"This is an amazing piece of work for such a small package. Only drawback is that this gun does not have blowback as advertised. Still rocks! "Overall a fantastic rifle. The receiver is solidly built and made out of metal, folding stock is also neat and useful. The furniture is rather decent though the wooden handguard could have been better carved another flaw is the upper hand guard is very wobbly. Internals are good for the price from what I can tell. Range and accuracy are great and it carries adequate muzzle velocity for outdoor play, but you won't want to spray someone up close on full auto.
Great range, FPS, and accuracy
Small and maneuverable
Mostly good externals
Wobbly upper handguard
Wood handguard carved cheaply "Not a bad gun at all! Solidly built piece, really is decent steel (as opposed to grade F pot metal). Good for anyone looking for a smaller primary or a beefy loaner rig. Played with it several times now (about 7-8 hours of gameplay) and haven't encountered any issues with operation.
-Solidly built. Pretty beefy piece
-Good FPS right out of the box (consistently chronos low 400s)
-Battery is wired to top under dustcover, with male terminal close to pistol grip. The upper space runs the entire length of the gun (even under the forward handguard), meaning that this gun can take ANY size stick. I use a 9.6v 1600 in it, and there is still plenty of room.
-Looks nice and realistic. Sure, this doesn't impact gameplay much. But i like my replicas to at least look the part, unlike some guns (like the guns with rails mounted to scopes mounted to other rails, you know the ones I mean ;) )
-heavier than it initially looks. Not really a con so much as something to be aware of.
-High FPS and short barrel length means that this gun is a little odd, as it were. The high FPS is prohibitive to CQB play in some areas, while the short barrel means it's not as accurate as counterparts it will generally be run against on open fields.
Great gun, great addition to any AK arsenal, and at a price that definitely makes it a fantastic deal. "I had this gun for about two years now and nothing has broke. The only problem was that the "stain" on the wood grips was more like paint and peeled of easily so I re-did it by sanding the wood down and adding a stain of my choice. It now looks 10 times better and looks more expensive as well. Great gun!!!!!! "This gun is amazing! I used it for a while in CQC and it performed wonderfully, People mistook it for a $300+ gun, and personally I feel the same way. Later on I took it out to a one day event at an outdoor field, didn't really have the range to do that though, if you're doing that kind of thing I would definitely recommend getting a longer barreled AK, they're actually about the same price as this one.
*Short (easy to maneuver)
*good FPS for cqc (~330 FPS)
*real wood and metal!
*came with two magazines
*Doesn't come with a battery or charger
Bottom Line: Fantastic CQC gun "I got this gun about a month ago in a trade and I have to say its actually a really good gun for the price. I traded my Elite force 1911 for this and I don't regret it one bit. Although my ak had some internal upgrades, but not much. I think all they did was shim the gears and add an extended inner barrel. One complaint I have for mine is the front barrel assembly around the flash hider is quite wobbly. Now i'm not sure if this is because I had mine worked on or what but every once in a while my gun will shoot far left because of the barrel wobbling and shifting left. This isn't a big deal to me since this is my backup rifle, but either way i'm not bothered my it at all. One thing that I truly admire about this weapon is the external build quality. With the full metal receivers and the real wood handguards this gun can definatley take some blows. I run a Matrix 9,6 In this gun and my does it have a heck of a ROF. I would say a little bit better than a 7.4 Lipo.
Overall a great gun for beginners or "pro" airsoft players
-Full metal and real wood
-Great for anyone on the field
Non that I have experienced yet "This gun is probably the best gun purchase I have ever made!
Easy to maneuver with
All metal and real wood
I play against people who use 200-300$ guns and this one can beat them in Range, FPS and maneuverability.
The sling mount jingles when you run (not a big problem if you have a sling or just tape it down) "Well, This is my first "REAL'" AEG I'm fairly new to the sport, but I'm catching on easily. me personally am a smaller guy so she feels perfect. its a little hard for me to put a sling on her. but it really doesn't really matter, she's about the same weight as most metal guns. she's got a huge hi-capa 450rd-500rd magazine which is very reliable and the mags are about 12$ anyway. she's got a folding skeleton stock which is awesome for CQB and and a awesome wood grip. and a polymer pistol grip. a full-pressed steel body, barrel, and stock. she has great fps and a beefy metal "clang" when you shoot. one thing that is slightly a CON is the metal sling mount on the stock, slaps the stock a lot during movement which is to be expected. as far as bbs go i recommend .20 or .25 gram bbs. she is extremely realistic and everything about her is spot on. i highly recommend this gun as any field out-door game. also very-good for CQB/ indoor-play. all-in-all a very sexy, very good gun. "For 90 bucks, I got this as a salvage-for-parts/do-weird-things-to-it gun, which is a good thing because the flash hider completely broke off the threaded portion of the barrel during removal.
Unlike CYMA's newer version of this gun, the CM045 (highly recommend btw, stamped steel VFC clone), this CM035 is standard but fairly solid (with exception to above incident) pot metal, just don't abuse it like a real AK and it should be fine. I'm also not a fan of the hollow wood handguard, which is easily the weakest part of the externals.
Again unlike the CM045, this is Marui style, i.e., fake receiver rivets with front assembly attached by 4 screws under the gun. Not good for realism but there are advantages, as it allows for use of the inexpensive AK rail mounts that attach to the two lower-receiver screws and retain iron sights, plus takedown is easier.
I have not cracked open the internals, but early testing has been good. Crisp shots chrono'ing at 400fps. If I weren't stripping it for parts I'd just drop a bucking and tightbore in and shoot it stock until something breaks, which will probably be quite a while.
Overall, for 90 bucks, this is extremely good value. They're probably clearing these out to make way for the 45, but this definitely has its own perks and I'm glad I grabbed one. "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.
Overall: 7/10 "This will be a short but quick review:
HEAVY WEIGHT, it feels realistic and feels just like the real thing.
Battery space is good, unlike my Lancer Tactical, which has very tight battery space
Full metal is always a pro.
Real wood is somewhat of a pro.
Flash hider is not too large and doesn't have a lot of orange on it
Comes with a battery and charger, but buy a smart charger, and the battery isn't too bad either.
It is quite loud, if you shoot inside you might want to consider some ear plugs, as it is quite loud inside, outside your neighbors could definitely hear it (mine sure did).
Not a super con, but the metal on the gun scratches really easily.
The wood is some chinese wood.
Shots go a little bit to the right, and i did not get a front sight adjustment tool.
Overall I would recommend this gun to anyone, pro or noob as it is a good gun for the price. Displaying
