Product Questions

What is the difference between the ALPHA and TRIDENT series?

ALPHA series AEGs are internally tuned with a muzzle energy of less than 1 Joule. The internal components are the same as the TRIDENT series, except for the main spring, cylinder, and motor. The ALPHA series also features a handguard that accepts direct thread rail segments, whereas the handguards on the TRIDENT series use either Keymod or M-LOK rail segments and accessories, depending on the model.

Can an ALPHA model be turned into a TRIDENT model?

Yes, components from the TRIDENT series are compatible with the ALPHA series.

Can you recommend any modifications, upgrades or accessories for my KRYTAC airsoft gun?

KRYTAC Customer Service is not able to provide any guides nor recommendations regarding aftermarket parts nor modifications to your KRYTAC product. We are also not able to give any advice regarding the fitment of aftermarket parts in KRYTAC products. LayLax is currently the only parts manufacturer that we have worked with directly to design upgrade parts for KRYTAC products.

We recommend checking the KRYTAC Community Forum as well as communities like the KRYTAC Owners Group on Facebook to see what modifications other KRYTAC owners have performed and can recommend.

Do you have any updates on your upcoming products?

Our research and development team is always hard at work, whether it is improving our current lineup or developing new products. We are not able to comment on anything beyond official announcements. Please see our News page for official press releases, subscribe to our email newsletter, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

Does KRYTAC produce any gas-powered airsoft guns?

All current KRYTAC airsoft guns are battery powered.

What kind of battery do you recommend for my KRYTAC airsoft gun?

KRYTAC airsoft guns are designed to operate with either a 7.4v or 11.1v Lithium Polymer (LiPo) battery pack, depending on the model and region configuration. When using an 11.1v LiPo battery pack, for best results we recommend a battery pack that outputs no more than 25-30 amps.

Most KRYTAC airsoft guns are configured to accept an 11.1v LiPo battery, however some models are designed to operate best with a 7.4v LiPo battery, such as the ALPHA series. Additionally, some markets have energy output restrictions and therefore use a lower spring rate and KRYTAC 20K motor. We recommend using a 7.4v LiPo battery with these models.

Using a battery pack that is outside of our recommended specifications may lead to less than desirable operating conditions, such as the loss of semi-automatic fire mode, known as overspin.

There are many battery pack manufacturers on the airsoft market. As we have not worked with any specific manufacturers, we are not able to provide specific battery pack recommendations for your KRYTAC airsoft gun. We are only able to provide the guidelines above.

What is/was DEFIANCE? Some of my parts say DEFIANCE, but newer versions say KRISS instead.

DEFIANCE was a division of KRYTAC parent company KRISS USA, producing accessories, sound suppressors, and a line of .22LR rimfire sporting rifles. Some of these real firearm accessories under the DEFIANCE brand were adapted for airsoft use. The DEFIANCE brand was consolidated under the main KRISS brand in order to simplify branding. Accessories, such as the grip, sights, stock, and handguards, are still the same, and will bear the KRISS branding.

What kind of battery connector does KRYTAC use, T-Plug or mini-Tamiya?

All KRYTAC models manufactured after June 2020 have a T-Plug connector (previously known as “Deans Ultra Plug”) as the primary battery connector. An adapter is included to be able to use a battery pack with a mini-Tamiya connector.

The officially licensed Barrett REC7 series has come standard with a T-Plug battery connector since its launch in April 2020.

How do I register my KRYTAC product?

Product registration is quick and easy with our online Product Registration form. Registration is optional and not required for warranty validation.

Product registration is for domestic United States sales only. Outside of the United States, please contact your region’s official importer to see if product registration is required or requested.

Can I get my KRYTAC product serviced directly by KRYTAC / KRISS USA?

KRYTAC and parent company KRISS USA does not directly service airsoft guns as we do not operate an airsoft service center. If your KRYTAC product requires service, whether it is under warranty or out of warranty, the KRYTAC distributor for your region will be able to assist you. Please see our Warranty Information page for more information.

Am I able to request replacement parts directly from KRYTAC??

No. KRYTAC and parent company KRISS USA does not maintain any inventory of KRYTAC replacement parts. This is handled by our worldwide distribution network. You will need to contact the KRYTAC importer/distributor for your region. Please see our Warranty Information page for more information.

Does removing the orange flash hider void warranty?

In the United States, removing the orange muzzle device in itself does not void the warranty, but may be illegal in your jurisdiction; please be sure to follow your local laws and regulations regarding these safety markings.

Any damage or malfunctions that may occur during the process of this modification or as a result of this modification is not covered under warranty as the warranty protects you against manufacturing defects, not user error.

Please note that this may differ depending on the warranty requirements and laws and regulations for your country, and the above is valid in the US only. If you are outside of the United States, please contact the KRYTAC importer and distributor for your region for more information.
