The real steel AKS-74U (Avtomat Kalashnikova Skladnoi 1974 Ukorotshjennyi) was introduced by the Russia Tula Arsenal. It is the compact version of the AK-74 as the barrel is significantly shorter and equipped with the folding stock for ease to mount and dismount. The Front sight and rear sight radius was reduced due to the short barrel. The muzzle brake was improved from the full size version to reduce muzzle flash. The AKS-74U was intended as a personal defense weapon (PDW) for tank, helicopter and other vehicle crews as well as the famous KGB, paratroopers, special forces operators where operations are usually in urban area and comfined spaces but fire power of an assault rifle is needed.
Cyma 035 AK Vs. Boyi (D-Boys) Kalash RK01 Airsoft AEG Rifles Click for more reviews
Editor's Note: review and comparison of two of the recently released AK clones --- the CYMA 035 and the Kalash (DBoys/BOYI) RK01. Previously, AKS kits were expensive to acquire, and with the release of two low-cost ACMs, have made collecting for avid AK lovers more affordable. This review is very comprehensive and loaded with pictures. Let's catalog the similarities and differences of these two Krinkov airsoft gun clones and see which one is the best fit for you and your play style. To make for easier reading, the discussion will be divided into:
- the business end -- muzzle brake and front sight block
- rear sight block
- receiver: fire selector lever, side scope mount plate, pistol grip
- receiver: mechbox, hopup assembly, bolt carrier & guide rod
- folding stock
- issues & concerns
- overall impressions
In the box are the NiMh 8.4v 2/3A 1100mAh battery, charger, a pack of 0.2g bbs, a cleaning rod, and one hicap mag. no manual. no sight adjustment tool.
The Kalash definitely wins in this area with its arresting packaging.
In the Kalash box, aside from what Cyma has, Boyi includes a gorgeous black sling. Could have been another plus point for Boyi if the sling were a khaki or an OD sling that fits the Krinkov.
The Kalash comes with a good manual which I forgot to include in the pic. The manual, however, omits a plastic part that positions the hopup chamber in the receiver. Minus points for Boyi here.
BUSINESS END: Muzzle Break and Front Sight Block
