    I was just wondering about Ak 74's. I would like to have one in the future and want to know the best brands and versions. Preferably I would want one with rails around 350-400 fps but thats not to important. I also like a good rof and for to be decently accurate. Im willing to pay 100-250 dollars but if its worth it I will pay a bit more. Also any accessory's or upgrades would be nice to know about. I've been looking at the cyma's are they any good?

    which is not important? the rails or the fps? lol

    CYMA is a good AK brand. any of the ak-74's will suffice. just pic a model you like first.

    you can do anytype of upgrade you want really. its a version 3 gearbox. wide range of internal parts.

    external accessories are a little limited as well being an AK model. but doesnt mean you cant do alot. All in the imagination of the owner.

    With an RIS front end you have external capabilities. Along with different types of stocks (Side, Under, Full). Scope mounts and so on

    For your price range, Cyma and Dboys is the way to go. I'm not familiar with the Dboys specific models, but from what I know and who I've talked with, they are excellent for the price.

    The best Cyma AK74 so far is the CM048. It has real wood and a stamped steel receiver (Some of the other external features are pot metal, but a good part, including the big pieces are steel). The one I used shot straight as an arrow and was actually pretty quiet.

    I do take issue with the plastic AK74 mags with the plastic mag "hook"(whatever the word for the part in the front that locks into the magwell, can't remember at the time). They break very easily. I myself have broken 2. Find some mags with metal latches on them or use metal Ak47 mags if you are feeling rebellious.

    I know that the Ak74 and the Ak74u are pretty different but what about the Ak74u's what are some of their good brands and I would most likely want the rails a little bit more than the fps but i want the fps to be decent still. And i have heard if the mags being bad too. Would cyma still be a good choice for a ak74u.

    I have an echo1 ak74u and I love it!
    It gives me the distance I need! I've had it since march and other the gears stripping (because I don't lube it for a while) it's a great gun. I got it from airsoft Atlanta

    Scratch that I have a 47 u but its amazing

    *tear rolls down cheeks* My baby...

    lol in all seriousness though, wicked gun. True workhorse. Just do a little basic tuning when you get it, and boom it'll take you through room clearances, down the hall way out the building straight into the woods.

    I've got a 220mm silencer I use when I install my 430mm prommy barrel. Other than that I'm pretty happy :)

    Assuming you had something to sell? I live in the UK anyway mate shipping would be a biatch lol
