“It seems the latest crackdown on airsoft manufacturers has possibly closed the door on the clones. The only info availible at the moment is that the boss of A&K has been imprisioned and may face the death penalty, Cyma/Boyi and DE are being watched, AGM have shut down indefinatly and JG never restarted after the last crackdown.”
“We have heard, whilst in China, that the head of AGM has been sentenced to 10 years (15 according to a different source) for being in possession of 30,00 replica firearms. Supposedly the heads/owners of other factories are in hiding.
What we know for sure is that all the factories are shut and that no-one can give us a restart date. Don’t expect anything from AGM for a very long time, the others? We simply don’t know.
As ever, the rumour mill will go into overdrive, but in a year where the ACM factories have been raided several times, this would appear to be the the most concerted & draconian action take to date.”
Thought I’d best keep y’all informed. there is a thread on ASCUK and no doubt other Forums too, I guess as Frenchie says we’ll have to wait and see what the full impact will be.
