"First off, this gun is well-built. I've heard a lot of good things about newer CYMA guns and components, and this one doesn't disappoint. It's got a stamped steel body and stock that is very hefty where it counts. You could literally run over this thing with a car and it'd likely still be intact. Stock and barrel are also steel, but the rail system and removable metal pieces like the sights look like pot metal, albeit decent pot metal, Handgaurd, and handgrip are good quality plastic. Mine came with some barrel wobble, which can be fixed by tightening an allen key. Handgaurd was also pretty loose. I stuffed some foam in with it to tighten it up. The stock is also quite loose. Applying a few layers of tape or maybe some JB weld where the front of the stock meets the body of the gun should tighten it up.
The internals are also pretty good. You'll get a lot of life out of this gun if you don't want to touch the internals. I can't say how things were before I re-shimmed the gearbox, but after, it sounds very good when firing. Cylinder seal wasn't very good though - the compression was very bad. The motor most likely uses neo magnets, as the magnets are several times stronger than the cheap ferrite magnet motors I have in my other guns. Rate of fire on a 7.4 V lipo is about what you'd expect. Not amazing but also not super slow. I think about 11-13 rps. Lastly, the accuracy is also ok. Not amazing but not terrible. Probably can hit a target accurately at 150 ft or so. But if you can, you should flat-hop or R-hop it. This is where things get less nice. The barrel is pretty good and the hop-up is pretty good, but getting the barrel out requires a complete disassembly of the outer barrel. That is, you must remove the front sight, the front sling mount/handgaurd bracket, the handgaurd, the rail system, the rear sight, and the outer barrel. To top it off, there is a plastic piece that holds the hop-up against the gearbox that must be removed along with two screws holding the hop-up onto another plastic piece. By comparison, removing the gearbox is much easier...
All in all, for the price, 5/5. Get it (or another CYMA AK) if you're on a budget and want a solid gun or one that you plan on turning into a powerhouse.
"first of all, BUY THIS GUN! Chronoed it right outta the box it shot 393 full auto 398 single shot. I love this gun. Bought a couple CYMA standard ak mags and they seem to feed just fine. The distance and accuracy are pretty solid. I was shooting a garbage can at about 150 ft and hitting its pretty consistently. The hop up is super easy to work with as well, dont have to take off gloves to adjust. I use a 11.1 lipo battery and have to take care putting the battery in, its pretty tight but it works great. I love this gun. Ive been playing airsoft for a long time and spent 300$ on m4 builds that promised great rates of fire, fps, and range but they all let me down after a couple uses. This thing is a beast right out of the box. I would buy this and any other cyma ak and for 150 bucks you cant beat the price. CYMA makes cheaper guns as well and im sure theyre just as good as this one. Overall im really happy with this buy. 5/5 stars.
"Let's start off by saying this gun is amazing. The new generation of CYMA AK's have finally came. I might have been really lucky, or CYMA has stepped up their game by a lot! The gearbox is shimmed quite well, hardly any wobble (Only wobble came from the skeleton stock but that is normal and can easily be solved with one piece of electrical tape). The range is quite good and shoots around 150~165 feet with a .25 and 175ft with a .32. I paired mine up with a foam insulated suppressor and it does dampen the sound more than I expected and shoots quite silent. Recommend a regular stick 9.6v NiMh battery with this. The gun will accept MOST magazines I find that the CYMA AK74 style midcaps work superbly in this, and metal 47 banana mags make this gun look even more unique and "rebel" like. (maybe just me)
rail on front gas channel
A lot of possible customization
Range is good out of the box
Good FPS ~360 with .32 and ~380 with .25
VERY VERY VERY minor stock wobble, again easily fixed with one small piece of electrical tape
Wish it had a full folding synthetic stock.
Wish I had another one
In the end 5/5 stars.
