Our take: We've just received the NEWEST shipment of these AK47s, and they do not disappoint.
JG has beefed up the internals, improved the build quality, and overall, the rifle is SOLID. It remains as one of the most durable and versatile AEGs that JG manufactures for under $150, and features reinforced internals that are on par with the very best on the market for model year 2012 and beyond.
A precision polished tight bore barrel has been installed to further improve upon both durability and accuracy. It holds an excellent balance between power, accuracy, and reliability like many of the more expensive AEGs out on the market, but just without the big price tags to match. We have chronograph verified this to shoot an average of 390-400 FPS with 0.20g BBs, with a full FPS range of 380 - 410 FPS. With a muzzle velocity that overpowers even Tokyo Marui AEGs and its JG V3 gearbox, this AK47 airsoft rifle is ready to rock and roll. Other features include adjustable hop up, adjustable sights, and a solid rear stock for battery storage.
With full Tokyo Marui parts compatibility and many other aftermarket upgrade parts compatibility, the JG AK47 with full metal gearbox can be easily customized and upgraded. This AEG has an insane rate of fire that you have just got to experience for yourself! Also comes with a 600-round high-capacity magazine!
QUALITY ASSURANCE: Through numerous factory visits, we are able to confirm that JG tests EACH and EVERY single AEG that they ship out by putting each unit through a rigorous 16-point inspection, which ends with a Q.C. agent shooting no less than 450 rounds from the rifle to ensure quality before exiting the factory (hence sometimes buyers may find a BB or two left in their mag, as a result of the Quality Control agent's test firing). This gives us even more confidence that JG is ever-increasing their attention paid to quality, and is a contributing reason to why the quality of JG AEGs gets better year after year.

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.
