Things I liked:the gun is definitely an accurate representation of its real steel counterpart. its very versatile and perfect for CQB since you can really get close to bunkers and around tight corners without any problem. the range and accuracy of this gun is quite amazing, even though its a rather compact gun, it does have room for a decent sized barrel inside since its got somewhat of a bullpup design. it comes with a black flash hider so you dont have to deal with the orange tip during your woods games, and you dont have to modify your orange tip, you'll have both!
Things I would have changed:the ammo delivery system. The gun works great with the low and mid cap magazines since its just a big spring operated line of bb's... but it mis-feeds an awful lot with the e90 high cap magazines. you Need to get the M4 mag adapter to make this an effective airsoft weapon The trigger pull in Auto is very satisfying, but when you switch the gun into semi-auto, the trigger pull seems excessively long and ineffective. it has to go back a full inch before it will fire in semi.
What others should know:high cap magazine for this gun is really just a glorified gravity fed system, its rather poor. this gun's effectiveness compared to naturally higher cap guns is diminished unless you get the M4 magazine adapter. Also.. you will be almost required to get a red dot sight for this gun if you plan to aim at all. since the iron sights built into the weaver rail on the top of the gun are very small, and virtually useless.
Things I liked:feels great. every thing is solid. great ROF and FPS. great value for the cost. the safety is in a great spot. this gun is fully ambidextrious which is nice. great for CQB
Things I would have changed:The cheesy plastic orange flash hider. the gun comes with a black metal one which can be put on though
What others should know:the magazine is a little tricky at first but loosens up over time. this is a great gun for anyone. the echo 1 model is an upgrade from the classic army one, and is the same as the TM one but alot cheaper
Things I liked:What a great airsoft gun for the price! I am very impressed with the quality of workmanship, the handling and function. It is every bit as good as my Marui but cost almost 50 % less.
Things I would have changed:The instructions for magazine loading are a bit confusing since they describe a different magazine than the one that comes with the gun.
What others should know:I would gladly swap any of my Marui weapons for Echo 1 guns. I also have the G36K Marui and Echo 1 versions and they are identical, and again the price difference makes the choice easy for me.
