This is good gun for beginner, but for really cheaper you have the regminton pipe for only 1200, and it cause 53 domage; the kalchnikov II, for 4900, does only make 30 domages. Do not care about the speed, that isn't really important and the AK II is slow to shoot too. If you are a beginner, and you have 4900, do not spend them in this bad gun, just buy the regminton pipe and economize then rest for a beter gun. I just think that can be a good weapon for noob because it's very simple to use. : P

I think the best way to use your money when you're quite poor is to buy:

-Regminton pipe              .1200

-Simonov Pistol                .12500

-Simonov ray rifle             .28000
