What they don't say is that these similar internals are crap.
Actually, if you read reviews of the newer (after their split from WELL) CYMA guns (starting with the MP5 and continuing with newer guns) they are decent quality - not at the TM or *new* CA level for quality control, but a close equivalent to G&G or G&P.
There's a number of threads on FILAirsoft about the CYMA AK's that people are running Guarder FTK's with M140 springs in CYMA mechboxes.....there are a bunch of videos from Hong Kong on YouTube, too.
Another line of Chinese clones worth looking at is Jin Gong. They are coming out with a ton of new guns that are apparently even better than CYMA and are being touted as the same quality as TM at half the price.
'Course, I'll believe that when I see it....
