Things I liked:As soon as you open the box you can tell this is a great purchase. I love the Romanian design of the AK47 which was what drew me to this gun. Plus I wanted to convert a Romanian AIMS to an RPK ( Which I have done with this gun). Right out of the box this gun shot for me about 425fps with .20g BBs. Good accuracy too. The wooden furniture on this AK is nice for what it cost, and felt great when hefting it like it was made for. I especially love the blow back feature. Gives it a realism when firing. If you like the AK format like I do, then I'd highly suggest this piece be in your arsenal of airsoft weapons. Things I would have changed:Absolutely nothing. What others should know:There are a couple things on other reviews that are misleading. FOLDING STOCK.. people will post how wobbly the stock is. On any wire stocks you will get a slight to almost non-existent wobble. I can barely notice it on my gun.
FRONT FORE-GRIP... If this appears to be loose when you get this gun it is EASILY fixed. At the front of the fore-grip, the black fixture that holds the grip in place has a little lever. Flip the lever and it will loosen the wood grip for disassembly. Simply pull the grip and front lock back against the body tightly and flip that lever back to it original position and you fixed it, no wobble.
If you want to purchase this gun, do not let poor reviews deter you from it. This gun will provide you lots of fun.
Things I liked:This was absolutely one of the best buys I have ever done in my short time of airsofting. The amount of BBs you can hold in this drum mag is flat out amazing. Let alone that there is no manual winding. Simply press a button and it electronically does it. Plus an extra is it does make your gun look wicked. And for the price? You get WAY more bang for your buck than standard mags normally priced twenty dollars less than this and does not come close with amount carried. Things I would have changed:I can't think of anything on this I would change. What others should know:It does add a couple pounds to your weapon when fully loaded. But that is why they made slings is it not?
