Product Information:
I've had this gun for half a year now, and played with it at quite a few events since then. Let me tell you this gun is ridiculous. First thing I noticed when I first got it is the external quality is AMAZING. The best feeling AK i have ever held. I opened up the gun to find that the inner barrel was extremely short compared to the outer barrel, only went sbout half way through which is pretty stupid considering that it can house a 650mm comfortably. No big deal, I went out and bought a 650 to throw in there. Moving on to the hop-up, it's metal and pretty well made, combined with the madbull blue bucking it spins the BB quite well and overall performs very nicely. The gearbox in this gun is ROCK SOLID (the beauty of most Ver3) and upon opening up the gearbox I was very plesantly surpised to see a very good shim job, a metal spring guide, and proper greasing of the gears and piston, in fact I never seen a gearbox come shimmed this well from the factory. The gears seem to be of good quality and will probably hold for a while, however the piston and piston head are OK quality, nothing special and will probably be the first thing to break. Lastly on the internals is the spring. I have no idea why they would ever throw a M130 in there, but they did. You have to drop in a M110 for it to be field legal (I actually put in a M100, b/c with the tightbore it shoots about 382 on it) because you don't want to hurt anybody while you play. Moving on from the internals, the externals on this gun are awesome. The iron sights are real AK sights which is great, however the rear sight fell on the first day i used it, (not a big deal, you can use only the front one with the same results) also the bolt on this gun is extremely realistic, upon pulling it back you get a very satisfying ”ka-chink” sound and the hop up housed underneath is very easily adjustable, even with my big hands. The sling mounts are good, but the rear one could be better, i tightened it and haven't had it break yet, but it definitely isn't as solid as I'd like it to be. The battery compartment in this gun is the only dissapointing thing. You're basically forced to use Li-Pos. ( I don't see why you.wouldn't in the first place though ) I personally use a 20c 7.4 1600mAh Li-Po and it lasts me all day, but if you're planning on using a NiMh then be prepared to switch batteries frquently. Also another thing about the compartment is that the buttplate is screwed on with 2 screws, which in my opinion is great, but to some it might be a problem. Lastly the performance is good out of the box, but with minor upgrades I have put in ( MOSFET, deans connectors, TBB ) this thing performs better than 75% of guns on the field. Semi-auto I can accurately hit a man sized target 250ft out and on full auto about 200ft. Right now I'm shooting 382fps and 17rps and couldn't be happier with the performance of this gun. Buy this gun right now, you will NOT be dissapointed.

I give this product 4* only because it takes a little tweaking and minor upgrades to unlock its full potential
