Chinese brands get a terrible rep in the airsoft world. They are known for being temperamental, terrible, low-execution, and downright awful. In any case, several makers have figured out how to take care of business and put out an excellent item at the low, low cost we anticipate from Chinese brands.
The highest point of the Chinese sprinters is Jing Gong. Jing Gong, which obviously 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 firearms 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 strange organization. They don’t have a site, they don’t mark 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 minimize the springs, brands them Echo 1, places them in another container, and sells them. However Echo 1 rebrands weapons from maybe one or two organizations now, a large portion of their models are Jing Gongs.
Which one to purchase depends on the buyer. Reverberation 1 firearms for the most part cost $20-$30 more. Yet, they likewise have a guarantee, something 410 ammo in stock obscure in airsoft because of there not being any US producers. They perform quality control too and you are less inclined to get a lemon from Echo 1. They likewise downsize the springs in certain models, and that implies they shoot at a marginally lower FPS. In any case, numerous Jing Gong AEGs have plastic spring guides and can’t actually deal with the springs JG places in them, so the downsize decisively adds to the life expectancy of the weapon. At times 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 dependable, have metal gearboxes, are upgradeable, take shots at high FPS and by and large make an extraordinary weapon. Furthermore, they can for the most part 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 dumbfounding arrangement for a solid AEG with full metal body.
One Jing Gong rifle that truly stands apart is the Dragon. The Dragon is likely the most one of a kind airsoft rifle made. Referred to differently as the Dragon, STAR Dragon, S.T.A.R. Winged serpent, and Thunder Maul, no one appears to understand what this rifle is called. No one is by all accounts sure which Japanese anime it depended on all things considered.
The STAR Dragon Thunder Maul 3002 1/2 (as I’ve taken to calling it) is simply a M4 carbine. In any case, it’s been canvassed in plastic pieces that make it seem as though something conveyed by RoboCop. The visible presentation of the firearm is totally different and may motivate the client to make laser shooting clamors while terminating it. It is very agreeable to hold, as it has an unusually 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, however can fit any M4 mag. The hold includes a little rack to rest the client’s thumb on. It’s agreeable, yet implies that lefties can’t utilize it serenely.
