||Here we go for try #3 to post a review...
This is beyond the shadow of a doubt the quintessential AK-47 in all of airsoft. I love this gun, I use it very often, and it has seen several heats in airsoft wars, all without confirmed failures. I place emphasis on "confirmed failures", because I suspect the gun misfeeds occasionally to which I wind up the mag and maybe hit it a couple times and it works just fine.
I use an 11.1 Li-Poly battery in my gun and it does not adversely affect the gun in any way.
The side-rail on the gun is only a rail, and Evike does not sell the one depicted on the gun, but I recommend the UTG quick-detach with the double rail for the most options.
It fires roughly 360 fps on .20g ammo, and 250 fps on .25g ammo. I strongly recommend .20g ammo ONLY unless you put a much stronger spring in the gun. Note that my gun is entirely unmodified except for a replacement gear (my fault) and new lubrication.
-Solid, high-quality metal internals
-Tight bore barrel
-Li-Poly ready, use with disgression as Li-Po is almost too much for it
-REAL WOOD finish!
-Quiet gun, probably the quietest gun I have ever used
-Small-type tamiya battery (my personal preference)
-Side rail unit for mounting optics
-Wood is poorly finished in some spots, insignificant in my opinion
-8.4 volt battery in bonus package barely fits into the butt stock, with forcing. I recommend not buying it unless you want it for another gun
-AK-type iron sights are hard to use with a mask on
-G&G AK series guns DO NOT use other mags. Period. I used CA, TM, the "Holy Cow Special" mags (unknown maker), and several others. None but G&G will even fit into the mag well without force and a grinder, much less feed BBs into the gun
Bottom line: If you want a well-made AK that won't fail you unless you intensionally break it, this is your gun. You will not be disappointed.
