The JG Steyr AUG A3 is a very interesting looking rifle. It looks like a futuristic rifle, but is merely your standard Steyr AUG with some additions. The full metal rail system is the first of its kind! It allows users to finally attach tactical accessories onto this weapon platform. It features a bullpup design that allows a full length barrel while keeping the barrel profile at a minimum.

This airsoft gun is not to be misrepresented as a real firearm or gun that is manufactured by Steyr Mannlicher GmbH and is merely an airsoft gun that fires 6mm pellets. The manufacturer of this airsoft gun is JG.

Review of the Jing Gong AUG A3 - Click for more reviews

I've always had a thing about the 'bullpup' rifle design. It's about 40, maybe 50 years old, and still has something progressive about the idea, which is to put the receiver and magazine of the gun behind the trigger rather than in front, thus making the stock a mechanically useful part of the design, and shortening the overall length of the rifle. It's a great design idea. The problem with the popularity of the design, however, is that the rifles employing this haven't been what you might call beautiful. The British L85 is an ugly wedge of metal, and the French FAMAS is a strange-looking piece. The Steyr AUG is an acquired taste, and its popularity here is influenced more than a little by it's use in the Irish armed forces.

So I had up until now been a bit curious about the airsoft AUG, which is considered to be accurate, but it's length, spindly design and relative lack of rails put me off. I had committed to the G36 family and I couldn't see a reason to move, unless someone somehow created a bullpup version of a G36. However, I came across a link to the AUG A3 in a discussion about forthcoming AEGs and I liked what I saw - a cross between the short, railed G36C and the sleek, bullpup-design AUG; perfect! After a bit of digging, I discovered that G&G are planning on doing one, and better yet JG had released one! A short step to pestering Tony at Eirsoft to get one in for me.

First impressions:
It looks better in the flesh than most photos that you might have seen, since they tend to be in-box, or lying somewhere, whereas the Steyr A3 photos are practially model photo-shoots, and look fantastic. The JG A3 does have a number of differences with the real steel A3, mostly because JG have just taken the A2 and modified it to look more like an A3 rather than creating original parts for accuracy (the front rails aren't quite right, the cocking handle is stock A2, and the top rail is clearly just an extended A2 rail; the A3 rail is solid, and closer to the body).

It's a bit of a shame, but then again no manufacturer would create an original A3 and then sell it at that price, and this is why we refer to JG as a 'clone manufacturer'; for the time being, we're not going to see them create anything original. But the A3 is a sign that JG might try it soon.



It's heavy. 4kg. You really notice that straight away. The front end is heavy, I think it's largely metal, but it's balanced by the mechbox at the rear which I think might be heavier than many regular mechboxes - Richie, feel free to correct me on that. The finish is reasonable, although the barrel was wobbly initially, and the whole gun required some tweaking to be ready for play. This is an assembly issue and as JG get pricier, they would want to start sorting this out. Also, that gearbox is clearly intended for a high ROF, and a very strong spring. If you have a notion of importing one, know that if you don't get a downgrade, the installed spring will be good for taking down armoured cars. They're not big on 1J in JG.





It has the overall body length of my G36C, which makes it great for CQB, but the barrel length of most full size rifles, which gives it accuracy at distance. The only downside which I anticipate is the weight of the gun, which is reasonable but a lot more than the all-plastic G36C, and having to switch to the non-STANAG, non-clippable mags. At least I'll be able to carry more of them than with the G36 mags.

Packaging was on par with any other JG gun I've ever bought. It comes with the gun, 1100mah battery, euro/asia charger, clip on iron sight (like on an A2), unjamming rod, orange barrel cap, and manual. No BB's were included, but that's probably a good thing.




When holding the gun, the first thing that you notice is the weight of it. The full metal RIS really adds some heft to the already heavy AUG platform, but it's still fairly balanced. No creaks were noticed or any wobble between the pieces.




Body quality is good. Not quite as good as the nylon CA ones, but similar to a TM. It has a textured finish, and is fortunately more matte in finish then the TMs are. There is a slight color difference between the body and upper receiver, but it's not all that noticeable. Seam lines are more pronounced then a TM, but less so then some clones.



In play:
An AEG design can seem like a great idea, and then turn out to be less than practical in actual use. The A3 didn't disappoint, however; it's stunningly accurate thanks to it's long, tight-bore barrel, while being short enough to be great in CQB. It's quite a revelation to be able to target accurately at long distance with what feels like such a short rifle (as noted above, this has had the hop-up upgraded and without that your mileage may vary, out of the box). The mechbox means I can use a 12V battery without modification and get a great rate of fire, which of course makes a difference in heavy firefights. The low-profile design makes it easy to aim even without a scope. As you can see from the photos, I fitted a cheap red-dot sight until I get the scope I want, but it was adequate. Once I zeroed it, it was very accurate and I can't wait to use it with a decent scope.

The low profile design also made it very easy to handle; it just feels great, and tough enough to taker a beating. The weight didn't turn out to be a problem at all of course, I'll generally have it tucked up into my shoulder, and looking down the top rail to target - the weight makes the gun steady and easy to aim with.

The mags were a bit of an issue. I'd been used to the luxury of G36 mags, clipping together and feeding easily, and the AUG mid-caps aren't great. But they work, and at least you can see how much ammo you have against the light. Also, they fit well in pouches designed for STANAG mags.

The strap attachment points are well placed and make it easy to set it up comfortably.

What I liked, and what I didn't like:
As you can tell, I liked just about everything about the A3, from it's design to it's performance in the field. It really is a great piece. However, it's not perfect - first off, it's less than physically accurate, since JG have cut corners in getting this design together. The compromise isn't a bad one, but I'd prefer to have an uncompromised replica of the real A3 design. Next, the stock-cover which covers the battery compartment comes off rather too easily, and this can be a problem, especially with the bigger high-voltage batteries that this gun cries out for. I'd prefer if this was fixed on a bit better (you can see the tape I pulled over the stock-cover in some of the photos to prevent it falling off). Lastly, although I liked it, the weight might catch some off-guard, if you're expecting a lighter gun.

I think this stands a good chance of usurping the JG G36C as a standard starter AEG, and out-performing it by a comfortable margin. I'd hate to think that the field will be flooded with these (there's a great feeling from having a piece that no-one else has) but there's a chance it might happen. At the very least, I think many AUG fans (they do exist, believe it or not) will look at getting one. It resolves several of the AUG's shortcomings, while retaining it's strengths.

Internals:

The gun comes stock with a Mosfet, similar to the systema one. I have yet to actually take it apart, so I don't know if they corrected the errors of the Systema one or if it includes active breaking. I can say that they did property sync the mosfet to it's aluminum body with heat sync grease.



Removing the plate behind the gearbox and taking the back two body screws out, one can now get to the gearbox. It's more difficult the a TM, but still doable.

JG, you read my mind about turning this into another ROF monster! Also note that the motor has neodymium magnets, and of all things, it has a ported cylinder. Cracking the box open is a pain with that massive spring in it, but worth it when you get inside.

Nothing too fancy internally compared to other 2008 JG's. This is a renforced V3 design, with what apears to be good quality metal. Spring guide is plastic, so needs to be replaced as soon as possible.

Compression components include a ported piston head, plastic piston, plastic cylinder head, and non-oring air nozzle. Compression is only average in stock forum, mainly leaking around the air nozzle. Also the piston has damage on the first tooth with only a few hundred rounds through the gun so far (mostly dry firing testing ROF). This is due to poor AOE with a heavy spring, but a new piston is also recommended.

One interesting thing is that JG is making their own gears now, as the engraving indicates. These gears are steel, and incorporate a thrust bearing into the Bevel Gear.

Chrono Test:

Shot down my hall into a shower curtain.

Raw Results:

Detailed results:
Average FPS: 419.3fps with .25g bb's.
Computed FPS with .2g bb's: 468 FPS
Computed Energy: 2.04J
EVERY shot went through the thin outer curtain and the thick plastic inner one. I've never shot another gun that could do that here...

Rate of fire
Tested via the Audacity Method

Elite 8.4v "1500mah" (my BC6 says it's 1100mah) battery: 13RPS
Stock 8.4V 1100mah battery: 12rps
Elite 9.6V 2000mah AUG battery: 16RPS
Elite 10.8v "1500mah" stick battery: 16RPS
11.1V 20-25C lipo, 2150mah: 19RPS
11.1V 30C lipo, 3000mah: 18RPS

So it's low, but it's also pushing something around a M140 spring. This is faster then my 2008 JG HK416 was out of the box, and it was only shooting 365fps with .25g bb's.
