Our take: The JG LR-16 RIS AEG is one of the best choices for an AEG and also is one of the best deals around because of its low price tag delivering value and power. With a muzzle velocity that overpowers even Tokyo Marui AEGs and its JG Generation 4 gearbox, this LR-16 is ready to rock and roll. The JG LR-16 RIS AEG features adjustable hop up, adjustable rear sights, and a solid stock for large battery storage. With full Tokyo Marui parts compatibility and many other aftermarket upgrade parts compatibility, this AEG can be easily customized and upgraded.
Product Alert: To avoid confusion, you should always check the rear stock of the rifle to determine the production run of the product. The newest LR-16 RIS rifles with factory upgrades such as one-piece tight bore barrel, enhanced gearbox and high torque motor set up, and enhanced metallic internals will always feature an enhanced, modified rear stock (see pictures). JG LR-16 RIS AEG rifles, even some claiming to be the newest/enhanced models, without the modified rear stock are most likely older production run models, manufactured prior to 2011.
Newest Production Run JG LR-16 RIS Features:
- Like all Tokyo Marui produced M4/LR-16 airsoft rifles, this JG LR-16 RIS now features a FULL METAL ONE PIECE tight-bore BARREL for maximum accuracy and performance. No more annoying barrel wobble!

- Newer Generation 4 metal gearbox comes with an M120 spring pre-installed for maximum power AND more durable metallic-synthetic bushings/gears to HANDLE all that extra power

- 390-435 FPS + firing power ensures that you will DOMINATE any airsoft game. Accuracy and power better than that of TM LR-16 during comparison testing
- This newer LR-16 RIS model replaces the older JG LR-16 RIS (which other sellers are still selling as "the newest," offering noticeably better power, accuracy, and quality for a minimal price increase. Still features a high-capacity 300 round magazine
- Premium battery and wall charger included
- BOTTOM LINE: If you want a gun with the same HIGH-END equipment as the Tokyo Marui LR-16 RIS, but with EVEN MORE power and accuracy AT LESS THAN HALF THE PRICE, this is your BEST BET, GUARANTEED.

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.
