Review: This gun is built like a real AK-47; nice quality weight and built to function under less than idea conditions. The look is intimidating and very real. Fits in with 1940's cold steel manufactured items. Nice sound when you cock it AND fire it. This is the first paintball marker I have ever really liked.

When you recieve the marker clean the threads, bolt, hammer, barrel, etc before even cocking it because it is fresh from machining. Lube it all with non petrol based lube. A gun this good deserves a Delrin bolt, a must have. The sling is real military issue. Real AK magazine and safety lever (two safety methods). Other AK mags will fit once their shell holding wings are removed. Real AK sights, real AK wood. The gun is easy to take apart and includes allen wrenches and spare cup seal that can be carried in the magazine. All working o-rings in the gun are the same size. The barrel uses a slightly larger size o-ring and the hopper feed port has the largest one to hold the hopper on tight.

Rap4 did sell this same gun as the FIRESTORM T68 AK47 for 3 times what is goes for direct from Tacamo.

I see some complain about the weight - - its an AK47. Mine has no issues but for those whos chops, add a ACS delrin bolt then a Palmers female regulator if needed.

Conclusion: Excellent marker given its build quality. Make sure to buy a delrin bolt since it will extend the life of any marker. When looking at a scenario AK47 airarm expect it to have some weight since it is a simulation product.
