Before purchasing this I was looking around somewhat for an AK aeg until a field buddy of mine had this same rifle only with the fake wood furniture and he let me go a couple rounds with it. Let me tell you something, this aeg worked phenomenally and really exceeded my expectations of an AK variant (myself being an M4 style player) it felt really natural and VERY sturdy. After playing around that day I knew I had found the AK I wanted to buy. Behold, the CYMA CM036a.
Beautiful. The wood has a dark reddish finish almost just like the product picture. It's either mahogany or oak.
Sturdy. If you slapped an "IKEA" sticker on there I would believe it.
Matte finish, doesn't give a cheap impression.
Well made; internally and externally.
Rear sight post is stout and wont slip on you.
600 round magazine.
Rail mount; currently using it :D
Has a good feel, like, you have to hold one.
Good rate of fire with a 8.4 but the "M120" is too strong in my opinion.
Magazines that can fit it that I've tested are Dboys, Echo1 and JG. No issues.
It's a CYMA!
Scratches. Really. Easy. (selector switch mainly, just be careful with the rest of the body)
The M120. I know most of you see this as an advantage but it shoots around 430 with .25 and my field has a 400fps cap.
Battery storage area is a lot smaller compared to the fake wood stock. It can fit a small 8.4 and my lipo's fine but above that I don't see it fitting.
Comes shimmed but not fine shimmed to the pinion gear. Not really a huge problem considering all clones are the same way.
Dont let these "cons" discourage you. I tend to critique a lot on small things. BUY IT.
