"Got this for $85 on sale 4 Oct 2016. Probably the best value for an AEG I have ever seen. Included:
-Cardboard box branded "Golden Eagle" plus lots of polystyrene foam packaging.
-Gun plus blue SB199 tape for Cali residents
-ONE 600-round AKM type magazine. Come on Evike, TWO (2) mags were advertised. Going to knock off one point but for $85 who am I to complain?
-Standard cleaning rod.
-9.6v 1100 mAh stick-type small-tamiya connected battery.
-100 or so .2g Goldenball-brand biodegradable BBs.
-Standard dumb charger. 10V at 300 mAh. Just under a 4 hour charge time for a fully empty stock battery.
-Magazine winding wheel and front sight adjustment tool
It is relatively heavy. Balanced slightly towards the front but the mass is nothing to complain about considering my next point. Full metal, can't tell if normal stamped steel or a ferrous pot metal but it is fairly thick and durable enough. Only plastic parts are the motor grip and the vertical foregrip, which are fairly smooth to the touch. Stock side-folds to the right, resting just under the ejection port and it is locked with an incredibly stiff button located on its hinge. Despite what it may seem, you can get a good cheek weld on the wire stock. However, it is very slippery on your shoulder and not ideal.
Clocked around 385 and 900 RPM with the stock battery and BBs. It has an M4-length (363mm) brass barrel and basic hopup, a classic "functional" AK design philosophy. Speaking of shooting characteristics it is very smooth. Does not whine or bark super loud, evident of a decent shim job from the factory. Full auto spits BBs everywhere, no big surprise.
Sights are not wobbly on my example, contrary to what other reviewers have said. However I will say that as with pretty much all soviet style sights they are pretty bad for accuracy, especially in comparison to an AR15 or just about any scope/red dot.
Stock muzzle brake is big, fat, orange, and metal. Gun is threaded 14mm CCW. Go figure. That hideous foregrip can also be removed but without it you'll have a hard time grabbing the slim, all-metal handguard.
Overall this was an absolute steal at $85. Even at the base price of $165 this would be a good gun, but I would stay away from it at full MSRP as many of the CYMA-type AKs are on sale for about $40-$60 cheaper and provide similar features. "This ak was probably the best value for the money when it came out a few years ago. I've had thus gun for about 3 and a half years and not one bit of me regrets buying it. However, there are some things to know about it when you get it.
First off, wobbly sight. Force some aeg shims on the pins until it is snug.
Second of all, ABSOLUTE GARBAGE HOP UNIT. Replace asap. Barrel is fine. I bought an shs cnc unit and rounded it to fit inside the outer barrel.
THIS IS A VFC STYLE AK. This is good and bad. The good thing is that it's the strongest built ak on the market and ridiculously easy to takr apart. Bad part? Aftermarket externals...ehhh....good luck finding what you need. It's easier to put real steel handguard on, but....airsoft specific stuff is going to be harder to find. Luckily it's tough as hell, so don't worry.
Also, there is no plate in the mag well that keeps the mags from getting rocked in to aggressively. So train with this thing to keep from fumbling on reloads.
The wire stock is potmetal. Still remarkably tough. Did a cartwheel down a hill on it in a firefight, seemed fine. The notch rounded over eventually though, so it just sort of sticks in place.
Other than that it's a great platform to learn how to work on aegs, and is overall a really great gun to boot. Will never let you down as long as you keep it maintained and run good bbs in it. "I originally bought this gun because it was my favorite gun in a game called Alliance of Valiant Arms. Ok so this gun has given me no problem at all i love easy to use. GET THIS GUN PLS. Great for the price. Looks and feels amazing and is super accurate. Read More Reviews Write a Review

JG Golden Eagle Full Metal AK AMD-65 Airsoft AEG Rifle
The AMD-65 is the latest to JG's lineup of AEGs. Not being your traditional AK on the field, this gun stands out with it’s unique foregrip and folding stock. Some key features to point out is the shorter front end and folding stock. The front section uses a short ended outer barrel and gas block compared to other AK’s. Allowing room for maneuverability, this gun is great for close quarter environments. To increase the control while on the move there is a vertical tactical grip added to the bottom of the metal hand guard. On the back of the gun is the metal folding stock that is fitted with a rubber pad. The stock has a secure lock feature that must be pressed in while the stock is extended or folded over. With the locking feature the stock is secure while in use and still allows quick use if needed.
Constructed mostly out of metal the AMD-65 uses a steel body to keep the weight and feel of the gun very realistic. The inside is nothing but the best using upgrade parts to make this a field ready gun out of the box. Included in every AMD is a MadBull Blue hop up buckings giving players a pre-upgraded AEG.The gearbox uses 8mm steel bearings with steel gears giving the player a durable and efficient Airsoft gun. The piston is made out of polycarbon and has a re-enforced pick up tooth and the second tooth. An already trimmed AoE meshing and a ported piston head with bearings is already installed allowing the AMD to be one of the best built Airsoft gun out on the market.
