"this gun shots very well when I got it outta box but for some reason the hop up got messed up so replaced it with a new one and a angel customs barrel shoots like a laser beam now and one thing they got wrong in the description was the thread is not 14mm its 24mm had to return a 14mm one i bought for a 24mm one but over all its a good gun.
"tis' nice, had to use a 8.4v stick, and it fired pretty well. havent had the chance to try it with a 9.6, because the info page is wrong. DO NOT BUY A SMALL TYPE FOR ANY OF THESE. they are all stick type battery users.
since everybody and their mothers are doing "pros & cons", heres mine.
- FPS with a 3 y/o 8.4v stick was between 250-300 FPS (using .32s)
- sturdy. full metal construction makes it very sturdy, however, once you begin adding more parts to it, the weight
becomes a little too heavy for my liking. (see my build section for more info)
- nitpick, but the sound the bolt makes when you rack it is nice
- weight, since the fun is full metal, if you buy this, i suggest buying a sling.
- length. the gun deffo is not meant to be a CQB gun, although it is very possible. when i use my gun, i always
switch to my pistol if i have to go indoors.
i bought the crane stock version with intent on creating a NATO-esque AK74, this is the partlist and some words of warning:
Gun: This one, Crane stock version
DC: CYMA Dust Cover (warning: the gun and this DC does fit out the box, but the pin for the DC wont fit in the guns rearsight hole, meaning its possible the dust cover will fall off the gun if the gun is held vertically (only ran into this problem when there was an optic on the dust cover, and taking the stock rear sight out is a pain in the a**)
HG: SLR SOLO MLOK. this too wont fit out the box. the gun has a Sling Loop that can not be removed unless you remove the gasblock, front sight, and muzzle device. i took mine into an airsoft station store, and they took the stuff off just fine.
Stock: EMG "BRAVO" slimline will work out the box. and imo, looks WAAAY better on the gun than the standard M4 stock thats already on it
Mags: Matrix DLS 200 Round Midcaps. they may look like AK47 mags (they are), but they work just fine with the AK74, since there is no caliber besides 6mm BBs and both AK47 and 74 mags use the same feeding mechanism (aeg 47s and 74s that is, no clue about GBBRs)
this one is user preference, but i used a Ferro Slingster clone from Aliexpress, and it hasnt failed me yet.
this part list should work for any of the other AKs variants, aside from the stock. for that you will need to buy a AK-buffertube adapter.
