the turbo 3000 motor and the reinforced gearbox make it highly upgradeable and also very quick firing

the gun in evike is the newer one and they give you battery and charger for free =D

Its a US site. They might not know our laws, so they wanted to share it with use.

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey, I ordered the Ak74 this week from M1 airsoft. Now im not 100% which motor it comes with since It might be an old version motor (2000), instead of the (3000) motor.

Im actually getting kinda scared with receiving thois product now, because if the 2000 motor is in the gun then I have no clue what to do. And so I hope everything is alright.

Anyone order the Ak74 off M1 Airsoft recently and know what motor is in it???

Please let me know ASAP THANKS!!!

I just placed an order for a new version from DEA and all he has is the new version apparently. You can always contact them and find out. M1 is aprt of this "Airsoft Alliance" thing, so perhaps you'll get the new version as well.

I got mine a few days ago,and the gun is very solid.
However,the stock is not as strong as i thought,it could be better.
Other than that,it is a very nice weapon .

Hey yeah...just waititng for mine to come...

I heard it will come tomorrow or thursday.

Got a 1700mah battery nicad to test it out with. Hopefully it will go alright.

I heard many ICS products have problems, and I hope this ICS Ak74M is the exception.

Has anyone else had any problems lately??? (Clips, battery death, etc)

Let me know. THX

First of all,you can ask them which motor you are getting?
If you receive a ak74m with turbo2000,you can buy a turbo3000 motor and replace it.
PS:turbo2000 should be a fine motor as well,you can use the gun for a while and decide if you really need to upgrade or not.

According to them, they say the 3000 motor is in the AK, just wondering if there are any other problems, or anything else.

Also which bb's u recommend (if youve tried multiple companies) that work the best.

Mine got in yesterday. No creak or wobble on most parts, yet the upper receiver and front handle may rattle a little when the gun is hardly swung around. Very heavy, wouldn't use it one-handed!

Got STAR Ak-47 mags and the two ICS hicap. The star mags works flawlessly with a tight fit. The ICS hicaps are a little tricky: they seem to not always seal on the nozzle in the magwell so the bb don't always feed properly. I don't know if I just got a finicky mag as the other one fed well when pushed tight and held in the magwell (the fitting is not as tight as with the star mags and it seems to me that the hicap is kind of "falling down" little as if the mag release system didn't held it right).

The hop-up is idiot-proof easy to adjust as well as very sensitive. I think I'll be able to figure some 2 or 3 point sling as you got a ring on the stock and a smaller one on the front handle just before the outer barrel.

I also bought the ICS scope mount. Easy to install as one-two-three as the mount base is already riveted to the frame. The sights were easily adjustable without using excessive strenght ( the tool worked well ). A negative point is that the plastic parts have a fragile finish: it is very easy to scratch the stock or handle. The mat finish seems less durable than my TM famas one. At first the gun looks wery hermetic, without major way in for rubble and dust, but remember that scrap can come in under the upper receiver when you take the fire selector down to semi or auto.

I used Excel and ICS bb's without any problem. I didn't chronoed it, but had at least 60 feet (I don't judge that well) of effective range on a rainy slightly windy day.

I'll be working on a wood kit fot it this summer... giving it a AK-47 look...
