The Long Waited PKM is now finally available for the Airsoft market! The PK Machine Gun is the successor to the popular RPD Light Machine Gun. This general purpose machine gun is chambered for the 7.62x54mmR round, the same round used in the SVD Sniper Rifle.
The PKM is the modernized, improved version that was adopted into service in 1969 and is still in use today worldwide. The PK variant is one of the most used SAW machine guns in the world, with over a million units produced.
It is extremely rare to find Russian style machine guns in the Airsoft world, especially one as high quality as the Matrix PKM. This gun features a stamped steel receiver, full metal barrel assembly, and high quality polymer stock (like the real thing). This is by far the best reproduction of the PKM Machine Gun to date!Features:Full Metal ConstructionFolding Steel BipodSteel Auto Winding Box MagazineIntegrated Carry Assist HandlePolymer Stock and Motor GripFull Metal Gearbox and Internal PartsLength:

"For something worth 600 bucks, it should not have any problems out of box. When i got mine, it worked for about half an hour before it stopped firing. after looking it over, something came loose inside the gun. if anyone else has the same problem of the box loading BBs, but not making any noise of firing at all, then likely the red wire that you see inside the pkm is loose. after flipping open the top. you would see at the back, behind the silver colored receiver, a red wire. all that you would need to do is pull open the receiver and put the wire back in place, securing it (maybe with electrical tape). I would rate it more, as everything else about the gun seems solid, but still for $600 it should not come with any problems. (would rate 5/5 if not for the malfunction)
"The gun it's self is very sturdy and very well made, I've yet to have any problems with the gun out of the box. Unfortunately the standard orange plastic tip during shipping and the nice people here at Evike were kind enough to send me a replacement one.
"Great platform for upgrades with absolutely rock solid externals. Abysmal internals and performance out of the box.
Straight out of the box it was shooting about 350fps with a .2 at around 14rps on a 15c 11.1v.
Box mag came partially broken, the three way switch was broken. After rewiring, the stock motor could barely keep up with the blistering 14rps.
After installing an shs piston, piston head, cylinder head, nozzle, asg 30k motor, r hopping the stock barrel and flat hopping the stock bucking, as well as installing a new motor in the box mag, bypassing the MOSFET and fuse, and installing deans plugs. It now reliably shoots 490 fps with the same spring and stock gears at about 22 rps and shoots like an absolute laser. Put about 20k rounds through it over the last few weeks and it is still going strong.
If you plan on upgrading it, as you should, the gears and barrel are very good. Compression parts, motors and wiring need to go. If you aren't tech savvy or plan on leaving it stock. You can find better lmgs for your money.
3 stars because it is really only a pretty face out of the box. But it can easily be turned into a 5 star gun with a few simple upgrades.
