RX AKS-47 Blaster 🔥
The RX factory have built upon the success of their AKM blaster by adding an AKMS to the range. This version of the RX AKMS comes with metal gears and a high quality 11.1volt battery straight out of the box.
SO WHAT'S IN THE BOX?
- The blaster itself
- Upper rail (picatinny rail on top, two attachments for left and right side of front handguard)
- 11 volt bus lipo battery
- USB 11 volt charger
- Safety glasses
- One magazine
- Blue gels
The AKS is a little different to the previous AKM. This one comes with a folding rear stock that is alloy and sturdy. This blaster has the upgraded nylon gearbox with metal gears, and a metal internal barrel. It also has the same woodgrain finish with similar colours as the previous AKM.
SO WHAT DO WE RATE IT?
The RX AKS-47 an awesome looking blaster, with the folding stock and ability to fold it underneath all the way forward makes it an 8/10 for us!
This blaster is full automatic and runs on 11-volt, has the 480 mid motor and shoots around that 15-plus RPS straight out of the box. To see how this one shoots through the chrono check out Lee's video from 3:18! We rate this one a 7/10.
With the V3 gearbox, you can buy V3 boxes if you want to go down the metal route. You can change the gears, the RX AKS-47 does have different gears compared to V2's but they are still able to be found. It also has an alloy barrel, so we give this one an 8/10. It is a bit harder to mod compared to other blasters but a lot of the parts are out there if you'd like!
This blaster does have blowback still equipped, if you are doing full mag dumps you might get some long-term issues with some abuse in the blow back system. It does operate directly linking to the piston inside the gearbox so we can't stress enough: If you want this blaster to last long-term use it as directed. This one is an 8/10!
FOR WHERE & WHO?
This would be perfect for a cosplay or themed party, if you're a milsim player who loves to dress up too this is great!
PLEASE REMEMBER: STOP & THINK
Always be smart when carrying a gel blaster in public. Don’t forget to KEEP THEM BAGGED when travelling from events or anywhere outside of your home. Always use eye protection and be safe! We want blasters to be around long-term so make sure you’re doing the right thing.
