loving the factory worn look and the color of the wooden foregrip. a wooden pistol grip will bring the unicorn together nicely.

Wood pistol gripped AKS-74Us never existed from what I know. Atleast I've never seen one, but I'd love to be proved wrong.

AKS-74 with wood grips yes, but the U, never seen it.

Yep, that's the one. I'm sure I can find a replacement or just substitute a split ring for the meantime, just pisses me off that I've lost something on it already.

I'm very impressed, at least 50 meters and usually a bit more. Accuracy at that range isn't fantastic but controlled bursts are enough to hit man-sized targets. I was given much praise on how nasty the gun sounded when firing, and with the stock wiring/battery it gave a nice AK rate of fire that added to the effect.

Andrew if you want, I could make your Cyma look like the unicorn one
How? Blueing doesn't work on non-ferrous metals. I don't mind it the way it is; it's "parkerized!"

i like the CYMA for being able to use TM parts
but i like the unicorn for the look and if read right and bob was right its a VFC clone,

Not sure as I haven't cracked open either gearbox, and I don't plan to unless something either breaks or - more likely - I downgrade one for CQB play. I would have to vote for the CYMA though for reliable internals. Their latest boxes are said to be copies of Systemas, and while I doubt quality is up to the same par they've been running in several different models very well and are well regarded. I am definitely not disappointed with the performance of mine.

Oh, I thought you were asking how they fed instead of how many.
To be honest, I don't know- ballpark estimate between 30-50? I only gamed the hicap once, now it's primarily lows or mids.
