Granted the gun is of heavier weight, consider this to be an option for a good automatic sniper. With a longer inner barrel, a scope, and low profile ak mags you can be watching and picking off the op-for and have the advantage of full auto fire so if you were to miss the first shot, the next 20 in that burst sure wouldn't. If you were to find yourself beginning to get overrun and out numbered, drop the short mag and load it with a hi cap, dig in, and show that you mean business.
I do not own this weapon, but being an experienced tactician and a field commander, using every advantage possible out of your weapon and field position based on your load out is the best means of aggressive, game winning, playing and this gun fits a good multi-role bill
-standard factory loaded
-very mobile LMG
-AK body kits that replace the wood for polymers and railed hand guards are compatible, because this is in fact, a normal ak with some beef. (could take the weight off too)
-14mm ccw muzzle, consider a tracer to unleash a stream of insanity, or a mock suppressor to even further increase inner barrel length
-assaulting can be difficult in close to mid ranges(consider aggressive defense)
-inner barrel length compared to outer barrel does concern me (again, fix it)
-high ROF (liked by most, not so much by me, think about it, winding mags after -each firefight, but again, never a problem)
-battery size (could be fixed with a different stock)
all in all it's a great weapon, good project gun, not going to regret buying this when i do, and i'm sure you won't either.
