[IMG]http://i55.tinypic.com/2n8o8c7.jpg[/IMG] OK so here it is! Sorry I took so long. Real Steel history: (copy pasta Mmmmm) The [B]AK-105[/B] is a shortened carbine version of the [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AK-74M"]AK-74M[/URL] rifle, which in turn was derived from the original [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AK-47"]AK-47[/URL] design and its [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AK-74"]AK-74[/URL] successor. The [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AK-102"]AK-102[/URL], [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AK-104"]AK-104[/URL], and AK-105 are very similar in design, the only difference being the caliber and corresponding magazine type. The AK-105 is chambered to fire [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/5.45x39mm"]5.45x39mm[/URL] ammunition. The AK-105 is supplementing [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AKS-74U"]AKS-74U[/URL] Carbines in Russian Army service. Compared to the AK-74M, AK-101, and AK-103, which are full-size rifles of similar design, the AK-102, 104, and 105 feature shortened barrels that make them a middle ground between a full rifle and the more compact [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AKS-74U"]AKS-74U[/URL]. Whereas the [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AK-10X"]AK-10X[/URL] rifles have longer barrels, full-length gas pistons, and solid, side-folding [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polymer"]polymer[/URL] stocks, the [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AKS-74U"]AKS-74U[/URL] is shorter, and features a skeleton stock. The Gun: ~Externals Everything on this gun is steel besides the handgaurds and pistol grip. I can take a magnet to the body and will attract right to it. The gun itself is very sturdy. I can't wobble the mag or the stock on this gun. ~Internals I have not yet to have the chance to open up this gun but I have put at least 1000 rounds and I have not yet had a problem. The reason I'm saying this is because I heard the piston and the motor fails after a certain thousand of rounds. The break down of this gun is quite different also, meaning it does not break down the same way a Dboys, Cyma, etc. would. It uses 7 grub screws to hold the gun together. Which is a bitch half of the time. ~How it shoots The range on this is excellent for a stock gun, but, i'll probably upgrade the bucking and barrell later though. I can easily hit a man sized target at least 90-120ft away with .25 bbs. The ROF is very menacing with a 9.6v battery. ~CONS! Yes I have some cons about this gun, just two. The pistol grip to me feels very flimsy and cheap. And the fuse wiring is very long. (refer to picture) [IMG]http://i55.tinypic.com/2q85zdy.jpg[/IMG] ~Do I Recommend This Gun Yes. If you know how to work on gearboxes and know how to do a little rigging work on AKs then I would recommend it. And if you don't want to buy the gun itself, LCT does sell body kits with everything to make the gun. All you have to supply is a working gearbox, a barrell, and a hopup unit. Hopefully you enjoyed this review! c:
Yay, do I get to see this gun tomorrow? Along with your other incredibly sexy AKs?
Yes, Yes you do. C:
:buddy: I can't wait. Do you still have that AK you had in the pictures for the paracord thread? [editline]12th August 2011[/editline] When I grow up one day mommy I want an AK like that.
My brother has a LCT RPK body kit, really nice stuff.
thats a very nice ak-74u you have there.
[QUOTE=Jat Goodwin;31693623]thats a very nice ak-74u you have there.[/QUOTE] You don't even know how many times I got that for my 102.
Could you go into a bit more detail about the breakdown and how it's different from a CYMA/Dboys?
OK, so the rumors about the piston giving out after a good couple thousand of rounds were true, so i took the liberty of replacing the piston. Forgive me of the quality I took theses from my Iphone.
