So they have the Race gun 1911 from last year as well as the Luger and Mauser broom handle, all in blowback and some are supposed to be field stripped like the firearm.
This year they seem to have added a Beretta 92 (not the same as the Taurus/GSG 92 some of us have), a Glock, a new line of revolvers and a Smith & Wesson M&P ALL featuring blowback action!

I agree that it deserves its own post! KWC is now my favorite manufacturer/supplier of extremely realistic replica pistols. Looks like they read our minds, Doc, eh?

I already have their airsoft replicas of the Desert Eagle/KCB-51ACIH), the SW40F/KCB-12AHN, and the Tanfoglio Limited/KCB-89AHN and, of course, the older airgun replicas like the GSG92/KMB-15AHN, the Tanfoglio Witness/KMB-76AHN and the Sig Sauer P226/KMB-74AHN.
The Desert Eagle is a fantastic semi-auto pistol. It has ABS plastic frame and everything else is metal (aluminum alloy). It shoots on average at 400fps (with 0.2 gram plastic BB), has a great accuracy at 25 feet and very strong blowback which feels even stronger than that for a .22cal pistol. Actually, during a first shooting session I placed my left hand thumb in a wrong place on the frame and the slide ripped it open and cut a piece of my thumb nail!
The SW40F is not bad but not so great as the Eagle. Its frame is made from ABS and the slide is metal. Its accuracy is worse than that for the Eagle but it shoots on average close to 380fps. On the top of it, after about 200 shots the metal slide developed a hairline crack. So far, the crack is not propagating but we will see.
The Tanfoglio Limited happens to be a piece of crap. After 100 shots now the slide gets stuck in the rear position after each shot and doesn’t spring forward. Now I have a nice paperweight.

The final message is that not everything what looks nice is going to be a really satysfying product. However, so far, the KWC products overall seem to be pretty solid.

Yeah I was wondering if I should make a separate post KWC catalog :D When I found it yesterday I got really excited lol.

I love replicas of older pistols and KWC seems to as well. Now I only hope I will be able to get them in Canada someday.

You're not alone! It's like we're kids looking at the Sears catalog before Christmas again LOL.

I'll probably add a Gamo MP9 to the line up, I never got the SteelStorm because it didn't have a shoulder stock but this one does. It has the rotary mags like the PT85 so no full auto or burst but I still want one.

Maybe it would be a good idea for new annual catalogues to be posted as a 'stickie'. That would be a good place for new airgunners to go and see what is available, well, most of the guns. :?:

They announced it last year so your guess is as good as mine. I wouldn't hold my breath if I was you. Asian manufacturers are famous for releasing stuff to test the waters but it's not only what people want they have to be able to make it work.

I'm never sure if I trust KWC. I love their guns, but I sometimes wonder if their announcements arent lost in translation. It seems like some of their catalogs have different information on them. Perhaps I'm just paranoid? There was a paper that came with my tactical 1911 and my Sigma 40F that had all of the 2013 new releases on them, and those revolvers, the Glock, Beretta and M&P were not listed, as well as the Lugar was listed as a non blowback. I also recall the Makarov once being listed as a non blow back (Perhaps an older version?). KWC also doesn't list ANYTHING on their own site.... which is weird and annoying. Its also irritating that the Desert Eagle isn't in 4.5mm? I was sure that would be the first to be converted given that its already on CO2 and seems like an easy alteration. I also want that S&W 4506(?) Springer on the bottom to be converted to 4.5mm blowback. It reminds me of my crosman 1008 which was my very first airgun
