I can't believe people aren't buying these things up very quickly. I finally decided to try out an AK after getting some H&K and Armalite guns. Deciding on an AK is a hard choice because of so many out there. I kept looking around at many different AKs, but I kept returning to this one. I kept putting off buying this, and I have no idea why. I should have bought this sooner. I absolutely love this AK, and I can't believe there aren't many reviews out there about this gun.
The feel of this rifle is awesome. The black furniture is rubberized and the body is a great, heavy duty, plastic. The upper receiver cover is metal, and you don't ever have to mess with it to get to the battery. I think the black furniture gives it a more modern and tactical look on an older gun without going over the top like some other AKs. This gun looks great plain with my green and tan PMC loadouts. I even played with it during an OP wearing woodland MARPAT and Coyote Brown gear. It looked great.
The gearbox is great quality. When it is fired, you can tell it is made in Taiwan and that is is not some Chinese clone.
I recently got a box of King Arms mid caps for it, and they fit and work great with it. I have tried an Echo1 hi cap, and it works well, also.
I was VERY surprised to see a metal hop up unit in this thing. It also looks like a stainless steel barrel. I was expecting a crappy plastic hop up with a brass barrel. I almost included a G&G metal hopup and tightbore in my order when I made it. I am glad I didn't!
There are only a few things I would change. I couldn't fit my Large 9.6v in the stock like shown in the video, but I have plenty of other mini 9.6v batteries to use. Also, the metal receiver cover has a little bit of play back and forth. Also, I had to drop some super glue into the forward sling mount to get it to stop moving around and making noise. But for only $156 I can ignore that stuff.
Awesome accuracy with 0.2g and 0.25g BBs
