JG SL8 info

Recommended Posts

The JG SL8 has 20rd low cap mags, does any other G36 mags fit it at all ?

Yes they will. I'm pretty sure all JG guns are TM clones so most manufacturers magazines should fit I'd guess.

If the SL8s are anything like the G36s,there have been some changes made by JG which are very dummyheaded.

 

-JG decided to cut costs and install Nylon bushings. In a gun pushing 400FPS OOTB with an M130 spring this is really bad for long term reliability. Replace with steel bushings or bearings. Even with a 1J spring required by our laws I'd still replace them. The gearbox is too high stress for nylon bushings.

 

-New proprietary hop up unit. It's terrible. To replace it you must replace the magwell which is thankfully still in Marui spec.

 

-Usual recommendation of re shimming, re greasing and aoe correction because JG don;t pay their QC department.

 

Overall should be the same JG stuff, super strong gearbox easily on G&G top tech levels with poor acm hop up.
