"The CYMA/Echo 1 RPK is a pretty good RPK replica, but it does have some drawbacks.
+The RPK is of very good heft and has some good build quality.
+I was sent an Echo 1 instead of a CYMA as part of evike's thing.
+The included magazine works and feeds very well (even though it's a tactical traffic cone color)
+Real wood furniture is very comfortable and sturdy.
+The bipod moves very freely with the replica and is easy to deploy. Very sturdy, too.
+Accepts many aftermarket AK74/AK47 parts and magazines.
+Built well in the receiver area. I actually fell on the gun and it only hurt the magazine.
+Very good range right out of the box.
+Makes you feel like a professional Russian.
-Build is not so great in some areas. The iron sights and sling mount are made of cheap pot metal and break way too easily,
-The inner barrel does not extend all the way in the outer barrel. You can really capitalize on the RPK's range by getting a longer barrel.
-The included magazine barely clears the space needed to deploy the bipod. AK47-styled magazines work better for this purpose than AK74 style.
-VFC-styled receiver makes it a bit more difficult to access the gearbox compared to a TM style. It is more sturdy, though.
-Battery space is a little weird to get used to since the wires are a little longer than they need to be.
Overall a very good rifle, but be wary of pot metal poo-poo. "I have had this for a year now, heavily upgraded.
Lets start with the cons
Front sight block broke off, though a pro is now the bi pod turns more easily and can aim better. (looks unrealistic though!)
Rear windage doesn't work too well so I took it off as it fell off a few times in games.
Matrix magazine jammed in the gun felt like I was going to break my mag well but cyma is tough and it didn't damage the gun.
Gun shoots full auto and single auto in the same selector section now (taken the gear box apart a dozen times for upgrades, not sure how to fix it, selector switch is loose.) One minute you are firing full auto, next it's semi, one minute you are full auto, next its full auto in semi selector spot.
Shoots too hot out of the box for most fields and cqb(410fps) Buy a m110 or m100.
heavily upgraded, now shooting at 225+ft, this thing is like a sniper rifle.
prommy barrel 509, lonex internals, shs piston, stock motor and gears. Lonex hop up.
If you want a sniper rifle buy this gun over a sniper rifle.
4/5 "This is my review of the CYMA CM052 RPK.
The gun just looks incredible. The finish on the wood is very nice also; it looks worn and distressed, which adds to the rugged rpk look. The gun is nicely balanced, with a very nice heft. Also, for all my fellow 125 pounders out there, in the realm of support weapons, this is probably the lightest and most maneuverable. A great choice for those of us who can't lug a m60 around all day. When the gun description says it is full metal, it's not kidding around. The only plastic parts I found was the motor grip and the orange tip. I dare you to find something else that is plastic. The metal that makes up the gun is not pot metal; it feels good under the hand and will not break anytime soon.
Functionality(how things work)
Many reviews complain about their iron sights falling off. Either they were going for the sights with a hacksaw, or they used their rpk as a garden rake. Let me tell you, unless you are stupid, the sights are not gonna fall off. They are metal and well secured to the gun. The front sight is adjustable for elevation, and the rear sight is adjustable for elevation and windage. Also, many reviewers complain about the bipod. Sure, it is a little wobbly, but it is good quality metal and it does its job. The receiver is similar to that of a ak47, but it is beefier. It comes with a scope mounting point, and the bolt moves all the way back, exposing the hop up. Moving back, we come to the stock. The real wood stock is hollow, for battery storage. There is no stock wobble at all. The butt plate is affixed to the stock via two screws. You have to unscrew the butt plate to access the battery compartment.
When I shot this gun, the temperature was around 70 degrees, there was a slight breeze. I shot Evike.com 0.25g Japanese-spec bbs with a freshly charged 9.6v 1600ma Tenergy battery. After fiddling with the hop-up, I set up the bipod and started shooting. I shot at a target right around 130-140 feet. Each bb shot straight to target, there were no flyers. Whatever I shot at I hit. There was no need to adjust after each shot or burst. 140 feet was definitely not the max range, with my (unmodified) rpk I would feel confident engaging someone at 170-180 feet, especially with a heavier bb. In automatic firing, the rpk was slightly inaccurate, but that just makes it easier to suppress cover. The semi-automatic mode however, was dead on accurate.
Very nice stock metal hop-up
Great fire selector
Very nice iron sights
Lightweight(but feels solid)
Scope Mounting point
Veerryyy small battery space.
Inaccurate on automatic mode(its a pro for me)
Bipod is a little wobbly
