The Long Waited PKM is now finally available for the Airsoft market! The PK Machine Gun is the successor to the popular RPD Light Machine Gun. This general purpose machine gun is chambered for the 7.62x54mmR round, the same round used in the SVD Sniper Rifle.
The PKM is the modernized, improved version that was adopted into service in 1969 and is still in use today worldwide. The PK variant is one of the most used SAW machine guns in the world, with over a million units produced.
It is extremely rare to find Russian style machine guns in the Airsoft world, especially one as high quality as the Matrix PKM. This gun features a stamped steel receiver, full metal barrel assembly, and high quality polymer stock (like the real thing). This is by far the best reproduction of the PKM Machine Gun to date!Features:Full Metal ConstructionFolding Steel BipodSteel Auto Winding Box MagazineIntegrated Carry Assist HandlePolymer Stock and Motor GripFull Metal Gearbox and Internal PartsLength:

"The Echo1 PKM is a comrade-friendly bullet hose.
+Amazing capacity. 5,000 rounds is about twice what you'll get in other support guns.
+Good build quality. Apart from one tiny c-clip, the PKM is sturdy and can handle the noobiest of beatdowns. I first used it at an OP and was smacking it all over the building I was holding.
+Comfortable to use in a deployed position. The shoulder loop and bipod make for a comfy kill box.
+Very usable hop-up. Adjusting hop on the fly is not super streamlined, but the hop-up is very easy to adjust to the situation.
+Great range. The PKM's barrel is very long and combined with the hop-up, you can get some mega range.
+ROF adjustment is very easy to do on the fly, although I would advise for you to disable it. The PKM adjusts the ROF by simply increasing resistance in the wiring, which can leave it prone to earlier failures. Still a nifty feature.
+Crisp trigger response out of the box.
+Fair battery consumption. You'll average about 1 magazine per battery on the highest ROF setting laying on the trigger the whole time, which is miles better than the M249 I used to use.
+Carry handle is a blessing from the gods. The gun is heavy and the handle is sturdy to compliment it.
+Removable outer and inner barrel makes for easy barrel swaps and cleaning.
-A bit heavy clocking in at around 17lbs unloaded. Personally, I see this as a pro since I like the heft, but it can definitely wear away at your endurance for a long game.
-No rear sling mount. You'll have to get a special sling or jerry-rig a mount yourself.
-Plastic furniture is very prone to scratching and gouging, There's a nice little scratch on my stock when I dropped a pocket knife on it by accident.
-No handguard makes for a strange shouldering stance. It feels pretty unnatural and you can accidentally hit the ROF adjustment switch when you hold it like a normal rifle. You CAN buy a railed handguard, but this is upwards of $90.
-Can be a little tricky to get it to feed the first time owing to the way the magazine is set up, but just watch the feed tube and line it up right and you'll be in business.
Overall, the PKM is a really nice and sturdy support weapon that has the possibility of building your traps and forearms to the size of phone poles. Whether you want it to embrace your comrade side or just as a unicorn, go ahead and pick one up if you're thinking about it. Pick one up and bench press with it.
"I bot this gun I got this gun I shot this gun I love this gun if you get this gun you will too.
"I was excited about this gun because i like the look and it had great reviews but the gun broke the 1st time I used it. Ran great for about an hour of light use using the recommended 9.6v battery then all the sudden it it just stopped feeding and sounded like it had a dead battery. Tried a few different batteries and even one with a higher voltage but nothing works. By the time I got this out to a field to use it it was already past the warrenty date so I can't even return it. Maybe I just got unlucky and got a bad gun but I can not recommend a gun that brakes the 1st time it's used.
