Our take: The newest production run enhanced JG AK47 Tactical RIS AEG with a built-in RIS system is one of the most versatile (and also one of the most well-rounded) AEGs that JG manufactures. It's a great choice for your primary AEG because of it exceeds in the 3 basic selection criteria: 1) POWER/ACCURACY, 2) RELIABILITY, and 3) VALUE.
The Custom package adds:
- Diamond Tactical Precision 2x42 Red Dot Zooming Sight Unit
This is one of the most sought-after rifle scopes on the market due to the fact that it combines the advantages of a red-dot aiming system with those of a traditional zooming scope. Diamond Tactical's ultra high-quality 2x42 Red Dot zooming scope allows for a helpful 2x optical zoom, while maintaining a 7-intensity adjustable RED DOT at the center of the scope. That way, you can quickly acquire targets as you would with a standard red dot, but have the extra 2x zoom for more accurate shots/target acquisitions. Comes with flip-up/flip-down front and rear covers to protect your lens when not in use.
- Tactical Field V4 Flashlight
This lightweight, ergonomic flashlight doesn't weigh down the rifle but yet delivers a solid beam of illumination for better visibility in darkened areas (especially woods and indoors). Comes with mount pre-installed.
It's one of the best deals on the market for a full size, full metal gearbox AK47 RIS, and the fact that this is the lastest enhanced model from JG (with reinforced gearbox, internals, and an upgraded ultra high-torque motor) means it is a serious power plant that doesn't make compromises. You get HIGH POWERED and ACCURATE shots out at sky-high rate of fire (over 800 rounds/minute) and you get the reliability that is synonymous with the JG brand. Its muzzle velocity even overpowers AK47 rifles from the likes of Tokyo Marui and ICS (both of which cost over $250).
But of course, the fact that it kicks the butts of rifles costing more than DOUBLE its price drives home the fact that at the end of the day, IT'S A JG. The combination of its solid, re-engineered and more-robust-than-ever JG V3 gearbox and its silky smooth ultra high-torque motor is undoubtedly the secret behind this rifle's success.
Other features include adjustable hop up, adjustable sights, and a solid rear stock for maximum performance and comfort. With full aftermarket/OEM parts compatibility, this AEG can be easily customized and upgraded. The rail system further adds onto the upgrade potential of this gun, since you can add an almost endless amount of tactical accessories to it, including flashlights, scopes, lasers, and grenade launchers.

Battery Charger Recommendation: Although this fully automatic airsoft rifle comes with a standard wall charger to charge the battery, Airsoft Megastore recommends the use of a smart charger to avoid overcharging the battery (overcharged batteries may cause decreased airsoft gun performance and may shorten battery life significantly). Smart chargers not only shorten charge time significantly (up to 800% faster charging), but more importantly, also automatically shut off once the battery is fully charged to avoid overcharged batteries.
