... So your saying because the mechbox is the same, the gun's a clone?

So you're saying a realsword AK (uses a standard V3 with the only changes being an extended anti-reversal latch so you can trip it on the outside of the mechbox) is a clone of a Tokyo Marui AK?

Externals are 50% of the gun.

TM guns barrel design = barrel wobble, CA and G&P = no wobble.

You need to modify a TM receiver to make it able to use an after market hop-up unit...


Not to mention the inside of the TM and CA and G&P mechboxes are unique to each company.. each of them have a different amount of metal in different places to reinforce it..
