    I have been trying to research my friends AK and the trade marks dont seem to match the airsoftGI model. Is it possible that the one in airsoftGI is back when redstar was vector arms? I remember reading that Vector arms was changed to Redstar.

    my receiver reads

    RED(star)STAR(backwards R)
    SEM.CA 7.62X39MM
    S/N ECHO1 9879628

    with RED(star)STAR(backwards R) under the charging handle

    Also inside the receiver in front of the hole for the trigger it has CM.029-01A, it looks like it was engraved into the mold because its raised lettering, more like writing i guess. Pictures will come later if requested, i assume someone must know something.

    Evike has the same trademarks, Newer updated pictured?

    I'm not very aware of Cyma guns, but if it says Cmo.29 doesn't that mean it's possibly a Cyma?

    Well Echo sold Vector arms weapons as well as they sell CYMA weapons. So with that in mind, it wouldn't be too shocking to see similar stamps or stickers places on the respective guns.
    Also keep in mind that often the pictures are stock pictures given to retailers from the manufactures. It could be pictures of an old model for a newer model on shelves now.

    I know that Echo1 rebrands Cymas, but whats a Cyma 029? I thought that an older model was a possibility but i dont want to assume that till it can be confirmed.

    Like I said, I don't know the Cyma guns. Just that they're called a CMO.something.

    Lol, that's another problem, if the cm029 is a underfold stock than this is a mis-stamped receiver. this has the full stock. The mounting brackets would be all different.
