The Legiral Massage Gun offers one of the best values for your money out there if you are looking for a practical all-in-one massager. It is highly functional, potent, and comes with all the necessary accessories to enhance your recovery process. Thanks to its low price, excellent performance, and long battery life, it easily ranks among some of the best massage guns out there, and in this review, we will see how it stacks up against other top competitors…
Overview & Features
Design and build quality
The design of this massage gun is the familiar gun-shaped construction most other cheap brands use nowadays. While it is great for cost-saving, it offers little to no convenience and comfort when being used on hard-to-reach areas around your body. Still, there is a non-slip handle with an LCD display that gives you your speed information along with the battery levels.
The build quality is also mediocre which is to be expected at this price. The overall weight of the gun with all of its attachments and carry case is around 6lbs with the massage gun only weighing 4.1 lbs. That is on par with all the other models out there and is easily light enough to be used by both men and women on a frequent basis.
Heads and adjustability
While there is no adjustability for the head angle, there are 6 different tips that come with this massage gun. Apart from the two normal ball heads (big and small one) you also get a pointed tip, spinal tip, and two flat tips that are great at reducing inflammation and helping your muscles deal with lactic acid buildup.
There are two very important numbers that you need to remember when it comes to the massaging capabilities of this massage gun. First, it has a stroke depth of 16mm. While this is on par with other medium-priced guns, it does struggle with deep-tissue massaging once you start pushing it harder against your body. That also happens with all other massage guns at this price point since most of them share the same parts including the slightly weaker motor.
The other important thing here is the fact that you can adjust the percussions per minute (PPM) within 20 different speeds. The lowest possible setting starts from 1200 RPM and the highest goes up to 3200 RPM. That, combined with the massage heads really allows for some specific work on your body’s muscles and pressure points. The first few gears are designed for muscle arousal, while gears 5-8 are meant to relax your fascia. The gears from 9 through 12 work best for decomposing the lactic acid in your muscles, while the gears from 13 to 20 are meant for deep-tissue massages and professional use.
Ease of use and portability
In terms of its practicality and portability, this gun doesn’t really outshine its competition mainly due to the fact that they all share the same platform. Still, you do get a hard case to carry everything, which makes things much easier, especially if you have to travel constantly and want to have your massager along. When everything is packed, it weighs around 6-7lbs.

Battery & Noise levels
The battery pack inside consists of 4 batteries with a combined power figure of 2500mAh. They are good for 3-6 hours depending on the speed you’re working on. The total recharge time it takes the Legiral Le3 to reach back 100% is around 2 hours.
Thanks to that same efficient brushless motor, this massage gun is also relatively quiet compared to other models in this class. The company promises that the gun will work at noise levels around 35 dB which is whispering territory. The reality is that the gun is slightly noisier than that. Still, for a budget model, this might be one of the quietest guns out there.
Additional Features & Accessories
Apart from the additional heads and hard carrying case you’re getting with this package, there aren’t any more additional accessories or features that I haven’t mentioned so far apart from the fact that you can choose between a silver and a carbon fiber version of the Le3.
There is one more version of the Legiral Le3 massage gun called the Le6. It is slightly lighter, has a stroke length of 10mm, and is cheaper. The Le6 is actually the perfect gun for a beginner since it is much cheaper and, therefore, an even better value for your money. On all models, you get a 1-year warranty combined with a full refund policy within that period.
Advantages & Disadvantages
- Great value for your money
- 20 different frequency modes
- Comes with 6 different massage tips
- 16mm strokes
- Comes with a hard carry case
- 4-6 hours of battery life
- Not very powerful, making it unsuitable for deep-tissue massages
- Build quality isn’t up there
The Legiral Le3 Massage Gun is a budget massager that you should be definitely shortlisting. One of the standout features it has is that it is extremely quiet, relatively strong, and also comes with all the accessories you need for it to be practical. It is also fairly cheap, especially when you compare it to massage guns like the Theragun G3Pro and TimTams. The few issues I have with this particular gun is that, despite its 16mm stroke depth and 30lbs stall force, it struggles to massage your deep tissues when you push it slightly harder onto your leg or hand muscles. It does an alright job at being a great all-rounder, though, which is one of the main reasons beginners really pick it over some other similarly priced competitors. As a whole, I gave it a rating of four and a half out of five stars!
