"I wanted to start out this review with saying this is my first AEG, And Airsoft gun in general ever, So I may glorify some parts of the review because I am so excited to have this beauty, But I will go into deep detail about the aesthetics and looks and feels for the enthusiasts that really just want to real feel to there AEG.
Straight out the box, Didn't expect it to look as amazing as it did, The pictures where they show it don't do it a lot of justice, The wood looked bleach and a lot more pale, and the metal looked more like cast, But this isn't the case when you get yours. The wood is more how you would expect it on any AK, Darker tone and beautiful pattern of wood.
--------This is the Aesthetics part of the review, Only looks and feels-------
-Looking down the ironsights feels great and real.
-As far as Metal goes, Almost all of it consists of it, the grip isn't, but it doesn't feel bad or cheap at all, Looks good as well.
-Going back to the wood, There was some dried dripping paint from what it looked like on the stock and on the front handguard. Also to note the Front handguard seemed to move a little bit if you put force on it, But really not an issue.
-Comes with only 3 Stickers, THEY are all easily removable without ripping or leaving behind any paper.
-The fire mode selector couldn't look and feel better.
-A major like on this gun would happen to be a very subtle detail, The letters are indeed Russian for the Auto and Single, Also on the Iron sight, "P".
-Flash hider seems a bit hard to remove if you are trying to put something else there, but It doesn't look terrible. I'd just prefer a suppressor or compensator to make my AK look meaner.
-Magazines are generally all goodlooking on it.
-1 last thing, SHOOTING IT COULDN"T FEEL BETTER ITS AN AK (Not 47 But who gives a damn when it's an incredible looking AK variation) Will make you smile the first few shots from the feel it gives.
"The magazine has the slightest little wiggle, and the battery well is a tad small, but of the 2500 rounds I fired (all in one session) upon opening this CYMA product, I've not had a single issue with the hopup, FPS, or accuracy.
solid construction, solid gearbox- I'd definitely recommend this as a first for an electric airsoft gun
"This ak is unbelievable with what it offers to the user. This is my second gun and is better in every area except that my first gun is a thompson which people are always like OMG is that a thompson and i'm like "yeah, what about it? It's an airsoft gun" . I ordered this gun a YEAR AGO and it runs beautifully and is hitting right around 400 fps with .25g bb's. this gun has helped me achieve my greatest shots one of which was one shot at over 100 feet that hit a friend right in the head as he peeked from behind a tree
-Real wood (could be a con for smaller people because of added weight)
- metal durability
-endless possibility for load outs (I have a modern contractor, LRRP [Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol /Vietnam] load out for the AK & Thompson), Russian armed forces, and a US woodland surplus load out
-dumps bb's down range at a good pace
-could be used as a mil-sim gun as is
-mags fit in almost everything including m4 pouches, old US army surplus mag pouches, those cheap bandoleers that you see in Military movies
-mags fit snug
-externals are a 4/5
-rear sling mount is very annoying especially if your trying to sneak around and it hits your metal D-rings on your stuff (mount can be removed)
-rear sling mount AGAIN does not look like it could hold the gun when attached to the a single point sling
-charging handle is cheap
-go get to the battery compartment you have to take off two screws which those screws can lose their edges and then you have to tape the butt plate to the gun or get new screws
-wood will scratch if you look at it wrong (but gives it a cool weathered effect though)
-after a full day of play, can get annoying having to lug it around without a sling especially if you have a sneakier play style like I do
Final Words: buy it! you won't regret it.
