The real steel AK-47 is the most famous assault rifle in history and holds its place in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most produced and widely used assault rifle in the world. Since it first went into production in 1947 it is estimated that over 90,000,000 rifles have been produced. Chambered in the hard hitting 7.62x39mm cartridge, the AK-47 is a fearsome combat weapon which has the reputation for being able to take massive amounts of abused and still keep firing. While many people have labeled it as the weapon only used by baddies, the AK-47 has actually been in the service of US Special Forces as well as many other elite counter terrorism units around the world.
This airsoft replica of that infamous rifle is officially licensed by Mikhail Kalashnikov who designed it shortly after the end of WWII. This model is an entry level electric rifle which is good for having some full auto fun in your basement or teaching your younger relatives how to shoot but really is not conducive for any sort of skimishing activity. It does feature a functional fire selector with a Romanian Safe, Semi, Full layout and its plastic furniture has surprisingly nice wood grain pattern.
Being that it fires a .12g at an average of 180 fps this AK-47 does not exactly receive high marks in performance, although the main purpose for a rifle like this is simply to have fun and in that area it does very well. Capable of firing over 8 shots in under 1 second does make for hours of entertainment zinging down soda cans or annihilating any dust bunnies that may be lurking in the corners of your basement.
Please note: The magazine on this rifle is inserted straight into the receiver and not at an angle which is typical of AK-47 models.
Comes with: 7.2v 700mah battery pack, 200mah trickle charger and cleaning rod. Battery charge time: 3.5 hours
Please do not use the sling mounts on this rifle or the sling which it comes with. Both the mounts and the sling are very light weight and have been known to break if the rifle is slung from them.
