I know that every gun is different, so to keep this question simple I'm looking at all AK's and M4's. To the question then, How would you, depending on if it's a AK or M4, would you add a RIS/RAS to either a AK or M4? Also if either the AK or M4 in question is front wired how would you make it rear wired? Finally is it difficult to add a RIS/RAS and, if need be, make the AK or M4 rear wired? Any and ALL feedback would be helpful thanks a lot.

I mean. It really is different for most RISes, the basic idea is get the barrel nut off and replace it when adding a different RIS (speaking for M4s)it's relatively simple to add an RIS but taking off a Delta ring can be difficult depending on what style you got/gas tube.
The rear wiring I believe is mostly having the correct wiring. I've seen sets that you can buy off of Evike, so you could check there. I am also pretty sure that you have to go into the gearbox and replace the wiring and make it come out the back end of the gearbox so that it'll either come out of the receivers or the buffer tube. I don't know much about teching, but I hope I could help.

Rewiring a v2 or v3 gearbox will require disassembling the gun, opening the gearbox, and unless you bought a special kit you will have to have tools and know-how to solder. You will also want to make sure the wire you got will handel the batteries and motor your using in the gun. There's videos on youtube about this stuff, and researching amperage/voltage/wire gage will help.
The RIS/RAS question is unanswerable without a specific model for the gun and RIS you're installing. M4s are very different from AKs, different manufactures do things different ways, metal body guns can be different than ABS/poly bodies even if they're the same brand, some guns look like the can take after market RIS but they actually can't without replacing the receive/body. Some are very easy "drop-in RIS" that take minutes to install, others can take an hour or more and near complete disassembly of the gun. Everything depends on brand and model.

Yup, that's a drop-in RIS; should be an easy install, assuming that gun uses standardized parts and it has a real steel style delta ring (that UTG rail is a real steel RIS). You can also find that rail as cheap as $25 through real steel sites.
[Edit] There's a Q&A section for that gun. Ask them if it has a real steel type delta ring before buying that UTG rail.
