Its that time of year again, I get a new rifle and slap up a quick first impressions/review. So onwards to the...err stuff. I bought the rifle from Samoon, whom happened to be the cheapest overall and did a great job getting the rifle and other bits to me. It comes well packaged in layers of cardboard, its unlikely to receive damage in transit I would think. Box contains the rifle itself and mag (or mags), speed loader, manual, a small bottle of silicone oil and a spare hop chamber. The manual is pretty basic but does the job, oddly only contains the part numbers for the AKS-74U. Spare hop chamber is interesting, I heard these were prone to breaking in earlier versions which may have prompted this. Using high quality BB's is highly recommended to prevent damage. Here's a little eye candy before I go on about the externals: As you may well know, the externals are LCT which are supposedly on par of not better than Real Sword externals. I cant really find anything to critique about the externals, except they are very clean. Everything fits with no rattle. The stock, sling loop and selector lever all require a fair amount of strength to use which is quite reassuring. This is a rifle that needs to be treated a bit more rough that you would think, even getting the top cover on requires a good slap. The rifle may have been oiled externally before I got it was it attracted dust something crazy, nothing a quick wipe couldn't handle. The magazine shell is a hard plastic with the front lug being plastic and the rear metal. The valve is well protected so you shouldn't accidentally vent your mags. There is a hole in the receiver just under the scope mount, I have no idea why its there though. (drainage?) Im really not sure what else to say on the externals, everything is just great to my eyes. Onwards to the internals and operation in the next post!
