Well, we’re not quite sure about the use of the word “tiresome” here, but the news keeps rolling in from the USA and some of you out there may already have seen this copy of an agreement letter dated 18 January telling us all about a new partnership between Kalashnikov USA and Lancer Tactical!

By the looks of things it would appear that Lancer tactical will be working directly with the “BIG K USA” with a licence agreement in place to replicate some pretty unique fierarms and accessory parts in airsoft form (oh, go on Lancer, do a KS-12T!!!).

We’ve been saying for some years that we expect to see more engagement between airsoft and the “real deal” firearms manufacturers, and this looks like another step in the right direction to get us the true replica models that many of us want… will they be any good?

Only time and testing will tell!
