solid AK platforms?

Looking at potentially dipping my feet into the AK realm and was curious about brands to look at. I love the look of the VFC AK-74m.

AK experts?

If you get a Real Sword, you'll never look back.

Real Sword is good but has limited lineup. I think they make only 2 variants. Both with Chinese receivers. VFC is pretty good manufacturer with large lineup. I own a VFC for many years. Solid, problem free AEG. RS does have a feeling of a real rifle. I guess because of the way they treat metal and wood at the factory but it was never my thing. I guess I like Russian AK's more.

I can't believe no one mentioned LCT and E&L yet...

Oh, and if you want GBBR, there's also the WE AK PMC or AKS74UN if you want full travel bolt, or GHK, which is also a great choice for other reasons.

Looking for AEG. E&L was recommended to me. Does anyone have any information on them?

Solid, apparently made on a factory that produces real AK's (EMEI), internals by Land Arms. In some countries (Some Western European and many Eastern European) comes in a bag filled with oil, similarly to a real firearm.

From others, heard that while they are still not as good as Real Sword, they are quite a piece of hardware, mainly competing with LCT for the market of AK's. Keep in mind though, that Real Sword does not have the amount of models E&L carries: almost any AK your heart can desire is carried by E&L.

Just my 5 cents.

I've owned many Ak's including a real sword and a E&L. The E&L is a great gun for the money. Externally it's the same or better then a real sword. Internally they are pretty solid too. I buy guns based on external quality internals are easily beefed up. I highly recommend any of the E&L Ak's. Having owned both I'd go e&l. Like I said same or better externally and a lot cheaper.

VFC or E&L. Ive had tons of VFC guns, while I have heard great things about E&L. Don't forget to mention CYMA. I know they are a lower tier weapon but, are pretty good, considering the price.

Yeah if you are going to go AEG then E&L is a great choice. I've owned a AKS74U briefly, and it was amazing in the quality and accuracy dept.

Friends don't let friends by CYMA.

If anyone wants to go budget route than go with Dboys, at least it's a clone of VFC, has realistic take-down and offers deluxe edition with all steel parts unlike Cyma, which is mix of steel, pot metal, aluminum and is a clone of Tokyo Marui.
