Echo1 Red Star AKM Full Metal AK74 Airsoft AEG (Real Wood)
by Ben J. Date Added: March 13, 2010
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...
