KRYTAC – Trident LMG Enhanced AEG


KRYTAC, KRISS Group’s training and simulation brand, will be releasing the new Trident LMG Enhanced airsoft rifle this coming August. Designed to combine the look and function of the AR platform with a full-sized machine gun, the Trident comes with a KeyMod handguard and shortened barrel for customization and maneuverability. It features a reinforced 8mm ball bearing gearbox with integrated MOSFET and an easy access spring guide system. The Trident is capable of firing 6mm BBs at velocities exceeding 380 fps, at a rate of 20+ rounds per second.

Additional features include:

  • 6-position battery stock
  • Aluminum alloy receiver
  • Lightweight polymer piston
  • Also coming soon from KRYTAC is the licensed Warsport LVOA .22LR rimfire rifles and AEGs. We’ll have more info on those as it becomes available.

      Is that a real rifle stock and if so who makes it?

      • MAA_Archer says:

        it’s kriss’s house design, so no real-steel equivalent (yet)

        • MRE spoon says:

          Always liked that design but, *This part is a non-firearm part and is intended for AIRSOFT use only. *

      Looks very similar to a Magpul ACS…

      Trollish ? Here: Shouldn’t this be on tactical fanboy?

      Actual Question: How many people actually airsoft for a training exercise who shoot real steal? I’m not implying there aren’t people out there that do that, but rather asking what’s the general consensus as I have not encountered many myself nor am I implying it’s not a viable method of training as according to Travis Hailey, it is.

      • m5 says:

        Why would anyone use a toy gun for training? (And who is this Hailey?) At least there are much better alternatives, in particular the live-training simulator systems allowing “real” engagements with “real” targeting using blanks in actual weapons. Afaik, US Army, Navy and Marines, amongst others, use the infantry live-training systems by SAAB.

          LoL. Pimp your product much?

          • m5 says:

            ?? No, I don’t work for Saab, unfortunately, but I have used their training products.

            • spc411b says:

              Simunition is much more effective training method than MILES; as I’ve only ever seen MILES work when there is an OC around with a god gun. Sorry to bash your company’s product, good sir, but it’s a waste of the tax payers dollars.

        • Ab5olut3zero says:

          Most private citizens- me for example- can’t afford to pick up simunitions or any variant of them with the appropriate weapon mods. Airsoft and PTWs in particular, are great at filling the training gap between paintball and better options out there. Add to that the WTF factor from untrained folks running around like crazed circus clowns and it makes for an interesting training event to say the least.

          When I play I try to carry as close to what I do in the field including personally owned armor and to at least work on personal movement techniques, breaching, landnav, anything I can do solo. If I have a trained team, we try and do it as closely as possible to real-world SOPs. This was easier when I was in school because my team were all guys in ROTC or prior-service. Weapons like this enhance the training level greatly by providing similar accuracy, round count, and near identical weight to the real thing. No training truly simulates the real thing, but this sure as hell beats Bang-Bangin with cadet bullets.

            Most private citizens don’t do infantry training, so I kind of assumed a military context. That said, I’ve been trying to teach my kids some basics whilst playing with airsoft toys. And I’m certainly not familiar with higher end airsoft equipment, and had to google what a PTW is.

            A private person buying a “professional training weapon” (a trade-mark) has to be pretty serious about training, as an “AR” PTW costs about the same as the real thing, $1500-1700. Granted, the “ammo” is much cheaper, and this is of course still nowhere near the cost of military-grade live-training simulators.

            There is no way an airsoft gun can provide similar accuracy to the real thing. A light-weight pellet at upto 540 fps from a smoothbore barrel simply cannot. At very close quarters, perhaps, but otherwise I’d assume that traditional training with actual service weapons shooting blanks (without any of the simulator kit) would be a much better option for training.

            Sure, airsoft, like paintball, can be loads of fun, and the risk of being actually “hit” certainly motivates proper movement etc.

      Someone please make that upper and sell it to me.

    5. Gregor says:

      Isn’t the idea of training with airsoft guns, that the handling of the “guns” is as realistic as possible? Hard to imagine that this M249/M4 mashup does that job

      • james says:

        It is based on the Ares Shrike. One of the few affordable beltfed 5.56 options. 4-5k for an upper 20k for an m16, good luck finding any other NFA 5.56 belt fed in that price range or with that versatility. There are also semi uppers for those playing with bump stocks and maybe eventually the Franklin BFS trigger.

      This should be on Tactical Fanboy….

    7. Daniel Lynn says:

      I am confused. Kriss is making Airsoft gun?

      • Yes, KRISS has a training and simulation line called KRYTAC, which was established back in 2013.

        They specialize in airsoft and recreational firearms, and currently have the Warsport LVOA license. Although their current line consists solely of AEGs, they will be producing .22LR rifles in the near future.

    8. JS says:

      Didn’t KRISS acquire KWA(airsoft manufacturer) a few years ago?

      • Hardcover says:

        KWA did at one point have a license from KRISS to make a gas blowback replica of the Vector SMG, but they didn’t buy the company. I believe KWA is actually just the North American rebrandinf of the Taiwanese airsoft manufacturer KSC.

      Airsoft seems like a nice way to get a feel for attachments and accessories on your rifle without having to go out to the range, the more I think about it.

      Let’s say you are waiting on your form 1 to come in on an SBR. You could figure out how your want your illuminator, iron sights, optic position, handstops, rail covers, etc work on an airsoft rifle, and by the time your form 1 rolls in, you will just have to transfer everything over and now waste time figuring out your lateral limits and how to maneuver with a smaller or differently shaped weapon.
