Looking for an AEG

Recommended Posts

Looking for an AEG that is no more than 350 fps, preferably around 330. Would like an AK style preferably but I am open to M4 style.

Going to play it safe and say either CYMA AK or G&G CM16. G&Gs are great starter guns and decently cheap, and practically everywhere sells them. You also have many options with individual guns - from Firehawk (tiny but loud) to Raider (standard M4) to R8-L (basically a DMR).

 

CYMA's AKs are normally really good, I used to have their AK-74M. Their AKs normally range from £130 to about £200. Personally I'd recommend their AKS-74u, it's short and great for all environments as well as being full metal. Forcecore AKs (made by E&L) are also a pretty good option.

 

Hopefully this is helpful to you!

Brilliant! Oddly the two guns i was looking at. I was also looking at the dboy ak74u ( http://www.tacticalairsoftshop.co.uk/dboys-ak-74u-1648-p.asp ). Would you recommend it? Also I would like to add a rail to it as well as buy an extra mag but was wondering what would fit? Thanks

Great coincidence there then! You could be okay but personally I'd go with the CYMA just due to being familiar with it. In terms of mags, pretty much any version of AK mag will fit - in my 74M (the AK-74M and AKS-74u have the same receiver), I could fit CYMA AK-74 mags, CYMA AK-47 mags and a TM Beta Spetsnaz mag. All fed perfectly. Where would you put the rail?

Awesome! I would love a rail to fit on the top so I could attach a red dot sight? Opinion on this? http://www.tacticalairsoftshop.co.uk/cyma-ak-sports-line-metal-gearbox-cyma-cm028-202-p.asp

Alrighty, so the CM.028 is basically their base AK-47, with a plastic body. They're pretty good for what they are, actually. Bit more difficult to get a scope rail on the 47s because they don't have a side rail mount. What you could do is try and find a railed dust cover to replace the stock one, such as this http://www.patrolbase.co.uk/airsoft/golden-eagle-ak-47-74-railed-dust-cover.htm#.VtSQ9_mLTcs

Okay brilliant! What would you recommend? An AK or m4? If you had to choose?

It's really up to you. As someone who's owned both an AK and an M4, I preferred the AK just because of how different it was. The M4 is more versatile and has slightly better ergonomics, whereas the AK seems generally cooler and has a slightly better gearbox design (V3 rather than V2). Whatever's best for you, at the end of the day!
