Default How can I upgrade My AK?

I have a Cm.042, and I think this is going to be my main gun in airsoft fights, not only because its the most expensive, but because I love AK's.
How can i upgrade it?
I may plan on different load outs on it, (ie: Round drum and Bipod, or scope plus laser) So im looking for best accuracy and power upgrades.

Hopup, TBB, spring.

Have you done anything to it already?

definately a new hopup, TBB, but if you get a higher powered spring you might need some other stuff too, cause the stock internals are not good enough for a high powered spring.

No I haven't done anything to It yet besides Lube it.
The price of the upgrades determines whether I get it when I order my AK's round drum and bipod or scope and scope mount base.
I dont suppose anyone's willing to go out of there way to link all the things I would need?

At 420 id leave it alone and concentrate on upgrading the internals and externals for life span rather than power,

Metal bearings,,

Metal spring guide,,

Polycarb piston,,

reshim the mechbox,,,

good quality battery..hop up and TBB.
