For: Echo 1 Red Star AK 74U BOLT Airsoft GunProduct Information:
This AEG is worth every penny and performs flawlessly. I've had it for about four months now and no problems or malfunctions have come up. I use it at Gamepod Combat Zone with great results. It has the perfect velocity for indoor airsoft games. It's a little low for outdoor use but still works fine. Only plastic parts are the flash hider, pistol grip, and crane stock. All of which are nice strong plastics. I love the metal RIS. The bottom rail is the perfect length for a MagPul AFG. The pistol grip is very comfortable compared to the standard AK pistol grips. The crane stock does wobble a little bit but nothing to really complain about. The internals are nice with 7mm steel bearings. Hop-up is easy to adjust. I was a little disappointed that it came with no rear sling mount but that's not a big deal. It does however have a front sling mount on the left side of the front sight for a two/three point sling.
If you like AK-74U's and want a nice rail system and adjustable stock as well I highly recommend this.
Full, durable metal. Not cheap stuff.
Excellent length, size, and weight. Small yet has a nice heft to it (6.5lb., 26.5"-29.5")
Stock rate of fire is decent and I'm happy with it. (15 rounds per second w/ 9.6v)
Metal rail system.
Can fit a 12.8v stick battery if desired!
Adjustable crane stock.
Pre upgraded pistol grip - I highly dislike standard AK pistol grips.
Comes with two nice 550 round hi-cap mags.
Awesome metal internals for the price.
No wobbles or clunky parts, excluding the crane stock.
Can be wired to the rear if desired.
Receiver cover locks tightly into place. When opened it's spring loaded keeping it up making battery changes easier.
Fire selector is smooth and crisp
Does not come with a rear sling mount. I recommend the Echo 1 Sling Adapter for M16. It's meant for fixed stocks, but it is a direct fit on this gun. This is the sling adapter that Echo 1 Tech recommended to me personally and is guaranteed to fit nice and tight with no modding. This AEG's buffer tube is different than most due to being an AK-74U and that is the sling adapter that will fit for sure. Can be found on Airsoft GI for $15.
Slight wobble in the crane stock, but nothing too bad that you can't fix.
Too heavy for some people's liking. I personally like the realistic feel.
