Gunfighter Mk.II with KG12 grip availability?

Postby pavsko » Thu Feb 15, 2018 1:08

Gunfighter with KG12 grip is not mentioned in today's (14. February 2018) announcement. Will be this version available in March as well?

The end of Gladiator production (announced in flightsimcontrols.com) don't implicate that no more KG-12A grips will be available for Gunfighter?

Well, there is KG12 grip available in US VKB store: https://vkbcontrollers.com/?product_cat=gunfighter-3-pin-rev-b-kg12-series
And Gunfighter with KG12 si promised there to be available on 25. february 2018 https://vkbcontrollers.com/?product=vkb-sim-gunfighter-revb-kg12

So I hope VKB will not discontinue "Vintage" Gunfigter version for EU customers...

Ten days from the first post and no answer from VKB so far :(
Is that really so difficult kind of question?

The new KG12 grip for Vintage Gunfighters is under development

Thanks for the answer.
It is good to hear you work on a new version of KG12 grip.
On the other hand, does your answer mean no new Gunfighters with KG12 grip available on March for EU?

OK, thanks.
And my final question: would you give us please some estimated time of availability in EU for Gunfighters with KG12 grip (new or old)?

Cargo was planned to be shipped out before Chinese New Year and was delivered to the port where it got stuck due to customs overload before the holidays.
The holidays for government agencies are officially over on Monday.
Might be a few days before the container gets shipped out.
About 40 days to Europe, then European customs...
Best Regards,

Thanks again for answer AeroGator.
Well, I think there is some misunderstanding in this thread :?
From UIV 's replies to this thread I figured out that Gunfighters with KG12 WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE on March because they are discontinued...
And because UIV wrote that new KG12 grip model is under development, I asked again about the estimated availability of this new model in EU.

I have to say it clearly: I would be satisfied with any version of Gunfighter with KG 12 grip. I only want to know if any version of KG12 Gunfighter will be available in the advertised delivery of VKB products for EU in March. If yes, everything is OK (I am not impatient).

Misunderstanding here.
Discontinued are the Gladiators.
(however even those (PRO version) we still have some little stock that as we hope we sell out soon).
Gunfighters are NOT discontinued, and are not going to be.
Same about KG12, we are happily producing it and (although we have something in mind that might with time replace this grip) KG12 is still in ranks and will remain.
BTW, GFs with KG12 are included in our latest shipment to Europe.
Stay in touch with Ed, as they are coming.
Best Regards,
AeroGator

That is great :) Thanks AeroGator for the positive info and for the clear explanation!
I am looking forward to buying KG12 Gunfighter as soon as it becomes available for EU market.
