    Default No more Magpul PTS productos for the Airsoft Market

    So "PTS will be halting production of all Magpul related airsoft components immediately. This action was determined in conjunction with Magpul USA to stem the proliferation of counterfeit Magpul USA & Magpul PTS components".

    When information broke out that Magpul will be stopping production of its products for the airsoft market, there was a collective gasp of disbelief. Reactions were varied, but mostly of dread. Magpul, through its Professional Training Simulation (PTS) Division, has made big in roads in this market without rip-offs taking a big chunk of revenues from company. Airsoft players flocked to genuine Magpul products that are compatible with airsoft guns, knowing that they're having the real deal, albeit made specifically for the airsoft market.

    When we got the information from the posting of Airsoft Outlet Northwest and wrote about it, Popular Airsoft sent an inquiry regarding this as there was no official public announcement from PTS or Magpul. PTS always sends updates and announcements and it was such a surprise that such a development in the airsoft market, there was no official statement.

    As of this writing, there was no response from PTS, which has its headquarters in Hong Kong.

    [LEFT]One would assume that the no public announcement was made so that there won't be an immediate shortage of PTS products among retailers when airsoft players get their supplies knowing that the products won't be available in the foreseeable future or not to give advance notice to manufacturers and sellers of unauthorized copies and catch them unaware. Whatever is the action of PTS and Magpul, we'll have to assume that what they are doing are for the best of both airsoft and real steel communities. And also for their own benefit as business entities.[/LEFT]
    [LEFT]Should you buy your PTS needs for that airsoft project you have right now? We do recommend that you do so, especially if what you need is essential for your airsoft gun. As for the campaign of Magpul and PTS to stamp out counterfeit products, we say good luck to them. However, with the vacuum left by the absence of genuine Magpul products for the airsoft market, counterfeit makers may just fill that rather than go into retreat further as more customers prefer the genuine products for airsoft.[/LEFT]

    Oh no... I wanted a MOE grip for my M4 GBBR, and it's all sold out ! Just some ugly ones left colored in Multicam, while I just wanted a plain TAN or Coyote Brown...

    And what will I do if something breaks in my ACR and I need parts ?

    That sucks... See, this is why counterfeiters are evil !

    I haven't dealt with them but I can tell you I haven't seen anyone complaining about them. They're one of the three shops that have their add on wmasg.pl which is like the site for polish airsofters. They also get their praise on their forum and they've been in the business for 8 years at least.
