"Coming back to my other review, this gun has given me a lot of problems, with barely 2000 rounds on it. The selector switch somehow caused the gun to lock up, there have been a lot of electrical problems. My gun shoots to the right so I was thinking of putting a barrel extension on it to make it more accurate. But when I took the flash hider off, the threads are broken! I am planning to put an APS RT-S Muzzle Mock Suppressor / Flash Hider - 14mm Negative on it, but I guess im going to have to superglue or threadlock it on tight
not going to re-review it again but here are some more cons on my model:
front sight is off
shoots way to the right
broken threads on the end of the outer barrel
selector switch problems (making the gun not fire at all)
This gun is love at first sight, but after barely even 2000 rounds on it, its starting to let me down. "Let me just say for $99.99 BUY THIS GUN! Even if you don't like AK's or AKS's BUY THIS GUN! Let me repeat that... BUY THIS GUN! It's such a good deal especially for the price! I was skeptical because of the softair brand and it only being $99, but this gun is a steal! It fires around 400 FPS and has a good RPS. The accuracy and range are pretty good for a "CQB' weapon. It fires pretty smoothly and internals seem pretty good as far as my small knowledge goes. The matrix AKS RIS system WILL fit this gun for those of you like me that need to attach grips, lasers, lights, etc... It's got good weight to it but not super heavy for being full metal. The real wood is a nice touch, might stain it a darker color just for some uniqueness. The mags feed really well! Hardly had to wind to empty them. The battery is just a basic stick battery. I put an 11.1 lipo stick and it give it a little higher RPS.
400 FPS fires perfect for field games but small like a cqb gun
Very Accurate and has good range
Built very well. Full metal and real wood
Has a good weight to it but not tiresome for long games
Perfect for an infidel pmc look
Mags feed extremely well
No wobble with mags
Handguard wobbles just a bit , same as stock
Battery is a basic but it works well enough
Folding stock isnt long enough for me and folded in is uncomfortable. 'm hoping to be able to change to a fixed stock or just take it off.
The sling mount is only on the right side when stock is out and it's metal and loud
No rails but can be added so no biggie
5/5 This is a MUST BUY! Seriously, buy it just to have it because of how great a deal it is! Don't hesitate because of the price, this thing is by far at least a $200 gun. "Summary: I picked this gun up when it was running $99, which is an absolute STEAL for a full metal - real wood ak. This gun seems to be a CYMA CM035, which is the TM variant of the AKS74u, which means that without the trades (which honestly aren't particularly realistic) this gun would normally run about $150. This package also comes with an extra high-cap, making it an even better deal.
I'm currently running an 11.1v lipo through it in order to break it down faster. This body is actually pretty decent if you're planning to use this gun as an upgrade platform. I've fired about 6k rounds through it so far and nothing has broke. (I did bypass the fuse though)
Full Metal - Primarily brittle Zinc Pot Metal
Real Wood - Not bad, but clearly isn't the best work
Paintjob - Flat matte black paintjob scratches really easily, which after a hours of gaming gave it a pretty cool "worn" OPFOR look.
Selector Switch - Got loose after 2 games, tightened it up and hasn't gotten loose since.
Handguard - A little loose fitting
Rear Sling Swivel - super noisy, metal to metal contact. Be sure to tape it up to silence it
Basic CYMA CM035A Internals, not as good as the 45A series
Has survived over 6k shots of 11.1v after I removed fused.
Included Battery honestly isn't really sufficient
Effective Range: 150 feet flat trajectory w. 25g, which is pretty decent.
For the price I got this at? 10/10, there is no better AK at the "Epic Deals" price of $99. Read More Reviews Write a Review
