1. Ordering




I ordered the JG BAR-10 G-SPEC from AirsoftGI.com for $135 which included a scope, suppressor, and scope rings. Although, when my gun arrived the small bag that was supposed to hold the screws to assemble the gun wasnít there. So, we called them up, and they said they would ship the screws, and it wasnít an uncommon problem for the screws not to be in there. Besides my shipping error, AirsoftGI is still a great place to buy from and have great prices and pretty fast shipping, considering theyíre in California (I live in Tennessee).




2. First Impressions




Well, when my gun arrived, I was as happy as a clam. That was before, of course, I figured out the screws werenít there. Anyway, when I picked up the box, I wasnít really surprised to find that the gun is relatively light. But thatís not really a big problem, because when you add a scope and a suppressor, the gun is just the right weight. Anyway, after I tore off the brown paper and tape, I was greeted by a pretty plain looking brown box, with some nice box art. Upon opening the box, I found there was everything that was supposed to be there, with the exception of the screws. For $135, I got a nice rifle, a scope, scope rings, a suppressor, the magazine, and a speed-loader. I then pulled out the two halves of the rifle, the upper half being the bolt, barrel, and trigger assembly. The bottom half, the stock and hand-guard, is made out of ABS plastic, very nice quality, I might add. Next, I had to assemble the rifle. All you have to do is slide the upper half of the rifle into the bottom half, and insert the screws. Mine actually did assemble without the screws, itís just that there really is nothing holding the rifle together while I am carrying it, which may be somewhat risky. So overall, my first impression of the rifle was very good.

3. Build Quality/Externals




Next, I will talk about the external features of the gun itself. Iíll go from front to back to make sure I donít miss anything. First, some details of the gun: The JG BAR-10 G-SPEC is a relatively short rifle, compared to other sniper rifles. It is about 37 inches without the suppressor, and 44 inches with the suppressor. The gun is also pretty light for a sniper rifle, weighing in at about 5 pounds. That may be a problem for some people who want a realistic feeling rifle. Now, that being said, a lighter rifle also means itís more comfortable to maneuver with and you wonít strain your arms carrying it. Ok, now Iíll start my external review from the front. First, the barrel on the JG BAR-10 G-SPEC is metal, like the Tokyo Marui version. It is also very short, with the outer barrel being about 330 mm long, and the inner being about 302 mm. Now, thatís pretty short, but as youíll read in the performance section, it still has very good accuracy. Next up is the sling swivel studs. They are metal, and they come equipped with sling mounts attached, but you can easily remove them to attach higher quality sling mounts, or maybe even a bipod. Farther down the gun is the hop-up adjuster. It is metal, and very responsive. I found it to be the most accurate in the middle of the adjuster.

The hop-up adjuster.


Past the hop-up adjuster, there is the only trademark on the gun, which says, ďMADE BY J.G. WORKSĒ. The trademark really isnít very noticeable, so if you like guns with blank receivers, you may find that a plus.


Jing Gong BAR-10 G-SPEC Review (WIP) PICT0320


The JG trademark. Sorry it's a little hard to see.




Next, is the bolt and bolt handle. Both the bolt and the bolt handle are metal, which I find a big advantage. But, the bolt itself is made of a very shiny and reflective metal, which may give your position away. It is also a closed bolt, which means it does not open up when you pull it back, which may be a bad thing for realism fans. But that also means that things canít get caught in the bolt, which is good.

The bolt and bolt handle. Note the shiny metal on the bolt.




Right behind the bolt handle is the safety switch. It is metal, much like the rest of the portion of the rifle. You move it backwards for it to be in safe, and forward to make it ready to fire. One disadvantage I found is the safety switch may be flipped to safe when you c0ck the rifle. Iíll tell you, there is nothing more annoying than cocking the gun, getting ready to fire, trying to pull the trigger, and nothing happens.

The safety switch currently set to 'Fire'.




Now, on to the trigger and trigger guard. The trigger itself is metal, while the trigger guard is plastic. The metal quality of the trigger seems to be pretty good, however the plastic used for the trigger guard is very thin and flimsy feeling. It also has a very noticeable seam line on it, which isnít good. Finally, weíre to the stock. Now the stock (and rest of the lower portion of the gun) is made out of ABS plastic, with a nice rubberized finish that is incredibly comfortable to hold and shoot. It is also painted matte black, which looks very good, and wonít easily give your position in a skirmish. You can also remove the rubber butt pad, revealing a pretty large space, which you can use to add weights if you want the gun to be heavier.

Here you can see the stock space.


So, if I had to rate the overall build quality and externals, I would rate it an 8/10.




4. Included Accessories




The JG BAR-10 G-SPEC comes with many accessories, like a suppressor, a scope, scope rings, a magazine, and a speed loader.




a. Suppressor




Now, one nice thing about the suppressor that comes with the rifle, is that it actually makes the gun quieter. Without the suppressor, the rifle makes a relatively loud ĎCLACKí noise. But, with it attached, the JG BAR-10 makes a pretty quiet Ďpffftí noise. I found that the sound difference is really only noticeable outside. Anyway, you have to be careful not to screw the suppressor on too tight, or else you will have a very difficult time getting it off. Trust me, I know from experience.

Here is the supressor.

A look down the supressor...




b. Scope




Jing Gong BAR-10 G-SPEC Review (WIP) PICT0307


The scope.


The scope that comes with the JG BAR-10 G-SPEC (if you buy the scoped package) is a 3-9 x 40 rifle scope. It is metal, and itís pretty long too, at about 1 foot long. It also adds some weight to the rifle, which is good, because as you read earlier, the gun is pretty light without anything mounted. The scope also comes with its own sun shade, but I usually donít use it because I just find it to be in the way. But, anyway, I really havenít actually used the scope on the rifle, because the screws to mount the top rail to the gun also werenít in the box, so I have to wait to get those, too. Although in my spare time I practice with the scope, like looking through it and adjusting it, because Iím not used to scopes at all. One nice feature about this scope is that it has an illuminated reticule, which has eleven different intensity levels, but I find the brightest one to be the most useful, as you really canít see the other ones very well.


Jing Gong BAR-10 G-SPEC Review (WIP) PICT0306


Here you can see the illuminated reticule at brightest level.


As I said before, it is a 3-9 x 40, which means all you have to do to make it zoom in more is turn the dial on near the rear of the scope to the left, and turn it to the right to zoom in less.

You did an excellent job of formatting, minus a few bb code errors.

SO are you ready to proceed to the real editing process?

You need new photos, sorry to tell you this.

Please use a white sheet or towel for the background in your pictures, it will look more professional. ( you can also use black )
If you have $20, go buy a strip of black velvet for the photos.

Also the lighting in your photos is not the best. Try to increase your lighting, go outside or open a few windows.

Please consider this advice, only the best reviews will be submitted onto the new website.

Thanks
