Chinese brands get a terrible rep in the airsoft world. They are known for being temperamental, monstrous, low-execution, and downright awful. Nonetheless, two or three makers have figured out how to take care of business and put out a top notch item at the low, low cost we anticipate from Chinese brands.
The highest point of the Chinese sprinters is Jing Gong. Jing Gong, which clearly means Golden Bow, has thought outside the box by making airsoft firearms that really work for as low as $100. A considerable lot of their weapons are rebranded by an organization called Echo 1, and together these two organizations put out basically the best section level AEGs accessible.
Jing Gong is a genuinely baffling organization. They don’t have a site, they don’t 30-30 Winchester any of their items, and they send no organization data with anything. Before 2006 they weren’t notable in the airsoft world and today they out of nowhere control a decent part of the market.
A lot of this has to do with another airsoft organization, Echo 1. Reverberation 1 basically purchases firearms from different organizations, adds a multi day guarantee, once in a while downsize the springs, brands them Echo 1, places them in another crate, and sells them. However Echo 1 rebrands firearms from one or two organizations now, the vast majority of their models are Jing Gongs.
Which one to purchase depends on the buyer. Reverberation 1 weapons typically cost $20-$30 more. In any case, they additionally have a guarantee, something practically obscure in airsoft because of there not being any US producers. They perform quality control too and you are more averse to get a lemon from Echo 1. They likewise downsize the springs in certain models, and that implies they shoot at a somewhat lower FPS. Be that as it may, numerous Jing Gong AEGs have plastic spring guides and can’t actually deal with the springs JG places in them, so the minimization emphatically adds to the life expectancy of the weapon. Here and there Echo 1 adds metal bushings also, which is great.
Weapons from Jing Gong and Echo 1 are not of the greatest quality using any and all means. What they are is very great incentive for cash. They work, are solid, have metal gearboxes, are upgradeable, take shots at high FPS and by and large make an extraordinary firearm. Furthermore, they can typically be bought for about portion of what a Japanese or Taiwanese maker would sell the model for.
Numerous Jing Gong and Echo 1 firearms presently sport full metal bodies, and a portion of the AK’s have genuine wood furniture. A ton of these can in any case be bought for around $150, which is a really astonishing arrangement for a dependable AEG with full metal body.
One Jing Gong rifle that truly stands apart is the Dragon. The Dragon is likely the most extraordinary airsoft rifle made. Referred to differently as the Dragon, STAR Dragon, S.T.A.R. Mythical beast, and Thunder Maul, no one appears to know what this rifle is called. No one is by all accounts sure which Japanese anime it depended on by the same token.
The STAR Dragon Thunder Maul 3002 1/2 (as I’ve taken to calling it) is simply a M4 carbine. Notwithstanding, it’s been shrouded in plastic pieces that make it seem as though something conveyed by RoboCop. The presentation of the weapon is totally different and may motivate the client to make laser shooting commotions while discharging it. It is very agreeable to hold, as it has an oddly ergonomic front grasp and a rubber treated cheek rest so extravagant you could nod off on it. It accompanies a short M4 mag like the ones utilized on Vietnam-style rifles, yet can fit any M4 mag. The grasp includes a little rack to rest the client’s thumb on. It’s agreeable, yet implies that lefties can’t utilize it serenely.
