You left the KWA brand out of your review and i was wondering: Why? I would be interested of hearing more about the KWA brand and if anyone has any "real" information please do share. If we are making a post about "AEG Brand Breakdown" than we should include all of the brands we can right?
I've had my CYMA Thompson for about two years. Its been good to me, no jams or breakdowns. I guess I'll see how long it lasts.
I know a friend who bought a CA M14, something was wrong with it and he sent it in to get fixed. After that it started shooting bad again. On the other hand they also have a CA M16 which has had no problems at all. Seems to be inconsistent. Externally both are nice guns though. I'd probably stay away from CA, too inconstant for their price.

Well since I owned a KWA at one point I will also share that.
In the fall of 08 I got my first AEG and after much research I had decided on the Gen1 KWA M4A1, since I had a job and loads of free time I thought I would buy it. Looking back I realize I shoul hvar bought a cheaper gun due to my noobieness and lust for customization. But I won't focus on that.
The gun is very durable and has a fantastic gearbox, running a 9.6 nunchuck we were able to achieve about 1100 rpm and an effective range of over 200ft during my first airsoft season I sighted my gun using KSC .25's and was nailing a 12 oz pop can at approx 130 ft 8/10 times. The hopup is a 2 piece and allows for a realistic breakdown of the gun and easy cleaning
all if the internal and external parts are top notch and the plastic feels better than my uncles bushmaster M4gery. If you have the cash...get it
A word of wisdom. DON'T try to rewire your gun, disassemble your gun or do anything stupid, the only acceptable upgrades are the hopup and a ris
Guys, this isn't a thread for individual gun reviews. Post up a review thread if that's your aim. But a sample size of one or two guns isn't nearly large enough to gather information for a thread about quality trends across companies. It's not that your information isn't valuable, but it belongs elsewhere.

In the case that some companies may have improved or lost their touch. Like I have been told and read that cyma has top notch quality ak's (dont qoute it, its just what I heard). That type of thing. I'm no expert so if I'm wrong no hard feelings.
why do I have the feeling that I just stepped on some toes.
You haven't stepped on any toes brother. Whomever told you CYMA has top notch quality AK's is VERY uninformed. CYMA's AK's are subpar at best, but do deserve some recognition for their AK externals which I've heard are decent.
Ghast, I have to disagree. Both Dahm and I have owned CYMA (technically DBoys... I think they're pretty much the same thing though) AK74Us and we have both been quite impressed. Just make sure you get the "full" metal/wood version, not the plastic one. I mean, sure it's not going to be as nice as as VFC or another high-level brand AK, but for the price they are pretty good.
In that sense, you are right, it's probably not a bad idea to update this thread. It's just that you said "hey, update the thread" which doesn't mean a whole lot, which is why I was asking what you would like updated. Thanks though, if I get some time (or another Mod sees this), the original post should get updated a bit.
