I
have always been a fan ok the AK-47 and Iwanted to get one for
my next AEG then while reading through the forums at Airsoftzone.com
I found that TJ was going to be selling a couple of Falcon Toy
Corp. GBB AK-47s! It was then i decide to take the plunge into
the world of classic airsoft.


First impressions When i
first got it in I did not have a working regulator setup so
Iwas unable to fire it for a couple of days -which was tourture.
However it did give me a chance to give it the run down.

When
Iopened the box I found everything in its place including the
original box of FTC BB’s ?! The replica itself is all metal,
save the lower reciever, the furniture is all real wood, and
everything on the gun is written in Japanese (including the
selector switch makings). It has a bayonet mount on the front
– but no bayonet :( maybe thats for the best anyway.

Firing
Finaly I got my regulator in, I picked up a palmer pursuit female
regulator. After an hour of trying to set the gauge at 85 PSI
Ifired a clip through it … how sweet the phut phut phut
of the BBs flying out the end of the barrel and the CLACK
CLACK of the bolt made me grin from ear to ear. At that point
I didn’t care if the BBs hit anything, but I did a small test
anyway. I managed to make 5 inch groupings at 50 feet, which
was good enough for me.
