"4 stars. (purchased 07/15/2016)
The machine looks very very authentic!
Internal parts in many respects replicate real AK-74U parts.
Most external parts easily can be replaced from real AK-74U.
For-end made from real wood, but has significant backlash that is not nice, but as i know real AK has this also, maybe even worse. Can be easily fixed if you put some piece of carton between barrel and for-end. Other parts (barrel, mag, butt) are solid, without any backlash. Housing color is slightly different from the ones in the pictures, it's darker, but looks cool.
Magazine doesn't leak so far. Need to get used to load this mags, with some experience become easy.

Most disappointing thing is that gun came without any flash hider. No black flash hider as on the pictures. But even no orange flash hider in the box!!! Evike put some kind of orange lead on the thread where it should be flash hider. Exposed brass barrel looks not nice this way. Most funny that they put it on some kind of crazy glue! So prepare wrenches and pliers if you wanna take this ugly thing off.
At least they should notes it clearly. This misunderstanding put me to another two weeks wait for delivery this parts. So if you wanna make it looks presentable you should buy 22mm (not 14mm) flash hider with this item.

P.S.
I think I quit to buy things from Evike until they use horrible UPS delivery services. Twice I had to wait almost two weeks with delays to ship my GHK AK and parts from CA to NY. Whereas UPS deliver only on weekdays before 6PM and UPS offices works when all normal people are working, but they don't drop packages without signature even at privat houses, it was almost impossible for me to get this two packages.

Webmaster: Sorry to hear about your experience. Going over your your order history, I see that you have ordered this package on 7/15 and it had arrived on 7/22. With the shipping speed of 2-6 business days on ups ground, this is within time frame. For faster shipping in the future, I would advise UPS 3 day or 2 day. Depending on your order total, you could apply a free3day coupon code also. Also if you sign up for UPSMyChoice you can change the terms of delivery, hold at their distribution center, and other options that could help you have a more positive delivery experience.

"The coveted GHK AK series, what a joy you are. With your insane full moving bolt, satisfying recoil, and great weight. You are a joy to use and amazingly accurate. Your magazines are the biggest gripe. Hard as nails to load, and some what difficult to put into the rifle in dire times. Other than that you are fantastic and worth every penny.
PROS
Great weight
Nice accuracy
Decent FPS
ALL METAL
Its a krinkov who doesn't love a krinkov
CONS
The price
The fact that its out of stock
Pricey, oh sweet lord pricey
Mags suck in design in all honesty. Hard to load and put into the rifle when needed even when standing still
Can be heavy for some people, just get a sling for it to take that weight off your arms!

Over all great gun, the best AKs come from GHK. If you don't mind the price buy one of the AKs GHK offer!
If you want to get nice deals on out of stock things or discontinued things check reddit! I don't want to take profit or sales away from evike or any other airsoft retailer but since the AK74u is out of stock check out any of the for sale sites, r/airsoftmarket, or craigslist

"I purchased the GHK AKS-74 U a few months ago. When it arrived, I was very pleased with the quality of this product. GHK builds a very solid, quality product. This airsoft replica has been well used. It continues to perform well.

"Wow what a disappointment. The gun did not work out of the box and had to send it back to Evike. I am glad Evike took it back and hope they get it working.

Breakdown:

Fit and finish: Overall amazing. Looks and feels like the real thing. In fact you would be hard pressed to distinguish from the real thing without examining it closely.

It does not have the "worn" metal look and has a new finish.

The wood looks exactly like in the picture and is quite nice.

It comes with a orange barrel nut over the barrel, but also has a black steel flashider that is not orange. You have to remove the orange "nut" to put the flashider on, so it does not have an orange tip when assembled.

The mags are horrible. The one it came with could not be filled and leaked all the green gas immediately. I ordered a CO2 one and it did the same thing and the CO2 cartridge got stuck inside. Also it is impossible to load bb's in the mag because the feed lips are too tight.

Given the price I am not happy, because I thought I was getting a top of the line gun.

So the realism in appearance is great, but performance out of the box was horrible. I don't know if I got a dud, or this product is defective.

I am glad Evike took it back and I hope they can repair it, or give me a replacement that works.

Customer service good. Product bad. Hopefully, I can change this review later.

"The GHK AKS74U is very solid.

The handguards do not have any play. The stock is stiff and does not wiggle when you fold it. I'm sure it'll wear out over time, but it is very solid. The dust cover locks into place...again with zero play. The only thing that will make a noise would be the plastic recoil buffer in the gun as it fits loosely. My airsoft gun came with the steel muzzle. The edges are super sharp...so sharp that I actually cut myself accidentally with it so I took a file to take the bite out of the pointy edges.. The muzzle does move some. If it bothers you, you can always wrap some teflon tape around the threads.

There's a few things about the gun that need tweaking:

1). The hop units lip prevents smooth chambering of bbs into the hop/barrel assembly.
2) The hop bucking needs to be tapered corresponding the mod to the hop unit.
3) The magazine's bb feed lip needs to be opened up some via a circular file/dremel
4) There are high points on the steel parts that's abrasive to the alloy (not steel) bolt carrier. This results in metal shavings. Those high points need to be sanded down/tapered off for smoother function.and reduced wear and tear.

Use caution when doing these mods..

Loading magazines is a pain unless you modify the feed lips. You can load up to 48 rounds per magazine.

The gun functions fine out of the box though proper mods will bring the best out of the gun. With that said, tuning the gun without adding anything will get you an excellent weapon both for cqb and outdoor play. The gun reaches out past 150 feet easily, shoots accurate and consistent.

"This gun is stunning!!

- metal parts and wood parts look great and not cheap
- good performance from about 10 to maybe 30 meters maximum but it is a short range rifle anyways
- nice and heavy
- many possibillitie to make it look tacticool or to make it more personal
- like the AK series more than e.g. the M4 series because they always look a bit more personal when you put some TLC in it, M4s always look cool and functional

defenitely worth the price though I haven´t played with it much because it is a bit difficult to use. using it as a backup gun or a exposition gun
