the AKM looks like it takes the ak74 mag in place of the m4 mag
Says on the specs they take most m4/m16 mags.
I think the akm is a couple inches longer and has different internals but not 100% on that one so asking you guys

It can't be helped anyway, the AK mag feed point it in the wrong place
The AKM hdas the short barrel, collapsible stock and obviously the AKM lower. Internally it is supposed to have a better trigger response and better motor

I would go with the ACR but there's not much in it

If you have m4 mags get the standard acr.
If you don't or intend to buy new mags anyway get the AKM

On the whole they both use proprietary mags anyway - P/Emags and the AKM mags, the ACR being able to use SOME M4/16 mags, but they can have feed issues using non-magpul mags due to fast cycling.
AKM will not even hold an AK mag, they simply don't fit. feed hole in the wrong place.
AKM mags fit into M4 pouches at the same scale of 1xM4=1xAKM
AKM has a shorter barrel and folding stock.
AKM has larger mags (160rds over 120rds)
There are no hop up issues in either gun, only A&K models have them.
Range/accuracy is very similar between the two models. Only with propper measuring in a controlled environment could anyone genuinely tell the difference between them.
AKM is more expensive (by £50) due to the barrel difference (new barrels are £110) and a different (better) stock (retails for £80) - do the math.
Out of the box absolutely nothing has to be done to it, some people insist on putting a tightbore in them, but all that does is ruin the airseal from the factory for no noticeable gain in performance.
AKM does have different motor and trigger setup (some fine tuning I believe) and appears to - extensive test firing of both models - give a sharper trigger response, but neither rifle is sluggish.
If you play CQB get the AKM.
If you play woodland, get whichever you prefer the looks of.
Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.
Resident Patrol Base Techy, any questions about PB, message me and I'll do my best to answer.

Can the stock of the AKM take a bigger battery?
The battery goes in thr handguard.
Thanks for clearing that stuff up Dave
