“…In addition to this revelation, the CYBERGUN Group has signed with the Austrian arms manufacturer GLOCK a license agreement to develop replicas for training for military procurement and training of forces. CYBERGUN The group will present at the MILIPOL the first two replicas from this collaboration: the GLOCK 17 and GLOCK 19.
BRUGIERE Hugo, who negotiated with the GLOCK group, said: “This is a job for several months that allowed us to obtain, through an order of the French Government, the authorization of the manufacturing of very large arms who never wanted to give licenses to date. Their trust honors us as much as it forces us. The quality standards, respecting the spirit of the house GLCOK and the need to generate among trusted partners have guided our work. The French versions delivered to the Ministry of Interior will be produced and partially assembled in Germany.…”
Remark, nothing is known yet for the worldwide Airsoft industry. Wondering how long it will take till the airsoft industry can enjoy GLOCK licensed products and finally settle all the husstle regarding trademark infringements etc.
We are checking the story as we speak and will develop the story once updates arrive...
