This ak is based of the AK74 SU varient.
I purchased a fire power AK74, which is this gun right here but placed in an american box.
A few things need to be stated to give props to this gun.
The fore grip, hand guard and butt stock have a rubberized coating, so they feel very nice compared to abs but not as good as nylon fiber.
The body is plastic, the upper receiver is metal but serves no purpose on the full stocked version.
The front sight and rear sight are metal, and due to the front sight being attached to the hand guard assembly, the sights do not "lean". full length barreled ak's have a tendency to have a twisting barrel..
The inner gear box and motor are very decent. For its fire power set up, the gear box should last if you use .20's and are not too rough with it *do not fire full auto past 3 seconds on a lower grade gear box*.
Magazines are going to be easy to come by, in many sizes, shapes, colors etc.
The battery is a very tight fit if the solid stock version.
The front RAS system is somewhat a waste. When you put a foregrip on, it makes it tough to get the mags out in a timely fashion .
The body is ABS.... not nylon fiber or anything cool like that.
The metal is a low grade iron, which means it will rust and it WILL if it gets wet.
Paint does not cling to pot metal or iron very well, it will flake off, it will scrape off.
Inner gear box is Hell... when I opened mine up, it had 6 colors of grease in different amounts. Over greasing makes the gear box noisy and slows down your ROF. This black, red, dark green and orange goop covered one gear so much it stained the brass to a yellowish brown... the other two gears were a silver color.
The hop up is a pile. It is made of a harder plastic than ABS. ABS will flex some and give under stress, this plastic *I forget its name* will not, and cracks very easily. The one I had broke into pieces as I pulled it out....
The inner barrel will be difficult to find tight bores for, since this is the SU and not the full length AK.
External upgrades are limited, mounting rails will also be difficult. Most starter players do not have the know how to drill or the money to buy expensive mounts
Fun to shoot
upgradability is lacking
