GB MP5A4 Echo Electric Rifle Manual
Please visit our Airsoft Maintenance page for information and videos.
The JG MP5A4 is a full stock version of the MP5 series. This means that you can fit a large type battery in the stock. This is a lot easier than sticking the battery in the handguard. It also allows for larger capacity batteries for extended play time.
What is JG or GB or Echo1?
JG stands for Jing Gong, which is actually Chinese for Golden Bow; hence GB. Also, GB or JG manufactures for Echo 1, they are OEM Jing Gong airsoft AEG guns. All these different names for the same airsoft manufacturer is confusing. Hopefully, this has helped clairfy the confusion.

While waiting for the MPEG to arrive, I checked into the gun. I had my
doubts from what I heard from different people, but they were blown
away when I received it. When UPS arrived at my front door, I was
excited to see what AirSplat sent me. The packaging inside the box
was great, and nothing was damaged at all. My first impression of
the MP5-SD6’s (Yes, I know it says “M5-S6” on the box, but it’s really
modeled after the MP5-SD) box was, “Wow!” For $79.99, I was
impressed. The box was very durable and was not falling apart – a
good sign that nothing will be broken before you even use the gun.
Now as you can see in the picture above and below, the box doesn’t
have any fancy designs on or in it, but that doesn’t matter to me.
What matters to me is what is actually inside and how well it is
So I opened up the box and was again impressed. Everything was
tightly packed and secured – a good sign. I then began looking at
everything that was included. There was the actual MP5-SD6 itself, a
battery and charger (nice for newer players), the magazine, the BB
loader, and the cleaning rod along with the manual and small bag of
.2 BBs. Again, for $79.99, (Although free for us thanks to AirSplat),
you get the complete package. There is no need to worry about
buying a charger and battery, which I think is great for newcomers of
Look and Feel:
The overall look of the MP5-SD6 is very good. It has a nice black
finish to it. The silencer is painted orange at the end, of course due to
federal laws. The magazine is metal (a plus!) with a good part of the
gun being metal as well. Most of the external body is plastic which
may cause some of you to wince at, but it is a MPEG. The handgrip is
excellent; it has a nice feel to it, and the design is great as well. The
silencer can be unscrewed to reveal the barrel - again metal. The
retractable stock is plastic, but has a comfortable feel to it. It has two
modes: all the way inward and all the way extended. Most people
prefer the extended, which is also my preference. There are two fire
modes: single and full auto. There, of course, is a safe mode as well.
The rear sight is adjustable, as with the hop-up in this gun. Some
have said that they have had trouble with the hop-up, but so far we
haven’t nor plan to. For a MPEG, the MP5-SD6 is relatively heavy. I
thought that because it is a mid-range AEG, it would be made all of
plastic and thus, be very light, but not so at all.
One of the features that I thought was great was that a battery and
charger are supplied with the gun. For people new to the sport or
people who can’t spend $200.00+ on a Classic Army, Tokyo Marui,
etc, this is a wonderful feature! Even to an experience airsofter like
myself, I thought it was excellent benefit. Now the charger isn’t a
high-speed, high-tech charger, but it does get the job done very
efficiently. The only trouble I had with the MP5-SD6 was putting the
battery in the gun. To me, it seems that all airsoft companies that
make AEGs should come up with a better way to place the battery in
the gun, but since I don’t make the guns, I shouldn’t be complaining.
The proper way to place the battery in the gun is as follows: one,
remove the two little pin-like items on each side of the handgrip
(Photo of Battery #1), and two, simply pull the handgrip forward and
off the gun (Photo of Battery #2). It’s as simple as that! Some of you
may be wondering why I had such a hard time figuring that out. Well,
whoever packed the box at the manufacture’s warehouse in China
made a mistake putting the wrong manual in the box. I received the
manual for the MP5-J model, not the MP5-SD6 model. However, the
guns are very similar so it didn’t take much to figure out all the
features. The wiring for the battery is great. Most of you may not
agree, but I dare to say that the wiring for this gun’s battery is more
organized and secure then Classic Army’s and other brands, but
that’s just me.
For $79.99, the accuracy and FPS on this AEG are great! The FPS is
around 290-330 FPS. It has a range of around 200-250 feet. I was a
little worried that the accuracy would be off, but it really hasn’t been.
There were a few rounds that went way left, but the wind was blowing
at the time. Also, the gearbox is a version two and is metal - a great
The following are the pros about the gun: the look, the quality for its
price, the battery and charger included, a good part of the gun being
metal, the price, the accuracy, and that it’s a great player package for
newer-middle class players.
There are very few things that I found wrong with the gun, but there
were still a few. One was that the switch for the fire mode is a little
flimsy, but not bad overall compared to what I’ve seen out there. Two,
I had, and still have, a little trouble with the magazine. It seems that
when it locks into place, the gun has trouble firing them, yet while I
apply upward pressure to the magazine, every BB fired. So it seems
to me that it doesn’t fully lock into place, thus requiring you to slightly
push up on the magazine. Again, not a big thing, but it can get
annoying after awhile. Yet I haven’t heard about people having
trouble with the magazine so it could just be me. Third, if I was to be
picky, I would have to say that the stock only has two modes: fully
inward and fully extended. And fourth, is that the gun is noncompatible
with other magazines, that we know of. The best thing to
do is to email wherever you are buying the gun from and ask; they
Overall, I really couldn’t be happier with this gun for its price. I’m
extremely impressed with its look, price, accuracy, etc! For $79.99,
it’s a great deal for newer to middle class players! Even for an old vet’
like myself, I found it very enjoyable to play with. I would recommend
all of you newer to middle class CQB and MP5 fans to go and
purchase this gun from AirSplat (www.airsplat.com). One of the best
things about them is that they ship fast and via UPS, which I’ve never
have had trouble with. They also send you a tracking number as well.
and the gun too.
