"Okay, I've owned this for a while now, so let's dig in:
Right off the bat, be warned. It's an AK with a metal assembly on the front. It's front heavy, and heavy in general, so while you CAN single-point sling this thing, you'll be better off getting a two point setup unless you have traps like Tom Hardy. The RIS is rough, so get some gloves or a foregrip. The twin charging handles make it tough to fit in a hard shell case, but soft cases seem to work pretty well. Also, there is NO rail on the dust cover. You can find them, but be prepared for that.
Now for the rest. This thing is a MONSTER for the price. I can tag an 8 inch target at 30 yards on full auto with a 90% hit rate. I did the math, honest to god. 90 percent. And with some basic upgrades, it'll run with guns that cost 2-3 times as much. The crane stock is straight off an M4, and fits all the usual butterfly batteries. No wobble in that or the motor grip. Honestly, the whole gun is built a lot more solidly than I expected a 150 dollar gun to be. Rate of fire is about on par with an actual AK74, but you can up it with a mosfet and 11.1 lipo.
Now, be warned, it IS a Cyma. The receiver is steel but just about everything else is either aluminum or pot metal. This can be fixed, of course, but just keep it in mind. But with that said, if you're looking for a decent backup that just works, and takes a beating, but you're not afraid to rough it up; or you need a beginner gun that stands out and can put up with some abuse, this is your Huckleberry.
"I've been playing airsoft for 5+ years, and I bought this gun as my first AK platform (for an MSW game coming up). I've fielded it twice and both times I was an impenetrable wall of BBs. I've done nothing to the internals, and this thing is a beast! Out of the box performance knocks all expectations out of the water. Accuracy is fantastic with .25s, and the FPS will ensure that the unfortunate soul on the other end of your barrel calls his hit. The RIS is very solid, and the stock wired battery compartment allowed me to use all of my M4 butterfly crane stock batteries, which saved me a pretty penny. This thing's unbeatable for the price.
-Very sturdy, full-metal construction
-Crane stock wired!!!
-Surprisingly good out-of-the-box accuracy
-Fire-selector switch was pretty loose out-of-the-box, nothing a little tightening couldn't fix
-Two charging handles, one on each side. This gives it a pretty huge front-back profile, making it hard to fit into a hard-shell rifle case, and just seems unnecessary considering traditional AK reloading styles for right-handed shooters
-Orange tip is a pain to remove. After the boiling water failed, I had to resort to dremelling it off.
"Ive had an amazing year with this gun. First off let me say i bought it in march last year as kind of a back up. I foolishly let it sit in the cornr for about 2-3 months then i decided to tinker with it. Stock it was 400-410 fps with valken .2s. after a day or so planning on what to do to it i made the decision to magpul it out. thing looks awesome. Now for the food stuff...no and i repeat no internal work except and upgraded zci high torque motor and flat hopped the bucking. With those 2 simple upgrade it is deadly accurate with .28s and .3s. aloso for mags i would go for the matrix waffle p mag lookalikes. they feed well and fit my tan and black magpul pmc build.
