DTP Metal body for AK

Just picked this up from Jugglez on his group order.

Packaging wasn't great - just the body inside some bubble wrap in a cardbaord box, but you don't really need to much more than that. It didn't have any scratches on it when I got it. Out of the box, it's beautiful. Colour and finish seem to match the TM plastic body quite well, except it's solid as all hell and heavy! Trades match the marui precisely as well, except it lacks the Tokyo Marui and ASGK trades, so how can you complain!

Installation was VERY easy, and required absolutely zero modifications to the AK or the body. The rifle is now solid as a steel bar (with this body plus a G&P Wood Kit which includes a metal front end - reviewed here: http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=30131), and looks very real to my eye.

I'll add some pics later.

I also have the DTP metal body on my AK47. Most people say that the screws dont line up properly. Mine were off a tiny bit but didnt really mater much, I still got it to fit on my G&P metal front end.

The body has a grey paint job out of the box. Not very pretty. I painted mine black almost right away. Looks great now!

Having had my hands on a lot of other metal bodies for the AK, I can easily say this is the heaviest body of them all. I would guess it to be almost twice as heavy as the CA metal body.

Biggest problem I have with mine is the magazine well. I think its a bit to large. My TM magazines really rattle around a lot. Ill usually just put my hand on my magazine when Im on the move and need to be quite. But honestly it really bothers me. Other then that I would buy it again without hesitation. Its a great metal body at a great price.
