Got this gun a while back and JG has definately improved with thier products. Gun is full steel/wood but the plastic handgrip and huge orange flash hider. BUT it does come with a black metal flash hider which is very easy to attach. To get the flash hider off, just take some kind of a strong stick (in my case, i used a long barrel of a lighter) and stick it through the flash hider and twist it off. One thing I really hate about this gun is the battery space. Suprizingly, with the huge wooden stock, it only fits a mini type battery. I tried putting in a small type from my m4 and it still would'nt fit so I highly reccomend you buy another mini battery. The packaging is AMAZING similar to the ARES TAR-21 packaging. All in, it has: the ak-74, one 600 round mag (MAKE SURE YOU ALSO GET THE HOLY COW 1 CENT SPECIAL), screw driver, 8.4 1100 mah battery, black flash hider, front post adjuster, mag winder, JG BB's, trinckle charger, manual, and some shooting targets. The electric blowback is very nice but on full auto, the bolt gets stuck in the middle. Very minor con but fixable by just firing it on semi once to reset the bolt. Unlike many JG ak47s, the mag wiggles out. HOWEVER, JG has welded the mag catch for your AK mag always stays in so it doesn't wedge out. Overall, very good buy if you want light support weapon in the field. I have three 600 mags so i'm carrying 1800 rounds on the field. However, the regular battery will problaby will not get you through all of the BB's.

Pros:
Decent FPS
17 bps (rate of fire, BB's per second) with a 9.6 you have 20 bps
Wood and steel
Looks sexy when an asian uses it
No gun wobble, very solid piece
Awesome price
Magazine capacity
AWESOME PACKAGING
Solid

Cons:
battery space
bad battery they give you
plastic grip, unlike most AK's with wooden grips
not as accurate (needs a better percision barrel, tightbore)
Ghetto fullstock is not the way to go with CQC
not easy to change out battery on the field.
