"I am updating my review from a while ago on this gun. After a few unsuccessful attempts to make this gun survive a full 10 minutes of playtime before something going awry, I finally fixed the problems it had. Here's what I did (should anyone have any trouble like I did)
First I looked at the gears (dry as a bone) and replaced them with fresh gears that were greased, swimming them as well. Next, I swapped out the motor witha high torque motor since the stock one was meh.. after I replaced those components I disabled the EBB (electric blowback) since it was finicky and was fairly easy to do.
Had my first game in a long time with the gun yesterday and it not only performed, it excelled! It had almost no issues and it survived the whole day. Hits hard, good power with the high torque motor, even an increased rate of fire with the EBB removed, stronger motor, and lubed gears.
Overall, the stock version has flaws for sure, but it is a great gun if you put in the time to mod it like I did! But as a gun you plan on buying without upgrading....don't even consider it :) "I purchased this with high hopes... they were not met in the slightest...
It arrived with parts/screws missing, parts misplaced, parts not secure, and DoA... "Dissatisfied.
Got this gun back in the fall of 2014 as an intermediate AEG rifle, the only thing that impressed me the most...would be the tactical look and power behind it. I won't lie, this gun is powerful. Shoots around 425 with the strongest spring included (.20g). HOWEVER...I find the unreliability of mine to be outstanding. Granted, I may have just gotten a lemon of a gun, but it still makes me wonder if the 209 itself is just bad. I digress. Before I go into pro/con, keep in mind that it may not accurately reflect on the other AK209's that other people have and that mine may have been just plain bad.
-dual battery capability
-sufficient rail system
-detachable single point sling mount included
-gearbox reliability is finicky (may need to upgrade gears)
-electric blowback tends to get stuck at half-cock
-for some reason my m4 stock tube wanted to rotate freely
-having two batteries connected at the same time may blow a fuse
-hop up is kind of difficult to move if you have bigger fingers (located inside the chamber)
Overall, it was good while it lasted. It fell short of it's true potential and would think twice if you are looking at this gun. Looks are not everything. Read More Reviews Write a Review

APS Advanced AK209 Tactical AK74 Airsoft AEG Electric Blowback Rifle
The AK74, Russia’s answer for a rifle chambered in an intermediate cartridge similar to that of the NATO 5.56x45 cartridge. Developed in 1974 by Mikhail Kalashnikov; the new modernized rifle chambered in the 5.45x39 offered better accuracy and improved reliability over the already successful and very reliable AK47/AKM rifles.
APS brings us an airsoft adaptation of the AK74 rifle with even more modernized features such as an integrated top rail for mounting optics, an M4 style crane stock and buffer tube to allow the operator to adjust the length of pull of the rifle, an improved mag release for faster reloading, and a light weight polymer railed hand guard to attach additional accessories while at the same time cutting down the weight from the traditional wooden hand guards.
The all new APS Silver Edge Gearbox utilizes a unique polishing technique to remove burrs and surface imperfections from the gearbox shell. This polishing leads to an incredibly smooth and even finish that will reduce friction and lower the gearbox load. These improvements lead to a more efficient gearbox that will use less power, generate less wear, and allow for the smoothest cycle possible for enhanced performance as well as greatly extending the life of your gearbox.
The APS ASK209 is equipped with G130 spring resulting a 430 FPS (measured with 0.20g BB) right out of the box. The rifle is equipped with both front and rear wiring for front or rear battery options which is innovative, convenient, and powerful!
