    Hey guys! I own a JG AK 47 and I want to upgrade my motor. Does anybody know where I could get a good motor for under $45? Thanks!

    For just a couple bucks more you can get a Lonex A1 or A2, they are excellent motors.

    Like Nortech said, save a couple for dollars and get yourself a Lonex.

    If I may ask, why are you upgrading the motor first?

    +1 to this. I bought a A1 motor for my Cyma AK and couldn't be more impressed with the power from it. I didn't even want to put it in my gun, I wanted to build a little throne for it so I could see it at all times.

    Lonex make some awesome motors, and they're absolutely worth the money.

    I think someone should give him the standard "upgrade this before this" lecture. I'm on app so I will once I reach a computer if nobody else has.

    Depending the model of the AK, you may or may not have metal bushings. If you don't pick up some, they're cheap: like $5 after shipping. (Glue them in) Maybe pick up a new piston, JG Ak pistons can be a bit weak.

    Next, reshim your gears, correct AOE for optimal longevity; regrease and perfect compression aid as well. A new motor, especially a Lonex A2, will bump ROF up a bit. Performing these upgrades/mods will increase it's longevity.

    You don't NEED to perform these, but, like I'v said, it will increase longevity.
