I bought one of these from a boneyard sale. I was suprised when i opened it up to find everything well intact. All that was wrong was the hop up rubber was ripped a bit. Oh well, cheap replacement part.
When the gearbox was opened i found a lot of nice surprises outside of the high density metal body. The gears were high strenth, there was a sector gear clip installed on it as well.
The cylinder head is polycarb, but that's another cheap upgrade. I would recommend upgrading to a magic box aluminum cylinder head.
The piston was a surprise as well, it was a high strength polycarb body with steel teeth. Needs a better strength head though. I would recommend an SHS aluminum piston head.
The JG motor is too good to replace or upgrade. The motor in my other JG has lasted over 3 years now and still shoots everything.
The wires were a nice set. Silver plated copper, but it's all good quality. Front wired with a mosfet installed, good for high power lipo batteries.
The nozzle is hard polycarb with no o-ring. Still has a good air seal. Recommend replacing with an echo 1 max air nozzle or SHS aluminum airnozzle just for strength.
Tappet plate is kind of an odd design, but gets the job done.
The cylinder is smooth, almost like it was anodized. One port present for air flow and still does its job well.
Haven't done any range shooting yet, but the airflow is powerful, i would guess about 380-400 fps with a rate of fire i would estimate at 12 rounds per second with a 9.6v nimh.
High strength internals
Bang for buck
Tokyo marui compatible
Nice wire set
Front wires get in the way of mags at times.
