"I bought this gearbox just under two years ago and it has served me well up to this point. I'll start with the good things about it. All of the internals are very strong and well made, however I have had to replace the spur gear due to a tooth fracturing off of it. While the internals are very good that doesn't matter at all if the gearbox shell isn't built well, which it is not. One week ago the front end of both halves of the shell fractured right off where this piston hits the cylinder head. This is a horrible gearbox in terms of longevity but when it works it works well, This gearbox has been run completely stock except for a change of gears due to the tooth fracture, I put in JG standard gears as a replacement. I do not go airsofting every weekend so this gearbox did not see extensive use, I usually go every 6 weeks or so. This break will render your gun useless and will cause stress on the hop up if you do not find the fracture in time. This may also cause your hop up to break leading to many headaches as I have experienced.
Would I recommend this? NO-NOT EVER, Unless you plan on only going airsofting once. I am being dead serious-DO NOT BUY THIS. "5/5
Absolutely wonderful. I bought this with the Matrix Magnum 3000 motor, performs like a dream.
First thing I did with it was void the warranty by opening it up. Inside, lots of nice parts. The spring guide stainless steel, as is the cylinder head. Unfortunately, the selector plate did not have contacts, and the wiring set didn't have them for the selector plate either. Wah. Didn't matter, cuz I bought a MOSFET system with a trigger set included, and I had a spare selector plate with trigger contacts. Works very well.
Has what the picture says inside.
Pre-shimmed gears. If you open it up, make sure they don't go flying off so you know where each shim was.
Powerful, well worth the price.
Wiring is extremely short, not even an inch out of the gearbox. If you try to fit it in your lower reciever, the tamiya connecter will probably rip off. It did for me.
No trigger contacts on the selector switch or corresponding ones on the trigger set.
Overall, a very nice gearbox, with a 363mm MadBull V2 6.03mm, madbull ultimate hopup, MOSFET, and this gearbox well outperforming a KWA SR10 without upgrades. "I got this in the mail today and started building my AEG from scratch(almost).I'm really glad I got this pre-assembled gearbox, a little greasing and my gun was shooting amazing. Saved a lot of time. Only con is the wiring in the back was too short - would have rather seen regular wire crimps instead of a small male tamiya connector. After ripping that off all was good. Great product.
Suggest that you buy it with some extra wiring. Read More Reviews Write a Review

Complete AEG Gearbox Review:
A good gearbox on par with the KWA M4 gearbox. One advantage of this gearbox over the KWA is that all 6 bearings are standard size 8mm bearings you can buy. Making it much easier to work on. The monster gear set can power up to M170 spring combined with magnum motor. The inner wall of the gearbox is reinforced, just like the Systema new type
Mecha box shell, with all the inner walls thickened. Easy installation for most major brands of M4 / M16 series AEG. Great performance.
To install this gearbox on a MOD5 series, although it is a version 2, the nozzle, selector plate and trigger are not the same. Slight work and gearbox knowledge will be required.
