Bringing Realism to the Next Level:
The A&K Full Metal MK58 Tactical RIS Carbine AEG feels extremely realistic, with high quality full metal externals.

A&K's NEW MK58 Tactical RIS Carbine AEG is built to perform in the roughest airsoft scenarios, with its durable full metal body, full metal railed hand guard, barrel and magazine. This AEG has a durable full metal folding stock, which easily folds to the side turning the MK58 into the perfect room clearing CQB AEG. Because of the compact design of this AEG, the battery storage is located in an external PEQ box, which makes it easy to swap out batteries while at the field. The mechanical functions of the A&K MK58 make this AEG feel even more realistic, with a fully functioning charging handle, bolt catch lever, magazine release, and selector switch. The charging handle easily locks to the rear, providing easy access to adjust your hop-up. Pressing the bolt catch lever (when the charging handle is locked to the rear) instantly shoots the charging handle and bolt cover door home, with a realistic and audible SNAP!
Another realistic feature is the selector switch, which is one of the most solid that we have come across and fully locks into each firing setting. The placement of the magazine release is perfect for speed reloads, located directly in front of the trigger well within easy reach with your trigger finger. The A&K MK58 Tactical RIS Carbine also features an extremely durable full metal rail system that is perfect for mounting a variety of accessories including optics, vertical fore grips, flashlights, lasers, PEQ boxes and even grenade launchers! The only non metal external part of the A&K MK58 Tactical RIS Carbine AEG is the comfortable and contoured rifle grip. This A&K AEG is built to the same high standards as AEGs costing nearly twice as much, however those high end AEGs don't come with any additional accessories.

FEEL THE DIFFERENCE: A&K's Newest and Best Production Run Model
Due to recent changes in A&K management and a new manufacturing team and improved equipment, A&K products are better than ever before. Now owned by a Japanese specialty hobby-product manufacturer, A&K's quality control is on par with precision Japanese-manufactured Airsoft guns (see: Tokyo Marui). The bar for product performance and overall build quality has been raised countless times during this transition in management, and the result is in the finished product.
With an ultra high-quality build and improved performance throughout the product line, the latest production-run AEGs from A&K are a home run. MAKE SURE when you're comparison shopping to do your homework, as there are MANY examples of A&K AEGs on the market with PRE-June 2011 production dates, signifying that they are still the OLDER production run model.

Battery Charger Recommendation: Although this fully automatic airsoft rifle comes with a standard wall charger to charge the battery, 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 more importantly, also automatically shut off once the battery is fully charged to avoid overcharged batteries.
