"I will try to give a fair review of the product from the perspective I only paid 116 for it.
The stock, receiver, dust cover and front assembly are all metal. It is composite metal but it is sturdy and will hold up to a pounding. The front handguards are plastic "imitation wood". They look OK but nothing special. There was some wobble in the upper handguard which I easily fixed with a small bit of tape on inside of the handguard. The flash hider is all plastic with the entire flash hider being bright orange.
Takedown of the gun is easier than the old Marui AK47. The receiver is taken down just like a Marui with the 4 screws. The front handguards are taken down by opening the dust cover and sliding the handguards off. This is the improvement over the old Marui AK47 design. Also, the dust cover is attached to the receiver via a hinge. This makes it so the dust cover can be opened without it falling out.
The gun takes stick type batteries but they can be pushed all of the way down into the handguards, which is a great feature. Almost all standard round stick type batteries will fit. Regardless of how long it is. LiPos are trickier to find because they are not always round in dimension. The metal stock is excellent. It snaps into place with no wobble. Cant ask for a better stock.
The hi-cap it comes with is junk. Its thin plastic and feels like it will break if it took a hard knock. The hi-cap will probably find its way to your spare parts bin. It also comes with a garbage wall charger and BBs. Both should go in your trash can. No need to jam your gun or burn your house down by using them.
The gun does not come with battery.
-Stick Batteries extend into handguard for extra battery space
-Zero wobble in the stock
-Solid FPS and ROF out of the box
-Upper handguard wobble was present
-Handuards are just OK looking
-The charger, BBs and Hi-cap that come with the gun should be sent straight to your trash can "this gun is a lemon as soon as i brought it out to the field it broke every other shot would go like 15 feet at most. and it was only shooting at 320 fps after i fixed those problems i took off the flash hider on the gun and the threads on the gun stripped also the metal on the stock is crappy it bent after i put a one point sling on it. but i have to say the battery included is actually pretty good and the rof is not bad i actually really like that feature on it but that doesn't help when its in accurate.
bad hop up
i would suggest spending the extra money for a kwa, e&l, g&g, or an evike custom made gun "This gun was good for about only a few months. Only after 3 months this gun started to misfire and make a clicking noise every time I would pull the trigger and nothing would come out. I tried getting new batteries, cleaning the inner barrel, and opened up the gearbox to diagnose and then fix the problem. Nothing worked. I highly recommend a different gun made by a different company, like Echo1, KWA, King Arms, and some of the other well known Airsoft companies. You don't even need to spend over $150 to get a good AEG. Some good, "budget friendly" guns (meaning well-built guns made by other companies excluding CYMA and DBOYS, which most of their products suck) are G&G CM16, A&K M4, Echo1 Genesis, and even a few Lancer Tactical AEG's, and all of these guns are under $150. There are not even words to describe how mad I was that this gun broke and how POOPY it is. DO NOT BUY THIS GUN. I REPEAT DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF POOP GUN. IF I WERE YOU I WOULD SAVE UP AN EXTRA $20-$40 AND BUY A GOOD AEG. I EVEN RECOMMEND A FREAKIN' MATRIX OR G&P !SHOTGUN! OVER THIS GUN. Read More Reviews Write a Review
