PostSubject: Aftermath Kraken AK47 AEG   Thu 14 Jun 2007, 8:23 pm

k let's just say that this is NOT a brand name AEG but I will say that it should be!

I just purchased this today as a loaner gun mainly for a friend. I was originally going to pick something up from soft air USA for him but I can't order any of the good guns in that I want until next year.

So stopping off at a local hunting place I spied this thing hanging behind the counter. I figured it was one of those soft air ones that shoot only 180fps and when I saw that it was $199.99 plus taxes a damned near shit. Soon after looking at the rear guns, I decided to look closer at it.

The moment the young guy handed it over I knew this was no softair. First, the package stated Adult Airsoft (lol) and then there was simply the weight, this damn thing is HEAVY! Granted not as heavy as my M14 but heavy as any other TM AEG I've held.

LOOKS:
First thing I noticed when looking at it was there was ALLOT of metal on this thing, thus the weight. The army green front grips and the full buttstock was misleading at first but they can be painted. Everything that is metal on a TM AK47 is metal on this one. The lower receiver is plastic (clear) BUT a metal kit is available from the company to replace the plastic one. The gear box is metal and can be seen through the clear lower receiver.

FIRST IMPRESSION:
Well the package was a bitch to get open... God I hate plastic. It also stated that the gun shoots 370fps. The first thing I did when reading that was look for the disclaimer. Allot of the softair guns now say the FPS and then in a disclaimer tell you with what weight of BBs. So upon close searching, 370fps with .2's! The gun has a few small creaks but those match the creaks and rattles found in a real AK anyways.

I took the gun out and laid it aside. Also in the package as a highcap which they state holds 110 rounds and is also clear. The gun also comes with a battery and charger. The nice thing about these is that it's an 8.4v 1200 mAH mini Ni-CD battery like everyone else uses in airsoft, some tips and everything. So took the battery out and hooked it up to my smart charger while I looked everything else over. Aside from all that it comes with 1000 rounds of .2 BB's, a cheap sling, and a cleaning rod

TEST FIRING:
Well I filled the clip up half way and wound it up. I took the gun outside, slapped the clip in and moved the selector switch to the middle position. I pulled the trigger and a rain of BB's came flying out the gun narrowly missing the dog running around the backyard. So after putting the dog inside and closing the door FIRMLY behind me this time, I picked the gun up again.

I'm not sure on the TM AK's but I thought the middle position wasa semi-auto. Here comes the first problem with the gun, I flicked the switch to the bottom position for semi-auto, pull the trigger and nothing happened. WTF? After moving the switch halfway between semi and full it worked. Ah well, who needs semi-auto anyways.

I noticed the BB's were flying upwards after about 20 feet so I pulled the chocking handle bank and found a simple to use Hopup control. A small white lever that you can move forward or back. Moved it forward abit and now my BB's are flying straight for a very long ways.

I decided I might as well try the dreaded popcan test to see roughly if this thing is anywhere near the FPS it claims. Let's just say that when I pulled the trigger while on semi auto that can didn't know whether to duck or not. It seemed that the can stood still and then at the last moment decided to run! I picked the can up off the grass and was surprised to find a clean hole in both sides of the can!

I switched from the BB's that came with the gun to MetalTech ones and the accuracy improved immediatly!

OVERALL:
Overall without having fielded it to any games I can't say too much but for everything it's done and acted so far, it seems that for the price there is no way you can go wrong! If you don't like the clear parts, just spray them black!

If you want guns that are cheaper and can be rented out without worry these are it! Powerful and good enough to stand up with brand name AEG's but cheaper!

Where was the local hunting store? W.L., Quesnel, Likely? I go through Q & WL often, I'll drop in...
I was in Bon Voyage in PG today and saw an AK similar to your description, although I never looked at it. prix was the same. They also had a M-16 type there that might have been the same brand. Again, no looky-touchy-feely.

The store was Frank's Supermarket in Quesnel. They have a large hunting section in the back corner. They are in large plastic sealed things with a blue cardboard sign inside. It says AfterMath on the bottom left and Kraken in the top left.

The package states:
Velocity: 370fps
Calibre: 6mm
Full & Semi Auto Action
110 rounds hicap
adjustable sights
steel barrel, body & frame
1000 rounds included
NIMH Battery and charger included
Adjustable hopup system

The funny part about the battery though is mine states it's a NICD battery, not an NIMH on the battery itself.

Mine is like the one pictured below BUT mine has the Army Green handguards and buttstock.

I just found out that TM internals are compatible with these gear boxes since the gear boxes are exact clones of TM gearboxes! I'm hoping to find out about the eternals like handguards and buttstocks soon. Ok I also got word that a G&P full metal body kit will work with these guns as well even though Aftermath makes their own.

So if it's just a clear body than can these be ordered in from across the border with no issues?

Also an TM AK body is pretty cheap and you can even get metal bodies for under $100. I know that buyairsoft.ca has these instock, EI has them (over priced as usual) but are there any left in Quesnel?

There are currently none left in Quesnel, and the store is having some trouble with the supplier (Northern Tackle). However, Chilcotin Guns in William's Lake is claiming they can get them in without problem for $10 less than they can be picked up for in Quesnel. The store here is continuing to try and bring guns/gear in for anybody interested, though.

As for buyairsoft and EI, be sure they are carrying the proper AK, not the "Stunt Studios" versions. Your looking at under 170fps with the Stunt Studio versions.

I know Wayne had one of these before I left. Might be worth while to head down to Company Quarter Masters...

Yes; the Stunt Studios versions are marked as such. Before putting out the money, though, be sure to take a closer look at the packaging and make sure there is no Stunt Studios decal. The variants can be viewed at the following link, but it looks like the right one.

I looked at them pretty close, but I was on a tight schedule, the mp5 looked cool, something I should mention is if you are seeking paint for plastics that won't rub off, check at Summit Power tools for "Lexan Paint", it's for painting bodies for R/C cars, it actually "bites" into the plastic lexan and is flexable so it doesn't crack. while there you might find a selection of batteries and chargers too, they deal mostly with gas powered r/c trucks but I haven't been there in awhile so they might stock more stuff. I will do a test with the lexan paint here this weekend, think I still have a can or two kicking around and see the results.

Just a note, Chilcotin Guns charges $189+taxes, not $199+taxes. Unless they spiked the price in the last two weeks or so.

I went back to E&I sports today with my digital cam to get a closer look at the cheapo airsoft stuff they had, the MP5 actually had a steel magazine and seemed to weigh almost as much as Daves G36. The hand gun had a neat clip the encased the co2 cylender and the ammo in one. Couldn't find any info on fps for the mp5 but it does have a hopup control.

I try to get to Summit Power tools tommorow if I get off early enough to price out battery packs, lexan paint and see if the stock Deans connectors. Also looking at the instruction manual for the MP5 it says "Insert 50 bullets supplied by Marui into the charger" so can I assume this is a chinese copy? or real deal in clear?

The reason why it weighs similar is that it has a huge lead weight in its butt.

I am very shy of anything that has a plastic mechbox, with plastic gears, and plastic cylinders...

I would completely recommend saving your money (if the thought on buying crossed your mind) and not even looking at this. For its price, and $100 more you can get something with metal parts and a metal mechbox.

The Kraken has metal guts, no worries there. Granted it is cheaper metals than say the TM, but all in all I was pleased with the Kraken. At $200+coin, and approx 370fps, its good for a beginner...not to mention its TM compatible. The one Drache bought (and has sold to Stev456) has had around 25 hi-caps put through it in various weather, and we are yet to have a problem with it.
