This is not a gun for field or CQB play in a serious setting, obviously. This review is written from the perspective of an extremely casual player whose airsoft experience consists of plinking at cans and small skirmishes in the woods.
In a word, it's adequate. The plastic material is fairly cheap-feeling, but the overall construction of the gun and how it's put together leaves you fairly confident that this gun can survive at least a few drops. The outer barrel is pretty solid metal of some kind, as is the charging handle. The hi-cap magazine is advertised as holding 300 rounds and uses a winding wheel.
There is an adjustable hop-up switch on the exterior of the gun that you will probably make use of during your first few experiences with this gun. At first I noticed the (.20g)BBs curving sharply upwards near the end of their(surprisingly long) range, but some fiddling with the hop-up had me shooting on target.
It's full-scale, which is always nice, and is a fairly convincing replica of the real AK-47(disregarding the whole plastic thing). Cyrillic lettering on the fire selector, (probably kind of)functional range-adjuster for the iron sights... there's a fairly good attention to detail in the construction of this gun.
This gun is a reliable plinker/primary for very casual springer skirmishes. Don't expect Marui quality or anything, but expect a gun that won't fall apart within a month and will put BBs where you need them to be.
4/5, 5 being the PERFECT springer.
