GHK AKS-74U review by XavierMace
The GHK AK series is a gas powered blowback rifle using either Green Gas/Propane or Co2 depending on magazine type. The gun comes in a plain cardboard box with one magazine and a small instruction sheet. The gun is available from Airsplat in two forms, the smaller AKS-74U configuration with wood grips and a metal triangle stock and the full size AK-105 with black polymer hand guards and a black polymer folding stock. Both models are available from Airsplat for $299.99.
Product Description/First Impressions:
The gun comes packaged in a grey box with a drawing of the internals of the gun over a silhouette of an AKS-74U in the background. Inside the box, there are three pieces of cardboard trying to hold the gun in place. Depending on your delivery guy, the results may vary. Fortunately we are purchasing this for the gun, not the packaging but I would like to see a little more padding or at least some Styrofoam in the box to prevent movement. The minimalist packaging carries over to the contents of the box as well. Inside the box, you will find the gun, 1 green gas magazine, and a instruction poster. Both guns were lighter than expected, but as with most gas guns, that's somewhat offset by the weight of the magazines.
The 105 has a little more weight to it than the 74U, but not by much. The 74U is a little better balanced weight wise than the 105 but that's not really something you would normally notice. Both guns use the same magazines and internals.
At first glance, the gun will appear to look just like any of the other AK's out there, especially the DBoys. Of course there's a good reason for that, the gun is in fact a Dboys' on the outside. However, pop open the dust cover like you would to insert the battery and you immediately see this is no normal AK.
Internally, the gun looks almost naked. Instead of seeing a receiver filled with a gearbox, wiring, etc, you just see a trigger assembly and a basic hopup chamber. Even the bolt looks plain from this view. You would almost think the gun is missing something. On the side you have the traditional AK selector with the SAFE-FULL-SEMI positioning. One note here is that the selector lever seems to be getting shipped from the factory loose. However, 5 minutes of work and a small o-ring resolve that issue.
To access the hopup, you must pull the bolt back and then you can turn the adjustment knob. As you may have noticed, this is NOT a normal AK hopup like you would see in an AEG. This hopup is more like a G36 hopup (it isn't one though). This gun does not have a bolt lock system, so you must hold back the bolt to adjust the hopup. The recoil spring is not horribly stiff however, so this is not really a difficult process.
