I took this to my local field today which is in a wooded area and has heavy amounts of brush. BUT this gun took it like a champion! It had no problem what so ever going through the heavy brush where other AK's would start having things break off of it, but this had no problem. The gun its self is a monster with a fast rate of fire on just a 8.4v. The gun is rock solid and you would expect nothing but that out of these guns. There are 3 people (including myself) at my field that have an E&L ak. One is a AKM and the other is the one with the para stock and wood furniture. They both love their guns so much. We all feel that you just can't go wrong with one of these guns. One complaint how ever that we all share is the battery space. It is lacking that and by that I mean you can't put a 9.6v. I ran it today with the 8.4v, but soon I am getting a bunch of 7.4v lipos to run in it. Other than that there isn't one other problem that I can find.
-Solid build quality
-Have hand written QC papers with them
-Amazing rate of fire
-Accurate at 200 with out any upgrades (I would suggest getting a tightbore for it just for even longer ranges)
-Weight (it is so balanced you barely notice it at all)
-Weight (can be a con if you aren't used to carrying heavier guns like this or you are a smaller player)
-Battery space (Biggest complaint)
Nothing else!!!! For the money you can't buy a better AK then this!!!!
