The JG Sig552 is a nice compact rifle for any purpose. It is small enough and light enough to be carried without fear of fatigue, yet strong enough to withstand the rigors of the environment. It is both compact and sturdy, while still being able to punch out 350 FPS right out of the box.
About the JG SIG552
As JG has been known for, this is yet another clone of the TM SIG
552 AEG. The good thing about ACM AEGs, JG especially, is their clones
turn out to be better than the original most of the times in terms of
function and affordability. Now let's see if the reputation of JG holds
true in their version of the SIG 552.
The JG SIG 552 is packaged in a simplistic cardboard box, with no
fancy graphics and with some prints about the guns basic info and specs.
As you open the box, you will see the weapon with it's stock
folded. Inside you will also find the usual ACM goodies: the battery (
SHUANG BA1100 NiMh 8.4v) and charger, Operating Manual, Cleaning/Push
Rod and a High Cap wind up magazine.
WEIGHT- this gun's wieght is a bit on the
lighter side, and that would be attributed to the amount of plastic
parts used in this particular model. This, however can be used as a
tactical advantage. A lighter gun (short at that) makes for a faster
movement and maneuverability.
SHAKE TEST- no wobbles, no creaks, even the folding stock stays in place. SOLID!
BALANCE - though the battery is placed inside the
front hand guard, there is no sensation of a dip due to unequal weight
distribution. I'd say it is well balanced.
THE "FRONT to END" RUNDOWN:
- The business end of this AEG consists of the following:
- Metal 3 prong flash hider with 14mm CCW thread
- Metal Front sight with long range and short range options
- Metal Outer barrel and Brass Inner barrel (tight bore).
- ABS upper Hand Guard functions as battery compartment cover. 20mm rail can be found on the right side
- ABS lower hand guard. Slides back to secure the upper hand guard.
20Mm rail at the bottom, perfect for an add-on tac-light or foregrip.
It is secured by a removable pin.
The BODY is made of ABS, inside is a version 2 gearbox (I have yet
to see this) the GRIP is also ABS, good angle and comfortable to hold,
BOLT CATCH HANDLE is metal, pulling it back will expose the Hop Up
(turn CW to hop-up, CCW to hop-down), trigger and trigger guard is
metal. The TRIGGER GUARD can be pushed side ways to the right (useful
if you are using really thick gloves this winter). The FIRE SELECTOR is
ambidextrous and is also metal. Aside from the S (safety) 1 (semi auto)
and 20 (full auto) markings on the fire selector switch, there are no
trade markings whatsoever on this AEG.
OPERATING THE JG SIG 552:
Installing the Battery
The lower hand guard slides back to release/open the upper hand
guard where the battery compartment is located. It is designed to
accommodate an 8.4v mini battery pack... but with a bit of DIY I
am pretty sure you can make space for another cell can be added
to make it 9.6v.
The hicap magazine that comes with this gun is a shorty type and is
transparent (yea, like the real steel) It can accommodate 210
BBs. Again, because it is transparent that takes the guessing
away whether you still have enough ammo in your mag or not. The
winding mechanism is smooth, and easy to operate. The
magazine inserts into the mag-well like the AK's... secure the
front end first, then push the rest until you hear a click. This mag
can be attached to another mag (and to another and to another...)
just like the G36.
After getting used to my AGM M14 SOCOM's 'silent' acoustics, I
found this AEG to be LOUD! Yes, it is a screamer. Now I want to
go to the 'awe and surprise' route and make this little beast
scream even louder by installing a metal piston and piston head, and a
sound hog to boot. Good cycles noted for every trigger pull, full
auto yields an approximate 800 rpm (ROF).
Target Acquisition and Live Fire
The front and rear sights are made of metal and comparable in
design to the MP5s. The front sight can be changed from a regular
sight (small) to a CQB sight (large). The rear sight has windage
and elevation as well as aperture size adjustments. I find the target
can be easily acquired with these sights even on a quick draw,
especially with both eyes open.
The fire selector switch has got a good click and stays at selected mode as you fire.
Live firing is impressive, I need not adjust the hop up as my BBs
were flying straight and far enough, approximately 100
meters or so. It produces good groupings (with lots of alpha shots) at
20 to 25 meters. I did not notice any misfeeds so far.
Poor Man's Chrono (PMC) shows that this little devil may be a
little bit on the HOT side. It punched through the soda can and
almost breached the bottom of the can. Unfortunately, I am gonna have to downgrade the spring to make it playable at the WERKZ.
For an ACM, this shooter has earned my respect in almost all aspects:
Aesthetics - lovely little dog this is, it may
not be full metal but it sure has a good look, it would have been
nice if JG had put on some trade markings, but maybe that is asking a
little bit too much. Putting external add-ons like optical sights and
tac lights makes it look meaner and scarier.
Ease of use - very straight forward, just install
the battery, insert a full mag, switch to semi or full auto THEN LET
HELL BREAK LOOSE!!! This guns weight plus the folding stock is a
plus in your tactical maneuvering. perfect for CQB.
Accuracy - the tight bore and good hop up
mechanism makes up for the short barrel and puts the BBs right on
target. The range is surprisingly good but downgrading it to a softer
spring may produce a shorter range. But, we engage enemies at a close
range in CQB ( and I intend to use this gun in CQB) anyway, so it may
not really matter at all.
Power - the PMC showed that this gun is too hot
for my CQB site, but if it passes the 360 max fps in some woodland
sites then this baby can really score big!
Durability - JG has been known in the ACM world
as a manufacturer of reliable AEGs. In my own little ACM collection, my
JGs still got to have a major break. The JG SIG 552 feels solid
enough but then I guess it's just a question of time before we can
tell how this gun scores on this aspect.
The familiar question, "do you ever get tired with your M4s and
MP5s?" could make you look out for other AEGs like this little baby
here. I never grew tired with my 'ol reliables (my CA M15A4 and my ICS
MP5 SD6) but the JG SIG 552 shows a lot of promise and I think I will
find it in my Go-Bag permanently.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE JG SIG 552 to all you airsoft enthusiasts out there.
