The Tokyo Marui AK74MN is a modernized AK74, with differences in build material and furniture to make the weapon lighter and more comfortable to use than the AKS74 (S standing for the folding stock version of the AK74). You will immediately notice the main difference from the classic AK74 in the color and material of the foregrip and stock. Where previously there was wood, which was heavy and prone to damage and rot, now there are polymer grips, with lines for extra grippyness. Tokyo Marui has set out to replicate this new, updated version of an age old design and at the same time, design a next-generation AEG with features that are the first of its kind, including a brand new gearbox, blowback system and even a recoil engine.
The overall build of the gun is top quality. There is no plastic parts where metal should be and all the plastic is high quality, impact resistant ABS. There are no creaky bits or flexing on the gun, this is one piece of robust engineering. The receiver is a replica of the stamped type receiver, correct for the AK74M and features full markings, and rivets in their correct positions. The bolt also has markings on it that match the serial number found on the left side of the gun.
In conclusion the Tokyo Marui AK74MN is the pioneer in AEG design being the first AEG to feature recoil and reliability at the same time. The new gearbox design is excellent and runs great straight out of the box, even with the added stress of the recoil weight and blowback. Tokyo Marui's switch from plastic to metal makes this one heck of a solid gun. And it is certainly deserving of the label of the next generation airsoft gun.
