AK47 black sniper rifle with scope and bi-pod by AKing

Today I'm going to review a popular low cost AK47 spring rifle.


  • Push button clip release holds 50 BB's 

  • Includes: 20-pc. 6mm BB's

  • scope

  • bipod 

  • Length 30" 

  • Shoots at 275 FPS with .12g BB's

  • The gun comes completely disassembled, but is very easy to assemble.  This is part of why it is so cheap.  The gun's quality is easily comparable to some more expensive rifles.  It has a sort of rough finish, but the spring is powerful and the construction is durable.  The scope is just for show but makes an effective peep sight.  It is also about half the size of a real AK, which makes it perfect for younger kids.  Powerful enough to shoot .2g bbs effectively, it makes a decent outdoor weapon as well.

    Keep it real,

    Beretta spring airsoft pistol M997 UK ARMS

    So today I am going to review on of the cheapest airsofts on the market, a UK Arms M997.

    First, as always, the facts:

  • Push button clip release holds 8 BB's 

  • Includes 10 pc. 6mm BB's 

  • Length: 6" 

  • Shoots at 95 FPS with .12g BB's

  • Because of the price, quality of these guns ranges from one to another.  But of all the cheap pistols I've seen, these typically have the best quality control.  That being said insist that your online retailer tests the gun before he or she ships it.  The wholesaler often sells broken guns to it's retailers and expects them to cover the cost, or sell the broken guns.  Although I do not sell guns I know to be broken, I'm sure its happened to a number of unsuspecting ebay buyers.

    The gun itself is pretty good for a cheap gun.  I've had mine for a few weeks and it hasn't broken.  I take very good care of my guns though...  These are more durable than the other 95 fps guns on the market, I say that from experience of other guns which broke during normal use.

    Styling is cool if you like the berretta, and the trigger guard is big enough for my chubby fingers, which is unusual in this price tag.

    Performance is to be expected.  Good indoor gun, wont break your stuff and doesn't hurt too bad.  That being said it is too under powered to fire .2g bbs with any distance.  If you want to shoot outdoors, i recomend a more powerful gun.  

    This gun typically retails for 7 or 8 dollars, but can be found cheaper online:

    G9 Premium Spring Pistol

    The guns I've reviewed so far have been cheaper plastic guns.  The G9 is metal except for the grips and magazine.  This pocket pistol will fit in the palm of your hand.  In a pair of cargo shorts you could fit about 8 of them.  The gun feels amazing, easy to cock, good quality materials.  For a pistol with a 3 inch barrel it is very accurate.  Accurate enough to hit a can at about 30-40 ft outside with .2 g bbs.  I put about 300 bbs through it the other day without any problems.  It is also capable of firing like a shotgun, and is still fairly effective when firing 2 bbs instead of 1.  James bond himself would be proud of this awesome little spy pistol.

    For those of you who are familiar it reminds me of Archer's underwear gun:

    CYMA Pump shotgun 1:1 scale 265 fps Mossberg 500 style

    Not much to say about this one.

    Its key feature is its one to one scale size and excellent appearance.  I have a real mossberg 500 that i compared to this one.  The proportions are right and this one is actually a bit bigger than the real one.

    It shoots well, accurate and powerful.  CYMA knows how to make a good airgun

    M16B spring gun with laser

    I'll start with the facts, these are the specs given by the wholesaler:
    • Push button clip release holds 75 BB's 
    • Includes 20-pc. 6mm BB's
    • Laser sight for improved accuracy and target aquisition
    • 1/1 scale
    • Length: 27"
    • Shoots at 240 FPS with .12g BB's 

    Now for the fun part, my opinion:

    1/1 scale is simply not true... this is a small gun, good for a kid or small person.  I'm 6'1" and its rather small for me.

    Quality is surprisingly good.  The laser is very bright and mounts securely.  Plastic is very good quality.  I was worried about the charging handle breaking from the spring.  But I've put several mags through the gun and everything still works fine.  With guns like this it's unusual to see them last much more than an hour of play.  Not the case with this.  Proper care would let this rifle live a long, healthy life

    Accuracy and power are what is to be expected.  I only use .2s, which helps with accuracy and power over distance.  The gun is accurate and powerful enough to be used outdoors, but this rifle is better suited to indoor use.

    For the next week this link will be good, otherwise contact me for info on this rifle

    Mission Statement

    One of my housemates owns a small airsoft business.  He sells mostly spring guns, but has just gotten int o AEG's and the like and asked me to review some of his products for him.  As a blogger, airsofter and gun person, I'm happy to oblige.
