For: SRC Full Metal/Real Wood AK-74U GBB Rifle Airsoft GunProduct Information:
I purchased this gun 2 years ago as a means to get my feet wet in the GBBR world and have been more than satisfied with my purchase. The receiver is made of steel, as is the flash hider, outer barrel, front sight, gas block and receiver cover while the stock appears to be aluminium. The stock also has a very small horizontal wobble to it which is annoying but fixable. The recoil is light, though highly enjoyable and the ROF is good for an assault rifle. FPS is very high with mine chronoing at 450 to 475 FPS, much higher than most fields will allow. I am currently attempting to drop the FPS by installing a shorter inner barrel (110mm VS 225mm) which will, in theory, give the gas more room to expand. The main issue I encountered with the weapon is actually in the magazines. The outer shells for magazines are constructed out of plastic and lack the metal reinforcements on the forward lip that the real steel AK-74 mags have, meaning that jarring impacts to the magazine tend to break said forward lip. While this design flaw is unfortunate, as long as you are not excessively hard on your weapon you should be alright.
All in all. I would definitely recommend this weapon to anyone looking to try a GBBR or to someone looking for a new weapon to add to their arsenal.
