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.
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.
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.
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)
~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:
I can't wait.
Do you still have that AK you had in the pictures for the paracord thread?

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.

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.
Grubs screw positions for Fernris:
Onto the gear box.
The replacement (I shanked my hand trying to get the wire plate off.)
Other than that, the internals are nice with steel gears but it's not greased handsomely.
