The previous reviews, particularly the one by M. VANDERGRIFF-HUGHES, were very comprehensive. I do have some more points to add based on my experiences:
The stock is a little bit longer than traditional solid AK stocks. This is probably so you can fit up to a large-type stock battery. It will feel a little bit awkward especially if you are of a shorter height but this should not be too much of a problem.
This AEG comes with a black bakelite hi-cap magazine. It feeds very well and feels great. It also fits snugly in to the magazine well so there is no wobble. I have also tried CYMA and ECHO1 AK 47 and AK 74 magazines on my gun. They do fit but it is VERY tight. If you are willing to risk breaking either your magazine or the magazine well just push it right in until you hear a click. Hopefully this means it's secured and not that the plastic cracked.
I got my gun at the Airsoft GI walk-in store so I can test-fire it, simply to make sure I don't get a lemon. The receiving dock/chrono station was unavailable, however, but since there was a quality assurance certificate that said the gun shoots at 360 (the exact FPS I needed) I decided to buy it without getting to try it first. But when I finally got to chrono my gun it only averaged at around 320 FPS. I guess this is a pretty normal drop after the spring got broken-in. And 320 is actually still decent for my standard. It would just have been less of a shock if the broken-in speed was the one that was noted on the QA certificate.
The picture on this website shows a completely blaze orange compensator. Do not let that turn you off because the actual gun only has a about a one inch orange tip.
It has been mentioned in previous reviews... the compensator IS fused to the front sight! I wish I had known about this before I tried removing it. After the usual steps didn't work I got frustrated and tried to force it off. Bad idea because that loosened both the barrel ang the front sight. I fixed the barrel but the sight might have to be replaced to make sure it sits securely again.
One of the last steps of field stripping requires the removal of the barrel cleaning rod. But because of the compensator issue it is impossible to do this in the conventional way. Getting around this is not too hard to figure out once you get there, though.
I highly recommend this AEG to those who want an AK but feel the need for the modularity of a rail system!
Looks and feels great
Roomy battery compartment that can fit up to a large-type battery
Snug magazine well so magazines don't wobble
Heavy metal bolt
Ergonomic pistol grip is an improvement over traditional AK grips
Great price for the quality
A compensator that's VERY difficult to remove
Extra long stock feels awkward especially for shorter people
