Built from high impact ABS polymer, with a solidly constructed full metal Version 3 gearbox, the JG S550 Marksman AEG is one of the most reliable and high performing airsoft electric guns priced below $150! The JG S550 Sniper Rifle AEG is a truly amazing deal, and includes everything you need to use the rifle right out of the box!
Unlike most other unique/ uncommon AEGs on the market, the JG S550 Marksman AEG is compatible with a wide range of rail mounted sniper scopes, as well as most Version 3 gearbox internal upgrade parts. The JG S550 AEG is not just another rare showpiece AEG meant to be displayed on a wall, this AEG was designed for hard hitting, long range accuracy, and is easily capable of hitting targets at over 175 feet away! What sets the JG S550 AEG apart from other airsoft sniper rifle AEGs on the market is its side folding stock, which drastically reduces its length and makes it more maneuverable and easy to carry. The JG S550 AEG's lightweight design and side folding stock make it ideal for both indoor and outdoor fields.
Designed similarly to its Swiss real steel counterpart, the JG S550 Marksman AEG features an integrated fold-out bipod, providing a stable platform for taking down long distances targets. Similar to a G36 AEG, the JG S550 features an ambidextrous selector switch and a thick rubber butt pad, making it comfortable for any style player. An integrated top mounted optics rail is perfect for attaching a wide variety of 20mm Weaver rail compatible scopes and sights, improving your tactical advantage on the airsoft field.
An advantageous feature of the S550 series AEGs is the interlocking magazine design, which allows you to double and triple stack your magazines, and drastically reduce your reload time! Whether you are battling it out in a simulated urban environment, or a wide open outdoor field, the JG S550 AEG can easily take out the opposition from a remarkable distance!
Utilizing the same renowned Version 3 full metal gearbox found in most JG R36 and AK47 AEGs, the JG S550 airsoft sniper rifle's internals are solid and reliable. JG's Version 3 metal gearboxes are known for their reliability, as well as their compatibility with many aftermarket Version 3 upgrade parts and accessories. Putting out an average of 390 FPS, the S550 AEG packs a serious punch even at great distances. The installed precision hop up unit and inner barrel give it a maximum effective range of 225 feet, making it perfect for sniping in wide open outdoor environments. The S550 AEG's hop up chamber and dial is similar to a G36, with a large easy to adjust wheel which perfectly tunes your hop up and keeps your shots on target.
If you want a unique top performing sniper rifle AEG, that won't break the bank, the JG S550 Marksman AEG is the airsoft sniper rifle for you! Less common than traditional M16 and AK47 AEGs, the JG S550 stands out amongst other guns on the field, while performing at the same or higher levels than most other AEGs in its price range.

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.
