    Question regarding camo

    You might want to consider a PARTIZAN M camo suit it reversible so it can be used during summer time with lush vegetation, and in autumn when everything turns brown you can use it pretty much all year round. I personly use it and find it works well in the UK woodland environment. https://grey-shop.ru/Camouflage/Russian-Sniper-Suits/Partizan-M

    E&L gen 2 AKS 74UN

    Time Left: 1 day and 18 hours

    • For sale or swap
    • Used

    Back up for sale as the previous buyer encountered some personal problems. Lightly used Gen 2 AKS 74UN in my possession it has simply been used for display only. Features of the Gen 2 E&L AK series are standard v3 gearbox with quick-change gearbox spring, Prowin style hop unit which gives better air seal due to it being connected directly to the gearbox and magazine well insert which eliminates the problem of over-insertion of a magazine which was a problem on the E&L Gen 1s and 1.5s Included in this advert is: E&L gen 2 AKS 74UN, 5 lct 500rd black polymer 5.45X 39mm style magazines ( I do have more which can be included for extra) oil can, Soviet sling and original box. Swap wise looking for s&t type 38 Arisaka. Price is: £230 including PayPal fees Any questions or if you need more pictures please do not hesitate to ask.

    £230.00

  3. No problem and good luck with finding the AK and the build.
  4. The metro series are excellent games only played on xbox360, hope your build goes well. You may want to post a wanted ad on the other airsoft forums such as zeroin and pre-fired they may help widen the catchment area and get you the desired AK.
  5. That some serious financial backing/commitment for the metro Kalash you must really like it.
  6. What your budget for the whole build if you don't mind me asking?
  7. Have you had a look at anywhere in Europe in case patrol base does not have the AK in stock when you have UKARA?
  8. that a kick in the proverbials how far off are you from obtaining your UKARA?
  9. Unfortunately, most cyma AKs in my experience are quite resistant to natural wear and tear due to the paint they use for the finish you could try a very high grit sandpaper and use the in-game reference pictures as a guide that one possible option if you have the confidence to do so.
  10. The stock in the pictures is definitely a polymer version you can tell by the sling points. It sounds like you got a good plan of action let us known it goes I will be very interested to see your interpretation. Are you going to try the Ares slim motor pistol grip mod for extra realism?
  11. The only to things that I can see looking at the in-game picture you have provided, is in the second picture it shows a recessed buttstock like that of an AK74 wood stock on the side where the should be an indent to accommodate the scope mounting system which is what it seems to be trying to replicate with the rear part of the receiver showing what looks like a folding stock mechanism release button, Also the wood lower handguard appears to have a recesses running along it length not a swelled protrusion handguard like you see normally to help with grip. Also, the exposed rounds of the magazine which for me is a major recognisable feature of the metro Kalash it will be interesting to see how or if you decide to incorporate it into your build Are you going for real tritium for your AK sights or the QD nighttime version also what brand of mos-fet are you going for? Here is a video you may find helpful (if you have not already seen it)
  12. Cyma Brand AKs 0.40 series are a good base rifle for the project you are working on pretty much standard v3 internals so upgrades are not a problem, To be-honest I would not worry to much about upgrades until you actually buy and use the rifle, you may find its perfectly usable (just remember there is a beading in period with the hop rubber so range and accuracy will be a bit off at first). If you want dead set set on upgrades it all depends on what you wanted e.g. a high rate of fire build, high fps, build long range build this will dictate the upgrades parts you will need. One upgrade I personally do to all my AKs is to change the standard hop unit to a Pro-win hop unit( or copy depending on price and availability E&L ak hop unit is a copy of the Pro-win) or a lonex one , I might also change the hop rubber to a mad-bull blue hop rubber or g&g green hop rubber both of these give fairly good range and is a very simple to do. If you are looking at range their also R-hoping but I personal have had mix results with this. There are also barrel changes but that down to personal preferences I am a fan of ORGA Magnus Barrel, Pdi and Mad-bull The main thing (that I am sure you are well aware of) is the external build their a lot of work there, are you going for a 100% accurate reproduction? Have you also consider an LCT AK74m they are fairly affordably and full steel with better standard internals in my opinion compared to the Cyma.

    Buying a AK not sure which 1 to choose

    Your best bet out of the three you are interested in my opinion would be to go with the CYMA CM.028A TACTICAL AK47 W/ SOLID STOCK. Due to a number of reasons. As you stated a bigger battery space is always welcome. Two the folding on the CM.028U AK47 the hinge mechanism is a week point and has a tendency to snap off if you drop or bang on a hard surface worse case I have seen has been where it cracked and broke the rear part of the receiver. The full polymer AK is OK but cyma polymer reputation has been very iffy people never keep them for long and switch to the alloy/steel version. All three have version 3 gearboxes so plenty of spares and repairs as well as upgrades if your interested in that route, however, they are based on the Tokyo Marui design AK so disassembly is based on a lot of screw removal which can be a pain to work on. But to be honest I personly would not buy any of the three you listed if you are dead set on one of those AKs it's your money and your hobby but the 28 series of AKs are a very economical choice which translates into the final product and a lot of parts use subpar materials on parts such as front sight post, rear sight, gas tubes and receivers which have a tendency just to break/crack. If you are after an economical option, I would recommend the CYMA CM.048 series of rifle they use a lot more steel and still use the version 3 gearboxes but are based on the VFC designed so the field strip/disassembly similarly to the real steel one which translates to fewer screws making working on them easier. If you have a bit more money then LCT would be the next best thing full steel, lots of versions plenty of tactical variants if that floats your boat, V3 gearbox and based on the VFC designed. There is also E&L which are very similar to LCT.

    Recommend a decent out-of-the-box DMR?

    Absolutely right in this individual case considering that they do not appear to have any of the original paperwork, box, scope bag, scope maintenance kit, rubber eye relief, cleaning kit and disassembly tools, it looks to me personally like they brought it second hand and are trying to make a profit. the only saving grace is that it a gen2 so no need to buy and install the Gearbox Unlock Switch.
