    So I saw a video online with this gun in it, and I wanted to see how prices differed:
    http://www.airsoftmegastore.com/104...s-tactical-airsoft-aeg-rifle-blk-jg-1016.aspx
    Then I came across this one...http://www.evike.com/products/30210/
    And then this one... http://www.airsplat.com/jg-ak47-metal-airsoft-aeg-rifle-0516tu.html
    I can't tell how they're different, because they all look different externally in certain ways (even the AS and AMS guns, look closer,) and the Evike one is supposedly "custom." At the moment, the Evike gun seems like the best choice, but I can't find any reviews or that of any of the guns, other than some written ones on Evike, and I think on AMS. I would like to know which would be the best bang for my buck, and just which gun is best i.e. Best range, accuracy, stability of the exterior, etc. If anyone's had one of these guns, or multiple, that'd be great. But like I said, I can't find anything about them. Also, the Airsplat gun is listed as $180, but when I click on it, it becomes $140? (Is that the actual price, seems too good to be true.) I don't think I'll be getting the Airsplat one, it's more of a choice between the other two, as they look very high quality. Again, any help would be appreciated, but if they're both not as good as they look, would I be better off just getting this gun?http://www.airsoftgi.com/mobile/product_info.php?products_id=15398
    Sorry for the long post, but I can't decide, and nothing else helps as I haven't been able to find anything on these guns. PLEASE PLEASE help, even if you don't know about the guns, could you please do a little research? I don't want to waste my money, and any help would be appreciated. (Sorry for being over repetitive)

    I do like AKs, traditional for looks, and tactical for overall convenience I guess (attachments, rails,) but these AKs are more unique, which is why I like them. That Cyma looks very similar to the guns I chose, and I'll consider that as well, I just want to see if anyone has had any of these, to see if it is worth it. I've never owned a Cyma, and have heard that they're better than JGs, so I'll see what other info I get, but thanks for the help, I will consider that gun.

    Aside from much, much more expensive guns, the CYMA is the best AK you can get.

    Definitely go with CYMA for a budget AK, high quality compared to the price. Their CM.040+ models have quite nice internals actually, including steel bearing spring guide and neo magnet motor among other things.

    How is the Cyma that was linked, in comparison to KWAs budget M4 CQR MOD 2? I would prefer an AK but I feel for some reason, for $20 or so more, the KWA would be more worth it? I've never had a KWA either, but just going by bang for buck and brand reliability, is the KWA better?

    All in all though,would it be a bad idea to get the JG gun off of Evike? I like the sights more, the stock more, and the mag included more. Are JGs bad, and are the JG and Cyma guns listed not even comparable? Again, I dont want to waste my money, so sorry if I'm being kind of pushy or whatnot. I just like the JG one a little more, but I'm not sure if I'm willing to take the risk.

    Go with the Cyma you won't regret it there very reliable and you can get whatever sights and accessories later.

    There is a reason CYMA is well known for their AK's, and JG is not.

    Not saying JG's suck, but CYMA will outperform JG for the same price.

    Cyma aks are great, and if you know how to shim, correct aoe, regrease, and flat hop, you will have a gun that outperforms $300+ aks, and cyma has steel bodies, so the externals are decent

    The lower variants like the 35 which are still awesome are pot metal. Tough pot metal though.

    As an owner of two, CYMA is definitely your best bet. Stay away from the JG AK's

    Okay, one last question for now. Would it be more worth it to get a cheaper CYMA AK, like this one: http://www.airsoftgi.com/mobile/product_info.php?products_id=5803 or the one I was originally looking at: http://www.evike.com/products/48507/
    Are the externals the only thing that's different between them? Is it really worth it to spend _______ more money just for whatever's different? If the guns are the same internally, and just different externally, I'll probably just get the cheaper one. I like the look of the KTR more, but the Tac AK is much more affordable.

    I'd get the second one those electric blowback systems can be very unreliable it also adds more stress to your gear box because it has to produce the air to push the slide back.

    Most of them are mechanical, but you are still correct. Skip the EBB OP.

    The EBB can be disabled. I'd go with the EBB one because the build quality is better.
