AK & Variants Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

Another project finished, with the exception of a few pins and minor decorations. 

 

Barrel components are all from a real steel type 3 milled Bulgarian AK, outer barrel is a 1018 DOM tube that I had a coworker turn for me. Dboys receiver was stripped and cold blued.  

 

Hopefully I'll have time to cut up a few real AK mags this week to convert them to midcaps.

IMHO Real Sword>VFC>LCT>vast desert of nothingness>E&L>Dboys>Cyma>JG. If you are considering R&L or VFC i would say go VFC!

I personally prefer LCT over E&L, LCT takedown is more realistic, just dont know how internals compare between both

 

Anyway, unless you need a russian looking AK, best of the best is the RS Type-wahtever you like the most

A realistic takedown isnt a necessary thing I would compare between AS aks, and I dont think there is a big difference between lct and e&l what comes to takedown nor externals. Buy a gun that suits your needs, practicality is a good thing, so I suggest a short barreled gun with folding stock and polymer parts.

From what I've seen, the one thing E&L has over LCT is the crisp selector markings. Other than that, they're pretty much the same. LCT might have nicer internals, they don't seem like that standard ACM fair.

 

I did some stuff to my LCT 104. New suppressor and gas tube rail, stippled the foregrip. Sling is NVA:

So much different opinions :)

 

You pretty much get a brand new E&L for the cost of a used vfc, internals aint that big of a deal i guess.

 

Love it Yuri! My lct will look pretty much the same.

What brand pbs-1 is that ?

I ordered Madbulls version, should get it this week

 

As i mentioned before i found a VFC pmc version of the ak105 with retractable stock etc.

Problem is i dont want 2 104/105 now that im waiting on my lct aswell.

Is is possible to get a akm/74 forend separetely for vfc ?

The PBS-1 is by Building Fire. I thought it was going to be made of steel when I bought it but turns out it's aluminium. I don't mind though, this way the gun is a little less front heavy.

 

I agree that internals should not be a main concern. The thing with airsoft guns is that if it's broken on the inside, that's generally pretty cheap and easy to fix. Bad externals are very hard to fix.

Not pictured: my new E&L AK74MN. I can say definitively that in terms of overall feel and confidence that the E&L is better than the LCT. It's heavier and feels sturdier. I hear that the LCTs have somewhat better internals.

But either is a good choice and I don't think you'd regret them. You might regret an AKS-74U, though. :P
