box

    Post  Admin on 13.07.09 14:27

    SO, this is the new addition to MAA that I was telling some of you about in the chatbox. The news section will be filled with new product releases, announcements, and any airsoft news. Austin (Spectre) will be heading it up for now, and I'll be guiding this as well. After a week or so, when we get all of the kinks worked out, we'll open up applications for another reporter to help Austin with this. You'll find that only myself and members of the "Reporters" group can post new topics in here, but everyone can reply to topics and vote in the polls. Enjoy!


    Also, does anyone have any suggestions for the news section? Post them in here. I'll keep this thread up for a week or so, and then we'll look at what we want to change.

    LAS VEGAS, NV: 19 January 2012

    Thumpy’s 3D House of Airsoft has learned that SHOT Show officials are closing down the JAG Precision/ECHO 1 USA booth on the show floor, and are escorting company personnel from the site of the 2012 show over a temporary restraining order from CYBERGUN S.A. and FN Herstal.

    The shutdown is allegedly resulting from not one but TWO lawsuits filed against JAG, first in Texas on January 10, and the second filed here in Nevada on the opening day of SHOT Show, January 17. Online records from those filings allege Patent Infringment by the popular California-based airsoft business from the largest holder of airsoft licensing agreements in the world.

    SHOT Show media representatives are working on a statement, but did confirm that the vendor was being closed down after General Counsel for the NSSF, presenters of the SHOT Show, were made aware of a temporary restraining order from CYBERGUN representatives on Friday morning.

    At midday, the JAG Precision and ECHO 1 USA booth was screened off by curtains, as company personnel including wildly-popular American YouTuber Brian Holt, were tearing down their displays. Security personnel would not allow accredited media representatives to ask questions of JAG officials inside the display, and referred all questions to the SHOT Show media office, where we have place a query for an official response from the NSSF General Counsel’s office.

    raven concealment systems is upset with lying coming from the air soft community. Their behavior is way more professional than what 215 gear has said about airsoft

    thrush ..probably external appearance of their weapons that look like anything that FN has patented or that cybergun has licensed ...cybergun has spent a good bit of money buying appearance rights from all sorts of gun manufacturers over that past few years in an effort to shut any other companies out of the US airsoft market by hitting other manufacturers with lawsuits like this.the goal is that only cybergun products,as "officially licensed " products,will be for sale here...see how that works?

    raven?...totally agree with them..it's why i don't use modern gear...

    215...."fa**ot wannabes"? really?.....kinda like a guy that has his company registered under his wife's name to get preferential government consideration as a female/minority owned business?since he obviously doesn't want any airsoft bis then he shouldn't have any...seems the right thing to do given his public statements...

    Colt/Armalite is a name KWA does not put on there products. Anyone can make a M4 looking product and that's the reason you have a 100+ companies that make real M4/AR guns. Same goes for the 1911. That's the reason you have companies like Springfield, Kimber, Sig Sauer and a bizzion others that make 1911's. G&G on the other hand has and does have issues with licensing like on there MP5's and UMP's. When it comes down on them from Umarex it's going to serve them right also. Because Umarex gave them the option to license the HK guns but G&G wouldn't cut them a deal on their guns, so Umarex told them kick rocks!
