Our take: The ALL-NEW JG 2013 R36-HMC [Hybrid Modular Carbine] is a spectacle to behold in every single way. In our opinion, it is quite possibly one of the most well-balanced, well-designed high performance airsoft AEG rifles on the planet, bar none. The JG R36 HMC is FINALLY IN STOCK at last, and AIRSOFT MEGASTORE is the FIRST in the country to have this rifle available, and if we were to make an educated guess, we'd guess that these will go FAST. Improved and enhanced from the older generation E1 MTC, the JG R36-HMC has an enhanced full metal gearbox with an upgraded spring, upgraded full metal/durable polycarbonate internals, along with a touted (and highly praised) ultra high-torque motor. Just about everything on the newest V3 R36 from JG is better than you've ever seen before on airsoft AEGs in this price range. With metallic reinforced internals, JG's revised full metal gearbox is equipped with better-machined internals, and an upgraded spring, making this R36 ready to rock and roll.
What's so different? It pretty much boils down to two marvels of engineering prowess:
1. The tactical rear stock has been modified for all-around combat performance improvement: a ClubFoot mod tactical rear crane stock, with 4-point retractable ability has been added for enhanced field versatility.
2. The body and magazine well have been modified to fit M4/M16 magazines. That means you can take your favorite 300-round hi-cap or 130-round mid-cap, load up, and go!
It easily dominates the Classic Army or Tokyo Marui R36 rifles in terms of power, design, sophistication and accuracy. It's an engineering marvel! And with its lower price tag (half the price of the other guys), this AEG is a no-brainer. It also comes with a tactical ClubFoot Mod 4-point retractable crane stock for tactical versatility, and the best part is: IT IS COMPATIBLE WITH ALL [metal gearbox] M4/M16 MAGAZINES.
Awesome buy, one of the hottest airsoft rifles for 2013, 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.
