LaoBing Softair JG mod M4A1 all metal

Anyone have any experience or reviews with this gun? Stuff like

- Reliability (jams, motor, maintenance, etc.)
- Durability
- Actual feet/s and rate of fire
- Pros/cons
- Upgrades

Also, would it damage the internals if I used a 9.6 V battery instead of the 8.4 V it comes with?

Is that like a regular JG M4A1? If so, google is your friend. The search function is also your friend. And they're both positioned very close to one another at the top of the site.

Isn't that great and useful?!

I've Googled laobing softair and it brings up a Youtube video of a guy shooting his gun at some paper and a can. The search for this forum returns nothing (laobing softair). I've done all this BEFORE posting this topic.

So you can safely assume it's a JG then? Says JG made on the site anyways.

OK I saw that, I believe I asked for user opinions and reliability, something your list does not show, and not a list of specs.

JG M4. Google it. That was the answer.

So I'm guessing absolutely no one on this forum has any experience with JG or its M4A1?

Using the search function and typing JING GONG I found the following:

http://airsoftcanada.com/showthread....ight=jing+gong

http://airsoftcanada.com/showthread....highlight=Jing

as just a start.

Goog luck.

And as a more direct answer I'll quote T7:

How you want it to look is up to you. Although JG is a fair brand these days, and have come along way from what they used to be.

Here are some additional points to consider before your first purchase.

1. Cost, is the airsoft gun you desire in your price range? Is it in your price range in the future if you save. Is it the brand you want? Its not just about the looks of the gun, each and every company has their own little take and twist. An example of this is that ICS M4 have a different threading on the upper receiver than that of say a Classic Army M4. Taking that into consideration you would be limited to front ends made specifically for ICS guns if you choose to change out your front end eventually. Unless however you choose to purchase a rethreading tool to change the threading of your upper receiver. Which brings me to my next point.

2. Cost + availability or parts and your own ability to do upgrades. So you have chosen your airsoft gun. Now you want to do some modifications and upgrades. Do you know what you’re looking for in terms of compatible parts? Do you know where to acquire them easily and do you have the know how to do the work yourself or are in a situation where you know someone who can do it for you. If your not mechanically inclined and do not have access to an airsoft gun doc, I would recommend that you purchase something that has already been preupgraded or at least something that has already had the standard preventative maintenance performed on it be it used or new. Preventative upgrades are simple upgrades that will keep the airsoft gun running longer (maybe not forever but defiantly longer). Most airsoft guns come with nylon bushings; the bushings are what help hold the gears in the mechbox. Most people believe that under heavy stress they bushings can melt and warp, it is recommended that they be replaced with metal bushings. Another example of a preventative maintenance upgrade would be a spring guide. A tokyo marui M4 comes with its stock plastic TM V2 spring guide, while this maybe all fine and dandy for the time being with its stock spring, attempting to run a spring with to high a strength rating may cause that spring guide to break. Over time even with its stock spring the spring guide can weaken. It is suggested that this be an item that you do replace if performing preventative maintenance, usually with something along the lines of a bearing spring guide.

3. Is it available in Canada through one of our retailers? It’s a well known fact that attempting to import an airsoft gun from outside of Canada is equal to that of tossing your money in the toilet, lighting the toilet on fire and then pushing it out of the back of a moving school bus. It may have seemed like a good idea at the time, but now you are out a bunch of money and you also ruined a perfectly good toilet.

4. Magazines, you have your airsoft gun and you only have one magazine well that’s all fine and dandy but I’m certain there may come a day where you will require more than one magazine. You may wish to look into the different brands and manufactures out there to see what is compatible with what and how much it costs.

5. Other. You may wish to consider cost and availability of other items you may want in the future and their availability. For example lets say you bought some form of armalite variant and wanted to go the SR 47 look. Well unfortunately at this time do the Canadian law you would be unable to bring the parts in required since they are prohibited, even if it were possible it is en extremely rare mod to find and even more expensive to buy. Another example would be an under barrel grenade launcher. Hope you can find someone in Canada because importing is a no no. Other things you may wish to consider are the cost of a sling, maybe some gear and optics.

that was sarcasm, try doing some research instead of begging to be spoonfed, after you realized that it was made by JG, you could have redone the initial research using "JG" instead of "Laobing" + M4A1

The stuff you listed all up to you of what you do to the gun, and how you use it.

yeah im kinda in a good mood tonight..

First off here are a couple of reviews on jing gong products that i found here on asc while not specifically about the model you are inquiring about i think these should give you an idea about the companies quality in general

Jing gong mp5http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthr...ight=jing+gong
jing gong ak47http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthr...ight=jing+gong
Jing gong hk416http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthr...ight=jing+gong
Jing gong m16a4http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthr...ight=jing+gong

Now upon taking a trip over to the friendly neighborhood search engine and typing “Jing Gong M4 Review” I got the following results

courtesy of airsoft ohiohttp://www.airsoftohio.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=18805
Courtesy of air soft faqshttp://www.airsoftfaqs.com/index2.ph...do_pdf=1&id=72
Courtesy of air soft forumhttp://www.airsoftforum.com/board/Ji...w-t109993.html

If reading isnt your thing there is always youtube granted there is a ton of god awful videos however the odd gem can be found from time to time

although this version is apparantly the "para" version which is a little different though it is a m4 varient by jing gong so you might get something useful from the video

YouTube - Jing Gong M4A1 Para Part 1 of 3

YouTube - Jing Gong M4A1 Para Part 2 of 3

YouTube - Jing Gong M4A1 Para Part 3 of 3

I hope this has helped you

cheers
