Ok, so i am now a proud owner of an ICS AK74M, and all i can say is...woah...the gun feels solid and has an excellent matte finnish that gives it a real "killer" look.

In addition to the two hicaps, i also got my hands on a box of the 30 round STAR AK47 mags. The hi-caps fed reasonably well with only one or two skipped bb's, but with some good winding they managed to keep up. The STAR mags also fed well, but again, a few skipped rounds every now and again, but a small mod would be easy to make these mags sit just that little bit higher.

The gun shot nicely and had good accuracy once the barrel had been cleaned and the hop up set.

My only gripe is that after a few days worth of shooting, i had the trigger jam up on me in semi, so i flicked it to full and away she went. But now she fires in full when the selector switch is in either the full or semi positions. Safe still works. I haven't taken her apart yet, but i was just wondering if any one else had had a similar problem?

Anywhoo, up until this little issue, the gun was absolutely amazing.


*EDIT* ok, so i figured out why she was firing in full auto. i had bought an 8.4 3600 mAh, and it would seem that its just too much for her...she works perfectly fine with my 8.4 2400.

And just as a side note, if anyone has an M14, the 3600 gives her one hell...and i mean ONE HELL of a ROF lol....

Skyone - Scope mount & suggested scope

Skyone. Very nice. Would be greatly appreciated if you could advise where to send away for the AK74 mount. You have been where I was about to go. A good scope also. Happy gaming. Let me know when you are coming up London way. I'd like to see this piece in real time.

Feeling like a babe in the woods. I have also found it difficult to find ICS AK 74 parts. Looked everywhere for the last 4 months (need new stock and butt plate. Sight fell off). Anyone come up with a good source. Thanks.

Regards, Stonewall

I'm working on it now, but there is a link somewhere with pictures. All i'm doing is using some 1mm thick sheet styrene from a hobby shop (the type ppl use for model railroads etc) and cutting a small piece to fit on the underside of the mag catch on each magazine. Glue it in place with something solid and file down the edges to give it a smooth action. Spray it with some black or wtv and away you go...

I'll have a look for the link..

I purchased one of these a few months ago and love it. It was easy to install and gives the AK a totally new look. I've had it on the gun without any problems and can now mount anything to the rifle. I purchased it from the US at AirsoftGI I think. I have some crappy pics here: http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=36430

This mod goes well with my load out and the contractor look I was going for.
Not many around and the company was sold out when last anyone checked.
