JG M4A1 Carbine with Side Folding Stock
by David H. Date Added: September 29, 2009
I got this gun roughly two months ago, and have used it in 5 or 6 battles, so it's fairly well worn-in, not brand-spanking new out of the box. First thing I noticed when I got it was that it's deceptively heavy. Not unmanageable by any means, but quite a bit heavier than my friend's G&G M4, even with a skeleton stock. But it's a sturdy heavy, and doesn't feel like it's going to break any time soon. Shooting... ROF is woefully slow with the come-with-the-gun 8.4, I'm estimating about 700 RPM (but that's just a guess). It also sounds like it's putting a lot of strain on the gearbox (Which, again, may be attributed to me still using the bad battery). Shooting-wise, I haven't had a chance to chrono it yet, but it's not bad... I don't think it's in the 400 range Evike says, but I'd say upper 300s (Maybe 360ish?). Accuracy, however, leaves much to be desired, even after lubing it and adjusting the hop-up, but, who knows, maybe my hop-up's just a lemon. Accurate to ~70', maybe a bit more, under normal weather conditions

Very sturdy gun
Stock is comfortable
Pretty good muzzle velocity
Heavy, with lots of metal parts
Nifty charging handle hop-up revealer

Magazine sometimes falls out (May be because of the mag, not the gun)
Poor accuracy (Maybe I got a lemon hop-up?)
Low ROF (because of stock battery)
Heavy, as above (A con for smaller players/extended play games)

Overall, not a bad buy for $145, though you could probably get something better, unless you're dead-set on the folding stock (Which is convenient for tight quarters)
