With it's unique real wood, full metal features this look-alike RPK is definitely a support weapon! The only plastic on this baby is the tough pistol grip and the orange ring wrapped around the tip of the barrel! Firing from a range of thirty-five (35) yards on full auto without the bi-pod this CM052S AEG maintains shot patterns of 2-4 inches! Unfortunately, I have not had the time to adjust the hop-up system so this is straight out of the box. Although firing straight into winds of 10-20 miles per hour with 0.20g bbs (or any bbs for that matter) isn't recommended, this long barreled AEG retains adequate suppressive fire at 70 plus yards!
After more thorough testing and field use, a secondary follow-up review along with videos will be posted.
Hope this helps tip the scale for all of you interested in a fair priced support weapon!

1.) Battery isn't field changeable.
2.) Stock is difficult to fold because it requires a small shaft to insert into the unlocking mechanism.

4.) The range isn't as far as first expected however further testing will reveal the maximum distance.
