A short description.
The gun is made of nylon fiber, while the hand grips/stock are made of a smoother varient of the nylon with a light rubber coating. The black looks very nice - and gives it a somewhat modern look.
The metal parts are made of a nice quality metal, well polished, no flash marks, no "weld points" that you see when chinese companies stick two pieces of pot metal together.
The threaded barrel is protected by a METAL orange tip
The front and rear sights, barrel, gas port/tube and ram rod are all metal. The sling mounts, butt plate, trigger guard, mag release, bolt, dust cover are metal. NOTE! If you have ever pulled the bolt back on a G&G proline AK, you will notice it has a more realistic feel because it has a fake piston and uses a much larger spring. This AK has a "JG/CYMA" bolt that it is just a thin strip of metal. Still, the report is nice, and the small spring is very stiff.
The mag is a 65 round mid cap, I recommend a Dboys or JG ak mag... or two lol... 1200 rounds is alot! MY mag came covered in a sticky grease, the rest of the gun was fine.
1000 bb's included, use them, dont throw them away.
FPS is solid and this makes for a great mid-range field rifle. The ROF on an 8.4 of poor quallity is outstanding, so imagine a great intellect or elite battery, or even a 9.6v. The 9.6 large may take some work, my intellect is slightly larger than a regular 9.6 so that may be why mine is hard to fit (lol)
Internally the gun is great, full metal hop up (On a "sportline" I KNOW RIGHT?!) And the internals are on par with the proline gearbox... well.. it is a proline gear box! minus a ball bearing spring guide and piston head... oh and ball bearing 8mm bushings. It does have a full metal spring guide and full metal copper bushings... this gun isnt going to wear out any time soon.
If you are into upgrading, or changing the battery, there is plenty of space for an 8.4 stick battery if you rewire the weapon to have its battery under the dust cover.
FPS for mine was personally chrono-ed at 370-380. Pretty consistent and higher fps than my G&G combat machine m4.
I highly recommend this gun over the JG or CYMA ak... they may have been great guns for the money then, but now that this thing has come out, this is the better deal. yeah you need a battery and charger, but chinese guns come with crap batteries and chargers anyways!
My mag was nasty greasy lol
