Product Information:
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
Realistic take-down
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

Product Information:
I received my RK103 EVO in early January of this year and just have not been able to get around to writing a review for it. Words fail in describing how incredible this AEG is, yet I will try. Taking this behemoth out of the box, one sees how realistic it is. At 7 and a half pounds in its stripped and empty configuration it almost perfectly mimics the weight and balance of a real AK. Having a full metal body ensures a beautiful external appearance and amazing durability you will not see in plastic AK's. The RIS is plastic, which a positive thing because it is still very durable yet far lighter than a metal RIS, and would probably ruin the balance. Ergonomic pistol grip is a much needed improvement over the smallish and non-friendly generic AK grip.

Onto the one thing that makes the RK series shine in the AEG world of AKs, the bolt. This weapon is so realistic that it has an actual functioning bolt with gas piston in front for maximum realism. Add to that the realistic takedown and it just gets better. This AEG is so realistic that it will fool police so do be discrete about using it.

Accuracy wise, it is an excellent field weapon, managing 5 inch or less groupings at 80 feet with no upgrades, accuracy is still excellent to 140 with proper hop up and ammunition; I can only imagine what it could do with improved internals.

Rate of fire is a moderate 700 or so with the battery that comes with the RK103 starter package; nice and stable ROF that does not waste ammo and still puts enough down range to do the job. Mine came at 370 out of the box but has settled down to about 325 fps with .20 with the spring broken in. Reliability wise, its ridiculous, besides the usual cleaning and maintenance I have never had a single incident where the gun was at fault for a misfire, just nearly depleted batteries or misfeeding magazines.

The realism is so complete that G&G has perfectly replicated the AK sights. AK sights do not have the capacity to account for anything but range, its not the fault of the gun, its just the way AK sights are.

I advise people who purchase this gun that the flash hider/ compensator is rather permanent. DO NOT TRY TO REMOVE IT YOURSELF! This will cause the front end to become wobbly and less accurate. For people wanting to put something else there, tell ASGI to remove the flash hider AND the 22mm thread, then to screw them both back on to meet legality requirements. G&G has put nearly indestructible glue on the 22mm thread that holds the compensator on and in the space that holds the 22mm thread onto the 14mm standard thread.

Other than this one small problem this gun is flawless, if you are looking for an AK AEG with great baseline performance, excellent upgrade and accessory potential, this is your gun.

Everything but the "permanently glued" muzzle compensator

Compensator is permanently glued on unless you know how to remove it safely without damaging or loosening the barrel or the front sight.

Product Information:
From what I've been told, this is a great gun. AGI got it to me in one piece and very well packed. Was able to fire about 20-30 shots in semi auto before a nasty grinding noise and no bb's were coming out. Upon stripping the gun down and taking the mechbox apart I found that the sector gear on the lower half (most teeth) had 2/3 missing teeth. Upon further inspection in the mechbox I found the teeth, they had cut CLEAN off the sector gear itself. Not stripped or milled down but cut clean off.

Now whether I just happened to get a lemon remains to be seen. Cannot do warranty due to stripping the gun down and would not do it anyway due to the fact that it's just this one gear. More than likely the gear itself was defective or G&G failed to shim properly (some mention that you should pop the box, reshim as necessary as well as grease it up).

All in all I am sure this is a great gun once I fix the broken parts, although it looks like G*G might not have worked out all the bugs in their quality assurance dept. For the new people I'd suggest sending it back to AGI for Warranty or paying a dealer to work on it if it breaks as the Mechbox is a fairly tricky beast to deal with, (Keep track of those small parts!)

Great looking gun
Feels almost as heavy as my real AK47 without the 40rnd magazine in it
Good balance with a battery in it
Stock is fairly large, will fit a 9.6v 4200MaH battery from ShortyUSA but tightly (crimps wires)

Sector gear teeth were cut clean off, looks to be a defect in the gear
For RMA/Warranty, requires to send ENTIRE gun back.
Piston teeth also look chewed up which disappoints me as G&G is supposed to have great internals
Removing the compensator seems to be impossible without tapping out the pins that holds the whole Front sight block on.

i just what to say that this is still a great gun but whatever u do, do not buy bbs from big 5, sports authorty because it will jam your gun, also the bb unjamer under the gun u cant take it out unless u lived in another country other than the usa because the orange tip is glued on. but its probaly the best ak out there and its for a good price

This gun is extremely solid. I got the 400FPS upgrade package on it and got a red dot scope for it. Upon looking it over the first night I got it I noticed the stock was cracked most likely due to a manufacturing problem so I took a pic, sent it off to GI and not 10 minutes after I sent the email GI got back to me and said they'll be sending a good one out to me. As of today the new stock is on it and its back to being solid. My first scrimmage with the gun went well, have to get used to the red dot being further away from your eyes. I used crappy BB's during the game due to not having any good ones in stock and it never jammed or misfired so the 600 rnd mag did its job.

Solid. Solid. Solid.
metal construction
super snug fit for the magazine
Ergonomic grip (loved my CA mp5 grip)
easy to strip down
no misfiring and excellent response from the gearbox
hopup is extremely sensitive but it does not move

if you dont want to lug it around all day get a sling.. the gun gets heavier
the stock was cracked right off the bat, hopefully the new one has a better life cycle
if you want milsim you will have to paint the flash hider
bottom rail on hand guard can be uncomfortable, wear gloves or get a vert. grip

Conclusion: Teammates fear my EVO.
