Product Information:
This gun, for what you pay for is surprisingly sturdy. I've dropped it before, and almost slammed it when I tripped myself once, and nothing more than a few scratches have appeared on the exterior. On the inside, I'm sure it's the same; most CYMAs that are of the later models are built like tanks, and surprisingly enough, the performance with an 8.4v 1100mAh stick type (the stock battery) isn't too bad, but the life leaves more to be desired. Also, the magazine isn't the best hicap, but it functions.

Pros:
- Sturdy
- Hefty (not entirely too heavy, but it has weight to it)
- Internal sturdiness


Cons:
- Somewhat lackluster internals after a while
- Low Battery Life
- Alright hi-cap

Product Information:
The CM.040D is different from CYMA's previous AK-styled airsoft rifles. Interestingly, it uses a different design from even previous versions of the CM.040. Unlike previous offerings from CYMA, this rifle is a VFC clone, and a high quality one at that. Everything that is metal on the real gun is metal (steel, not pot metal) on this, leaving only the handle and foregrip as plastic (in line with the synthetic furniture on the real one). This gun is labeled an AK-101, but looks identical to a late-model AKS-74, as the primary difference between the real 74 and 101 is the caliber (5.45mm versus 5.56mm). The only problem I've had with the exterior was that the rear sight was somewhat wobbly, but the entire rear sight block can be replaced with one from an actual AK for about $30. Overall this gun matches the real steel AK-74 very well.

The gun disassembles easily, requiring just two pins to be knocked out to remove the barrel assembly and two screws to remove the hop-up, although note that a gear on the gearbox prevents it from easily sliding out of the body, so use a screwdriver to get a bit of leverage and bend the body far enough for it to come out.

Performance-wise, it does very well for the price. It hits hard, at just under 400 with .20s- I recommend using .25s, as it has more than enough power, and the improved accuracy makes a big difference at longer range. The included battery is a decent stick-type NiMH, and provides a good rate of fire, but is only 1400mAH which may not be enough for longer games. Only stick-types will work, as the battery runs along the top of the gearbox into the rear sight block. A high-cap magazine is included, which works fine but has all the usual high-cap flaws- CYMA sells 150-round midcaps quite cheaply, and they work much better.

Overall, this is an excellent rifle. It has great externals, and comes with a strong spring. For beginners, the battery is adequate and the internals are better than most other guns in the price range. For more veteran players, the starting spring doesn't require replacement, making it a bit simpler and cheaper to upgrade, although finding a battery that fits may be a concern. Still, for the externals alone, this gun is worth every penny.

Bottom line: CYMA has improved their build quality immensely over the past few years, and this gun does not look nor feel its price. If you're looking for an affordable AK-type AEG but don't want the overused and outdated AK-47, this is the gun to get.

Pros:
-Fantastic externals
-High stock muzzle velocity
-Better battery than most Chinese guns come with
-Easy disassembly
-Solid construction

Cons:
-Only works with stick batteries due to skeletal stock
-Nothing special about barrel, hop-up, or gearbox (besides the spring)
-No rails to attach useless Chinese optics to
-Same weight as real thing, not for kids

Okay, So I Got this gun today and tested it out. Take my word for it, It Was Badass! 400 freakin FPS! It Does, However, Weigh alot. I think its around 10 Pounds or more. the folding stock im metal, the reciever, barrel and unjamming rod are, too. My freind had his M1A1 Thompson and we were shooting at a box and mine made his look like a little kids toy. Anyways, I would greatly reccomend buying this gun.

Pros:
-Alot of Metal Parts
-400 FPS
-High Cap Mag
-Heavy (good or bad)
-Hop-up is easy to change
-Great Price

Cons:
-Battery is hard to get in and out, At first
-Heavy (good or bad)
-Unjaming rod is hard to put back in once you get it out
-Folding stock does wobble a little bit

First off when I recieved this gun it was shooting 415, something not allowed at my field. So I had to swap out the spring. I ended up swaping most things out with:
Systema Cylinder Type 0
Private Parts m100 Spring
Supercore Piston
Systema Explosive piston head

The result has given me a gun that is reliable through 3 games one being at sequoia which was dusty and I bet a lot of dirt got into it.
Overall this gun has a solid metal construction, the parts that are metal/plastic are:
Flash-hider=Metal
Outer Barrel/Gas Receiver=Pot Metal
hand-guard=plastic
upper/lower reciever=metal
Folding stock=metal
Grip=Plastic
All the plastic parts are either not ABS or very strong.

Now for the accuracy part I cant vouch for it much, this might be my scope offset, but I could never get a consistent shot off...

Pros:
Good Metal Construction
Folding Stock
Good reliability
Works with Ak47 Mags(although it looks tacky and often misfeeds)
Optional Rail Mount that can be bought here:

Has a nice clack when you cock it back.


Cons:
Not very consistant in it's shots
Shots drop off after a while(have to angle it to get around 200ish)
Outer barrel is made of pot metal
Flimsy internal Piston (Never broke it since I switched it out within the first 100 shots)
