I've got a beautiful Lada for sale. It's almost all Metal, it can go fast, and it even has a revolutionnary system called Brakes. Pretty sure if I hit somebody with it, he will bleed. Must be the best car in the world.

I even did 3000 klicks with it so far, and it's still working!

Aftermath products can be cheap, but there's a reason.

No, it's not that they decided not to make any profit out of it.

It's all because of the materials chosen and the tolerances.

You pay for quality.


And FYI, Statua, G&G is still a clone company. I've seen some shitting a brick at the field. I've yet to see a TM or any other "medium to high" quality AEG break.

It's well known Aftermath rebrands CYMA's. I'm pretty sure that someone took one apart and pointed out certain markings on certain parts and they were CYMA parts (it actually may have been Amos).

It's all the same with companies like Palco, Cybergun, and such that don't actually make their own stuff, just rebrand clones.

LastSpartan hit the nail on the head.. on the nose.. and in between the legs.

Just to add to it.. in short;

It all depends what your needs are, budget and frequency of play. If you play weekly; cheap materials will wear out much quicker than if you played monthly.

Buying an aftermath does give you one advantage.. if you get a lemon within 30 days, at least you can return it

Aftermath products are cheap, they have a high failure rate (50%+ in some cases), and can be a bitch to find fitting aftermarket parts for.

Chances are you'll end up spending what you payed for the gun within a year of owning it on parts.

The bodies are crap, the accuracy is crap, shimming is meh... almost everything about them is meh.

You get what you pay for. Decide for your self if you want a cheap "meh" gun that might fail on you, or if you want to spend more money on something proven to be more reliable and better performing. Your choice, we can't make it for you.

Oh, and to all the "once you upgrade them they're good" fanboyz... guess what, once you replace all the internals, it's no longer an aftermath, is it?

I've taken over 25 krakens apart. The mechboxes are branded 'cm.028' they are identicle boxes to the cyma 028 ak.
I would provide photo evidence, but im posting from my phone.

Ditto. Cyma make the products for Aftermath to their specs. As in cheaper parts and high fps to break them with.

CM.02 is the marking on older Cyma Ver.3 boxes (CM.028, CM.028S, Kraken Etc.) and has a silver/grey shell

New Cyma Ver.3 boxes have the CM.02B gearbox, with the black shell and metal bushings, these are found in newer Krakens, and Cyma AK's with the CM.03x designations

There goes my plan for my next AEG. Meh, I'll play my AM AK till it dies out but honestly, I must have gotten lucky considering the lemon rate cause it's done me well so far. Ishould step up from 0.20 (only bb's in my area. too lazy to order online) to a 0.28. Was firing a couple of em (ok maybe like 60) and they perform much better.

But I do love the full metal body of a good G&G. With some TLC and some good choice in parts, you can turn a G&G into a powerhouse on the field.

aftermath is not the best but not the worst i shot a kraken for a year or so with a little help from my gun tech it shot grate.
a little TLC goes a long way when it comes down to the kraken
but i cant vouch for the other AEG'S that aftermath produces as i have not owned on or shot one.

If you change parts, it's no longer a G&G

I'm not overly impressed with G&G metal bodies. They're still way better than plastic, but I think Classic Army has them beat.

Funny, When I look at my basement I see several boxes full of BB Bastard .25, .28 and .30... And last time I checked they were publicly available for sale to players in Manitoba!
