Which AK should I get?

Post by master7000 » Thu Apr 15, 2010 5:07 pm

Which ak should I get. I know they're both CYMAs but they look like good guns for me.

First the CM.028: http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.p ... ts_id=1484

PROS: Cheaper, Larger mag, Seems like more people have it.

CONS: Possibly not as good FPS, Outta stock everywhere it seems like.

Second up is the CM.047D: http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.p ... ts_id=4003

PROS: Newer, Higher FPS, in-stock in a lot of places

CONS: More $$, Smaller mag, and stick type battery(which seem less common to me)
So which one should I get?

What appeals to you?

Who cares what we think...you should get what you want.

Otherwise...I say get neither.
I rather use a "nightmare" that shoots like a dream over something that looks like a "dream" but shoots like a nightmare.

Don't fear the gun...fear the one that's wielding it!

Well I like the CM.028 cause it looks more real but it's never in stock anywhere. And that's about the most I can spend if I want to get the gun sometime this summer.

If that is all you have, you won't even be able to play with it.

Are you in a hurry to get one to go out and play? If you are supplemental costs will cost you $40.00 each time you want to go out and play. And that does not include the price of a GOOD battery, charger, magazines, mask, bb's...

Both of those guns exist in the real world, so IDK why you think one looks more "real" than the other.

Well the AK47 is more common is what I meant and people with think the other one is fake. And I like the wood on it. And no I'm in a hurry to get one I just want one.

I hope you mean you like the wood look of the plastic. The furniture is all plastic. It looks almost exactly like wood though

Yes that's what I mean for airsoft guns but I was talking about real life.

Well if your looking to get a cheap AK here's another you could look at:

http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.p ... ts_id=2881

Otherwise theres some really nice $140 m4/m16's that you could look at. But if I had to choose between those two I'd go with the CM047D Full Metal AK. Seems a lot more reliable, if it's not pot metal.


Plus mag capacity really isn't somthing you should worry about. You should worry about whether or not it actually works and isn't a piece of junk. I'd rather have a 100 round mag then have a 400 round mag that misfeeds and breaks the first day.

I have a CYMA Ak, and honestly it's one of the best Airsoft guns I have ever owned.

I second Erik. I've been using my cm.036 for a couple of years now with regular games through the winter and am now at 100k rounds and haven't had any problems.

In real life the AK-47 is quite rare. The most common AK around the world is actually the AKM http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.p ... ts_id=3691
