Our take: The NEWEST edition of the JG Airsoft Thunder Maul Compact Battle Rifle AEG features reinforced and redesigned internals, guaranteeing the highest quality and performance! The JG Thunder Maul AEG is one of the most uniquely designed airsoft AEGs on the market, with an advanced ergonomic design. This latest edition Thunder Maul AEG is the internally upgraded version of the classic STAR Dragon AEG, manufactured to the higher F-Series model specifications. This advanced and high-performance JG AEG is based on a futuristic carbine from a popular Japanese anime series and movie. This AEG is constructed from high quality ABS plastic, with rubberized and contoured grips for maximum comfort. The compact size of the JG Thunder Maul AEG is perfect for both indoor CQB and outdoor airsoft games, with a contoured retractable stock. The base for this awesome looking AEG is the high performance JG Stubby CQB M4, which is one of the most reliable CQB M4's on the market! Though this AEG features an amazing collector's grade finish and design, it can easily hold its own on the airsoft field!
The JG Airsoft Thunder Maul Battle Rifle AEG features a completely original design, and more powerful, more accurate, and more reliable internals than most CQB AEGs. It is extremely versatile, with a fully retractable stock, making it very maneuverable in close quarters situations. This JG Thunder Maul packs a fierce punch in a compact size, making it perfect for indoor/CQB games. With the stock fully extended, the JG Thunder Maul can still hold its own in long range outdoor games. The muzzle velocity (360-400 FPS) easily overpowers Tokyo Marui AEGs, and its JG enhanced full metal gearbox, this airsoft compact carbine is ready to dominate the airsoft field! This compact CQB can also support a wide variety of optics and accessories! The carry handle of the JG Thunder Maul AEG can support a standard M4/ M16 Carry Handle Rail Mount, available at Airsoft Megastore. The Thunder Maul AEG also comes with a 14mm threaded barrel adapter, which can support a wide variety of mock suppressors/ barrel extensions giving the AEG the ultimate tactical look!
This Thunder Maul Battle Rifle AEG from JG features a redesigned gearbox, with a higher quality piston, bushings, cylinder, and gear set! This upgrade F-Series model features JG's top of the line Version 2 gearbox providing higher velocity, consistency, and improved accuracy. JG has reinforced the build of the gearbox to withstand higher FPS while maintaining a high rate of fire. The JG Thunder Maul AEG also features a high speed motor, firing over 800 rounds per minute with an 8.4v battery! Add the one-piece metal barrel set up to eliminate barrel wobble and you have one of the most solid, and most unique airsoft CQB AEGs on the market for an unbeatable price.
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
