Product Information:
amazing gun, it's not available at several places but when you can find it it's worth grabbing! As I write this it's on sale for Black Friday for $135 and if you happen to grab it then you are beyond stoked. When I sold off several of my guns to thin the flock so to speak this is one of the 10 that I kept. Overall any cons that I list are definitely not deal breakers, I would grab it even for full price

Pros:
Rock solid construction, as with every single airsoft gun I've ever owned from any company whatsoever always check and make sure all screws are tightened before using it, however once everything is tightened there is very little movement except the handguard which is a con

Large amount of hand guard rails for flashlights lasers or vertical grip

Excellent realistic weight, its heavy but not too very heavy and adjustable M4 style stock is also a definite bonus! It is easily rewirable to the crane stock if you prefer batteries in there, but may take a little bit of modification to get the job done. But if that's the route you are going it's definitely achievable with some basic tech skills and hand / power tools.

Large enough battery compartment for a 10.8 stick battery. If you're like me and have bought several guns you will end up getting included crap battery along the way, I have dissected several 8.4 stick batteries and added cells to create 10.8 batteries which you can also buy in the battery section, with a good charger even the crappy batteries included aren't that bad!

Although I am a decent tech I usually let something break before I decide to try and upgrade, that being said I have never had to go in the gearbox on this and it is very consistent at 345 fps out of the box, I did add a 6.03 tight bore barrel which probably change the FPS slightly but it is definitely very CQB friendly.

After putting probably 10 or 15k rounds through this I have never had one single problem with it, overall entirely a rock solid decision


Cons:
That being said there are a few cons

The ris section has the ability to turn side to side slightly, not so much of wobble but you can push it to the right and push it to the left probably about 3 or 4 degrees each direction, after disassembling the rail section there is no way to eliminate this that I am aware of short of JB welding the barrel clamp to the actual barrel which is what I ended up doing

The gearbox needs to come out of the entire gun in order to change barrels. I personally will buy a longer barrel then needed and cut and recrown using basic tools to get the absolute longest possible barrel into each gun. That being said I put a PKM style flashhider on this and a lonex aftermarket hop-up (because I had a spare) which required me to assemble the barrel in the outer barrel and assemble the bucking and inner barrel to the hop unit while inside the body.

That's about it. Overall it's a great little AK. If you are on the fence between this and another gun, this is the one!

Product Information:
First airsoft gun I got since I got back into the sport, and I love it! I've played it at two games and it performed well except for long range engagements. I'd recommend this more for CQB rather than field, but it's still great for close range encounters due to the size of it. I WOULD give it a five honestly, but there are just too many little cons for that to happen (most are not all that bad, one or two of them are a bit concerning, however).

Pros:
-Feels mostly solid. Only parts that are polymer are the pistol grip and the crane stock (only plastic part is the flash hider), but they don't feel like they're going to break.
-Plenty of rail space for your tacti-cool needs.
-Scope mount adapter if you want to slap one on there.
-Looks different than most other AK-74Us.
-Easy battery access (Press the button on the back of the receiver and the top pops open, battery is stored in the reciever/ handguard area.

Cons:
-Only one sling attatchment point (right behind the flash hider, below the rear sight). The stock has a place for a swivel sling point, but I use paracord since I'd rather use a buffer tube sling point attatchment, but can't find one.
-Handguard turns to the right a little, but can be twisted back easily without damaging it.
-Stock wobbles a little, nothing some electrical tape couldn't fix.
-You would have to remove the rear sight to mount the rail mount on the side if you want it on all the way, but you can get it on there with the two front screws in contact and it will hold up well (I use NC star AK rail mount, but its sits off to the left of the center of the gun, but nothing a little zeroing couldn't fix).
-The only significant proble I've had with this gun (nothing too serious) is getting fresh mags in. Right out of the box mags will require force to get them in the gun for the first time (Echo1 AK-74 Hi-cap mags), it feels like it will break, but it didn't with the four mags I put in it. Once you get a mag in there, the mag will go in alot more easily. (Not sure if this is standard, so forgive me if it is).
-Hop-up likes to move around on its own. You can sand down the little tab you use to move it a bit so it doesn't touch the bolt. You can also put a shim somewhere on it (I haven't done it yet. there is a video on this gun by an Echo1 Tech on ramping up the RPS on it. The email you can contact the Echo1 techs should be on their youtube channel).

Product 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.

Pros:
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

Cons:
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.
