"I'm so glad that I bought this little beast. The body is very sturdy with little to no wobble, Excluding the folding stock, of course.
The trigger has an extremely snappy response with a 7.4 Lipo. And rate fire sounds very respectable.
Cyma brand AK waffle midcaps and Lonex flash mags feed flawlessly as well. Using both Elite Force .25ís and then testing .30ís from madbull, I was quite impressed with the range of this little bugger. While Accuracy could be improved using a tighter bore barrel, it still has a respectable spread of 5-6 feet at 200+ feet. Not bad for such a short barrel.
FPS is a tad high for cqb, running at about 380-392 fps.
I have two cons. Both of which are fixable. This thing comes festooned with stickers galore. And the orange flash hider is somewhat of a chore to remove if you do not wish to damage the metal one underneath.
Over all this is a great deal for a field ready gun. If you are in the market for a decent AK74u, donít hesitate to grab this one.

"I have owned this gun for 7 months I use my CPW with a madbull 300mm 6.03 tightbore barrel, madbull bucking, and a 7.4v stick lipo. It is an incredible value for money. Easy to take apart to add custom barrels and hop-ups. The externals are really really solid. Stock wobbles a little but it's a folding stock so no surprises there. I recommend it to anyone. This is the least expensive AEG I have ever bought and it is my favorite! Fantastically put together and priced. Extremely reliable and durable.

pros
-solid metal externals
-solid metal internals
-very good accuracy and range with 300mm madbull 6.03 tightbore (.25 gram bbs)
-good fire rate with a 7.4 lipo (I like average fire rates burns through less ammo)
-simple to disassemble
-It's a AK74U

cons
-stock wobbles a little (to be expected from a folding stock)
-It doesn't shoot lightning bolts

"I have only been playing airsoft for a few months. I got an M4 (g&g around $200) and this to kind of figure out what platform I want to use most of the time. The reason why the M4 and this is because the availability of parts for both platforms. This gun works great and because of it I am leaning towards the AK style now.

Pros:
FPS
Accurate
EXTREMELY durable
Great package deal (battery [8.4 stick], charger[not smart charger], 2 high cap magazines [that work well], the unjamming rod, and the gun itself)

cons:
It's a little loud when firing.
sling mount on the stock makes a loud ping (can just tape it down though!)

Final Thoughts
This gun is great, and is great for a starter gun. This is a MUST BUY if you are looking for a cheap but good entry level gun (I guess some would say this is intermediate). I would recommend getting a 9.6 battery because that will last longer than the one it comes with and it will shoot a little faster and harder wit the 9.6 (then you have the 8.4 as the spare battery! :-D ). As a final note even with the 8.4 it comes with, I was getting an fps of 400 (.20 bb's). This is important if the field you will be playing in has restrictions for FPS.
