I think this is a marketing ploy and that is not a bad thing. If the product shoots like an HW100 but has a smaller mag and synthetic stock but sits well below the normal price tag for an HW100, then they have reached a new market who can't quite afford a new HW100 but may be able to afford this model, then they have succeeded. I don't think for one minute this company would produce an SMK in order to gain new market share so the quality should be what you expect from this gun stable.
A good move on their part in my mind.
