    Well, a year ago I bought one of my first two airsoft guns- a JG G3. Specifically their T3 K3- long barrel, full stock. In otherwords, a G3A3. This: https://www.airsoftmegastore.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=JG-100-T3K3

    I'd like to turn it into a DMR, so... I could use some suggestions. I'm really not looking to optimize it for skirmishability, though (see note at bottom of post).

    So, I guess... a bipod, a scope, and maybe a cheek pad would suffice since it has a tightbore barrel, stock, and I really don't want to dig into the gun's internals... at all. :/ Bad experiences...

    First question: There's a Classic Army bipod for their G3 on Airsoft GI (CA FS3 Bipod by: Classic Army - Airsoft GI - Welcome to the ultimate). Would it fit on JG's G3 without trouble? If not, what will?

    Second question: In looking for scope rails for G3s, I find that people often have problems fitting them to a G3, but not an MP5, so... I'd like an educated person to recommend me a scope rail for it. :s Perhaps a scope too, but I know what I'm lookin' for, there.

    Third question: Looking just on Airsoft GI, I can't find a sniper's cheek pad. Just ammo holders. Help? x_x I'm short on time nowadays.

    Sorry if any of these questions are dumb. ^^; Help is appreciated, guys.

    Note - This is my way of squirming out of digging into the gearbox and crap to replace the spring and stuff, which would certainly result in me screwing the gun up and having it sent back for repairs (again). -.-; I know if I wanted to make it a quality gun, I'd probably have to gut the damn thing, since it's a JG, and that's out of the question... for now.

    Oh, phooey. I don't suppose I could buy a bipod handguard separate, hmm? :/ Is there any way I can put a bipod on it, then?

    ...Hmm. The reviews say that it won't fit a JG G3, only ICS. :S Was your G3 an ICS, or are those reviews wrong...?

    That's a nice cheek pad, though.

    As far as I know ICS doesnt make a G3,only TM and CA does.You can get a JG ris for it and find a suitable bipod that will fit it easy enough.

    You can buy the handguard and bipod seperately, but I wouldn't get the JG version. It's a bit creaky. Do as Uller says and get the G3 RIS front hand guard and then get a bipod that will connect to the RIS.

    ...Hmm. That's odd. Well, okay. So that ICS rail you linked me to will fit my JG G3, even though the reviews say the opposite? Well... okay. :s I'm not doubting you or nothin', but those reviews... ^^'

    I see... well, as much as I'd rather not change the G3's handguard to one covered in rails, if that's my better option, I suppose that's what I'll do. ...But, any idea where I could find a bipod-handguard? "Creakiness" wouldn't bother me too much. :p

    Slapping a scope on a stock clone =/= making a DMR.

    I mentioned I don't want to optimize it for skirmishability in the first post. I don't have the confidence to go digging around in the gun to replace... well, since it's a JG, everything.

    Sorry for the confusion. :/

    I'm only finding one hand guard and it's the tactical hand guard: ~$39 Eaiming CNC Tri-Rail Metal Hand guard for G3 Series AEG Airsoft Tiger111HK Area
    I'll keep searching though.

    Another option would be to install rails to the hand guard you already have. If there's pre-drilled holes it'll be an easy 1, 2 step process. If not you'll have to drill holes into the hand guard, which just adds 2 more steps. 1. Measuring and 2. Drilling



    I also ran into this idea: http://img.blogcu.com/uploads/Defense_wrdCqfwI.jpg

    Random addition: I have an old JG G3 handguard. I removed bipod and gave it to a friend though :-/ If you're interested send me a PM and we'll work something out.

    Well, that's nice, I have to admit... although, err, I can't buy from China sites. :s I found an RIS handguard on Evike, though.

    ...Hm...

    ...Hmm... sometime in the future, maybe. I do appreciate the offer.
