Why A&K?

A&K is considered to be an entry level airsoft gun manufacturer. However, they have some features that even manufactures like Tokyo Marui do not have, such as one-piece outer barrels and delta rings. One of the most affordable entry level AEG on the market.

First Impressions

We purchased an A&K M4 S-System just the other day and we were impressed on what we saw. This item is lighter than DBoys M4 CASV. It shipped with an 8.4v 1100mah mini battery and charger, cleaning rod, .2 BBs, hi-cap mag, front sight adjustment tool and blaze orange muzzle protector. We were surprised when we picked it up for the first time. No flex to speak of, and the sights are top notch, with both a long range precision and close combat peep.

Not the typical cheap AEG

Metal. Metal everywhere. A lot of the RIS parts are constructed of metal. The outer barrel, which seems to be one piece, is all metal. The sights are metal. The buffer tube and charging handle are metal. So is the dust cover. At first glance, even looks alone say “Not cheap”. The only detractor there is the A&K stuff on the side of the lower receiver. The receiver (both upper and lower) is plastic, and looks like the same stuff TM uses. The hop up is located under a faux bolt which is exposed by pulling the charging handle to release the dust cover. The 6 position collapsible stock, while nice looking, is a tad loose on the buffer tube. Although we haven’t torn it down yet, the gearbox is definitely a TM style metal gearbox, and this thing is absolutely 100% TM compatible.
