My JG Bar 10 from Taiwangun arrived! She has been stripped, cleaned, a bit of teflon tape and re greased, then treated to a Deepfire TBB and two Deepfire mags from Redwolf.
I already had a scope thats been sprayed OD, so a bit of camo tape went on, i'm not very impressed with the look, but cant be fussed stripping off the scope, I may re spray it tomorrow.
In mostly stock form she is 410fps on .20g and 10/10 shot accurate on a coke can at 25m. I will try getting out to a longer range tomorrow and will be skirmishing her on Sunday at Formby.
Out of the box she seems to be built pretty well, i'm going to give it a bit of time but I think I will be calling bullshit to the "all sniperz are poo and must spend 50000£z!"
There is a horrible air leak from the piston, but its an undersized o-ring, a quick trip to my local DIY shop will sort that. The piston itself is very solid and well put together and much better quality than most AEG pistons. The cylinder is nicely polished, the cylinder head seats perfectly. The hop up woks well and even the hop up rubber seems decent for now. The trigger pulls nicely, is a crisp reliable break and has a realistic level of resistance. The sears look cheap and I do expect them to break, but i'm not inclined to pre-emptively upgrade them until they do go. I put over 100 rounds through her without a single issue so far. It does feel a bit delicate, I don't think its a gun you can abuse or throw around but its impressed me so far.
All in delivered, gun scope, bbs, TBB, 2 extra mags and a bag for less than £150 is pretty good in my book.
