"I personally really like the "quick spring change" function because it means you don't have to hold it in and shove the gb together, really makes it easier. The bearings are also good. However, I did have to modify some things to fit, such as widening the hole that the fire selector goes through, and shaving the holes the motor cage screws on to. Also, this will not fit properly into a CYMA ak47 because the top is different. (doesn't allow dust cover assembly to fit over it) Overall, the shell itself is pretty good, but it sometimes must be modified to fit.

"Fair warning, this gearbox (even though it's listed in the G36 section) DOES NOT FIT in a g36 without modification.

I bought this gearbox for a custom build in a JG G36c, and it doesn't fit. the mounting rails (or whatever they are) on the top of the gearbox shell don't allow the gearbox, fitted in the lower receiver of the gun, to fit into the upper receiver.

If you're not afraid to do some basic grinding to make it fit, feel free. The piece that goes in between the rails on the top of the gearbox also requires modification of the shell so that it will fit, allowing the upper and lower halves of the gun to be screwed together.

I still gave it a 3/5 because it's appears to be very good quality. All surfaces appear smooth and the halves fit very well together. Installation into an AK would probably be pretty painless.

So, in conclusion, nice shell for an AK build. I bought it for a G36 and was pretty disappointed.
