Ok first please note that we got this a long time ago and things could have changed with the way the gun is made.
My brother has always been fond of the ak-series of guns, and when this first came out he started drooling. I didnt like the ak guns but CYMA made a pretty good ak-47, (we both had one) and dan wanted to upgrade. At the time upgrading was a LOT more expensive and didnt have a very good success rate. so what he did was he purchased this gun. FOR 20 BUCKS! thats right. 20 bucks. he bought it as a parts gun from a local store and just used the body with his old ak-gearbox and the spring from this gun (which actualy chronoed' in at close to 400 fps w/.2) into the gun. If i remember correctly, the gun had a PLASTIC gearbox. anyway, he upgraded it and to my knowlage, the gun still works.
for summery, refer to the pros/cons
looks bad A$$ with the scope mounted on it
stock works on normal ak bodies. barrel too.
can be used as a support weapon
not very strong construction
small mag (good if a sniper)
stick battery is tight fit
overall i would say a good gun for the new player, if you have past airsoft exp and want a sniper, keep looking. if you are a new/er player than this might be the right choice, but you WILL have to upgrade to a better gun sooner than later.
