Need info/opinions CYMA CM028 AK47
« on: September 24, 2012, 07:27:18 AM »
As some of you know I have a Javelin M4 that I got in a box of mystery.  I have a gentleman who is wanting to trade me his CYMA CM028 AK47 (which he has fielded 4 times) straight across for my gun. 

Is this a good trade?  (please give me details/reasons why or why not)

You guys never let me down so Im looking forward to your responses!

CYMA makes great AK's. It just seems like that's what they make best. The CM028 is currently one of CYMA's most basic models and is not very glamorous with it's fake wood stock and I'm pretty sure they have plastic bodies. If your M4 is one of the electric blowback versions, I'd trade if it were me. I've seen too many if those Javelin EB m4's just not perform too well and poop out. I'm an AK fanboy though, so keep that in mind when you consider my advice.

Well Metal its funny you say that, the javelin got its legs broke at its first out of the box experience at SoGo.  Travis was using it and was as gentle as he usually is (gentle is read as:  ZOMG BBQ SAUCE SMASH SMASH RRRARAHHHHHH IM TRAVIS) and somewhere in all of that love the gearbox literally exploded (no really it blew apart).  So I actually sent it back to whom it was purchased from and they rebuilt the gun with new parts (non Javelin) and sent it back to me, in the end it got a new gearbox, new piston, new hopup, new barrel, new trigger assembly.  So the gun is practically brand new.

I did talk to the guy today and its the black version with the folding stock, Im going to trade him for my M4 and $30 I believe. 

I still want input on this guys, any opinions are welcome, even the bad ones.

Ummm, very yes? From what I've heard, CYMA Ak's are supposed to be pretty rock solid. Any weapon that explodes its gearbox straight out of the package should be dumped asap. Also, I'm not a huge fan of M4's unless they are old school xm177's or M733's. I'd say goodbye to that dirty harlot of a gun and boot it out the door.

            What! I totally didnt smash it(hater  :P)... it was a love tap... but for real though trade it hands down. 2 reasons:
1) AK's are just like m4's there is just a ton of stuff out there for them. Which makes it easy to fix if something goes wrong on it.
2)Its a jav ... there is no suger coating it!

             To be fair i have never in my life ever thought that anything would be below a CYMA or Double Eagle weapon. To my suprise javlin really wanted that title REALLY BAD.
             
             Also seeing as you(we) had problems with the gun and you already have invested money in it there is only one question... does the gun make you happy or would like to try something else. This is the reason why i have not let my dear betsie die... anyway that was a little off subject. Point being i do believe the trade is in your best intrest for your airsoft pleasure! I dont know about you but i am not one to like the Airsoft ulser so... do what makes you happy sir.

For what it's worth ($0.02), go with the AK. ;)

Mcclane, glad to know I'm not the only 177/733 fan! Now back on topic...

Ok so I did the trade today, and here's what I got:



It came with a battery, folding stock, and front grip.  I traded my Javelin M4...gun only, I got the AK, a battery, and a 500rd hicap....

So what do you think?

I agree. Good trade. I've had to do a lot of work on my Jav 933 to get it running smoothly. AK's are a tough rifle to beat in the field, thanks to their range and hop up response. I don't foresee any regret in your future.
