The JG Urban Assult UA-3 RAS is an airsoft replica of the Steyr AUG firearm. It is not quite the same, but closely resembles the Steyr AUG A3. The following image, licensed under Creative Commons Attribution 2.0 License by Steyr Mannlicher, provides a reference to compare to the airsoft replica, which we will review in this article.
The JG Urban Assult UA-3 RAS airsoft replica has incredible specs that claims 450 FPS out of the box. We've always wanted to give it a try. In addition, we have always wanted to checkout Airsoft Megastore's Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) policy. It's policy states the following:
"CERTIFIED Pre-Owned? More Like CUSTOMIZED Pre-Owned! What does that mean for you? Simple: UPGRADES. Whenever itís warranted, our Certified Technicians will not only RESTORE an Airsoft gun to factory specifications, they will also choose to, AT THEIR DISCRETION, perform CUSTOM upgrades and enhancements to the gun for more optimized performance, including but not limited to installing upgraded springs, air nozzles, upgrading pistons and/or piston heads, re-polishing barrels and/or installing tight-bore barrels, just to name a few."
Theoretically, based on this policy, the original 450 FPS should be honored by the Airsoft Megastore's certified technicians. So when Airsoft Megsstore have an CPO JG Urban Assult UA-3 RAS in stock for $150, then provided a 30% off coupon for its CPO inventory, we snagged one up at just above $100 (shipping and tax). Brand new, we seen this gun being priced somewhere between $200 and $300. In this article, we will test the CPO policy theory while playing with this awesome airsoft gun.
The package arrived in great shape. Airsoft Megastore provided a "Certified Pre-Owned Inspection and Warranty Certificate". The certificate claimed that the JG AUG AEG has a CPO rating of 'A'. Under the signature line, it claims "I verify this product has been 100% inspected, restored, and tested to be in 100% excellent working condition." However, there is no signature on the signature line. We are going to keep our fingers crossed on its claim.
The CPO certificate claimed that the package includes "Rifle, rechargeable battery, wall charger, and 300-round high capacity magazine." We found all the included parts. The package also included these components that were not claimed on the CPO certificate:
The supplement instruction manual is ripped and the paper targets looks handled, but not used. Otherwise, the rest of the contents and the cardboard box looks like brand new condition.
The magazine that comes in the box looks brand new with hardly any use. We can only see marks on it from being inserted into the AEG and pulled out again. Perhaps the tech used it to test. Otherwise, there is no other marks on it. In fact, the magazine looks so new, we don't believe it has ever seen an actual trip to the field.The magazine is a standard high-capacity AUG airsoft magazine. It has a sliding door for you to pour BB's into it. There is a winding wheel on the bottom of the magazine for you to wind it up. The BB feeding hole is at the top. There is a latch release that allows you to unload the BB's that has been wound-up.
The content includes the standard J.G. Works 1100 mAh test battery. The battery looks absolutely brand new and never used. The transparent wrapper is in perfect shape. The Tamiya connector and wiring has never been twisted or tangled. It's in perfect condition.
Too bad it's just a test battery. In the past, we've seen that the J.G. Works 1100 mAh test battery will not stand up to much use in airsoft. We've since started using these test batteries to charge our SmartPhones instead.
