The AKS-74U is a compact version of the AKS-74 (U—Russian: Ukorochenniy, or shortened) and was developed in the late 1970s. The AKS-74U was intended for use as a personal defense weapon for vehicle crews, airborne infantry, and special operations forces. Each demanded a short, but relatively powerful automatic weapon. Although the AKS-74U had the size and maneuverability of a typical submachine gun, its biggest draw was that it fired the Russian 5.45x39 rifle cartridge. Firing an intermediate rifle cartridge allowed the AKS-74U to pack more firepower than a regular submachine gun, which usually fired weaker pistol caliber rounds. It also shared components with the general issue AK-74, making it convenient for soldiers to acquire parts when needed.
The KWA AKG-74SU is an exact replication of the AKS-74U and features realistic field-stripping. The firing action of the bolt carrier group has also been faithfully reproduced and includes safe, full, and semi-automatic firing modes.

"I recently purchased this and have yet to skirmish it. About 500 rounds have been fired through it.
The gun chronos at around 340-350 FPS with .2 gram BBs. It has moderate kick and it sounds great.
- CQB-safe FPS
- Very sturdy stock
- Sturdy construction
- Massive gas reservoir
- Good kick
- The gun suffers problems with feeding and sometimes the BBs will lodge themselves in the bolt, causing it to fail. In addition, BBs regularly fail to fire and result in jams inside the barrel.
- The handguard wobbles significantly, making it one of the few areas of the gun that I am concerned about with regards to durability.
Overall, this gun functions well enough to be skirmished provided you have enough magazines, but it does suffer from some mechanical unreliability. I will see if I can get it checked by a technician to remedy the issues I'm having.
"I expected an awful GBB AK from KWA which is pretty rare but i knew that GBB AKs are hard to make but when i unboxed the AKG74U from the box i had a feeling that its a flawless work and i was RIGHT!
280 FPS 0.20g fresh stock out of the box its good because u can use it in any CQB field without lowering the FPS (might be a con for some people)
Sounds Like a beast ak, mags are heavy and realistic
No wobbling except for the handguard (can be fixed easily or replaced)
Didnt discover any cons YET!
