"Had this gun for a long time, eventually sold it. Does what it preaches and shoots the fps its rated at. However, the only setback for this gun, is the gears. The gears WILL fail on you after about 10,000 rounds. I have watched a video on youtube about the same issue for a guy doing a review and lo and behold it happened to me. I highly recommend upgrading your gears. Especially if you're upgrading the spring. Otherwise this is a great gun and very durable. Real heavy too, about 8-9 pounds, it will weigh down a bit as you play longer into the day. For cqb, weaker players, or faster pace players this is not what you want look for "I recently bought this gun and have run it in a few skirmishes as well as a longer op, so here goes.
This is one solid AEG for sure. Body and outer barrel are metal, and the internals are pretty solid overall. The included battery and charger are crap, so do yourself a favor and get a new one. Personally I've got a 9.6 nunchuck battery that works, and when you remove the foam insert in the stock it will fit with a bit of finangling.
So far I've only run into a few problems, all pretty minor.
First issue I had as the wiring in the stock is pretty stiff. If you bend the wiring too far the casing will split, exposing the copper. It's a pretty easy fix with either some electrical tape to wrap it, or using a bit of the liquid electrical tape you can find at Home Depot for about 5 bucks for a good sized bottle of the stuff.
Second issue is the weight. This is a HEAVY AEG. I own a WASR-10/63 and this is heavier than that (haven't weighed them, so it's just based on my feeling about it), even fully loaded up with ammo and optics. I use a one-point sling to carry this, and it digs in after a while. Once I get a vest I can hook into, the weight distribution will probably be better.
Third issue is that MAG midcaps (in particular the Bakelite/Brown mags) do not like to feed in this AEG. Looking at the feed lip on the included magazines vs. the MAG brand midcaps, I can see the stock ones have a small bump on the feed lip, and that may be it, then again it could always be me overloading the magazines and then double feeds causing the magazine to jam, so take this for what it's worth.
Fourth issue is the front sight post is not very adjustable. It might just be mine, but a few other people I've met with this same AK say that it apparently isn't meant to be adjusted. I've tried the included adjustment tool, as well as my real-steel tool, and neither want to work.
Overall, I would recommend this AEG for anyone who likes AKs. The one I own does not come with a side-rail mount, so to mount optics you'll need a Beryl-style mount, or a railed foregrip to mount optics.
Full metal receiver/barrel
Real wood stock/foregrip/pistol grip
Solid FPS (Chronos around 375 with .23 bio-d bbs)
Can fit a 9.6 nun-chuck
Blowback function is pretty cool
Heavy. If you have a good sling rig, this probably won't be as bad.
It seems like some aftermarket mags don't like to feed
The finish on the wood is really bright, and rubs off pretty easily
The Kalashnikov trade rubs off pretty easily
Blowback function may make it a bit more difficult to get to the GB and replace hop-up/inner barrel. "Got this gun for Christmas and this gun is amazing! The feel of the real wood in your hands is amazing! the blow-back gives a slight recoil. The 600 round high capacity mag works great, no mis-feeds no problems at all. Now for the pros and cons:
small battery compartment
not very upgradeable externally
selector switch is very tight ( might just be my gun)
stock battery isn't very good ( I suggest getting a 9.6 small type)
trademarks wear off
so far this gun hasn't broken or jammed once, I highly suggest this gun to any airsofter looking for a nice AK-47 to own.
PS: The first one I got jammed and I had to send It back. it seems to working fine now. Read More Reviews Write a Review
