Brass eagle selling soft air guns

Sorry if this was already posted but I just noticed it on another site and figure I'd mention it here.

Quote:
Brass Eagle, LLC., a K2 Inc.(NYSE: KTO) Company, announced today that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with Cybergun S.A. (EURONEXT:CYB) based in Bondoufle, France and its subsidiary Soft Air USA, Inc. for the distribution of its branded and licensed Airsoft products to traditional paintball dealers in both the U.S. and International markets.

Lynn Scott, President of Brass Eagle, stated We are excited about the potential that this new relationship brings to our business. The Airsoft category has shown tremendous growth over the past few years and we look for this to continue. We are providing paintball dealers direct access to the leading brands and products in the Airsoft industry today which will complement and enhance their overall product assortment.

Jerome Marsac, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Cybergun, commented Our exclusive partnership with the leading company in Paintball will allow us to greatly expand distribution and service to our customer base. Paintball and Soft Air enthusiasts are similar in many ways. It was natural to create a business partnership between Brass Eagle and Cybergun in order to offer the largest choice to both end users.

Cybergun S.A and its subsidiary Soft Air USA, Inc. market Airsoft products under the Cybergun Brand and via exclusive worldwide licenses from Smith & Wesson, Desert Eagle, P. Beretta, UZI, FAMAS, Taurus, Tanfoglio, Mauser, DPMS Panther Arms, Thompson, Swiss Arms, SIG ARMS, SIG SAUER, Kalashnikov and Mossberg.

Brass Eagle, LLC., based in Bentonville, Arkansas, USA is the worldwide leader in the manufacturing, marketing and distribution of a full-line of paintball products under the Worr Game Products, JTUSA, Viewloader and Brass Eagle brands. For Soft Air USA products, contact WGP/JT USA dealer sales in Corona, California at (800) 587-2246.

Right on.
This means we'll be seeing a whole new selection at Canadian Tire!
I can barely withhold my joy!!

*sarcasm alert*

EDIT:

unless of course my predisposed views of Brass Eagle have me fooled. In which case we can expect a "whole new selection of crap-ass AEG's!!"
I can barely withhold my joy.

THAT is the reason we can't get full trades on out QUALITY AEGs, GBBs, etc.
because the real steal manufacturers decided to sign with an inferior company, with an inferior product????

ah $%#%

Has anyone every used one of there products? Some of them dont look half bad, but maybe its just because of all the real steel markings.

Exactly what I was thinking. But to add one thing if it wasnt bad enought they could get the see through pistols and paint them now they can buy a "cheap" M4 look alike so cops dont have to decipher the real from the not they'll just shoot then look at the gun or like in the Burnaby one when the guy goes for his gun b/c of a "language barrier" hell get shot instead of disturbing the peace style charges.

Yaaaa

My god what people will sacrifce for money.

Brass Eagle and quality should NOT be used in the same sentense... unless it also includes "CRAP" and variation of it.
Think CYMA of paintball world 8-O

From what it looks like, Cybergun and TM are partnered on their line of guns. It seams that Cybergun is merely re-marketing AEG TM guns under their name. Even rumors suggest joint operations between ICS and Cybergun for a new line of armalites, go HERE for information. This is not the case for springers, the springers look like crap, but the AEG's seem to be TM or at least exact ripoffs.

Lets look at the evidence: go HERE and check out the Cybergun stats on a FAMAS, an EG-560 Motor? That sounds pretty TM to me... Even the provided technical diagrams are exactly the same, Cyber gun just took the TM gun diagram and spread the parts out. Goto HERE for Cybergun FAMAS tech. and goto HERE for the TM tech. manual. Look at the included picture to see a direct comparison. Of course, BOTH technical diagrams are also in Japanese...

I could be wrong. Cybergun could have bought access to the TM molds, electronics, and technical data and made their own guns... If someone has any information that can affirm or counter this, it would be appreciated, because if BrassEagle/Cybergun is merely importing TM guns to Canada, then I support this. What I don't support is selling them in Walmart or Canadian Tire, because everyone is right, these should not be sold to parents of minors in an easily accessible box store setting with no responsibility.

You would think that TM had hop up trademarked. The logo looks pretty much the same...?? Many quality Japanese products are sold to American companies, only to be poorly?/cheaply reproduced. Try comparing J gundam models to the ultra cheesy Us versions. :x:

It seems a lot of you aren't familiar with Cybergun; they're a European distributor, basically, nothing more. You'll notice, if you click the Cybergun website link in trufret's post, that the KWC Mini Uzi, some Maruzen shotguns, Marushin revolvers, and ICS AEGs are there (you can even see the ICS logo on some of the boxes, and in the product name).

I'd compared Cybergun to something like a European MFI Airsoft, minus a layer or two of bullshit. So it sounds like SoftAir USA just wants to tap into Brass Eagle's market.

I have a hard time conceiving any of it would make it into Canada, or you'd be finding ICS AEGs at Canadian Tire.
