"I received this beautiful work of art today!! Sure the stock internals are going to need an overhaul, but the externals at of extreme quality IMO. It was what I expected and more. I did not read of the side rail mount, so it was quite a surprise to see it attached when plinking with the gun. The markings from Echo1 are reflective but not too flashy, and they are also not intrusive. I purchased 4 mags along with this rifle, two Matrix Full Metal 600rd HiCap AK style mags and two Matrix Super 900rd Bakelite style mags for RPK/AK. The two Matrix Full Metal 600rd HiCap AK style mags DO NOT WORK!!! I repeat, they DO NOT function with the magwell of this AKM. The top lips are too thick, and if you fully seal the magazine, it will become stuck as the mag release levers flat against the back ridge of the mag, however, the Bakelite mags work perfectly. I haven't shot this stock as of yet, but plan too soon. So far I am visually impressed with this weapon. I suggest to anyone looking for an elegant, old-fashioned AKM for a little over $200. You can always upgrade to the max so for me, I don't have a reason to score the gearbox and motor, since I plan to enhance it from the start. THANKS EVIKE!!!!!!!!! "This gun is amazing! I couldn't be happier with the purchase of this gun. It is full metal and real wood (As the description states) and the only plastic parts are the flash hider and the pistol grip. I will be replacing the pistol grip on mine because it is feels like cheap plastic and I don't like the way it feels. I wanted to do a review of this gun after I fielded it. This gun shoots really hard! I made adults scream when i shot them. It shoots really far!! I shot someone at about 175 to 200 feet with no problem. I prefer to use .25 and it is pretty accurate with those. I was able to fit a 9.6v nunchuck battery in the stock but it was a tight fit. The rate of fire is decent with no upgrades. This gun is a lot of fun to use.
Pros: full metal
Was able to fit my 9.6v nunchuck in it
Shoots really far
Cons:the pistol grip is alittle wobbly but it's no big deal because I will replace it
The pistol grip seems cheap but again it's not a big deal.
Overall this gun is great and I recommend it to anybody that is looking for a good and reliable ak. "I got this gun last week and it is amazing. But I am more a M4 type guy. It can easily hit a target at 150 with 25 gram bbs. Not a good CQB weapon though cause it is pretty long.
Over all VERY GOOD!! "Ok this is a kind of gun were If I had a decision to buy anouther gun this would be it! This gun is the best gun I have ever owned! Awesome performence at every point. Ive hade the gun for 3 years now and no problems what so ever. I installed a Matrix Magnum motor, and its one of the best. Also I advise you to buy a side mount(evike has them) and a red dot ect. Also this gun right out of the box worked awesome no problems what so ever.
Full metal/ wood
great feel to it.
the hop up lever broke off but its from me playing with the bolt to much :P
Fire selector comes loose after a while (easy fix)
Wont fit and stick types unless you mod it
rear iron sight wobbles, and my front sight broke off but only because I hit a tree lol
Other than that I believe this is one of the best guns Echo1 made currently BUY IT! "I have had this gun for about 4 months now and had no problems,this is by far the best gun I have owned. This gun shoots about 420 fps with .20 bbs and hit a target far beyond 120 ft with .25 bbs! There has been no wobble of anything accept the pistol grip, which is expected.
extremely accurate to over 100 ft
polished real wood
hard to get off flashider( not a big prob though)
barrel scraches easy(again not a big problem)
Overall this an amaizing gun that is worthy for every airsofter! "this by far is the best gun out of all of them. It is cheap hard hitting and the best out of my friends guns only had to change the fuse once
real wood and metal
like 425 fps
very good range
rate of fire
annoying at times with removing the battery
selector switch comes loose now and then easy fix though
nothing else good job Echo 1 "I have had this gun for about 2 years and its still working like i just got it. most reviews you read are aout 2 weeks after they got the gun, not alot are long term, meaning they dont write the problems to come. the only bad thing that ever happend to me using the gun is after a 1 and a half years of use, the wooden stock snapped of and is a pain to get a new one from echo 1 since they do not ship to california. Little problems encountered were the bucking and wobble in the rear sight and top handuard. The rear sight can be fixed if you have some shims laying around, works perfect. All in all great gun for beginers and intermediate players, and a great gun to upgrade for advance players. I got mine up to 25 round a sec and 380 fps. It also just looks like a beast!!!!( this gun is NOT a mauri clone, mauri handuards will not fit)
-real wood and full metal
-comes with a battery(8.4 1200 mah i recomend getting a 9.6 1600)
- lasts a long time
-wood cracks over time
-rear sight and upper handguard wobble( rear sight can be fixed with some shims)
-echo 1 version 3 gearbox wont fit some upgrades( i had a systema 1000 cylinder head, it didnt fit)
conlcusion: Great gun for all players!!! you will have the other team running for cover!!!!!!!! "I bought this gun about a little more than a year ago, and its an amazing gun! I also got a side rail mount for it and a matrix red dot.
full metal and wood
hop up lever is right next to the bolt and when you pull it back it catches on it once in a while.
and everybody giving a bad name
price "This gun is amazing The range is 200 ft i had a small war and i hitting people at 200 feet or more consistently The real wood and steel (what i think is steel ) adds to the realism . I have a 9.6 butterfly that fits well in the stock but the battery it comes with works fine too. the only plastic parts is the pistol grip witch has a little wobble but thats it pros range real wood accurate very solid cons plastic pistol grip that has a little wobble this is sorta a pro and a con high fps around 410 420 i used my moms name by the way "I've had this gun for 3 months now and used it in about 6 wars.
Rate of fire is good for a non lipo battery
look and feel when your using it
Battery id buy another probally a 9.6v
Wobbles in upperhand gaurd rear sight and upper receiver
Not really accurate but it goes about where you shoot
None of these are anything bad just kind of annoying
Dont let the cons stop you from buying this gun its the best ive seen for a good price "I recently purchased this AK and I have to be honest with you, its AMAZING!
The wood is flawless and solid, No wobble whatsoever. It is identical to a real AK in size, weight and construction. The only plastic part was the flashhider (obviously) and the pistol grip.
Shoots like a champ, It actually hurts to get shot by it.
Accurate as can be for this type of gun.
Put a lipo in it and its a beast
Plastic pistol grip (can be replaced)
Heavy (if your a pansy)
Battery is no good, buy a better one "This is hands down my new favorite gun. Very solid construction, realistic wood furniture(its laminated wood just like the real Ak). The body doesn't feel cheap. I don't think it's pot metal, steel most likely. its very durable and has a nice matte finish. The gearbox is very smooth firing and performs well on the 8.4v 1200maH battery it comes with(I'd recommend a new battery but keep it small, the stock doesn't fit my 1.2v 1500mah battery). Fires at what it says in the description about 400-410fps. Pretty nice range with the hop-up tuned right. The mag it comes with is a 600rd high cap, it holds ALOT of ammo.
I installed a matrix 455mm 6.03mm tighbore barrel in it. Not so easy procedure. Had to do quite a bit of tinkering with the hop-up and such. Long story short if you don't know what your doing don't continue until you're sure how to do it. After I installed it though I noticed it did increase the range and accuracy a good deal. I would recommend a tightbore but maybe a brand other than matrix it was a tight fit.
Overall a great Ak-47 for those who are fans of the Ak series. It's kinda funny evike calls it an Ak-74... Displaying
