    First Impressions: Tokyo Marui M4 MWS GBBR

    In depth review in Russian. I know most of you won't understand this, but if you skip to 12:20 you'll see the consistency below 0 degrees celsius in Russian woodland. I can translate anything for you guys, but his generally conclusion: He said he'll struggle to finish a mag using auto outdoors, but the system is very promising. Recoil is weak. Overall he recommends the gun to anyone looking for a GBBR in Russia. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-Qhnh32tFc

    First Impressions: Tokyo Marui M4 MWS GBBR

    So tempted by one of these, but I'm thinking of going GHK instead for several reasons. Removing the silver tube seems questionable to me, a lot of reading around and I keep getting mixed opinions on the whole system. Generally speaking, I think it's designed for 144a even in the mags (so long term durability is a concern), however the bolt catch Z system seems to be a winner (despite being a little over-complicated). I'd plan to keep a spare bolt/nozzle ready in my kit bag in case of breaking a nozzle mid game, which you can't currently do with TM either.

    RA Custom WE M4 AAC300 - CNC Forged

    Holding up nicely at the moment. Changed the rail system out but that's more for looks.

    That explains that then . Too used to testing with an empty mag.

    I don't speak Russian so its hard to tell if that'll work or not But it does look like a folding stock adaptor, just a neater version than the Hephaestus, as the joint is smaller. Thanks for that - I need to do a full disassemble, as its a used gun, I like to give it a really thorough internal clean. Given the cheap price of internal parts, I may just replace the sear and firing pin straight away. The firing pin is bare silver where it hits the mag, sear LOOKS fine to me, the only other wear I can see is on the hammer, and the standard wear on the underside of the bolt (but I don't think that is something that needs replacing). The only other small issue I've noticed, is that the return of the nozzle isn't very strong, so it never pulls all the way back into the bolt, unless I push it back by hand. Stronger spring, or lube needed? Thanks

    Okay I have my first GHK AK today, got a good deal on a second hand AK74M. I've got a few questions; 1) I intended to put a RS MOE stock on using the Hephaestus stock adaptor, however I bought the fixed version thinking they would all just fit (as I dont really want a folding stock, and a folding MOE just looks WEIRD!), but obviously it doesn't. Is there any way around this, or am I going to have to buy the folding stock adaptor? 2) Is there any difference in the size of the main body, between the AK74 and the AK105 varients? (As my intention is to convert this to a 105 varient) 3) Apart from a TBB it is stock internally, and some parts have a bit of wear (hammer, firing pin, and underside of bolt). Is there any other "upgrades" that I should be looking at putting in/changing out? And lastly, as its my first AK, how easy/hard are they to fully disassemble/clean/re-assemble? Thanks guys

    All that tells me is that an M4 is modular whereas an AK isn't I meant more in terms of performance and reliability so far?

    Very good well you can donate them to me as charity if you like! How are you finding the GHK M4 vs your AKs?

    Well its a 74M that I can get cheaper, with 4 mags, for about £50 less than a new 105 - so makes sense, just not sure I prefer the longer barrel models. I've got the Hepaestus AK rail set to go on and may will fit a MOE stock. Decicsions!

    Wondering now about getting a second hand 74M with mags for cheaper than a new 105. Trouble is, I can easily make a 105 into a 74M, but harder to make a 74M into a 105 :/ All I've got to go on for my preference is pics as I've never even seen one of these in the field.

    That's as good as I can expect I think. I don't really want to be "upgrading" internals, besides maybe the hop or inner barrel if necessary. The feeling I get from reading various places is that this AK series is generally a better performer than most M4 GBBR platforms? Mainly due to the larger gas reservoir though..

    Are they the plastic ones? Can't see the sales forums here for some reason

    I thought it was just the metal mags that had feeding issues? Is there a steel hop unit replacement though? Torn between models now, will have to put a rail system on it I think
