Today's product spotlight is pointed directly at the Echo1 Robinson Armament XCR-L Polymer AEG and I plan to illuminate the heck out of it.  For starters, how's about we play a little game I like to call, "What's in the box?"  Luckily, this box does NOT contain Gwyneth Paltrow's beautiful, yet severed head.  It contains the airsoft gun itself, along with a big ol' 9.6V 1500mAH NiMH nunchuck battery, battery charger, warranty stuff, stubby vert grip, mag winder tool, some other tool, and two (2) high capacity m4 magazines.

Echo1 USA sent out news of their newest edition to their AEG line-up yesterday,
the Echo1 SOG-68 Vietnam era carbine.

Certainly a unique variation on the plethora of M4 & M16 rifles available on the market.  I think it's pretty obvious who this rifle is aimed at.  Yep, if you like Vietnam-era Airsoft guns, chances are, you're at least moderately giddy about the release of Echo1's new Vietnam-era AEG.

If you're still interested at this point, best thing to do is to take the jump to see the rest of the photos and get all the specs on the new Echo1 SOG-68...

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.

Echo1 RedStar PKM Machine Gun - Part II

I dig a little deeper with Brian Holt, from Echo1 USA, more so about himself and other stuff and less about the new and upcoming Echo1 PKM airsoft machine gun.  If you haven't seen Part I, you can click here for that.  Echo1 PKM Interview - Part I

Here is part II...

Brian Holt is a nice guy.  Not just because he took the time to bring the Echo1 RedStar PKM Airsoft machine gun over to my house to do an on-camera interview with me, but because he's actually just a nice guy.  Thought I'd point that out for those of you that were curious.  Anyway, here's the interview he & I did, wherein we discussed the very exciting release of the Echo1 RedStar PKM Airsoft machine gun.  It should be out in the summertime, 2012.  Since this IS a prototype, bear in mind that the design & features are subject to change without notice or care about what you think.  So don't get too attached to it just yet.  Easier said than done, I know.  But do try.

If I win Echo1's Team BLACKSHEEP ER-16 Photo Contest, I will raffle off the Echo1 USA ER-16 AEG to one of the people who has liked my photo on the official contest page.  If I win, I will then announce the winner of the prize that I just won either here on the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog and/or on the new Pyramyd Airsoft Facebook Page.  I'm sure some of you might want to know what the point is of me winning the contest if I'm just going to give the prize away as soon as I win it.  Simple.  Bragging rights.  AEGs will come and go.  But bragging rights will live forever.  Like the time I ate three (yes, THREE) Chipotle burritos in under 45 minutes.  There were many witnesses. 

Liking my photo anywhere else other than on Team BLACKSHEEP's official gallery will NOT count towards your entry.   

Just (1) follow the link (either the picture above, or the link below) to the official picture entry on Echo1's Team BLACKSHEEP page, (2) hit the like button, then (3) leave.

Don't even look at the other photos.  To be completely honest, while mine may not be that great either, some of the other entries are pretty bad. 

This plan won't work if you like my photo, but then you go through the rest of the galley and like everyone else's.

Can't we be monogamous just this once?

Echo1 USA is giving away a RedStar LMG, which is their version of an Airsoft RPK, when they reach 25,000 likes on their Facebook page.

Once they reach 25,000, they'll announce one lucky winner.  This means that the odds of winning are one in 25,000.  I hate to be the realist in the crowd here, but those just aren't real great odds.  Luckily, I have come up with a solution and added a few mouth-watering photos of the RedStar LMG for your viewing pleasure after the jump...

I'm having a hard time thinking of anything that looks better, is built better, AND performs better than the Echo1 M240 Bravo Airsoft Medium Machine Gun RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX. Notice that I used the word "and" instead of "or," so before you trolls get on here and start rattling off your various contentions for a better AEG, make sure that it has ALL of those three attributes I mentioned (beauty, build quality & performance), not just one or two of them.

Peep the video of me dominating with the Echo1 M240 Bravo after the jump...

When I got an email announcing the new Echo1 Modular Tactical Carbine (MTC) AEG, I decided that since I don't really live that far from Echo1 USA's headquarters that I would just invite myself over for a little party celebrating the rebirth of a familiar AEG. I took some photos and shot a quick & dirty (no, not that kind of dirty) video of the new G36/M4-style hybrid and convinced Brian Holt from Echo1 to stand next to me while we filmed, which he later regretted.

Check out the Echo1 MTC video after the jump...

I literally just received an email with the deets on the new AEG that Echo1 has been hinting at over the last few days. Some of you may have seen the picture of a dismantled AEG sitting on Brian Holt's workbench on some of the news sites out there and there has been speculation that it was just another G36 or something.

Well, this new Echo1 airsoft gun definitely has some G36-ness in it, but that's not all. Check out the new Pyramyd Airsoft Facebook page to check out the unique new concept my homies at E1 have come up with...
