As it goes - any questions, comments or observations - fire away!
I forgot to mention on the review thread that this AEG takes standard ak mags. Anyone using a real sword type 56 may have encountered the issue with mag compatibility. The LCT reliably worked with king arm mids and also the beta ak pmags I'd modded to fit the galil.
Nice review merry, loved it. The gun is wicked! used some LCT ones myself, so completely agree
Cheers guys - I'm actually shocked that I've heard nothing about these aegs before now, other than on a few specialist sites (like Pudings Red Badger site).
It could be my old AK hate, but there's tonnes of reviews and commentary available covering G&P, G&G, Ares, King Arms etc - but as a stock gun this thing is just amazing.
A Certain Retailer/Custom Gun Maker was on site yesterday and when I mentioned my intention to stick a replacement v3 VFC box in it (prior to skirmishing it) he agreed - but we both changed our minds after having used it for the day (which is odd as I would have been sourcing the parts and getting the work done at his place). I intend to do nothing to this AEG until it wears out (which they all do in time), at which point I'll probably change the gearbox out. There's just no reason to do anything to it.
@FK - do you have any notion about the internals on this thing? As mentioned I've no intention on taking it apart but I'm genuinely curious about what parts are inside? Everything visible inside the receiver looks to be rock solid.
The one constant in an inconstant world....one thing I could always count and rely on......Despot's disdain for all things AK.......my world has just crumbled around me......
On another note.....great review, altough I do think you should open her up so we can all have a looksee
The internals are actually made by lct , lct used to use Cyma gearboxs but soon started making there own internals to go with the externals , you can by complete gearboxs and parts from wgc for example, prices are not bad
Cheers Puding - good to know. And Marcus, no way am I cracking it open until I need to!
What puding said. Nice bits of kit from what I've seen. I wouldn't bother upgrading it short of necessity. They do lovely work.
I had my sights set on getting a new CYMA 47, but seing this I think I'ma have to invest in LCT's AKM. It looks beautiful, I'd take it to bed with me and wake up in time to make it breakfast.
I know - the AKM is a lovely piece. I initially wanted to get an AKM, but it almost felt wrong to subject it to the general battering that it would receive on site in my useless hands! I bought the AKMS as a 'skirmish-able' alternative (thinking that I wouldn't mind getting it beat up). Wrong!
Instead I've gone and bought the cheapest model that they had in the store as a secondary - the AK105 (which has the same shorter barrel, but a sturdier side folding stock and modern/polymer fittings, but identical internals). It got it's first run in at HRTA today and it performed just as well as the other gun - but I didn't feel quite as bad getting it beat up to hell crawling around through the scrub.
So - god help me - I've now two of these beasts. Both are fantastic performers straight out of the box, though the AK105 will
probably be my main 'go to' AK - purely on the basis that I won't mind getting it so scuffed up.
Haha, good to see the AK love spreading
The monay I need to buy one cannot come soon enough!
...Ak's are not supposed to be clean or pristine
Indeed - and the AK105 won't be Kev!
