Our take: The 2011 edition JG T3 MC51 CQB AEG is a solid and comfortable rifle, that is easily maneuverable and accurate. JG has expanded on the already amazing T3 platform by shortening the barrel length and getting rid of the stock, creating a great CQB AEG. This is a hard hitting and very accurate CQB rifle with an all metal inner barrel and a fully adjustable hop-up. The hop-up on this AEG is extremely easy to access and adjust, due to the unique ability to lock the mock charging handle to the rear granting full access to the hop-up unit.
Another great feature of this JG T3 MC51 AEG is the sling swivel mount on the butt plate, which is perfect for attaching single point bungee slings. The battery space underneath the hand guard can accommodate most small type battery sizes. The JG T3 MC51 CQB rifle is very lightweight and comfortable, and only slightly larger than an MP5. This T3 variant has an MP5 style front hand guard, which fits securely on the front of the rifle with zero wobble. The JG T3 MC51 is very versatile due to its compact length and longer barrel, and can easily be used in both CQB and outdoor environments. This AEG also comes with a metal 20mm Top Rail perfect for mounting a wide variety of optics.
The JG T3 MC51's body is made of impact resistant polymer, which is both lightweight and very durable. The polymer components are very well made and fit together securely. The build quality of this AEG is excellent with no creaking or wobbling parts, which is common among other plastic body AEG's. The MC51 features the standard MP5 diopter iron sights made of full metal. The pistol grip and selector switch are both rubberized and ergonomically designed to provide maximum comfort and durability.
The internals of this AEG are focused on performance, with full metal reinforced version 2 gearbox and a high speed motor. The motor on this AEG provides an excellent rate of fire with a stock battery, and would be even faster with a 9.6v battery. The hop up unit is similar to both the G36 and Sig 552 hop-up units, with a large rotating hop-up adjustment wheel, which provides excellent accuracy at distances up to 130 feet!
This AEG performs much better than most premium grade AEG's, shooting faster and harder than its Classic Army and Tokyo Marui counterparts for half the price! The construction of this AEG is solid, and is sure to last with regular light maintenance.

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.
