Today, I'm going to talk dirty a lil bit 'bout the new RedStar AMD-65 AK from Echo1 USA. But first, a few disclaimers.

Disclaimer A) Yes, I know that I already used these photos in a prior blog where I was showing off the new MadBull PBS Mock Suppressors I got. But I was actually having a heck of a time getting the stock flash hider back on the rifle and didn't see the point in re-shooting AND editing the same images when I already had perfectly good shots already done and done.



Disclaimer B) I realize that if this were a real firearm, I'd have the wrong suppressor on there for that particular caliber rifle. Well guess what? This is not a real firearm. This is an Airsoft rifle and I thought it looked cool so go ahead and "shut your mouth when you're talking to me!" (name the movie)

Disclaimer C) I realize that for a proper review, illustrating the way the gun actually looks when you pull it from the box would require me to put the flash hider back on this rifle. BUT, since I opted not to reshoot these pics as noted in Disclaimer A), I didn't have any shots of the rifle in this configuration. Secondly, I was having a heck of a time getting the flash hider to thread properly on the end of the rifle and got impatient, so I said, "Dash it all!" and decided to forego any pictures with the flash hider properly installed.


Alright. That's all the disclaimers I've got for now. The actual review of the Echo1 AMD-65 AK begins after the jump...

Very exciting news about me, Brian Holt & a trip to SS Airsoft. 
Just watch the video.  I took the time to make it ridiculous. 
Please take the time to troll me as a reward.

Here, today, I've got what I believe is a little treat for the AK fans out there.  Not only do I have the new Echo1 AMD-65 Hungarian AK AEG, but I've taken the liberty of outfitting it with the new MadBull PBS-04 AK Mock Suppressor (unreleased to the public at the time of this posting).  The two items, separately, look pretty awesome, but when paired together, they're downright wicked.

MadBull Airsoft was kind enough to send me some pre-production samples of their new PBS mock suppressors or barrel extensions, and my my, aren't they breathtaking!   Even for pre-production samples, these things may as well be the final production versions.  The CNC machine work on them is outstanding.  In case you weren't aware, the PBS suppressors were originally designed for use with AK47 or variants thereof (Commie gunz!), but with the Airsoft versions having 14mm negative (Counter-Clockwise) threading, you can put them on whatever compatible guns you want!  But be wise with your choice.  Not all guns were created equal. 
The model on the left is the MadBull PBS-04 AK Mock Suppressor and the model on the right is the MadBull PBS-01 AK Mock Suppressor.  They each feature a combination of smooth and textured finishes and are machined from high quality T-6061 aluminum. 

They are hollow inside and feature MadBull's patented internal design which allows them to meet BATFE's approval.  The samples I was sent were very solid, possessing a pretty good amount of weight, each weighing a bit over 1lb, but the fine folks at MadBull have informed me that the final versions will be much lighter.  As you'll see below, I've already tested them out on my Beta Project Magpul AK and didn't find the weight to be an issue for me (and believe me, I'm far from being hulked out or otherwise in shape).

Brand New Airsoft Guns from Echo1

At the close of our day participating in Guillermo Lopez's Black Polo Operators Day at Code Red Airsoft Park in Colton, California, I had the chance to talk with Brian Holt from Echo1 USA about some of their brand new & upcoming Airsoft guns, including the never-before-seen Echo1 OMG tactical RPK, the Echo1 AMD-65 AEG, and, of course, the Echo1 PKM machine gun.

Here are some new videos from Brian Holt from Echo1 USA, featuring not only myself, but some new Echo1 Airsoft Guns.  Brian Holt & I attended the Black Polo Operator Day at Code Red Airsoft Park, organized by our good friend & fellow gearwhore, Guillermo Lopez.

This is video footage of Brian & I, along with the rest of our Black Polo Operator Team, collectively known as the Backstreet Boys, doing some work at Code Red.  Brian is using his Echo1 PKM machine gun, not currently available on the market, and I am using the Echo1 M240 Bravo machine gun
