Ak upgrade brands?

Im getting an cyma aims ak47 soon, and im debating on getting some tactical parts for it. I know i want to get some play in the gun before i buy, just wondering what brands are good. I would like an all black look.

This is what i was aiming for:

honestly. Out of acog/red dots/ low zoom zcopes.... I have found iron sites to be easiest to use. They are just less frusterating, easier to sight in, and easier to shot correct. Other than a for grip or flash light for night games most other tactical parts are pointless and just icing.
make a better cake before you put the icing ontop.

I like to call AK sights 'No bullshit sights'. Mainly because they are what they are. With other guns you'll have peepsights and all of this other shit around it (Think standard M4 sights) that are sometimes a pain.

What I do is just put the AK rear sight to its lowest setting, and let the hoop of the front sight rest ontop of that. No bullshit, airsoft isn't accurate enough for it to require you to line up properly so it works just dandy.

Give that method a try and see how you like it. If optics are really, really a must. You could just get a rail that replaces the rear sight, and slap on a t1 micro on it. But that'd look nasty.

Best of luck.

AK iron sight does not obstruct your peripheral vision like other optics will do (ACOG, red dots and others). As stated by Strelok, the accuracy and range of airsoft guns is limited to roughly 200 feets (200 feets can easily be reached with quality BBs combined a properly adjusted hop-up). It is still possible to attach optics by buying an AK scope rail.

Just remember that AEG (Excluding Semi-auto only DMR aeg) gets accuracy through volume of fire ; hence why Scope with magnification (low magnification like 4x is usually used) are used mostly by DMR (and BA of course) which have a limited rate of fire that requires higher precision to be effective.

Most stuff made by G&P is good. So is King Arms.
