CYMA keep on kicking out some great models in their “09” series, and we have to say that we love ’em as they’re great performers at a great price!

TAIWANGUN just let us know that they have some super bargains available at the moment, and amongst these is the CM.097E UPGRADED VERSION; we’ve looked CLOSE at the 097 before, but this model comes with the “PDW stock” setup and looks spot on! The lower receiver, the upper receiver, the sliding stock, the external barrel, the fire selector, the magazine release button, the trigger, the charging handle, and the front and rear sight are all made in aluminum, and each model has a unique serial number.

· 9″ external barrel, with a precision 6.03mm inner barrel
· 8″ aluminum MLOCK handguard
· aluminum A3 flat top upper receiver
· aluminum lower receiver
· aluminium 6-position PDW stock
· polymer pistol grip
· folding sight set
· dummy flash suppressor with a 14mm thread CCW
· ambidextrous sling mount plate
· AN/PEQ15 QD type battery box

The 097E is in the new E-EDITION HIGH-SPEED configuration which has a velocity of around 360fps stock and, in combination with a LiPo battery, a ROF around 25rps and a fast trigger response. This has been achieved with new internal parts with increased durability, such as:

· reinforced V2 gearbox frame with quick spring change system
· processor unit with built-in MOSFET system
· full steel teeth polycarbonate piston
· CNC machined steel gear set (ratio: 13:1)
· 8mm ball bearings
· CNC machined aluminum silent cylinder and piston head set (ball bearing piston head, double o-ring cylinder head)
· ball bearing spring guide
· a high-speed motor

So, if you’re in the market for a new AEG that’s going to go hard out of the box, we’d say that this is definitely worth looking at!
