"This review is for the EMG / SAI GRY AR-15 AEG Training Rifle w/ JailBrake Muzzle (Configuration: SBR / Black Export Furniture)
This is an excellent bundle kit out of the box. I like to tinker and took this as my opportunity to see what I could not only break - but also fix.
The frame and build of the gun is excellent. Not being picatinny on the sides and underbarrel leaves something to be wanted, but there is plenty of space for keymod attachments/additional railing.
First thing that failed for me was the fake charging handle. After adjusting my hopup the first time, the poor quality spring which retains the charging handle would not retract back into place. This also holds the gold "salient" dust cover plate in place - which is free floating with nothing really holding it into place.
Next thing that failed after multiple fieldings was the bucking. Highly suggest replacing this anyway, but this was again, kind of a stress test to see how much time and effort it takes to perform these types of repairs.
A gripe I have with this gun is the default gearbox - out of the box - works fine. You could probably go a year of fielding this without any real gearbox issues. For whatever reason though, they had the bright idea of not having it a "quick change" type. Mine was 330 fps out of the box, which will work for CQB, but I was expecting more. Hybrid fields are the norm in my area (Mixture of cqb and outdoor fields) and 330 fps really doesn't give you enough range on the field, or conversely, a reason to run it over say, a pistol or a shotgun in CQB. After taking it up to 450 fps as a "DMR", and then back down to 390 as a all-around platform, I'd recommending upgrading the spring to whatever your fields maximum CQB allowance is. (The "DMR" setup worked well once I upgraded the barrel, no point to run it with anything less than a 375mm barrel, and at this point, I'd suggest the other, longer "carbine" barrel housing so you could fit a longer tightbore barrel in it)
Moving back to failures - recommended is the 7.4V LiPo, works great. Motor on the other hand is a cheaper 20-30$ "high torque" motor. Poor thing sounds like it's trying so hard, after swapping it out for a higher grade motor it sounded fine.
The barrel - 6.05 widebore, roughly 280mm in length on the shorter version. Highly recommend swapping for a tightbore, 6.03 or smaller. Really helps with the grouping. The accuracy out of the box leaves a bit to be desired, but it's a pretty well optimized CQB platform to start.
At the end of the day, if you purchase this and do no upgrades, you're really gimping the potential of it. It will work. Hell, if this is your first higher-tier purchase ($350+), you might not even notice a lot of the aspects I pointed out. (And a tightbore barrel and high quality bucking are an easy upgrade with great, noticeable results)
Also this gun comes with no battery or charger, so you'll want to stock up on a few 7.4V LiPo batteries (Around $15-25 on amazon for the proper style), and a smart charger ($40-50 bucks here will save you a lot of heartache, and they're pretty useful for other types of batteries you might have.) This was kind of disappointing to discover but I already had the batteries and charger on the way. Kind of wish it was bundled as a "kit" for the same price, came with the extra magazines and you'd basically be field-ready out of the box.
"This a great gun! I love it! I like every thing about the gun. I did not really like that the dust cover does not close but that is not a big deal. There is not a lot of battery space so if you do not have a stick battery you will have to get a new stock. The pin to take the rail off is hard to take out at first but you can get it off with just a knife. The pin did come all the way out(it should not do that)but it is not a big deal. Over all it is a great gun I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good gun that is great out of the box but still upgrade able.
"I bought this gun because of it amazing looks and awesome reviews and the 10 mags was nice as well I got the gun play one game with it and it just felt lacking in the fps area so I chronograph it that's where I was disappointed the advertisee fps is 400 but mine only shot a very consistent with .20 and a brand new fully charged battery 305-307fps for the money I was not impressed at all.
