Hey friends! 

Welcome back to the blog! I hope you’re safe and well! Today I’m back with another tactical AK review and this time we’re looking at the G&G Armament GT Advanced RK74-CQB from Extreme Airsoft

All the way back in 2016, G&G released the RK74 line of AKs that consists of the CQB, E and T variants. In 2017, I reviewed the G&G GT Advanced RK74-T and whilst I enjoyed using this tactical AK, it was a bit long/heavy for my needs as a CQB player. Fast forward to 2021 and I’ve got my hands on the RK74-CQB variant after running it on the Extreme Airsoft speed course I can now give you my thoughts on this airsoft AEG. 

Firstly let’s chat about how it looks! The G&G RK74-CQB is constructed from mostly metal - it has an alloy flash hider/amplifier, rail/handguard and an alloy receiver. The pistol grip, stock and magazine are all made from a lightweight polymer. It has a 7” keymod handguard that features top and bottom 20mm RIS rails and it also has the G&G GOS-V2 M4 stock which has a storage compartment for batteries and a rubber butt plate for comfort when shouldering the weapon.

In regards to internals, it is capable of Semi, 3-Round Burst (thanks to the preinstalled MOSFET) and full-auto firing modes. Alongside the MOSFET, it also features G&G’s ETU (Electronic Trigger Unit) which gives you a better trigger response. This means it’s faster and prevents the gearbox from locking on single shot - which is good news for those of us who play at strictly single-shot sites! To change the Full Auto Fire mode to Three Round Burst you simply have to switch the selector to Semi-Auto Made and hold the Trigger for 10 Seconds. I chrono’d this weapon on 0.2g BB and it varied between a respectable 342-346 FPS. It has a linear hop-up unit (which I actually prefer to a rotary style hop-up) that can be accessed by the ambidextrous charging handle and it is front-wired to mini-Tamiya. The battery compartment is quite roomy which opens up battery options, and it has a hinge to open/close which makes it so much easier to battery up than a regular AK! As it has a built-in MOSFET I used an 11.1mAh Lipo. 

What about its field performance? It’s MUCH smaller than the T variant so this compact AEG was a dream to put through the speed course. It’s also a lot lighter so wasn’t as taxing as its lengthy counterpart. It fired consistently with no issues on both semi and full auto mode. Overall I think it’s a great rifle for the price, if I could change anything about it, I would probably update the rail to an MLOK rail system to update the look.

From Extreme Airsoft the RK74-CQB is £299.99 but you can use my code ‘femmefatale’ for a 5% discount.
