Our take: Laying down suppressive fire is a key tactic used by NATO forces that has also proven to be tried-and true in airsoft. But thanks to CYMA’s RPK X-Gen series LMG — which now comes fully equipped with a upgraded RIS handguard — doing so just got easier. Measuring more than 42 inches long, this full length AEG is nearly identical in length to the real steel RPK. While this makes it authentic in appearance, weight will be the least of your worries. The receiver is completely made out of lightweight polymer material, making it weigh down to 7.5 pounds. This reduces player fatigue and makes it ideal for longer games. Unlike CYMA’s previous version of the RPK, this modern light machine gun offers more than 14 inches of combined rail space for mounted scopes, sights and other optics. To maintain ruggedness, the outer barrel and retractable bipod are fully metal. With a CYMA Version 3 VPower gearbox under the hood, this AEG peaks at a commanding 440 FPS (w/ 0.20g BBs). And for under $200, you can’t go wrong with this X-Gen series RPK. Lastly, a full metal M4-style flash hider adds a nice finishing touch to this modern LMG.

Battery Charger Recommendation: Airsoft Megastore recommends the use of a smart charger to avoid overcharging the battery (overcharged batteries may cause decreased airsoft gun performance and may shorten battery life significantly). Smart chargers not only shorten charge time significantly (up to 800% faster charging) but also automatically shut off once the battery is fully charged to avoid overcharged batteries.
