For: CM048S Full Metal/Real Wood AKS-47 AEG Airsoft GunProduct Information:
Cyma is known for building high performance low cost AK's. And in this case they really stepped up their game.
The guns externals are the best from cyma but they are not the best. The pistol grip is much larger than real life but i dont care as they have to fit a motor in it so... The folding stock, trigger guard, mag release, lower & upper recievers along with the cleaning rod and gas tube were steel on mine.
The barrel, front sight post, trigger, and the "block" below the rear sight post are cheap pot metal. The wood wasnt too bad, its hardware wood but whatever its an AK. The finish on the wood was terribly ugly so i sanded mine down and re stained it a russian dark red-brown.
The internals of the gun are what really makes it. The gun comes with a 6.04mm barrel, a metal hop up chamber (cheap metal as my hop up adjustor came in 2 pieces, it still works but cmon cyma.)
The hop up bucking seems solid for a stock gun, there are better ones but they wont make that much a difference.
The motor is again decent, i dont own a soddering gun so i would not replace mine.
The gear box is metal and very durable. The gears, piston, and almost everything in the gear box is well built.
My upgrades to mine: restained grips which really makes this gun look great. A 6.01 mm madbull $45 barrel, 9.6v battery (recomended to anyone buying this, the gun is NOT lipo ready imo, maby a 7.4), The shim job was terrible so i reshimed it. I also have a supressor on mine.) I have some other various things i just cant remember...
With these upgrades i can shoot up to 90 yards!
50 yards you can hit a man almost every time
75 yards about 2/5 the time etc
Currently im looking to sell mine as i have had it for a year now and i want some money to buy an E&L AK, they are over $300 and it would look good with my kwa glock 19)
In conclusion I think the cm048 line is the best performing aeg for $150.
Good rof on 9.6 v battery
Stock accuracy and range are as good as it gets for a stock gun
internals will last a long time and are high quality
externals are pretty nice for $150
very easy to take apart and easy to upgrade
Lots of various pot metal used
stock wood grips are low quality and the finish/stain is terrible imo
hop up lever came broke
stock 8.4 v battery came defective, probably just wire problem, i dont care as i never planned on using it
paint finish is a matt black as apose to the gray-blue-black finish on the real ones
ALL these are minor complaints and they dont matter because your getting more than you pay for anyways.
