||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.
